In this photography course, award winning photographer Anthony Carbajal and best selling online course creator Phil Ebiner team up to bring a once in a lifetime course.
Anthony was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) in his mid-twenties. At the time, he was photographing 50+ weddings a year, and was one of the most sought-after photographers in Southern California.

I can't wait to see you in class!
I'm a photographer that can't carry a camera anymore... but I'm still making it happen! Two years ago, I initially gave up my passion for photography after I was diagnosed at 26 years old with an incurable neurological disease called ALS... my mom has ALS too. We're slowly becoming completely paralyzed. Yes it sucks... this disease is stealing our strength, but not our happiness.
I missed photography so much that after the two year break I had to figure out a way to get back into it. I sat down, mounted my camera to my wheelchair and started taking pictures in my front-yard. So I kind of fell into street photography naturally (or for lack of other options) in my city Redlands, CA. I'm in love. I realized that my wheelchair destroys all social boundaries. I get to capture raw, authentic, and photojournalistic encounters in neighborhoods, streets and alleyways.
I hope those who view my work, will better understand this different perspective I'm experiencing. A perspective in which no one is intimidated by your physical appearance and eager to have a conversation with you.
We're all looking for happiness, for purpose and to overcome adversity. Underneath it all we are all the same just fighting a different battle and should not be ignored on the street or denied a simple smile.
My goal is not to create "pretty" images, but to capture a moment in time that will make you feel something... Reminding us to break down social boundaries that are prohibiting us from loving one another fully. Yes, I realize I sound like a hippy. I don't care.
If you like my work, please consider visiting my website. Any and all proceeds gained from my photography will be used towards medical expenses. Bless your heart for taking the time to read this. Your attention span is definitely longer than mine.
