    There are several places which u can go & take courses.

    My advice is for u to get ur first camera, work within ur budget to get the best bang for buck, and pop out often to shoot before taking courses.

    Reason for that? Some ppl learn things fast, some ppl learn things slow. I'm sure u don't want to think urself as a fast learner and see ur jaw drop the moment u hear all the technical terms being used. Its best to have a basic grasp of the technicalities first before enrolling in any course so that u can better appreciate it.

    Places like SLCC do have beginner courses at reasonable costs with nice & experienced instructors.

    As for camera? Get what u think is great. Canon, Nikon, Minolta... these are all pretty established brands.

    Hilarion Goh is conducting a short session on travel photography. Fees is at $50.00 (i think with refreshments). You can bring your cam and pictures along to get some of his comments.

    Here's the link: http://www.juztalents.com/photographycourse/web.htm

    This has nothing to do with me. I got it in my email from a friend. Read your post and thought you might like to give it a try.

    God bless,

    Daniel

    go to the library and read all the photography books first. Good books to start are those beginner level books. You can really learn a lot from the library and it is free!!
