Still shooting on Auto?


"What camera settings do I use?"

You've spent a load of cash on that shiny, new DSLR...

...but your photos don't magically improve.

Been there, done that.

You've got the latest, greatest camera kit, with all those bells & whistles...

...but you leave the mode dial on 'Auto'.
A wasted investment.

You spend a tonne of time traveling with your camera...

...but end up feeling disappointed with your photos.
Believe me, I know how that feels.

Truth is, most of us don't have the foggiest notion of what we are doing.
We don't know stuff, like:

n The Exposure Triangle - how aperture, shutter & ISO work together

n Depth of Field - how to get nice, blurry backgrounds

n Metering Modes - which ones to use for accurate exposures

n How to set Auto Focus Points for sharper shots

We have fluffed about on the Internet, searching for solutions to make our images shine. But it's a jungle out there. Information overload is crippling.
And life gets in the way.

You really only have two options...

OPTION 1 : Teach yourself. Waste years looking for free stuff on the Internet, or going to random photography workshops where your learning is, at best, erratic.

OPTION 2 : To save you time and frustration, I have sourced and collated the very best teaching practice from dozens of photographers world-wide, and packaged it for your convenience into one solution - at your finger tips.

Here's my answer. No magic bullet, just a proven path to success.

What others are saying...



I think this course will go a long way in helping beginners gain more confidence in their photography.


The course is a very good place for a beginner to start.

Many of the subject items have PDF files which can be printed out to help with some of the exercises. These make it much easier to follow along, help reinforce the subject taught in the videos.



I have really enjoyed the course. I like the pace of your presentation and the combo of video and pdf works well. I like the mini quizzes at the end of each session. I also like the analogies you use.
