Photo University 2020 Learn to use your camera in an online membership class!

November 25, 2019

After spending our previous years teaching around moms how to use their cameras in in person workshops, we took that content online last year with the Jill Gum Photo University.  I have spent the last year in close contact with my 50 members who have been learning everything it takes to take great photos– some didn’t even have a DSLR when they began, and some run successful photography businesses of their own.  But their before learning and after learning results have blown me away!

The Jill Gum Photo Universitis an opportunity to take a journey with me that isn’t just one afternoon of learning.  It is an online membership where we cover new topics related to your photography each month of the year (starting with Shooting in Manual!) and learn together how to truly take the types of photos you dream of in any situation!

Each month will focus on a specific topic related to your photography.  We will cover:

  • Shooting in manually (including camera settings, focus, white balance, and so much more)
  • How to shoot in all types of outdoor light (shade, bright sunlight, daytime, evening, sunset, etc)
  • Shooting indoors
  • How to achieve beautiful composition
  • What to look for within your editing software to edit your images (and how I edit mine!)
  • How to tell the story- make your pictures look like the moment feels!
  • Photo organization and management (what do you do with your photos AFTER you take them!)
  • Posing and guiding your subjects to catch the real moments
  • So much more bit by bit each month.

In learning about these topics each month, you will gain a much fuller understanding each of these topics, and how they work together to create gorgeous photos.  We will cover the easy situations, the hard situations, and everything in between.  The membership course is delivered 100% online, and each month will includes a 60 minute video of me teaching the content (often while photographing live), a PDF or worksheet to go along with the video, and a Live Online Q+A session with me in the exclusive Facebook Community (where you can have access to me throughout the month for continuous guidance!).

This is class is for the busy mom, student, or hobbyist who doesn’t have the TIME to commit hours and hours in one setting to learn how to use their camera.  Learn on your schedule, in your ideal timeframe, and watch again and again for the price of just a couple of coffee drinks a month.

Class begins on January 6, but pre-launch enrollment opens today!  Students are enrolled in a membership site where they will access the content whenever they want, as often as they want!  And the best part?? I’m giving you a huge part of the membership RIGHT when you sign up so you don’t have to wait to start learning…keep reading for details!

You might be wondering how much it would cost to get online education, on your own time, delivered to you monthly to help you take your photos from this (from one of my sweet students):


It will cost the same amount it costs to get a couple fancy Starbucks drinks a month.  For the Christmas Pre-Launch Sale, open NOW, the Jill Gum Photo University will cost only $19/month (down from $27 last year!)!!  You can choose to pay for a full year upfront and get one month for free, or pay monthly.


I’m  just so excited about this because I have spent a full year watching this content transform the photos of so many moms and hobbyists…and now it could be you too! More info will be available in 2020 leading up to the official launch, but the Christmas Pre-Launch Sale is only available until December 20th!  After that, the price will raise for the initial launch.

And the BEST PART?? When you join today, you will get IMMEDIATE bonus access to my Mastering Manual Mini-Course, where I teach you exactly how to shoot in Manual instead of Automatic on your camera, and use your settings correctly so that you can make the decisions about your photos instead of your camera thinking for you! You don’t have to wait at all to learn– the content will be available to you immediately upon sign up!  This is a 1.5 hour class where I teach everything you need to know to shoot in manual!

This membership is for the mom, camera enthusiast, grandparent, or nature lover who wants to learn to photograph better!  We will cover a lot of topics related to photographing your kids, but also so much more for those who fit into another category.  It is REAL education for REAL life, where you don’t have time to sit in a physical space for hours on end, or watch a hugely long course within a specific time span. You can watch it on your own time, when you can, and rewatch as you need for review throughout the month!  It is education for any level and any type of photographer who wants to improve their photography…whether you are using your cell phone, a point and shoot camera, or a DSLR! It is for you!

And it is the prefect Christmas gift for a loved one or yourself!  Give your family the gift of beautifully captured memories this year– this class will do that for you!  Click HERE to learn more about the membership, but also feel free to shoot me an email at jill@jillgum.com in the mean time with any questions you might have.

Here are a few more before/after shots of my students who have learned just a fraction of the content that is taught in Jill Gum Photo U!  Many of these befores and afters are of the SAME subject…just after my students learned how to use their cameras!!  I’m SO PROUD of them!!!

Do you want these results too?? You can photograph like this for just $19/month!!
