Does photography feel like a guessing game?

I remember that feeling well!

Most camera owners are confused, frustrated & overwhelmed when trying to learn their camera settings and editing software.

That's why we create easy, step-by-step photography courses that teach you, in plain English, how to confidently shoot & edit pro-quality photos every time.

Hi, I’m David Molnar and I remember being overwhelmed when I was trying to learn to take great photos.

And even more overwhelmed when I was staring at a Photoshop screen.
Even after years of photography classes I still felt confused.

I wished an experienced pro photographer would have mentored me on what I needed to know (and skip all the boring scientific nonsense).

I realized photography is not that hard when you have a simple plan to follow.
We’ve just had super nerds, that are way too smart, trying to explain photography to us.
I dreamed of helping aspiring photographers avoid all the trial and error and years of frustration I went through.

As a busy working photographer my photos were featured on millions of Pepsi cans, in People Magazine and the New York times. But all I could do was dream bigger.  

I dreamed of helping tens of thousands of photographers pursue their dreams.

So I built a simple plan anyone can follow and now mentor people like YOU.

Now my company is mentoring over 200,000 students who are following the step-by-step plan to become great photographers.
