Landscape Photography Class

Just wanted to let everyone know that my Landscape Photography Class in Irvine starting July 8 is now open for enrollment!

This class is, by far, the most bang for your buck when it comes to photography classes. It's only $99 for a 4-week long class (1 class per week) at 10 total hours of instruction - including 2.5 hours out in the field to shoot with me!

Topics covered include shutter speed, aperture, ISO, manual control and manual metering, polarizing filters, neutral density filters, split ND filters, composition, equipment, field techniques, how to use histograms, predicting conditions, workflow, post-production, student image critique, output, image backup and more!! You really can't get any more information for your money!

Class size is limited to 18 students, so sign up before it's too late! Sign up here today!

Free Seminar

I'm happy to announce that I will be offering a FREE seminar at the Orange County Great Park on Sunday, May 16th from 10:00am-11:30am! That's's FREE!

I will be covering the photography basics of shutter speed, aperture and ISO in a beginner-oriented class. If you've previously received private lessons from me or you've attended my class at the Irvine Fine Arts Center or my seminar at Shutterstories, then this will simply be review for you. But to anyone who wants to learn shutter speed, aperture and ISO for the first time or anyone who wants to brush up on it, this class is for you!

Space is very limited and seats must be reserved. Click here for more information.

Seminar Ideas

In lieu of my on-location photography workshops, I'm cooking up some new classroom-setting seminars throughout OC, San Diego County and Riverside County. Before I set them in stone, though, I'd like to know what you'd like to learn!

For a class that's maybe 2-3 hours at around $40-$50 a head, what would you like to learn? Manual exposure, filters, advanced composition, something else...what? I'd love to hear!

Please send an email to info [at] nickcarverphotography [dot] com if you'd like to be heard!

Thank you!
