Master the Art of Photography

Today, there are photography courses everywhere, but none like this one with such in-depth tutorials on subjects that many photography educators don’t understand. If your desire is to start a photography business or just enjoy photography, this course is loaded with insight from a photographer who has worked in the profession for 35+ years.

While many of these tutorials were filmed as the photo session occurred, some couldn’t be filmed and are illustrated with 3D lighting diagrams, so you know exactly what light was used, where it was positioned, and the lighting effect that was created.

In this course you will learn:

· How to fully master your camera, lenses, and accessories

· How to master photography fundamentals: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, menus, and more

· How to master creative strobe lighting for all your subjects

· How to photograph portraits, places, architecture, corporations, products, and more

Learn about clients, portfolios, marketing, and making money.

This photography course has all the tools you need to meet the demands photographers experience every day. But what makes this program uniquely different is that many of the photo examples used in the course are from real-world photoshoots, on real assignments, and photographed for real clients.

Who’s the Instructor?

There are many courses on how to be an amazing photographer, but how many are taught by professionals who have decades-long careers working as a photographer?

I was formally trained at Brooks Institute in the 1980s and have worked every day since. I have photographed for Fortune 500 companies, been published in countless magazines (YES, you’ve heard of many), had over 1000 pictures in calendars, and photographed Hollywood actors, pro athletes, politicians, hotels, well-known products, real estate, and more people, places, and things than I can recall.

I have taught photo workshops across the USA and the Middle East. Founded two stock photo agencies and sold thousands of my own stock photos. I love to teach and want to ensure you succeed and love photography as much as I do.

You can trust me to teach you photography!

And this is important: You get full unlimited access to this course forever including all future video lectures! 
And in case you did not know, Udemy has an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee and it is not your standard guarantee. It’s my promise to you that you will have the needed information to succeed as a photographer.

I’ve spent countless hours scouring through YouTube videos only to learn some of what the first few videos of this course covers. 5 stars!! Nicholas A.

This has been one of the best photography courses I have taken. There is about 50 hours of content and they are all relevant. Guy A.

Charlie, I would like to thank you for sharing your expertise with me throughout this course. When I finish a photoshoot or finish retouching a photo in Photoshop, I am amazed at how much I have learned. A year ago I could not have imagined that I would have experienced so much. 

Best regards, 


I asked my friend Sarah to model for me to practice my lighting. The gym she goes to saw the pictures and asked me to shoot one for an ad, which is a before and after-shot of Sarah. If I hadn’t taken this course, I would have never had this opportunity! Thanks, Charlie!      Karen B. (Canada)

Charlie, Thanks for your support, this was a great course! Being really honest, it’s my biggest dream to open my own studio. Now, I have to still learn, but I’m looking for possibilities for doing it. Mostly I’m interested in creating shots of people or models. Once more, thanks for your course.

Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
