Before & After Examples

These photos are comparisons, showing the kinds of photos you (might) be taking now, compared to the kinds of photos you could be taking by the end of the course. Not in terms of editing, because the editing on these photos is quite basic, and able to be done on most programs, but in terms of the behind-the-camera elements of the images. Some photos have been submitted by students.

What our students are saying


Yes! Maybe even moreso than if you have a fancy camera! Because there are some limitations when using phone cameras, knowing about using natural light, composing your scene, getting the right perspective, and even basic editing techniques will be much more important in creating stunning photos.

Definitely. I cover the most important camera settings in the course, from focus settings to getting off auto or priority modes, and into manual mode for complete control.

Yes! There are suggestions and advice for dogs without a stay and puppies, as well as a complete “stay” lesson and a bonus lesson to edit out a leash, just incase you need to leave your pup on leash.

Actually I’ve never been asked this but I’m pre-empting the question. Of course you can! Many (if not all) of the concepts apply to other animals. Using natural light, perspective, composition, even getting expression, can be applied to the majority of our animal companions.

Maybe not snakes.

Or turtles.

I designed this course with you in mind.

I wanted to take some of the most common mistakes I was seeing from the photos my friends were posting on Facebook and fix them. Without you having to buy a new camera, or spend hours editing. Actionable information which will improve photos taken with any camera or phone, with any pet, and minimal editing.
As a former primary school teacher, I know how important it is to have a solid foundation in the fundamentals. This course covers how to use natural light, composition, choosing a location and capturing expression, all of which even the best editing in the world probably can’t fix. But, because our images are rarely perfect straight out of camera, there’s even some editing lessons which you can do on any free app or program, to help you get started.

And I know I could show you hundreds of examples of much more fancy, stunning photos that I’ve taken… but that isn’t the point here. The point is mastering some foundation skills, to drastically improve your images.
