He ultimately achieves a sublime style of photography and a sense of humour that I’m so in love with!

Frequently Asked Questions

The course starts the moment you enroll and you can go at your own pace. The course content is initially released over 14 days so as not to overwhelm you from the start, but you are free to take as long as you want to finish the course. You can request to have full access from the start but remember the faster you learn, the faster you forget.

This is either a one-year subscription or lifetime access, depending on the option you choose. You can log back in at any point and join a Q&A Zoom session if you would like to discuss anything in more depth. You will have access to my school email address, and as a student, you will be able to ask me for advice at any time

This course is pretty much all new in concept. I have used 10 previous items within the 47 videos. The vast majority of the content is newly recorded and the scripts/ texts are newly written.

It is different from the previous videos and my eBook because it brings together all the knowledge and information into one coherent course. All my BTS videos will be published exclusively within this course.

If you are on the fence, my advice is to enroll and check out the content. There are 14 days of drip feed and once you have access to the complete course you will be able to determine the true value of the course to you. I have a 30-day full money-back guarantee so you can activate this if you are not completely satisfied.

You can do that for sure but you must understand that the majority of the content in this course is unique. I’ve not held anything back and you can email me anytime with questions that arise. You will also get access to a series of Zoom seminars where I answer student questions.

You can attend as many Zoom sessions as you like within your membership period. They are currently scheduled approximately every 5 to 6 weeks with a break in August. All the dates for 2024 and the login details are already published in the course curriculum.

There are times in all of our lives when restrictions on time or money prevent us from doing the things that we love. It is easier to find the time to watch the videos and take on the knowledge so when you can set up shoots again you will be starting from a far better place.

Yes, definitely! Let me explain.

Picking the right lighting kit might seem tricky. You might wonder: Should I use a flash or a continuous light? How powerful should the light be? And which accessories are best?

This class is here to help you feel confident about your choices.

You might already have some or even all of the gear that you need. We’ll figure out together what works best for you, so that you don’t waste money on stuff you don’t need.

Being able to create your own light opens up a world of possibilities that don’t exist using just the available light. When you use your lighting kit well, your pictures will look all the more fabulous for it.

With the right tools and new skills, you’ll gain the confidence to capture far more creative portraits.

A one-day workshop with me costs about $500, A multi-day adventure costs $5000 and I’m well aware that these prices are well out of the reach of a lot of photographers who want to learn my skills. This was one of the reasons I set about creating this masterwork containing all the knowledge and wisdom that I possess. I started by restricting the content to portraiture lighting but as you will know by now, I’ve expanded the curriculum into other related areas of photography. It doesn’t stop here though. I’ll be adding new content and updating older content from time to time too. There is also direct contact via email support with me. I don’t use ghostwriters or virtual PAs. I respond to all my emails personally. All things considered, I think the course pricing represents good value.

You will learn what you need to know now and be ready for the summer season. The earlier you learn how to use lights and to take beautiful portraits, the more fun you will have in life. You might only have a few valuable years left, so it’s important to become excellent at portrait photography as quickly as possible.

Once you have completed this course, that nagging fear of shooting portraits will be gone and a new level of confidence will empower your creativity. You’ll want to get out and shoot knowing that you have a greater skill level to utilize. You won’t be alone either. You can reach out to me for help and advice via email. When you are on a shoot you might find yourself asking the question “What would Damien do here?” and then wait for the inspiration to arrive.

I want you to be completely satisfied with this course. If for any reason you’re not delighted, I will give you a full refund, so you can enroll risk-free.
