Use your camera
the way it was intended
In-Person Camera workshops
With Tornado Hunter Greg Johnson
Two days to better photos...guaranteed.
My name is Greg Johnson and I have made my living for the past 25 years as a photographer. I was an early adopter of digital camera technology, however, my real art is in the sharing of my knowledge with others. Over the past 15 years, I have taught thousands of people how to use a camera. As a professional photographer, I value time and simplicity. Camera Easy is my philosophy.
Greg will give you the ‘ah-ha’ moment. The Intro course is designed to teach a technical understanding of your Digital SLR or Mirrorless camera.
Simply put, you will understand how your camera works by the end of the workshop, and you will have a ton of fun while learning! Over 15 hours of instruction throughout the 2 days. Generally, classes run from 9 am – 4 pm.

What to expect
What To Expect: My goal with every guest (experienced or not) is to give them the tools needed to understand the camera. I have a procedure for taking photos. We do the first step and then practice it, by actually taking pictures, then move on to the next step. By the end of the first day you will be shooting in manual mode and understand why and how to adjust the photo to make it look the way you want. Every guest will feel comfortable, no matter their previous level of experience with the camera.
General topic areas
- Manual mode
- Aperture Priority
- Hands-on shooting
- White Balance
- What causes blur
- Understanding exposure
- Creative Process
- Handling the camera

Frequently asked questions
Most frequent questions and answers
I cannot make it to a workshop. Do you have an online version of your workshops?
Yes! Camera Easy is my online course and I even recommend it as a followup to the live events. If you can’t make it out to a live event workshop, then Camera Easy is just what the doctor ordered.
I have not yet purchased a camera but I intend to and would like to take the course. Do you provide cameras to learn with?
We have a camera we can lend for the course. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make these arrangements.
Am I able to purchase a gift certificate for someone?
Yes, gift certificates are available in any denomination and can be purchased by emailing email@example.com. We will wait to contact the recipient until after the gift has been received.
I have a mirrorless camera and would love to know how to use it. Are these classes beneficial for my type of camera.
Yes. Although most cameras are DSLR, mirroless in newer technology and everything we do in the workshop applies to mirrorless as well as DSLR cameras.
If I am already familiar with my camera, is the intro workshop right for me?
Yes, this is definitely the correct workshop. There will of course be some repetition on a few items, however, I have a very different approach and from my experience, with thousands of photographers that have come through this course, everyone benefits starting here.
With that being said, going straight into the Intermediate lessons on CameraEasy.ca is right for some people. The following questions will help direct you to the correct workshop:
- What camera are you using?
- Do you shoot in manual mode?
- Do you have an external flash?
- Please list your two favourite lenses that you currently own?
- If you shoot at night (aurora/stars/lightning) please attach one or two images.
- By answering these questions I will be able to ensure we get you in the right workshop.
- Please email your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a pure beginner. I literally know nothing about the camera and only use the auto stuff. Is this the course for me?
Yes. The intro course will allow you to understand how the camera works. Everyone has to start somewhere!
I have a camera which is an advanced travel camera, it has the usual capabilities but no interchangeable lens. Is it worth me taking the course when I have a limited camera?
Although it is not a dslr camera, it has every bit of the necessary functionality and is totally suitable for the workshop. That being said, one of the outcomes from the workshop will likely be that you will discover that there are a few limitations with this camera. I suggest taking the workshop with this camera and if and when you decide to upgrade to a better version, you will have a great idea of what you need and want.
I have an older Camera. Is it ok to use at the workshop?
The technology may be older but they are great for learning. It will be fine for the workshop and then you can make a more informed decision about purchasing after your two days with Greg. If you want to purchase something prior to the workshop, I can provide you some advice.
