Let's start at the very beginning and help you establish a foundation for capturing beautiful photos. You’ll learn about the essential elements of good photography and how to shoot in manual mode.

This course is PERFECT for you if you're...

  • A new photographer, and you want to skip the years of frustration and trial and error and fast track your growth.
  • Still shooting in AUTO or a semi-automatic mode, and manual mode still scares you a little bit (or a lot!)
  • More experienced, but you still can't consistently get the results you want, and you're ready to take your photos to the next level.
  • You want to get great photos in camera, and stop spending hours trying to "save" photos in editing.
  • Excited to learn how to capture beautiful photos of life around you and people your love, whether that be children, families, seniors, maternity, engagement etc - either in candid documentary style, lifestyle or posed portraits.
  • Ready to learn a lifelong skill that you can use every single day to capture your everyday life and the world around you.

I personally cannot wait to guide you through the incredible journey of learning the beautiful art of photography!
