Take images that make people say I WANT THAT ART!

During this course you’ll take your shots from average to awesome, whether you’re photographing paintings, jewelry, fiber art, sculpture, glass art, ceramic, mosaic, or other fine art form.

You’ll learn how to take photos that capture the essence of your art. You’ll also learn how to curate those images and how to craft a visual story for use in magazines and other publications.

You’ll be amazed at how much you can do with your images, including how to attract more business to you. And that's just the start!

 


Images taken by students of their art

These images were taken during the Guided Study eCourse. Because each student gets personalized feedback, growth is pretty darn quick!


More than 50 artists have worked with me in the Guided Study eCourse. Here's what some had to say.

"Brit Hammer – you rock! I amazed myself with the results. Brit’s teaching style and critiques enabled me to grow my photography skills in leaps and bounds. Her advice to ‘get it right in the camera’ has changed the way I approach documenting my work. My vignettes have always told a story, but photographing them with that story in mind was new to me. I was able to capture the whimsy in my work in a 2D form. When I download new photos, I feel pure joy as the images appear. Taking your class was probably the best single thing I did for my business." — Sue McNenly

"Before taking Photographing Fine Art & Craft, I used to waste hours taking uninteresting pictures. My camera was an endless source of frustration. The course made me appreciate that taking a photo was an extension of the creative act of making the piece. Brit took the time to find out what I wanted to say in my photos and helped me get there. My camera is no longer a mystery. I can work quickly and produce images that express the vitality and spirit of my work. This is hugely empowering as so much of our work is judged on the quality of our images. Photographing Fine Art & Craft is a superlative course taught by a superlative teacher." — Christine Dumont

What you will need

  • DSLR camera (preferable)
  • Wall or table
  • Editing software (Lightroom, Photoshop recommended)
  • Artwork

NB: Yes, it's okay to take this course with a "point & shoot" camera, but you'll have more creative control of your images with a DSLR or micro four-thirds camera that allows you to control aperture. You'll also be able to do more with the images afterwards in terms of post-production if you can shoot RAW, instead of just JPG.

I recommend using a DSLR that allows you to shoot tethered while in live-view, such as the Canon Rebel T3i or T4i, especially if you're going to shoot jewelry. My favorite point & shoot camera is the Sony RX-100iii -- it shoots RAW and in full-manual mode.

During this course you will learn

  • How to create dynamic images that engage & attract clients
  • How to create both jury and editorial images
  • How to tell a story with an image
  • How to curate a collection of images & create a photo essay
  • How to create images expressing your brand
  • Basic & advanced lighting techniques
  • Basic & advanced post-processing techniques

How the eCourse works

SELF-STUDY ECOURSE (DIY)

Assignments are given at the end of each of the four sections of the eBook to help get you started. You can then work at your own pace.

**If at any time you decide that you want to upgrade to the "Guided Study" or "Guided Study + Mentorship" eCourse, just email me with the course date & package you want. You'll get US$ 50 off registration for the new package.

GUIDED STUDY ECOURSE

The day this 4-week eCourse begins you'll be given access to the Photographing Fine Art & Craft group on Facebook where you will post your homework assignments for feedback and ask questions. I visit the group at least twice a day Monday through Friday so your questions are answered in a timely manner.

Each Monday you’ll receive an email reminding you to read/watch that week's material. You'll also be given an assignment due the following Monday. Of course, if you just want to follow the class and not post homework, that's also okay.

GUIDED STUDY ECOURSE + MENTORSHIP

This package includes a 45-minute one-on-one private session at a reduced rate. You can schedule it at any time during the eCourse to talk about any topic. We'll talk by phone or Skype and you can record our conversation. To get the most out of your private session, I suggest you wait until you're at least halfway through the eCourse.


Your extra gift just for signing up

Just to celebrate how much fun we're going to have in this course, you'll also receive a 20% discount on ALL my eBooks after registration.
