The First Class of the OCC Camera Academy: “Know Your Camera” by Matt Klinger  (In-Person Meeting)

This will be an in-person meeting, held before the regular OCC meeting.

July 8th will be the first in the series of four OCC Camera Academy “boot camps” offered this year, taught by highly experienced, award-winning photographers.

Join us in learning more, or refreshing your knowledge, about your camera and photography.

Matt Klinger will return to present the first class of the series this year. He will cover many basic features and settings for most DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras, a few more advanced features, and some additional equipment/gear that most new photographers will probably find useful. We have had wonderful feedback on Matt’s presentations, from beginner photographers as well as from more advanced photographers!

Instructor Bio:

Matt Klinger has been a member of the Orlando Camera Club for over a decade, serving as both the Competition Director and President of the club. He enjoys a wide variety of photography genres but especially likes photographing people and landscapes. Matt resides in Winter Garden with his wife Julie and currently makes his living photographing corporate events, weddings, and headshots. He is also an FAA-certified Drone Pilot and holds a current Florida Real Estate License. Matt and his wife enjoy traveling and have visited many places across the U.S. as well as the Caribbean, Mexico, and Europe.

Pre-registration is NOT required. All paid members of OCC can attend these classes for free. Non-members can attend for just $20 per class; or $55 for all four classes which would also include a full year’s membership (starting the date you join) in the Orlando Camera Club!

These meetings will be held in person from 5:00-6:00 pm at the Marks Street Senior Center, before the regular Orlando Camera Club meetings.
