Hi all!

 

My name is Colleen Kelly and I am a new Rochestarian hoping to get the most out of the city. When I visited the table at TEDx yesterday, I asked about photography courses. I am an amateur photographer either looking to teach my skills to others or to further my learning. 

 

Would there be any interest in a beginner photography course? I could offer an intro to the topic and discuss technical aspects as well as artistic ones. 

As a student I would be interested in drawing, painting (especially spray paint art!) or really anything artistic.

I look forward to getting to know everybody!

Hi Colleen,

I can't tell you right now how much interest there is in having a photography class. Hopefully we'll find out because of your generous offer. We have many others who have also offered to teach other classes but we haven't had time to start organizing and promoting them. That may change soon if we get a volunteer (hint, hint) or after we rent a space, which may be very soon.

But we have talked about setting aside spacefor a small photo / video studio.  But we don't know how much space amount space we'll need or what equipment it'll require and if can afford it.  Can you advise us on that?

BTW, we also want to have a small area set aside for framing pictures because someone has donated a very nice mat cutter.)

Hi Colleen, it was very nice to meet you at the TED event, and welcome to Rochester!

Also thank you for introducing yourself on our forums, and offering to teach a photography class. I think Rob has done a good job of explaining that we will have to see what the interest level is once we've opened, but we have discussed having a small media studio as he has said as well.

In either case I hope that you will stay in touch, and we will certainly keep you updated. Did you join our email list Monday? I can't remember. There is a email join widget on the front page in the upper left. That will ensure that you get all the latest updates.

See you around!
