Tools Behind the Click‬© Photography Workshop

Our Owner & Photographer Lesa Van Meter has a passion for sharing her love of photography and for empowering other artists to further craft their skills. So, Lesa designed ‪Tools Behind the Click‬© ‪- a group photography workshop‬.

If you have fancy camera but aren’t sure how to utilize anything but the automatic modes, this is the PERFECT workshop for you! And YES, she can handle DSLR, Canon, Nikon, 35mm, etc. Lesa is not a one trick pony.

This laid-back workshop is a super fun way for you and other fellow photography lovers (4-8 attendees required) to get hands-on, real-life photography lessons. Forget frustrating YouTube tutorials – enjoy time with a professional photographer instead – you will be SO glad you did! This specific workshop is offered a few different dates in 2017.


Our APRIL ‪Tools Behind the Click‬© workshop is being offered in a one day event on the afternoon of Sunday, April 23 from 1-3pm.

Gain a stronger and more confident command of your digital camera by learning fundamental photography techniques including Camera Modes, Exposure, DOF, Composition, Equipment, Lighting, and more.

This is a “walking” photography workshop – we will take time to explore downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana with our cameras. Participants MUST be prepared (walking shoes, water bottle, etc.) and physically able to climb steps and walk across varying terrain.

Photography hobbyists ages 17+ (with skill levels ranging from beginner to intermediate) are welcome to attend.


Attendees must bring a camera (either digital OR film – Lesa is highly skilled in both mediums!) to each day of the workshop. It is worth noting that if you do not yet own a DSLR camera but plan to purchase one, this workshop can help you learn more about the amazing possibilities and power that DSLRs give (over digital point-and-shoot cameras).

If you are a professional photographer (or are wanting to start your own photography business), this workshop is not designed for you – it is designed for people who do photography for fun and pleasure (NOT for income). Lesa DOES offer one-on-one mentoring for those types of needs!!! Contact us for details.



We need 2 lucky volunteers to model for our next photography workshop (Tools Behind the Click‬©) downtown Fort Wayne on Thursday, March 23 from 6-7:30pm. No experience necessary. Must be 16-36 years of age. All genders and ethnicities welcome. MUST CONTACT US BY MONDAY AT 5:00pm to be considered!
