Online Photographers Training
Reach your potential from the comfort of your own home.
Spaces are released every week in a rolling month-by-month format.
If the calendar below doesn’t allow you to select a date or change months, it is because all future one-to-one spaces are booked out. In peak season for workshops and speaking internationally, spaces are fewer and as such there can be long waits for the next rolling opening to show. If you check back here on Friday evenings, the next available Friday’s space may have opened up.
About the one-to-one range:
Whether you are brand new to Adobe Lightroom Classic or you’re looking to up-skill your workflow in Adobe Photoshop, if you have a laptop and are ready to improve, we’ll probably work well together!
To complete these sessions, you’ll need a laptop, Adobe programs (Lightroom Classic and/or Photoshop), a reliable internet connection and a RAW file that is technically sound (sharp in the right places!).
We’ll connect initially on Zoom and then you’ll allow Jess to have remote access to your computer via Teamviewer (also free). This allows us to very quickly and very easily control your screen to show you a particular tool or technique instead of continually saying “up a bit, a bit more, to the left” on repeat!
By the end of an editing session, you will have, completely solo, completed specific editing techniques to add dimension, flair and finesse to your own work. You can opt instead for Jess to work on your file whilst you take notes, it’s up to you!
“I’ve used Photoshop for 12 years, Lightroom for over 7 years and edit most days of the week in some way, shape or form! I have great success using this format for editing tuition online!”
Editing one-to-one results below. 1hr. RAW to jaw-dropping!
An enormous field to cover but in brief, individuals usually choose this option if they are starting a photography business and want to get off the ground well, or if they have an existing photography business that isn’t performing particularly well.
Usually, we cover business structure, pricing, IPS, marketing, SEO, social media, portfolio reviews/strategies for growth and product choices, but really this can be anything you need it to be.
“As well as having operated a successful photography business for over 6 years, I also handily have a CIM Dip in Strategic Marketing and regularly work on both small and international scale marketing and strategic business projects for both photography and non-photography businesses.
The largest budget I’ve ever personally managed for a single campaign is £250,000. Return on investment and profitability for you is a priority for me.”
Portfolio Review (Deep Critique) One-to-Ones
Whether your goals are to take amazing photographs of your children or to win an international photography title, this one-to-one option has the capacity to give you specific, actionable pointers of what you can improve to get to the next step.
Usually, we look at your portfolio or the results of a single shoot – a collection of images (10 minimum, no maximum!) – and critically assess them against each other and your goals. The images could be RAW files, finished pieces or something different entirely.
This isn’t always an easy listen, but if you come in with an open mind and grit to improve, you’ll take more away from this one to one option than probably any other. Remember, Jess will be honest and frank – prep yourself with a notepad and pen beforehand.
“Although not a seasoned print comper, I’ve had a pretty solid season in 2020 taking the top awards with multiple organisations in both monthly and annual awards with pets and other subjects too. I have an eye for fine detail and my microstock background has left me with an uncanny ability to spot technical faults. I try to be kind and fair with my portfolio crit and it is always about how to improve, not what you’ve done wrong.”
Jess has been part of my photography journey for a year now and I’ve learned so much from her. Her editing tutorials and 1-2-1 are amazing and have answered so many of my questions. I now have my own style and people love my images
One to one business coaching session
The session that I had with Jess to discuss my brand, marketing and overall business strategy was so helpful. We covered all the areas that I wanted to discuss and Jess gave practical and useful guidance and shared her own experience.
A must have!
I have had two 1-2-1 Business sessions with Jess. They have both given me so much value! Earned them both back during my first in person sales session! I have increased my average sale with over 100%!
Great practical advice!
I would consider myself an experienced dog photographer. I have been in the industry for 9 years and shot a lot of dogs. But still, I felt stuck with my marketing and sales sessions. So what did I do? I booked a One to One business session with Jess. And I am so happy with what I got out of that session. Jess asks the right questions to get the thought process started. She listened to what I had to say. And gave great advice that is possible for me to implement!
Before I ordered I thought that one hour would be a too long session. Could we have enough subjects to talk about for one hour? Oh was I wrong. That hour went so fast. And there was never a second of silence. Just great information and conversation all the time. So thank you so much Jess! I will work on everything we talked about and I will order a new session later to ask all the question that arose after we were finished.
Fantastic and invaluable
Jess’s business coaching has been fantastic and invaluable. By having regular sessions it has helped me set goals for my business and reach them in short spaces of time. Her style of teaching makes all subjects easy to understand and she is very patient! She is very knowledgeable, I have yet to raise a question or query that she does not have an answer or idea of how to solve.
