I have been published in countless magazines (you’ve no doubt heard of), calendars, outdoor product manufacturers, and had my outdoor images used thousands of times.

Read what they are saying:
I am an amateur photographer and have been taking landscape photographs during hiking trips for the past 7 years. Coming into this course, I had a basic understanding of landscape photography but relied much of the time on intuition rather than a technique to compose and frame my photos. Sometimes this worked well, other times, less so. This course really helped to give me a much more solid foundation in landscape photography. In particular, it gave me a fresh awareness of how to look at a beautiful scene and identify various ways to capture that beauty in a photograph. Charlie Borland presents each topic in an easy to understand, practical way that I found engaging and easy to follow. The course is comprehensive and well structured and the topics are well thought out and to the point. Charlie's been a landscape photographer for a long time and that came through in his presentations. No hype, just good information, and inspiration. No course can ever cover everything, but I'm glad I chose this course as my first photography course with Udemy. It's re-ignited my interest in photography and helped me to think about where I might go next. Thank you, Charlie!
I've taken a number of Borland's classes, so when I saw he was offering a class in Landscape and Nature Photography, I signed up. His classes are always very clear and concise. He has a knack for making complex topics understandable. And all his classes always are full of his beautiful pictures. This class is no exception. It is packed with critical information that is crucial for the beginning photographer to understand but also an important review for the more experienced and knowledgeable photographer. This is a class that every photographer starting out should take.......
