What is this course about?
Any Photographer that would like to sell their pictures online soon finds out that not only are there quite a few prepackaged services available, but that most of them are not quite the complete package and they can be fairly expensive to operate. They are either missing the eCommerce/Sales functionality, or that is all they have and they are missing the general website pages your business also needs. Not having a big budget to pay for development or the skills to build their own solution many Photographers end up with only a partial/incomplete solution.
This course not only solves this problem but it will also help you maximize your profits.
I have been selling my work online since 2007 and have tried all of the products on the market and will show you the easiest, most cost effective solution available. No coding is required, we use only drag and drop functions and there are not any out of pocket costs – yes you will be able to build and have your business up and running for free and in less than 90 minutes!

I have been living and breathing HDR Photography since 2007!
Photography has been a passion for over 40 years, since the age of 13 when I taught myself photography, darkroom processing and built my first enlarger with a handsaw, scrap plywood and a light bulb borrowed from the living room.
I had a second awakening with the discovery of the High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging late in 2007 where with a good set of images, the results can be truly spectacular and this has been my workflow for the last 9 years. Beyond just trying to frame a good image, the process is a much more intimate involvement with the creation of art, and a new cycle of creative development continues to evolve for me.
From Nature, to Cars and Bikes my work has been very successful, from being featured as an EasyRiders and V-Twin magazines motorcycle artist for the year to a Top Ten finalist in the Nature Conservancy’s first ever digital photography contest.
Taking pride in, and being able to produce quality images with point and shoot cameras also resulted in my work published along with Trey Ratcliff in Ferrell McCollough’s awesome book "The Complete Guide to High Dynamic Range Digital Photography" in 2008.
I have been involved in training since 1986 when I was trained by the US Navy in Curriculum Development and Instructional technologies and since then have given live presentations to over 36,000 students.
