And if you are a big dreamer who wants to turn your photography passion into a business that allows you to work from home and create whatever work schedule you want while doing something you love, I’ve got your back there, too--
That’s why I’ve created multiple resources for any mom-paparazzi season you’re in. From “I-got-this-camera-yesterday” all the way to “I-can-shoot-in-manual-but-want-more,” I’ve got an option for you to take you to the next level.
And the best part: you can learn with ANY camera of your choice (except for those old point and shoot cameras…I promise, your phone will do a better job anyways!).
From the quick-fix of “I want to take better photos today with whatever phone or camera I have” to a deep dive into taking gorgeous, meaningful photos in every situation…the Jill Gum Classroom has a clear and convenient educational resource for you!
Picture this: You see your kid doing something adorable, and run to grab your camera of choice. When you get back and–miracle!!-- the moment is still photo-worthy, and…CLICK! You look at your camera…and your heart sinks. The photo doesn’t really capture what your eyes are seeing at all.
I’ve been there, and found myself so frustrated…
because while the days are long, the years are SO short…
and photos are what we have to remember it all with.
Edit your cell phone photos with just ONE click to either "fix" an issue or add beautiful "flair" and style to your photo!
A 1.5-hour video course designed to transform your pics from “just a cell phone photo” to beautiful, bright, album-worthy pictures.
One photographer. One site. Dozens of resources.
From my recommended camera gear to software to my favorite business books...if you're looking for it, this page has it!
An intro video course to teach you all the ins and outs of shooting in Manual Mode with your camera.
As a past teacher, Mrs Gum was my name for a long time– but please call me Jill! I’m head photographer and teacher in the Jill Gum Classroom. I love teaching moms, because being a mom is how it all started for me…I fell in love with taking pictures of my baby boy, and the rest is truly history. I have spent years creating courses that make the complex both simple and fun. Courses that feel like coffee with an old-friend-turned-cheerleader who spills all the details (but none of the coffee!) and has a college degree in teaching. So you get everything you need, broken down in an understandable way, and nothing else!
