Simonsen starts video, photography school

Steve Simonsen’s New St. John School of Film and Photography is offering an ambitious curriculum of 18 classes in classroom space at the Gifft Hill School

While the famous island photographer teaches some of the classes, the school not a one man show.  Classes on Web design, Photoshop, and Printing Techniques are being taught by others on island, indicating that just because you’re in the middle of the ocean, you don’t have to be out of touch.

The classes are from 2 to 4 hours and cost $45.  Most are one session. However, a course on video editing using Final Cut Pro 5 meets weekly.  Other classes cover how to use the advanced features of a digital SLR camera and working with iPhoto to organize, print and mail pictures.

Many of the classes are Mac-oriented.  However, classes such as the one on digital SLR, travel photography, and even GarageBand sound editing would have applicability and useful information for Windows users.  You can learn more about the School’s offerings here .
