Amanda Gladish - I am highly interested in attending your basic DSLR workshop on learning more about our own camera & how to use it. Do you ever do private lesson, I ask because my family & I just planned a trip to Germany middle of next month. I have a canon rebel t5i (I believe T5I but it maybe a T5) that I would really like to take with us so we can take pictures of our trip & I would like to have more knowledge about using the camera (more than just on the auto setting).

Thank you,

Annie - I am interested in attending your class in April, please send me more info

hesselphotography - Annie, Thanks for your interest in my class. I will send you an email. Thank you

Kristyn ward - Hi I was interested in one of your classes. Could you tell me when your next one is? Thanks

da da - I sent you an email!

Erin Green - I would like to know when your next class is scheduled and, if open slots, how to register.

Margaret Albert - How young a student will you teach? My daughter’s 10 year old step daughter shocked us all yesterday at a wedding reception when she walked around with my daughter’s I phone taking pics. The quality of the pictures – knowledge of patterns particularly- seemed advanced for her age.
She lives in Hammond but I’d be willing to get her where she needs to go.
Thanks so much!
Margaret Albert

da da - Thanks for inquiring! I will send you an email 🙂

Erin swart - I am looking for some photography classes! I live in Thibodaux. Thanks

Amanda - Good morning. I was wondering if you still offered your photography class?

da da - I sent you an email, but a class will likely be scheduled after the first of the year.
