Welcome to

JARGON-FREE CAMERA TRAINING FOR BEGINNERS & BEYOND

You love taking pictures

so you've bought your

first 'serious' camera!

Congratulations!

That's a big step and often a hefty investment but it's the natural evolution from loving taking pictures with your phone.

You want this to be your hobby or even your new career, one day! You have an eye for a great picture; everyone tells you that. You long to get more creative and take spectacular images you can be super proud of.  Images you will hang on the wall with pride.

But you just don't know where to start!

The buttons and settings are just so confusing! So, you pop the camera onto auto mode, take a few disappointing images and wonder why you wasted all that money on a camera when you were getting better results with your phone.

You go online to search for the answers.

 

But trying to find information you want takes up way too much time and you get serious information overload!

 

You waste hours trying to learn techniques you don't really need, whilst you aren't sure you've got the basics right. 

Then what happens?

 

You get disheartened. You either shove your camera back in the box and let it gather dust or you muddle through, not really knowing what you are doing.

 

That sounds like a waste of your time and money to me.

You can!

What people are saying!

beginner photographer learning how to use camera

 I am a total beginner and was shooting on auto mode. Sarah went through the basics and made very thing make sense! I now feel I have the tools to explore shooting in manual and take better photographs. Sarah took the time to help tweak things to suit my camera. If you are thinking about doing it… Do it! You won’t regret it.

"After much searching I found The Photo Coach. I had never used a camera at that point and had no idea what to expect from it. The training was easy to follow gave step-by-step simple instructions as well as a group to join with Sarah on hand to help and answer any questions. Since doing the coaching I've been able to use my camera with confidence and upgrade it without worrying about not knowing how to use it. With The Photo Coach it's simple to learn any camera."

"I've loved this online course! It's been really nice to work through it in my own time and have all this information available to me to go back and recap any time. I feel much more confident in my understanding of how to use the camera on a manual setting, I just need to practice, practice, practice now! Sarah, you are a wonderful teacher, thank you.
