What you'll do

Refresh your photo skills with a pro photographer

We will meet at the fountain in Orange Plaza at The Circle of Orange, site of the famous annual Chapman University Undie Run, and do a brief review of how our cameras work and answer photography "how-to" questions.

We'll begin our photo walk through Old Towne, where several popular movies were filmed. Historic buildings and sites will be the background for our lively and interactive experience.

Along the way, you will learn tips and tricks for creating amazing images with your camera, learn to understand light, experiment with macro, motion, architecture, and people photography.

I will photograph you during this experience so you will have lasting memories of your time in the O.C.

I am a passionate traveler, teacher, and tour guide and seek places and experiences off the beaten path! I wrote a photo guide book, have two more in the works and I've been teaching novice and amateur photographers in the US and abroad for 30 years. I love sharing my expertise because good photography is more than just a shot in the dark!

If you’re looking to get a deeper understanding of photography in a cool location, this is a good option. This class will give you practical, hands on instruction that a beginner or intermediate photographer will find very useful. We covered camera settings, equipment, panning, posing, macro photography and lots more. Julie teaches at the local college, but this takes it out of the classroom into the practical. The Orange circle is a great backdrop for the experience but it was more about the photography than the location. Overall I would recommend this if you are looking to learn photography or take your knowledge to the next level.

This was a great experience! Julie was great and really connected with us by asking what we wanted to get out of this experience. She is extremely knowledgeable and loves what she does.

Fun way to spend a Saturday morning. Being an amateur photographer, it was wonderful to have an experienced instructor guiding us. She went over panning, macro, structural, long-exposure and high speed shooting. I live in Orange so it was nice getting to know my city. Great time!

Julie was just delightful, answered all of our questions and gave us tons of information not only about photography and tips to taking good pics, but also info about the area, places to see and places that are good to photograph. I would go on any other excursions she would offer.

I loved every minute of this photo Walk experience. It was hands on and full of wonderful information. It was for 8:30 but I wished it was earlier. Julie was so personable and easy to understand. She makes the photo shoot interesting and exciting and all the while I am learning. She takes her time to explain a problem with my photos and asked questions that made me think of what I needed to do to correct it. I loved that. She is an excellent teacher with a vast knowledge of photography and I was lucky to have been on this walk. I had so much fun and I learned a lot. I didn’t want it to end.
