Auto to Amazing is unique for 5 reasons.

Auto to Amazing is unique because has been created with the help of 118 professional photographers who have shared their best photography tips on the podcast. That info has also gone into creating the Conquer your Camera field guide which you can follow step by step on location if you get stuck. Learning photography can feel overwhelming at times so I made sure to teach with patient and support because everyone learns differently and I want to personally make sure you succeed!

I am so invested in you learning how to shoot manual to finally take control of your camera, that if you complete the course and don't learn how to shoot manual in 30 Days I will give you DOUBLE your money back.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. It is a completely self-paced online course. I understand how busy life can be especially with work and kids to take care of.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase. If you complete the course and do not learn how to shoot in manual in 30 days and I will give you double your money back. You have nothing to lose.
Why pay for this course when so much can be found online for free?
Did you know more than 300 hours of video is uploaded to youtube every minute? While you can find a lot of helpful tips on there, it would take you months to find it all. It took me 10 years of shooting and interviewing over 100 professional photographers to compile this course for those who want to learn the step by step process of taking better photos by this weekend, not next year.
Will this course still work for me if I don't have a professional camera?
Absolutely! In fact, for all of my on-location lessons, I use a 5-year-old beginner level camera that can be purchased used for under $200 and I go head to head with a $2000 camera to prove that a more expensive camera does not mean it will take better photos.
When does the course Start?
Enrollment is open from July 24th to July 31st. The course will start on August 1st and end 30 days later.

"[Raymond has] helped me have the confidence to finally after 2 years go manual. There’s no going back now and I couldn't be more excited!"


“Raymond is relatable and breaks things down in an understandable way that takes the pressure off learning. This is so helpful for a beginner like me!”

- Kaley

“This is such a great resource for anyone trying to get into photography or are already a photographer! So many topics are discussed [with clarity]. Many of which I have tried to wrap my head around before”

- Danny

No toddler has ever learned to walk by simply reading a book. It’s unrealistic to think you will be a professional photographer immediately after you complete this course. That’s why you will be invited to an exclusive students only facebook group to share your photos with other beginners, get specific feedback, join in group photo challenges, and learn with a community of others.

This course is not open for enrollment.
