A career in commercial photography can be pretty exciting while you are photographing an annual report, company brochure, travel essay, an advertisement, or traveling the globe on assignment. Is this your idea of the dream job!
Can you photograph food for a restaurant menu or a company CEO for an annual report? Do you know how to 'style' a shoe to photograph? What price should you charge for a stock photo usage?

Learn about clients, portfolios, and marketing
Should you go to college or learn online?
While many general college programs teach basic through advanced photography skills, it can it takes years and cost a fortune. There are private professional schools to teach you How to Become a Professional Photographer and they have great programs but have you checked out the costs at those schools? One 10 month program in Massachusetts is over $25,000. Another very good school in Southern California does not even publish their tuition, but it is almost $100,000. Can you afford that?
This is the most complete online training in commercial photography!
That’s a bold statement isn’t it? This Commercial Photography Program is designed to meet the demands photographers experience in today’s markets, but what makes this program uniquely different is that the majority of photo examples used in the program are from real photo shoots, on real assignments, and photographed for real clients.
We did not just go into a studio and video tape where to put lights for all examples. Instead, we show you the photo taken in the studio or on location for a client. We show you in many cases why we chose the angle we used, where lights were placed, and any technical challenges we faced and how they were solved.
This course covers everything a commercial photographer might photograph:
- Product Photography
- Corporate and Industrial
- Fashion and Beauty
- Food and Beverage
and some Photoshop as well.

HAPPY STUDENTS SAY:
Charlie, I would like to thank you for sharing your expertise with me throughout this course. When I finish a photo shoot or finish retouching a photo in Photoshop, I am amazed at how much I have learned. A year ago I could not have imagined that I would have experienced so much.
I asked my friend Sarah to model for me to practice my lighting. The gym she
goes to, saw the pictures and asked me to shoot one for an ad, which is a before and after shot of Sarah. If I hadn't taken this course, I would have never had this opportunity! Thanks Charlie! Karen B. (Canada)
Charlie, Thanks for your support, this was a great course! Being really honest, it's my biggest dream to open my own studio. Now, I have to still learn, but I'm looking for possibilities for doing it. Mostly I'm interested in creating shots of people or models. Once more, thanks for your course.
