ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE
FOR BEGINNERS

>>> Enrolment closes 15 October 2019 <<<

You sell products or services and you KNOW that you need striking imagery to attract customers to engage with your brand, and most importantly – buy your product!

This course is for you!

Learn how to use your camera on manual settings, position products, pose people, compose creatively, edit photos – the whole bang shoot!

is this for me?

You’re not a photographer, and you don’t have the budget to hire one every time you have a new product to add to your range.

The ‘powers that be’ say to post on social media every day, email your subscribers twice a week and blog once a week…but you can’t keep reusing the same old photos.

No one should have to see their sales suffer because of poor photography and you shouldn’t have to break the bank for a professional every two months either!

take control!

BETTER PHOTOS
ATTRACT CUSTOMERS
WHICH MEANS MORE SALES

I know what it’s like to go months without sharing a thing online, simply because you don’t feel your work is up to scratch.

The last thing you want to do is damage your brand by posting less than average photographs of your products.

I can teach you how to take beautiful photos, using the tools you have (phone or DSLR) so that you can post striking photos daily and attract more customers to your website.

TAKE BETTER PICTURES

in three easy steps

Register for the online beginner’s course

Spend a month with me perfecting your skills

Start sharing photos that you’re proud of

With outdated and bad quality photographs you lose customers.

After all, how can they buy what they don’t see? And if you do post a photo, will they choose to buy a product off a photograph that is poorly lit, badly styled and just generally bad quality? How many stock images can a potential client see on your Instagram feed before they stop looking?

Imagine what original content will look like on your feed.

Imagine how great your online store will look with better quality pictures.

Learn how to take better photos and start sharing images online that you’re proud to associate with your brand, and bring on the sales!

THIS IS FOR YOU IF

you answer yes

  • Your create products or own a store. You can’t wait 6 months for fresh images from a professional shoot.
  • Your products are bespoke (like cakes or jewellery) and as they’re made, they leave the studio. You need to take one quick but beautiful image before the client collects.
  • You run a service-based business and need fresh, original content that conveys your brand message for social media.
  • You are a self taught photographer and want to start charging for your time. You need to up your game.
  • You’re a blogger or influencer. You’re being paid to review a product and the client expects striking images to go along with those opinions.

THIS IS NOT FOR YOU IF

  • You’re a professional photographer with a lot of experience.
  • You know everything about your camera and what all the settings mean.
  • You’re not interested in learning about photography and would rather pay a professional (aka Derryn).

“Derryn showed me a few tricks on how to improve my photographs and now I am able to post photos of my wedding set ups on the day of the event and not when the photographer sends me the professional pics. I know more about angles, lighting, lines and perspective and the photos I take portray the true beauty of my events.”
