Whether you are a new digital photographer, a seasoned veteran, or coming from a film photography background, we offer many different classes, courses, and workshops to help you to become more comfortable and better at taking photographs.

If you're new to your camera, or having trouble getting your photos to really pop, then we can help! Our offerings are fun and packed with solid information. Generally, we avoid "tips & tricks" and focus on helping you to understand the foundations of photography, and how to build from there to become a better photographer. Not only will we help you improve your technical and creative skills, we'll also help you to develop your own style, so that you can create images that are uniquely yours.

If you're new to timwaitephoto.com, you might want to start with the Beginning Digital SLR Photo course, and branch-out from there. If you feel like you're already comfortable enough with how your camera works, then any of our other offerings might be suitable.
