Learn How to Take Amazing Photographs at These Local Schools

Did you know that photography is one of the world’s largest growing hobbies?

It became recognized as an art form in the 1800s, and today, local recreational arts schools help students capture stunning images.

Those near our Uptown Dallas apartments include:

Dallas Center for Photography 

The Dallas Center for Photography is a nonprofit organization that offers everything from beginning photography to image processing. Founder Peter Paulides opened the center as he wanted a place where people could learn in a fun, laid-back setting. His professional career spans decades and includes being published in national magazines. Paul’s basic classes demystify the technical aspects of digital photography while keeping students interested in the next step.

There are dozens of classes, including the DSLR Evening Series. Students learn their camera’s basic functions and the creative effects of shutter speeds. 

SMU Personal Enrichment 

SMU Personal Enrichment is the city’s go-to source for students with the objective of lifelong learning. It has served the Dallas community since 1953, and welcomes those between the ages of 12 and 100. 

The Beginning Digital Photography class is offered throughout the year. Led by a skilled instructor, it covers aperture and shutter priorities during lectures, hands-on exercises, and constructive criticism.

Dwight Vasel Photography 

With fourteen Emmy Awards, it’s no wonder that Dwight Vasel is one of the most respected photographers in the Metroplex. His creativity is unmatched, and he works on projects for the Fort Worth Symphony and American Heart Association among other organizations. Dwight has a passion for teaching, and he encourages students to use their imagination.

The private classes are the best way to enjoy one-on-one attention. Dwight will answer all of your questions and help improve your shooting technique.

Along with these photography classes, residents of our Victory Park Apartments can also enjoy other activities such as hiking and indoor rock climbing. To schedule a tour of our community, please contact us. We would love for you to see firsthand all we have to offer.
