What other's say about John's classes:
"This is an amazingly informative way to start or continue with photography. I've learned from scratch not only how to take pictures but the information you should have before you even start. Thanks John, for making my introduction to photography so easy to absorb!" Tanya O. [CreativeLive student]
"All the right stuff! John is the real deal. He is one of those rare few that is blessed with the gift of teaching. What makes John and his classes so worthwhile is that he's passionate about his subject matter, clearly knows his stuff, is incredibly well-prepared with his visual and supporting material, and his enthusiasm for teaching his craft comes though in a personable and approachable way. Anything by John Greengo is going to be well worth your time and money!" Joe L. [CreativeLive student]
The essential principles of photography are the most important ideas and concepts you will need for success in your photographic journey. This class will instill a deep understanding of the core concepts applicable to every genre of photography.
Not just for beginners
While this class is a great start for anyone new to photography, it is just as valuable for those that have been experimenting on their own and now want to develop a deeper understanding. Learning on your own is a great way of discovering concepts and understanding their importance. In this class John draws on his decades of education and experience to distill the important ideas into highly visual lessons that make mastering each concept fast and easy.
Furthering your photography will come in two ways: education and experience. If you want to ensure that your photographic knowledge is where it should be, this class is for you. When you are rock solid on the essential elements, you’ll be in the best position to make the most from your experiences on your own unique photographic journey.
