Samy’s Camera Photo School is pleased to invite photographers of all levels to our open house. Attend lectures, workshops, and photo walks at the flagship photo school location at 475 S. Fairfax Ave.

This open house is a rare opportunity to sample several of Samy’s course offerings free of charge and get advice from the pros. Space is limited for our free lectures, workshops and photo walks, reserve your spot by registering for a ticket.


Join George for a shortened version of his popular workshop in which he will teach you his tips and tricks for shooting outdoor portraits. George will touch on topics including the quality of soft vs. hard light, the direction of the light, and the use of reflectors; and the best camera settings for more effectively focusing attention on the subject.

He is also a photography educator who teaches at UCLA Extension (2007 Instructor of the Year), Samy’s Camera, and one-on-one.

George Simian was voted one of the top 13 photo instructors in the United States in 2011. Photo District News magazine recently announced the results of their readers poll for best workshop instructors and George Simian made the list.
