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 reveal some of the myths and misconceptions about being a professional photographer and seek to gain your interest. In Part 2 of 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, and how you can make it happen in your life too!

Even if you are not interested in being a full time professional photographer, this course is full of great information about how you can earn money from your photography and make the most from your DSLR or mirrorless camera.

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 is the target audience?
  • People who enjoy photography
  • Anyone who wants to start making money with their photography
  • People who want to become professional photographers
  • Anyone who want to learn more about photography
  • People who own DSLR cameras
  • People who own mirrorless cameras

Pro Photographer, 30+ years experience,Workshop Instructor,

I am a New Zealand professional photographer and film maker based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have over 30 years experience. My background is in newspaper and commercial photography. The past 10 years I have also been producing short documentary films for non profit organizations.

My wife and I also run a photography workshop business - Chiang Mai Photo Workshops - teaching what we love to do to all levels of photographers. I have genuine, real world experience teaching, not just in creating video courses.

I am flexible to shoot in different styles and genres and am most passionate about portraits and documentary style.

I sell stock photos and video through various online agencies. The video production company I manage, Acts Multimedia, provides services for non profits at affordable rates.

I am always interested in constructive feedback and would love to know student's ideas on other photography course you would like to see me produce.
