Corey Reese Celebrity Photographer & Cinematographer


One of Udemy's Fastest Growing New Instructor

Corey started creating Photography Tutorials on YouTube back in 2011 where up & coming photographers immediately gravitated to his teaching style with well over 350,995 video views. In a world where camera techniques can seem so complex, Corey's method of teaching not only breaks down the camera in simple bit size pieces, but helps photographers understand how they can apply the concepts real time to improve their work.

"I used to sit and stare at my camera hoping it would whisper these things, thanks Corey you did it." Catlyn Watson

Understanding the need to give back to the next generation of talent, Corey continued his training success partnering with Udemy in July 2015 where over 18,000 happy students are now enrolled in Corey's courses learning photography on the platform. Corey's goal is to teach upcoming students everything he has learned along the way.

"I´m a beginner in the photography world and understanding the jargon and how to use the functions was extremely simple to understand with this tutorial! Thanks Corey! Omar Cabrera Sánchez
