Hey, I'm Carly! I know first-hand what a blessing photography has been for our family, from the memories I've been able to beautifully document to the income it has provided for our family to the friendships I've made... photography has opened so many doors for me. I'm passionate about helping you get the most out of your camera, too! It's so much more than pretty pictures.

I'm a wife, mama, dog mom, and duck mom... yep, duck mom! I live in rural Oregon, where traffic jams are caused by cattle drives and slow moving tractors. I've been a photographer since 2007. When I'm not out shooting, I'm probably reading a good book, tending to our hobby-farm, chasing the kids, or planning our next adventure.

What Students Are Saying

"This was everything I was looking for in a course on manual mode! I wanted to learn more about my camera but felt I didn't have the time or knowledge to dig up relevant information. Carly had me covered! I learned so much through Carly's course in a relatively short amount of time. Her videos are fun, efficient, and thorough...a combination this working mama really appreciates! Her inspiration and information have given me a springboard to practice, find my own style, and expand beyond the basics with my mirrorless camera." - Erika M.

"This is a great course! Carly is personable and fun to listen to, and explains Manual mode in a clear, easy-to-understand way, with examples to illustrate her points. I liked that I could go back and re-watch previous lessons as I learned more, so that I more fully understand what she taught at the beginning. This is definitely going to take some practice, but I feel like I have a solid foundation to build on. Thanks, Carly! Can't wait to see what's next." - Lisa J.

"I can't say enough good things about how Carly explains how your DSLR camera works. She describes each function with ease & clarity and her downloadable PDF's are awesome. I liked having assignments where I could record the outcome of my photo samples. Carly's class made me feel like I finally have control over my camera instead of my camera having control over me." - Rachel M.
