Hear What Photographers Have to Say...


"I have been involved in photography for several years now and recently stumbled across this course, honestly with some reservations as I have been down this road before. I have searched YouTube, several paid courses, invested further into fancy gear always seeking a better look for my photography. I wish I had found Amanda's course sooner. The difference of my work between before the course and after is night and day. I though I needed better lenses or expensive models to get the results I am getting now.  I have invested in something that has really paid off!"

Frank B

"I have been following Amanda for some time now on Instagram as I found her work as inspiration for my portrait sessions. I did not realize how simple adjustments in posing can make all the difference in a photo. I never thought I could create portraits like I am getting now and have the techniques to create my own inspiration."

Kelley M

"Being somewhat newer to photography, I did not know if this course was for me and I doubted if I had what it takes to get results like that. After taking the course I am getting a lot of attention from my work, both on social media and paid work. This started out as just a hobby and now things are moving fast for me and it's getting very exciting. Thanks for the simple approach, a nicely laid out course and the care to make this available!"
