Blogging Your Way: Photography + Styling Bootcamp

02.11.15

Starting off the new week with some exciting news! I’m thrilled to announce that I will be teaching the next Blogging Your Way e-course alongside the incredibly talented husband-and-wife duo Jack and Valentina Fussell and of course the founder (Holly Becker, author and founding editor of decor8). The course is for all bloggers who want to brush up on their photography and styling skills while learning the art of visual storytelling. Bootcamp for Photography + Styling for Bloggers, Instagrammers + Curious Creatives, will run for three weeks from 15 November – 7 December, and is set to be packed with tips and tricks for professional photography and styling for your blog, Instagram and other online platforms, as well as magazines and even books. I am so honoured to be one of the four amazing teachers on this course and am furiously pounding my keyboard as I prepare my lessons.

Why do an e-course? When I started blogging, it didn’t take long before I was completely overwhelmed by everything I saw online. There were endless numbers of bloggers and I wondered what I could add and why people would want to read anything I put out there. I took two of Holly’s e-courses and loved them. I got so much energy and information out of the course material and found them above all, inspirational. And let’s face it, a blog would be rather boring if compiled by someone who was anything less than inspired because in this industry, inspiration is what drives quality content.

The forums are full of other bloggers of various levels, offering an interactive platform aimed at connecting and helping students to learn from each other along the way. Online courses made for and by bloggers are such a great way to learn the ins and outs of the online world and find your place amongst the masses.

When I launched this blog nearly three years ago, I never thought I would be good enough at blogging (or styling or photography) to make anything of it, let alone a career styling and photographing for magazines, books, brands, clients and teaching styling workshops, masterclasses and e-courses. Learning from established bloggers earning a living from their blogs and work surrounding their blogs is ultimately what got the wheels turning for me and gave me the push I needed to taking blogging seriously and launch Avenue as a new platform. I had the push and the encouragement from the right people and now I can’t wait to share all I have learned myself with you guys!

I’ll be giving you an in-depth look at how I work as a stylist and photographer, how I make style choices, how I find stories in the everyday, how I photograph and how I got started in the industry. All of that and so much more is what I am currently putting down on paper for you and it’s all yours if you want it, and that’s not even touching on the whole course, because three other amazing teachers have a ton to show you too.

If you are thinking of starting a blog, are a start-up blogger looking to brush up on your photography and visual identity, are stuck in a rut with your blog and need some inspiration to push you in fresh new directions, then sign up for this course! It’s not expensive but will be so valuable for your business and brand.

Classes are now enrolling, so sign up and I’ll see you in class!

Oh, and that image above? It’s a sneak peek at a lovely bright bedroom restyle project that’ll be making it’s way over to the blog this week.
