Here's the subscription form.
On this page I will explain first what distinguishes this course from other courses. You can then judge for yourself whether this concept is right for you. Then I will tell you how you can participate.
What makes this course different from the many other photography courses is the combination in each episode of:
- an inspiring introduction to the history of photography told from the viewpoint of the first photographers
- reflections on creativity, the theory of photography and how images work
- inspirational examples of current creative photographers
- monthly assignments with a personal review
