QUESTION:

Are you still getting the same type of traction with still images?

Whether you've already got a client list a mile long or are still working on diving into your creative passion full-time, the impact of the visual representation of your brand  (and your income) depends on the above question.

If you're feeling the effects of the changing tides in the creative realm (you're not alone!) and you know that things aren't going to get better on their own... Keep reading!

Visual storytelling is kind of my thing...

ENROLL NOW

I put off making videos for months after Reels were introduced, (the mental load of it all was HEAVY). But...I had this inkling in the back of my mind, this gut feeling that I was missing out on a great opportunity to grow my visual voice, broaden my client work, and that—who knows—*maybe* I’d even actually enjoy doing it 🤷‍♀️ (although I heavily doubted it...)

Ready? It's time to share your voice with the world.

I haven't worked with a creative client yet, do I even need to think about adding this skillset? 🤔

I tried shooting video once before and it was SO frustrating....I don't know if I can do it. 😞

I'm making some videos now, but I feel like my technical understanding is holding me back + they're not truly representative of me 🙈

...You know why?

Once I started shooting video...I friggin' loved it.

I  hear you.

and to that I say:

 And I truly believe that no media can connect with the human spirit in the same way that a jaw-dropping video can. So let's start weaving your story, together.

It's me, Eva! Author, educator, photographer, and a lady with waaaay too many houseplants. My love affair with video started with teenage me fan girl-ing over Amelie on my dell computer in my bedroom, saw me through getting my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Video Production, and is still with me as I create videos for my own brand + for clients.

My work has been featured from Saveur to Sunset Magazine to the New York Times, and I'm honored to have worked with clients like All-Clad, KitchenAid, Anthropologie, West Elm, Crate & Barrel, and so many more.

QUESTION:

If I want to know how to make "normal" horizontal videos too, does this apply?

Heck yes, it does! Everything we're going over in the course, from camera settings to editing techniques to storytelling tools, also applies to horizontal videos. The caveat here is that vertical video is *not* what most video equipment + editing software is geared towards, so in the course you'll learn all about the equipment + technical tools you can use to make gorgeous videos vertically. But if you want to do it the old school horizontal way, you can just put to use everything covered in the course, but without the vertical work-arounds 👍

You know the creative field is shifting to video, but when you try to learn it on your own you’re all like 🙈🤯😖

If you're thinking "I tried making videos and it was actually really frustrating for me”— I totally get it.

Once you bridge that gap and understand how to create videos, what all those technical video settings mean, how to use simple stylistic techniques to enhance your story, and the art of polishing that story through editing, that frustration will turn into a "HECK yeah!" at the deep well of opportunities that this new skillset brings to your table 🙌

Bonus #3

Video Shot List Template

This Shot List Template can be typed directly into, so you can have a clear vision of what you're going to shoot, how many shots will be in your video, and you'll be able to calculate + make sure that they work with your video's duration time constraints.

HER review

Let's do this thing!

If I'm interested in shooting horizontal videos too, will the material in the course still apply?

Nope! This is brand new content. Whereas the bundle's video course focused on flat lay + stop motion videos, this course is all-encompassing and dives into a huge variety of different video styles, angles, storytelling techniques, gear, and durations. This course is focused on the newest capabilities in the video realm, and dives deep into every *single* aspect of video creation, from idea to storytelling to shooting to editing. And with the growing demand for vertical videos, this course covers all the transitionary equipment + tech you need to use to shoot + edit vertically. There is about 5 minutes of overlap when I'm talking about frame rates, but out of the over 12 hours of tutorials, that's not too bad ;) Plus it's always good to have a little refresher about the fundamentals!

Heck yes, it will! Everything we're going over in the course, from camera settings to editing techniques to storytelling tools, also applies to horizontal videos. The caveat here is that vertical video is *not* what most video equipment + editing software is geared towards, so in the course you'll learn all about the equipment + technical tools you can use to make gorgeous videos vertically. But if you want to do it the old school horizontal way, you can just put to use everything covered in the course, but without the vertical work-arounds 👍

How long do I have access to the course?

There is no expiration date for your access—it's for life, my friend! When you join, you won't be beholden to a deadline. And you won't be asked to pay some additional fee to extend access. I want you to be able to reference the program as many times as you want, whenever you want. Whether that's months, seasons, or years from now, you can count on this this course to be there for you!

I took the flat lay video + stop motion course in your Photography + Styling + Branding Course Bundle, is this the same?

What equipment do I need?

