Your Instructor

Hi I'm your instructor at Creative Photography School, my name is Simon Bond. I'm an experienced photographer currently based in South Korea, but I'm from the U.K.

My signature style of photography is with the Lensball, though when I started taking photos with this it was but a humble crystal ball. I've written many articles for this website, and other websites like Digital Photography School. Here you'll find a collection of these, and I hope they're a useful resource for your photography.
