Photographing Irresistible Interiors
Everyone knows that design is king - and you've got the eye for it. You know that your point of view is more than just unique - it's extremely valuable. Yeah, as in monetarily valuable. You have the ability to create a beautiful space out of less than promising bare bones and you just KNOW that when people see it, they'll fall in love and fall in line to hire you!
But that's the tricky part - the part that makes you nervous to the point where you kind of don't want to write another blog post or share another facebook update again, maybe ever.
You know what I'm talking about - your photos turn out kind of blurry, too yellow, or just plain dull. They don't do your designs justice and they're not getting tons of love like the ones you see on Pinterest.
I mean, if only you could have someone else do it. They could come on over, give your project that magazine quality style and then shoot it just the way you envision but can't quite seem to achieve.
Let's get real, though - that could cost a small fortune...
Or! You could go buy stock photos and use them for your blog or social media! Only, if you do that you've completely lost the YOU in it, and people will never be able to fall in love with your style, much less hire you.
So no, you've got to DIY.
Imagine feeling ready to style and photograph your projects confidently. Every time you create a new and fabulous idea, you're ready to share it with the world - and when you do? It's adored, shared and re-shared - getting you the attention your hard work deserves!
Let's get you there.
Introducing PHOTOGRAPHING IRRESISTIBLE INTERIORS - How to Build an Image Library That Sells
In this workbook, you'll learn how to take your blog and social media photos from blah to Fab.U.Lous.
- Helpful instruction that will help you improve your photos and find YOUR style, not just cop someone else's
- A list of basic tools you'll needs to make your photography life easier
- Secret tips and tricks I use whenever I shoot - the things I had to learn the hard way!
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
- Inspiration - how to achieve the looks you love from Pinterest and Instagram without being a giant copycat
- Lighting - why it's so important, how to achieve the best light in any set up, and what to avoid
- Composition - how to create the most interesting compositions - the ones people won't scroll past without a second glance
- Editing - the few simple steps you want to take after you shoot to really make your images POP and the things you should NEVER EVER do to a photo
- Styling - the three levels of image styling and how and when to use each one
Oh, and while we're on the topic? We'll be talking about how to make all this work with your smartphone (team iPhone, here, holla!) TOO. Wouldn't it be awesomely easy to take blog photos with just your phone and have them look so good no one would know the difference?
- the best way to achieve crystal clear focus
- how to fake a shallow depth of field (aka the "blurry background" effect)
- getting great exposure - making sure your photo is not too light and not too dark
- correcting color casts from shade or other tricky lighting
- Instagram - the simple steps to get more double taps on your images!
OH AND GUYS? NOT TO BE ALL, "BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!", BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
Irresistible Interiors will teach you what you need to know to take your photos - and therefore your brand itself - to the next level. If you're a designer who's got great taste and dreams of really going big, but your photos are holding you back, this is definitely the class for you.
If you've tried improving your traffic by submitting to sites like DwellingGawker and you're not getting in, or you've applied for campaigns and no one's choosing to work with you, it could be that your photos really are the element that needs work. Images ARE that important, and if they're the thing that's keeping you from success - real success, whether that means a huge fan base, getting more clients or even big huge things like your own home accessories line - then you NEED to figure out how to improve them. Irresistible Interiors will help you do just that.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -
HOW IS THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS I'VE SEEN? AND FOR THAT MATTER, HOW IS IT BETTER THAN JUST READING A BOOK ON THE TOPIC?
Reading about a topic or watching a video or two is great, but it doesn't push you to effective change the same way a guided workbook with specifically designed exercises does. If you're like me, you already have a ton of reference materials on tons of different topics. You may read a sixth of the way through and then they are forgotten, just taking up space on your hard drive or getting dusty on a shelf. With Irresistible Interiors, your assignments will make sure you're doing the work that will help you improve, not just wasting money on another future dust-gatherer.
CAN I DOWNLOAD IT ALL AT ONCE AND WORK AT MY OWN PACE?
Yes! You will receive your workbook immediately so it's ready when you are. You can work on a chunk at a time or go photo crazy and try it all at once.
WAIT, WHAT? SOUNDS LIKE THERE'S TOO MUCH HERE TO FIT INTO MY SUPER BUSY SCHEDULE. HOW MUCH WORK WILL I ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO?
I'm super busy, too - who isn't? I have three kids and between pick ups, drop offs, running-a-business life, oh, and the 1 hour of quiet time (aka watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix) I spend with my husband each night, I feel like I have barely any time to sit down and learn new stuff, too. That's why I created the Irresistible Interiors lessons to supplement what you're already doing for your blog and social media channels. You won't be bogged down watching long tutorials or reading large chunks of text. There are some things you'll need to think about and answer, but the majority of your time will be spent doing what you already do - designing and photographing. Do remember, though - the harder you work at something, the better you'll get.
This sounds like a ton of great stuff - what isn't covered in this workbook?
Irresistible Interiors does not go over the nuts and bolts of how to use your camera - but that's OK. I recommend shooting with a dSLR in manual mode but the class itself covers information you can use with any camera. It also does not teach you the magic of Photoshop. If you have Photoshop and know how to use it - awesome! If you don't, that's ok - you can use PicMonkey if you're familiar with it or editing apps on your phone or tablet. There have been times I've been sitting in front of Photoshop just WISHING I could use my phone apps to edit instead, so no Photoshop = no prob. (Seriously, though - if you find you love editing photos, Adobe Creative Cloud is pretty awesome and it's only a small fee each month - check it out.)
WHAT IF I'M NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE I'M HAVING A BABY/ GOING TO BALI/ LIGHTING MY COMPUTER ON FIRE?
First of all, don't light your computer on fire - it's bad for so many reasons. Second, the beauty of having a workbook you can reference for all time is that you can go back and access the materials when you are ready. You're not going to miss out on anything, promise. Also, if you're going to Bali, please do remember to send me a postcard. I'm kind of obsessed with Bali.
WHAT IF I WANT TO START IMPROVING MY PHOTOS IN, SAY, SEPTEMBER? SHOULD I WAIT?
You're killing me, dude. You want to get better, so this is kind of a why wait situation, right?
DO I NEED A TON OF SPECIAL PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT OR STYLING STUFF FROM ANTHROPOLOGIE?
Um, yes, everyone should go drop $5000 at Anthro right NOW. Just kidding, but if you need an excuse to buy that super cute handcarved daybed, you can say I told you to do it. Honestly, you can use what you already have around the house. There are some tools you can buy if you want, but you really don't have to have a majorly crazy set up.
WHAT IF I DON'T END UP LIKING THE WORKBOOK? CAN I HAVE MY MONEY BACK?
You're going to love it; I'm just telling you now. However, due to the nature of digital products, no refunds can be issued. Your happiness is a priority to me, though, so if you feel something is missing PLEASE let me know and I will make it a point to revise the workbook, include what you need to know and send it to you. That sounds like a crapton of work - and IT IS! - but that is how serious I am about making this work for you.
CAN I HIRE YOU FOR ONE-ON-ONE COACHING/ AN IN-PERSON WORKSHOP / TO SHOOT MY IMAGES FOR ME?
That depends - do you live in Bali? Just kidding. I do host a select number of in person coaching sessions or workshops each year. I offer photography coaching at a rate of $399/hour. If you're interested in hosting an in person workshop, or hiring me to shoot for you, email me directly at email@example.com and we can talk more about your specific needs.
