Discover photographic beauty everywhere

HOW TO SEE is structured to give you photographic inspiration and insights, and also practical hands-on assignments for you to start shooting more, whether at home, on the streets, and give you the opportunity to reflect on your photography.

Discover a unique perspective in your world

HOW TO SEE is your visual reset button– which will help you cultivate more of your child-like curiosity in your eyes.

HOW TO SEE will help you find beauty in the mundane, to find photographic inspiration anywhere and everywhere– whether at home, in the streets, and in the overlooked.

Uncover your best photographs


HOW TO SEE will teach you how to select your best photos to “keep” or “ditch” by analyzing the perspective, colors, shapes, forms, and textures of your photographs.

You will learn how to use the ‘small thumbnail test’ to effectively look through your images, and discover your golden needles in your photo haystack.

Read photos, don’t just see photos.

Not only that, but HOW TO SEE will teach you how to ‘read’ a photograph– how to dissect, analyze, and deconstruct images, in order to train your eyes, and also to help you choose your best images.

Make more dynamic compositions

If you want to discover the secrets of what makes a great composition, HOW TO SEE will challenge you to make more dynamic yet simple photographs, to better accentuate the drama and mood in your photographs.
