"An eagerly anticipated follow on to the Introduction to YouTube for Video Creators. This course gives you the understanding to use the parts of your camera us photographers are normally scared of. Excellent, short videos with tonnes of information below that allows you to go deeper if you want. With this course you know you’re getting the right information as Greg is one of the best in the videography business. This is a must read and watch if you want to start filming"

- Ron Cunningham, Owner and Founder at Parabaldie Photography

'Highly recommended 5 Stars *****

This is my second teachable course with Greg, and WOW I am so impressed with the level of content Greg provided in this course while also providing easy to follow bite size lectures which enabled you at your own pace to digest the information without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.

It’s a great way to learn and expand your knowledge.'

- Owain Jones, Landscape Photographer, Wales, UK

"I have always found Greg's YouTube channel to be very inspiring. And from seeing his professionalism and high-quality standards on his channel, I knew that any course he would produce would meet those same standards. Greg's latest course, The Basics of Videography for Photographers, is no exception to this rule. Greg presents the information in this course in both an entertaining and informative manner. He breaks the information down into easily digestible sections. In places where other instructors have put me and others to sleep, Greg finds a way to break with that norm. His use of "challenges" at the end of each section allows you to put the information into practice. If you have thought of using your mirrorless or DSLR camera to shoot video, then The Basics of Videography for Photography by Greg Snell is for you. I will warn you that it may be a "gateway" course to powering your own inspirational journey."

"Just like the Introduction to YouTube for Video Creators, I have been with Greg throughout the entire process of creating this course. It was amazing to watch the research and dedication he put into crafting the detailed curriculum. Plus then filming all of the videos and editing this intricate content into quick and easy to understand video lectures. Once again I'm extremely proud of the digital product he's been able to create!"

- Nellie Winter, Founder of Winter's Marketing

"Greg's Basics of Videography for Photographers course was an excellent introduction to the world of videography. Each subject was clearly discussed and Greg's explanation of the technical aspects was broken down in such a manner to make the subject matter more understandable. I would certainly recommend this for someone who is looking to start making their own videos"

- Jim Scott, Landscape Photographer

I closed the gaps in my technical understanding of video making, the tips and challenges each section gives you creates new tools for storytelling and they are fun to accomplish. Also the Facebook community from which you will be a part of is a great group of creators looking to better themselves and help others achieve their goals in video creation. I hope to see you there!"

"Greg covered all important basics in a way that is easy to follow for an absolute beginner. He explained everything without unnecessary jargon, in the way that I didn't need to search for any additional resources. Both video and additional reading materials are prepared on the highest level of professionalism and contain everything you need to know at this stage of your education. All the information are straight to the point and no nonsense. I highly recommend this course if you like me already have a camera but you didn't really figure out how to record good quality video."

- Norbert Grabowski, Photographer and beginner Videographer
