You've inspired me and made me understand what vision is: something made real through creative work. And you've taught me how to use tools and techniques that will make my vision come to life. You've taught me that I'm an artist who happens to use a camera.
"You are my source of inspiration, after several years being away from photography, You gave me the tools to express myself and you know very well how important and valuable this process is for our existence as human beings."

As a photographic artist, you know that Black & White photography has its own special set of challenges. That’s because it’s about more than just 256 shades of gray. It’s about using tone and contrast in a compelling way. It’s about creating a visual roadmap for anyone that views your work. It’s about mastering the use of a limited visual palette in such a way that you actually expand your ability to express yourself. This course is a deep dive into those challenges. It’s not designed to simply overcome them. It’s designed to obliterate them!
