"I have enjoyed so much taking this course. Not only does Emma explain every technical aspect with concise and clear videos, but also she guides you in how to use it in blogging. I have learned for example better ways to improve my social media accounts, or my branding image. This is one of the best online courses I have taken. I truly recommend it if you want to take your blog to the next level." Christina

All the questions I've ever been asked
How long can I keep the videos?
All the videos, worksheets and quizzes are yours to keep. The course is designed to be completed over 4 weeks, at a rate of 3 lessons a week, but you can work at your own faster or slower pace if preferred.
Do I need a DSLR?
You need a camera where you can change the aperture and the shutter speed.
A DSLR is great, but you can also use a bridge camera or a mirrorless camera. If you just use a phone or a point-and-shoot, this course is not for you.
What standard of photography should I be?
If you can comfortably shoot on manual mode, this course is too basic for you. The photography part of the course is aimed at beginner photographers who want to learn how to use their DSLR.
What about the blogging part of the course?
I'm assuming you want more readers, and that is what the blogging aspects of the course cover - how to use your images to stand out online.
How much time will it take?
It'll probably take you an hour each week to watch the videos, but that isn't going to turn you into a master photographer. It's the practice that will get you there.
This course will take away all the decision making that's been stopping you making a start with your photography. All you have to do is the one thing that I teach you in each lesson, nothing else. Practise it, understand it, share it - and then do the next lesson.
Bottom line - if you can't set aside 3 hours each week to practice, you might not be ready for this particular course.
Do I need a blog?
Yes. You need to have (or be wanting to have in the near future) a lifestyle blog.
Is the course only for lifestyle bloggers?
Yes. All the examples and blogging advice are aimed at lifestyle bloggers and their priorities. Other bloggers are welcome, but don't expect fashion photography or close-up beauty blogging advice.
What do you mean by lifestyle blog?
Family, craft, travel, design, personal (diary).
What if I don't like the course?
Just tell me in an email, and I'll refund the full amount paid. No questions, and we'll stay friends.
Why do you offer that guarantee?
Because I know how hard it is to buy a course online - you don't really know what you're getting. And if you open it up and decide it's too easy, or too hard, or the focus is wrong, or you don't like my videos, then just email me for a refund.
I don't want anyone in my life to be annoyed or disappointed if there's anything I can do about it - life's to short.
