Does any of this sound familiar?
...You're eager to learn photography so you can beautifully capture your family, but you are so lost and overwhelmed with all the information available that you don't know what you need to learn next, or where to even start.
...You're feel frustrated because you see all these beautiful images taken by other photographers, and are still having to wonder "how the heck did they DO that?!"
...You're almost too embarrassed to share your photos, either online and with your friends and family, and wish you could feel more confident about your skills.
… You don't understand why your images are soft and out of focus - in fact, so many that you're beginning to think your lens must be broken
...You worry that you might never "get it" and that taking the images you dream of is something you simply won't be able to do.
...You know that by taking so long to learn photography, you are missing out on capturing your family's moments the way you want to - meanwhile your kids are growing up and the moments are passing you by.

Hear what others had to say about Auto to Awesome....
THIS is what sets Auto to Awesome apart from any other program.
Without a roadmap or guidance, learning photography can be seriously overwhelming! Auto to Awesome fast-tracks your growth, and saves you from years of frustration trying to cobble together different internet tutorials.
When you're not aware of what you need to learn, or what to even search for, all the free information in the world won't help you. With Auto to Awesome, you will get everything you need, laid out step by step - so you can get gorgeous images in just a few weeks.
Whether you like to watch something a few times before it sinks in, or you just know for a fact that you will only be able to take the course at certain times, you'll be happy to know that you have lifetime access. That means that for as long as this program is in existence, you can get access to the online learning portal and retake the course as often as you need to.
I aim high when it comes to customer satisfaction, and for me that means you are always treated well, and with honesty and respect. That's why you will never see the price of the course discounted for Black Friday, or for half price in group buy bundles (both so unfair!). Plus you'll also get access to any new bonuses or updates that are created throughout the lifetime of the course.
If you feel like most photography tutorials are as easy to understand as learning quantum physics from a hamster, then you are seriously going to LOVE Auto to Awesome.
I'll never overload your brain with fluff, theory or complicated jargon, just the information you need, in short, bite sized lessons (most are just around 10 mins long) that won't fry your brain. Many people have said that THIS was the course that made everything come together and make sense.
As soon as you join the program, you'll have access to guidance and support within our "Insiders Club" Facebook Group, so you are never on your own.
I'll tackle any questions you have during our live group Q&A Sessions, and provide any guidance you need to help move you forward. (You'll get immediate access to all the previous recordings too!)
Although I know that this course will get you where you want to be, I get that it can be daunting buying anything online.
This is why I have a no-quibble 30 day money back guarantee. If you purchase the course, then decide within 30 days that this is not for you, you'll get a swift and complete refund.
+ Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?
Yes! I offer a 30 day money back guarantee. Just write to me letting me know why the course did not live up to your expectations, and I'll refund you in full.
+ Is the price in USD and how do I pay?
Yes, the price is in USD! You can pay online with either PayPal, Mastercard or American Express. If you choose a payment plan, you can't use PayPal unfortunately.
+ When does the course start and finish?
The moment you sign up! When you enroll, you'll get instant access to the entire course so you can go at your own pace. You also have lifetime access to the materials so you can go at your own pace and not worry that your tutorials or lessons are going to expire.
+ I want to learn how to photograph landscapes / macro / street photography. Does this course cover that?
Although the principles of photography are universal and timeless, this course has been created specifically for those wishing to get great images of their family and children, either in lifestyle / documentary situations, or posed family portraits. Therefore, if you are looking to shoot something OTHER than children and familiies, I would recommend you take a different course, one that is specifically geared toward you genre of photography.
+ What format is the course delivered in?
The course is mainly delivered in video formats, along with some written lessons and exercises. However, since I know it can be frustrating to have to watch the same video again when you only want a quick recap, each module also has a course notes PDF, which has the key takeaways from the videos for you to refer back to. You also get a ton of printable "cheat sheets" - these have been designed so you have the key points along with you when you are practicing or shooting, so you get everything you need, when you need it.
+ Will this course be updated, and will I get free access to future versions?
Yes! I will continue to update, improve and add to the course. When you enroll now you will receive lifetime access to the course along with any improvements or new content that is added.
+ How and where do I access the course?
As the course is online, you can access the course from anywhere that has an internet connection. So you can work from home, in a cafe, or on holiday! All you need to do is log in using the username and password you create at checkout, and the entire course is there waiting for you. So you don't need to download videos, or send them to yourself via email, just log in, and pick up where you left off.
+ Do you offer feedback or support?
When you enroll in Auto to Awesome you also get access to our private Student Facebook Group. Here you can post questions, get feedback and connect with others who are on the same journey as you. I'm also in the group providing live Q&A sessions on a regular basis.
+ What equipment do I need?
You'll need a camera that allows you to shoot in manual mode, and a lens. During the course I'll also ask you to buy a grey card, but these are under $10 and are a worthwhile investment. You won't need anything else to complete the course. As the course is online, you'll also need an internet connection to access the materials.
+ I can already shoot in AV mode – will this course be a waste of time for me?
No! Firstly, you'll work on being able to shoot in manual mode which is the best way to control your exposure, but I also give tips and tricks that will serve you well shooting in AV Mode too. Most people have found that they picked up information that really helped put it all together. Also, controlling exposure is just ONE aspect we cover in the course – we also cover how to set your white balance, get tack sharp images, and how to use light and composition effectively. If you are not already happy with these other elements, then I definitely think you'll find the course worthwhile.
+ I’m just on AUTO at the moment and know nothing about Manual Mode – would it be better to wait until I have more experience?
Absolutely not! This course will take you from the AUTO modes on your camera to shooting on full manual mode, and all the other elements that go into a successful photograph. It might take you a little longer to work through the first module, but remember this course is on your time-frame, not anyone else’s, so if it takes a little longer to get the foundations right, it doesn’t matter! Getting it right from the beginning will save you a ton of headaches later on.
+ Couldn't I just find the same information for free online?
I think there must be more free information available than ever before, but all that is doing is leaving us overwhelmed and frustrated. Also, if you are not aware of what you need to know and what you don't, all the free information in the world won't do you the blindest bit of good. This course will walk you, step by step, through the maze of learning photography, and how to take great photographs. It has also been specifically designed to be actionable, so you don't just get a vague concept, you know exactly what to do with the information given.
