PHOTOGRAPHY ON THE BRAIN
GIVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY THE CREATIVE BOOST IT DESERVES
In my exclusive course, you’ll develop your own creative brain and explore a wide range of topics that challenge you to think about image making in a whole new way.
Drawing on over 30 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.
OVER 5 HOURS OF AWESOME INSTRUCTION AND INSIGHT!
As a 30 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!
THOUGHT PROVOKING LESSONS
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 to watch later.You’ll have unlimited access to the video lessons, so you can always go back and watch them again.
IDEAS YOU CAN USE
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 your personal style, and methods that help you improve your technique.
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.
You may find that a particular 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 methods of image making.
In time, and through practice, these ideas will work themselves into your own style.
TAKE PART IN OUR EXTENDED CONVERSATIONS
If you sign up for the WORKSHOP or the MENTORSHIP Tiers, you’ll have full access to the forum, where you can post your own photos, share your own ideas and insight, and join the conversation to further explore these topics with me and other students. This is actually a very beneficial component to learning
“I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO GAIN FURTHER INSIGHTS INTO PHOTOGRAPHY.”
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 HAS INSPIRED ME TO TRY NEW THINGS”
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.
“YOUR STUFF ON THE WEB IS REALLY INSPIRING.”
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’S PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY IS INFECTIOUS AND MOTIVATIONAL”
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.
“I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK AT AND COMMENT ON MY TWO RECENT PHOTO SUBMISSIONS”
I am really liking those comments! They have helped fuel my excitement for photography.
“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.”
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.
“WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN”
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 IS A WONDERFUL TEACHER WHO SINCERELY ENJOYS HELPING OTHERS”
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.
“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.
“I HAVE SIGNED UP AND VIEWED THE FIRST LESSON AND FOUND IT HELPFUL!”
“YOU CAN’T REALLY BE A FOLLOWER WITHOUT BEING ENTHUSED BY YOUR ENTHUSIASM FOR PHOTOGRAPHY”
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 LOOK AT YOUR WEB SITE AT LEAST EVERY WEEK.”
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.
“DAN BAILEY’S KNOWLEDGE OF OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!”
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!
