A few years ago I took a few photography classes from Nicole Hill, a local professional photographer, before she moved to San Francisco. In Utah there are more "professional" photographers than you can shake a stick at, but Nicole is the real deal: she's Brooks Institute-trained and her work appears in magazines and national ad campaigns. I enjoyed her classes and picked up some good tips. Since then Nicole has been busy building her own photo/design teaching empire and has created online classes and textbooks.
I've been wanting to try out their Illustrator textbook but the price was too steep for me. So when I saw that they were having a book party at a local design store and that books would be $20 I marked my calendar.
If you're interested in going, let me know and let's try and meet up!
