Maggie Holmes Photo Connections Class - Win a Seat!

Big Picture Classes, the leader in memory-keeping classes, and Maggie Holmes, an absolutely amazingly talented scrapbooker, designer and photographer are teaming up to bring you Photo Connections: Capturing the True Essence of People and Relationships Through Photographs.

From the BPC website:

Would you like to say goodbye to those awkward, posed photographs of friends and family members, where they're smiling dutifully at the camera but not authentically relating to each other—or to you as the photographer?
Introducing Photo Connections! In this 4-week guided workshop, Maggie Holmes will teach you to:
  • Take group shots that evoke the essence of the relationship between the subjects (for example: deep devotion, playful camaraderie, the bloom of new love)
  • Take portraits that have a strong sense of affinity between the photo subject and those who view the photo later
  • Use the rules of composition to enhance the visual connections
  • Connect to your most important stories and relationships through your photography, with tips for telling those stories on scrapbook pages

Photo Connections includes:
  • Colorful instructional, inspirational handouts with plenty of gorgeous photo examples
  • Bonus handouts with extra tips and instruction
  • Slideshows from Maggie 
  • Welcome notes from Maggie in the classroom
  • Reminder emails when the classroom is open and then updated with new materials
  • Private posting gallery to share your work and view the work of your classmates 
  • Message board to share your thoughts with your classmates
  • One live chat with Maggie


Bonus projects from five amazing scrapbookers! During week four, contributors Stephanie Bryan, Kelly Purkey, Gillian Nelson, Allison Waken, and Maggie Massey will share paper-crafting projects that beautifully preserve some of their favorite photo connections.

Did you see my name up there??? Yay! Yay! Yay! I can't even begin to tell you just how excited I am to be a part of this class. I'm honored and grateful and beyond stoked! And I can hardly wait for class to start.

    I am sooo excited to take this photo class!! All the elements of a great family or friends photo come together when you learn how to make those important connections and take time for proper composition. I desperately need this class!! I've taken photos of my family for years and rarely get that "money" shot or the "keeper". I am always in awe of the photos that I see from Maggie Holmes, I hope to one day get those shots!!
