Start by taking a P.I.C.C. with any camera or phone  ...

I, too, was once unfamiliar with the intricacies of photography and seeing creatively. It all started when I was 12, captivated by the idea of capturing moments through a lens. 
I experimented with different picture framing compositions, progressing through practice and mistakes to where I am today on my picture taking trek, where I take pictures for the enjoyment of being in that creative state. See my picture taking anthology below. 
These experiences have fueled my passion, leading me to establish this online school and pen the book "Take a PICC," with the aim of helping others learn to creatively see and build their artful potential in the realm of photography. I am thrilled at the prospect of assisting you in your exploration of this beautiful art form.
