If you want professional results from your camera, you have come to the right place. I teach the use of the latest mirrorless digital camera equipment so that you will be able to get what you paid for from your camera and lens. Below: Nikon Z50 & f 28-300mm. Results from very modestly priced equipment used skillfully.

Photography is a blend of art and science. It really, really helps to know something of both.

Your Instructor…

My photography classes last about four hours. I often teach at a coffee shop in downtown Bakersfield or as arranged. For individual classes, bring a friend.

Be certain your camera has a fully charged battery and memory card for class. Class can be really dull without a working camera.

I also teach Introduction to Photoshop CC, ON1, and DxO PhotoLab 7 Elite. All photographs and illustrations in my Kindle books and web pages were created by Ed Ruth.

Class cost is $200 for up to two people and lasts about four hours or until ALL your questions are answered…
A bargain! About ten times less expensive per day than a plumber!

Photography can be fun, profitable, creative, and technically superior at the same time. Contact me for a custom one-to-one camera class in Bakersfield, California. Please text me at: 661-303-9210 (preferred) or email me using: for an appointment.
