About This Class

Stocksy Photographer Kevin Russ (@kevinruss) is known for his immersive, experiential approach to photography. He's able to capture some of the most authentic and beautiful images of people he encounters and places he goes.

In this 30-minute class, you'll join Kevin in Salton Sea, California where he experiences a day in the desert with his friend Cuervo, a desert cowboy and his two mules. Kevin shares stories of his experiences taking photos on the road, sharing inspiring and insightful tips on how photography reflects your immersion in a place, and why experience is the cornerstone to your work.

Inspired by Kevin's passion for meaningful adventure and photography, you'll leave this class excited to get out and take photos of a subject and the place you experience. Share them with the class, share them on Instagram and most importantly, approach your experience with a sense of wonder.


Stocksy United is home to a curated collection of royalty-free stock photography that's beautiful, distinctive and highly usable.

Because every photo is vetted, every shot has earned a place. So, no filler, no cheesy poses...and no more hours of searching for the right image.

I`m getting ready for the photography exam and watched tonnes of videos on Skillshare to find new ideas, concepts, perspectives. This is definitely my favourite and the one I`d recommend the most!
The importance of being clear about what exactly is your motivation to take the photograph. Kevin Russ is openly honest about his intentions and the results are awesome in its simplicity.
