I can truthfully say I got my money’s worth out of Saturdays Workshop. I got out of my normal shooting zone. I got better shooting ideas by being with a group. I got expert instruction from someone who has “Been there and done that.” Got most wins for me in digital competition at Memphis Camera Club – Barry Baskin

Testimonial

I had the awesome opportunity to attend Blair Ball’s “Street Photography” class.   I found it informative and fun, and even got 10000 steps in as an added bonus!   We even enlisted one of the participants to pose as a model to add extra interest.  After lunch we met for instruction on using Adobe Lightroom, which was very informative.   We were even able to show our  work from class and vote on the best of the best!

I highly recommend attending Blair Ball’s classes.  His instruction is easy to follow and you will walk away with much more than you came with!  I intend to take several more to sharpen my skills in my fun hobby! Tammy Alford

“Blair was one of our volunteer photographers at our Rock for Love 4 weekend of concerts that raised money for the Church Health Center. Blair’s photos are amazing and he was quick to share them with us so that we could make the most of our post-event publicity. Blair was easy to work with and his photos, both of the performers and the concert-goers, was really something special. He has a knack for catching the grit of a sweaty night at the Hi Tone and the pure fun of a run through the sprinkler (it was very hot at our day show).” Marvin Stockwell, Public Relations Manager, Church Health Center
