#672 New Photo Classes in Ottawa

On Sunday we held a social for our Pro Program photo students. These students take photo classes, meet with me to track progress regularly and receive ongoing support by email and phone as they pursue their photography goals.

Stories, photos and support were shared over burgers at the BBQ. Smiles all around…
