FAQs

Currently, all classes are taught in person in our Tulsa studio. I’d love to come to your community if there is enough interest! Contact me if you have a suggestion or opportunity for speaking or teaching.
No. These are very interactive classes and best experienced in person. But never say never! 😉
In my experience, small classes mean more interaction and learning. If a class is sold out, please get on the wait list. If there is enough demand, additional dates will be added.
If there is interest, yes! This quick survey will help me schedule more topics and classes based on community interest and availability.

No. However, I do recommend taking our iPhone Photography classes in order (there’s simply too much content to cover otherwise!).
