About the Project
In 2010 I started a journey that lead me to quit my aerospace engineering job, go against all “practical advice”, and become full-time landscape & travel photographer.
At the start of this journey, while trying to learn the photography basics/fundamentals, I noticed that most online tutorials contained a vast number of technical errors & contradictions, leading photographers down a path of confusion & false knowledge.
Even worse, they seem to assume the average photographer is unintelligent and unable to handle technical details & thought processes. They are written as if speaking to a 5th grader. We are smarter than that!
As a scientist, teacher & full-time landscape photographer I have a responsibility change this trend.
- Nearly all of us have the ability to learn at a high level & to become expert problem solvers.
- Problem-solving is the most important skill on Earth. It’s also the number one skill required in photography.
The tutorials below teach the basic fundamentals of photography interwoven with a crash course on problem-solving and technical thinking
This is an on-going project, so make sure to check back from time to time as more tutorials are added to this page.
