    Photography is for me a creative outlet in an otherwise mundane, and somewhat stressful life. I picked up a camera about 4 years ago, enrolled in a couple of classes to learn how to operate it, and then just went to it, but there is so much more I need and want to learn. At the moment my portfolio is largely comprised of live music photography, I have no studio experience at all and want to branch out to Portriats and Head Shots. When I photograph a show I take about 200 photos or more and spend a lot of time in Lightroom editing them. I would like to be able to take less photograph’s with better results straight out of the camera with only a moderate amount of time spent editing and for this I need more formal training. I mean I can wing it with the best of them, but that is no longer good enough for me, I want/need a more concise education as I am sure my work could be even better and more varied.

    In photography I follow my heart. I’m not only crazy about the wonders that the world offers, I’m also crazy to share this with everybody around. I’m good, very good, but I still have a feeling that i’m not good enough , that there is something that I can improve and hopefully you can give me an opportunity to do it. The world is too beautiful to keep everything to yourself.

    I love photography! As a nineteen year old amateur photographer I am confident that this course would bring my skill to a whole new level. I love the flexibility of the course and that I could do it as I have time around my other responsibilities. The idea of getting training from top notch professionals is exciting, and I also value the fact that you would have a mentor who would work with you and give you specific guidance and critiquing with your pictures. I appreciate that this course covers a broad spectrum of genres of photography, which would be helpful in discovering which are my favorites and ones that I should pursue further. I am sure that this course would be extremely helpful for me as I continue to pursue photography. I am so thankful for how God has provided on my photography journey so far, and I look forward to what he will do with it in the future!
