Alex Vita

Written specifically for photographers, by an experienced web-designer working exclusively with photographers!

Hi, I'm Alex Vita. I build photo websites & write a ton of educational content on the same topic here on ForegroundWeb and my newsletter.

I'm launching this course because I want to show how blogging is a fantastic tool for photographers to grow their business. And because I want to solve the common "I don't know what to write about" problem.

After having worked with hundreds of photographers around the world, I can immediately spot an opportunity lost when I see them not actively blogging. And I understand where photographers get stuck in the process and how they can use a blog to grow their business.
