A learning & development option requested by photographers like you, for photographers like you.

The Premium Membership idea started with you, the community. You wanted more than the free content on YouTube, you wanted the opportunity to grow, progress, get feedback and more. You wanted to be the best photographer you could be, whilst being guided by Jess.

Premium Members of That Photography Spot (MTog’s) get more because they want it.

The aim: To create a positive movement from the That Photography Spot® community, enhancing each members photographic skill, technique and personal growth to empower them to do whatever they want to with their skills, whether that’s in business or pleasure.

Why join though?

Nobody HAS to become a member, but the members will always get more. On top of the regular free content, MTog’s are extra special because they also get:

  • Access to a private VIP Facebook Community
  • 1 x extended webinar per month (at least 1!)
  • 1 x quarterly digital magazine with the option to have a bi-annual magazine delivered to your door
  • 3 x free annual awards entries
  • Monthly Q&A time with Jess
  • At least 10% off all TPS shop items
  • Lifetime access to any enrolled courses
  • PS Actions/LR Presets of any technique covered
  • Bonus videos for personal & professional growth
  • Access to scaling certifications (the BTog, STog & GTog)
  • Membership & certification badges for marketing

And if that wasn’t enough, members also get first dibs on any and all new things. Sneaky little ones they are. That’s a combined value of at least £201.25 per month, without factoring in any MTog discounts on individual training and courses!

Why Jessica McGovern?

“Oh hey there, it’s me. I hate talking about myself like this but I think it is needed here and community member Susann Kostorz said I should. Why me? Here’s why, I…

  • believe sharing knowledge is VITAL for personal growth
  • achieved 28 Merits in one competition season
  • achieved 22 Finalists in the same season
  • won 4 Titles in the same season (2 international)
  • have taught photography successfully since 2014
  • am a fully qualified CIM Strategic Marketer
  • run 2 x successful businesses
  • am apparently an “influencer” with a freaking awesome community of legends, and if that isn’t enough then I don’t know what is

*also, I have a dry sense of humour that sometimes verges into the painfully sarcastic. Welcome and hi!”

The real question is:

How much do you want to grow?

We’ve listened and added WAY more on a rolling 30-day basis to give you more, if you want to grow more:

    This is an AMAZING resource for anyone wanting to improve their photography and editing skills. Jessica is very easy to follow, understand an best of all FUN! The complete edits offer a wide range of Lightroom and Photoshop techniques, which help encourage me to try them with my own editing. I HIGHLY recommend becoming a MTOG member and enroll in her classes…I was hesitant to spend that kind of money, but I’m here to tell you, it’s totally worth it. There is so much offered to members, you won’t be disappointed. The great community is a bonus.

  2. Rob Gale (verified owner)

    Being a MTog Member is almost like having Jess by your side with every photo shoot I do, the information she presents to the members are like secrets, you would only tell your best friend, which when applied, can take your work from ordinary to extraordinary.

  3. SUSAN TAIT (verified owner)

    I’m so pleased that I became a MTog member, this is such a fantastic community to be part of which has been brought together by Jess and her team. Jess is such an amazing teacher, she makes everything so easy to follow and with all her videos, webinars Q&A’s is so helpful and always willing to share her wealth of knowledge. I have learnt so much from Jess and know there is still so much more to learn. Not only does Jess bring so much information on a weekly basis via her video’s, she also makes it so much more personal by creating the Question and Answer meetings where again Jess will answer any questions we have. If you’re thinking about becoming a MTog member you definitely won’t be disappointed when you join…..

    As soon as this membership opened up I knew I had to join. It is an amazing group and you get SO much! It is like the YouTube but better!! Like with everything, you get so much more than what you think. I am loving being an MTog, I would definitely recommend it. Always learning something new too!

  5. Clara Allansson (verified owner)

    I highly recommend the MTOG membership. Jess and Dan always deliver above and beyond what is promised when you sign up and I’m always learning new things. They go the extra mile to make sure everyone is getting the help they need and that everyone is developing their skills. The deep critiques are amazing and the Facebook group is like a close-knit community.

  6. Barry Sedgwick (verified owner)

    mtog membership is hugely influential in my progression in photography .Jess really cares about our members and how she can help us progress. mtog is a really safe community, i feel i can ask anything .I highly recommend the membership to anyone who wants to be apart of the mtog family .

  7. Lynn Busse (verified owner)

    I can’t say how beneficial this membership is if you are wanting to improve your photography and editing skills. The content is plentiful and amazing. Jess is a wonderful instructor and mentor. I’m so glad I jumped on the opportunity to be a part of this community as soon as was it opened last year. I couldn’t ask for a better way to improve all of my skills as a photographer. Since joining I have started my own portrait photography business and I can’t wait to see what the future holds with Jess’s continuing support. Highly recommend!

  8. Lhanna Dickson (verified owner)

    This membership community is worth every penny and more. Being ran by photographer and marketing guru means you are learning from someone who is doing it everyday and can evidence that. Not only are you learning how to shoot and edit, but also getting advice on much more.

    The quality of the information provided is exemplary. Everything is beautiful; from the colours, to images to the writing style. Topics are so easy to find and it’s not annoying or clunky to navigate. It’s really professional and so clean.

    In the social media group, Jess is very present,, not passing it over to a team and gives really informative advice. It’s extremely welcoming and supportive; a must for anyone wanting to improve their hobby but also a must for anyone wanting to make their hobby and income source.
    It’s undoubtedly been the best investment I have made in my photography.
    Thank you team tog spot! ????

