During 'Next Level' you'll...

-1-

Say hi to your style through experimentation!

When you begin injecting yourself into your imagery, that's when the special stuff starts to happen. During this course, you'll start taking creative control and relish the risks that accelerate that process. You'll play with the basic principles until they become intuitive, so you becomes the artist, instead of the camera!

-2-

Understand great photography can exist far beyond the technical!

Learn and rely on skills beyond the technical realm, as your photographer's vision is constantly inspired. Understanding something and putting knowledge into practice are distinct, and in this journey, you'll be immersed in honing the latter for a path towards creative euphoria!

-3-

Sign off in a new direction...

...with way more confidence! Whether you want to the ordinary into extraordinary, capture your loved ones or progress towards a successful career, Next Level allows you to do all of that. You will graduate with more passion, belief and a new direction to follow. One that will feed into all the other areas of your life! Sound good?

What do you need to get stuck into Next Level?

  • Manual Mode Down: Familiarity with the basics of photography and how your camera works.

  • Passion for Experimentation: An open mind and a willingness to explore new, creative approaches to photography.

  • Camera Equipment: A DSLR or mirrorless camera with manual settings capability is required. A prime lens with a wide aperture will help immensely!

  • Access to Editing Software: Basic knowledge of Lightroom would be beneficial throughout.

  • GIve Everything to the Process: There are no mistakes in Next Level because you know how to shoot in manual mode. It's entirely up to you how far you push it!

"I may have shown you my way on my beginners course. Now it's your turn to show me yours!"

 

If you've mastered manual mode but want to step it up a notch, you've come to the right place. I'm Laura, a professional photographer who uses the camera for much more than its technical knowhow - I use it as a tool to bring my vision to life with light, lines and moments. In this course, we'll be exploring the best part of photography which is your creative vision.

Technically perfect images can be boring - there I said it! I want your imagery to wake people up by focusing less on equipment, and more on what you see.

During our time together, a series of mini lessons will be delivered to you with a joyful bias towards action. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let's take thousands of pictures so your style becomes known!

Kind graduate words...

@leannehannaphotographyandfilms

"This course encourages you to do things you've not done before, and the encouragement from both Laura and the others is amazing. I've done other courses before and never found this sense of community."

@thisisjules

"I took a beautiful picture of my daughter during Next Level, and I knew in that moment, I could be a photographer. The techniques I learned during this course were the real game changer for me, and allowed me to put my stamp on my imagery. I've not looked back!"
