    welcome to Clubsnap.

    the best and most economic way is to head down to our National Library to borrow some books, there are many titles, cover many subjects, from zero knowledge to amateurs to advance till professional levels.

    here are some which is very suitable for beginers.





    these topic are slightly more advance, when you want to try on event photography and they don't mind to be your guinea pigs.






    there are also books cover on food photography, but AFAIK, all are professional levels. it may be too hard for you to comprehend at this point of time.


    for long term education, I recommend you buy books by Bryan Peterson, these books are worth buying as you read again and again over the years.

    hope this help.

    Request to get a professional photographer. Why do you even accept such a request?