  9. Eduardo Angielczyk (verified owner)

    During the first lockdown I “met” Jess and was amazed about the quality and quantity of knowledge she shares.
    The moment I had the opportunity to become an MTOG member signed for the membership and feel that I am receiving even more than expected.
    Undoubtedly the best resource for those who are dedicated or love dog photography.

  10. Renate Zuidema (verified owner)

    The membership is just amazing! such a great community with very kind and helpfull people, where you can ask for CC without being burned to the ground.. that is for me just so important. next to that, all the info is sooo good and helpfull. i personaly as a premium+ member love the deep critique’s the most. I always learn alot from them. Jess is really good in explaining and teaching. Even for people who don’t have english as there 1 language, it is not to difficult to follow the tutorials and lessons.

  11. Jo Roach (verified owner)

    I am so thankful for Jess and the membership! I have had other photography memberships and this one is the best by far in the amount and quality of information that is provided. Jess does a great job of making the instruction easy to understand. She is very much involved in the membership group and she has created a very welcoming and supportive community. The Mtog support team is fantastic. You can tell that Jess really cares about helping her students to learn and excel. Jess has a great way of explaining how to make improvements to an image while building confidence in her students. I have learned so much and I am excited to learn more!

  12. Gemma Burden (verified owner)

    I am so pleased that I became a premium member, I have learnt so much and my photography has progressed massively. Jess is a fantastic teacher, and the whole community are so friendly and helpful. Premium members have access to so many resources, it really is worth every penny.

    Vous aimez la chaîne YouTube? Vous avez dévoré tous les vidéos? Vous allez adorez MTOG. Les nombreux tutoriels/webinars sont diversifiés, dynamiques et inspirants, le Q&A, la critique constructive d’image, le magazine, la retouche de photo live ( et bien plus), je ne peux plus m’en passer!

    Être membre m’a permis de renouer avec ma passion pour la photo, milieu que j’avais quitté et mis de coté avec l’arrivé du numérique. Avec les encouragements de Jess, je peux maintenant dire que je m’amuse dans photoshop, qui l’eu cru!! L’approche de Jess ( et son équipe) est personnalisée, le contenu de qualité, les conseils honnêtes: elle vous partage ses connaissances et son expérience, que vous soyez un photographe enthousiaste ou un pro, Chacun apprend à son rythme, selon ses intérêts , besoins et objectifs mais en s’amusant, yeah!

    Jess est un excellent professeur, humble, attentionnée , patiente et avec un super sens de l’humour. Elle souhaite notre succès et ne ménage pas ses efforts afin de nous permettre d’y arriver! Elle s’assure que tous que tous les membres se sente en confiance dans le groupe .

    N.B.: J’aimerais ajouter, que si parler en anglais vous terrifie, ce n’est pas un problème ici. Vous pouvez communiquer facilement et simplement par écrit ( pas besoin d’un diplôme en langue anglaise)!

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Title Goes Here

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

How long do I get access for?

Membership access rolls monthly in nearly all cases, so the second you join the community, your access begins. Everything you need will be on the Members Home Page, linked in the main menu above. You get access from this point onwards unless you decide to leave us, in which case your access will stop immediately.

It’s kind of that simple – you have access for as long as you want it!

How is the educational content delivered?

Yep, you guessed it, video. Monthly premium webinars are all recorded and uploaded to the Members Home Page. Additional educational content is also available in here, as well as your monthly critique if you choose to enter. 

You will need to be logged in with an active membership to access the Members Home Page though, so please triple-check that you are before you head over there!

Can I access past content?

Yes. Monthly webinars are available for at least 12 months in most cases but if the content is something particularly timeless, vital or otherwise, the content will remain indefinitely. We roll the content with the months to ensure membership is fair for every single member, old or new!

If you’re really stuck on something, just let us know and we’ll probably have a recording of that to hand that we can share with you 🙂

A magazine? What!?

Well, sometimes things are better if they’re in print. In the magazine, we’ll be preparing info-packed educational resources, interviews, news and behind the scenes bits into one volume every 3 months. The printed magazine will be posted to you, wherever you live in the world, and you don’t need to pay a penny extra for it.

As with all of our posted bits, please recycle the packaging and the item when you are confident you no longer need it.

Magazines are shipped out on standard economy shipping, please visit the book FAQs for more information on estimated shipping times.

What is a certification?

The certifications are benchmarks for standards within the community and they follow the tried and tested industry-wide process that every photography organisation has in place. They consist of a panel of images and a supporting photographers profile submitted at one of three levels, BTog, STog and GTog. Successful certification submissions are published on the Find a Photographer page for the general public to view, however, you can opt to have yours hidden if you prefer. 

Do I get direct access to Jess though?

Yep. The monthly Q&As are unrestricted time to jump in and ask questions. You can also submit questions in advance with supporting files if needed.

What are the in-depth critique things?

You may know of the monthly challenge over on YouTube which contain a short, brief critique of some of the entries. This is kind of like that, only more in-depth, focussed and directed to you as an individual in your stage of your own journey.

For example, you can opt to enter an image and receive feedback on it at one of the three certification levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. If you request Gold, for example, your image will be critiqued very firmly and strictly in line with both technical and competition points, in your own style of work.

In this way, members get the best critique possible for their work at the level they are working at or towards, and nothing else.

Deep Critiques are only available for Premium+ Members.

Can I switch from Premium+ to Premium (or visa versa)

Yes, if there are spaces in Premium+ you can upgrade from the Your Account page. If you want to downgrade from Premium+, provided your 3-month minimum membership is complete then you can also do this from the Your Account page too!
