Photography In Focus: Success Stories
The REAL LIFE Reasons You Should GET ON BOARD
I am an amateur photographer and, years ago, I took lessons from local photographers in my city to learn basic Photography! Years went by but I was unhappy with my pictures, always wondering why they were never crisp or sharp. The 5 day free lessons by Learn Photography company introduced me to Jana. Jana’s amiable persona and her knowledge tugged me to the Photography in focus course! This is by far one of the best photography courses I have ever taken! I thoroughly enjoy the weekly assignments! Lessons are lucid, videos are easy to follow with great examples! I love that lessons are self paced and we get to do our assignments in our own environment! It’s not like in a boring class room stuck with just one example to deal with and we are not in a place outdoors which we are not used to! With students from various cities, we learn from each other every week as everyone has a different perspective! If you are on the fence of taking your photography from Meh to wow this is the course! You will not regret it ! From learning how your camera functions to composition to lighting, it’s a comprehensive Course! I would say go for it; best investment ever !
The Masterclass with Jana and the Learn Photography team has made me step outside my comfort zone and allowed me to expand my photography knowledge. The practice is all self taught in a way but with the weekly check-ins I feel like my skills have grown a lot more than if I was doing it completely alone. The ‘homework’ has me trying things I never thought I would, and its really pushed my development. I would highly recommend Learn Photography, and actually have to a few friends, because its so user friendly, the team is great, and it's worldwide. I can’t wait to see what my photography grows into with the help of Jana and her team.
I can not speak highly enough about the PIF Masterclass course. The course material is presented in a clear and simple way that I can continue to review it over and over again, but having access to Jana to answer questions weekly and help solidify the information has been the key to my learning. The feedback from both the LP team and my classmates has helped with my confidence and ability to get the shot I am trying to get. The Learn Photography team has taken me from an absolute beginner, afraid to pick up her camera, to someone who is excited each time I get to pull out my camera, take a picture and be so happy with the result. I only wish I had started sooner.
I can't begin to express not only how much I am enjoying these masterclasses but also how much I am learning. Yes, it's hands-on! Yes, the exercises are easy to get done on your own! Yes, you get easy access to get your questions answered quickly! But I think one of my favourite parts are the small focus groups which give you a great opportunity to meet others all across the country but also to support and encourage one another too. If you don't understand or grasp something the first time, no problem. Just rewind and try it again! Not sure how to find something on your particular model of camera? There's a guide on the main page specifically for your camera! There's always the Zoom check-ins twice a week too. You are not the only one with the same question, I can guarantee it.

I am presently enrolled In Jana's Masterclass [Ken has now completed his course] and have really enjoyed it. I thought I knew everything about photography but have picked up so much and we are not even halfway through the course. The pace is excellent and both Jana and her husband have done a great job communicating the skills to be an excellent photographer. The assignments are enjoyable and it is a great feeling to get feedback on your photos. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone wanting to learn everything about photography or just brush up on skills you may have forgotten. Bravo!
Learn Photography Canada is an amazing company that offers great courses.
I am taking their Masterclass course at this time and I am so happy I decided to take it to continue to improve my photography. I have learned a lot.
The Team at LPC are always there to help you to answer any questions you may have and to make you a better photographer.
Anyone that loves photography and is looking to improve their skills, I really recommend their Masterclass course.
Would I recommend the Photography in Focus masterclass? Absolutely %! This program is amazing. It is indepth, detailed and super well put together. The instructors are personable, eager to help and so encouraging. My skills and confidence have grown by leaps and bounds. If you want to go from taking okay pictures to amazing photographs, this is the place to be.
I joined PIF Masterclass with some trepidation. I am a beginner photographer and everything was new to me. Now, barely halfway through, I don’t feel like a beginner anymore. I know how to use my camera, I know how to compose a successful shot and I have the confidence to do both. This class lit me on fire for photography. I can’t wait to start each new week’s lessons. Picking up my camera has become a joy. The natural enthusiasm that Jana and James show for the subject, and the deep knowledge they have has given me a new passion for photography that will continue long after the course is done. Thanks Jana and James.
I've really enjoyed the Photography in Focus: Masterclass! I really appreciate the two check-ins as sometimes I can't make the first one, so it's nice and flexible with my schedule. My favorite part is how welcoming the group is, and seeing everyone's weekly photo exercises is really motivating and helps me get out and take more photos! Jana is very helpful in the Zoom meetings, and even though some of the content is content I have taken in other Learn Photography courses, I always learn something new because there are new perspectives and new questions asked with each group. My biggest takeaway is the inspiration I get from seeing everyone's weekly photos. Having a lot of fun with the course!
I joined the Masterclass as I wish to go professional, honestly I was not expecting to learn a lot and especially in my 1st week. Wow! I got reminded very quickly how much of the basic information we forget to use. Every week I am challenged a little more and it is showing in my photography. Jana works to make sure we all are very good at the level we are at. In hindsight I am glad I am in this course as it is both challenging and can force you to step out of your comfort zone. Only at week 5 and so looking forward to the upcoming weeks.
