capital-photo-logoWe have teamed up with Capital Photography Center to offer up-to-date photo training and events to the photo community in the Washigton, DC area.

David Luria, founder of the Washington Photo Safari and Karen Messick, Award winning professional photographer just to name a few.

Small class sizes with most limited to just 10 to 15 students, a few are as large as 25. This allows plenty of individual attention and makes learning an enjoyable experience. Classes are taught at MBS' locations in Gaithersburg and Frederick, in a variety of settings; hands-on in the field shooting, classroom style, in photography studios or at hi-tech digital/computer labs.
