Re: Adult Continuing Photography Courses

While you are waiting for your Canadian colleagues to respond, in the UK we have several options, so maybe some of this might applicable too.

First is evening school where all sorts of further education and skills training is available. Details are usually found in our public libraries and they tend to be very good value, but do rely on having a good teacher. These courses are often to be found in colleges during the day too, both full time and part time. They range from short 'get you started' courses to the full length courses that end up with a formal qualification.

Then there are the courses you see advertised in the back of photographic magazines. Sometimes these are local, and sometimes they are based a short distance away, and sometimes quite a long way away. Some are holiday based.

Then there are the photographic clubs. Often the members will give ad hoc presentations on various aspects of photography.

Last, but not least is Pixalo! You will find most questions will find an answer here.

Re: Adult Continuing Photography Courses

Hello Sarah! I don't know where in Alberta you are, but the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary offers some continuing ed classes in photography- but they aren't cheap! Alternately, The Camera Store downtown Calgary offers weekend seminars in various topics throughout the year- they are usually around fifty dollars for a three-hour class with a pro, and I have heard they are very informative. Hope that helps

Re: Adult Continuing Photography Courses

Hi there
It depends what you are looking for. If you want a more comprensive course on basic photography then I suggest looking at any of the continuing Ed course offered at your local school district. Not every school district will have it as it depends on the size of the school district as well as if there are anyone interested in teaching those courses. Once you find a district close to you that offers a photography course (usually 8-12 lessons) find out who the instructor is and google up his/her website to see if you like what you see. A local continue Ed course will take you through basic composition, metering, basic-basic flash and such. You mostly likely will end up learning and shooting in manual rather than in auto or program after such a course.
Workshop in local camera stores are also a good option, but they are short in the number of day(s) so things are more packed, so it helps if you already know the basics. I prefer the continue Ed course because you have more time in between classes to work on shooting assignments while in a workshop you will be very limited in the variety of shots you can take unless it is a very well prepared workshop.
Art school are great as well, and this is where you learn the most, but they are costly in money as well as time. If you can afford the time and the money these course are the best.

good luck
Cheers