You will definitely need a camera that allows you to shoot video. As for the rest of the gear discussed in the course, it's optional depending on the style of video you want to create (which we'll dive deep into in the course, especially in Module 2 which is all about video equipment). I'm a firm believer that you don't need the newest + shiniest equipment to create a beautiful video—instead, you need to understand what you're doing on a technical + artistic level, and that's what the course will help you do. If you are interested in learning to edit in Adobe Rush, Adobe Premiere, or DaVinci Resolve, you will need to download one or all of those applications. Adobe Rush desktop + Adobe Premiere are paid, but DaVinci Resolve is free to download.

When are the Bonus Q&A's happening?

Can I start with learning to shoot video on my Smart Phone first, and then upgrade to a camera later on?

Yes you can! Module 7 of the course is all about creating beautiful videos with your smart phone, and is a great way to start getting your toes wet with manual video shooting settings before moving on to a more advanced camera body.

The Founding Member Bonus Q&A's are happening at 10 am Pacific Time / 6 pm London time on August 16th, September 6th, and September 27th.

The Early Bird Bonus Q&A with the smaller more intimate group is happening at 10 am Pacific Time / 6 pm London time on September 29th.

“Her talent, generosity, and teaching skills allow Eva to be an amazing mentor.”

I’ve known Eva and her gorgeous work for years now and was lucky enough to learn from her through course and workshop! Not only is Eva an amazing food photographer (one of the best if you ask me ;)) but she truly is a wonderfull and caring human being! Her talent, her generosity and teaching skills allow Eva to be an amazing mentor. I’ve not yet had the chance to learn video from Eva yet, but I know whatever she does is gold and I would trust any course she puts out there for us to learn!

When you join, you won't be beholden to an arbitrary cut-off date. And you won't be asked to pay some additional fee to extend access.

You want to legitimately understand how video settings work + all the nerdy storytelling + editing techniques at your disposal

You’re happy dancing around in front of the camera and aren’t interested in visual storytelling

You want to learn about all aspects of video so you can use them to craft your *own* signature style

You just want a surface-level course and don't want a deeper understanding of the tech behind video

You want a "copy & paste" program that focuses more on the instructor's style than your own

Not only are the courses super approachable and inspiring, Eva is one of the most encouraging and supportive teachers I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

"Taking one of Eva's courses was a major turning point in building my own successful career as an artist. She explained technicalities in an approachable way and then how to apply those elements in a real life way to my work. Afterwards I was able to not only consistently produce quality images, but use that knowledge to shape my own personal style. I wasn't a beginner by any means coming into her course, but her teaching style made things 'click' in a way they never had previously.

"I took Eva’s Photography + Styling + Branding Course in September 2020 because I was mesmerized by her photography and wanted to learn her craft from her. That decision was a game changer for me! 

The course took me deep into the basics first, getting more advanced as I progressed. Right from understanding your camera and its settings, to learning about light and how to work with it to create the mood you want to portray, to styling with a purpose, the meaningful use of props, to advanced storytelling and finally, to editing your images to bring them to life, the course is super comprehensive and broken down into

You have lifetime access to the course, so I never felt rushed to complete it. Eva is by far the best teacher you can have! She is extremely kind, approachable, intuitive and knowledgeable, and selflessly imparts that knowledge to you. She patiently addressed all of our queries on the photo course's monthly zoom calls. You can see how my work has evolved, thanks to Eva! I would highly recommend her as a teacher."

"She does not keep any secrets to herself. She shares all her knowledge with you, and she will guide and advise you throughout your learning process"

"Eva's teaching system is very complete, not only for all the knowledge she shares throughout unique and amazing videos, but also for all the extra materials and resources she offers. One of the best additions she provides is the live zoom calls to ask questions. Because she has extensive technical, creative, and business knowledge, you can ask any question you have and I assure you that Eva will answer it. She does not keep any secrets to herself. She shares all her knowledge with you, and she will guide and advise you throughout your learning process."

"Often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us"

Ready? let's take a leap!

I had a very long and winding road to the creative life, which included working at NBCUniversal (the highlight of which was when Jason Bateman ate a cake I baked (!) ), picking up my first camera (dark room-style) 18 years ago, and shooting for clients + teaching students for over a decade.

Nope, I am not a dinosaur—but I do have a *LOT* of experience when it comes to video, and I want to shave valuable time off your learning curve. Let's give your voice the platform it deserves. This is YOUR time to shine. I can't wait to see you inside.
