Improve Your Photo Game with the NEW Best Buy Photography Workshops! First One: July 28, 2018!


As a blogger, as a mom and as someone who gets a lot of satisfaction out of taking a picture that turns out great, I am very excited to announce that Best Buy is offering both paid Photography Work Shop Tours and Free In-Store Photography Workshops. The new Best Buy photography workshop tours will take place in Seattle, San Diego, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, New York City, and Minneapolis on July 28, 2018. There will also be tours October 20th, 2018 and January 19, 2019!



1.) NEW Best Buy Photography Workshop Tours - for Intermediates
- Available in Seattle, San Diego, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, New York City and Minneapolis on 7/28
- These are half-day excursions where you’ll get the chance to work with pro photographers & our Camera Experience Shop experts to conduct 4 individual photo shoots. 
- You’ll get to test & try an array of lenses & accessories to truly unleash what’s possible with photography, learn to think like a pro & walk away with some amazing photos. 
- At the end of the day in addition to lunch you’ll get a bag of camera goodies + if you share your photos on social media with the #BestBuyPhotoWorkshops you’ll be entered to win Best Buy gift cards or a dream photography package! 
- The events cost $50 – but you’ll easily make this up with the giveaways, lunch, transportation, and the priceless opportunity to work with pros!


 2.) Free In-Store Photography Workshops - for Beginners
- Do you want to improve your photo game but you’re not quite ready for the Tours? Start with a free in-store photography workshop! 
- Only 2 hours long, these will cover the photography basics & allow you 1:1 interaction with our Camera Experience Shop Experts to walk through your camera’s settings
**(please add to all posts) Once you’re done, take the next step into the upcoming Photography Workshop Tours on 10/20 and 1/19. You can sign-up to be notified when these go live for registration in the fall/winter. 


3.) All of this is possible thanks to Best Buy’s Camera Experience Shop. 
- It’s essentially like visiting a specialty camera store, right in the middle of your local Best Buy
-They have expert help in the form of our Camera Experience Shop Experts who go through intensive photography training & are all photo enthusiasts themselves
- There’s an expanded assortment of cameras, lenses & accessories that you won’t find in other locations. Plus you can get hands on with all the cameras & test and try them in the store


I'm excited to hear about these workshops and think we'll be registering for the one in NYC in January, 2019 if it falls on the dates we will be there. Yikes, next year is not too far off, is it? We've already got a trip planned for next year. If you live close to one of these cities, be sure to share the word!! This is something everyone who likes to take pictures will be able to enjoy!! I know I'm looking forward to hearing more about them and I bet they're going to be a huge success!! What a fun way to get to know your camera better, meet others who love to take pictures and improve your photography skills!!

I would love to go on one of these workshops if it was closer to me. I have a nice camera but have no clue what I am doing with it. I just aim, shoot, and pray for the best lol. That's my photography strategy.

I always wanted to try photography. I love taking photos and give meaning to them. This could be really perfect for me.

Pat Hatt said...

Would be fun to go to indeed. Bestbuy is all but dead up here though.

That's great that Best Buy is offering something like this!

I had no idea Best Buy was offering these workshops. What a great idea and a helpful tool for us bloggers. I'm always looking to improve my photography skills.

Janine Ella said...

If an opportunity arises, I would definitely love to join a photography workshop too! I want to improve my photo taking skills because we bloggers need it right? Haha

Excellent marketing effort by Best Buy. We do have Best Buy in Canada, but I don't think they're offering these work shops.

Melanie Walsh said...

I love that they're doing this! I'm always trying to improve my photography, and Best Buy sounds like the place to do it.

I would really benefit from a class like this. I do not know how to take great pictures.

Cia Black said...

THis is perfect timing for me as I'm trying to navigate the field of camera buying. This will make it so much easier.

This is an amazing opportunity that many people should take advantage of. I love that it is teaching people an actual skill that they can use and market to others.

One (of the many) thing I miss from Atlanta?
BEST BUY!

Alyssa said...

This is awesome! I love Best Buy and I love taking pics on my own but I could definitely use a workshop as well!

Elizabeth O said...

These workshops sound great. I feel, especially so as bloggers, that everyone wants to up their photography game at some point and these workshops are perfect for that.

Megan said...

Wow! I didn't know they did this, what a great way to get beginners into the basics of photography :)

Trang Phạm Lê Khánh said...

I will definitely take up photography someday. This would help me a lot. Thanks for sharing

I need a good photography for my son's photoshoot and this sounds like a great service. Will check this out.

I saw these classes on another bloggers page as well. I think it's a great idea. For years a local camera shop called Rockbrook Camera has had classes to get to know your camera. I always wanted to take one.

This sounds like a great workshop.
