Hello Dan. I just finished watching Episode 7

Daren Wilz

I'd like to start off by saying that your POTB video lessons really light a fire in me. They always are very interesting and I always feel compelled to share my opinion about something. :)

I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to gain further insights into photography.

Scott Anderson

Not just another course on photography, "Photography on the Brain" gives insights into why we should try different approaches in order to become better photographers. For example rather than simply describe what a wide angle lens is, Dan talks about how it can affect you compositional style and how you can use it to your advantage in certain situations.

Your advice really resonated and gave me more confidence!

Kathryn Hamilton

Watching your lessons certainly enthused me get out with my camera more. The lessons are a good length, easily absorbed and not too long to replay for a recap - and certainly not intimidating for a beginner such as myself.

Explore Photography in a Whole New Way

in this 20-Lesson Bundle!

In this series of 20 focused video lessons, we'll explore photography with a wide range of topics that challenge you to think about photography in a whole new way.

Drawing on my 25+ years of experience, these short, concise lessons, about 10 minutes each, are designed to inspire, get you thinking more deeply about aspects like creativity, approach, method, technique, composition and vision, and motivate you to try and apply these concepts to your own image making.

With each lesson, I’ll talk to you directly, as if I were right there in the room with you. I'll expand on each topic with deep and personal insight, and show you image examples to illustrate. This will allow a unique learning experience for you, because you’ll get a very personal and in-depth style of instruction from me.

Photography is a very brain influenced activity. From the decisions you make that go into creating your images, to the emotional response your photos can invoke, great imagery begins and ends in the mind, and it utilizes both left and right brain components.

The more thought and skills you put into the process, the more ideas you’ll come up with, the more confident you’ll be with your creative and technical problem solving abilities.

You’ll be better able to develop a style that continues to evolve and excite you year after year. 

In these lessons, I’m going to share with you the very ideas that continue to drive my own fascination and enthusiasm for photography, and help you expand your own individual and personal approach to the image making process.


what you get

Here’s what you’ll get in PHOTOGRAPHY ON THE BRAIN!

As a 25+ year professional photographer, instructor, author and top rated photography blogger, I posses a wealth of photography knowledge and extensive experience shooting in all conditions. You'll get a huge amount of insight and inspiration, all presented in a unique way, because it's coming directly from my own brain!


In each ten-minute video lesson tutorial, I will explore a specific concept or aspect of photography in an intelligent, thought-provoking way. 

I'll even show you image examples to illustrate the ideas I'm talking about. 

You can watch each lesson right in your browser on any device, or you can download them to watch later.

You'll even have unlimited access to the video lessons, so you can always go back and watch them again.


These lessons are born from the very ideas that continue to fascinate and intrigue me about photography.

Topics I'll cover will include various aspects of creativity, composition, seeing, vision, using color, shooting efficiently, using lenses, staying motivated, developing a personal style, and methods that help you improve your technique.

Watch this tutorial to see an example of my  video teaching style.


At the end of each lesson, I'll leave you with a specific challenge that will encourage you try and apply these ideas in your own photography over the next 30 days.

You may find that the approach is not always obvious, and that's the point.

My goal is to get you thinking more deeply about photography and creativity. I want you to make a conscious choice about how to apply these ideas to your own image making. 

In time, these ideas will work themselves into your own style.

About Dan Bailey

With over 25 years experience as a professional outdoor shooter, instructor and writer, I have high level of mastery with photography and a unique, inspirational teaching style. 

My ideas are based on giving students a mix of mentally engaging ideas that help expand creativity, and real-world methods that allow them to maximize their skills and confidence, while liberating them from the bounds of what they often think they're "supposed to do" in order to be good photographers.

The methods I teach are based on my own experience with equipment, technique and an approach that has allowed me to create highly successful imagery that has been used by top clients throughout my entire career. In addition, I've been able to discover and enjoy photography in an intensely and liberating way that offers me a high degree of creative fulfillment and continued excitement.

As an accomplished workshop leader, successful author and a Top 100 photography blogger, I have inspired thousands of people with my expert knowledge, my honest, down-to-earth approach, and my infectious, energetic attitude towards life and photography.

Now let me help you.

Your stuff on the web is really inspiring.

