Welcome to Beginner's Photography Classes - the blog about everything I would learn if I was to pick up photography, today.

Hello Everyone! I'm Charlie, and I've been a professional photographer for over 10 years.

The aim of the blog is to be the center of the most helpful information, and examples I can give on photography to get you all from "P" mode to "M" mode on your dSLR in quick digestible lessons on essential photography fundamentals of the camera; interview videos with professional photographers of different styles and genres.

Just like the name, I will post lessons on photography and focus on topics that matter to  new photographers and advanced hobbyist only. For more advanced photographer, I have written notes that target the business of photography from portfolio presentation to cost-of-doing-business. Should you ever wonder if taking the traditional path in photography. Neither by taking courses at an accredited university, or make a decision to self-teach yourself. This blog aims to be the best sources of information on for you.

So why you want to learn from me?

You don't! In fact, that's what I did. I was completely self-educated, when I knew full well I wanted to be a professional photographer. Those days were still "pre-internet", and YouTube was still pumping out, almost exclusively, funny cat videos... (and pirated movies). I stress on the "Pre" because today's internet is an incredible place to learn. There are even online college degrees from accredited universities, and no it's not Phoenix.

What I want to do with this blog is to be the center of information that I needed when I was self-educating to be a professional photographer. Just enough technical stuff that get you to function well on the field, and lots and lots Shooting! When I began, a professional photographer, Derrick Gomez, said to me to "stand in front of interesting things" to take "interesting photography". And that's what I did, and that is what I urge you to do.

Gwyneth says "Do come back now!"
