Description

If you want to be a professional photographer, or even just start selling some of your photos, this course will help you get off to a great start.

I'm sharing knowledge and experience I have gained through nearly 30 years as a professional photographer. You can learn how you can enjoy this lifestyle too.

In this course I discuss some of the things of learned about being a professional photographer over the past three decades. It is not designed to provide comprehensive answers to all the questions, that will take your own experience, but I will give you what you need to get started well. In Part 1 of this course I looked at some of the myths and misconceptions about being a professional photographer and in this course I dig deeper and provide more insight as to how I have managed to work in the profession I love and am passionate about - photography.

The text based lessons can be viewed and/or downloaded as PDF files. These lessons contain further teaching that IS NOT included in the videos, so please do take a look at them all!

I won't waste your time. This course is presented in a concise manner. We live busy lives and personally I prefer a course of teaching which is focused and clear to the points being made, rather one that contains little useful information padded out to make the course seem of greater value than it really is.

Who this course is for:
  • Students who have taken Part 1 of this course
  • Anyone who wants to start making money with their photography
  • People who enjoy photography
  • People who want to become professional photographers
  • Anyone who want to learn more about photography in general
