Alumni Spotlight

I have taken 3 photography classes with Josh Hardin and I have learned so much! I got my camera almost 4 years ago, and was so confused about everything. Taking these classes have helped me so much, and I couldn’t have had a better instructor. He is easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and super friendly! Definitely take the photo classes with Josh – you will not be disappointed!
