Howdy and Welcome!

If you’re new around these parts, let me get you up to speed in three seconds or less. I’m a family man with a passion for photography. My desire to help regular folks take better pictures in the real world, led me to create this website over 11 years ago.

Online Learning

If you like watching videos, each week, I create and share free video tutorials on my YouTube channel and Facebook page. They often involve my growing family, which makes the learning experience fun and laid back. Here’s my latest video…

Individual Help

You’ll notice I respond to nearly every comment on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. Every day, I spend a couple hours answering questions about photography, filmmaking, gear and lots of other stuff. If you have a question, look me up on social media and ask away.

Beginners Group

Starting to Click Photo CommunityLast year I created the Starting to Click community on Instagram. Each month, beginners just like you, share pictures, stories and techniques with one another. The group is super supportive and encouraging. It’s like an extended family. Best of all, you’re invited to hang out with us. We’d love to have you.
