How to get an education in basic photography for cheap in Seattle (And learn about the city's history at the same time)

So just recently , like in the last few weeks, I have started working with a tour company in the Pike Place Market that gives photography tours. That's right we teach you how to take better pictures and tell you a bit about the market and some of the surrounding areas as well. It's called Shutter Tours and its the brain child of a guy named Terry Divyak. 

Terry was in NYC and tried to find a tour that catered specifically to photography geeks and amateur photo auteurs. He never found one. Instead, he came home to Seattle and developed one right here. He has been running for the last few years and things are going great. The tours are fairly inexpensive and you get three hours with a professional photographer who will talk about the basic things that make any photo great while at the same time watching what you do and offering suggestions and encouragement as you get better. Its a blast to lead and really fun to be a tourist!

If you have the time take a tour! I may even be your instructor...

Chandler was my instructor/tour guide when I took my first training tour. He made it fun and informative.
