What People are Saying

"4 Weeks to Proficiency achieves what it claims! The effective combination of the two hour weekly webinars coupled with daily 30 minute assignments and class facebook page, ensures that the principles taught in each class are embedded in your photography habits." ~ JILL

"I just finished this class with Peggy today, and I am THRILLED with what I have learned. I’ve had a nice camera for 5 years and absolutely no idea how to use it. I would turn all the automatic dials and take 100 pictures hoping to get one good one . . . really." ~ JULIE

“One of the best explanations I have had on exposure, aperture, and ISO. It has just always been hard to understand for me. She did a good job of clearing it up.” ~ BARBARA SPIELBERG KELTNER 

What Will You Learn?

In this webinar, Peggy Farren, creator of The Four Weeks to Proficiency in Photography Virtual Bootcamp, will be revealing the most important technical aspects of photography that every photographer needs to know. 

Do you REALLY understand exposure and how to shoot in the manual setting? If you are not comfortable shooting in the manual setting, you probably need to brush up on understanding exposure. Once you have a strong foundation in exposure, everything else comes much easier! 

You'll get a chance to see Peggy's simplified teaching style in this video. She goes slowly and speaks to the nontechnical photographer. 

  • How to win at photography competitions - As a frequent judge, Peggy will reveal the most common disqualification reasons and how you can overcome them. 
  • Does using flash intimidate you? It's not as tough as you think! In this webinar, Peggy will show you simple ways to use on and off camera flash effectively. 
  • Are you about to take an exotic trip and want to be sure you come home with awe-inspiring pictures? 
  • Are your technical insecurities keeping you from earning a good living in photography? 
  • Avoid overwhelm by learning what is vital to know to produce great images consistently. 
  • .... and much, much more! 

We'll help you put together a clear plan of action to get a solid photography education.
