Scheduled Classes

I’m very excited to be offering two of my favorite classes at Newspace Center for Photography this summer – sign up through Newspace by clicking the links!

The Magic & Mechanics of Travel Photography

Description: Join world traveler and photographer Rebecca Benoit, as she shares her experiences and recommendations to prepare you for your next travel adventure. Travel photography has two sides to it–the esoteric side of being mentally prepared to capture meaningful images, plus the practical side of gear, editing, and sharing. Rebecca will guide you to develop your personal photographic ‘shot list’ and make gear choices that work with your priorities, and the realities of traveling.

Prerequisites: None. Please bring ANY camera – including phone! Please also bring some images from past travel expeditions.

Two Sundays July 9 & 16 | 12-3pm $160

Lightroom Essentials

Description: Baffled by how to organize, backup and share your images using Lightroom? This class is for you! Learn how the Lightroom catalog system works – you’ll love it once you understand it! You’ll also learn basic workflow (import, rating, search, export) and file and backup management.

Prerequisites: Basic computer skills. Bring your laptop with Lightroom or use a Newspace Mac computer.

Session 1: Saturday August 26 | 10am-5pm $225

Session 2: Tuesday & Thursday September 19 & 21 | 6-9pm $225


Also remember! Even if there isn’t a class scheduled that you may be interested in, I can always work with you one-on-one – online or in person! – or create a class for a group that you put together about many aspects of photography, Lightroom etc, or, even spreadsheets and word processing! Just ask.

Rebecca, the Lightroom class you are currently teaching at Advance Camera is excellent! I’ve learned more today than in years of being the unofficial Adobe Crash Test Dummy.

 I just completed the Women’s Workshop about 3 hours ago. I am in awe of the women in my group and completely in awe with the instructor Rebecca Benoit.

It was an amazing educational experience that left me feeling confident and ready to tackle some of the challenges I was having with light and exposure.

This workshop was one of the better things I have done for myself. She helped each person with their personal camera explore the features, shortcuts and just get comfortable shooting with it. I will pursue photography with a whole new “eye” for the unusual photo that tells the story I want to.

Thank you Rebecca!!!
