What other photographers are saying about this course!

"A Huge Asset to my Business"

Lindsey Long, Lindsey Long Photography

"Shelley is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but she’s a great teacher! With no previous video knowledge, after learning from her I was off and running adding video to my portrait sessions and private show photography clients. It’s a huge asset to my photography business to be able to provide video as well! Equine photographers are lucky to have an excellent teacher like Shelley making it all simple."

"You Need to Take This Course!"

by Kayla Morse, Kayla Norene Photography

"Shelley’s education has taken my photography business to a new level. I took her “Video for Photographers” course where she taught how to add value to your sessions with video. For any videography newbies, YOU NEED TO TAKE THIS COURSE! I walked into it with ZERO videography knowledge and walked away knowing the basic foundation to get started."

  • Is this course only for Equestrian Photographers?

    No! While my niche is equestrian, any photographer in any genre who wants to learn to make videos would benefit from this course.

  • What kind of equipment do I need to get the most out of the course?

    You will want a DSLR or Mirrorless camera capable of recording video and video autofocus. You will also need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription (Photography plan or higher) to benefit from the editing demonstrations.

  • Does this course include any 1:1 mentoring?

    This is a standalone course separate from my mentorship program. If you would like any personal mentoring on video, you can schedule a 1:1 video mentoring session if you need more individualized instruction.
