NOTE ABOUT THIS COURSE
If you are serious about photography and making money in this business you have to buy the required equipment. Many courses fail to teach you what exactly the equipment you need to get started and what is the minimum requirement that you actually need to be able to get the job done. This course is designed for newbies who know how to take pictures most of this course focuses on essential gear, how to create a website and marketing yourself.
You do not have to get all the equipment right away you buy it as you save up money, I do not recommend you take out a loan or just using a credit card to pay for it its much better to save your money then pay for it in full. Some equipment might seem expensive but for photography purposes its not and anything cheaper just won't give you the quality you need to pass as a professional no matter how good your skills are.
Selected lectures will give you external links to recommended equipment or other stuff I mentioned in case you do want to purchase it for yourself. Also note I am heavily biased when it comes to Canon most photographers choose a brand they like and use it I happen to like Canon so most of my recommendations are Canon gear. If you want to know other brand equipment I recommend feel free to ask me.
Not all equipment is the same and if you want better quality you need to pay for it. This course gives you all your options you definitely can save a lot of money by buying the stuff that is suggested if you buy it used or if its white label none USA warranty. The rest of the course then focuses what you need to do to build your business, how to market yourself, create a website and then how to edit your pictures using iPhoto.
