Step into a world of photography…

where the possibilities are endless.

Let Midwest Photography Workshops provide you with the foundation you need to effectively pursue photography as a hobby, or at a professional level. Our Fundamentals of Photography Class (#101) covers exposure, shutter speeds and f/stops. Learn composition techniques such as: the rule of thirds, leading lines, S curves, and much more. We will guide you through the various accessories and additional equipment. Midwest Photography Workshops specialize in small class sizes. That means personal attention as you need it.

Our instructors are passionate, experienced, and are up to date in the ever changing world of digital photography. Come away with a new understanding of your camera and just what all of those buttons, dials and settings do. You purchased a DSLR camera, let Midwest show you all it can do. Let’s move beyond the fully automatic functions of the Green Box setting.

Photography Courses

Our extensive selection of evening classes will give photographers of all levels the opportunity to improve their skills and learn new techniques. Most classes meet 4 to 6 sessions, once a week, typically from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Many classes include an all-day shooting or computer lab printing.

Photography 101

This class is designed for the beginner who has recently purchased a digital SLR camera, a mirrorless camera, or for people looking for a refresher on technique.

Lightroom 210

Learn to download, categorize, and manipulate images with speed and ease.


Midwest Photography workshops offers many workshops that will allow you put your photographic skills to use. Our workshops will take you either into the studio or on location for day long shooting and instruction.

Class size

We always keep the participant-to-instructor ratio low (typically 10 to 1 or less).


Most workshops will run from 10 am to 5 PM. Saturday and/or Sunday.

Some weekends will have 2 different workshops (one Saturday & one Sunday) but of a similar theme to allow you to get the most out of your weekend.
