Everyday Magic E-Course

May 4th-June 9th, 2015 | Online
This e-course isn’t about tiny houses, but it IS about using photography as a way to deeply engage with the world around you and being intentional with your life in a way that interests a lot of tiny house fans. It’s taught by Tammy Strobel, who has lived in a tiny house for years (and wrote a whole book about it!). She’s like PAD family, and we’re confident that this course will give you a great technical foundation for photography, and help you carve out a little space for reflection and gratitude in a busy world.

Tammy says: “In my early twenties, I was in such a rush that I didn’t notice everyday magic, like the changing of seasons, the incredible colors at sunset… I reasoned that taking photos would help me slow down and notice the world around me. Taking photos, daily, helped me do both.”
