I help makers and creative people learn to take beautiful photographs of their work.
The online world is getting more and more visual. People love using Instagram, Pinterest and Etsy to find people who inspire them with what they make.
Increasingly it seems that to get people to notice your work online, you need to be sharing great images.
You've spent hours making something beautiful. Yet when you go to share it online, the photos you take don't seem to get the reaction you'd hope they would.
My Photography for Makers course will help you to improve your photography, no matter what camera or phone you have. You'll come away able to create and share beautiful images that help you grow your audience and get attention for your work.
Through my online classes and workshops I've helped thousands of makers and creative people like you to improve their photography.
If there's one thing that I teach that I want everyone to realise, it's this:
If you put your efforts into telling a story over a long period of time, instead of just sharing one thing you've made, you'll see huge benefits.
So on my course, you'll hear a lot about "storytelling" through images. People love following the process!
We offer two levels for our Photography for Makers series. Immediately after this course finishes, our Level Two course starts. Interested in taking both together? We have an offer if you buy both at the same time.
Photography for Makers is a two week online course that will help you to focus on how to take great photographs that represent your creative work online.
This course will help you answer all of those questions and more.
During the course you receive a mixture of video lessons and written lessons, which you can take at any time of the day to suit you. There is no real-time requirement. The lessons stay online afterwards for you to watch again whenever you want.
You can take this course whatever timezone you are in too. People from all over the world take Makelight courses – that's wonderful in itself!
When you sign up to the class, if you have an Instagram account, you'll receive a beautiful visual report of your colour palette and themes that run through your images.
We call this tool Makelight Insights, and you can use it to understand the themes and colours that people enjoy most about your Instagram account.
We open a Facebook Group open for every Makelight class. It's amazing to see so many friendships form as a result!
Afterwards you can join the main private Makelight Worldwide Facebook Group.
You'll become part of a worldwide community of inspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners and independent makers.
