Henry’s is putting on a two-session course that challenges students to think outside of the class room and put all their knowledge to use in this travel/street photography based event. Three hours of dedicated shooting will be followed later with a 3-hour session to edit, review, and print photos. People can bring their own laptops, or Henry’s can provide computers with the software. As of Thursday August 17th there are only seven of the twelve seats remaining so, if you’re interested, act fast! The $150 fee covers both sessions.

Contact Henry’s 613-836-1016 or by email for more details and to enroll.
