About This Class

If you love the outdoors and photography, then you are in the right place.  

Welcome to The Ultimate Guide to Landscape and Nature Photography.

In this course, you will learn the key ingredients to creating amazing landscape and nature photos. I will show you the gear best suited for landscape photography, how to obtain a perfect exposure, how to develop your ‘Eye’ to see striking compositions, and how to ‘see’ the light.

Join me as I share 35 years of landscape photography from across America. We’ll look at how to photograph mountains, rivers, the desert, sunsets and sunrises, forests, all 4 seasons, and much, much more.

In this course you will learn:

  • Everything you need to know regarding gear for landscape photography
  • How to master exposure settings
  • Understanding the exposure triangle
  • Strategies for stunning compositions
  • Determining the best light for a subject
  • And how to make the image ‘pop’ with processing

Why learn from me?

I will share the same techniques I used to create landscape photographs that have appeared in over 500 calendars, hundreds of magazines, advertisements, web uses, books, and more. I have photographed in every state in the lower 48 of the U.S. and will demonstrate the necessary techniques to create stunning photographs. I will show you how I created quality photography that has gotten me published in National Geographic, Outside, Sports Illustrated, Backpacker, Snow Country, Outdoor Photographer, and many more.

Wait, there’s more…..

Also included, are multiple lectures all captured while photographing in the wild. They are called Field Trips and are designed to demonstrate important techniques included in the course lectures. I’ll take you with me as I explore and employ a variety of approaches for creating great photographs while in the field.

There are bonus lectures as well.

Having traveled the entire U.S. photographing, I certainly have my share of favorite places and that is what these bonus lectures are all about. I will show you not only the photographs I captured but where to find those locations and in many cases, including the directions to get there and/or GPS coordinates. In some cases, other information is included such as when to go, the best time of day, and even technical details will be included.

Are you ready to create stunning nature photography?

Then join me in this online adventure and in no time, you will gain a better understanding of how to create great landscape photographs. And in case you did not know, there is a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee.

I look forward to seeing you in class.

Charlie
