Learn how to use your camera
free mini course
Did you just get a camera and are overwhelmed by all the buttons so you’ve stayed on auto mode, (making it basically just a point-and-shoot camera)? Do you get frustrated and feel like your camera is working against you?
Ever want your photos to just
come out the way you want them to?!?
I get it
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about your camera and photography, then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been teaching photography since 2006 (that’s over 15 years) and I have learned plenty in that time. I started out as a part-time secondary photography teacher and at the same time quickly turned a tiny side hustle as a wedding and portrait photographer into a successful full-time business. Once I went full time with teaching I continued my photography business (if you’re following the timeline you realize that I have 2 full time jobs now) so my photo knowledge is both in the classroom and in real-life application.
I started this site and blog to share all my knowledge with readers like you! It has allowed me a place to encourage novice photographers to find a way to explore their artistic vision and with photographers who want to start to make money with their photos by way of a new business.
the free mini course
With this in mind, I created a 6-day entirely free email course. I show you exactly how to use other options on your camera instead of the automatic or program modes (it’s easy – trust me!) to create the images you’ve always dreamed of. I don’t get into manual mode in this quick course, but with a few different tweaks (i.e. different shooting modes) you’ll already start to see results with your camera that you didn’t think possible.
Introduction to shutter priority mode
Introduction to aperture priority mode
How to determine which setting to use
How to capture more advanced movement
How to make your portraits look professional
Troubleshooting common problems

I’m obsessed with HGTV home shows, the scent of french lavender, and traveling to all the places. I’ve been a professional photographer for the last 15 years, and I’ve spent much of that time also teaching photography in a high school classroom. I have a passion for helping people find their voice with photography so they can make their camera work for them—either by running a business or just by finding joy in the process of creating.
