Like you, I love taking pictures. I love the feeling I get when I find that perfect moment and am able to freeze it forever. After all, pictures aren’t something you just take with your phone — they are moments that moved you to yearn to capture them. I’ve always been drawn to that power.
But how many times do you think, “I wish my pictures were better!”?
I hear a lot of from travelers who desire to better capture these special moments on the road.
And many people don’t even take photos because they aren’t confident in their ability to snap that “perfect picture.”
My name is Nomadic Matt and I’m founder of the #1 travel blog NomadicMatt.com and the online media school Superstar Blogging. Despite traveling and blogging for eight years, I had never thought much about one of the most important and fun aspects of travel: photography.
That is, until I met Laurence Norah. Laurence is a professional travel photographer who taught me a few tricks that dramatically improved my photography.
We worked together to create a course for others in the same boat — people like YOU who want to take better photos but think they need a fancy, expensive camera (you don’t!), understand complex editing software, or get scared off by the technical aspects of photography. People who don’t want to make a living doing so but still want to get the perfect shot without having to take a million photos to do so!
So we created “Capture the World: A Guide to Travel Photography” to help you take better pictures when you travel.
Laurence — a lovely British chap — has been a professional photographer for six years and has been holding a camera for more than twenty! He’s widely considered one of the top travel photographers in the online space, and his work has appeared in magazines and news sites all over, including:
Each year, he leads intensive photowalks around the world to help people take better pictures – on and off the road.
But, as he told me, “I want a better way to share my knowledge. I want a way to give people around the world access to a robust and affordable photography course and make all of my knowledge available to anyone who is willing to invest in learning the art of photography.”
Think of how you feel when you look a beautiful photograph. That sense of wonder, that feeling of awe. You imagine yourself there. It’s feeling of that inspires.
There’s nothing better than looking at a photo and realizing you took that beautiful image that freezes that magical moment perfectly.
Taking beautiful photos and being able to feel that about your photos isn’t as hard as you think. It doesn’t require buying expensive equipment, fancy studios, or high-tech editing software. All you need is dedication and some simple concepts to you improve your photography right away.
This course contains everything Laurence has learned about photography since he picked up a camera over 20 years ago. We put everything you’ll ever need to know about photography into one place. The course is packed with examples, images, and videos, making what can seem like a complex subject easy to understand.
