In 2011, my wife, three daughters and I started on what would become a two-year journey across the United States. When we started our trip, we planned on using a curriculum designed by the state. We quickly learned there were far more effective ways of teaching that followed our journey, rather than a textbook. When we allowed our travels to dictate our “curriculum,” it made a profound impact on the way our daughters connected with the material. We used readings and lesson plans that aligned with our surroundings. If we were learning about the Oregon Trail, we would traverse the trail, visit museums, etc. This allowed what we were teaching to become tangible. Photography was a natural progression to capture our adventures and what we were learning. Over the course of our two years on the road, we took over 30,000 photos. Each week, we spent time looking through photos to post on our blog and discussed what made a photo good or bad, how we could salvage bad photos, what we could have done differently. My experience teaching photography on the road inspired me to spread the joy of experiential learning through CameraSim Pro and my associated curriculum.
I believe that photography should be taught in an experiential and immersive way. All of my lessons are paired with the CameraSim Pro photography simulator, so that you don’t have to travel the country or wait for the right weather to practice using a DSLR camera.
