PHOTOGRAPHERS WITHOUT BORDERS

Hey Shutter Sister!

Are You Ready To Become a Creative Photographer?

Hi, I’m Karin, a passionate photographer, devoted educator, and free-spirited human.

I was born with an insatiable curiosity for the lives of people outside my familiar circle and cultures foreign to me. This led to a love for travel and ultimately to a move to Lisbon where I’ve lived for the past couple of years.

One of the (many) things I love so dearly about photography is its mindful nature. Because photography almost demands you to be fully present in the moment.

This powerful nature of photography has helped me to navigate through challenging times in my life many times. 

Because seeing the world through fresh eyes is an empowering and healing experience.

I want to invite you to go on a creative and mindful photography journey with me and start to see your world with fresh eyes.

You’ll discover new perspectives, connect to your creativity, and find your photo mojo along the way. 

What’s the Plan?

6 Weeks of Photography Fun

For six weeks we are going to open your eyes to the abundance, wonder, and beauty in your everyday surroundings.

  • You come out of it enriched with loads of inspiring and creative photography ideas so you never run out of photography subjects again. 
  • Each module is built around a theme and consists of a video, text lessons, and a lot of inspiring photo prompts.
  • The modules will give you inspiration, ideas, and insights into the theme as well as inspiration from other photographers.

You can make the assignments with whatever camera you have including your phone camera.

  • There’ll be some practical photography advice but nothing too technical. It’s an inspiration course, not an ‘instruction’ course. 
  • Every week you’re going to photograph! Inside the house or outside.
  • You’ll be inspired and encouraged to expand your creativity.  

I’m also inviting you to join our private See Fresh community of creative wonder seekers on Facebook.

  • You can share your photos and enjoy the photos of others. 
  • You can also ask questions in the Facebook group and every week I’ll select a few photos to review and give feedback.
  • At the end of the course, you have created a series of awesome photographs, you’ve learned how to make intentional photos, and who knows you might have made a few photo friends along the way.

“I enjoy the fact that you touch on mindfulness with photography to help us through these difficult times. It is why I chose you. I especially enjoyed the light lesson as it made me think about how light can change the way we view our surroundings and the outcome of the image.”

Lisa Wilson

“All of the lessons got me to think, ask questions and consider the shot. I also really enjoyed your feedback on the shots.”

A Program of 6 Inspiring Themes

collecting color

Colors are awesome and can have a tremendous impact on a photo! They also influence our mood and emotions. That’s why our first theme in See Fresh is color and we all go on a color treasure hunt together. 

shaping light

When it comes to light there’s no way around it in photography. Without it, there is no photo. This week you open your eyes to all sorts of light because the beauty of light is it’s always changing.

finding stillness

In our third week together, we explore stillness, still life photography, and composition. You gain insights into why composition is so important. And how to infuse your photography with stillness.

seeking adventure

A week full of comfort zones and how to step out of them, creative mysteries and how to unveil them, and finally inner critics and how to shush them. Oh, and of course we also go on a couple of photography adventures.

telling stories

As humans, we are wired for story. This week you receive the tools to tell intentional and eye-catching visual stories. Because photographing and sharing your stories connects you to your life and the world around you.

expressing gratitude

You may not be aware of it but photography and gratitude are intimately intertwined. Trust me, during our last week together you discover how well they go together by photographing and thus focussing on the good stuff.

Here’s What You’ll Receive

6 Video & Text Modules

In each module, you find a lesson exploring the theme. You can digest this lesson through video, text, or an MP3. Whatever you prefer. To receive inspiration from different sources the second part of each module provides you with resources to explore. In the third part, you go out or stay in to photograph yourself. 

30+ Photo Assignments

Each module comes with specific photography assignments and exercises to further explore the theme. They are designed to fit into your daily schedule and are tailored for photographing inside and outside your house. If 30+ sounds overwhelming to you don’t worry. You can pick and choose the prompts that speak to you only. 

See Fresh Community

You can share your photos for the assignments in the private See Fresh Facebook Group. This is also the place where you can interact with your fellow wonder seekers, give and receive feedback and encouragement, discuss the lessons, and ask me questions. Every week, I select a few photos and give my personal feedback.

Bonus: Creative Spark Files

As a bonus, I’m giving you the Creative Spark PDF files at the end of the course. This set of PDFs will give you inspiration and encouragement even when the course is over. They are full of creative photography ideas and projects. You can choose from simple treasure hunt prompts more time-consuming projects, or start your own gratitude project.
