The end of the year means sales, holiday feasts, vacations, and of course, New Year’s resolutions. As gyms get flooded with newly minted fitness buffs and Trader Joe’s queues get longer with people looking to tackle Whole 30 in the new year, consider a hobby for your 2019 New Year’s resolution. Learn and master capturing all your funny, amazing, and precious moments throughout the new year and beyond with a photography class! You can flood your friends’ feeds with high-res shots of your vacation in the Maldives, intimate portraits of your furbaby deep in thought, and obviously, your impossibly stacked ice cream cone against a brick wall. Soon you’ll be the go-to person for LinkedIn profile pictures, actor headshots, Etsy shops, Christmas cards, and everything in between.
