Katie JohnsonStudent
What's Included In The Course
The entire course is Expertly Designed to help you easily learn the techniques that will help you take better photos starting on your very first day. We know what it is like to learn something new and have tailored every step to make it easy, fun, and engaging.
Our "Industry Leading" 22 Modules make it easy to quickly gain all the knowledge, skills, and techniques to launch your career as a Professional Photographer or to simply take great photos that impress your family and friends. Each module takes you step-by-step at a pace that is comfortable for you.
We provide step-by-step videos, tutorials, and hands-on activities in everyone of our 22 Modules to make learning easy and fun. Other courses only give you articles that can be difficult to understand.
You'll learn the techniques used by the Pros. It might surprise you to know that just a few small & quick techniques "like where to point your camera in relation to lighting" can make a huge difference! And we teach you many simple to advanced techniques you can begin using on your first day to impress your friends, family, or even paying clients.
"Photography should be FUN!" You can complete the course on your own schedule. We recommend taking 3-6 weeks but you can complete it in less or more time depending on your available time.
We provide you with "Optional" Quizzes to see your current skill level so you can improve. The quizzes are NOT required unless you want full certification.
We teach real "down to earth" techniques to help you take better photos your very first day. Other courses use hard to understand "technical jargon" that makes learning photography more confusing rather than more simplistic, easy, and fun.

This course is designed for beginner, intermediate, & advanced photographers. We understand that learning photography can be an intimidating process... that's why we organized this course so beginners can begin with the "absolute basics" and work their way up. At the same time more advanced photographers are able to skip the basics and focus on advanced methods and skills.
There is no expensive equipment required. Many use their existing cameras or smartphone cameras. We teach you how to improve your photos on any equipment you are using. This way you can apply the same learning’s to more advanced cameras, if you decide to upgrade in the future.
