Thank you for visiting Best-Photography-Courses.com (AKA "BPC").
I am Tobias, the founder and editor behind this site... have I told you that I am absolutely addicted to photography? Well, I think you already guessed it, right? :-)
The digital revolution in recent years changed the way of photography. It might have been an "elite" hobby in the past decades, but is now found in nearly every household. You are now uncoupled from the "classic film" and that thrills you, as well as millions of other people around the globe!
Nowadays, most of us carry a digital camera everywhere and anytime, right? Digital cameras simply enable you to perpetuate the most beautiful moments in your life!
Compact point-and-shoot cameras took households by storm and are great to make a couple of snap-shots. But, with digital SLR cameras you are entering a whole new world! This is where you can really get creative and make photos just like the professionals.
For me, photography is more than a passion. It's a way of life! (I believe so strong in it that I used that as my slogan for the BPC website)
I just LOVE photography. It doesn't even matter if it's a job or just for fun.

Over the years I've also learned a couple of great lessons: Photography is amazing, yes. But helping other people lift their photography skills to the next level is outstanding!
And that's why I've been building this website. To help YOU!
My blood, sweat and tears is in this website.
My grandfather was an aircraft test engineer - and also a passionate photgrapher. Just recently I digitalised his giant collection of slides and I want to share two excellent shots with you:
Two men hanging on an aircraft propeller
He once was in Africa with his team and one of his buddies made a shot that will stay in my mind for the rest of my life. It's soooo simple, I know.
But it has so much to say. Those four guys walking across the runway (just like the heroes of the famous movie "Armageddon"). The difference? This photography is over 50 years old and it's real. Oh, and the left man in the orange overall is my grandfather.

Just a picture?
No. It's A LOT more!
Photography is so much more than "Megapixels". It's about the emotions that you can awake in the viewer!
A photo that is over 50 years old inspires grand children like me. After all, it was the reason why I started BPC. Indeed, I've been able to build a real (and profitable) company around it!
I hope you can now understand what photography means to me. Indeed, I would even say that a single photograph can change a people's life (which is true and I am living proof, but don't get me started on that one ;-)).
If you want to improve your photography skills, you now have a wide range of choices. There are many courses that you can comfortably study online. Depending on your personal motivation, there are also many things that are best learned in person (maybe you need someone who is prepared to answer your questions).
Of course, if you are very serious about digital photography and want to become a professional photographer (make a living with photography) - your first choice should be a top photography school or college (Hallmark school of photography and Brooks school of photography are excellent choices).
A photograph really says more than 1,000 words. It just speaks for itself.
I love sunsets! All the colors, the shadows and this special flair - it's priceless, isn't it? In the photograph below you can see one of my favorite sunset shots.

For the picture below I even made an adventurous trip to an open cave in the Alps. There was this nice little waterfall that magically came from the border of the cave.

What about a simple wooden trail? I love this photograph (and meanwhile it also decorates my living room wall ;-))
