Hoboken Photography School Expands

8/23/2010:

Great suite of digital photography training options available!

New offerings include destination workshops

Beyond The Photograph, Hudson County’s premiere photography school, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their programs to include destination photography workshops in Stratton, Vermont. During the weekend of October first through third, Beyond The Photograph is offering three-day intensive workshops in landscape, portraiture and digital photography on the grounds of the Stratton Mountain Resort.

“I am proud of the program that we’ve built here in Hudson County,” said Beyond The Photograph founder Craig Wallace Dale, “It seems like a natural fit to take our program to a spectacular location and offer a high end, all-inclusive experience.”

Participants will enjoy Stratton’s private rooms and meals while immersing themselves in learning the art of photography. Participants will choose from three programs:

  • Introduction to the DSLR, taught by Dale;
  • The Digital Landscape, taught by award winning photographer and Beyond The Photograph partner Les Jorgensen and
  • Portraiture: From the Exotic to the Local, taught by 2009 Lucie Awards Discovery of the Year, John Delaney.

Each workshop is limited to 15 participants for maximum instructor interaction.

Added adult classes at Beyond the Photo

In addition to the Vermont workshops, Beyond The Photograph is currently accepting enrollment for their fall Digital Storytelling classes taught in their Hoboken studio. Adult classes are held on Saturday mornings, Monday and Tuesday evenings with a special “Moms” class (babies welcome) held on Monday afternoons.

“Our twelve-week program is designed to be a fun way to learn how to get the camera out of the snapshot mode” Dale notes, “It’s a fun way to discover all of the potential for creativity in these amazing cameras.”

Students in the Hoboken classes will learn light and lenses, shutter speeds and f-stops, composition and flash as well as how to get the most out of the digital files they create. “Best of all,” says Dale, “it’s a lot of fun.”

Classes begin August 28th and are limited to six participants in each session. Please visit the web site beyondthephoto.com or call 201-681-8400 for more information. Beyond the Photograph is located at 720 Monroe Street – Suite E-501B (5th Floor).

Enjoy the classes!

Thank you for the positive feedback on our Introduction to the dSLR classes. We take great pride in offering a great learning experience for all of our students.

I field dozens of e-mails each day and to the best of my knowledge am caught up with all of my incoming correspondence. If I have missed anyone I sincerely apologize. Of course, our wired world isn’t fail safe and that is why I have posted my phone number in the Contact Us section of the website beyondthephoto.com

Here is an email address that never seems to fail: beyondthephotograph@gmail.com

Thanks to the entire Hoboken411 community for your continued support. -Craig

I’d like to take the class if they’d just respond to my emails? What kind of business sense is that? I’ve emailed them three times.

I took the Intro class for adults that is referenced.. It was well worth it. I was new to the SLR and Photo world. The small class size was great! I was skeptical at first but everyone was great and in the same boat. So I never felt bad asking dumb questions. the key to the class is to do the work…. and you’ll be a better photographer. Craig is great at explaining the concepts you need to be good. I thought he was really great.

I’m actually waiting for him to do a “Level II”. I’ll be signing up.

Take the class if you want to learn about photography in a great setting.

I agree with mrn122. The Intro to the DSLR is EXCELLENT. I got so much out of it that I had my wife take the class. So many classes I have taken outside of school have been lackluster but Craig is a great teacher and the small class size allows him to run through everyone’s weekly homework in front of the class. Couldn’t recommend it more highly.[quote comment=”196465″]I took the Intro class for adults that is referenced.. It was well worth it. I was new to the SLR and Photo world.

If you are new with an SLR and actual photography, I would avoid small classes, actually. Check out John Hedgecoe’s “The New Manual of Photography” first (out of print, but you can buy a used copy cheap on Amazon) to get the concepts down and then take a big class. The New School in New York offered one that was great to start out with.

Small class size won’t help that much until you get a bit of time under your belt, in my opinion.

I think instruction helps a bunch, but honestly, going through the concepts of photography first (like Hedgecoe’s book) will prime you for some instruction on the things that really matter, like composition.

Anyone taken a class with these guys? New with the SLR, this seems like a good idea, small class sizes, and at first blush, their credentials seem good…
