As a beginning still photographer this had some very good information and techniques even though the video is a little dated (2012). Lots of real world examples. I think the best advice came from the interview with Hanson Fong in the last module. But I think that section could have been broken up as it also included the interview with a photographer who wasn't identified.

For the price of this course, I would have like to have seen photoshoots that was at least done in the last 2-3 years because equipment has changed so drastically what are these photographers (Clay, Sandy, and Hanson) are using now. When I saw the title and it said “How to Photograph Everyone” I was hoping for some action shots photography (sports). I shoot lacrosse, basketball, soccer and cross country. I was hoping to see something along these lines to help me develop as a sports photographer. So I was a little disappointed when it was more about staged photography. However, I did learn a few techniques for when I just want to shoot friends and family staged photography.
