Free Lance Digital Photography and Training


      Brian Hartnell is located in Marinette, Wisconsin and covers all of Marinette County and locations outside Marinette.. Brian has his degree in Photography and has been an active pro since 1971. He has closed his full service retail studio and retired but continues to take on projects of interest and training sessions to accommodate the public in learning about subjects he teaches.




Computer Basics & Digital Photo Training


      Teaching film / digital photography and basic computer skills programs since 1985, I continue to offer programs in various cities/villages to augment adult learning programs.


     The training we cover is reduced to 3 and 6 hour programs on specific topics to make your learning more successful. If classroom instruction is not timely for you we can do private instruction which does not require as much time as a classroom due to the personal nature of our training on your specific topic.


     Call us for your training needs or check out our list of programs being offered below & to the right. If you wish to be put on our monthly newsletter email brian@giphoto.com


     Personal training in your home will also allow us to zero in on your specific needs and therefore reduce the amount of time to train you on a topic.
