hard to say which one is the best. i've enjoyed my basic classes with sir jo avila and photoworks by leo castillo. they taught me different lessons in photography. there are also basic photography taught in pcci. hard to compare them all unless you analyze the curriculum and attended all hehehe.

Correct =). Very Correct... and looking for the best school is somewhat linked with being a good photographer IMHO Focus, Shoot, Shoot, Shoot, Analyze and Shoot again its the easiest way to learn.

just a thought that not all good photographers can teach well... parang sa school, the most intelligent guy may not even be able to teach his classmates when they ask help.. kasi teaching is different. 

so far, photoworks, fppf, ken go, dino lara are good instructors.. you go home learning something, inspired, and great sessions.  they say pcci teaches well too.. i would have loved to attend some classes of jo avila, but the schedules prevented me.. lagi conflict.

then another factor will be the money you are willing to pay for the classes.

cheers!

it's hard to say which is the best (and it is unfair to say which is best) if you haven't tried them all for comparison's sake. however, i'm sure there are a lot of GOOD photography instructors. i'm now taking up basic photography seminars under sir jo avila. so far,i think i'm getting my money's worth.  :)

i also attended both classes both of them are very good clases and fun. I think its just how you apply different lessons and tips to your shooting......

I think the best basic photography class in Manila would be the Federation Photo Workshop that is held every weekend for 5 whole day sessions. They have been doing this for more than a decade ago, they have master the method to perfection. The photography professors headed By Mr. Ador Pamintuan, Mr. Vic Sison, Ms. Cecile Angeles, Mr. Toch Arellano all experts in their own fields will give the students their money's worth. Its easier to learn together as a group. Shoot out after the lectures. During the graduation class if I am available, they would always invite me to give a inspiration talk to the class. They are encourage to form a camera club among themselves. During the sessions, they have on the spot competitions and invited exprienced photographers are invited to give critics to the images. The experiences of these instructors are priceless. You will quickly learn the ropes and be on the way to being a commercial photographer. Magiceye

I've attended both Jo Avila's and FFFP's Basic photography courses.  Imho, both courses are good - value for money.  Jo limits his students to around 15 students per course, while FPPF can go as high as 50 students per course.

Suggestion lang:  Para hindi information overload (I've experienced this!) while attending your basic classes... After buying your new cam, try to read the manual first (At least 3x), then go outside and enjoy your cam and shoot for a month or 2.  For sure, many questions will be formed inside your head.  Then attend a basic photo course afterwards.  Goodluck!    :)
