Teaching Across America

Remember Forever photography program is coming to Jackson April 5-6.

Remember Forever photography program is coming to Jackson April 5-6.

Remember Forever will host five fun and interactive photography workshops in April. Amazon and B & H Camera store are supporting the weekend event as part of Remember Forever's Photographing America initiative.

Luke Ballard started Remember Forever in 2008 as a boutique portrait and wedding photography service. In 2009, he began teaching novice photographers when he saw the how unethical and unprofessional photographers and photography businesses could be. Ballard, who has more than 20 years of experience, began offering the workshops in Australia and is now offering them nationwide.

The company opened in New York City in 2012 and offered its first American workshop in 2013. Remember Forever now has 20 workshops and will offer online photography courses this year.

This year, the award-winning photographer and instructor has taken on the challenge of traveling around the country on a 10-month journey to teach photography lessons. Ballard stops in Jackson April 5 and 6 at Smith Park. The topics covered include an introduction to SLR, beginner and advanced travel photography, and night photography. He also offers a workshop on photographing people, family and children, during which Ballard teaches the best way to capture portraits of family and friends.

Remember Forever Photography Weekend is 9 a.m.-10 p.m. April 5 and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. April 6. The workshops are $129 per person and $95 for the night photography workshop. The space is limited and registration is required. For more information, email [email protected], call 646-736-3231, or visit rememberforever.co.
