Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?

You will have access for the lifetime of the course – which will be at least 3 years from the time that you enroll.

What if I don't have a camera yet?

Perfect! If you don’t have a camera yet, Christina will let you know what are the most important settings to look for when picking out a camera for photographing food.

What if I hate my current camera or lens?

Perfect! If you hate your current camera or lens, Christina might show you some settings on your camera to make you love it again. If you really just want a new camera or lens, Christina will let you know what are the most important settings to look for when picking out a camera and/or lens for photographing food.

Many students have taken Christina’s courses in the past thinking their camera was broken and it just turned out that one setting was set to something that made it very difficult to take pictures. The goal here is to teach you how to use what you have. Not to up-sell you into spending more money. Honestly there are awesome cameras that are $400. So, unless your camera is 15 years old, chances are, Christina can make your camera work for you.

What kind of support do I really have?

This is the first time Christina is offering this: If you buy the course during the enrollment period, you will be given dates that Christina will do a weekly program with you via Zoom for four weeks to help you get through the program. Each week you will cover one module’s content with a live Q & A. If you buy the program after enrollment, you will be allowed to join the next round of live zoom calls when she offers them, at no additional cost to you. 

I still have questions. How do I get them answered?
