About the School

A school of photography in Dallas adjacent to the 500X Gallery, for those who would like to learn and explore the world through the photographic medium. We offer beginner to advanced workshops with a very personal touch: small groups in an intimate setting where learning and personal artistic growth truly takes place. We meet at the SA Studio in Deep Ellum, close to downtown Dallas.

> History of Photography
> Intro to Digital Capture
> Digital Workflow and Editing
> Advanced Digital Imaging
> Lightroom and Photoshop
> Studio Lighting
> Portrait photography
> Portfolio development
> Landscapes and Urbanscapes
> Destination workshops

Our Vision

Photography is primarily a means of self-discovery, a tool to interact with the world and explore. Each person has a unique view of the universe. Through photography students unlock this individuality. As they learn the craft, reflecting on the images and their meaning, they realize their potential and artistic vision.

We would like to create a community of like minded photo-enthusiasts who will enjoy their personal growth as they develop their skills and who will benefit from the creative atmosphere around them.
