  • Any kind of camera equipment regardless of style or brand is welcome
  • Broad range of topics ranging from brand new camera owners, to more experienced.

We do not SELL equipment, we don’t want you to make a long term commitment to weeks of classes, we just want to give you the knowledge you need to Make a Great Photo,  not just “Take a Picture.”

Manager, State of MI

Now I can really fully use and enjoy this amazing camera I invested in. I was so confused. Mark really helped turn some lights on.


HS Teacher

The whole exposure thing was so crazy to me. Mark explains it and demonstrates it and then let me try it. I think I got it. I can hardly wait to get out and do some more shooting.


IT Manager

I got the camera to take pictures of my Grand children. I’ve been leaving it in Auto mode and hoped the shots turned out. After a couple of classes at SmarterPics, I am finally getting the shots I have been wanting!
