Northern Exposures Photography is now teaching classes!
No matter if your just starting out or a seasoned photographer, we have one-on-one training courses to help you advance in various areas of photography.
Each course is designed to narrow in on different aspects and techniques used by the professionals. We will help give you a boost in the right direction through hands on training with your own equipment and help you achieve your photography goals.

Courses generally run 1-2 hours of field training or until the instructor feels confident that the student has achieved their personal learning goal from the elected course they are taking.
