Improve your photography no matter which level you are at today with interactive online classes.
Whether you just wish to take better pictures for fun or if you want to learn how to become a successful professional photographer, or even if you already are working with photography but you wish to have more fun and earn more money, this program is for you.
From Rookie to Pro is a unique 3-month program designed by photographer Andrea Belluso to take you through all the steps and giving you all the knowledge you need to create what you desire with your photography.
From Rookie to Pro is made of 1 online class and 1 quick catch-up alternating every other week on the interactive platform Zoom, where you get to interact with Andrea and the other participants and ask any questions you may have.
If you miss a class, no worries, they are all recorded and you will be able to catch-up by simply watching the recording of what you have missed.
Almost all other photography courses are based on telling you what is right, what is wrong and how you should create the “perfect picture”.
In this program instead we give you the required technical knowledge to get you to create your pictures based on what is fun and what works for you, and not based on the rules.
We will look at everything from how to use a camera or even mobile device to take pictures, to starting to use manual or semi-automatic mode and moving up to basic light knowledge and more advanced techniques.
Apart from Andrea Belluso you will also receive coaching from other guest professionals, from photographers to retouchers and even business experts.

What do you need to participate in this program?
What you need to participate really depends on you. You can start with your phone for taking pictures and then you can either move on to a simple mirrorless camera or even move all the way up to medium format cameras. We will be discussing this during the first calls.
Of course you will need a computer but you are not required to have your own lights or even programs. It really depends on where you wish to take your photography, meaning that if you do wish to work as a photographer, at some point it would be recommended for you to invest in some things like Photoshop, Capture One Pro and eventually also a better camera, but it is not a must in order to participate in the program.
This is NOT your classical, educational course, it is a program that is designed to be FUN and bring out the joy in your photography, no matter your level of knowledge.
