Online Photography Course – Yes or No?

A while ago I’ve seen an advertisement from Darren Rose Photography School site; the ad is about a website that teaches photography online.  When enrolled, you’ll be having your dedicated tutor through out your online course; and here’s the catch, which other online schooling does not offer.  There’s no time limit; you study at your own phase and time. Now the question is, is it worth it to spend USD $84.60 (used to be USD $114.20)?  Will I have a time to finish it?  With the blog sites that I take care of and of course my job that requires 12 hours a day from my time.  What am I thinking?

I guess I should do it since I already bought an expensive camera and not to mention the lens and accessories that goes along with this expensive hobby.If you’re also interested, you can visit their Online Photography site.

Here’s an outline of their course syllabus: 

1. Introduction to Photography
2. Digital Photography
3. Exposure: Shutter Speed
4. Exposure: Aperture
5. Composition
6. Light
7. Shooting Black and White
8. Travel Photography I.
9. Travel Photography II.
10. Portraits
11. People and Their Environment
12. Insiders’ Tricks and Techniques
13. Common Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them 

Aside from the 13 important segments that you’ll get from the course, you will also get a Certificate of Recognition certificate.jpg that will be mailed to you and a lifetime membership and access to 500 MB FREE Photo Gallery on their site.

If you run a blog site you apply to their affiliate program and here’s an image that will show you what you can earn from their program:

I'm not a Professional writer nor did I study Journalism or Literature, but I love sharing my travel experiences and advise other travelers who have not seen what I have. I've been blogging since 2007 and traveled to a lot of places and I love it and will continue doing it until the time that I can't walk anymore.


  • hehehe Good luck 🙂 but you know what? I prefer a traditional classroom rather than that. It’s okay if it’s a creative writing class but photography is different, kailangan mong ma expose sa labas together with other aspiring photographers diba?
    yun lang. 🙂

  • hi manilenya (i won’t reveal your real name hehehe) thnx for dropping by.

    How I wish that I can enroll on traditional classroom, and there’s a lot of subject out there to shoot but the problem is I’m out of the Philippines and the real world hehehe.

    I just signed the other day sa Digital Photography School, you din ba? 🙂

    I hope this is not the last time that you’ll drop by.

    thnx M.

  • sus I’m out of Philippines din, pero I decided to take a photography course part time nga lang, one of these days siguro, bili muna ko cam wala pa ko cam e lol! alangan namang yung digital ang dalin ko sa school ano?

    hehe kahit pa ireveal mo real name ko lol!! parang kalat na kalat na yata real name ko no 🙂

  • pero nasa real world ka naman, di nakakulong hahaha. mga mestiso’t mestisa pa mga modelo mo. 🙂

    You’re right, better get a real cam first before you enroll on a real photography course. I got my SLR on But, before you order online let me know I’ll give you a link. A link of an affiliate. hehehe 🙂
