Nice work.

That’s what I thought when people sent in photos from the Macrophotography Class with Louise Tanguay.

Louise‘s last two workshops with us sold out and for good reason! She is a well-loved teacher and superb photographer with many publications and accomplishments to her name.

We’re lucky to have her – she travels and teaches all over the world. A few students insisted we bring her back soon for another workshop. We’re working on it!

See a small sample of student’s work in this blog post.

#816 Ottawa’s Macro Photography Class

In June we ran the Macro Photography Class with Louise Tanguay. The course filled quickly and people loved it.

This is Louise’s first class with us and she brings with her vast teaching and photo expertise. Our students were lucky to learn from Louise:

I loved this course and Louise is a great teacher.

The challenges made me experiment with angles I never would have explored otherwise. This workshop was great because it pushed me out of my comfort zone. It was so helpful !

I found Louise a wonderful ”teacher” if I can call her like that. The way she made the presentations and explanation had a major impact in my photography.

I thank you both for the enthusiasm you gave me! I think I am becoming a better photographer. How about that!!!

The challenges forced me to explore new techniques and aspects of photography… it opened many new doors for me.

I enjoyed this workshop tremendously and I learned so much. Thank you.

Learned lots. Thank you very much… and had fun too…

…great course and Louise was so awesome and I got to learn a lot.

Stay tuned for more courses!
