Do I Need Prior Experience?

No, you don’t need any prior experience.

The iPhotography Course is designed for absolute beginners and keen amateurs. The language used is designed to be simple to understand and the course interface intuitive and easy to follow with no complicated jargon.

Can I use my existing camera?

Yes! The best thing about this course is that you don’t always need to have a top-end DSLR camera.

As long as you’ve got a camera to hand then you’ll find the iPhotography Course is the perfect investment in your passion!

You see, it’s not your camera, it’s how you use it. Once you understand how a few of your camera’s features work, everything else falls into place very quickly and you’ll be taking stunning portraits and capturing beautiful memories in no time at all.

Do I Need Photoshop to Take This Course?

You do not need to purchase Photoshop or other image editing software to complete the iPhotography Course modules – but it does help. The ability to edit your images is an important part of modern photography and no photography course would be complete without covering this vital area.

During Modules 17 & 18 of the iPhotography Course, you will receive extensive step-by-step training from our Photoshop expert on how to edit your images like a professional photographer.

This training is delivered to you through a series of 20 over-the-shoulder online video tutorials. You don’t have to follow the tutorials if you don’t have Photoshop software, but you will need to understand the processes and techniques in order to complete the test at the end of the modules.

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.


The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
