"I spent all this money on camera gear, why aren't I taking better photos?"

It isn't all about the gear! But knowing what you don't know will improve your skills quickly. You don't need to wait years to improve, our course will teach you the skills you need without a lot of scary technical terminology and have you taking better photos in no time.

Meet Gary Arndt

Gary sold his home and began to travel full time a little over 12 years ago. He knew absolutely nothing about photography and he purchased an expensive camera on the assumption that it would take better photos.

Just two weeks into his around the world trip in Hawaii and he could tell that his photos were terrible. That fancy camera wasn’t taking good photos. Once he recognized his skills needed to improve, he began to slowly teach himself about photography and how to become a better photographer. It took many years and taking 100,000’s of photos around the world.

Over the course of those travels, he also noticed that most people really had no idea how to use their own expensive cameras, and would often buy "better" expensive camera gear mistakenly thinking that would help their photography skills.

He decided to offer his knowledge as a true solution and teacher others what he taught himself over the last 12 years.

Master your camera. Improve your skill.

It's a pretty straightforward concept. When you understand how your camera works, which results you'll get with the settings you choose, and build on that knowledge, you will take better photographs.

It seems like you have a long way to go, but it's really that simple. And our course will help get you there even more quickly.

While the course is self-paced, you can learn as little or as much as you would like in whatever time frame you choose while gaining the support of your peers through the private Facebook Group.

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Gary Arndt is articulate, knowledge, and does a great job of demonstrating the practical application of the theories he teaches. The personal critiques are especially helpful - where else are you going to get specific feedback from a professional in the travel photography field? I highly recommend this class!"

"I've been working my way through the course, even as someone who works with Gary daily and I'm learning the basics of things I should have known before picking up a camera, which are now accelerating my skill quickly as a result."
