In this photography course, award winning photographer Anthony Carbajal and best selling online course creator Phil Ebiner team up to bring a once in a lifetime course.

Anthony was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in his mid-twenties. At the time, he was photographing 50+ weddings a year, and was one of the most sought-after photographers in Southern California.
