Workshop Calendar

Sylvia Galbraith is a popular photography instructor who teaches classes for beginner to advanced students in a number of locations in Fergus, Guelph and Kitchener.  She is an instructor for the Commercial Photography Certificate program at Conestoga College in Kitchener, where she teaches the Fundamentals of Photography, Advanced Photography and a mentorship program, Photography Field Experience.  Her general interest workshops are fun and instructive, and cover a range of topics.

Many of these classes are held at 198 St. David St. in downtown Fergus.  This large venue has the space for practical work during class time.  In addition to regular programming, private or semi-private lessons can be scheduled, and she offers programs for youth, either after school or on weekends.

Watch for Sylvia's  Sunday Lecture Series, held monthly at 198 St. David St. N. in Fergus.  These informal gatherings run from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, and include guest speakers, photo critiques, field trips, hands-on demonstrations and more.  Groups or camera clubs who would like to schedule a specific lecture or workshop are invited to contact Sylvia.  These can be held at her Fergus location, or at your own venue.

Conestoga College Commercial Photography Program

If you've been considering working towards an Ontario College Certificate in Photography, you might consider the program offered at Conestoga College in Kitchener,  Doon Campus.  Sylvia teaches both PHOT1010 The Fundamentals of Photography, and PHOT1020 Advanced Photography, which are the first two courses of nine overall.  Whether you are interested in the taking entire program to earn an Ontario College Certificate in Photography, or simply want to develop professional photography skills through taking the first few courses, this series is much more intensive that Sylvia's General Interest workshops.  Skills learned in this program are especially valuable for those working in photography, graphic design, web design, sales, and many other professions that require photography skills.  Each course runs for 10 weeks, and is held on one night per week.  They follow the regular semester system, with classes beginning in fall, winter and spring.

Private Photography Lessons - For Adults, Teens & Youth

B&W PhotographyLocation: 198 St. David St., Fergus

Don't have time for a scheduled class?  Have you bought a new camera and are looking for some tips to get you started?  Are you switching from a  film based camera to digital? Do you need help uploading and editing files, or are  you interested in learning how to properly print your photographs? All of these are great reasons to book private lessons - you can take one, or dozens, depending on your preferences.

Lessons are available during the week, or on weekends, and are for all ages.  If you have teens or youth who want to learn photography, I offer lessons geared specifically to their age group, with fun projects mixed in with more practical instruction.  Lessons are available for after school or holiday breaks and PA days.

Cost:  $65 + HST per 1.5 hour lesson

Private Photoshop Lessons - Adults or Teens

photoshop_thLocation: 198 St. David St., Fergus

Photoshop is considered the standard in photographic editing, and allows a photographer to enhance or correct photographs, or create entirely new images as desired.  Often people need a bit of help getting started, and private lessons are a perfect option to allow you to customize your learning opportunities.

I offer a number of different options, from using the simpler Photoshop Elements programs that may include a few lessons, to teaching a full college level Digital Imaging course that spans 8 or more lessons.  Private lessons can be purchased in single time blocks of 1.5 hours, or any number, depending on how you progress.

Lessons are available during the week, or on weekends, and are for all ages.  If you have teens or youth who want to learn Photoshop, I offer lessons geared specifically to their age group, with fun projects mixed in with more practical instruction.  Lessons are available for after school or holiday breaks and PA days.

I can provide a laptop, Mac or PC, or you are welcome to bring your own.

Cost:  $65 + HST per 1.5 hour lesson
