Learn the art of minimalism

Reignite your creativity with this easy to follow course.



In photography we strive to declutter our images. Anything that distracts from the intended subject must be pushed out of frame. In Finding Beauty, we push this concept to the max.

Welcome to the art of minimalism!

In this fun course you’ll learn how to simplify a scene to its very essence. In the process you’ll also find out how to create strong compositions.

The emphasis in this creative course is on composition.

Use any camera, even your phone. No post processing is necessary.


Capture a scene’s essence

Play with lines, shapes, colors, and textures.
Explore the possibilities each scene offers you.
Hone your skills by getting everything in-camera, and be free from post-processing.


“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” — Hans Hofmann
