Happy Holidays!

Announcement The Birmingham School of Photography will not be having classes in December. One of our co-founders, Farkhondeh Farzad, has been battling ALS for almost 5 years and is now in hospice care and is fighting for her life. We are taking some time off spend with her and to grieve for her when she is gone. This will be a new chapter in all of our lives and we need time to adjust. We will have the January schedule up shortly with new classes for the new year. Thank you for your support and business.
