About the course...
This 3.5 hour in depth video course walks through all the ins and outs of how I shoot and edit to achieve my light and airy photography style.
The course is broken down into five sections including preparing clients for their session, what I’m looking for in my locations, posing and capturing authentic emotions, the technical side of shooting, culling and editing.
This Master Course is a cumulation of my bachelors of fine art photography degree and twelve years worth of professional experience developing my photography style, all condensed down in to a 3.5 hour master course which includes instructional teaching, on location demos throughout the seasons, and a private membership group for like-minded community, Q&As, and additional resources.
Your learning doesn't end once you complete the course as I am constantly adding bonus content based on member requests.

What Carmody had to say:
"I own all of Katie's courses, and I can say that her courses are precise, organized, and packed with easy-to-understand information. Without a doubt, her Master Class is at the top of the list. I have learned so much from Katie. I feel that I now have the tools to photograph a lifestyle shoot even if it is outside of my comfort zone!"

Here's what Rafaela had to say:
"Katie is a natural educator and has the ability to break down the information in a way that is super easy to understand. I was able to apply the knowledge to my sessions after watching the course, and it made a huge difference right away. I also really liked how the course is not only conversational but also includes seeing her in action, which works for the visual people like me. The whole thing was so good; I’ve already watched it twice from beginning to end!"
Here's what Nicole had to say:
"Prior to Katie's course, my pictures looked like everyone else's. I had a vision, but no matter the amount of research, I wasn't able to achieve exactly what I was envisioning. After the course, I am so much closer to my vision. Now my work stands out from other photographers in the area and I've booked my entire calendar at prices I never thought people would dare pay. I have so much more confidence behind the lens; each session is better than the last!"
