YOU’RE GOING TO LEARN

Master a practical framework for creating Grand Landscapes.

And you can shoot these kinds of photos anywhere you are, whether it’s New Zealand, Italy, or Death Valley. You can watch this course this afternoon and go take photos like this tonight.
Now you may be saying Practical Framewhat?? What are you talking about, Cripps? Well let me tell ya! It turns out that virtually every grand landscape photo is built from the same 9 fundamental building blocks. And that’s true even for photos that look totally different!! At first glance these photos don’t have much in common, but believe it or not they are built from the same 9 parts.
And you can shoot these kinds of photos anywhere you are, whether it’s New Zealand, Italy, or Death Valley. You can watch this course this afternoon and go take photos like this tonight.
And if you understand what those parts are you can easily create killer grand landscapes wherever you go. So that’s what I mean by a practical framework, and that’s what you’re going to learn in this course. I’d love to ask you a question: have you ever looked at photos on Instagram or in Outdoor Photographer Magazine or on 500px and you were totally blown away, but at the same time you were totally frustrated because your photos didn’t look like those photos?? You know that feeling, inspired but annoyed at the same time? Send me an email and let me know if this has happened to you. It definitely happened to me when I was first learning and I was incredibly frustrated. I set about dissecting those amazing photos and understanding exactly what they’re made of. I developed my framework of 9 parts, and that’s you’re going to master in this course to start creating your own epic photos. If that sounds good to you, just hit this button to get your name on the course launch priority list.

HEY! I’M JOSH CRIPPS.

I’ve helped thousands of people improve their photos. Here’s how I can help you.

I’ve been teaching photography for over 10 years. In the beginning I was teaching only myself. But as I began to understand what made a good photo I quickly moved on to assisting other photographers on their workshops, and then to teaching my own. Since then I’ve instructed thousands of photographers in person in some of the most beautiful places in the world.

But I didn’t stop there. I also created Pro Photo Tips, one of the most popular photography channels on YouTube, which has over 300,000 subscribers and 12 million video views (and counting!).

Throughout these years of teaching (as well as refining my own photography) I’ve learned a lot about what makes a good photo and what doesn’t.

I’ve also come to realize when you’re learning photography you need more than just theory. You need practical approaches, step-by-step processes, and go-to ideas about how to craft a winning image. You need a framework to start from that you can build your own creative ideas off of.

That’s why I created 9 Easy Steps to Photographing Epic Grand Landscapes. To give you a framework you can use to create breathtaking photos like the ones you see in magazines.

This course lays out that framework in black and white. There are 10 chapters and 13 total lessons (including a complete start-to-finish walkthrough of how I created one of my favorite Grand Landscape shots) which teach you everything you need to start creating epic grand landscape photos today.

WHAT’S INSIDE THIS COURSE
  • 10 individual chapters and 13 total video lessons with 120 minutes of instruction. Each lesson is short (less than 15 minutes), to-the-point, and digestible. Tons of examples, visuals, and downloads make learning easy and succinct, with clear takeaways for each lesson. No filler and no blather means you get results today.
  • Bonus lessons on in-depth post processing for grand landscapes, using filters, getting a perfect exposure, and more.
  • Guided learning at your own pace. You can start and stop the course whenever you like, watch lessons as many times as you want, and skip around in the course curriculum.
  • Photo Challenges to help you reinforce the ideas contained in each lesson. By practicing each skill you hammer them home and make them second nature.
  • Bonus materials to help your learning. There are tons of example images, cheatsheets, notes, and guides to accompany the lessons, helping you get the most out of the course.
  • Q&A. Ask questions and get answers from the instructor. AKA Josh Cripps. AKA me!
LESSON TOPICS
  • The 4 qualities your location needs to work as a Grand Landscape, as well as the kinds of locations that don’t cut the mustard.
  • Choosing the right lens for a Grand Landscape and how to vary your focal length to emphasize the parts of the scene most important to you.
  • How to tell your story of a landscape by choosing specific foreground, midground, & background elements. Hint: there’s an easy way to tell if you’ve picked the right things.
  • The 5 characteristics of an amazing foreground, what makes an outstanding midground, and the single most important thing you should look for in a background element.
  • How to pull your viewer into the frame and lead them on a visual journey.
  • Using camera position to control the visual flow of your photo.

  • A no-nonsense method to picking the perfect aperture and shutter speed every time.
  • The simple secret behind creating a painterly feel with the light and exposure of your images.
  • The most important post processing steps you can take to make your images pop.
  • The secret to happiness. Just kidding. I wanted to see who’s paying attention. Although, you know, if you, if your landscape photography gets better, that is kind of a secret to happiness…
IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?
The answer is a big fat YES if you:
  • Don’t know why your photos don’t look like those in the magazines.
  • Can’t get your photos sharp from front to back.
  • Don’t get the color, light, or detail you want in a photo.
  • Let your camera make more decisions about your shots than you do.
  • Don’t know how to tell if you have a good composition, or if something should be in your frame or not.
  • Can’t direct your viewers’ attention in your photos.
  • Don’t know which lens to use and why.
  • Want to learn how to turn your artistic vision into a photograph.
  • Just don’t say WOW when you look at your own photos.
If any of this applies to you, then you are in the right place and this course is going to fix all of your problems. Well, maybe not all of your problems, but at least some of your landscape photography problems right now.
SKILL LEVEL
9 Easy Steps to Photographing Epic Grand Landscapes is a course aimed at intermediate photographers but will be useful for anyone who wants to learn how to create epic Grand Landscape photos.
Here’s what people have said about Josh’s other courses:
“Oh My Gosh! This course has got to be the best investment I have ever made for my photography. Josh has such an amazing talent for breaking down and explaining things in such a clear and simple way, it makes things so easy to understand. I have experienced so many, “OMG! how did I not get that before,” moments throughout this course. I have found a confidence that I never had before doing this course, even when I thought I knew what I was doing, I realise now that I was only going through the motions and not truly understanding why I was making the decisions I was, probably because I read somewhere that’s what I should be doing. I can’t begin to explain how much I have learned and now really understand.

