People learn from making pictures. Now, The Great Courses company and National Geographic are teaming up to produce a series of videos to help us make better photographs. It seems like a perfect match, especially considering the high standards of both institutions.
Paul Suijk, president of The Great Courses comments, “Our highly engaged customers expect to learn from the world’s greatest instructors, and our library of exceptional industry-leading learning products just got stronger with the addition of this compelling new content."
The first two courses from National Geographic feature magazine photographer Joel Sartore. Appropriately Satore's offering, “Fundamentals of Photography” and “The Art of Travel Photography" should attract a lot of interest from the amatuer and professional photography community.
According to a recent media announcement:
"Under the new partnership, The Great Courses and National Geographic will offer at least a dozen additional courses over the next five years, including titles on the art of videography, photographer-led video expeditions that explore how to photograph some of the world’s most scenic locales, and on-location lectures on science, culture and exploration delivered by the remarkable explorers and experts of the National Geographic Society."
