I’m a self-taught, professional photographer. I didn’t do any photography courses, studies relating to digital photography or other related short courses. Everything I learned about photography was done outside of higher education’s four walls.

So how did I learn how to take a decent photograph like this one?

Story Bridge
I decided against learning alongside school students, or through free TAFE programs because I wanted to experiment. I wanted to learn from my mistakes. I wanted to continually improve on my photography skills and turn it into a career at my own pace. Going to a small room every day or every week, weaving my way through a complicated campus, just didn’t appeal to me. So what if I had an advanced diploma? If my photos weren’t good, then I wouldn’t book any professional photography jobs.
