Meet Your Master

(gentle piano music) I think the great thing about photography is telling stories about humanity, about people and the planet that we live on, and then to share those stories with other people. (gentle piano music) This course isn't about how to use your camera, it's not a technical course, it's more about developing your eye. It's about finding those interesting pictures that tell great stories. (inspiring music) I like to explain a little bit about how I find these stories, and hopefully you can learn from my experience.

For me this is not a class, is more the photographer talking about his photos and his experience. It is a little repetitive but I enjoyed. From Masters of Photography I loved Joel Meyerowitz's class and I recommend it strongly. In case you need to choose.
