  • Weekly Assignments 
  • Weekly Quizzes 
  • Private Google Classroom for Videos, Assignments & Quizzes 
  • At the end of this course, your student will be fully versed in manual photography (no auto functions). It does take practice to get the technology down and know-how of where the buttons are on your camera




What Kind of Camera is Required?

The camera needs to be able to go to a fully manual function. Most of them have a dial that has a big "M" on it.  

If you do not own a camera but are interested in purchasing a new or used one for this course I have made some recommendations HERE with links to purchase. If you have additional questions, please call/text or just shoot me an email at [email protected] .

Why Should My Student Take This Course?

Photography can be a lifelong hobby or passion. I fell in love with photography at age 13, with nobody to teach me. I began reading and figuring it out for myself here and there. Finally, at age 15 I found a course at a community college and that started me on a path to my future. By 15 years old I was doing photography as a career and you can too! Even if you would like to just be able to take great photos of your own life, I don't think you will ever regret learning how to use your camera well to document your life.  

In addition to photography being a great hobby and possible income generator, it is a wonderful elective for students who school at home. If you are a homeschool family, this course can be counted as a 1/2 credit in fine art or an elective course!

Instructor Holly Peevyhouse

Photography Teacher for over 20 years!

Hello, I am Holly Peevyhouse, a professional photographer of 25 years, have been instructing photography for over 20 years in community education courses, one-on-one photography mentoring, and private classes. My passion is to help others learn to master their cameras and confidently create images that reflect the true nature of the moment. I pride myself on teaching others to photograph well on the front end rather than the need to spend tons of time editing after the shot has already happened. I fell in love with photography at the age of 13, and have a heart for paying it forward in teaching young people how to learn this art and carry on their stories to the next generation!

About the Course!


"Holly explains it in a way that is organized & easy to understand. Her patience in working with each student was so helpful!"

- Carissa Miller, owner CC Miller Photography

"My daughter enjoyed Holly's Photography course. We tried learning from a photography book, but it was hard without having someone available to explain things, ask questions, etc. She is learning so much more being taught by a professional and it's helpful to me by having someone else teach one of her classes. " — Lori Allcorn - Mother of Photography Student

"Holly taught photography to both of my daughters and my son when they were in high school. They learned so much! My daughters continue to use their photography often!" - Rachel McLean
