“Over the past 15 years I have taught thousands of people how to use a camera. As a professional photographer I value time and simplicity. Camera Easy is my philosophy.”
Greg Johnson, The Tornado Hunter
Camera Easy is the best way to learn how to use your fancy camera. I have been a professional photographer for 20 years and I have been teaching photography for 15.
Cameras are intimidating and difficult to use. This is where Camera Easy comes to the rescue. My philosophy and teaching style is to eliminate all the distractions. Today’s cameras have too many bells and whistles and buttons and dials. It’s very distracting, creates confusion, and prevents newbies from getting any enjoyment out of their new investment.
Camera Easy is at its core, my own personal method of shooting photos. This is what I do.
You may wonder why my title is listed as The Tornado Hunter. That is what I do (Tornado Hunters, on Netflix US). I am a storm chaser and photographer first. I travel all over North America hunting down the baddest storms I can find. I want you to imagine shooting photos in that environment…you need to:
Camera Easy works because I have to keep it as simple as possible or I cannot do these three things. For me, it’s a tornado coming towards me. For you, it may be a 3-year-old making a funny face or a bride walking down the aisle. It’s easy. And it works. You will understand the camera and you will start to enjoy photography. I guarantee it.
