PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES FOR BEGINNERS

I hold a Diploma in Art & Design, with Photography as one of my major subjects. I have been a professional photographer and the proud owner of Celia van Niekerk Photography for the past 14 years, but due to a shoulder problem, I had to hang up my camera in 2020. I have extensive photography experience in wedding photography, portrait photography, newborn and maternity photography, boudoir photography, family photography, and food photography…just to name a few genres.

I received numerous requests weekly for photography classes and workshops and I am happy to share my knowledge with you!

At present, I am offering Photography Classes for beginners. Our next workshop will be in August 2022!

Come join us for another JAMPACKED photography workshop!

The April Workshop Students achieved great success in their photography and even launched their own businesses! I am very proud of them all!!
