What I did different In learning Photography

Photos of Raul Colon Web Developer Puerto RicoAfter I left college with a degree in Public Accounting I decided I would follow my dream of doing many things in my life.

From that point on I worked as:

  • Tax Accountant
  • Operational Auditor
  • Financial Auditor
  • Project Manager
  • IT Solutions Developer
  • IT Auditor
  • IT Governance advisor
  • Information Security consultant
  • Web Developer
  • Owner
  • Digital Marketer
  • Blogger
  • Business and Personal Coach
  • and Photographer.

Out of that list, the only ones I had taken formal training for was the accounting related jobs (in bold) .

I have been a technology consultant for over a decade. Other than the training I received in KPMG, I had only one Microsoft Excel class I took one semester worth two university credits. The certifications I gained and the opportunities I found in Technology where pretty much self taught.

My Commitment to Understanding Photography

For years I attempted to work on my photography doing it on my own.

Over time I got slightly better at understanding certain aspects of it. Even with all the reading and online tutorials I took, it kept me from understanding some basic photography concepts.

This past summer when I started getting more serious about photography, I decided I wanted to take a class.

Lots of Knowledge Transfer, No Course Work

Most courses offered by universities were difficult to fit in my schedule.

My contact and fellow photographer Nelson Bermejo, who is also a TV, and Radio veteran, recommended Abnel. Abnel happens to be one of Puerto Rico’s top fashion photographers.

I took a glance at Abnel’s Basic Photography course and contacted him. It impressed me at how helpful he was in answering my questions.

I enrolled in his Basic Photography course and finished the course. In a matter of 5 weeks, Abnel helped me understand photography and connect it to what I’d read. I am currently taking his Photo Editing course involving Lightroom and Photoshop. Every chance I get to learn from Abnel, I do so.

My commitment to learning from Abnel also brought me another opportunity. Abnel invited me to give the English Basic Photography course he will start offering in 2015.

Every time I have an interaction with Abnel, he is willing to help and provides great advice.

It is time for me to return the favor and invite you to Abnel’s Night Photography Workshop. I took this workshop about a month ago and got lots of cool tips on shooting with low light conditions.

If you or someone you know would like to take this course. Make sure they register because it fills up quickly.
