Hey, friend! I’m Amy.
I’m a product and brand photographer turned educator, and I teach makers, artists, and creative entrepreneurs how to take gorgeous photos for their business.
On this page, you will discover why I’m the go-to expert for product and brand photography for business owners, some fun facts about me (like that I’m ambidextrous), why I do what I do, and my journey from being a struggling photographer with a dreadful day job to a thriving six-figure creative entrepreneur.
So what do I know, anyway?
Let’s be real – there’s A LOT of information on product photography out there. The problem is that the information is either too basic, just straight up wrong, OR it’s way too complicated and goes right over your head.
There are two main things you should know about me –
I know what I’m talking about, and I revel in the concept of simplicity.
A lot of photographers are all about complex setups, expensive equipment and lights, and using more technical jargon than you can shake a stick at. Not this gal. While I can, and sometimes need to, use complex setups and extra equipment, I prefer the basics.
That’s why I’ve become the go-to person to teach product photography to makers, and brand photography to the wider online entrepreneur community.
Through my signature, no-muss no-fuss teaching style, my students learn exactly what they need to know through clear, simple steps, which enables them to take gorgeous product photos, quickly and easily. These beautiful images allow them to effectively market their products, and thrive in the online marketplace.
My Journey From Then To Now
Fun Facts About Amy
⬢ I live in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada, which looks like it was painted by Bob Ross, with my husband (Jeff), two kids (Nate and Alice), and our boston terrier (Huxley).
⬢ I grew up riding horses, both for enjoyment and competitively. I even became certified to teach others to ride. I don’t currently have a horse, but I have no doubt that I will again in the future.
⬢ I’m ambidextrous. Which sounds cool, but I don’t instantly know left from right because I don’t have a dominant side.
⬢ I own 240 acres (97 hectares) of Acadian forest, which I inherited. It has been passed down through the family since the 1800s. It’s never been harvested, and I’m very protective of it, and the wildlife and biodiversity that lives on the land.
⬢ I love nature, the outdoors, rural life, gardening, and can’t wait to have my own farm in the not-so-distant future.
⬢ I am an avid gamer – video games, mostly, with the occasional tabletop game thrown in for funsies. I wear my “huge nerd” badge with great pride.
