About This Class

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 introductory course I reveal some of the myths and misconceptions about being a professional photographer and seek to gain your interest. It is not designed to provide comprehensive answers to the questions. 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.

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.
