A brand new course for your significant other

Hi, I'm Emily. It constantly amazes me that thanks to modern technology it's now possible to make a living from your passion.

With Instagram, Pinterest and blogging, sharing what you love with the world can be a great way to bring in a little extra income, or even to start a business – like we have with Makelight!

But I’m sure you know the rolling eyes you sometimes get from your loved ones when you’re there arranging a flat-lay, or getting a shot just right for Instagram. What is she up to?

So we’ve put together a brand new Makelight course, this time… for your significant other!



the online photography course
for your significant other


We’ve designed a take-when-you-can course for all those Instagram husbands, boyfriends and significant others. Working together you can make amazing images – that's how we've built up a following of almost 500,000 people across Instagram and Pinterest. 

Here's looking at you

Having great images of you for your own Instagram is super important, and sure, you can go a long way with a selfie or two. Take things a little further by getting your partner involved by helping them learn how to take a great photo of you.

Imagine looking back in future years, and all those photos of you in your album look great as well as being memorable.


Make a story together

We're going to get hands-on with creating beautiful backgrounds you can use around the home to photograph flat-lays on, set up a simple mini-studio and lots more.

A great gift idea for your other half, this course is going to teach them. Here's what we'll be covering:

  • Projects you can do together
  • How to make your loved one look great in a photo
  • How to set up a mini studio
  • Crafting great backgrounds for flat lays
  • Composition
  • Shooting in natural light
  • Getting involved in the styling process
  • Getting the best from a smartphone camera
  • Editing and archiving photographs

How it works

Wherever you are in the world, you and your partner can fit this in to your busy lives.

You'll receive a gift card with instructions on how to sign up, and once your partner is looking to start, you'll both receive a link to a private area on our website containing lessons and projects to do together. 

That means you can take the course at your own pace, catch up at weekends if you need to, and have conversations at a time that fits in with your life.

We also have live Q&A sessions and we time them to fit when is best for the group, depending on time zones. All the Q&As are available to watch afterwards too.
