Styling and Lighting for Instagram

An amazing day learning some simple techniques for styling and lighting, this workshop is highly recommended. Lyndsey takes away the myths and shows you how to use simple techniques for styling flatlay and images, and students can allow their creativity to flow. A perfect day!

This was a fabulous day with loads of styling tips and plenty of pretty flowers and props to use in our photos. A lovely lunch was provided too. I knew this workshop would be good, having previously done Lyndsey's 100 lesson photography course, but it was even better than I expected. Highly recommended!

This workshop was absolutely brilliant and after spending a day with Lyndsey I felt so much more confident to style a flatlay image to show off my jewellery at its best. I can already see a huge improvement in my Instagram feed and hope I can continue to put what I have learnt into practice. Thanks Lyndsey! X

This course has been the most amazing journey I have taken in a long while. Lyndsey is a natural born teacher. She is encouraging yet patient. She explains everything in a down to earth way. You never feel intimidated by jargon. Both my product photos and my social media photos have improved no end and I feel confident that I now have the tools to keep on practising and improving. I've already seen this translate into more sales and more followers on social media. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, and I can't wait to do more courses or workshops with Lyndsey!

This course is the best online course that I have ever done (and I have done several art related courses before) Lyndsey is very clever in the way in which she has put it together. It was fascinating, perfectly paced and just a pleasure to do. I have learnt so much, as Lyndsey is very generous with the course content and with the feedback she gives whilst working through each module. I didn't want the course to end, and just wish that I lived closer so that I could attend all the workshops as well. Thank you !

What a fabulous day we all had. It was so easy to pick up on what Lyndsey was teaching us and we were all able to produce some photo-worthy Flat Lays very quickly. All the little tips were invaluable to me - and the lunch was amazing too. xxx

An inspirational and incredibly enjoyable day of learning within a beautiful natural environment. The day gave me confidence to try more with my photos and my cameras and I appreciated Lyndsay's coaching style which made the group work well as individuals and as a group. I've been using my new skills and have had really positive feedback. Highly recommended.

This course was simply fantastic, a wonderful day spent with like minded people. It certainly didn't feel like work, it felt like therapy for the soul. Lyndsey is an inspiring tutor and I came away with so many ideas for using my flat lay photography skills. The whole atmosphere of the workshops was a breathe of fresh air, from the location to the food provided everything was just seamless. I could do with a day like that once a month to recharge my creative batteries.

This was a really good day out - great to get away from the day to day of the business, but fabulous to be doing such fun photography that is perfect for so many uses. Despite the grey, grey day, we all produced some amazing images. Really inspiring and Lyndsay just has such good tips and advice. I don't think anyone would be disappointed. Might even do it again!

The Best Money Your Business Will Ever Spend

★★★★★

I cannot say enough good about this course! Before I signed up, I was worried about spending what seemed like a lot of money. I'm very nearly at the end of the course now and I can honestly say that it's the best money the business has EVER spent. The way the course is structured is so clever and simple. I'm not very technically minded but even I could understand the simple way the course is presented. As well as helping me to develop valuable camera skills (and knowledge), the course also covers styling, set up, lighting etc. and has made me think about my product presentation in a whole new creative way. The difference between the photos I was taking before I started this course and the photographs I have taken with my new found knowledge is unbelievable.....you would never think they were taken by the same person with the same camera! I strongly believe that beautiful pictures sell products and this course really has helped me to start taking beautiful pictures that I'm proud of instead of mediocre product snaps (at best). I can't wait to re-photograph everything on our website. If you're debating about whether or not this course is worth the money..........STOP DEBATING! Honestly! Sign up as soon as you can. I wish I had done it ages ago. I can't think of one bad thing to say about the course.

I've just finished the Photocraft e-course and I've loved every minute of it. I found it really useful to be able to take the course at my own pace and repeat the technical lessons where needed, and to get Lyndsey's great tips on my practice shots too - which have been invaluable. My photography is now infinitely better than it was before, and I've finished the course with lots of exciting new ideas about how to best present my business and products going forward. I've a lot of work ahead of me now to get all my images up to the level I now know I'm capable of, but thanks to the course, I'm confident I can style and photograph my products in a much more professional manner, and I'm looking forward to getting started!

