I've been running this 1 day photography course around Australia & New Zealand since 2009, helping several thousand people gain more enjoyment from their passion - one small group at a time. However, as we're now busier than ever running our Photography Tours, time has come to throw open the doors and let everyone enjoy it! Divided into sequential sections, each video features plenty of examples, animations and easy-to-understand explanations to guide you right through from basic camera setup and composition, to aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO, lighting, lenses, histograms, white balance and so much more! The first 5 parts are ready to watch for FREE!

The course was straight forward, well organized, and easy to follow. The concepts around beginner photography and photography lingo were explained very well. I thought it was going to be to easy, but was exactly what I needed to get started.

actually, he explained all the settings of the camera with examples right next in the video. gave very useful advise about the aperture and the shutter speed, i.e. if f/36 aperture takes time to capture the image, we can reduce time by increasing ISO that will also help to avoid shaking which leads to increasing shutter speed without changing shutter speed. Hope this helps.

I'm in Lesson 2 right now and the audio is coming through, but not the video. This makes learning extremely difficult and unpleasant. I had really high hopes for this course, but I'm left with disappointment and regret. Such a shame.

It was great! Amazingly helped me improve my photography knowledge and sort of, expanded my horizon on view of photography as more than a hobby.