One example would be Lesson 3, what a forehead slapping revelation that was for me. Josh has broken down ISO, Aperture, & Shutter Speed in a way I have never had it explained before, it seems so easy now!!! I think I have every card with pictures of the lens openings, blurry bunnies and any other kind of reference to try and understand these three beasts, and all it took was a video from Josh for me to finally get it, and how to use them when taking a photo.

This course offers so much information, support and feedback, you would have to attend half a dozen workshops to receive the same amount of knowledge. It not only teaches, but also inspires you to get your camera out of the cupboard and participate in the photo challenges at the end of each lesson. Post them to the community page, get feedback and watch your photos improve every- day.

I could write a novel noting all the things I love about this course, but it would be easier for you to do yourself and your photography a huge favour and join this course, you won’t regret it.”

“I am blown away by the content. It is just awesome. Josh lays out the meat of getting great photography in an easy to understand as well as entertaining way. I have already used his guideline of one of his charts titled ‘What Kind of Light Works for Different Scenes’ on a recent trip to a National Forest. I can’t always get out for Golden Hour so this was very real world helpful for me. The lesson where Josh analyzes the 4 critical parts of HIS images to show what doesn’t work vs what and why the same scene does work is one I have already watched more than once.

I think practicing in the field the 4 critical parts of an image before pressing the shutter button will increase my keepers and “WOW” photos immensely. This really is the secret ingredient of wall hanging photos. Each lesson of this course just keeps getting better and better.”

100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

Try the course risk free! This course has a full 30-day refund policy. If you try the course and it isn’t for you, no problem. Just send me a message in the first 30 days and I’ll refund 100% of your tuition.

100% BONUS CAT PHOTO

The course starts when you enroll and ends when you finish it. It is a completely self-paced online course. You decide when you start and when you finish.

The total course run time is about 120 minutes. There are 10 modules comprising 13 total lessons, each with its own video lecture. Most videos are 5-10 minutes long. The additional bonus lessons add another 45-60 minutes of instruction on filters, post-processing, exposure, and more.

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like, across any and all devices you own.

Absolutely! Every lecture, worksheet, and transcript is available for you to download.

You will get the most out of this if you have the following gear:
– DSLR / Mirrorless Camera
– Wide or Ultra-Wide Angle Lens
– Sturdy Tripod
– Remote Shutter Release
– GND Filters (Optional)
– Extra Batteries, Memory Cards, Lens Wipes
– Snacks (Not Optional)

I am working as hard as I can to make sure this course delivers the same value as a workshop, if not more. I don’t want to waste your time or your money so I’ve worked to make sure every lesson is useful, practical, easy-to-understand, quick to consume, and information-dense. Based on my experience teaching workshops I’d say most students can absorb two to three of these techniques in the course of a 4-day workshop. So this course delivers roughly 3-4 workshops’ worth of information that you can consume on your own schedule. And like a workshop with this course you can ask questions, get feedback, and build a community of friends and fellow photographers.

Once you enroll you have full access to the complete course. That’s 13 instructional videos and a total of 2 hours of content. You also get lesson transcripts and bonus learning aides like eBooks, step-by-step flowcharts, lighting guides, creativity exercises, and more. Each lesson also has a discussion so you can ask questions and have them answered by the instructor.

Think about every “How To” video you’ve ever watched online. Ever notice how the presenters talk for 20 minutes before getting into the actual technique they’re trying to teach? Don’t you wish they would just SHUT UP AND TEACH you how to do what they do?

“Shut Up And Teach” – That’s the philosophy I used when creating the lessons for this course. No filler, no blather. Just fantastic information in easy-to-digest bites.

This is not a sprawling “how to do everything in landscape photography” kind of course, which is what those other courses tend to be. In those ponderous courses you’ve got sit through the instructor talking about a bunch of stuff that’s not relevant to you before you pick up that nugget of info that actually is. Who’s got time to watch 12 hours of video just to learn one salient point?

The whole idea of 9 Easy Steps to Photographing Epic Grand Landscapes is to get you a real photographic transformation in as little time as possible. The techniques I’m presenting in this course took me years to learn, and thousands of dollars in time, travel, excursions, and practice. I want to help you understand them as quickly and easily as I can. You can watch the course this afternoon and start taking epic grand landscape photos tonight.

I also want to keep the community small, engaged, and full of dedicated photographers who genuinely want to learn and improve their photos. I would much rather have 20 really excited photographers in the course than 20,000 who don’t care. “Bargain Basement” online courses don’t provide value, don’t give you incentive to continue learning, and don’t encourage you to achieve the results you’re looking for. This course does.

Yes you can. You will see the PayPal option on the checkout screen.

I have a full 30-day refund policy. If you have completed at least three lessons and are unsatisfied with your purchase contact me and I will give you a full refund.

Of course! Send an email to [email protected] and I’ll get back to you right away.
