WANT TO LEARN PHOTOGHAPHY? NEW CLASS!

Starting November 1st, I will offer a new ONLINE Photography class where you and/or your child can learn the basics of shooting better photos with any device!

This two session course teaches shot composition and framing, lighting, how cameras work, how to properly hold your device, editing photos, and much more! The course also includes time to critique photos that you’ve taken so you can become a better photographer!
This course can be taken by adults as well as children, from 10 years old and up!

Currently this class is online only, but may expand to in person in the future. You will need one device to watch class on (laptop, etc), and a second device to take photos (phones, tablets, traditional cameras, etc.) This can be taken privately or in a group. You get to set the dates/times that work for your schedule!

LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY with Todd Tevlin
Two sessions (45 mins each session)
Ages: 10+
Price: $50 per person
Register HERE starting November 1st!

IN PERSON CLASSES TOO SOON, I GUESS…?

Unfortunately the pandemic is still going full steam ahead with the Delta variant, and because of that, parents are rightfully cautious. I thought we would have been mostly out of it by now, but the tremendous lack of registrations for my first two in person NOVEL NEIGHBOR classes proved too soon, so I am pulling the plug on them, sadly.

I will keep the other classes scheduled as is for now and will assess it one by one as they come nearer. In the meantime, please check out my live ONLINE CLASSES, so even if you’re local, you can still have your kid take my classes using zoom!

In Person Classes Are Back… (Maybe?)

The first IN PERSON CLASS at The Novel Neighbor bookstore is now ready for registrations! AUG.28 @1pm is my How To Draw Pokemon characters class, ages 6-11. All information and registration can be found HERE!

IMPORTANT!! On 7/27 the CDC announced everyone in the three major hotspots across the US (Missori/STL being one of them) has to wear masks indoors regardless if they’re vaccinated or not. My classes will be follow CDC guidelines at the time of class, but this also means things can get worse and class won’t be held in person at all by the time we’re suppose to have it.

In the event we can’t meet in person, I will offer a live online version of this class via Zoom, and issue refunds for those who do not want to do an online class if that happens.

Stay tuned for more updates on this!

AS THINGS WIND DOWN…

The past fourteen months have been exhausting. Yeah, that pandemic thing happened which caused me to shift my entire teaching business to be 100% online, and God blessed me with so much work during that time that there were several months in a row where I didn’t have a single day off and was fully booked for a month in advance several months in a row.

Just last week, for the first time in over a year, my total teaching hours for a week dipped down into single digits. Before then I was always near or at max capacity every week, with a few days that went over capacity. This doesn’t even include administration work time. In the end it may be time for an adult beverage, or three, to say the least.

Many things happened within that time span which I will discuss below, but first, the number one question you St. Louis people are wondering about is…
