  1. I had the pleasure of taking courses with Chandler Studios and it has made such a difference in my work. John is patient, kind, easy to understand, takes his time teaching and even will go out of his way to help you. Thank you John for going above and beyond and being someone I look up to. Look forward to learning more from you!

  2. Being able to have a creative thought and be able to have it come out of your camera as you imagined is an amazing feeling. In 2011, after taking classes at the college that just didn’t give me what I needed, I spent time with John in his beginner class. I learned the basics, and was encouraged to shoot on RAW. I have never looked back. Having a strong foundation to build on is so crucial. If you are interested in exploring what you can create with your camera, take a class with John. The sky is the limit, if you start with a good foundation.
