Hi there, I’m Pete!

I’ve been a professional photographer for years and run a successful portrait business and love shooting landscapes in my spare time. I’ve even had some of my work featured on the cover of national magazines.

I won’t stop until you get the results you want, period.

That’s why I’ve spent the last 4 years learning, teaching, and creating step-by-step classes that teach the secrets of photography.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you love shooting photos of people, then you will definitely benefit from these blueprints. It’s more than just for posed “pro” looking shots. The techniques and fundamentals that go into building these blueprints can be used for everything from posed family portraits to candid vacation shots.

If you usually just go out and shoot landscapes, then this probably isn’t a good fit for you (but I am planning a similar set of landscape blueprints!)

My goal is always to help you and guide you towards improving your photography skills and (most importantly) having fun with your camera. So if you’re not satisfied with the Blueprints, then just email me within 30 days and I’ll be happy to give you a refund.

But, if there’s something specific you think it missing, just let me know and maybe I can add it. That’s the best part of being an introductory student.

Yes, these images are created using an interchangeable lens camera (DSLR or Mirrorless is cool) but even if all you have is a smartphone, you can just download an app that lets you control the settings manually and get a lot out of the these.

You’ll get immediate access. 🎉

And once you’re in, you’ll have lifetime access to this course (plus all future updates to it), so you can go through it as many times as you’d like.

You’ll get an email giving you immediate access to the portrait blueprints. The most important ones are already complete and I’ll be adding, updating, and improving the entire set in the coming weeks. I’ll be asking for your feedback too so I know exactly what you need help with and how to help.

As an introductory student, you’ll have the opportunity for some 1-on-1 conversations to help me make the blueprints better (I usually charge a lot more for 1-on-1 instruction too!)
