Does this sound like you?

You own an amazing camera. Sometimes you get an amazing photo, sometimes… not so much. But even when they do come out well, you’re not entirely sure why.


Or maybe you are a small business owner, and you need to be generating images all the time of your products and your social media but you pick up the camera and the photos don’t appear? Not the way you want, anyway.


Well not anymore. If you are ready to master your camera, and finally get off auto mode. Then you are in the right place.

All you need for this course is a camera (a phone will also do but I would recommend a camera for maximum benefit) and a desire to learn how to take amazing pictures by getting off Auto Mode.

The course includes:

Module 1

The Exposure Triangle 

We will go back to basics and focus on the 3 elements of exposure - Aperture, Shutter speed, and ISO.

The goals of this module is

1. for you to have a basic understanding of the three sides of the triangle.

2. Start the process of camera familiarisation.

Module 4


In this module, I will go through all the equipment, lens, and the excessive amount of accessories out there. 

Explaining what they all do, why you need them, and also why you probably don't need them. 

The goal of this workshop is 

1. To give you references to review when you go to buy new gear

2. To demystify the equipment you do own and use

3. To prevent GAS - gear acquisition syndrome!

2. Have you comfortable using Aperture and Shutter mode on your camera.

Weekly Zoom Calls

Zoom Calls -Accountability and community

Aside from giving the basic knowledge, you need, I want to provide a community of support and accountability.

How many times have you started something and either got distracted or got overwhelmed and you never finished?

Well, I have designed this course to stop that loop. As a class, we will move through the material together, check-in with each other, and motivate each other to finish the course, and get everyone off Auto Mode.

Module 3

Composition Considerations

In this online module, all the basic concepts of composition will be covered. 

We will learn how to do a photo analysis, determining why you like and/or dislike photos. We will break photos down into their compositional parts and then learning how we can master composition so our photos really are eye-catching and effective.

A well-exposed shape image is only half of what it takes to make a strong photo. The composition is key to the other half.
