Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to learn something new and not really getting it? Frustration takes over, you throw your camera at a wall, you give up… and then… you… eventually buy a new camera.

Let’s forget about that little “situation,” because here, you’ll have an expert photography mentor right next to you, guiding you along – hands on, one to one so you can improve your photography skills instantly!

So What Will You Learn?

When using automatic mode have you ever wondered why your photographs appear too dark or too bright? This is because your camera’s auto mode is “metering” the light without understanding what YOU want to do with the photograph. It makes a mathematic calculation and acts on that. You’ll learn about finding the best light and how to control it so you can see how it affects your photograph. No more blurry images or missing that gorgeous sunset. More importantly, you’ll learn how to use your digital camera in manual mode. Over time we’ve refined our manual mode teaching philosophy. In fact, its simplicity is something we’re quite proud of. You’ll learn about shutter speed, aperture, ISO and controlling the light with your camera. Our courses are constantly evolving as we discover new hidden photographic hot spots around the world, join us and capture your own unique photographs!
