Your Curriculum

  1. 01

    Brush up on the fundamentals.

    Week one will focus on shoot planning and gear. In a Live session and exclusive video content, Brandon will give insight into what he uses, what he’s upgraded, and what he no longer bothers with. You’ll plan and execute your own shoot, whether with your iPhone or a DSLR or anything in between.

  2. 02

    Explore more advanced techniques.

    In week two, your exclusive video content is all about props: what to use, how to use it, and where to find it. You’ll take a look at your series concept again and make selects to enhance it, reflecting on your shoot and making note of what you’d like to do differently next time. You’ll learn from Brandon in a live work-along, where you’ll make your selects while you ask questions and chat with the group.

  3. 03

    Dive into editing.

    In week three we’ll hop into Photoshop and start editing. In this week’s exclusive video content, Brandon will show you how to remove things from a frame. In the live session, he will demonstrate his updated editing process. And by the end of the week, you’ll have at least half of your series completed for Brandon’s feedback.

  4. 04

    See it all come to life.

    Enjoy a project deep dive with never-before-seen behind-the-scenes details about some of Brandon’s most popular work, and join a live session about letting yourself grow as an artist. You’ll finish up your series and get a final round of feedback.

"Brandon is my favorite photographer. He thinks outside the box and is generous in sharing all his techniques with students."
