Yes, people are dropping hints, Christmas music hogs the radio dial and stores are more crowded than usual. The symptoms all point to that most wonderful time of the year when we enjoy great food with our favorite people and maybe get a few gifts we like. Allow me to suggest a Class Pass from the St. Louis Photo Authority® as a fun way to benefit the photographers in your life. Get a one class pass good for any of our regular classes (and can be a partial credit towards our workshops) for only $39. Our three class pass can be had for just $99 (saving you $18) and the 10 class pass for just $250 ( $140 less than individually). 

We've got a lot of classes posted for the first two months of the year, and many more will follow, so there's plenty to choose from. Here are the links to what we've posted so far on our club sites:
