Something for everyone
Whether you’re interested in food or fashion photography, have three months or 30 years of experience, you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your interest and skill level.
While there are plenty of self-proclaimed “photography experts” online, the majority aren’t able to produce even average images without extensive retouching — and you definitely won’t see them shooting live and sharing their results in real-time.
Karl Taylor is the exception. He is respected by amateurs and pros across the industry for his ability to clearly and concisely communicate both the artistic and technical aspects of photography. Karl breaks down complex subjects with a logical and entertaining approach that has attracted a worldwide following
What our members have to say
“I only joined today and I’ve already had more value than my subscription. Brilliant format, Karl is one of the best on YouTube but this raises the bar by several levels.” – M. Harris
“I learned a great deal about lighting from Karl Taylor when I first started off. It was his courses that were the key for me. It taught me to understand how to control light to achieve the image you want. Change the way someone feels and they will remember the image.”
David Lund, Professional Photography
“Karl has definitely helped me with my business, from the skills and techniques i’ve learnt and also just giving me new ideas and inspiration for potential shoots. It’s an easy watch, it’s entertaining and you learn which is the whole point ”
Poppy Larbalestier, Professional wedding photographer
“It’s the second best thing to having someone like Karl in the studio with you prompting you to do things… It fills a niche which is for people who really want to benefit their crafts skills and really up their level of confidence in terms of getting behind a camera.”
Laurie Castelli, Television director
