Nick Kelsh’s Basic Photography Course is structured into four modules, presented either weekly over 4 weeks in the full participation course, or self-paced according to your own schedule in our self-study course. Each lesson introduces new goals and video tutorials, additional reading, a quiz, a photo assignment and discussion topics.
Watch the videos and review material in your own time; then take the quiz to test your comprehension of the material. There’s no pressure—only you will see your score. Nick provides a video review of the questions, explaining the right and wrong answers.
Put the lessons to practice with the photography assignments and upload your pictures to the online student photo gallery. Your classmates can offer constructive feedback and you will gain a lot from evaluating other students’ photographs and comments. Learn from your fellow students by participating in the discussion forums as well. When you purchase the full participation course, you receive the benefit of personal feedback from Nick on all the photos you post, enabling you to improve with every photo you take.
Nick hosts online Q&A webinars to give you additional review or explanation of challenging topics. Webinars are offered at varying times to accommodate a range of time zones and schedules. Don’t worry if you can’t make the live webinars, you can always watch the recording at your convenience.
We know that you will want to review parts of the course as your skills improve, so all course materials are archived and you’ll have complete access to the course website and community for one year if you’re a self-paced student, and three years if you are a full participation student.
By the end of this course, you’ll have the technical know-how, tips & tricks of the trade and the confidence to capture the precious moments in your life with photographs you’ll be proud of and others will rave about! It’s a truly rewarding gift to yourself, to your family and friends, and to future generations who’ll cherish the beautiful photographs you’ll create.
