The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center is offering a “Basic Photography” class that is a two-part workshop by photographer Tony Pilkington scheduled for Saturday, March 2, and Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In the class, students will learn to “see” the world around them through the eyes of a professional photographer, capturing compelling photos using the digital or film camera you already own. They will learn photography techniques with a special emphasis on how to see and find unusual photos in everyday life.

During the second half of the workshop, the class will venture out of the Fine Arts Center and into downtown Breckenridge for hands-on shooting.

“The techniques you learn in this class will help, whether your goal is to turn your camera into a creative, expressive tool or just shoot better pictures of your kids during your vacation,” Pilkington said.

Pilkington, who is the publisher of the Breckenridge Texan local news website, has photographed a wide-variety of subjects over the years for magazines, wire services, newspapers and business clients. He developed the classes for a program he originally taught in Lubbock and has taught the classes at the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center several times in the past.

The cost for the two-day “Basic Photography” class is $70 per person, with a portion of the fee going to support the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center. Pilkington recommends that students have a digital or film SLR camera for the class.

The classes will be open to anyone age 15 and older.

For more information or to register for the class, send an email to BFAC Director Shalon Wilson at, call the BFAC at 254-559-6602 or visit the center at 207 N. Breckenridge Ave.
