Sign up to download my free ebook on how to take better candid photos of your everyday life. You’ll also get a biweekly e-mail further explaining one tip, with examples & exercises, so you can learn a bit at a time and dramatically improve your photos over the next 6 weeks.

I put together 52 weeks of photography assignments so you can practice your photography skills, no matter what level you’re at. You can join any time and get weekly emails of the challenges. The main point of this is to get you using your camera at least once a week, if not daily.

Camera Basics is my self-guided online course for new photographers or anyone who hasn’t fully mastered the settings on their DSLR or other manual-exposure camera. It’ll take you step-by-step through all the settings you need to get great photos of the people (and cats) you love.

Who runs this site?

I’m Lara Eichhorn. I’ve been excited about photography since I was a kid, but I’ve run a photography business in Victoria, BC, Canada since 2009. My business is focused on weddings, portraits, and documentary photography for families and businesses. I’ve been teaching beginner photographers since January 2015 through in-person workshops and private lessons. I love helping people pursue their passion for photography and I live for that moment when everything clicks in my students’ minds.
