Before I took Amy's class, I knew that my photos were terrible. I tried my best, but I just never liked them no matter what I tried. I had even tried to emulate other photos that I really liked, but I failed miserably. Within a week of taking Amy's course, I was LOVING my photos! I truly loved them. And it wasn't just me, they were so good that I had a photo I posted online and one commenter said my photo skills were "on point". YAY!! I am so glad I spent the money and took the time to take this course, it was one of the best decisions I'd made for my business.

Hi, I'm Amy.

Through my signature, no-muss no-fuss teaching style, I teach exactly what you need to know through clear, simple steps, which enables you to take gorgeous product photos, quickly and easily. Swirl in a healthy dose of creativity and artistic approach, and these beautiful images allow you to effectively market your products and themselves. That’s why I’ve become the go-to instructor for brand and product photography, having taught over 1500 makers and creatives through my courses.
"Amy’s courses have helped amp up my product photography immensely. I learned how to style them better and figure out how to apply my brand voice to my product photos. My product photos look so much more put together and better reflect the quality of my products. Her courses were essential in taking my product photos to the next level. I don’t use a DSLR, just my iPhone for photos and even though I’m still learning and experimenting, I have a foundation to take some great photos. Every course I’ve taken from her has been well worth the investment."
