A photography tutorial website has been a hit with subscribers due to its fast and easy to understand approach. The Five Minute Photographer offers photographers quick, five minute tutorials that help photographers understand photography using visual references to explain techniques. I came up with the idea after an unexpected response to his YouTube tutorial on depth of field. "When the numbers went beyond 100 000 hits, I couldn't believe it!" he said. "But I also realised from their comments that there was a place for this kind of teaching."
The Five Minute Photographer also hosts an open forum for members who can ask questions and receive answers from accomplished photographers from different locations. Also, well written articles can be accessed on a variety of subjects. Video tutorials and articles are constantly being added and the forum is alive with interchange.
Here is what some of the site's subscribers have already said about Shelton Muller's teaching style and the benefits of The Five Minute Photographer...
"Shelton Muller's engaging and informed presentation makes all those wonderful images look so easy. With a lightness and humour that makes everything much more fun, he brings his years of experience as a working photographer and photo journalist to easy-to-learn material that will bring new creativity to your pictures. Having worked with him for more than 15 years, I can thoroughly recommend him as a first rate teacher, who makes learning a complete joy , and always helps you get more from your pictures." - John Swainston - Maxwell International Australia Pty.

"Five Minute Photographer is one of those sites that you can't help but keep visiting. I find myself drawn to it on a daily basis to read the forums and see what new articles and videos have been uploaded. I love the short informative approach that Shelton has achieved with the five minute video tutorials. If you are looking for an idea on how to achieve a particular photographic technique or simply want some inspiration from a thorough, highly knowledgeable master of his craft look no further than Shelton and Five Minute Photographer." -Berk McGowan
"Shelton Muller would have to be the most energetic and entertaining teacher I have ever had the pleasure to learn from. He has an uncanny knack of making subjects I thought were difficult to get my "head around" a breeze to learn. He teaches with a level of energy and enthusiasm I have never encountered before. There is so much information "out there" about photography it becomes confusing - Shelton has taken the "confusion" out of it all for me on several points. I have learnt a great deal from Shelton and I look forward to learning much more. Thanks for making it easy Shelton!" - Sharon Mahoney
"I have known Shelton for several years and attended several workshops with him, inspiring me and teaching me how to do and see better - and it has worked. My photography, and my ability to see light, composition, and all related matters has improved markedly with his tutelage. I term Shelton my invisible mentor.Already, The Five Minute Photographer website, with it’s video and written tutorials, have made me think more about my photography.Shelton’s method of teaching with demonstration, humour, and his ability to share, make him stand above his peers.” - Graham Anderson
