ATTENTION: Smartphone macro photography enthusiasts, hobbyists, and beginners:
The journey from mediocre to awesome.
I initially became interested in photography when I purchased my first digital camera several years ago. I originally bought it to take photos when I was out with friends at at critical life changing events for a 20-something year old - birthdays and celebrations at the bars! While I had a lot of fun with it, I was tired of disposable film cameras with their high cost of processing film. And while digital point and shoot cameras were still pricey, I decided to pull the trigger so I could eliminate film processing costs and send photos to friends without scanning them first.
Not long after that I found myself more and more fascinated with photography. My camera's primary use went from weekends at the bars with my buddies and moved to taking more artistic shots.
And then, I started to migrate into macro photography. I was always fascinated when I saw photos of subjects closer than we normally see them, like insects and flowers.
But my progress at taking macro shots was horrible. I was plagued with bad lighting, unwanted motion blur, odd angles, and every other headache. And this was even AFTER reading about macro photography. Does this headache sound familiar to you?
It's not unusual to experience these headaches when getting into macro and close-up photography, so you're not alone. Photography can be a very tricky skill, and the difficulty is multiplied the closer you get to your subject. Plus, most photography books are very general and teach lots of theory, but don't give very clear directions. To say the least, macro is not easy to get good at.
The beach has lots of close-up opportunities.
In photography as in life, perspective is everything
Well, it wasn't easy. But things are changing.
I've created a guide that will show you the proven steps, advanced techniques, and must know tricks to taking stunning macro and close-up shots, time and time again and with ease.
This course is the product of my pain. After having gone through so much to finally take decent macro shots, I realized I'd like to help others avoid the frustration that I endured.
Before I made this, I've looked at many macro and close-up photography products out there and they're either very general, very complicated, or just plain unhelpful.
These eBooks were created to fill the gap of what you really need.
The stress of "it seemed easy".
My experiences with macro photography at the beginning were bad. I thought all I had to do was push the button and I'm done. But that's not the case. When you get in close, either with a close-up or macro shot, I found out that a lot of things change, so it's NOT like taking other shots. Lighting, composition, depth of field, and everything else operate somewhat differently.
So I took a lot of bad shots. But the problem was much worse than just bad shots.
I don't know about you, but when I'm trying to get good at a skill, I can easily spend hours at a time focusing. But when things are NOT going my way, I get STRESSED.
And stress leads to pain. Pain in the form of tense shoulders and upper back pain. So taking bad macro shots were not doing me any favors. And the more I pressured myself, the worst I felt from the failures.
How I felt most shoots when nothing went right.
Bad shots like these stressed me because I initially didn't realize that macro techniques ARE different.
Learn faster from direct instruction.
These eBooks are specifically designed to provide BOTH depth of understanding on macro and close-up photography with smartphones (i.e. lots to read through), AND to provide many quick tricks to instantly improve your shots.
The ability to instantly improve, come from two basic components of my eBooks:
- 6 Secrets for Instantly Better Shots - I've boiled down the 6 small tricks that will instantly improve your shots! Whether you implement just one or multiple in a shot is up to you. But each trick is clearly spelled out on ONE PAGE ONLY. So you don't need to read several chapters. Just read one page now, and you will get some better shots. That simple.
- 10-Step Process - I have broken down how you need to approach ALL macro and close-up shots into 10 simple steps. If all you do is glance over this section and follow these steps, you're on your way to consistently improved shots. Those steps may take you less then 10 minutes to read!
Get repeatable results.
Another part of my secret to great macro and close-up photos is dead simple. When I first realized how simple it was, I asked myself why everyone wasn't doing this. Then we could all have amazing pictures and stories to share. And that secret is:
Repeat the same successful process every time.
Dead simple, right? It is. So why isn't everyone doing this?
I struggled with this question for some time. I knew that everyone gets some good shots here and there, so why not follow the same process that worked for those shots they took?
Then two things dawned on me.
First, most photography enthusiasts probably don't take careful note as to HOW they take their shots. SO when one was successful they didn't realize why, but were just happy that it was good.
And second, most people don't have an analytical background. I have a background in the financial sector in a role that deals with strict processes. And in my environment, when things go wrong, people lose money and people get fired. So I'm trained to be thorough.
By using these skills, I was able to develop a comprehensive 10-Step system to ensure that I take excellent shots in a very high frequency.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not at 100%. No one is. If anyone tells you they are, they lie. And the reality is you likely won't get to 100% ever. But if only 1.25% of your shots are great, wouldn't bumping up to 10%, 15%, 25%, or even 50% and over be awesome? I think so.
Tomorrow is a new day. Whether you see yourself at the park trying close-up shots of some cool sea shells, or at the park with that special someone marveling at some ladybugs, you'll be taking some awesome macro photographs!
Your shots will be clean, sharp, and inspiring.
They could elicit wonder and amazement from your followers.
And they will be your pride and joy.

Frequently Asked Questions
"You don't take a photography, you make it."- Ansel Adams
"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."- Karl Lagerfeld
Do I need any special software on my smartphone to take great photos?
The simple answer is no. All you need is the basic camera app that your phone came with and you can do most, if not all, of the shots you will read about.
Of course, there are many free and paid for apps that you can get for your iOS, Android, and BB OS phones that will allow you take more control and do more editing. You don’t need them, but I recommend you try at least some of the free ones out there are there are some nice effects you can get.
In most cases, I have not done any processing to the photos. However, there are a few shots where I did some processing on the phone. However, there are only a few of those.
I did not do any processing in software outside of the phone (i.e. no Photoshop, LightRoom, MS Paint, etc.). Everything was on the phone.
How much time will I need to get better?
That is solely to you. But I am sure that even by using any of the 6 Secrets to Better Shots, you will instantly get better results.
Of course, as you work your way through the entire manual including my 10-Step Process and my 13 Lessons, you will be taking amazing shots!
Is this program suited for someone with no knowledge of close-up and macro ability?
Absolutely yes. I made these eBooks for people with no to moderate knowledge in macro and closeup photography. You need no previous experience outside of generally knowing how to use your smartphone camera.
Is this program suited for advanced smart phone photographers?
If you’re an advanced smartphone photographer but don’t do much close-up and/or macro shots, then you will learn from these eBooks.
However, if you are a pro at this stuff and take macro shots with your smart phone all then time, then you would be hard-pressed to justify buying this. Unless you are looking for more reference material, I’d suggest you stick with what you know.

As my guarantee states, if you don’t get any better after you have gone through my program, you can simply request a refund within 60 days of your purchase and we will refund you with no hassles! (We may ask why you didn’t like it, but that’s just so I can improve the book for version 2).
