With the photography industry making a huge comeback in recent years, thanks to the low prices and new technological advances, many aspiring photographers are starting to take their craft more seriously. And the big winners? Photography teachers.
As more people share their newly developed skills, using social networks and sophisticated cameras, they desire practical training that can give them the edge over the many competitors out there. Photography classes have increased all over the world, and instructors are in high demand (the professional ones at least). It’s true that almost anyone can load up their extra Cannon digital camera battery and go on a nature photography adventure. But not all can capture it professionally and with a creative touch. And that’s where many people turn to the pros. To get a sense of how they can use the rise in technology and the availability of semi professional cameras and digital memory cards to their advantage, many people are signing up for classes. Will it make a difference? It seems so. New photo magazines are suddenly appearing and more photographers are creating interesting and engaging websites that market to the Internet’s visual style. Let’s wait and see if the next world famous photograph comes from an amateur. That will be the true sign that times have changed.
