“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned a lot, especially features and settings on my phone that I never knew about.  Jane’s instruction was very clear and easy to follow. The group energy was great too, lots of support and encouragement when sharing photos etc.  I now consider things such as light and alignment when taking photos, not just point and shoot and hope for the best!  I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to take better photos whether it’s for business or pleasure.  Thank you Jane” – Sarah (Sarah Howard, Reflexology, Therapeutic Massage, aromatherapy products).

 


headshot example photo by Jane Mucklow“Thoroughly enjoyed Jane’s photography course my skills were severely lacking and anyone with their own business needs to have a presence on Social Media but bad photos just aren’t a good look!  Jane gave so many tips that really made a difference, including functions I didn’t know were available on my mobile camera.  Positioning and lighting make such a difference for a start and the slider function is now in use.  Information is given in bite size chunks so anyone can keep up, the Facebooks Lives were great and we had a lovely sense of a group from all different businesses sharing photos which made you want to join in. Such a plus for personal shots too, I am no longer ashamed of my efforts!  Thanks Jane, it was great” – Clare (Clare Summerton, Forever Living aloe vera products).

** Do you have a family stuck at home too?  If your children need something to do over the next few weeks, take a look at my new course, Ordinary to Awesome, a beginners online photography course for children and families to do.  Also just with a phone, but tablets and cameras can be used too. 

If you are interested in both, let me know as I’ll give you a code to take a further 25% off the second course due to the overlap in material. **

So who’s teaching you all this?!

Headshot photo of Jane Mucklow by Solight Photography

Hello!  I’m Jane, a branding photographer based in Kent, UK.  I have been taking photos since I was at least seven, when my favourite birthday present was my first camera!  My first proper job was in a picture library, selling photographs – but I soon realised that I wanted to be the one taking them, so I found some evening classes and got learning properly.  Then followed nearly a decade of photographing for other companies, before children, and redundancy, led me to starting my own photography business. 

I love meeting and photographing other amazing business owners, and creating them beautiful story-telling imagery that will build their stand-out brand and grow their business.  And I’ve also discovered that I love teaching photography too!  So let’s have fun sorting out and super-charging your social media photos 🙂 

 

 

I don’t sell products, can I still do the course?

Yes!  Almost all of the course will still be really relevant.  In fact, without products to photograph and share all the time, this course will help you to see all the other photos that you can take and share from behind the scenes of your business, so your customers can really get to know you.

 

 

How long does the course take?

The live element of the course will take place over six weeks, starting on Monday 20th April. 

 

Do I have to finish it by then?

After the end of the six weeks you’ll still have access to the pdfs that I will send each week, so you can keep referring back to all the info.  You’ll still be able to ask questions in the facebook group too.  And you can follow along with future courses too for any re-fresh that you need.

 

 

How much does it cost?

The investment for the next round of the course is £249.00. 

** The next course is planned to begin in the Autumn of 2020.  Sign up to the waiting list to hear first when bookings open, and for an exclusive offer. **

It will be the fourth time round, so all the material has been tested, improved and expanded since the first one!  You get all the pdfs from the course to  keep and refer back to.  Plus you’re welcome to stay in the private facebook group to ask any further questions, and to follow along with future courses too. 

You’ll learn how to take better photos for your business, but also for any photos that you take for yourself too!
