Get inspired to make your Instagram bloom

Starts Monday 4TH JULY 2016

Hi there. I’m Emily Quinton. I teach people to take beautiful photographs.

Instagram has become a huge part of my life and for the people I teach, Instagram is just as important for business.

I've grown my following by tens of thousands this year. Not with any tricks – just consistently planning, shooting and sharing beautiful images.

I want to help you to do the same and I can teach you simple, achievable ways to fit photography into your work and life that won't break the bank.


Beautify your Instagram

Join a two week class with lessons that will really help you to focus on your Instagram gallery. Then work on it in the company of other people in a supportive online community for the remainder of the month.

What have you been using your gallery for so far? Are there things you want to change? Can planning your images help you this year? Are you getting the best from your Smartphone? 

Make some time to learn some new skills and get planning the ways you are going to use and enjoy Instagram in 2016. 




The course will be taught through video lessons and written lessons, which you can take at any time to suit you.

You can take this course whatever timezone you are in and because of the social nature of the course I am sure you will even gain some new followers and friends from meeting your fellow students! 


Learn about what makes a beautiful image

  • Shooting in natural light
  • Composition and styling tips
  • Getting the best from your smartphone camera

Join a community of Encouraging learners

Learning with others is a joy. The Makelight community is welcoming and supportive. No matter your ability, you'll feel safe and encouraged to share those slightly imperfect photos in private.

We've learnt that feedback really helps, so Emily will reply to questions and provide feedback on the images you post in our private course Facebook group. You'll also get support from our small Makelight team if you're having any trouble. 

Emily will also hold two Live Q&A Sessions during the course. 

Following the course you will be able to join the main private Makelight Worldwide Facebook group where you can connect with Emily and other students whenever you want to.

Love for the Beautify experience

Doing Emily’s ‘Beautify your Instagram’ course was the best thing I could have ever done in January!

Emily was a generous and kind teacher, showing us everything from flow to how to shoot in natural light.

Since I’ve been on Emily’s course I’ve taken my Instagram account much more seriously. I’ve been meticulously planning each and every post making sure everything goes together and working really hard on it, and it’s become a joy and another creative outlet.

I feel like I’m curating my own private art gallery and my engagement and followers have increased already. Thank you Emily, I can’t wait to do another course with you :) xx

I thoroughly enjoyed the Beautify Your Instagram online course and learnt so much from Emily and the other students.

The lessons were easy to digest, inspiring and actionable and I’m thrilled with the improvement in my Instagram feed.

Since starting the course a couple of weeks ago I’ve gained over 100 new followers, had a new client enquiry directly from Instagram and seen the engagement with my posts significantly increase.

But beyond that I’m now more connected with my followers and have made genuine connections in the community. I’m also being more creative, enjoying experimenting with photography and I’m starting to feel very proud of my feed and how to use it for my business!
