Keen to master photography THE FUN WAY
and elevate your photos INTO ART?


Or would you like to learn Photoshop while creating fantastic composites?


Hi, I'm Hayley!

And I'm a creative photography addict.

But it took me a long time to feel confident with a camera because I spent too much time learning and not enough practicing and when I did practice I’d shoot everything in sight with no specific plan to improve.

Then I decided to try learning Photoshop by giving myself weekly compositing projects and within a few months my artworks were winning awards and selling!

Next I attempted a photography trick each week and improved my photography and lighting skills faster than I ever thought possible. All while having so much fun and loving every second.

This process of using creative projects to learn was amazingly successful and completely changed my life and now I want to share it with you, because too many photographers struggle unnecessarily when there’s a far more effective (and fun) way to become a confident photographer and photo editor.
