Introducing Live On-line Photography Lessons

Live (on-line) Photo Lessons

Learn any photography skill quickly from a Pro

You will get better photos. I promise

My name is Greg Johnson and I have made my living for the past 20 years as a photographer. I was an early adopter of digital camera technology, however my real art is in the sharing of my knowledge with others. Over the past 15 years I have taught thousands of people how to use a camera. As a professional photographer I value time and simplicity. Camera Easy is my philosophy.

A complete guide to understanding your camera

The basics

How do on-line lessons work?

  • Use your own computer and work wherever you like
  • There will be a maximum of 5 guests in each session
  • Simply click the link and join the conversation.
  • You need a computer with a camera, mic and speakers
  • You will receive a login link 15 minutes prior to lesson

How often

How many sessions are offered?

At the moment, I will be offering 3 sessions every day. Two in the afternoon and one in the evening. Each will be roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour in length. As sessions fill up, I will continue to add until I have reached my capacity! I have also consulted with some special guest photographers to share their lessons on specific types of photography, but more to come on that later.

I want to learn to edit

What about editing?

Almost half of all the lessons offered wil be in the world of editing. You and I will both be able to share our screens and I will be able to help you solve common issues with editing. And the best part is that we can do it in real time.

Check out before and after slide below. I will show you how to get these results for yourself.
