Pro opportunity
Enjoy the chance of accessing pro tips. Build your portfolio and impress your friends. Past student Valerie Wutti opened doors after her Pro Hockey Photo course in 2008. She developed contacts with the 67s and now receives a 67s media pass to support her official Ottawa 67s Fan Blog. She has also published two books on the Ottawa 67s.

"Is this a digital or film course?" It is a photography course - about creating better photos. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Most participants bring digital cameras. Some choose film. Some bring both! Having people with both technologies on a course helps to compare the differences. Do not worry about your equipment - all you need is a 35mm SLR camera and lens(es) - no "point and shoot" cameras please.

Course Instructor: Harry Nowell is a photographer providing editorial, commercial and stock photography to clientsfor almost 20 years.
