Your camera doesn't take pictures - you use it to make pictures, in the same way a musician plays an instrument or an artists uses a brush. The camera is your instrument. First you learn how to play it, then how to make beautiful music with it - and there are only five controls you need to do that.
Think about it, great photographers of the past took breath-taking images on the most basic of cameras that had only three. That's because they understood the creative relationship between settings, composition and light - the bedrock upon which you build your photos.
If they could do it with their clunky old cameras, there's no reason why you can't too.
Photography is not as complicated as some make it out to be. The multitude of features manufacturers put into their cameras make them needlessly complex. The really good news is that photography is just a bit of knowledge and a lot of practise. I mean, you love taking photos right?
Allow me to teach you that knowledge, in sequence so it makes sense and give you weekly exercises to gain experience, make it easy and effortless. Let me show you how to 'see' photos, make engaging compositions and exploit light so your photos truly pop.
On completing checkout, we'll email you a receipt and a few minutes later your log in details to our online training centre, (you can change these once in your account). We'll add tutorial content every seven days to completion of the course. You can pause or speed up your course should you wish.
'Masterclass' is a series of video lessons, supporting notes and exercises. Exercises are a combination of videos and step-by-step instructions. Some lessons have accompanying images taken during the respective video for you to download and get a proper look at on your own screen, rather than through a video player.
Week 1: Cameras, Kit and The Art Of Exposure
Week 2: Superpowers and Creative Exposure
Week 3: Pin Sharp Pictures, Colour & Focal Length Magic
Week 4: Composition & Light
If you're here, it’s likely you have been flirting with photography. Maybe for years. You’ve surfed the Internet, picked up hints and tips - and had some successes. You’ve seen glimpses of what’s possible. But you're frustrated. Sometimes you get great images - but not always consistently.
It's really simple. If you try to learn anything by absorbing random pieces of information, of variable quality, in an unstructured way it's going to be time-consuming and potentially painful because there'll be gaps in your learning. It's just an inefficient way go about it. It will take years to meander to a place of confidence and competence - regardless of subject.
If it's time to get serious and swap frustration for fulfilment, if it's time to swap chaos for structure and shortcut the journey to becoming a confident and competent photographer, this is where you need to be.
If you're not 100% confident with settings, composition and qualities of light, if they're not effortless and easy then my Masterclass In Photography is for you, because these three things are the bedrock on which you build - and once you're ready to do that, the sky's the limit.
Commit to this course and 28 days from now your frustrations will have melted away, because you my friend, will be camera competent, feeling confident and looking at your world like a photographer. Or your money back...
