Education Membership

How would you like two classes per month included in your membership?
Building on our core strengths of community and education, our Education Membership includes TWO monthly programs! Get all the benefits of our existing memberships, including discounts on all our classes, discounts on equipment rentals, discounts on tutoring, use of our complimentary lending library, and of course access to our amazing monthly image review nights (SOPHA Salon).

But the big perk: each month SOPHA will offer two programs at no additional cost for Education Members! Each interactive two-hour program will be packed with photographic insights and knowledge and taught by subject matter experts. The subjects of these programs will run the full range of the photographic experience from the Fundamentals to Photoshop & Lightroom, Business & Marketing to Fine Art & Creativity, Adventure & Travel to Sports & Outdoor Photojournalism & Landscapes.

Let’s whet your appetite!  Here are the next classes in the Education Membership Series:

Each of these programs is included in the cost of the Education Membership – a fantastic value!
Education Membership is about so much more than these two free classes every month!  With an Education Membership to SOPHA you get a big discount on all SOPHA classes, our specialized one-on-one tutoring, our best-in-class equipment rentals, and much more!  Education Members also get access to our exclusive Members-Only facebook group.  Oh, and did we mention Members get free access to our lending library?

Our Schedule for 2017!
These Education Membership Programs are scheduled on a rotating schedule to best accommodate as many members as possible, with the planned dates for 2017 posted below. Each month, one program will be held on a week night, and the other on a weekend day. Education Membership Programs will be open to non-members for a fee, and Studio Members can join us for a fee as well (our 20% Membership discount applies of course!)
