Hey, parents!

Do you have a camera that's collecting dust on a shelf?

Or maybe you use it  but it just isn't giving you the pictures you dreamed?

do you want to LEARN HOW TO GET PROFESSIONAL LOOKING PHOTOS ON YOUR SCHEDULE?

Maybe you have read the manual, spent some time learning online, or even taken a class or two on how to take better pictures.  But real life? Spotlight dance recitals, sunny soccer games, dark band concerts, sunny beach vacations, birds flying through the forest, toddlers in general...that stuff is really hard.  It takes more than just one class or a little reading to master.

taking beautiful pictures IS HARD.

but it could bE  easy for you ONCE YOU LEARN!

It takes regular practice, in little bits of time that you can FIT into yoUR busy life, with guidance from someone who has already
done the work to help you through.

I WANT THAT!

I HIGHLY VALUE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS!!

As a PROFESSIONAL photographer for the past 5 years, 

WHAT IF YOU COULD FINALLY

But as a mother, I know...
the real life magic moments happen at home!

Your favorite photographer isn't there day in and day out...but you are!

Learn how to capture your family and life as it feels to you day in and day out in this monthly membership where you will learn about ALL of the important steps  to take beautiful pictures month by month!

INTRODUCING

All enrollees will be added to the Jill Gum Photo University Students Only Facebook group, where I will do a monthly live online Q+A towards the month's topic (and others!).  I will gather questions in the group throughout the month, and the questions that apply to the group at large will be discussed in an evening Facebook live Q+A that is watchable anytime after for those who can't attend live!

LIVE ONLINE Q+A

Each month, you will also get an E-Book PDF or Worksheet, providing more content or help towards the month's topic.  This may include (but is not limited to) activities and checklists to help you put the month's content into practice, a quick-glance guide to help you remember the main points while photographing on your own, or some examples of the photos with settings that I took while teaching.

PDF/WORKSHEET

Each month will include a 30-60 minute video all about the month's specific must-learn topic to help you photograph your life.  
 Depending on what the month's topic calls for, you will see me:
-Teaching to the camera while walking through real photography situations
-Photographing real people showing the topic in action
-Teaching in my "classroom" with my computer

Curious how much it will cost you to take
amazing pictures??

It's SO EASY to think that our phones or "auto" settings are good enough...and I get it! I totally believe in taking pictures whether GREAT or not-so-great to at least capture the moments! But the difference here? HUGE. All straight out of camera without adjustments, all based on gear and settings.  You could learn to make this difference in your photos NOW!

6.5 years ago he came into this world and completely changed our lives.  And something that was once a side hobby became a necessity for me...I had to figure out how to capture it all...exactly as it felt!

This is my sweet family and that far-too-tall-for-my-liking boy in front? He was MY reason to learn to use my camera in a more meaningful way.

The heart behind it all

I spent a year long maternity leave teaching myself (with the help of trusty Google) how to use my camera and practicing non-stop.  I figured it out...but it took SO MUCH LONGER THAN IT NEEDED TO!
There was no road map for me, no path to make it easier, no one to guide me through the questions and challenges and things I needed to know.

Because I taught for 8 years before staying home with these 3 babies, teaching is a huge part of me.

Which is why I want to be YOUR road map, guide, and teacher.  I know how to make the complex both simple and fun.  And I know how to teach you to take the amazing pictures of your family that you dream of!

Q: The Jill Gum Photo U says it's a "membership program." What does that mean?

A: Instead of the content ALL being rolled out at once (talk about overwhelming!), the content will be rolled out one month at a time starting March 1st!  This way, students can learn about one specific concept and spend the month putting it into practice (while getting support in the FB group).  Then, students can move on and learn about a new topic once they have a good handle on the previous content and are ready!

Q: I don't have a DSLR (or maybe even know what one is)...is this for me?

A: This class is for anyone who wants to learn photography with ANY type of camera!!  We will discuss topics that are more applicable to cameras that can change lenses (DSLR or mirrorless cameras), BUT anyone with a digital camera or even a good iPhone and some creativity could benefit from this membership!  It may make you want a "fancy camera" in the future though!!

NEXT QUESTION

Q: Is this course for people who want to start a BUSINESS or for people who just love photographing?

A: This class could be for both.  We will not be covering specific business topics but ALL of the topics covered are topics that photographers with a business would need to know!  It is definitely geared for the hobbyist/someone who just loves taking pictures as well since we won't be covering business-specific topics! We will be covering topics all related to actually using your camera to take great pictures!

Q: Do I have access to the content forever, and can I join anytime?

A: For as long as you are continuously enrolled as an active student in the Jill Gum Photo University, you can watch, rewatch, and rewatch again every month's content any time you want.  Whenever you join the University, your content begins with whatever is released during that month and onward- so you can join anytime, and you begin with the newest content! Each month is standalone (so you didn't miss anything you NEED to see to understand!).

NEXT QUESTION

Q: What exactly will be covered as topics in the course?

Right now, I have 24 months of content planned out all around lighting, composition, style, editing, story telling, camera settings, etc.  But as we go through, I will be learning from my students what they need to review, need extra help on, or want more details on and will adjust the content as we go.  Each month will be focused on a specific topic, and while we will reference topics learned in previous months' content, the months will also be available for individual purchase (at a higher rate for non Photo U Students).

NEXT QUESTION

Q: What will I get/see each month?

A: Students will be a part of a membership site where they will view the content each month.  Each month's content will consist of a 30-60 minute video (either with me photographing and talking to the camera about what I'm doing, photographing while I'm working with clients, or teaching in my office/from my computer depending on what the topic calls for), a supplemental PDF or worksheet to go along with the video, and an online live Q+A (with replay after, because again, I understand #reallife!) with student questions.

NEXT QUESTION

Q: I have never used my camera before--is this membership for me or is it for my friend who has used her camera for years on Manual?

A: This membership is for you BOTH!  We will start super basic--but it will very quickly turn into content that could improve any photographer wherever they are in their journey.  As for the early content for someone who is advanced, a review of the basics or seeing what settings and preferences another photographer has is always helpful!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NEXT QUESTION

Q: I have taken a live workshop with you before. Is the Photo U still for me?

A: Yes, my friend! In fact, I created it just with you in mind! After seeing how HELPFUL it was for some of my students to take my workshop a second time this past summer, it inspired me to create a way where everyone could learn this content --shooting in manual, shooting with great style and lighting and composition-- over and over again in a monthly format! This isn't the sort of topic you learn once and master--it takes recurring guidance and practice! The workshop content is just 1 month's worth of content in this year of learning!
