Photography Classes

I offer a variety of classes in the classroom at River Rock Outfitter, 915 Sophia Street, Fredericksburg, VA. For more information or to register for any of the classes listed below, please click on the name of the class. Unless otherwise noted all classroom classes are limited to six students.

I have decided to take the summer off from teaching in the classroom. when I decide on what workshops to teach I will post them here. River Rock Outfitter now has a commercial use licence for Shenandoah National Park so look for classes and workshops in the park this fall.



  1. Vincent,

    Will you be offering any night or weekend “Intro to DSLR Photography” classes this spring or summer? I work near DC all day and right now it only show Wednesday classes that are daytime.

    Thank you,

  2. Hi! I just tried to sign up for your Tues. evening class through parks and rec, but it is full. Are you offering any other classes this summer? Thanks

  3. Hi there,
    I love photography. I’m not sure if I’m any good or not. I love taking pictures of my kids! I feel the best place to start is by taking a class. Unfortunately I live in a small town that offers no classes. Fredericksburg is the best place for me to go. I live an hour away. I need to buy a camera to start. Been looking at the Nikon 3100 and the similar Canon. Any suggestions? I love my Canon Powershots but need more. Are the only classes you offer in the evening? Those are tough for me to manage as I have children at home in the evening. But, I may have to make it work. Looking forward to hearing from you!!

    1. Hi Allison,

      The best advice I can give on choosing a camera is to go and hold both cameras that you are interested in. See how they feel in your hands and if you like where the controls are. The classes through Fredericksburg Parks & Rec are offered mostly in the evenings but there are some that are offered in the daytime. I’d like to offer classes on the weekend but the community center is closed so weekend class are not possible until I find a place to hold classes.

      I hope this helps!


  4. Hello,
    I am a beginner with my Nikon 3100 and am interested in classes in the Fredericksburg area. What are the upcoming dates of evening photography classes for a beginner eager to learn!?

    1. Hi Sarah,

      I have a list of the upcoming classes offered through Ferdericksburg Parks and Recreation post here. I am also putting together a list of classes that I will be teaching at other locations. I hope to have some of those posted soon.

      All the best, Vincent

    1. For now DPA does not really have a class for flash photography in the DC area. I recommend taking a class that most fits your needs without flash. I know that’s not much help but that’s all I can suggest. I can work with you on using a flash if you would like.

  5. Hi Vincent, I am finally finding my way around all these photography sites. Thanks for all the photo tips so far, and I hope to get to one of your DPA classes soon!

  6. Vince, you are an awesome photographer, I would rate you up there with the NatGeo photographers, and in my book they cannot be touched.
