Photo of Janice

Workshop given by Janice Street a photographer/graphic designer. Native to Ottawa and studied commercial art at Algonquin Collage. Photography started as a hobby then crossed over into my graphic design.  Over the past 5 years photography has been my main focus and income. I have produced books, greeting cards, DVD's, and showed my work at many local artist tours, and presently showing my fine art photography at Orange Gallery.  

I have been photographing for more than 30 years and teaching beginner and intermediate photography for 4 years in the Ottawa area. I am a photographer with an arts background or some would say " An artist with a camera"  and want to help people access the art and emotion in their photography by first learning the workings of their camera and then giving you artistic fundamentals on composing, lighting and seeing the potential through the view finder.

Testimonials

I've attended two of Janice's workshops and have found them to be very helpful.  The small groups facilitate discussions and encourage questions.  Participants are able to make comments as well obtain advice or feedback on issues they are experiencing.  Janice is very helpful in locating particular functions on our cameras if we can't find them and provides feedback on the pictures we have taken.  I've found these elements to be superior to other workshops I have taken.  Overall, it is a very hands-on and personal coaching experience.  I would recommend it to all.

Brenda

"This workshop was excellent. Janice is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about photography. I learned a lot and will go back for level 2."

Marie

"Informative, helpful and interesting. I learned a LOT about my Nikon D3200 despite everyone having different cameras. All the basics and more were covered and we even got to put our new skills to the test with an outdoor exercise in the second half of the class. Thanks! I am really pleased :)"

Amanda

"Excellent workshop. Janice is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, motivating and sincerely cares that you leave the workshop with new skills and that your questions have been answered. Highly recommend."

Moira

This was a great workshop, informative using terms and examples that were easy to follow and understand at a good pace! I would highly recommend Janice's workshop to anyone! Thanks so much and I look forward to taking more of your workshops!

Tammy

It was an excellent class and I have both already recommended it to a friend and am planning on taking more classes from her myself!

Excellent course and teacher. I took a 3 hours course at Henry's and I 
think I got more from Janice progam with in the first hour.

Richard

Just wanted to say that I LOVED the workshop yesterday. It was incredibly helpful, technically rich and still very easy to understand, even as a complete beginner.

Kari-Anne

Thank you for a really good day yesterday.  The day flew by! (Level 2)

I particularly liked how you drove home the message on the many tips on how to take a better picture.  Going through many pictures the way you did and then having us call out all the tips as you wrote them on the board was a good trick.  I honestly feel like it all sunk in - now I need to put it all into practice.  I will also remember two things that you said (and as I mentioned yesterday):   One is that you mentioned how long it has taken you to get where you are and the other is that when you said that spending pretty much two solid years on learning more about photography made me realize that I shouldn't get discouraged when I'm trying to get my head wrapped around something new.  It's fun learning and improving and your workshops are a big help.  

And thank you for taking the time to see what the problem was with my focussing.  Much appreciated!!

Linda

My daughter and I both attended. We both left eager to experiment with our new found knowledge. Of course your digital SLR camera comes with a manual, but who reads them - hands on is much better and this workshop is well worth the time! We are both eager to return for more instruction. Thank you

Kelly and Charlene

Andrée and I enjoyed your workshop very much. Your relaxed approach to the workshop made it fun while informative. The location was great. Francois

Thank you very much for the great course on Saturday. It was great!!! And unlike other courses I have taken, I was actually able to later replicate what I had learned in your class. Wonderful teaching style.

Adina

Hi Janice, just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed your workshop yesterday. 
I'm finally off auto and was very excited to try some AV and TV shots.  My husband and youngest son were playing chess last evening and I took some interesting chess piece shots.  There truly is beauty in everything! You are a great teacher and your passion comes through.  You have an amazing eye and I just can’t say enough about your photography.

Thanks again and when you are going to do the evening get together, I would really like to attend.

Trish

I definitely recommend this workshop if you want to design better images. Janice uses her photography knowledge and experience to teach the participants and lead effective discussions.

Francois

Great event. very professional and informative.

Judy

I very much enjoyed Janice's level 1 class. The point of the class was to learn how to use the other functions of the camera beside the automatic mode. By the end of the 5 hour class I definitely felt more comfortable and ready to practice what Janice taught. Janice is a very good teacher and took time to check in on each of us as we tried out each mini lesson. I plan on signing up for her level 2 class or maybe a one-on-one session.

Linda

This was a great introductory course for those wanting to learn some of the fundamentals of using their digital SLR (DSLR). Highly recommended for a one day intro.

I'm so glad I took this workshop. There were many times when I accidentally did a good thing and produced a solid image but I was never sure of how I got there. This class sealed that up for me and I'm really enjoying what I've learned! I'm looking forward to taking some more classes and improving on my current level. Rayven would like to expand her knowledge on night shooting and I'll likely take that course with her along with some others. Please keep us on your email list for future courses. Thanks again Janice - it was a very pleasant day of learning. You're a great teacher as well as a brilliant artist.