What can I say about photography in focus except WOW!!! I signed up for this masterclass as a beginner. I knew how to take the lens cover off and take a picture but that's about it. Jana, James and the rest of the team at Learn Photography Company made it so easy to learn. They explain things clearly and concisely and encourage you through every step. I cannot say enough about these amazing people and the courses they teach. I learned so much and can't wait to learn more.
Thanks for everything!!!!
*We're just waiting on Heidi's photos!*
Wow! The last 12 weeks have been amazing. (That’s an understatement!) I have progressed from being a total “point, shoot, and pray for the best” photographer to being on my way to becoming confident in getting the shot I wanted. I’ve always believed that to reach a goal without wasting time and effort, I must surround myself with experts. I hit the jackpot when I joined this group. I have learned an enormous amount from how a camera works to many types of photography, composition, and editing. Every step of the way, Learn Photography Company was available to support, guide, and encourage me to the next step. I’ll never regret taking this program.
I would highly recommend your Photography In Focus class to anyone.
When I began this course I was stuck on the “Auto” mode of my camera, unhappy with my results most of the time, thinking, I should be getting better photos out of this camera. I am happy to say now after 12 weeks that I have a sound foundation, understanding of how to use my camera settings and the quality of my photos have greatly improved.
I was drawn to your Photography In Focus course because of Jana’s enthusiasm, motivation and passion for photography. I have taken other online photography courses, but I have truly learned more from your course than any other. From your concise videos, real life exercises, to your course notes, this is a completely fantastic package. I found your “Live Checkins” and “Office Hours” to be invaluable, and sets your program apart from others. Your team of instructors and the Facebook Group have given me such confidence in my abilities.
I was sitting and scrolling through my facebook ads and saw the Learn Photography Company PIF Masterclass advertisement and thought 'Well now is the time to get off the couch and try to make my aspiring photographer hopes a reality. I should learn the real guts of my camera and define which path I am going to take in photography. From day 1 of this 12 week course, Jana had encouraged and pushed me with infectious charisma that I am THAT good and only getting better at the skills I was learning through her courses. The community with other photographers of all skills and levels through weekly virtual meetings and check-ins helped to keep me on track. The weekly layout of tutorials were broken up in such a way that it was not overwhelming and still held me accountable for homework assignments on a weekly basis. I am now being asked by family members and friends to take family portraits, birthday portraits, senior portraits, couples portraits. My friends through social media are eagerly awaiting my posted photos and say they bring them such joy and happiness. All I needed was a gentle push and confidence in my skills and I can see the start of my photography business in the near future. Jana and her team are the cheerleaders I needed to make my vision through photography come true. I am looking forward to a continued relationship and more classes taught through Learn Photography Company to come. Just do it! I did and am loving every minute of it!
LPC has given me a gift that I will treasure forever! I can now confidently pick up my camera and capture the moments I want. Jana and her team have put together easy to follow classes that break things down so even the greenest of photographers will be able to learn. The Photography in Focus Masterclass combined several of those classes in a fantastic 12 week program that takes you to the next level. The best part is they are always there offering encouragement and providing extra support as needed. If you are passionate about photography, this is the team you will want to work with.
If you are interested in capturing beautiful photos and understanding how to use your camera, you are in the correct place.
I came across the 5-day challenge accidentally on Facebook. The teaching style and methods were exactly what I needed to take out my Canon Rebel T3 that had been sitting in my closet for 6 years. I just did not know how to use it. I tried teaching myself by reading books and taking local classes. Still confused, I just resorted to my iPhone camera to take pictures. What I needed was a professional. A knowledgeable, experienced teacher to show me the ropes of photography and I found it through “ The Learn Photography Company”
Well, let me tell you, this on-line class has more than exceeded my expectations! I have learned more about photography in 12 weeks, including aspects of photography that I have never even heard of. My creativity has taken off and I have found joy in taking photos more than I ever anticipated. Why? Because I now understand my camera and how to capture time, the way I want show it in my photos.
For my portrait assignment, I photographed my niece. The photos came out so well she asked me to be her wedding photographer. Yes, they were that good. Why? Because I know how to use my camera. I understand about depth of field, focal length, camera lenses, composition, and light. I never thought I would have learned night photography-including light painting, zoom lines, photographing lightning strikes, and fireworks.
The weekly video lectures, twice a week group zoom check-ins, assigned small group meetings, and one-on-one help during scheduled office hours, sets this course apart from any other photography class out there. You do not need an expensive camera to take great photos or to take this class. My camera is six years old and no one in our class had the same camera. We shared our homework assignments on a closed Facebook site and collaborated with each other. The zoom check-ins were posted in the closed group so if you are unable to attend you had the ability to watch it at a later time. When I had a question all I had to do was communicate via Email or messenger. The course is set up similar to taking an on-line semester college class.
Jana spent an hour and a half with me one day fixing my computer issues I had with Lightroom. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate about teaching photography.
Thank you Jana for your patience and for everything you have taught me.
