Want to learn how to take beautiful photos of your kids that your family will treasure forever??
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
Maybe you have read the manual, spent some time learning online, or even taken a class on how to take better pictures. But actually making it work in real life...that stuff is really hard. It takes more than just one class or a little reading to master.
Your Beginners Guide to learning how to shoot in manual, find good light, and take beautiful photos with your DSLR or mirrorless camera.
8 Video lessons that break down all of the introductory skills you need to know, including shooting in manual, what all the settings do, and how to adjust/choose the right ones.
Multiple video demonstrations that cover must-know photography concepts such as composition and lighting, so you can photograph like a professional in any situation.
Access to an exclusive Jill Gum Photo Education Facebook group, so you can interact with other students and ask Jill all those burning photography questions!
A bonus video showing you how to choose the right lighting outdoors so you can take beautiful photos in any situation you find yourself in (including those outdoor kid activities!).
It's SO EASY to think that phones or "auto" camera settings are good enough...and I get it! I totally believe in taking pictures whether GREAT or not-so-great to at least capture the moments! But the difference here? HUGE. All straight out of camera without adjustments, all learning your settings. You could learn to make this difference in your photos NOW!
"Jill's course has really changed my life! It gives me something to look forward to learning, and the financial freedom it has brought my little fam through photography has been such a stress reliever. Just know you are appreciated! I love how I can watch the lessons after my little guy goes to bed so it doesn't interfere with being a mom. I absolutely recommend it to everyone!"
"I've loved this course from the beginning. Thank you for all the hard work and for being available to your students. That's the difference! Having you with us real time, throughout the year. After a year of Photo U, I have more confidence than ever with my camera. My family and friends are indebted to you for preserving these fleeting moments in our lives."
"You can tell Jill is a born teacher. She knows how to teach while reaching all types of learners. She always answers my questions with such detail and understanding! I really enjoy and look forward to the content. My pictures have improved since day 1 in this course and I truly thank Jill for that."
9.5 years ago he came into this world and completely changed our lives. And something that was once a side hobby became a necessity for me...I had to figure out how to capture it all...exactly as it felt!
I spent a year long maternity leave teaching myself (with the help of trusty Google) how to use my camera and practicing non-stop. I figured it out...but it took SO MUCH LONGER THAN IT NEEDED TO!
There was no road map for me, no path to make it easier, no one to guide me through the questions and challenges and things I needed to know.
Because I taught for 8 years before staying home with these 3 babies, teaching is a huge part of me.
Which is why I want to be YOUR road map, guide, and teacher. I know how to make the complex both simple and fun. And I know how to teach you to take the amazing pictures of your family that you dream of!
Inside...Outside...Posed...In The Moment...Vacations ...Pets...Landscape...you name it, you will be able to photograph it!

THESE COULD BE PICTURES YOU TAKE OF YOUR KIDS AND YOUR LIFE SOON!
