We know photography courses – so we don’t get you to learn by copying.
Photography courses with Bill Bagshaw doesn’t mean how to copy me. Quite the opposite. We give you ground breaking concepts and then enable you to take ownership of them.
It’s unfortunate that many trainee photographers are led to believe copying what someone else does is going to improve their photography.
Ask yourself this question:-
If an Olympic athlete set off around a track; and told you to copy what they did; then would you be as good as them?
Clearly the answer is no. Any qualified sports coach will tell you this is not how adults learn.
There is little point in copying what someone else does; because next time it will be different; and you won’t know why it didn’t work.
Even worse; if the person you are copying learned by copying someone else; then it can be like the blind leading the blind.
