Today, we are super excited to announce the third annual Introduction to Portrait Photography class for Photography for a Cause! autumn and Chris from the La Brisa team are sharing all of their portrait photography knowledge with you! Last year was a huge success and we raised over $1,000 for! With your help, we are hoping to exceed that amount this year!

100% of profits from this class will be donated to Sunflower CASA, an organization based in Manhattan, KS! Here is a little bit of information about this incredible organization:
Every year in our community, more than 100 children enter the court system as victims of abuse and neglect. These children are without a voice and often without hope. Court-Appointed Special Advocate volunteers give their time to speak for these children, to champion without compromise what is in their best interest. And because CASAs are there, these children are half as likely to languish in foster care and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home where they can thrive. Visit for more information on how you can make a difference for a child waiting for your voice.

Here is what previous attendees have said about the class…
“Everything was presented with such ease. The intimidation was completely taken away. This completely opens the door to everything out there. I would recommend it to anyone that needs to learn more about their camera or needs confidence in their shooting.”

“I was thinking you could go city to city and just do these all over. It was amazing. I have been to many workshops at camera stores, workshops with university athletic photographers, and many shoot-arounds but none of them broke the basics down like this workshop. I have already told so many people about it.”

“I would love to enroll again and learn more…I left wanting to spend more time getting to know even more details! The flow of the course as great, discussion and practice were the most meaningful for me personally.”

“I gained valuable information from the workshop and I feel that others in the class did too. If a friend is wanting to know more about how to take better pictures, etc., I would definitely recommend this class.”
