The BEST course on photography composition just got even BETTER!
Several years ago, I wrote Visual Flow: Mastering the Art of Composition, which was hailed by customers and critics alike as the best book ever written on photographic composition. After several thousands of copies sold, it's time for an upgrade. I've updated, revised, and improved upon the core concepts of the original book, and expanded it into a comprehensive video and ebook course that goes way beyond the original.
An artistic tour de force spanning several centuries and different artistic media, my Ultimate Photography Composition Course unlocks the composition secrets of the great masters, giving you the keys to create compelling and artistic photographs that will stand out from the crowd. This course will teach you how to see the world in ways you never before imagined.
For 15 years as a professional photographer, I've shared my knowledge with hundreds of thousands of people around the world through workshops, photo conferences and events, dozens of books, and as a frequent contributor for many leading photo publications. Everything I've taught over these many years has now been brought together in this amazing course. I'm proud to help you become the best photographer you can be!

This course will change the way you see the world!
The Ultimate Photography Composition Course will help you move past making mere snapshots, allowing you to make a more personal and deeper connection with your subjects, and to more effectively convey that experience to others through your photographs. Here's what you get with your purchase:
- 3.5 hours of composition theory video instruction: Explore at your own pace 16 video modules that discuss a number of important concepts and theories of visual design. I offer deep-dive analyses of dozens of compositions, cover fundamental and advanced compositional theories, and even discuss some basic digital darkroom processing techniques. My videos get straight to the point and are packed with tons of useful information.
- 250-page instructional ebook: The textbook for this course is a newly revised version of the book that started it all: my acclaimed ebook Visual Flow: Mastering the Art of Composition, hailed by customers and critics alike as the best book ever written on the topic of photography composition. Now, it is even better! Redesigned to complement and reinforce the topics discussed in the video, this book contains plenty of analysis and insights. This isn't some dry and dusty tome; rather, it offers a spirited, lively, and often humorous discussion of core compositional concepts.
- Detailed compositional analysis of great works of art: Before the invention of the camera, painters were the original masters of composition and visual design. In this course, I analyze dozens of some of the most famous paintings of the great masters of art, as well as hundreds of my own photographs. Each analysis is simple and easy to understand. Most important, the lessons from each analysis are easy to apply when you are making your own photographs, arming you with a number of important composition tools.
- In-depth discussion of dozens of styles of composition: I don't believe in the "Rules of Composition." Instead, I give you trusted tools that will be at your disposal when you are taking photographs. Making a successful composition is merely choosing the right tool for the job!
