Kate Rankin embarked on our Enthusiast Photography Course with the simple desire to take better photos of her kids. But in her words, the course left her hungry for more, and it opened a Pandora’s box of a world of photography that ultimately changed her life!
Today I had the pleasure of chatting live in our Grad’s group to the lovely Kate, who lives near Byron Bay in NSW, Australia with her husband and her kids Willow, Evie and Eli, aged between 10 and 4 years.
For Kate, the Enthusiast Course taught her how to use her camera in manual mode, and she mastered the fundamentals of light and compositional skills… but once the course finished she felt so ready for more!
She soon realised the only next step was learning even more, and the Advanced Photography Course was the natural choice because she loved the way CLG courses were run, and the supportive and non-judgemental community.
The Advanced Photography Course gave her so many a-ha moments, that she began seeing the world through a photographer’s eyes. It gave her the courage to push the boundaries of her style and abilities, to use different techniques to achieve different outcomes intentionally, and propelled her growth as a photographer very rapidly.
Watch and learn how the Advanced Course gave her the skills and confidence to transition from her career as a midwife to full time photographer in her business Kate Elise Photography!
Kate’s Photography Journey
We love sharing a before and after photos from our grads, as it’s the best way to highlight how the course changes their photos. This first shot was taken before Kate started with CLG, and the photos that follow it were all taken after she graduated from the Advanced Photography Course.
Thank you so much Kate for your time, words and beautiful images! If you want to check out more of her work, you can find her over here.
If you’re already shooting in manual mode, on our Advanced Photography Course you will learn to shoot with confidence in any scenario, and push yourself creatively to find and develop your style through intensive 1:1 critique on your work. Our next course is starting soon… join our wait list to get an email when we go on sale!
