On the one hand, you can work with him in one of his group photography classes or photography courses in Washington, DC.

However, you choose to work with Sam, you’ll be working with a teacher who’s a seasoned photographer and has a knack for transferring what he knows quickly to the students he works with.

 

Concerns About Safety

A word from Sam.

COVID19 has dramatically changed the way our society functions.

And in response, my primary concern is our health and safety. 

The way I held in-person group classes in the past does not appear to be a safe way to conduct photography classes now. 

Below you’ll find how I’ve changed the way I teach photography.

And when it comes to online instruction, I can wholeheartedly say that learning online is just as effective as in-person group instruction, AND it’s safe and convenient.

Some Words From Sam About His Photography Classes And Photography Courses

Should You Study And Practice Photography With Me?

While that’s an excellent question to ask, I don’t know. In addition, it’s a question that we both need to answer. But we can’t answer that question without some preliminary work.
Because we probably don’t even know each other, it’s probably a good idea to get to know a bit about each other before we start workin’ together.
In other words, you want to know if what I do can help you, and I want to make sure that I can help you.
For this purpose, read on, and let’s see if we’re a good fit.
Below you’ll find some of my thoughts about photography instruction and suggestions on ways you can contact me so we can start working together.

Some Thoughts About Photography Teachers

I’ve taken several photography classes and courses during my studies and practice as a photographer.
And based on my experience working with “teachers” who’ve “taught” me photography, my mileage, so to speak, has varied.
In other words, I seemed to learn more when working with some teachers when compared to others. I wouldn’t label teachers as “good” or “bad.”
Each teacher has their own way as a photographer and their own way as a teacher.
To put a finer point on it, I seem to resonate with some teachers and some I don’t.
Put another way, I either connect with a teacher, or I don’t connect with a teacher.
And to clarify, I’m not saying that I didn’t learn ANYTHING from the teachers I didn’t connect with.
Because there was something to be learned in ALL the classes that I took.
But some teachers had a profound influence on my studies and practice. And that has affected who I am when I’m a photographer.
And who I am when being a photography teacher.

Teachers That Provide Structure And Guidance During Photography Classes And Photography Courses

The teachers that I resonate with don’t seem to be teachers. They seem to act more as guides during their photography classes and courses, which get me to think about how I study and practice photography. They don’t tell me what to do or how to do something. The teachers talk, I listen. I make some notes and ask some questions. Then they suggest ways to put into practice what they’ve talked about. They teach in such a way that allows me to find my own path as a photographer, and in finding my own way as a photographer, I become the best photographer that I can be.
As a result of my experience with photography teachers, I teach like the teachers I resonate with.

Photography Classes And Photography Courses – What’s The Difference?

In brief, from my perspective, a photography teacher’s perspective, a class is a one-meeting event. While a course is a series of lessons.

What REALLY Matters When It Comes To Picking Photography Classes And Photography Courses?

Photography Schools

When I began studying photography, I went to schools that taught photography as part of their curriculum. I started at a local community college, and then, as my studies got more specific and intensive, I went to schools that taught “visual arts.”
I soon learned that “schools” were just structures. In other words, schools are places to go to learn from teachers. While schools may have reputations, the thing that drives that reputation is the teachers who teach.

Photography Teachers

The teacher is more important than the school they teach in. When I signed up for classes, I didn’t know who would lead the class. And since there seemed to be no opportunity to speak with the teacher before taking the course. In other words, it was a crap-shoot in terms of whether I would connect with the teacher or not. This is why it’s essential to talk with a teacher before taking a class. While many teachers may teach the same subject, HOW they teach is what’ll be working for ya or not.
So, back to the question at hand. Should you study and practice photography with me? The answer I gave at the beginning remains the same. Maybe ya should, and perhaps ya shouldn’t.
But let’s find out.

Can I Work With You As A Photography Teacher During One of My Photography Classes And Photography Courses?

Since I ain’t a “photography school” you can talk with me, “the teacher” directly. I can, of course, talk with you about the photography classes and photography courses I offer. But more importantly, I wanna talk with you about what you’d like to get out of learnin’ about photography.
We’ll have a good talk about what you’re doin’ as a photographer now and why you’d like to take a class. I wanna know what you’re doin’, why you’re doin’ it, and what you’re doin’ it with (your camera and other equipment).
In our conversation, we’ll discover whether you should take a class with me or not. Because, If we resonate/connect, there’s a good chance that we should be working together. And if ya decide to work with me, I’ll do my best to “teach,” and all I expect from you is that you’ll do your best to “learn.”
So, if that sounds good to you, that’s GREAT!!!
So that we can get goin’, here’s my contact information. Invariably, a phone call is preferred.
Because all we gotta do now is is have a conversation to determine which of the photography classes and photography courses that I offer will serve you best.
And thanks for taking the time to read this, and thank you for your consideration.

To help determine your best course of photography instruction, please fill out the following evaluation forms.

 Evaluation Forms

Please fill out the forms entirely and be sure to include your phone number when filling out
the Photography Instruction Strategy Questionnaire.
Photography Instruction Strategy Questionnaire and Basic Photography and Camera Operation Test

Got Questions?

I prefer phone calls because I enjoy talkin’ about photography, and I enjoy getting to know the photographers I’ll be workin’ with. But, of course, do whatever you’d prefer.

Other Important Information

Frequently asked questions, directions to the classes, pricing, etc.

8 thoughts on “Photography Classes And Photography Courses – Study And Practice Photography With Sam D’Amico”

  1. I’ve taken some private lessons with Sam. While I had a basic understanding, as it turned out very basic, understanding of the elements of photography, Sam was able to build upon my understanding of photography and point out where my understanding was incorrect or incomplete. He was able to do all of this in a friendly, casual way without it being in a condescending manner. Highly recommended for the beginning or moderately experienced photographer.

  2. Asking about classes and what is needed to register and is job placment provided and when are the classes arranged and where is D.C. THNKS and i love taking photos of friends and family and one day maybe i can become a NFL cameraman you know
