Great photos start with knowledge
Master your DSLR camera to master your photography.
The kids are growing up so fast.
Time is passing and you’re not getting the great shots you dreamed of!
You’ve got a great new DSLR camera. You’re so excited and you can’t wait to start taking amazing photographs of your kids…just like the ones you’ve seen other parents posting online.
But your photos are blurry, too dark or too light. You’ve tried everything! You asked in Facebook groups how to fix the problem and you got lots of different answers. So you still can’t take those gorgeous photos you dreamed of.
Now you’re frustrated and you want to give up and go back to using your smart phone. Don’t give up! It’s not your camera and you don’t need to get a better one. You just need to start at the beginning.
Take our easy to follow online camera course for beginners to get a thorough understanding of what your DSLR camera can do and an introduction to the fundamental concepts of photography. I designed this course especially for you.
Photographs are our history…and we all want a beautiful history. Digital photography made it possible for everyone to take their own photographs, but modern cameras are very complex tools. Before you can learn to capture beautifully composed and creative photographs, you need to know the basics. You need to know how to be the boss of your camera.

Detailed course workbook with exercises to download
Hi! I’ve been a photographer for over 20 years, specialising in photographing people. I started out as a freelance assistant photographer in 1996, working in fashion, advertising and commercial studios before I started photographing weddings in 1999. In 2009 I opened my first portrait studio in the UK.
Over the years many of my clients asked for help, because they had a great DSLR camera, but didn’t know how to use it. Some already knew a little about their DSLR, but wanted to learn how to take better photographs of their everyday family life in between their annual family portrait booking. So I taught small classes and gave one on one tuition.
Losing my mother made me realise how lucky I am to have so many photographs of my family, because my dad was a keen photographer and I started photography as a child. So I decided that, instead of just photographing others, I had to teach everyone to take their own great photographs.
That’s when the idea of The Lens Lounge started forming. Be The Boss of Your Camera, a DSLR camera course for beginners, is the first online course in the series.
