Learn Photography with Lenscraft
Dedicated to helping enthusiasts everywhere learn photography and improve their image editing skills.
My name's Robin Whalley and I’m a UK Landscape Photographer. When I first became interested in photography, almost two decades ago, I was frustrated by the lack of information. I wanted to progress quickly but everyone who I thought was taking great pictures kept their secrets, well secret. That’s when I decided to study everything I could find about photography and image editing. I also made myself a promise, which was to ‘share what I learn and learn what I don’t know’. It's what's made me a better photographer.
Today, my photography has improved immensely and so too has my understanding of how to help other photographers do the same. That’s why I created Lenscraft, a free resource for enthusiast photographers everywhere. If you’re keen to learn photography and want to progress beyond the basics, you have arrived at the right site.
