The Content PHOTO Minor

WHEN IT COMES TO TAKING PHOTOS OF YOURSELF...

Self portraits are the bane of your existence. For all the freakin time it takes, you barely get a good shot out of it.

You feel SO conceited taking photos of yourself. It feels like you're screaming "LOOK HOW COOL I LOOK!" 

Finding the poses to do that actually feel authentically you is the hardest freakin' thing ever.

You don't have all the time in the world to get dolled up, go shoot, and then edit them all? That sounds exhausting, and what's even the point anyway?

You're afraid they're not going to be anything special, just a pic of you lookin' at the camera... YAWN...

You struggle knowing HOW to take them of yourself with a tripod because finding someone else isn't going well.

You don't even get the point. It feels self absorbed, and it's HELLA awkward to do in front of people.

Your thought process is "What the HELL am I even supposed to be doing in the photo? Smiling? Sipping coffee? HOW DO I LOOK NATURAL!?"

SHARING PHOTOS OF YOURSELF WILL BENEFIT YOUR BUSINESS A FRICK TON?

DID YOU KNOW...

You've heard it before. If you want to grow your online business you HAVE to build that know, like, and trust factor. The vast majority of the time, people don't buy from someone unless they TRUST them. Right!? Meaning in order to sell ANYTHING online these days, most people aren't going to buy your service or product if they don't know who the heck you are. So, how do they get to know you? Content Photos. ;)

TAKING PHOTOS OF YOURSELF DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT AWKWARD?

WHAT IF WE TOLD YOU

SO now you know WHY you gotta show up in your biz.  Except... you're still not doing it, because it's difficult, awkward, takes too long, and you don't have a clue where to start. That's why we created The Content Photo Minor to not only teach you, but SHOW you exactly how we plan, style, scout, and shoot our own content photos for our business. If not knowing HOW to take content photos is stopping you, we gotchu friend.

The Content Photo Minor course starts out teaching you about your purpose and why photos of yourself are important to your business. Remember, you're not shooting photos of yourself to be narcissistic (lol), you're doing it to create a better connection with your audience to grow your business. This section teaches you how to plan your shoots with a bigger vision of WHY behind it, and how to choose outfits that compliment your brand and purpose.

When it comes to creating content photos of yourself, location can make or break everything. Locations should have a lot of intentional planning behind them depending on your brand or purpose for the shoot. In this course you get to shadow and follow along with us as we scout for our shoots in real time. We teach you how we pick locations specifically to compliment our brands as well as our outfits for each shoot.

We believe one of the best ways to learn how to do something is to watch someone else do it. One of the biggest struggles with content photos is not knowing how to pose naturally in front of the camera. We structured this mini course to be a behind the scenes style video where you're a fly on the wall watching and learning how we pose ourselves. As we shoot and pose we stop and teach why we're doing what we're doing, to walk you through the thought process behind the way we pose ourselves.

Another main hang up when it comes to taking photos of yourself is not having a professional photographer on call, right?! This course shows how you can pose yourself with or without a professional photographer. Even if you have a friend who isn't a photographer, whether that's your significant other, a bff, your mom, etc.. we'll teach you exactly how to shoot your own content photos with both a photographer or your mama behind the camera.

Don't have anyone around to hold the camera? No worries. That's STILL no excuse to not create content photos of yourself for your business. This course doesn't leave ya hanging. Watch us walk you step by step through exactly how to take your own self portraits on a tripod. We show you in real time on location how to take your own tripod content photos in two completely different ways, so no matter what camera (or phone!) you have, you can do it too. Cause sometimes with no one around, you have to get creative and take your own dang shots, ya know!?

YES! We have a 30 day money back guarantee on all our courses. If you purchase the course, watch it, and truly feel you didn't learn a thing, send us an email proving you watched the entire course before deciding, and we'll refund you.

money back guarantee?

This course doesn't cover editing. We chose to not include the post production part of a photoshoot to keep it simple since so many people edit differently. We might do an editing course in the future, but for now this course just focuses on taking the actual photos and posing yourself.

DOES THIS COVER EDITING?

This course is different from most posing tutorials/guides, because of it's behind the scenes style of filming. We made this course so students could virtually shadow us on full day of planning and shooting content, watching the techniques we use to pose ourselves to create branded content photos that connect with our audience.
