What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Phil and I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular video and photography courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like this:

Thank you for your wide teaching lesson on photography. I learned about so many aspects on the topic. I now tried to correct my works with lightroom (which I had before) adopting your advise on tools in it. I was really happy about the result. Thank you and see you next time! - Pamela Elfman

There was a lot of information on photoshop and Lightroom that helped me with the post-processing of photos. Phil's own photos are beautiful examples of what can be achieved. I would have liked more information on the camera settings used for each photo. I learned a lot during this course as I'm only a beginner. - Anne Deans

A very informative course that was interesting to watch and learn. I was particularly fascinated by the Adobe Lightroom section of this tutorial on how bland photographs can be greatly enhanced, once you understand the concepts of highlights, shadows and colour in photography. - Ian Walker

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
