The Click Love Grow Enthusiast Photography Course changed my life!
Before completing the 8 week course I was a point and shoot, let's hope for the best (hope I got a good photo out of 50). Most of my photos would be blurry and out of focus! But in just 8 weeks I am becoming confident in knowing the settings and lighting to achieve a great photo.
I look at things differently now (more creatively). I love how I was a complete beginner shooting in auto, to now being able to shoot in full manual!
My photography I have improved ten fold! No more blurry photos! I can take great photos of my girls now that make them pop and not everything else in the picture.
I loved every minute of the course and learnt so much in a short time... Thank you for changing my life into a creative one Click Love Grow!

Now, I can take the images of my kids that I used to pay others for!
Every part of my photography has improved since Click Love Grow's Photography Course. I have always loved photography, but never felt I had the time to learn properly being busy with work/study and kids. I had tried a few times, and different courses but gave up.
Enrolling in Louise’s Enthusiast course was the turning point for my photography. I can finally wrap my head around the technical jargon and use my camera in manual mode
I am in several photography groups online, some are helpful and supportive, others not so much. The online group aspect of the Click Love Grow course is invaluable. I love growing and learning with such a wonderfully supportive community of women.
I now understand exposure and how to use my manual settings to achieve the vision in my head.
I would 100%, without a doubt, recommend the Click Love Grow Enthusiast Course.
I’ve had an entry level DSLR for a few years now, but have only ever used it in auto.
With Click Love Grow, I found the perfect environment to learn and finally – FINALLY – it was all sinking in!! Ever since then I have only used my camera in full manual – something I didn’t feel was possible in such a short period of time!
The environment is so friendly and supportive, and the lessons are presented in a way that make it fun and easy to learn. I have gone from full auto on my camera, to full manual. I have allowed myself to recognise my passion for photography, and given myself permission to learn it. I’m excited, because the environment is so un-intimidating. I’m so glad I found it!

I absolutely LOVED this course!! I have taken different photography courses over the years and none of them have taught me how to use my manual settings as I have wanted. So, thank you so much Louise!
Jill Winkler Douglas
Thank you for giving me the boost to continue in my journey!!
I had been interested in taking this course as soon as I learned about it, I had taken a few classes before and also read tons on photography, but I never really made the choice to jump into an online interactive course! I am so very glad that I did!!
I absolutely loved the format that Lou uses in her videos, they were easy to follow and full of great information. It was great how the lessons begin with composition and allow you the freedom to start in auto so that you can feel accomplished from the start.
Each lesson builds on the lesson before to add layers to what you are learning giving you the confidence to feel like you can take some really artful photos and move way beyond snap shots.
I have to say that my favorite part of this course was the support given by Lou and Pam and all the wonderful participants, each person offered constructive criticism and great advice, the graduates Facebook page is still an ongoing learning environment and it has been a wonderful learning and growing time!!
Louise, you have an amazing concept here - something that I haven't seen anywhere else. The pace of the course plus the variety of teaching techniques is great.Joanne Young
Thanks to Click, Love, Grow for helping me make what I thought was impossible, possible!
Prior to enrolling in a photography course, I felt I knew a little about photography. I knew how to point and click the camera and capture some images. What I wasn't capturing, was the image in my head.
A friend of mine introduced me to Click, Love, Grow and reading previous testimonials, I knew this course was for me. A group of like minded females with a passion to improve their photography skills. I loved the video sessions each week.
Louise's enthusiastic presentations were a series of brain explosions - little oh and ah ha moments merged into one. Easy to follow workbooks and a fabulous support network in Facebook made for a fun filled 8 weeks! I have gained so much confidence in shooting in manual mode. I find myself planning photographs and getting the image in my head on the screen.
The continued support by the Grads page continues to inspire and challenge myself to succeed in getting the 'nailed it' shots.
Course includes lifetime access to all training resources, participation in our creative community, access to instructors and more!
Course Begins: 26th July 2016

Thank you so very much still doesn't cover how grateful I am for what you have taught me. Fantastic course, worth every penny. I have learnt so much! You have changed the way I photograph forever and that is so awesome!!Katie Trimper
Do I need a DSLR to complete this course?
A DSLR is certainly handy for this photography course, however any camera that lets you adjust the aperture and shutter speed settings will be great. It’s worth pointing out – this course is NOT about getting you to buy fancy equipment or fifteen different lenses. We teach you to work with what you’ve got, and make the most of your camera’s features. (And as a quick heads up: if you’re trying to decide which camera to purchase, we discuss what you should be looking for in week 1. This is a really handy primer to take with you to the camera store, and you can then continue on with the rest of the course work.)
My life is a little frantic sometimes, what if I fall behind on the weekly assignments?
Don’t worry – there’s no such thing as falling behind! Once you’ve got access to the course material, you can continue to jump back in as often as you need to go over the lessons or refresh your skills. The weekly assignments are critiqued every week, but it doesn’t matter which lesson you’re up to.
I’m a real beginner – I can barely turn my camera on. Is this course right for me?
Absolutely! The aim of this course is to walk you through the entire process of understanding your camera and taking great photos, right from the basics. Remember, you can go through the content as many times as you like until you feel confident with all features and settings. By the end of the course, you’ll be wrangling your camera like a pro!
Will I always have access to the content?
Yes! Once we complete the course you will have lifetime access to all the content and materials from the course, so you can go back and refer at any time!
I've taken other photography classes and feel quite comfortable my settings, will I still get value from this course?
Yes! Absolutely, not only does our course revise all the settings if you’re pretty ok with them, but we go into detail on how they work together, and give you techniques to apply in lots of different lighting and shooting scenarios! We also prompt you with very hands on challenges to simply get out there and start taking photos… which is always the key to improving!
I really enjoyed completing this course and I am so thankful for the online delivery, as well as being a member of an incredibly supportive online community. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this course to anyone.Brianna Sellens
You know how they say that word of mouth is the best advertisement? And you know how they say that a picture is worth a thousand words? Well I've had FOUR of my friends see the difference in my photos on Facebook and ask me about the course! They are now keen to join in the new year's group.Toni Laws
A huge thank you to Lou and Pam from Click Love Grow. I have done quite a few photography courses/workshops over the years and this one has been the most valuable by far. From the presentation of the lessons to the challenges and critiquing, I have learnt something every step of the way. I love the online Facebook Group where you feel comfortable sharing your images and engaging in conversation with other passionate photographers. It has been such a positive experience for me. One which has not only taught me new technical skills but also opened my creative eye to a world of photographic possibilities and re-ignited my passion for photography. Thanks to this course I feel ready to take my photography to the next level.Louise Napoletano
It is such a great course. I can't believe how far I have come in eight very short weeks. I'm sad (and feel a bit lost) that the course is over but I have learnt such valuable tips and have "met" some really nice people through the course. They are so encouraging and helpful. Lou and Pam are so knowledgeable and I feel so lucky that they are willing to share all their experience and insider tips and tricks! I have had an absolute blast and would highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you!Melissa Bernard
I enjoyed the course immensely. Thank you. Your course was like having you both there in person. I never would have thought an online course would feel like you were there holding my hand through the lessons!Carolyn McPherson
