Mastering Outdoor Photography Mini Course


mastering outdoor photography

Imagine creating amazing outdoor photos anywhere, at anytime of day, even in the worst lighting situations, like full sun (yikes)!

Some side effects of shooting in bad outdoor lighting are squinting, crazy shadows, and disappointing photos!

That fancy dslr camera isn’t as smart as it thinks it is and often gets confused, leaving you fumbling with camera settings and missing shots!

Sometimes the color of your images comes out too orange or too blue leaving your subjects looking like oompa-loompas and smurfs!



Have you dreamed of easily and consistently taking beautiful outdoor images with magical lighting and perfect color?

Your life’s events don’t revolve around good lighting, know how to confidently shoot at any location, at any time of day.

No more ruined shots from squinty eyes, crazy color settings or camera confusion.

Stop stressing and start enjoying shooting outdoors.


Introducing Mastering Outdoor Photography

A video based mini-course designed for creative photographers who are ready to master amazing outdoor photography at any time of day!



I’ve spent the last 5 years of my photography career teaching and mentoring hundreds of photographers to take their photography to the next level.

In my experience, most people are clueless about what good light is and how to find it.  

Trust me when I tell you, “It’s all about the light!”

That is why I created a solution …

Here’s what we’ll cover in this course:

  • My number one secret for finding magical outdoor light.
  • How to find the best light at any outdoor location at any time of day.
  • The biggest mistake most photographers make when shooting outdoors.
  • My easy method for nailing your camera settings every time.
  • How to make your subjects look beautiful, even in full sun.
  • How to perfect your color settings (leave the oompa loompas to Willy Wonka!)


You’ll get access to:

  • 20+ Video lessons with real behind-the-scenes footage and step-by-step examples.
  • The private Facebook Community where you can get support and continue to grow with other awesome photographers.   Plus, I’ll be in there each week commenting and answering questions, etc.
  • Lifetime access to all of the course materials.


The Mastering Outdoor Photography Mini-Course is only $97 



I’m so sure you’ll love the Mastering Outdoor Photography Mini Course that I guarantee it!

You get 30 days to go through the course, and if you’re not happy with it, we’ll give you your money back.

I’m positive you’re going to get the real results you want, so I will put my money where my mouth is and refund you 100%!






How long is the course?  I am so busy this summer.

This self-led course comes with lifetime access so you can take it whenever it works best for YOU.   I have been teaching photography classes for the last 5 years of my career and have learned the best ways to teach people in a fast and efficient way.  The videos in this class are straight to the point and packed with value to get you taking amazing photos as quick as possible.  



How do I access the course?

In this course I cover all my professional outdoor lighting tips and techniques that have taken me years of experience to master.  The step-by-step lessons are perfect for anyone from beginners to more advanced students.   



How much is this course?

I am pretty sure I had a moment of pure inanity when I priced this course at only $97 because it is truly jam packed with value.  If you dream of easily and consistently taking beautiful outdoor images with magical lighting and perfect color, you can’t afford NOT to take this course.  I’m so sure you’ll love the Mastering Outdoor Photography Mini Course that I guarantee it with a 100% refund policy!

Love You Mean It | Lexington Fashion Photographer

Sharing a fashion shoot with the sweet and stylish blogger, Ali Hollins from Love You Mean It Blog.  Coming by way of referral from my OG fashion blogger pal, Beth Parker of Seersucker and Saddles Blog. And oh was she right when she told me just how sweet Ali was. We had a fun shoot together in and around the studio. It’s pretty awesome … For years prior to having my studio, I would bring my clients to this same neighborhood my studio is now located in. We would park and shoot tons of looks all from our cars. Well, as you can imagine an air-conditioned changing room in the studio is a legit better set up!  To get details on these looks, check out Ali’s blog!
Location: Warehouse Block – Kristin Tatem Photography Studio – 316 N. Ashand Ave. Lexington, KY 40502
Would love to chat about a session with you! [email me at for details]
Photographers!  Learn about how I shoot images like these with my photography classes!

everything with photo
Just wanted to give you a heads up that registration for the next online photography class is coming to a close.  The next time I will open up another online beginners class + study group is in the FALL.

There is never enough time, and certainly none for yourself once you finish taking care of everyone else! But these real family moments keep happening right in front of you and the opportunity to capture them in the best way possible keeps slipping by.  

THIS is why I created this online photography class!  I wanted a way teach busy people like you to quickly learn how to use their dslr cameras and start taking beautiful pictures immediately.  Although we will be covering the course materials together in a four week private study group, you will always have lifetime access to the course, PLUS any new videos I add in the future!  You can watch the videos whenever it works best for you.  

My commitment to you …

- Over the course of the next four weeks I will be here to guide you, push you and coach you in improving all areas of your photography.   

I will be checking in the private Facebook group daily to answer questions, offer guidance, photo critiques and will also be scheduling some FB LIVE Q&A time as well.

Included with the online Beginners Photography Class is 30 minutes of one-on-one phone/FaceTime time with me.

I am 110% committed to you seeing REAL results with this class. There is nothing worse to me than imagining someone not deriving great value from my programs, so I truly pour my heart into each class.  I’ve taught this material to hundreds of successful students and have zoned in on the fastest, most comprehensive program to get you taking better pictures immediately.  


Here is the KEY to your SUCCESS ….

There is opportunity for growth in all skill levels from beginner photographers to those of you that consider yourself a little more advanced.  The key to success with this class, and truly with anything, is to be persistent in your commitment to growth.  

This means …

Fully committing yourself to jumping head-first into this course with me to improve your photography.

Being laser focused and dedicating the time to practice each day.

Embracing the BPC Community and not letting fear hold you back from engagement.   This one is important.  Students that ask questions, get answers and continue to grow!


If you’re ready to quit dreaming about taking pretty pictures and start learning HOW, join me for the next round of the online beginners photography class.  What if? What if you dedicated a little time for yourself over the next 4 weeks and walked away with a lifetime of photography skills? Do this for yourself and your family!