I am so pleased I booked a place on the Photocraft course. Lyndsey is an excellent tutor – enthusiastic, helpful and encouraging. The lessons were well-paced, practical and packed with creative inspiration. Before I started the course I had lots of unanswered questions about photography/styling – the lessons soon revealed the answers. 

I am thrilled with the results I am now able to achieve with my camera. Thank you Lyndsey and the Photocraft team for such a fantastic course, I would thoroughly recommend it.

I've just completed this course and have been recommending it to all my designer maker contacts. You will gain confidence in using your camera and a wonderful insight to styling your product shots. Move away from the Auto setting with confidence!!

Great explanations & lots of inspiration

Your 100 lesson e-course on "Photography & Styling" was a very intensive, inspiring class that provided me with so much insight! Not only was your explanation of exposure, aperture, shutter time and ISO by far the best I've heard until now, I really came out of this class with a much better understanding of what I'm actually doing with my camera. I still have some way to go (practice, practice!), but I have the tools I need now - so thank you very much, Lyndsey (and your team!), for this course. It shows that you really live for your profession and your lessons were very carefully and lovingly set up, I really enjoyed it!

My online sales have doubled!

The Photocraft course is Fantastic, over the last five weeks I've learnt so much about photography and taking that perfect product shot, which is something that was stopping my business growing on social media. Now I know how to stage a scene and take a photo using the correct camera settings and because of this my on-line sales have doubled in the past few weeks. Lyndsey is brilliant and the lessons are well thought out and concise resulting in happy students and new photography skills. Thanks so much Lyndsey and the Photocraft team.

A great investment!

Unavoidably, I missed day 1 of my 2-day course in Lewes, but even the 50% I caught has improved my product photography and styling immeasurably. Warm, friendly, knowledgeable and generous, Lyndsey is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher, great at demystifying techie topics. I'm signing up for the 5-week online course (to catch up what I missed), and I can't wait! If you have any doubts about signing up, dispel them: Photocraft is a great investment.

A Must for Creative Entrepreneurs

★★★★★
5 5 1
This course takes a daunting process for many creatives and breaks it down into smaller, more manageable tasks using plain language, useful assignments and exercises and threads a creative tone throughout it all. Lyndsey does a phenomenal job of translating the language of photography into something that is easily understood. She offers great tips and tricks and fun assignments to apply new knowledge. Without a doubt, I feel far more confident about doing my own product photography and styling after completing this course. Highly recommended for anyone who is starting a creative business or has been doing it for years... there is something here for everyone!

Inspiration boards 1 hour tutorial

As usual Lyndsey does not disappoint! This one hour tutorial was great, and extremely inspirational. When I saw the promotional images I didn't think I would be able to create anything like this, but once Lyndsey went through it step by step it seemed so simple. I will forever look at odd bits and bobs around the house a potential pieces for my boards. These one hour tutorials are so cheap at only £10, I can't wait to find out what the next one is!

Ten quid well spent - this tutorial was fantastic - I finished it feeling inspired and full of motivation. Can't wait to do my first inspiration board and start the 5 week course in Sept. Highly recommended.

The online course has been invaluable in three major ways: I now understand my camera and know what to do to improve each shot I take I now know how to make my own perfectly-lit photo set instead of fruitlessly searching the house for an existing one The biggest revelation was Lyndsey's method for creating white backgrounds, I cannot tell you how happy that makes me!

My business is transformed!

I went on your two day photography and styling course in June 2013. It was a wonderful two days and as a result my business has moved forward in leaps and bounds. I now love taking my product photos (lampshades) and my website is now a beautiful portfolio of all of the designs I offer. The course gave me the ability to add the wow factor to my website and I get lots of compliments about it. My business wouldn\'t be where it is today had I not signed up for your course - the best thing I could possibly have done! Thank you Lyndsey x

No going back now!!

Where to begin! Such an extremely well thought out course it includes everything you could ever wish to learn and more. I was so surprised that you need very little previous experience to get you shooting like a pro and the course changes your mind set and gets you to start thinking out of the box and away from your original bad habits. Lyndsey walked me through it at a calm and relaxed pace with a fair few giggles on the way for good measure! Money well spent to take your business to the next level, don\'t delay sign up today!!!

