Take Control Of Your Camera


Improve Your Photography by learning how to use Manual Mode

This course will teach you how to switch from 'Auto' to 'Manual mode and really take control of your camera.

With over twenty online lectures, and reference documents to download, my online course will teach you how to shoot better photographs by using manual mode instead of automatic.

Incredible, concise, clear and enjoyable course.

I've taken several Udemy courses and I was stunned by how professional this course is. Besides the clear video, professional manner and great audio, Paul does a terrific job of explaining concepts clearly so they are easy to understand. I have taken photographs for years but felt like I couldn't use manual setting because whenever I tried to learn more with books and teaching videos, I was still confused. I couldn't believe it when I took this course and easily understood, for the first time, what the different concepts in photography meant. I really hope Paul produces several more courses on photography. I highly recommend this course without reservation. Thank you!

Best beginner photography course I have seen!

A great course. Paul certainly knows what he is talking about and is great at delivering it. The videos are very much "to the point" without any unnecessary yapping ;) Engaging teacher + interesting and well delivered material = Simply a great course.

Excellent overview of the mechanics of photography

I've been using SLRs for years but always been daunted by the manual mode and never got great results using it. This course has helped me to understand where I was going wrong - lots of ah ha! moments. Paul really distills the subject matter into easy to understand bite size lessons. Great course, thank you.

Awesome Course!

Paul has put together a great course here to teach you what all of those settings on your camera really do. While using auto modes create good photos, taking control yourself will create great photos! I have learned so much in this course and have seen an improvement right away! This would make a great gift with that new camera! Thanks Paul!

This is Why I Created This Course...


Paul Cooper FMPA FBIPP QEP

I remember my first camera, and how it all seemed so complicated at first...
The simple option was to switch it to 'automatic' and start shooting -
but I didn't always get the results that I wanted.

So, I read books, went on courses and practiced hard
(hey this was a long time ago... Google didn't exist!)

Eventually, I grasped the concept of manual exposure, and I really started to see my photography improve.
(It's only when you really take control of your camera, that you start to create the images that you want.)

Those valuable first lessons have always stuck with me, and without them I would never have gone on to win UK Photographer of the year twice, or to have been awarded Fellowships from both the Master Photographer's Association and the British Institute of Professional Photography.

These are CORE SKILLS that every photographer needs to know, and my aim is make this training available to as many people as possible - so they don't have to go through the steep learning curve that I did
AND spend a small fortune to acquire this valuable knowledge.

This kind of experience and knowledge,
that will stay with you for the rest of your life,
is worth thousands of £££ (I know, that's what I paid!)

So, to make it 'affordable' to everyone, I've set a price of just £29.99 for lifetime access to this course
(which seems very reasonable for something that will improve your photography massively).
