Think Like A Photographer

"There's nothing worse than a sharp picture - of a fuzzy idea" [Ansel Adams]

Mike PortraitThe 7 Blocks is the "missing link" between technical and creative aspects of photography.  It's the essential photographer's thought process and all you need to become a truly advanced photographer.

Could you cook superb meals if you didn't think like a chef? Would you get a standing ovation if you didn't think like a musician? NO - and it's the same with photography. 

I can teach you this simple 7 step thought process so you'll quickly, easily and instinctively have the perfect lighting, composition and camera settings for every image.

If you want people to love your images, knowing about the camera isn't enough. To be a photographer you have to think like one.

Simple and straight forward. I suggest you listen to what he says.

Your Camera Really Does Need YOU

I'm always amazed at my student's knowledge but they don't know how to connect that knowledge creatively, easily and subconsciously. They often panic and put the camera on Auto. But cameras are not creative.  Cameras will only record what you tell them to and make their best guess according to pre-programmed parameters.

If you can't think like a photographer it's impossible to BE a photographer. Complete The 7 Building Blocks of Photography and you will access (and add to) your knowledge of composition, lenses, light etc and be able to take the actions you need to take for virtually any image and situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our 7 week courses FAQ section will answer any other queries. There are links back here when you've found your answers.

If you are a beginner I DON'T want you to buy this course yet because you're not ready.

If you're not sure how to control the things bulletted above I recommend my Masterclass in Photography first. Watch the video, make notes and practice the techniques. Copy the eBook Course onto a mobile device and take it with you and make sure you complete the exercises.

When you've practised and mastered that, your next step is to come back to the "7 Blocks" and learn how to think your way through all you've learnt and use it for almost any image situation. Quickly, effortlessly and easily.
