Learn Photography



Photography is one of the most engaging activities, for both the mind and the soul, that one can pursue.

Learning photography can be a real challenge, it has many difficult and unusual concepts which can intimidate new photographers.

Classes with John Greengo are a great way to learn photography. Besides being a great teacher, John uses a uniquely highly visual presentation. Photography is, by its very nature, visual, so why not embrace this fact and teach in a visual style.

John's unique visual presentations are among the best that have ever been used for teaching photography. By using a mix of illustrations, animations and high quality photographs, then putting it all together with the latest technology, the most difficult concepts become easy to grasp.
