providing you with the resources to learn and improve your photography game

This is my curated list of top landscape photography courses that are available in an online or digital platform.

Most of what I know from photography has been self-taught, and I thought I was covering all the basics. However it turns out that there are professional photographers out there who are incredibly smart, and who are really good at communicating these sometimes technical skills that are required to take your photography game to the next level.

Below are what I consider to be the ultimate landscape photography courses. I hope you get as much out of them as I have.

1. Photographing America's National Parks

the best free online photography courses In this incredible on-location course, professional outdoor photographer Ian Shive guides you through some of the most scenic locations for landscape photography in the world: America's national parks. He shows you how to capture images that are both emotionally and technically engaging, by demonstrating the techniques that produce the results that most accurately reflect how amazing these scenic locations actually are.

What I liked / Learned:

If you have ever traveled to national park (or anywhere beautiful for that matter), and have been disappointed with how your images do not reflect what it was like to actually be there, then this course will make you very happy. I found Ian's explanations of why certain techniques and equipment make a difference, to be very easy to digest, and even enjoyable.
