"Great class! Lucy did a great job explaining the concepts of 

photography as well as making it fun!" ~ Jennifer

 

Clic, c'est chic! photography courses in your community!

The Clic, c'est chic! concept is to teach photography to women who want to learn new or improve photography skills, all while having fun with other women, in a comfortable, enriching, and relaxing environment.

When I took my first photography class, it was in a dismal classroom in the basement of a local college. Although I loved what I was learning, the environment wasn't great - bad lighting, uncomfortable seating and a group of people who had such varying interests in photography that it was difficult to cover one topic in depth.

When I decided I wanted to teach, I envisioned a more zen environment, sipping my Starbucks, talking about photography, and generally having an uplifting and enriching time! I want the entire experience, from the registration process, to the snacks, and all the way through course content to be something that gives us as women a well deserved break to fill our own cups and feed our souls. I'm not only hoping to find students, but a network of like-minded individuals, and maybe even friends! Out in the community, but also building a community!

I'm excited to bring this concept to life, and I hope you will join me in exploring some wonderful photographic topics!

 

"Fun workshop! Very informative. I learned a lot and have some

new ideas to bring home. Thank you so much!" ~ Tetiana
