What’s included in the course?
Four live online sessions with a professional photographer
Learn everything about the use of color and light, about composition and on how to communicate emotion with photography. We support you at every step, so that you can go out on the field, take your amazing photos and have lots of fun in what you do!
Helpful exercises with customized feedback
During the calls with the photographer you learn about the theory with plenty of examples, but the best part comes after the live calls. You get to take your camera and go out in your favorite places to take photos. We give you helpful exercises to easily put the theory in practice, then you can share your work and you receive customized feedback on your photos during the following call.

All the live Zoom sessions will be recorded, so that you can review what we shared as many times as you want and listen to the feedback in order to capture all the details.

How does this program unfold?
- The course is easy and accessible as it is offered through live calls on Zoom or Facebook
- The photographer can give you direct customized feedback and you can ask all the questions you want
- You will be given some exercises so you can practice what you have learned between the calls.
Photography is like a language, you can’t learn to speak a language by just reading books or watch videos! You need to get out there, take your own photos and practice by making mistakes, and learn from them until you speak the language of photography more fluently.
In our program, you can post your photos in our private Facebook group to show your progress and share it with the other group members. During the live calls the photographer will discuss some of the photos, so everyone can benefit from the feedback and learn more.
Photography literally means ‘writing with light’. So you need to know about light and how it affects your photos. Understanding light helps you to make more beautiful photos, but also it allows you to develop broader skills that you can use in whatever you do in your life: you will get more awareness on who you are, on what matters to you, on how you can highlight your abilities and your talents, and be more focused on your goals. And you can apply it to your business or your profession.
Just great light does not make a great photo yet. A great photo also needs a great composition. This is probably the biggest challenge in photography, but when you get that right, it is probably the most rewarding part. When light and composition come together, be ready for some really special photos.
YOU CAN GET THERE WITH US!
Photos show emotion(s). There are different ways to communicate emotions in a photo, and we will touch on this in the course. Letting emotion entering your photos makes them more beautiful, more interesting and special. The best part of taking photos with emotion is that you experience the emotion first, while you take the photo. And sharing it with others is a journey that will open up new perspectives in what you do.
The course develops in four online live Zoom sessions of 90 minutes each.
The whole program will be completed in about two months
The 4 live sessions:
The first online session is an introductory one, during which we will talk about light. Without light there won’t be any photos! And no ‘photo – graphy’ at all! At the end of the call you will receive an exercise to play on your own with light in your photos.
The second online session will be about composition. How can you arrange the elements in your photos to create an impact? Again, you will get an assignment to practice and have fun with some of the composition guidelines, so you will train your eye to ‘see’ the composition.
The third online session is about mood and emotion in photography. Now that you know how to compose a photo and how to use the light, you can use your skills to communicate with your photos. Also after the last call you get an assignment to practice the new gained knowledge.
The fourth and last online session is to wrap up and discuss some of the photos of the last assignment, to share our achievements and to celebrate our journey.
The whole program will be completed in about two months, so that you have enough time between the sessions to complete your practice with the assignments, to integrate the feedback and… to have fun. At the same time, we do our best to let you keep going, learn and let your skills flourish!JOIN NOW
