To say that James teaches Basic Photography classes well is an understatement.I registered for his Photography 101 class armed only with enthusiasm to learn and my Nikon D40 cam, never mind if I had absolutely zero knowledge on the basics of photography and camera operations. The fee I paid for was minimal, and I kinda expected to learn only the basics. To my surprise, I greatly enjoyed the "class", learned the basics and much more! Teaching photography came naturally to James, since he is an English teacher by profession. He was generous enough to share personal tips that may help us take better photos. I got much more than what I bargained for. At 500 pesos, the class was definitely a steal!After BDP class, I got hooked and took the rest of James' classes. Aside from the enjoyment of learning photography, I am also glad to have found new friends through the classes.For all these, (Myles, I'll say it again) I will forever be grateful to James. :-)
I have learned a lot from sir james, after attending the Basic and landscape. The session are very affordable. I hope Im still looking forward to other sessions.
So much has been said about how great (concise, high-yield, cheap, simple, effective) the lessons are, and what an impressive (talented, effective, inspiring, etc) teacher James is.I'm gonna keep this simple and say that James is a very *very* generous person. He unselfishly shares EVERYTHING he knows about making good photographs, and he is happy when his students are happy about the progress they have made.This is why we keep coming back for more.:)
i just have a question, the rates you stated above are only for one session? how many sessions do you conduct per firstname.lastname@example.org
Yep, one session per class. Another way of looking at it is that all of the courses I offer are part of one big Photography 101 lesson for people who are just beginning their passion for photography.
hi! can i still attend classes even without a laptop or a netbook? thnx!
hello! what does it mean nga ulit pag may asterisk? ex: 2 Students*thanks!
Hello!! i am planning to give my girlfriend a anniversary gift and this photo session will be perfect... how much does it cost?? My girlfriend has a Nikon D700 or D800 i think...
@ Princess,The asterisk marks for the number of people who has already paid for the indicated class.@ Yz:The prices are already indicated above, after the description of each lesson.
@ SamanthaYes, laptop is optional... unless you'll take an editing class (Natural, HDR, BnW), where it's mandatory.
hi! Im deaf. If I will bring my sign language interpreter, will he pay the fee also? Please advise. Thanks.
Hi Eric. In your case, I think your interpreter might have to pay as well because he will be learning the lessons the same time as you do. Hope to see you soon. :)
im interested to join the class since im liking photography, but UP is way far from my place. hope to attend in your class.
question bos..my gf and i are interested ok lng ba na isang cam lng dalhin namin...dslr xa...
Yeah, no problem with that. In fact a lot of couples who attended my class did that. :)
