Hello friends! Happy to have you here in my little photography corner of the web.

Kristen Duke Photography began in 2004 officially, and after years of photographing families, I began teaching people how to use their manual cameras in 2010 with my beginner Say NO to Auto books and classes. Then came the intermediate Get Focused book, and eventually ALL of my tips in video form with the Camera Academy course.  Feel free to email me with any questions!

I’m happy to share photo tips with you as well as share about my photography course: The Camera Academy for Moms and my two books: Say NO to Auto and Get Focused.
