At Understand Photography, our motto is "We Simplify the Technical". Our blog posts, as well as all our training programs and materials, are designed with that in mind. Meet Peggy Farren, the founder of Understand Photography, as she explains how to get the most of this website.
Cuba, Everglades, Old Naples Photo Tour, Women Only trips and more. Peggy Farren and Joe Fitzpatrick will give a very brief overview of what makes our excursions so special.
We offer simplified, step by step photography training in different formats.
We highly recommend everyone begins with our Four Weeks to Proficiency in Photography course. This course is a live, interactive online class with lots of support! and includes practice assignments.
We also offer training through hands-on, in person workshops and private lessons.
Join us for a short two hour tour, a day trip or spend days with us!
We limit attendance to five or six photographers per tour so that everyone can get individual attention.
We plan our tours so that every level of photographer will learn, have lots of fun and leave with amazing images!
We specialize in short Florida trips (we live here after all!) and Women-only trips.
Here are our products and services, as well as trusted affiliates, partners and friends' products.
Do you need your camera cleaned or repaired? Would you like a custom photo bag created just for you?
Our classes and trips can be purchased here as well!
