PhotoArts Marin’s classes are for students who own or be about to purchase a digital camera capable of Manual Settings. Assistance with that purchase is available.
PhotoArts Marin’s classes and workshops are Dedication to Teach, to Create and Preserve the Craft and Art of Photography. A quality
educational experience is dependent on the expertise, the communication skills of the instructor and their willingness to freely share their knowledge. Most importantly, a teacher must have the ability to resist the all too common "fake it till you make it" approach. This is all too common and leads to endless unsolvable problems and the students giving up because they they don't think they are intelligent enough to get it or that it is too complicated or too much work. All introductory classes are taught by me = Glen Graves with 30+ years experience as a commercial / personal photographer teacher / mentor.
PhotoArts Marin’s private classes are taught in the student's home and arranged to work with the students schedule and goals.
PhotoArts Marin’s classes are not underwritten by any manufacturer or distributor and will never be.
PhotoArts Marin’s Micro classes (coming in the spring of 2016) are small so that questions can be asked and answered successfully.
PhotoArts Marin’s Private Classes are custom designed to meet each student's goals and scheduled to work with each student's time frame.
I have worked with with Fortune 500 companies nation wide such as GM, Ford and Chrysler, US Air, the Lear Corporation, the New York Port Authority, Baker Furniture, Lazy Boy Furniture and many of the top wineries in Napa and Sonoma Counties..
My work has been repeatedly published world wide in such publications as Marin Magazine, the Robb Report, the Wine Spectator, Architectural Digest and the New York Times. I hope I will have the opportunity to share the knowledge I have gained with these many many years of experience.
