Experience level: BEGINNER

Did you get a new camera, but don't know where to start?  Instead of scouring Youtube and Google and getting frustrated with where to start, book a beginning class with me for solid, personal, face-to-face training!  We will begin in the classroom as we cover the basics of exposure, composition, and lighting, and then travel into the field to give you hands-on assignments that will help you apply what you learn.  Classes are available in full-day and half-day sessions.

About the instructor:   Cathy Anderson is a second-generation photographer with more than ten years of experience, based in Morganton, NC.  She has earned the prestigious awards of Certified Professional Photographer, Master Photographer, and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America.  Her photographic specialties include adventure, landscape, and “sportrait” (sports portraits with off-camera flash) photography, and she seeks to push the envelope with dynamic off-camera lighting and creativity. 

She enjoys photographing extreme sports and athletes in hard-to-reach locations, while utilizing off-camera lighting to set her “sportrait” work apart in a largely natural light world.  In her portraits, she focuses on the psychological connection between the photographer and client, working to reveal a client’s true personality in her portraiture.  Her award-winning photography has been published and featured in art galleries, national news outlets and magazines, and the PPA Loan Collection, and she has a great passion for teaching and preserving the roots of traditional photographic artistry.
