When Michael started in 2003, before the youtube age, he learned by trial and error. It took him 2 years to fully master his camera. In 2008, after many years of shooting weddings, Michael was convinced he could develop a teaching system to help new students learn their cameras over a weekend. He's been teaching new photographers ever since! Michael's unique approach focuses on simplicity, clarity, and synthesis, which has helped thousands of beginning students learn their cameras in just a few hours.
This is a relatively short course – about four and a half hours is all it takes to become a master with this camera. Lectures are 100% easy-to-follow videos, with plenty of clear diagrams that will construct your understanding of the camera dynamically.
