Then you need to attend the Amazon Seller One-Day Bootcamp! Have you wondered how Amazon manages to have nearly every product imaginable available for sale?

Become a better photographer and stop using your camera's "Auto" mode in 1 day. Have you ever wondered why after spending hundreds of dollars on the latest cameras you still can't get photos you're really proud of? We're not talking about the party snapshots you post on Facebook, but stunning landscapes that can be considered fine art and grab attention for longer than 5 seconds. Learn to capture beautiful photos and never miss a memory again. This 2.5 hour class is a crash course in digital photography. Taught in our Los Angeles studio in small groups of 15-20 students, you'll learn what all those knobs and dials on your DSLR do, the settings to use in any lighting condition, and even what kind of camera to buy if you don't already have one. You'll understand concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field and shutter speed, and probably never want to use the "automatic mode" again. No prior experience or camera equipment is necessary to attend. Just a desire to improve your photography skills. Take this class for yourself or gift it to a friend who's got a photographic itch to scratch. Frequently Asked Questions Who are you guys? We're a team of 3 passionate photographers who have taught this class since Fall 2010. Our professional experience includes landscape, fine art, architecture, food and fashion photography. Browse our main website to view some of our work. What's the class schedule? This is a 2.5 hour class held most Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-12:30pm. It's also offered on some weeknights from 6pm-8:30pm. The dates are scheduled approximately 1 month in advance, and more dates are added every few weeks. What's the format of this class? It's a group class held in an indoor classroom setting in groups of around 15 students. I already have some photography experience. Will this class be useful for me? Yes, a class could be a good refresher for you to consolidate all the bits and pieces of knowledge you've picked up over the years. You'll also find plenty of inspiration (in the form of some beautiful photos) to get back into photography if you haven't picked up a camera in a while. You’ll have an opportunity to ask a professional photographer any burning questions. It's a great way to spend an afternoon in the company of other beginners and amateurs. However, if you already have a good handle on things like shutter speed, aperture, ISO and manual mode, then Photo Walk and Adobe Lightroom Class are a better fit for you. What kind of camera do I need to attend this class? Bring whichever camera you currently own. No need to buy anything special or fancy for this class. We explain the differences between simple point & shoot cameras and DSLRs, so you'll be better informed about what kind of camera to buy, should you decide to upgrade your current one. What else should I bring to class? Anything you need to take notes on (pen, paper, iPad, laptop etc) and a snack or drink. Have more questions? Please shoot us an email for a quick response.

Eco-Friendly Foraging - Plants Walk / Food & DrinksLocal ForestSunday July 21 Want to learn about edible plants and help the environment in the process? Did you know what we are surrounded by wild edible plants and most of them are non-native to Los Angeles and actually invasive? Very often the same plants are crops in some other countries and yet, locally, the solution is to spray them with chemicals or waste this incredible food resource by uprooting and throwing it away. So sad when you realize that a recent study from the University of California Berkeley identified 52 edible weeds growing in abundance in the poorest neighborhoods of San Francisco. At least six of them were found to be more nutritious than kale, according to that study. Guess what, we'll find most of those nutritious plants during our walk. So let's look at an option that will help the environment, reduce the use of chemicals in nature and nourish us in the process. In this class, you'll learn about the countless local plants that you can use for food, many of them can be found in your backyard and are considered weed. . We’re taking mustards, lamb’s-quarter (wild spinach), chickweed, European nettles, sorrel, chervil, fennel, horehound (medicinal mint), figs, wild radish, nasturtium, wood sorrel and countless others. We will walk in the local forest (private property in the Angeles Forest), identify and talk about the culinary and medical uses of those plants. BRING A BAG! Collecting these plants and cooking them at home will be good for that forest. The walk is around 1 1/2 to 2 hours, very slow with lots of stops to talk about and collect the plants. We'll also talk about native plants, their uses and which ones you could plant at home. Wild food is gourmet food! After the class you will be served delicious snacks and drinks featuring the plants we saw during our walk. Long pants is a good idea - We have poison oak in the area. The walk will occur rain or shine (We love rain!) So check the weather and make sure you either have sun or rain protection and stay warm. Location: We meet in front of a place called Reptacular 8828 Gold Creek Rd, Sylmar, CA 91342Look for a red Jeep Wrangler near the entrance, we park on the side of the right road a bit further (don't enter the main gate, just drive a bit further)34°19'09.9"N 118°19'49.1"WTime: From 10AM to around 1PMREGISTER HERE

Wild Cheeses Workshop (Indoor)(No Dairy - Vegan - Limited to 15 people)Fermented Plants and Nuts-Based Hard Cheeses Saturday August 10 Nettles and Acorn cheese anyone? We're going nuts! Literally! Let's explore even deeper the culinary possibilities of our local terroir by making some fermented cheeses with local aromatic plants, nuts and unusual ingredients like ashes, homemade salt from sea water and much more!Don't worry though, you can make those cheeses too with ingredients found in most supermarkets (Whole Food, Ralph, etc...). Vegetarian and vegan nuts-based cheeses have come a long way in the last couple of years, the secret was really to use similar techniques to making dairy milks, including fermentation. I spent many months studying and experimenting with making delicious vegan cheeses by fermenting local nuts and plants, we're talking local walnuts, acorns, wild aromatic herbs, ashes and so on..., but also using regular store-bought ingredients. In this workshop, I will share my experience and techniques. The amount of creativity possible and flavors are truly limitless, some of these cheeses can be aged for weeks or even months. Depending on the recipe, some will taste quite similar to some aged dairy-based French cheeses (stinky a bit) or more mild with cheddar-like qualities. It's an unusual and truly unique workshop, not available anywhere else and well worth attending if you are into unique wild food or vegan/vegetarian cheeses. During this workshop, I will take you through the process of making the cheese from scratch. I'll explain which ingredients can be used, how to ferment the cheeses, different techniques for aging them and much more. Of course, we'll have some tasting too! We'll try a couple (maybe more) of different cheeses using wild or store-bought nuts. We can't have cheese without drinks so I'll bring fermented drinks as well (herbal meads, sodas, etc...)