Cheers! Colleen

Amazing! Thinking of taking the second class. :)

I thoroughly enjoyed spending my day learning from you. Your expertise, tricks and vision have inspired me back toward my long lost love of photography...thank you!!! I am very much looking forward to what's next...!!

Vicki

Janice Street is a warm and patient teacher and we learned a good deal of stuff in her class. She ensured we were all up to speed, gave everyone one-on-one attention when needed and I'm looking forward to taking more classes with her.

Colleen

Janice's classes were amazing she is a top notch teacher and photographer (spoken as her worst student!). She has certainly challenged and reignited my passion for photography and for improving my skills. I would recommened her classes to both beginner and intermediate levels and beyond.

I really enjoyed your course, Janice.  You obviously have a passion and a talent and it is great that you are willing to share that.  I learned a lot about settings on my camera, and now just have to practice!  I loved seeing some of your pictures.  They are amazing!  And inspiring!
Ellen

She is an excellent teacher. Most of the students were in photography for many years including myself. I have learned many techniques from her. Arvind Kamble

I really learned a lot during the coarse. The day flew by, I liked that it was a hands on coarse as well. Brittney

Janice helps to simplify the whole photographing experience! Interesting and fun!!!

After the level 1 workshop I registered to the level 2 one. She makes everything very easy to understand and good balance of theory and practical excercises.

I just wanted to thank you for a great class. I really learned allot and now I will be able to use my camera to its full potential. I would recommend your class to friends and family.
Jamie

    She is really professional and she knows what she is doing and teaching. .I enjoyed my time there and I will really recommend to all begniners in photography Uzma

Janice is a very good teacher, patient and explains things in a fun way. I intend to do more classes with her.
Jane

I was very interested in taking the workshop level 2. I took the first one on September 29th and it was amazing! I'm still playing and learning my camera! -Stéphanie-

Great workshop with a straightforward approach, thanks Janice! Albert


I LOVED the level 1 course today.  Thank you for being hands on and making me feel that with practice
I can get off automatic mode! I would like to take Level 2. Louise

This was a great introductory course for those wanting to learn some of the fundamentals of using their digital SLR (DSLR). Highly recommended for a one day intro.

I liked the length of the program, what she was offering, and of course, the great price. Well worth the time and money. Small class, hands on and really enjoyed the outdoor exercise. Look forward to taking Level II.

Thank you once again for providing such a great course for us.  Your class was enjoyable in every way; educational, thought provoking, challenging and fun.  I especially appreciated the feedback and time you took with me.   I look forward to taking part in more of your classes and would appreciate being advised when you are having the outings.  I would definitely like to be included if possible.  
June

I really enjoyed the workshop. I liked the way your love of photography comes through as it almost being 2nd nature to you.

Gavin

Hi Janice: Thanks for the notes, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at your class. I have been out a few times trying to reinforce what you taught me and would have liked to come back for more. Please keep me in mind if you run another class later in the year.…

Bette - age 50’s

Just wanted to say that I LOVED the workshop yesterday. It was incredibly helpful, technically rich and still very easy to understand, even as a complete beginner.

Kari-Anne

I wanted to say thank you as I really enjoyed the beginner's class with you. I felt you were very confident and passionate about your knowledge of photography. I liked the ease the class seemed to have with this group, even with the different levels of ability.

I think the Shenkman Arts Center board room and the surrounding area was a great place for a class with lots of photo opportunities for our practice exercises around it. I so appreciated you sharing your photos and I hope to take part again in the future.

Carolyn

I enjoyed your workshop on Saturday. I found it simple to understand, especially after the practice exercises you gave us to do with the follow-up afterwards. I would like to make sure that you have me down for Part 2 - Catherine-

I’ve only had a brief time to practice since the workshop and it was an opportunity to use the Tv setting to capture my grand-daughter throwing a football at a flag football game. I’m preparing some of my photos for our church Bazaar in November and might just use that shot of the barn through the branches.
The visualization techniques we used with f-stop and depth of field really helped put things into perspective, so to speak.

Brian -Ottawa - age 50’s

Hi Janice, I had a great day with you and really benefited from your explanations of F-stops and Shutter Speed. I had read my manual and watched the DVD that came with my camera before I came but never really understood how they worked until your workshop. I was still a bit fuzzy about ISO when I left but after reading the information attached to this e-mail it makes a lot more sense to me. I have been experimenting with the different types of metering settings on my camera and having a lot more success with achieving properly exposed photographs more consistently.

Kathryn 15 years old

I did not know about Janice before, but after the level 1 workshop I registered to the level 2 one. She makes everything very easy to understand and good balance of theory and practical excercises.

Hi Janice.   I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your Photoshop sessions.  I didn't know a lot about the program but you showed me the basics that I needed to start with, as well as a few techniques that I've always wanted to learn.  I look forward to practicing and applying all that you've taught me.   Thanks so much for all your help.
