small-group online photography classes

Live & Interactive

Our live, online photography classes take place weekly in small groups of up to 8 students. In these interactive classes, students and teachers meet in realtime, seeing and speaking with each other through video conferencing. Students participate live from around the world.

Classes are focused on a variety of subjects: storytelling, long-term projects, documentary and street photography, environmental portraits, composition, feedback groups, multimedia, and Lightroom. Join our email list to hear about new classes as they are added!

Over the past year I have learned that participating with other image makers is an essential part of my photography practice. I particularly like the way Strudelmedia classes combine valuable skills with individual attention.

This class was spectacular. Liz is spectacular. She is such an organized and patient teacher. I’m so excited to practice and experiment with the techniques she introduced us to.

I would like to thank you for a great course! It’s really going to help me move my way forward, although I'm not ready yet to be able to publish a whole book. What made this great was the amount of effort, time and thought you put into it, especially given the short duration. I have enjoyed and learnt a lot from the two courses I have taken with you and I will keep my eye open on Studelmedia for other courses you may be giving.
