Jill Gum Photo University by Jill Gum

Jill Gum Photo University

Continuous education on how to capture your life as you live it.
You can learn how to use your DSLR camera (or any camera!) to capture your family and your life as you live it!

In this monthly membership, we cover shooting in manual, and how to achieve the lighting, composition, editing, style, storytelling, and so much more to take the photos dream of with your photography.  In learning about these topics month after month, students will gain a much fuller understanding of each of these topics, and how they work together to make up each photo.  Click HERE for more details!

Every month, we will cover a new specific topic related to your photography.  The content includes a 30-60+ minute instructional video mini-course, a PDF or worksheet to go along with the video, and a Live Online Booster Q+A session with me in the exclusive student Facebook group.

This membership is for the mom, student, or hobbyist who wants the flexibility to learn all this content on their own time (including in one long marathon weekend if you have the time!).  Learn on your schedule, in your ideal timeframe, and watch again and again all while having access to me and your fellow students in the FB group for questions and feedback!

Sign up today for access to the bonus Mastering Manual Mini-Course and the first month's content! Click HERE for many more details about the Photo University Membership.
