"I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO GAIN FURTHER INSIGHTS INTO PHOTOGRAPHY."
Not just another course on photography, "Photography on the Brain" gives insights into why we should try different approaches in order to become better photographers. For example rather than simply describe what a wide angle lens is, Dan talks about how it can affect you compositional style and how you can use it to your advantage in certain situations.
"YOUR ADVICE HAS INSPIRED ME TO TRY NEW THINGS"
I consider myself an advanced amateur and my interests range from macro/close-up of flowers and plants, to landscapes. Dan Bailey provides great advice that will help you get to the next level.
"YOUR STUFF ON THE WEB IS REALLY INSPIRING."
You have this great ability to make things easy to understand. Especially your brilliant e-book "X-series unlimited" have been very useful and motivating in understanding, exploring and be able to get the most out of my XT-2.
I see you as a Giver, and it is very inspiring to have the possibility to learn the best tips and tricks from an outstanding photographer. Keep up the good work!
"DAN’S PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY IS INFECTIOUS AND MOTIVATIONAL"
Dan's dynamic teaching approach is based on liberating people from the hugely technical side, instead emphasising the ‘get out there and give it a go’ method. He has remarkable ability to break down analysis and learning into bite-size chunks that give you the confidence to try.
Many would-be teachers get bogged down in what they regard as essential details before suggesting taking a photo, by which time the student’s mind is not on the photo, but the camera.
Obviously with Dan’s experiential learning approach, every student is allowed to start at their own beginning.
Dan is very generous not only with his time but his knowledge and experiences. He is not a pixel-peeper, he views cameras as tools, not subjects for constant comparison, and his primary aim is to get the highest quality picture in the simplest way and to share his knowledge with everyone who is interested.
"I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK AT AND COMMENT ON MY TWO RECENT PHOTO SUBMISSIONS"
I am really liking those comments! They have helped fuel my excitement for photography.
"I’M SURE THAT EXPERIENCING DAN’S ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM IN THIS MEDIUM WILL ADD ANOTHER DIMENSION TO THE LEARNING, ENCOURAGING ONE’S CREATIVE BREAKTHROUGHS. I’LL CERTAINLY BE JOINING THAT SUBSCRIBER LIST."
Dan is a professional shooter, teacher and blogger with a passion for sharing his experience and insights with others. He has an easy, relaxed style of communication, making it enjoyable to read or listen to his insight.
I recently listened to an hour-long podcast interview with Dan. I was so taken with his knowledge and passion for photography that I wrote to tell him how inspiring I found it. He wrote back immediately thanking me and told me he is planning a monthly video-style blog series for subscribers that will provide personal instruction and inspiration.
"WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN"
After leaving film photography 25 years ago, Dan has brought me into digital photography and has always encouraged me. He will ask what I am shooting, make a positive comment and then a suggestion that I might try.
"DAN IS A WONDERFUL TEACHER WHO SINCERELY ENJOYS HELPING OTHERS"
He uses a direct but kind approach and caters his lessons to your skill level. His lessons and inspirational words help keep me motivated on tough days! I recommend this course for all photographers, regardless of skill level, as his experience and guidance is applicable to all who seek to improve their work.
"DAN WANTS HIS PHOTOGRAPHY TO ALLOW THE VIEWER "TO BECOME IMMERSED IN THE ACTION"."
I have found his teaching style to do the same. He is able to share his knowledge of photography in a clear and uncomplicated way that is both inspiring and enjoyable.
"I HAVE SIGNED UP AND VIEWED THE FIRST LESSON AND FOUND IT HELPFUL!"
"YOU CAN'T REALLY BE A FOLLOWER WITHOUT BEING ENTHUSED BY YOUR ENTHUSIASM FOR PHOTOGRAPHY"
For me it's helped me just get out and do it, no matter what the weather.
I recently sent an email regarding tips in using wide angle lenses and must admit quick surprise it was actually YOU responding and not perhaps a staff assistant. This has spurred me "onward" to enjoy, learn, do my best and enjoy, enjoy and again enjoy while I am able.
"I LOOK AT YOUR WEB SITE AT LEAST EVERY WEEK."
You are in my top 4 camera web sites. I have recommended you to friends who have enjoyed your blog even more than me.
Composition is not a natural gift of mine, but your work has challenged and inspired me, and I think I'm getting better. Crazy inspiration! Sound practical advice. Objective analysis. Helpful.
"DAN BAILEY’S KNOWLEDGE OF OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!"
His enthusiasm and passion for making images is unparalleled. He simplifies what could be complex, and imparts a vision that inspires one to get out and shoot. Dan is approachable and responsive to any questions one might have. I have had the pleasure of attending workshops and presentations with Dan, and he personifies talent, integrity and expertise and caring. Plus, he is FUN!
