The Flourish Framework started life as a small group workshop which was originally known as “Photography for Business - How to take better photos on your smartphone" - catchy, right?! *sarcasm intended*
The workshop was designed for creatives, makers and content creators who wanted to learn how to use a smartphone to efficiently capture high-quality images to reinforce their business brand.
Then along came Covid…
With face-to-face workshops no longer possible, I seized the opportunity to rework the content as a self-guided online course and The Flourish Framework was born!
So why have I renamed it “The Flourish Framework”? Apart from wanting a snappier title (!) I wanted a name that highlighted the skill-building that I aim to provide with this course. Essentially, I aim to provide you with the foundations, the bare bones, the scaffolding which you can use to build your own photographic style and approach - hence “framework”. The “flourish” part of the name, as well as providing a pleasing alliteration with the word “framework”, links back to "blossom" in my business name and helps to convey the growth and knowledge that I hope you will experience throughout the course. Keep scrolling to find out more.
The course has been created for beginners to provide a foundation in smartphone photography. Many aspects of the course can be applied to all types of photography but there is a particular emphasis on smartphone photography to ensure that you can use the techniques with the camera that you always have with you - the one in your pocket! It includes the basics of lighting and composition and provides you with advice on how to make small changes to improve your images almost immediately.
My aim is to provide you with the tools and the confidence to elevate your photographs using simple methods. To ensure that the course is accessible for as many people as possible, the only assumption I make is that you possess a smartphone! You won't need to invest in any additional equipment, although there are suggestions about how this can help if you decide to do so.
The next course will begin on Monday 3rd May and will last for 5 consecutive weeks. There will be a weekly Zoom taking place every Wednesday evening at 7pm for the duration of the course which will focus on one of the five course sections per week. As soon as the course begins, however, you will have immediate access to the entire online course content including a workbook which you can download, print and use to fill in your own thoughts and ideas. You can work through the course as quickly as you like but I would recommend tackling one section per week alongside the Zoom meetings. As a final incentive, you will also have access to the private facebook group where you can ask for help and feedback.
