review & giveaway!

Hey all!  Just wanted to let you know that Erica from Confessions of a Homeschooler is doing a review and giveaway of my photography curriculum today!!  If you’re a homeschooler, or know one, Erica is an amazing resource!  She and her 6th grader have been using one of the Foto Finch courses this school year as an art elective.  Check out her blog at to see her thoughts and for a chance to win one of the courses for yourself!  There’s also a discount code for her readers!

The Foto Finch is the teaching branch of Treu Image Photography.  We currently offer two courses, both for middle and high school aged students (more or less :).  Shooting In Manual teaches the more technical side of using your camera, while Composition & Photojournalism talks about  creating visually interesting images and capturing the story.  Both courses have several lessons which cover the photography concepts, as well as 30 hands on shooting assignments to give students the opportunity to learn the concepts in a more practical way!

We are currently working on recreating one of the courses for elementary aged students, so keep an eye out!  If you’d like to receive updates on curriculum and promotions, please send an email to with the word “Notifications” in the title.

For more info, please check out, and don’t forget to head over to Erica’s awesome blog today for a chance to win!

Also, I know it’s been a really long time since I’ve put up a blog post.  Please stay tuned for a new entry :)

workshop seat giveaway!

workshop seat giveaway!

i’m so excited about the foto finch workshops this summer!  i love people and being with people and teaching and hanging out and eating!  so basically, i’m looking forward to everything about the workshops :)

with mothers and fathers day just around the corner, i thought it would be really fun to do a giveaway for two workshop spots (winner’s choice for which date they’d like to attend :)  my heart for these workshops is to help moms and dads (and gmas and uncles and everyone else!) out there who really want to take better pictures of their families.  with the way digital photography is these days, a lot of people have nicer cameras but aren’t sure how to really use them.  if you’ve ever read a camera manual, it’s seriously like trying to learn another language!  i hope the foto finch workshops give you the know how to be the photographer you really want to be!

so here’s the deal:

  1. you can’t enter yourself.  instead, think of a deserving individual who you think would benefit from this training!  (and if you really want to win a spot, get someone to enter your name!)
  2. once you’ve got a name in mind, leave a comment at the bottom of this post giving their name and why you think they deserve to win a spot in one of the workshops!   make sure to leave their email (so i can contact them when they win!)  also, leave your name and email so i can contact you as well.
  3. for another chance to win, go to treu image photography’s facebook page and “like” us.  you should know that we like you too :)  come back here and leave a comment saying you did so
  4. for a third entry, post about the giveaway on your facebook page!  you might say something like, “i’m entering my sister, jane doe, to win a spot in a foto finch workshop with @treu image photography!”  make sure to use the @ symbol to tag correctly so i can check :)  come back here and leave a comment saying you did so.
the contest will run until midnight on thursday, may 10th.  two winners will be chosen using and announced the following day!  okay, that’s it folks!  best of luck to you and your mom, uncle or bestie; i hope you win!
and just because i don’t like doing a post without pics, please enjoy some instagrams with the boys and my sister’s new ridiculously cute kitten :)
