Dear Santa,

I was good this year. This year for Christmas I want a new camera. I bright, shiny, SLR camera so I can take amazing pictures.
Signed, Me

Does this look familliar to you? Is a new SLR camera on the top of your wish list this year? What better to go along with your new camera than some lessons on how to use it? Keep in mind, taking good pictures involves more than just pushing the big shiny silver button. Tell Santa or a loved one know that, along with that new camera, you would love a gift certificate for my Basic Photography class (perhaps in a stocking?). Starting this spring (as soon as that house gets finished) I'll be teaching some new classes along with the Basic class....I've got some exciting things planned.

(drawn by me, one handed, while holding a sleeping baby)

Even better, why not win one? Just leave a comment on this post and one lucky winner will win a gift certificate for my Basic Photography class ($100 value, woohoo!) or one of my other photography classes I will be teaching in my new studio this spring. Keep it for yourself or gift it to a friend. Winner will be randomly picked on Tuesday morning, December 1st (my birthday!)

I'm just getting into photography and have been taking pics for friendly lately. I would LOVE to take one of your classes. I live in podunk Silt, Colorado so photo opportunities are rare and inbetween. I would totally make the drive for a one or two day class (maybe a crash course??). I also have a few friends who I'm pretty sure I could get to sign up. My family lives in Orem, so it would be a good excuse to see them as well. Would be honored, PICK ME! ;) Happy Thanksgiving!
