Who is this Course For?
Although the “Level 1: Photography Basics” course covers a lot of the basics for beginners, we made sure that we covered plenty of topics, some of which can be considered a bit more advanced. We wanted to cover as much information as possible to make this course a great foundation course for photographers of all levels. So whether you are an enthusiast or a professional, there is plenty of material in this video that you can hopefully not only learn from today, but also go back to when you need a refresher in the future.
We have huge plans for this project and the idea is to make a few foundation courses today, so that we can keep taking your photography training to higher levels in our future courses. Once we release our first “Level 1” videos, we will move on to more complex training material. The good news is that we won’t be repeating any of the basics in those higher tiers, so there won’t be any duplication of efforts. So the courses will follow a university-style program with a good amount of pre-requisite material that is recommended to master first before moving up to the next level.
Here is what we have in the plans today in terms of future courses:
