Answers to Questions You Might Have
What is a Drop-In?
A Drop-in is pretty much what it sounds like. You just show up to a class and either pay at the door, or you can use this page to pay via PayPal.
Where do I Drop-In?
We typically meet at my studio (18603 Sandy Rd., in Castro Valley), and then carpool to the location. Some people prefer to just show up at the location. Because of the nature of outdoor photography (pun intended), times and locations are subject to change. As such, I send out an email with the time and location prior to each event.
If I pay via PayPal, how will you know that I paid when I show up?
Once your payment goes through, PayPal sends me a notification that contains both your name and email address. I will contact you with location details prior to the event.
What happens if I pay for a Drop-In but can't make it?
Paying for a Drop-In does not bind you to any particular class or date. Show up when you are willing and able. I will credit you for a future class.
What happens if I pay for a Monthly class and can't make it?
A monthly class schedule includes 4 walks/classes and a Shoot The Moon workshop. Missed classes can be made up on another day or used as credit for future classes.
What's the advantage of paying monthly when the price is the same for Drop-Ins?
A monthly schedule gives you "student" status and includes you in my on-going student displays around local art shows as well as at Knudsen's Ice Creamery and the Hayward Sun Gallery. Student work is on display and offered for sale. Students may also attend the monthly Shoot The Moon workshops for free.
What happens if there are 5 Fridays, Saturdays or Mondays in a month?
We take a day off... or grab a classmate and go shooting on our own. I will let you know which dates there will not be a class prior to that month.
What if I have a question not answered here?
