PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE IN DURBAN
LEARN HOW TO CONFIDENTLY SHOOT & EDIT PHOTOS WITH PROFESSIONAL RESULTS
( Without camera confusion, photoshop phobia or artistic anxiety )
ONE IMPORTANT QUESTION
For those with a passion or business need for photography but STILL don’t have the skills to shoot and edit pro-level photos :
If there was practical, step-by-step method that enabled you produce high-quality photos without being overwhelmed by all the buttons and dials on your camera, or the tools and sliders in editing software,
Would you finally feel confident enough to get the photography skills you need ?
of “would-be photographers” purchase expensive cameras but only use them in auto-mode or give up on photography entirely.
After buying an expensive DSLR camera, most people watch a few youtube videos where some expert makes it all look and sound so easy. Giddy with inspiration and excitement, they try it out “exactly like in the video ” only to find that their photos are dark, blurry and look terrible compared to the pics their phone is producing.
What happened ?
What am I doing wrong?
Why do I suck at photography ?
They look for answers online only to be further confused by terms like f-stops, spot metering and crop factor. Doubt and disappointment seep in leading to “Maybe photography isn’t for me .”
The camera ends up on Gumtree for less than half it’s worth.
3 REASONS WHY PEOPLE FAIL AT PHOTOGRAPHY
(and how to ensure you don't)
Taking great photos isn’t particularly hard or complicated once you understand the key principles of photography, how they related to one another and how they affect camera settings.
Most people look for a “quick fix” by hacking together tips and tricks from youtube instead of following a systematic program that builds your understanding and skills with a step-by-step process..
Photography competency can easily acquired if you follow a structured course that builds your knowledge step-by-step so that you know what to do in any situation you may encounter as a photographer.
One of the biggest problems with learning photography on your own is that there is no one there to answer your questions, help you overcome technical issues and develop your creativity.
These stumbling blocks can quickly become brick walls as they kill your motivation and interest by making photography seem so difficult.
To learn photography quickly, and with as little confusion and anxiety as possible, you need an experienced instructor to guide you, correct you and motivate you when you run into difficulties.
Without a community of like-minded individuals who have a common goal of becoming better photographers it’s easy to lose motivation and stagnate.
What’s needed is community of instructors and previous students who offer technical and moral to support each other, give and receive constructive criticism, and challenge each other to be better.

SO LET'S SHIFT FOCUS...
Even though it’s easy enough to buy a camera, it takes a little more time and effort to gain the skills to become a true photographer. This is something the 76% don’t have the will to do.
As long as you approach learning photography the right way you can easily gain the knowledge and confidence to become a pro, and generate income doing what you love
With your permission, that’s exactly what we can show you how to do.
