Celebrate each and every day in your life!
Ever wonder if the craziness of your life is, indeed, worth celebrating? The answer is a resounding YES!
Get ready to have fun creating lifestyle photos that you can’t wait to share with your friends and family.
This course focuses on the creative side of photography and will show you how to capture images of your everyday life that look like they came out of a glossy magazine.
You’ll learn my secrets and get plenty of creative inspiration.
Learn how to shoot from the heart
Each and every day you wake up, the world offers you much more than fresh coffee and tea — the world offers you a bounty of image making possibilities! Find out where to look and how to see and capture these amazing shots, including the beauty of simply pouring your cup of tea.
In Part 1 of this course I show you how to celebrate the moments of your life in your images and will encourage you to go out into the world to find new experiences to capture. I'll also gently nudge, poke and prod you to open up your eyes to see the potential shots waiting just for you.
You won't just develop an eye for taking good pictures, you'll learn how to put your heart and soul into your photography. By the end of this 4-week course, you’ll have a series of images showing another side of your life — one that you didn’t know was there. You’ll also see new photographic possibilities all around you, no matter what your skill level or camera you use!
All you need is...
Any kind of camera (phone, point & shoot, iPad, DSLR, or whatever) and an Internet connection.

GUIDED STUDY ECOURSE
The day this 4-week eCourse begins you'll be given access to the private class group on Facebook, which is where you will post your homework assignments for feedback. The private Facebook group is also the forum where you can ask questions as well as get to know others in the class. I visit the group at least twice a day Monday through Friday so your questions are answered in a timely manner.
In case you don't wish to be on Facebook, that's okay. In this case you'll email me your images and questions directly.
Each Friday you’ll receive an email reminding you to read/watch that week's material. You'll also be given an assignment, due 10 days later. Of course, if you just want to follow the class and not post homework, that's also okay.
Video image reviews are posted to an unlisted YouTube play-list for watching at your convenience. You'll also have access to the videos posted for your classmates so that you also learn from them.
