About This Class

Veteran Patagonia photographer Jeff Johnson is a surfer, climber, adventurer, and all-around outdoorsman who captures extreme experiences through incredible photographs. In this 40-minute class, Jeff shares his technique for capturing key “in-between” moments: the smaller, quieter, beautiful moments that make a great adventure like climbing, surfing, or cliff-hanging into a truly human adventure. Throughout the class, Jeff also shares his best photography practices for being prepared, capturing action, and conveying passion in your images. By the end, you’ll be both inspired and empowered to get out, experience the world, and photograph it from your unique perspective.

Took me a long time to figure out what is the style of photography that I want to do, and documentary/adventure/lifestyle is the closest one to my heart. Jeff has some really useful tips here, has a great talk about what this photography is actually about and also is really inspiring.
Extremely Informative, inspirational and beautiful. ...The only drawback of this class is makes me realise how boring my life is. :D It does makes me want to make it better though, so thank you for this!
