Why buy a course when there's loads of free stuff out there?

As a beginner you need an experienced guide to help you learn photography in the correct order. I can do that. You could go it alone, but that could take ages.

There's loads of great free stuff out there, but there's also a lot of rubbish. As a beginner, how will you know the difference? How will you know which order to learn controls, settings and techniques in for them to work? You could waste weeks of your life on these two alone. Maybe you already have.

You can't learn photography by memorising settings, tricks or buying more expensive gadgets. It's about learning what a few camera controls do and how to combine them in different ways for whatever shot you want to take. Do you want a blurry background or a sharp one? Do you want a sense of movement in a photo, or to freeze it? Do you know which controls and how to combine them to achieve either of these examples?

Learning photography also involves things that are not camera controls. Are there light quality, composition or right moment settings on a camera?

I have guided 1000s of photographers like you to better photos which they're proud of. And if I don't do that for you I'll give you your money back, so you have nothing to lose.
