Master Your Camera Photography Course with Marie-Claire



This course is a ten (or 11) week course, designed to help you learn the technical side of your dslr or mirroless camera and to become so familiar with all of the main buttons, dials and settings that they become second nature, freeing you up to execute your creative vision without having to worry about which setting does what.

The cost is $300 for ten weeks of online evening classes held on zoom which will be held on Wednesday evenings for 1 to 1.5 hours from 630 pm. If you’re local (Opotiki, BOP, NZ) and would like to add an 11th class which will be held in person in the form of a half day photo walk for extra mentoring and practice this class is an additional $50 so $350 in total for the 11 classes.
