by B. Hatoz

I really  appreciate the “approachability” of your instructors.  I’ve taken many of your classes and each of the instructors have been just great to work with. It’s always intimidating as an amateur photographer to work with such accomplished people in their field, however, you have all been so welcoming and warm, and I feel that you truly want to share your bountiful knowledge. I ALWAYS come away from class not only learning so much about the subject matter but also so inspired!

H. Noyes

I’ve enjoyed so many of your classes and I love the opportunities you provide to hone my craft!  

C. Decatur

I really enjoy the classes available through Capital Photography Center, the variety they offer covers anything you could be looking for. The instructors are all extremely knowledge and professional. It does not matter what skill level you may be, they take the time to engage everyone. I have learned so much from each class I have taken so far and use it daily in my photography.
