Learn the Secrets of Digital Photography from a PRO!

Many people, companies and schools offer “photography 101 classes“… but few have the real skills to perform at 1:1 private custom teaching.  Jared Brick has spent the last 9 years refining his photographic teaching style to fit all levels on every camera make & model to fit in a ton of useful info into each private lesson.  Past clients have stated feeling more confident, creative, comfortable and inspired with new camera skills to practice.

It is a process that truly works and some consider Jared the human camera manual!
