Camera Basics Virtual Crash Course | You Can Attend From Anywhere Around The World.

About this Event

After attending the Camera Basics Virtual Crash Course you will never look at camera's the same.

Have you ever missed the opportunity to take the perfect picture? You saw it or anticipated what was about to happen, grabbed your camera, pushed the shutter button and felt immediately disappointed because the image came out blurry, lacked symmetry or simply was too dark to be shown?

You go into the menu setting to attempt to make adjustments and the image gets worst. To make matters worse you don't know how to troubleshoot or fix the problem.

Trust me, it has happens to the best of us.

The good news is that this is an easy fix once you know the basics of the camera and photography.

Here are the two BIG problems.

Photography is one the one of the most deceptive skills in the world. What you see is NOT what you get. It actually the exact opposite, what you see you MUST adjust the camera to make it capture what you want it to create.

The other half of the coin is that our mobile devices has made us feel invincible and damn near unstoppable when it comes to taking pictures because they have removed all of the thinking because of the automatic settings pre programed in your camera.

This means all you have to do is point and shoot.


What many of my students have shared with me is that this works 99% of time until you need it the most. In other words when it counts the most, the automatic setting will be able to capture what you see.

What they didn't tell you is that the pre-programmed setting in your camera will not be able to perform in all scenarios.

This is the reason why you need to learn the basics so that you have full creative control on how your images come out and not solely depending on the automatic settings in your phone, point and shoot, mirrorless or dslr.


I have put together one of the most comprehensive workshops on camera basics in the country.

In this class you will learn.

  • camera types
  • lens selection
  • focus - How to capture tack sharp images
  • composition
  • angles
  • timing
  • editing

After attending the photography basics workshop, you will know the following.

- How to confidently adjust your camera while on manual settings to capture the image that you see in your minds eye.

- How to select the best the best camera to purchase and why your cell phone may not be the best choice for all shooting scenarios.

- Secrets pro photographers use to get tack sharp images without purchasing expensive equipment

- A sneaky technique that will help you to get perfect angles in any shooting scenario.

- My personal favorite strategy to capturing those perfect candid moments that take your breath away.


Cameras are becoming more and more simplified to use, camera manufacturers have done a great marketing job of convincing you that all you have to do is point and shoot and, by the end of the class you will know exactly why this mindset is bogus.


If you attend the full course and at the end you don't feel you got your money's worth. I will give you a 100% refund. No questions asked.
