We are a team of passionate photographers who decided to start this blog because we want to share our love for photography with others.
At Photo-seminars, you will find various articles on numerous topics and themes related to photography – whether it’s how an amateur can take great shots like professionals or what gear they should invest in early on as part of getting into the field!
Photography is an art form that has been pursued by many today. While some take it up just as a hobby or passion, others become professionals in the field of photography and aim to capture beauty no matter how mundane or prolific their subject/object being captured may be.
However, without knowledge on technicalities like which camera works best for specific types of photos; A photographer will never fully grasp what they’re trying so hard at achieving – Artistry! Afterall, the hardware should not hold back creativity.
This is where we come in to help fellow photographers educate themselves and learn about various topics and updated news on cameras and photography. Now and then, we also put up articles on some renowned photographers belonging to the past as well as contemporary times.
Our mission at Photo-seminars is to create a space where people can learn more about photography to have memories captured forever with their creative vision generated from an understanding of what makes good pictures successful or exciting.
To start with, you need the proper Photography hardware. We realize how confusing it might seem when there are hundreds upon thousands of available products out there- thus, narrowing them down by category helps ensure that you can find a product that’s best for your need.
Photo-seminars is a platform created by photographers for photographers and anyone interested in getting started with their first camera. From our founders to our amazing writers – here’s the team that makes it all happen.
Mathew Daly | Co-founder
Our first founder is Mathew Daly, a 32-year-old from Boston. Mathew has been intrigued by photography from an early age ever since he was given his first camera. He would go around, capturing the most mundane objects in the neighborhood or at home. He received many awards for his exceptional talent in photography which his teachers noticed.
Mathew’s family was always supportive of this passion as a hobby but never as a profession. This made Mathew study economics in college instead of learning photography.
However, he did join the photography club where he met the second founder – Marco. Together, the two inspired each other to pursue their love for art, and they captured some beautiful shots during their college years.
Mathew took up a job at a corporate firm after graduation, but he never really gave up on the thought of doing something with photography. Then, at a college reunion, he met his erstwhile partner in crime, and together they decided to start a website for other photographers, so Photo-seminars.com was born.
Marco Downs | Co-founder
Marco Downs is our second founder and we call him the creative head of this page. This is so because Marco is always brewing new creative ideas for the website and his suggestions are what makes the website look so appealing. Marco Downs was a classmate of Mathew’s and their friendship goes way back to the time spent in college together.
Marco stumbled upon photography only in college when he joined the photography club. His parents could never afford a camera for him as a child and it was in college that he saved up and bought his first camera. This opened up a whole new world for him and he soon realized that photography is something he would wish to pursue in the future.
When he met Mathew at a college reunion, they discussed about the challenges they had with picking the right camera when they got into Photography the first time. He was fascinated by the idea of creating a website to provide helpful guides as well as other information on photography. He had f
Amanda Taylor | Co-founder
Lastly, we come to the third founder of Photo-seminars – Amanda , a 26-year old graduate from Boston University. Amanda has always been excellent at academics, and her passion for photography made her decide to pursue a Photography degree.
While Mathew and Marco introduced hardware guides, Amanda and her interest in the history of photography drove her to incorporate historical articles on the website. According to her, we cannot speak of photography in the present without acknowledging photographers’ works in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Most photographers are hardly aware of these pioneers’ efforts and the beautiful art they created under the harshest historical circumstances. Her sole aim is to put across this valuable information to fellow photographers.
She thinks that only by appreciating or even criticizing past photography can we achieve progress in the present. Amanda continues to work on her research, and her data often sparks ideas for articles for the website.
