Whelp! The internet reminded me a few days back that I’ve officially been shooting photography for over 10 years now. I’ll be honest, I thought my progress would have been further.

When you think of Best Buy, photography lessons are probably not what first comes to mind. But, the chain now offers photography workshops in 80 of their stores across the US.
