I've been running this 1 day photography course around Australia & New Zealand since 2009, helping several thousand people gain more enjoyment from their passion - one small group at a time. However, as we're now busier than ever running our Photography Tours, time has come to throw open the doors and let everyone enjoy it! Divided into sequential sections, each video features plenty of examples, animations and easy-to-understand explanations to guide you right through from basic camera setup and composition, to aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO, lighting, lenses, histograms, white balance and so much more! The first 5 parts are ready to watch for FREE!
Usually $480 for the day, award-winning Australian Geographic photographer Chris Bray's popular photography course is now online! Check out ChrisBrayPhotography.com to see all the videos and to buy the 'Course Notes' handbook that goes with this course.