Sales Up 60%

I can honestly say that the photography and styling modules have transformed my business. As well as technically better photos, I am now considering the whole layout of my shots. Something must be working as sales are up an incredible 60% since the online course in January.\r\n\r\nI would definitely recommend this course to anyone with an online business.\r\n\r\nThanks!

My confidence has soared!

Since completing the Photocraft course my confidence has soared and I can actually find my way around my camera settings now. \r\nI look at the world in a completely different way now, and can see potential photo shoots in every location I visit. I appreciate colours much more and especially enjoyed the colour trend section and product placement for the perfect shoot.

Your business needs this!

The best two day course I have attended in a long time and one that my business will benefit from. My idea of taking a good photo before this course was simply aiming and hoping for the best. Now I have a better understanding of what my camera can achieve and with a little bit of planning, I can get professional results without having to pay professional fees. Book today, you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend the Photocraft course

I decided to do the Designers & Makers course after going to a workshop run by Lyndsey where I learnt more in an hour than I\'d ever learnt about photography. \r\n\r\nThe 5-week course didn\'t disappoint. \r\n\r\nLyndsey\'s teaching style is extremely accessible, simplifying the complexities of photography techniques and enabling you to understand how to achieve the best images for your products. \r\n\r\nI highly recommend the course - it is invaluable for anyone wanting to learn how to take their own quality pictures of their products. \r\n\r\nI would, however, not only set time aside to do the course but make sure you also have time to practice.

The course far exceeded my expectations. I wasn't sure what to expect from an online course but I needn't have worried. Lyndsey's style of teaching encourages and motivates the will to learn. Bite size pieces of technical information and a chance to practice and submit your work. Finally being able to use my camera without it being on auto is in itself a miracle, I am now beginning to enjoy taking photographs of my products and even proud of a few. The styling part of the course is the icing on the cake, it completes the course and has given me the tools on which to build the skills I am slowly developing. Highly recommended. Thank you Lyndsey

I really wish I'd been able to take this course years ago when I first started my business! The knowledge I've learned was invaluable - I have no doubt that I will make more sales and get more exposure from the massively improved product shots I can now take. I've had a DSLR camera for years and never had a clue how to use it on anything but auto! I still think its pretty confusing but Lyndsey did a brilliant job of simplifying it and I finally feel like I have a good understanding of the technical bits and bobs. The forum interaction by Lyndsey and the other group members was really great and just as valuable as the lessons themselves. I loved all the suggestions for styling photos and presentation - really simple and useful tips! Thank you very much - I wholeheartedly recommend this course.

Best 2 days for your business!

I went to Lewes for this amazing 2 day workshop, it was a beautiful setting - it felt like a mini holiday. It was a very relaxed and chilled out two days but we crammed so much in to it, the first day was learning all the technical side to taking photos, there was lots of trying out different settings and seeing examples of what you can use each setting for. I practised on my own products and had lots of help, we also went for a wander around the village taking photos of the great surroundings. Day two was all about styling, we began with an exercise about getting to know our target customers, and looking through magazines to get a feel for what styles we liked, we set up some products to shoot learning how to style each item and what props and colours to use. Both days were invaluable, I had the best time, it was full of great information and I learned so much, it was also really fun and great to be surrounded by crafty people. If you are thinking of doing this course, just do it! For any business, whether you are a new business or more established it is never to late to learn these skills.

Photocraft = Absolutely wonderful course! It has inspired me so much after the past 5 weeks and I am really sad it is already over. Lyndsey is so supportive,encouraging and helpful. I can finally stop taking my product photographs on auto mode on my slr and I have learned what all the buttons do - finally! A definitely must for any designer/maker who are struggling with their photographs and brand.

I just can't believe that I learned so much in 5 weeks ! The nice blur, the props, the lighting, the background, the backdrop, ISO and all the technical stuff. It's a-ma-zing and I'm very thankful !

I'm beginning to feel sad that the course is coming to an end. As well as giving me practical, technical skills, the course has made me take stock of what I want for my business and how I want it to look. Lyndsey has encouraged me to strive for the best possible image for my business and through doing the course I have been reminded how much I love what I do. I have fallen in love with colour and styling and I'm so excited about building my brand. You've done something wonderful with Photocraft. X
