What camera or equipment should I purchase?

Purchasing a new camera can be confusing. With so many options, it can be difficult to know what’s right for you. How do you sift through all of the online options when everything looks the same, or how do you avoid wasting money on something that you just don’t need? Indy Photo Coach is pleased to offer our IPC Photo Concierge Service to anyone looking to purchase a new camera, gear or editing software. We will listen to your needs and make recommendations based on your personal goals. Our aim is to make sure that you get the camera and gear that’s right for you personally and financially. We also have a handy reference page that you can use to determine what camera is right for you.

What classes should I take to meet my goals?

Indy Photo Coach has taught over 3,000 students how to get off Auto. Some of these students wish to take better pictures of their kids; some are looking for a hobby; and others want to pursue photography as a career path. After Fundamentals of Photography, where do you go to meet your personal photography goals? Talk with your instructor about your goals and he or she can help guide you in course selection to meet your needs. Also, after the first of the year, look for our online lesson guide, which is being designed to help you forge the path that’s best for you. Soon, we will also offer an Indy Photo Coach photography certification program that will reinforce this lesson tracking and provide you with incentives and rewards for meeting your goals.
