All About Lighting

Photography Education

Anyone reading my blog for any amount of time knows how much I love sharing my passion for photography and I love teaching other photographers things that totally make their day. For the longest time I’ve been sharing lighting tutorials, composition tips, equipment comparisons on small blog posts but I’ve been wanting to share even more and for the last year or so we’ve been working on a new website where I can do just that.

This past fall I launched an Online Photography Education site called Shoot for Love, it is a monthly membership site priced to be as affordable and as accessible as possible. I will be posting more and more premium educational content including classroom style instruction, instructional video from past workshops, posing tutorials, retouching videos and more. I focus on techniques I use to create the images I love to create.

The monthly membership fee ($12.95) allows me to not only put more time and effort into these posts, it also comes with a money back guarantee so if you don’t find something you love simply request a refund!  Here are a few of the things we’ve posted within the last couple months, with plenty more to come!
