Max Photography Studio | Courses

Beginners Photography Course 

Hi there, 

If you have a camera and don't know how to use it or just want to take better photos, this course will be perfect for you. You don't need any previous experience or a fancy expensive camera to learn how to take good photos! Courses will take place over a 3 month period, the theoretical classes will take place at the studio once a week and the practical classes once every two weeks.

The detailed program is presented at the end of this description. 

Each class will take 1-2 hours. We will go thru everything starting with theory and settings. You will get to learn how to use your camera (you won't need a manual), and then move towards getting creative with posing, composition, and editing.

Max Photography Studio is a new photography studio in town. I just relocated recently from Romania and I have more than 15 years of experience as a professional photographer and 5 years experience in teaching photography and editing ( CNFPA accredited). 

With this course, you will learn in a friendly environment. We'll have beverages, muffins and a lot of fun!  Most important you will learn photography by practicing and I will break it down so everybody can understand because I know very well that is not as simple as one may think. 


Each person will receive several books in electronic format free of charge, also the opportunity to practice at real events and photo shootings.

Maximum places available: 10.

The cost of the Beginners Photography Course is $400 and can be paid in 2 payments, the deposit of $200 will be considered first payment. Payments can be made at the studio or by e-transfer at 

The studio is located at 5014 50th Street  Lloydminster. Hours of operations: Mon-Sat 10:00-18:00
