After years of point and shoot photography I enrolled in a professional course with The Photography Institute. I knew that if I tried to learn all that I needed to know on my own, I would just become lost and confused. I hesitated to begin the course because it is entirely online and I wondered if lacking the presence of an instructor would somehow diminish the experience. I was not disappointed. The course teaches everything one needs to begin a career as a professional photographer. Of course, having a diploma in hand does not make one a great photographer. That takes time and a LOT of practice. I’m nearing retirement so a grand career is probably not in the cards, but I’m having a blast and learning something new almost daily. My partner and I will soon be relocating to Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico. Moving to a foreign country can be daunting, but we are excited about the new adventure ahead. Photographic opportunities in this amazing country are boundless. My primary interest is urban architecture, but I also enjoy anything that captures the daily rhythm of life in any city or town. I enjoy discovering unique photographic opportunities. I hope you will follow along with me as I explore. I especially appreciate your comments and ‘likes.’
