If you are one of the many photographers who are challenged by both composition and translating your vision into strong photographs with purpose, this is for you.
Largely considered one of the most influential photographers of the last century, Henri Cartier-Bresson said “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst”. Unfortunately some photographers give up too soon, frustrated by results that don’t meet their expectations. Overnight success is a myth. Most anyone who has accomplished something worthwhile first paid their dues with splendid effort and persistence.
