Jack Randall Photography and Video

After discovering a passion for photography, Jack Randall opened his first studio in Dana Point 25 years ago. Since then, there have been a couple new locations, countless weddings and thousands of portraits and engagement photos taken. Soon, Randall will be teaching classes in his upstairs studio.
In the beginning of next year, Randall will be starting three new courses to teach those interested in photography in a different way.
“My theme is to leave your textbooks at home,” Randall said, “and learn to shoot from your heart and your instincts.”
The classes have been a work in progress for about five years, Randall said, but he’s ready to begin them in February.
Randall said there will be three class options: a six-hour course on Saturday; a Monday/Wednesday/Friday class; and a one-month mentorship to learn all the ins and outs.
Classes will discuss how to choose lighting, background and more.
“The mentorship will be up to 20 hours of one on one instruction. There will be a live wedding and up to five family shoots,” Randall said. “It’s for someone who really wants to get involved in photography.”
Randall said the classes will be very small, about five students per session. The dates have not been decided, but Randall said to call the studio for more information.
