The magic of memories is not just in experiencing them but also in capturing them beautifully. While in the shadow of Camelback Mountain, learn how to work with light and shadow along with how to compose a shot. Photographer and blogger extraordinaire Joanie Simon will guide you through the essentials of photography with practical tips for shooting and editing that anyone can use, whether you’re shooting with a camera or a phone.

After shooting some portrait and architectural images inside the resort, you’ll learn how to take stunning food and drink images inside Hearth ’61 for that perfect Instagram post.
