Upcoming Dates hosted by Diane Jarvi
Saturday the 27th of August 2022
Beginners Class - Nelson-Atkins Museum Sculpture Park - 10.30am - 3 hours
This class is designed to give you a solid understanding of the fundamental basics of
photography; the ‘nuts and bolts’ stuff that will set you on the path to understanding your
camera and how to create great shots. Armed with these fundamentals, you will have the skills
and the confidence to approach any style of photography, from portraits to landscapes and
everything in between.
I have worked in photography for the past 17 years. I shoot a variety of genres of photography including portraiture, live performance, events and weddings. I received my BFA in photography from Northern Illinois University. I went on to receive my MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I work in both film and digital and large format in addition to 35 mm. I have worked for newspapers, studios and blogs but for the most part I have been self employed. My specialty is location lighting and I pride myself on my versatility. Because of my education and experience, I have a strong understanding of the technical side of photography and how to achieve desired images.

James M Vaiknoras
Self taught, Jim has bases his work on his natural story telling ability, embracing the concepts of patience, anticipation and empathy. “ Every photograph is a three way conversation.” He sees photography as less of an art form and more of a way to see the world. “After working as a photojournalist for so long, I can’t imagine doing it any other way.”
