“master the art of photography in the sunflowers at hitchin lavender.”

YOU DON’T need any experience to attend!

Whether you’re a total beginner wanting to learn some basic photography skills, or an aspiring instagrammer - there is something for everyone to gain from this bootcamp.

We won’t be complicating the course with pro cameras or bulky lenses - instead - we’re building the course around whatever camera you have available to you.

All you need to attend this BADASS bootcamp is you and your camera.

Learn how to pose, frame your photos, work with light and use props to take your images from obviously amateur to deceivingly professional.

ALL that, and I’ll even be showing you my favourite apps and filters for finishing your images - right from the comfort of your smartphone.

ABOUT me. 

About Jess

I'd LOVE to be able to tell you I was a photography buff from birth, but NAH.
It was 2010 - instagram had just been released - and an image wasn't finished until it had at least 3 layers of retro filter slapped on top (admit it - you did it too).
At that time, I'd decided to sack off my degree in English Literature (yes, I was that girl) and had managed to convince a reputable Financial Advisor that I was the ideal candidate for the position he had going - and there I was. In a suit. Pretending I knew the first thing about money. (I quickly learned that I'd rather die young than continue on the path of financial advisory.) 
Nick, my boss at the time, had been studying a 6 year degree in Photography on the side of his business, and was undeniably very passionate about it. He was one of those guys whose interests rubbed off on people and the more he shared with me about his love for photography - the more I realised I actually thought it was pretty cool too. Not only that, but I totally had an eye for it - I just had no idea how to use a camera yet. ---
Now... this isn't one of those stories where things just took off within a year - I sucked to begin with. In fact, I sucked for quite a long time - but, nonetheless, I'd decided I was starting this thing - I was gonna be a 'business woman' now. LOL.
5 years on, and quite frankly, I'm still not THE most technical photographer you'll ever meet. I don't geek out over camera settings or lenses - but I do have a whole WORLD of creative vision and the determination to go with it - tell me I can't do something and I'll show you you're wrong. 😂

Over those 5 years or so, I have poured myself into learning my craft and eventually growing my business to book out my calendar shooting things I absolutely LOVE. But hear me…those things didn’t come overnight and they didn’t come without a shed-load of hard work. I googled, took classes, attended workshops and networking events, shot a ton, watched tutorials, read blog posts…and on and on and on.

I'm taking everything I've learnt and starting to offer workshops & bootcamps - just like this one - not because it's the next thing to do - but because people are my jam. If I get to help you a couple steps alongs your journey - and have a wicked time while we do it well, the privilege would be all mine.
