Whilst online courses for beginners are amazing, this hands on mentorship will fast track you with experience. If it is one thing I have learnt, that no matter how much you read, until you put it into practice and add your creative flare it will not mean anything.

So let’s get you started today on the camera, learning and shooting and creating a portfolio from day one!

You can organise a couple or family or muse of your choice to gain hands on experience behind the camera with Carissa by your side to teach you how to use your camera and how to interact and pose your clients in the most natural way.
