  ON-LINE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES  

MARK'S EIGHT WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES ARE DESIGNED TO IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUE AND HELP YOU TO CREATE STRONG VISUAL IMAGES JUST LIKE THE PRO'S.

YOU CAN START AT ANY TIME!!  NO WAITING!!

    While looking at a stunning visual image, have you ever wondered "How did the photographer do that. I wish I knew the secret." In reality there are no real secrets to creating a stunning visual image.  To do so the pros use the same techniques and methods that can be learned by anyone. Like Mark's field mentored, intensive workshops and educational photo adventures, the goal of the on-line courses is provide you with an opportunity to learn new techniques and skills and help you hone your photographic vision.

COURSE FORMAT

    All the courses are comprised of stimulating weekly lessons, assignments designed to nurture your creativity, and honest constructive PERSONAL, written, critiques. In combination, they can lead you on a journey to create your own personal imagery that can be visually compelling.

LECTURES

    Each week you will be emailed a new lesson that contains lecture and discussion information and color photographs exemplifying the lesson. The weekly lesson plan is sent to you in an MS Word (.doc) format that is easily download and printed.

ASSIGNMENTS

    Along with the lecture material will come a shooting assignment which will provide an opportunity to put into practice what was contained in the lecture. The assignments are designed to provide you the direction and guidance  needed to master the topic at hand and to develop a strong compositional and aesthetic eye as you approach the creation of an image. Once you have received your lesson you are free to complete it on your own schedule though it is highly recommended that you not delay in order to maintain an active role in the course and the individual lessons build on what you learned in the earlier ones. Each lesson will require you to produce between one and four images and, when completed, are to be download via email to Mark for critiquing.

 

CRITIQUES

    Years of experience with the field-based workshops has shown that immediate and constructive feedback from a professional photographer of one's work is the best and quickest way to improve your photographic skills. It is the single most anticipated event in any of my workshops.

CREATING IMAGES FOR VISUAL IMPACT

                                   

If you are technically proficient but still find yourself saying that your images don't look anything like it did on location then you are struggling with your artistic vision. This eight week course introduces you to techniques that will help you expand your creativity and enhance the visual impact of your images. As our camera's are excellent recorders of information, artistic expression must come from within ourselves and not the camera. With this understanding, this course will spend time discussing lighting, exposure and compositional techniques than can be used so that the resulting image communicates the same vision and feelings to the views as it did to you when on location.

 

Intended for: Serious amateur and intermediate photographers who have a working knowledge of aperture and shutter speed settings. This course is designed to be taken either by advanced level photographers (intermediate level) or the completion of either the Designing Images or Photographing Flowers course.
