This course is made up of Modules and Segments
This course is made up of various modules, each of which has a number of video segments that set out to explain individual elements of the main topic.
Every module is designed to stand on its own, covering the overall topic that the title of the module suggests, but it may benefit from the modules that come before it. Whether it is possible to watch modules out of sequence depends on your own previous experience with this topic.
Each module has a number of video segments, each of which correspond to a particular page in every set of tutorial notes. These segments concentrate on a specific topic relevant to that particular module. They are also great for quick recaps at a later stage.
Full color, Illustrated PDF Tutorial Notes
Full color, illustrated PDF tutorial notes which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are given out, we believe our handouts are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting. As part of that philosophy, you will receive detailed notes covering the whole course that will both aid learning both while on the course and in the weeks and months afterwards. These will be made available to you for immediate download once the course is purchased.

Course Tutor: Dave McKane
The tutor for this course is a fine art photographer, Dave McKane. Over the years, he has owned and used over 30 cameras, covering all of the major brands. He is well versed in almost every camera available on the market today. Dave started teaching photography in 1985, and set up the Institute of Photography in 2005 (now the IOP-Online), since then, he has taught over 20,000 students. He has also been the lead trainer for both Canon and Nikon.
Dave has vast experience in the field of using photography as a creative expressive medium. He has held multiple exhibitions of his own photography, mainly in the United States.
Dave graduated with honors from a 3 Year Photography Course in Dublin, Ireland, in 1985, and has over 35 years of experience in creative photography. He received his first film SLR in 1982 and has owned many darkrooms. Dave was early to adopt the use of a scanner (1989), Photoshop (1993), his first digital camera (2002), and Lightroom (2007).
His favorite saying? "It depends..."
Dave believes that there is only one answer to every question in photography. When he is asked what lens to get, "it depends"; the best flash; best camera; best tripod. He feels he is not being trite with this answer, simply because there is no "best." With flash, for example, a good one might not be available for your camera, so he needs to know the camera first. With lenses, he needs to understand what your budget is.
