What To Expect:

Once your session is booked, we discuss many topics of interest so that we can determine what you wish to learn and what areas you struggle the most in. From there, we develop you a customized curriculum based on those topics. We'll discuss any gear or equipment you may need to bring with you or that you may need to borrow from us for the day. Then simply come on in for your session...and plan to learn like crazy!

What Others Have Said:

Teri W. - Crystal is very knowledgeable about photography and is a fantastic teacher! My mentoring session was in her studio, which is comfortable and a great learning environment. Crystal explained the basics of photography in an easy-to-understand format and took the time to make sure I understood what I was learning. She even took time to familiarize herself with my camera and taught e how to use and apply what I was learning with it. It was a very comfortable environment for me to learn and ask questions. I truly enjoyed my time learning and feel more confident taking pictures now. If you're interested in photography and need guidance, I recommend you contact Crystal!!!

Jeri B. - If you are looking for a photographer to mentor you, Crystal is awesome! Working with Crystal I was able to learn and review so much! She definitely teaches at your skill level and I got so much out of her mentoring! Thank you so much, Crystal, for helping us fellow photographers out!

Kim M. - I took a beginner's photography class at Forever Me Photography a couple of years ago. We started out with the basics (ISO, aperture, shutter speed, lighting, etc.). From there, we learned more advanced techniques like shooting in manual and different priority modes. Afterwards, we were able to take photos and practice what we were taught. Crystal taught at a speed that was easy for all of us to understand. The class was well organized with a Power Point presentation (on a large screen) and a corresponding workbook that we were able to take home with us. I learned a lot from this class. It has made me a better photographer and made my love of photography much deeper. If you're wanting to learn how to be a better photographer and use your camera better, I would highly recommend this class!
