About Matt Solem

Like most people starting photography, I was a bit overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn. From equipment, to lighting, to composition, to exposure, it seemed like a lot.

Unlike most people, I decided to learn by writing. I scoured the web, books, photography expert’s videos, and learned from my own personal experience along the way. I wrote down everything. That’s how I learn best. I edited it down to only the most helpful information and thought that my writing could be useful to others.

I had to learn from many different sources to get the key information I needed to take great pictures. I don’t want you to have to do that. I hope to be the one source of condensed information that helps you learn photography fast, and get great results that will impress your friends, family, or clients.
