Last year, I made the decision that I was going to produce more educational materials for photographers! I have such a huge desire to help other growing photographers, and a burden to provide education. I remember sitting at the desk for my job monitoring our school’s track, having my laptop out, soaking up everything I could find online on how to be a better photographer! I wanted this dream to be a reality. Online education was no where near where it is today, and that just thrills my heart there’s so much available now to growing photographers!
So throughout the last year, I’ve created several small guides (I like to refer to them as Simple Guides!) about basic photography tips and techniques! I wanted to provide other photographers with what I’ve learned on basic or advanced topics from being a photographer for almost 5 years. I wanted a place these guides could all be together to make it easy to find and access them! I include a lot of images in these guides to make it easy for visual learners to understand, and also don’t hold back with what I’ve learned about that topic!
Another thing I’ve been doing is creating flat lay images for photographers, bloggers, and creatives to help their Instagram feed or online presence! It can be so hard finding content during off-season or busy times, and I love creating images others can use to help during these times! Having a beautiful Instagram feed can attract your ideal clients, and I want to help you get there! When I saw amazing feedback from the fall pumpkin and coffee images I gave out for free, I decided to create more images for December that had a chic Christmas office theme. I wanted a place these images could be easily accessed!
So after several hours spent cooped up in my office, thus begat the online shop- a home for educational photography resources and stock images for photographers and creatives! I can’t believe this dream is a reality, and I pray God would bless this little shop and help it to serve the needs of others. I can’t wait to add more to it in 2018!
I want to give you something since you’ve been so supportive and for reading this! You can head to the shop and use the code SNOWMAN to get $5 off of your first purchase, and also access a free Christmas stock image here!
Thanks so much for your support, and enjoy the new Christa Rene Shop!
