When are the calls? What if I can't make it live?

FAQ

Live calls will be held on Tuesdays at 1:00 est; from 4/2 through 5/28 (with no calls on 4/23 and 5/14). Showing up live means you get personalized support, but if you can't make it, the replay will be available! And, you can always ask questions in the private group if you couldn't ask live.

How long will I have access to the materials?

You'll have access to the private community and the call recordings until June 22. Any downloadable guides or resources will be yours forever!

Do I need a fancy camera?

You'll learn how to improve your photography skills with whatever camera- or phone- that you already have!
There is a specific masterclass that walks you through the ins and outs of using both an iPhone AND a manual camera, and throughout the course, you’ll see examples that are shown on both a phone and a manual camera. Please note that I’ve never used an Android, so I can’t help you with specific settings, but the general info will all still apply!


Do I have to buy expensive equipment or editing software?

The only thing you *have to have* is your phone or your camera, but there are a few other things that will make life easier. You may want to buy this additional equipment, but nothing is required. You'll get a recommended gear list in the course which has a wide range of price options, and we share TONS of low-budget DIY hacks.

This editing part of this course is taught using Adobe Lightroom Classic (which is the desktop version) and Lightroom Mobile. Classic is $9.99/month and Lightroom Mobile is free. I recommend signup up for a free 7-day trial when we get to the editing module! You'll also learn about free editing options if you don't want to use Lightroom!



I’m a ____fill in the blank____ , will this Program work for me?

If you sell some kind of product for your business and want to know how to take your own photos, then this program is for you! Most of the photo examples you see are products that can be placed on a table, but if you have a different type of product, we can give you other ideas, too!

Past cohorts have included yoga teachers, herbalists, flower farmers, professional organizers, antique collectors, and candle makers.




Last Question! Why is this better than just figuring out how to take pictures myself, or hiring a photographer?

Hiring a professional photographer for your photos is amazing! After all, Adrianna and I both offer this service.

However, for many makers, it might not be in your budget. A full product shoot with a pro usually starts around $1000, and you'd need to do that every time you have a new collection launch.

If you subscribe to my newsletter or follow me on Instagram you know I'm constantly posting tips and tricks. Yes, you could just take that or YouTube information, but imagine having it ALL in ONE place at your fingertips, along with the personalized feedback and support specific to YOUR business and products!
