Basic to Brilliant and on-brand photography course title by Jane Mucklow of Picture Your Brand

 

 

The Basic to Brilliant photography course for business owners covers:

 

Your phone settings, how to use light and how photography works, all about composing your photos so they look better, and editing on your phone to enhance your images too. 

Plus lots of tips for taking all sorts of photos including products, flatlays, selfies and portraits, events, and various other behind the scenes pictures that you might need. 

Plus all about how to get your photos all on-brand, and how to plan and take a set of brand stock photos ready to use when you need. 

 

 

You know you need on-brand, beautiful photos for your social media posts, right?

That will capture attention, stop the scroll, appeal to your ideal clients, build your brand, get your audience to read your posts, engage with you, and then buy?!

 

…But are you secretly ashamed of your photos?

Do you wish you could make them look prettier?

Do you waste hours searching online for stock photos to use instead?

Or thinking that you really should pay a professional photographer to take lots of photos for you?

 

 

 

Fear not, I can help!

You don’t need to pay someone else, I can teach you to take brilliant photos yourself.  I can help you to improve your own photography skills, composing and editing skills too, to make them look prettier and more professional, and do all the things they need to.  Just on your phone too, no fancy camera needed!  (Although if you have one you can use that too).

“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).

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, which I have now had for seven years!  

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 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 8th March 2021, and running up to mid April.  You’ll have continued access to the videos and PDFs in your account in The Picture Your Brand Academy, and continued access to ask me questions in the course facebook group.

 

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 course is currently £347.00 as the early bird price, going up to £447.00 around a week before we start on March 8th.  (These prices are subject to change each time I run the course). 

You just need your mobile phone, assuming you can take photos on it!  Or any other tablet or camera.  I’ll be showing you how to edit on your existing camera app, instagram and the free app that I use, so no cost there.  There won’t be any requirement to purchase any further equipment either, although I will show you a few items that you might want to get at some point.
