Okay, first things first: This is a course aimed at designers, artists, illustrators, and pretty much any other kind of creative person who’s interested in shooting high-quality photos.
Here’s a link to a quick, informative and idea-generating slideshow about this course; and right here is a link to a free sample chapter; and if you go here you’ll find the full course on LinkedIn Learning.

So, I’m a graphic designer who also takes pictures. I shoot lots and lots of photos for clients, for my own books and video courses, for other designers, and, very importantly, for fun creative projects of my own. And based on what I’ve experienced while learning to take good-looking photos, I've come to strongly believe that the aesthetic, conceptual, and communicative skills that many creativity-minded people already have can be easily applied to the art of taking pictures. All that's really needed is an improved understanding of how cameras function, an expanded definition of a photo opportunity, a better awareness of both natural and added light, and a decent set of skills related to programs like Photoshop and Lightroom.
And that's exactly what my 31-chapter course on photography talks about, teaches, and demonstrates.
The first half of the course covers the basics and encourages viewers to use whatever camera they can get their hands on—cellphone, pocket, DSLR, or mirrorless—and try out a series of confidence-building photo projects (the kinds of hand-on activities that not only tend to be a lot of fun, but are also likely to produce all kinds of images that can be proudly displayed at your home, office, or online).
The course’s second half takes the skills covered in part one and shows how they can be elevated and applied to both real-world client work and upper-level personal projects.
There’s plenty to look at in this course (I've counted something like 1500 photo samples and video clips), and, given that the course is taught from the perspective of a designer who shoots pictures, I think its look and its approach to teaching are quite a bit different from that offered by other online photo classes.
