⚠️ You buy a nice camera, but your not satisfied with your pics. So you purchase even more expensive gear, yet still get the same results.
⚠️ Next, you purchase training, but never finish it and have gigabytes of unwatched tutorials on your hard drive.
⚠️ So you join a "private" group for inspiration, support, and feedback, yet quickly encounter spammers, trolls, or stalkers.
⚠️ In the end, your camera collects dust. You feel guilty about the money you spent. A negative voice reminds you that you're not creative anyways.
I was tired of seeing people lose their joy for photography or give up on their passion, thanks to:
👎 An industrial photography machine pushing expensive gear and software as the best solution to take better images.
👎 Invasive social media empires that brainwash photographers into believing creativity is about accumulating likes.
👎 Misleading groups, courses, and websites that promise community but only offer a facade of connection.
👎 Uninspiring learning materials that lack dynamic feedback and accountability.
And it's loaded with in-depth, practical training and resources on all aspects of landscape photography, from creativity and composition, to gear and post processing.
It doesn't matter which genres of outdoor photography you enjoy: natural landscapes, urban landscapes, night sky (astro and Milky Way photography), aerial (drone), or seascapes. All types of landscape photographers are welcome.
Finally, it has the community support you need to ensure your photography reaches new heights.

Hey there, I'm Pete DeMarco, a former university lecturer from the US turned full time landscape photographer and teacher.
Ever since I got started in photography back in 2007, my highlight has been meeting inspiring image-makers.
Nothing has made happier than being a part of and giving back to the photographic community. My goal is to help visual story tellers share their message with the world. That's why I started this site.
