Course Lessons:

Lesson 1: On Getting Started (Duration 16:13)

It all started with assignments for a newspaper and then moving up from there as a photojournalist. Being an early adopter in digital afforded many opportunities for assignments that would not have come otherwise.

Lesson 2: On Working with Celebrities (Duration 13:40)

Building relationships over time allows you to build connections that opens doors to new opportunities.

Lesson 3: On Shooting Sports (Duration 21:01)

There are two types of sports photos: action and reaction. You don't know what's going to happen ahead of time, so you just need to be ready to shoot. David also shares stories on how to give back and tips for those just getting started.
