About two years ago, I used to go about my usual everyday life like most people do, not noticing all of the beauty around me. After I picked up a camera and started taking photos of my kids, I started to see the world in a whole new way. Once you start to see it, you can’t unsee it.
I started to notice how light affected things, and how looking at something from a different perspective could change the whole scene. The whole world seems to be trying to tell us a story in the most beautiful and colorful display. It’s like watching a movie, but it’s all around us, and we’re living it.
After becoming a photographer, I slowed down from this crazy fast paced world and started to appreciate the masterpieces that were before my very eyes. This was a life changing experience for me!
I want everyone to have this same experience. So I created a free photography course for anyone who wants to give it a shot. I show you how you can do this with a cheap camera and cheap lens. I’ve even used my cell phone when I didn’t have my camera with me.
