ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE
FOR BEGINNERS

Learning how to take photos, is learning how to observe life. 

Photography is an art form which has become accessible to us all. We no longer have to rely on an annual family portrait session to document our lives. 

With affordable SLRs and handy smart phones, we can capture daily precious moments and have them on record forever.

Don’t let another precious moment slip away.

is this for me?

You love taking photos.

Your phone memory is constantly full because you’re always snapping away.

Using your phone is great for every day candid shots, but you’re looking for more. 

You want to create photos, not just take them.

You want to learn how to use your camera on manual settings, compose creatively, edit photos – all so that you can capture the beauty that surrounds you.

Freeze time

MEMORIES FADE
PHOTOS REMAIN.

Do you ever look at the special people in your life and just wish you could freeze  time?

I see photos of my three-year-old and am so grateful for the gift of photography.

I know that I can’t possibly remember all the special times, but having photos of our daily lives makes it a hang of a lot easier.

TAKE BETTER PICTURES

WITHOUT BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY KNOWLEDGE, YOUR PHONE WILL BE FLOODED WITH AVERAGE PHOTOS.

Do you ever go through your phone photos and wonder what the heck you’ll do with all of them? There are thousands, right?

Most people leave them there, and never look at them again. 

Imagine PRINTING PHOTOS OF YOUR SPECIAL MOMENTS AND DISPLAYING THEM ON YOUR WALLS.

Learning to see moments and take shoot creatively, will allow you to take photos that stand out from the rest. Take your photos from average to great and start printing photos that you’re proud of.

CELEBRATE THOSE SPECIAL MEMORIES!

THIS IS FOR YOU IF

you answer yes

  • You enjoy taking photographs
  • You feel the need to capture and remember special moments, people and things
  • You're bored with the average photos you have been taking and feel ready to photograph creatively.
  • You enjoy learning
  • You want to develop your artist's eye
  • You're ready to begin taking photos that are worth framing and disaplying

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 to take photos of your family (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.”
