"I know that camera skills are teachable, and that great composition is teachable, and I believe great photographs
come from a combination of training, practice, vision and passion. I'm a firm believer that all students can be successful in Photography and Imaging. I give students private attention and lead them to find their voice in their photos. I concentrate on private and group lessons in the field, in photographers' homes and in my studio in Durango, Colorado.
Whether your camera of choice is your iPhone, a Holga, a Point and Shoot Camera, or a high-end Digital Camera, or your View Camera, vision is the most important thing I can inspire in you. " Kit Frost
What students are saying about Chase the Light Instruction
I took my first class in beginning black and white film photography from Kit Frost in 1999. Kit laid out the basics clearly with good examples, and provided plenty of individual instruction and encouragement. I learned a lot
and kept coming back. Since then, I've taken Kit's classes in dark room technique, digital photography, Adobe Photoshop, and Lightroom; I've accompanied her on wildflower, waterfall, and night sky workshops around the
Four corners; and I've profited from many individual lessons. Kit's instruction is always well planned and organized, but flexible enough to meet the needs of individual students or, on field trips, the demands of the light or the weather. She treats even the dumbest questions seriously and helpfully. As a retired teacher myself, I have a great appreciation for
Kit's teaching abilities. Her enthusiasm for both nature and art is infectious, and her instruction promotes responsible care of the environment. Besides, she's a wonderful landscape artist. It's a treat to view our beautiful Four Corners through her eyes.
My husband and I have taken several photography classes from Kit Frost. Every time we learned a great deal and also had fun. She knows photography well, is passionate about it, and is a great teacher and a joy to be around. Kit has it all. I highly recommend her classes to one and all.
I have taken several workshops with Kit and in each she improved my photographic capabilities. She is very good at offering assistance and photographic insight to individual students, whether they be novices or advanced amateurs. A workshop with Kit is an exciting adventure in photogenic places.
As a student of Kit Frost for the past 14 years, I have learned so much both in the classroom and on the workshops. Kit is a fabulous teacher for a myriad of reasons. She is educated in both art and photography, she was a classroom teacher for many years, she is extremely knowledgeable about the art, equipment and post production she has experienced many phases of the profession, and she openly displays passion and enthusiasm for this field. Kit takes each student where they are and gently guides them in their quest for iconic images. Her praises are lavish and her critiques are gentle but truthful. People who participate in the workshops and classes can't help but improve, She certainly sets high standards for her students when you observe her own work and listen to Kit describe her process.
She spends a lot of time scouting and organizing the different areas so that her workshop participants will have the best opportunity to experience what she is teaching.
I have had been working with Kit for several years and what a pleasure it has been. She has a strong love of photography and that love shows not only in her work but how she works with her students. No matter if we are talking about lighting, composition or any other facet it is done in a way that relates to each student and not just a "text book" explanation. Her workshops are hands on, every student has one on one time with her reviewing photos and suggesting how it could be improved. Kit's enthusiasm and patience is never-ending whether you are in the classroom or out in the field. I feel so fortunate to have Kit Frost as my instructor; she has made such a difference in my life in how "I see" photography.
