My Digital Photography Life!
Digital Photography Expert Instructor Bert Marley became a Freelance photographer in the late 80’s when he started ImageArt. Bert has worked as a wedding photographer and travel photographer with visits to Scotland, England, France, Germany, Austria, and the Greek Islands, as well as many locations in the US. He has worked with all sizes of cameras from 35mm to a 4” x 5” large format studio camera and with all kinds of flash and “hot lights.” His most recent self-assignment was to photograph the “Great American Eclipse” in Idaho to capture Solar Corona images.

Instructor Bert Marely
When you take any one of my classes, I will introduce you to the wonders of photographing amazing vistas and subjects around the world.
Three Digital Photography Classes Available for all Learning Levels.
Those who are either brand new to digital photography or feel they need assistance beyond the basic “Point and Shoot” will gain valuable knowledge from this class. We will explore the type of photography you want to do and the camera needed for that type of photography. In addition, we will look at the reasons behind different choices of cameras and the economic driving factors. After deciding the best camera for you, we will focus on the initial setup, whether the camera is new or one you have used for a while, but are intimidated by all the different “menu” choices.
This class teaches how to use your camera to capture the images you desire. Fixed lens bridge cameras, interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras, and digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras will be compared and the uses of each explored. What you want as a final product of your images will dictate what type equipment you use. Because this class focuses on the aesthetics and craftsmanship of digital cameras and accessories, knowledge beyond basic camera functions is required. We will also explore the addition and/or subtraction of light and how it will affect your images. “Hot Lights” versus flash versus “natural light” will be featured along with filters and their uses.
This class is for those who have mastered their 35mm photography and would like to learn what can be accomplished with the next step in photographic formats – Medium and/or Large Format photography. We will explore the why of the larger format cameras and how that mindset can be used in other aspects of the photographic process. Because this is an exploratory class, possession or access to larger equipment is not needed; however, in-depth photographic knowledge is necessary.
