"This class was above and beyond what I felt I signed up for. There is so much great information within this course and the structure of the course really allows you to learn the information. Having John individually grade assignments and give you feedback was a major help and also really motivated me to keep doing more lessons and show that I was learning the information. I am a beginner and learned so much through this course. I would highly recommend it to anyone learning a new Fujifilm camera or photography in general. In just a few weeks I have far more of an understanding that I would have just doing free YouTube videos, etc. It is well worth it!" - Alaina B

Course curriculum

Your instructor

I have a unique background in education that started in the U.S. Air Force where I was an F-15E flight instructor for ten years and wrote F-15E training curricula. I continued to teach helicopter lessons after transitioning to civilian life.
But I soon discovered my passion was telling stories through photography. I'm now an accredited associate photographer with Photographers Without Borders and have worked on documentary projects around the world, and have also taught photography on three continents. I've been a professional photographer for nearly ten years, having been published in places like New York Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Tahoe Quarterly, and National Geographic Online. Photography is a joy that everyone should have access to, and I'd like to pass it on to you also!