Morten Larsen

You have this great ability to make things easy to understand. Especially your brilliant e-book "X-series unlimited" have been very useful and motivating in understanding, exploring and be able to get the most out of my XT-2.

I see you as a Giver, and it is very inspiring to have the possibility to learn the best tips and tricks from an outstanding photographer. Keep up the good work!

Dan wants his photography to allow the viewer "to become immersed in the action".


I have found his teaching style to do the same. He is able to share his knowledge of photography in a clear and uncomplicated way that is both inspiring and enjoyable.

What a great opportunity to learn

Patrick McGownd

After leaving film photography 25 years ago, Dan has brought me into digital photography and has always encouraged me. He will ask what I am shooting, make a positive comment and then a suggestion that I might try.

Dan Bailey’s knowledge of outdoor photography is as good as it gets!

Janel Brown

His enthusiasm and passion for making images is unparalleled. He simplifies what could be complex, and imparts a vision that inspires one to get out and shoot. Dan is approachable and responsive to any questions one might have. I have had the pleasure of attending workshops and presentations with Dan, and he personifies talent, integrity and expertise and caring. Plus, he is FUN!

I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to gain further insights into photography.

Scott Anderson

Not just another course on photography, "Photography on the Brain" gives insights into why we should try different approaches in order to become better photographers. For example rather than simply describe what a wide angle lens is, Dan talks about how it can affect you compositional style and how you can use it to your advantage in certain situations.

Dan’s passion for photography is infectious and motivational

Roger Sinclair

Dan's dynamic teaching approach is based on liberating people from the hugely technical side, instead emphasising the ‘get out there and give it a go’ method. He has remarkable ability to break down analysis and learning into bite-size chunks that give you the confidence to try.

Many would-be teachers get bogged down in what they regard as essential details before suggesting taking a photo, by which time the student’s mind is not on the photo, but the camera.

Obviously with Dan’s experiential learning approach, every student is allowed to start at their own beginning.

Dan is very generous not only with his time but his knowledge and experiences. He is not a pixel-peeper, he views cameras as tools, not subjects for constant comparison, and his primary aim is to get the highest quality picture in the simplest way and to share his knowledge with everyone who is interested.

Your advice has inspired me to try new things

Nicolaas Strik

I consider myself an advanced amateur and my interests range from macro/close-up of flowers and plants, to landscapes. Dan Bailey provides great advice that will help you get to the next level.

I have signed up and viewed the first lesson and found it helpful! 



I look at your web site at least every week.

Andrew Leask

You are in my top 4 camera web sites. I have recommended you to friends who have enjoyed your blog even more than me.

Composition is not a natural gift of mine, but your work has challenged and inspired me, and I think I'm getting better. Crazy inspiration! Sound practical advice. Objective analysis. Helpful.

I would like to thank you taking the time to look at and comment on my two recent photo submissions to photography on the brain group on Flickr.

Daren Wilz

I am really liking those comments! They have helped fuel my excitement for photography.

You can't really be a follower without being enthused by your enthusiasm for photography

Mark Tozer

For me it's helped me just get out and do it, no matter what the weather.

I recently sent an email regarding tips in using wide angle lenses and must admit quick surprise it was actually YOU responding and not perhaps a staff assistant. This has spurred me "onward" to enjoy, learn, do my best and enjoy, enjoy and again enjoy while I am able.

I’m sure that experiencing Dan’s energy and enthusiasm in this medium will add another dimension to the learning, encouraging one’s creative breakthroughs. I’ll certainly be joining that subscriber list.

Michael Fisher

Dan is a professional shooter, teacher and blogger with a passion for sharing his experience and insights with others. He has an easy, relaxed style of communication, making it enjoyable to read or listen to his insight.

I recently listened to an hour-long podcast interview with Dan. I was so taken with his knowledge and passion for photography that I wrote to tell him how inspiring I found it. He wrote back immediately thanking me and told me he is planning a monthly video-style blog series for subscribers that will provide personal instruction and inspiration.

Dan is a wonderful teacher who sincerely enjoys helping others

Jean Lua

He uses a direct but kind approach and caters his lessons to your skill level. His lessons and inspirational words help keep me motivated on tough days! I recommend this course for all photographers, regardless of skill level, as his experience and guidance is applicable to all who seek to improve their work.
