Camera Equipment – the person behind the camera counts

 

The person behind the camera equipment counts, not the camera.

Camera equipment isn’t everything.   Buying the latest gear doesn’t make you a good photographer

All too often I  come across photographers who bought the very latest, expensive camera gear. They think this will make them a great photographer.  It won’t.

It can’t be over emphasised.   The person behind the camera counts, not the camera equipment.

See  our photography courses

Photography is visual communication.     A camera is just a dumb machine.

Firstly the photographer needs to know how to use their camera equipment.  Knowing how your camera works doesn’t make you a good photographer.  Learning how to communicate visually does.

Bill Bagshaw specialises in teaching visual communication skills.

Anyone can show you basics of how a camera works.   Often all that does is to confuse people.  Sometimes it’s like the blind leading the blind.

Knowing how your camera works is no good if you don’t know what those settings achieve.  But that’s just the starting point.

We explain things so you really understand.    Actually we teach you what most photographers don’t even know !

Photography by Bill Bagshaw photography courses

Photography is visual communication.     We are not just born as great photographers.      We need to develop our skills.

Buying a posh camera is just buying a posh tool kit.

Knowing how your camera works is just the starting point to learning photography.

Bill Bagshaw photography courses teach you what other courses don’t.

Communication is all.   We communicate in many ways in photography.   Fortunately Bill can teach you those skills.
