Are you in the market for a DSLR (a.k.a. A Big Girl Camera)? If so, you've come to the right place. This FREE online course will help you understand what features are most important when choosing an entry level DSLR and which features can be ignored. In a quick 20-minute video, I'll explain in simple, easy to understand terms what you need to know to make a buying decision. In addition, I've included 2 downloadable resources that you can print and use when shopping. The first is a resource guide with some of my favorite things. The second, a comparison chart will walk you through the most important features of 4 different cameras at difference price points to help you make an informed decision.
Hi, I'm Andrea. The Big Girl behind The Big Girl School. Since 2011, I've been teaching (mostly!) women that all those buttons don't have to be scary!
My love of photography started WAY before my pictures were any good. I've always been the scrapbook maker, the historian, and the slide show builder. My love of making beautiful images has grown over time. What started as a desire to get better pictures of my girls turned into a side-hustle. That side hustle has grown and evolved over the years to a full blown business that has taken me on many great adventures capturing everything from Fortune 500 CEO's to country music stars to up and coming entrepreneurs.
My path to teaching rose out the fact that so many people came to me with questions that I started an in-person workshop in my basement as a way to raise money for charity. Over time, the demand for these classes has grown, but my basement has not! And that's how the Big Girl School was born.
As a former Microsoftie, I absolutely love breaking down what seems like technical and complex words into something very easy to understand and practice. I get goose bumps when my students high five and declare they will never use "Auto" again. I live for that breakthrough moment when they can see with their own eyes the difference that being in control of your camera makes.
I hope you'll join me and learn to use your Big Girl Camera!!
