I have been running my own business for 20 years and photography for the last 13.
I love business, sometimes more than photography.. I know! Crazy.
Recently I poked my head out of my bubble and realized there were all these photographers who were learning photography from people who were just learning it themselves. I'm not saying I know everything or that I'm perfect.
We are always learning.
What's awesome for you right now is - the equipment & technology is so much easier to use than it was when I started. You will excel at a faster rate!
The photography community is also nicer.. we didn't have it so easy back in the day.
I am very direct, honest & sarcastic.
I do not sugar coat things.
If you are looking for someone to tell you how amazing you are, I'm not it.
I want you to succeed in your business.
I understand what works for me, might not work for you & visa versa... so this "do it this way and only this way mentality is not what you will get here"
I am tough love.

Still learning photography and you need help figuring everything out? From how to shoot in manual, what light even means in photography. What is an F Stop even? Camera equipment to the computer equipment.. Where do I even start. Basically, how to use your camera to take better photos.
Whether you are a mom that wants to take better photos of your kids or an aspiring photographer, this might be the perfect way for you to learn.
We all have to start at the beginning. I remember when I first started, I had to read blogs over and over to figure out how to get that "blurry" background. I took my camera to my friends house and was shooting random things, excited to have found this information out.
Learn how to:
Shoot in Manual Mode
What Iso, Aperture, Shutter Speed is
How to Meter Properly
How to use your camera & not just push a button and hope for the best.
How light works to make your photos what they are.

In depth on learning Manual Mode & What everything means.
It's easy to get information all over the internet these days, from You Tube to TikTok and every place in between.
But, like I said up there, sometimes it's not the best. Maybe you have a ton of questions and little time to look every single question up and then figure out if it is correct. Or, you just can't learn that way.

The hardest part in photography is actually learning how to see colors. It's something that develops overtime or if you are lucky you already are good at it. Calibrated Monitors really come into play when you are editing your images. Finding your style editing is the 2nd hardest thing IMO ( and sometimes it changes over time) and of course the third would be posing!
