Clickin Moms was the first place that I turned to to learn photography. The community is supportive, helpful, and really pushes you to grow and learn. They have photography classes and break-out session for everyone from the beginner to the advanced photographer. Learn composition, how to shoot in manual mode, edit your photos beautifully, find your voice as an artist and so much more!

These classes are geared toward moms, but anyone age 10+ could take them.
