A2. Great question. Let us look at the problems a student might face when they want to learn from these free online courses.

  • Lack of a structured learning pattern

These online photography courses that we we’ve created for our students are structured keeping in mind the journey of a photography student. With Sudhir’s 25+ years of photography experience, we’ve specially designed the courses to help students discover their inherent photography skills and fine-tune it with the help of our learners’ group and experts. The material of these photography courses is much more in-depth than the usual tips and tricks you find on the internet. Besides, free courses only teach you the theoretical aspects of photography, but here at SSP, we lay a special emphasis on task evaluation, feedback sharing and group learning.

A3. Unfortunately, not. At this time, all our photography courses are available only in the English language.

A4. No, we don’t. The reason is that we believe that learning is a continuous process and that your practical skills matter more than any certification.

A5. We are glad that you asked. The point is, you can learn to develop most of your foundational photography skills with the camera you already have. The way we’ve structured the program is that you can start learning to take “magazine-worthy” photographs right now with the equipment you already have. Lessons from these modules apply to any DSLR or modern point and shoot digital cameras.

For advanced students, we do provide specific training for specific cameras. But if you have a different camera, the foundational techniques are still covered in other lessons and a different camera wouldn’t stop you from building your skills.

A6. Since these are online courses, you can learn at your own pace with what you already have right now.

A7. The concepts that we learn as a part of our photography courses are applicable to the genres of landscape, nature, portrait, sports, wildlife, street and macro photography.
