Bite-size topics

Each lesson covers a very specific topic, so you can apply your new knowledge straight away and practise as you go.


You're a busy parent, you just want better photos quickly, right? All good - you won't be getting long theory lessons.

Mobiles welcome

Most parents want to capture everyday moments with their phone only - the tips take this into account.

Take photos
worth printing

This course was designed for parents for whom a professional photographer is perhaps a rare luxury, yet they want some standout photos.

Many parents have thousands of photos sitting, forgotten, on their cloud storage account. Often it’s because it’s tiring to go through many “so-so” pictures to choose what to frame or put into an album. So you keep putting it off…

The choice will be easier if you can take standout photos you LOVE in every way – and the grandparents will thank you, too.

plus a cheat sheet download for quick reference and recap.
