  • Beginners to intermediate level photographers.
  • Everyone wanting to gain a better understanding of their camera.
  • Anyone wanting to learn new techniques that will improve your photography.
  • This course is for anyone who has been using their camera on the automatic modes who wants to learn how to control it using Manual Mode.
  • This course is for anyone wanting to get serious about earning money with their photography
  • People who want to overcome the frustration of knowing your camera is good enough to produce high-quality photos, but is struggling to make them.

What do you need to take this course?

  • You will need a camera with Manual Mode – believe it or not, that’s most cameras … even the one on your smart phone, because there are many apps available to enable Manual Mode on your phone camera.
  • You will need a desire to learn some technical stuff. It may seem like a big step to take if you are only using the Auto modes on your camera, but with the solid teaching I offer from over 30 years experience, clear illustrations and in-depth exercises and assignments, you can master manual mode!
  • You will need a computer to view and compare the photos you will be taking during this course.
  • You will need to know how to view the metadata of your photos. There are many programs and apps that will let you do this (too many to show you on each one.)
  • A tripod will be helpful but is not essential

At the end of my course, students will be able to …

  • Be confident to control their camera using manual settings to adjust the exposure.
  • Have a good understanding of the basic function of their camera
  • Understand how to use the exposure meter
  • Understand different lighting conditions and how these impact photography
  • Understand how their camera ‘sees’ compared to how our eyes see (and why this is important)

In this course you’ll learn how to use your camera on manual mode and why this is important to help build your creative photographic style.

When I was starting out I struggled to get my head around all the numbers and physics of photography, I just wanted to make good pictures. Thankfully I had a couple of friends who had a little experience and taught me some, and I relied on books and magazines to learn more. When I started working at the newspaper I thought it would be a wonderful place to learn, but sadly, the other photographers were very secretive about how they worked and were not interested in teaching me. This experience has motivated me to teach, to make it easier for you to learn to really enjoy using your camera.

By the end of this course, and after practicing what you’ve learned, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to control your camera manually and how to create photos that will have your friends asking “Wow! How did you get the shot?” You will know how your camera functions and what settings to use to make truly creative photographs. You’ll be confident to make great photos naturally every time you pick up your camera.

During this course I’ll teach you the essential functions of the camera, without getting bogged down in super technical stuff. You will learn about the exposure triangle and how to set your shutter speed, aperture and ISO and how these three settings work together to create well-exposed photographs. You will learn to make well-focused photos and to control how much is in focus in your photos. You’ll learn about managing your shutter speed and how that affects the amount of blur in your shots – plus a whole lot more!

I purposefully don’t use much jargon. I speak clearly and use simple language so the course is easy to follow, especially if English is not your first language. My wife and I have taken all the photos presented in the course, rather than finding examples on the internet, so you can be confident I know what I am talking about. There  are tons of photography courses available online produced by people who are pretty good at whipping up another video course to sell, but who are not so experienced working with a camera in their hands or really teaching you how to use it well. I’ve included many demonstration videos, graphics and animations to demonstrate what I am teaching and give you a clear visual reference to the various aspects of photography covered in this course.

So, if you’ve just bought your first camera, or have had one for a while and mostly been using it on one of the auto modes, this course will teach you how to start making truly creative photographs.

I love taking photographs. I love my work. I love teaching about what I am passionate about. Please sign up for ‘Master Your Camera – Master Your Creativity’ today so you too can begin to find great enjoyment using your camera.
