Meet Taya Iv, Your Self-Portrait Photography Coach

Taya discovered her love for photography at the age of 12, when she stumbled upon an art website called DeviantArt. There, she joined a community of portrait photographers who inspired her to take photos of other people and herself. Her very first self-portrait was taken with a 2-megapixel camera on her phone.

Since then, her work has been featured on book covers and in photography magazines. She has written over 400 articles about photography, edited several books on photography and cinematography, and become the ambassador for 500px, the world's largest online photography community. All of this was achieved with minimal camera equipment in seemingly insignificant circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still not sure? Find answers to your questions here...

There are 6 modules in total, with at least 5 videos in each. Each module focuses on a specific area of indoor self-portrait photography on a budget, like making the most of the items in your home or working on your self-confidence.

All kinds of cameras and equipment are welcome. The instructor has been using the same equipment (Canon 5D Mark II with a 50mm f/1.8 lens) for years. This course is about learning how to make the most of what you already own. However, you'll significantly benefit from using a wireless remote and a tripod.

Ideally, you should have a general idea of camera settings like aperture, ISO, and shutter speed so that you can easily follow along as you watch the videos. These settings will be covered briefly in the course, but the expectation is that you know how to use your camera's basic settings. You don't need to have any knowledge of self-portrait photography to make the most of this course.

All of the lessons are pre-recorded, but you can send direct messages to the instructor if you need any guidance.

Yes. You can share your photos with others, ask for feedback, and interact with other members in our online community.

Payment for the course is required before you can join and begin the lessons.

You will have access to one new lesson every 24 hours. Once a lesson is available to you, you'll have lifetime access to it. Given this system, you'll benefit the most from watching one video every day (or as often as you can) and completing a challenge afterwards. This way, you'll be able to practice regularly and improve your skills.

Lessons typically range from 2-6 minutes and focus on topics like artificial light, using everyday objects creatively, feeling confident in front of the camera, and much more. All the lessons have been edited carefully to give you the best possible experience as a student. You won't just have to look at the instructor as she tells you how to take beautiful photos of yourself. You'll see how she takes those photos and be provided with photo examples. Most of the lessons end with a challenge that's meant to help you develop your style and build confidence as a self-portrait photographer.

Yes, you will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the course

Lessons will play on any device capable of playing videos. This includes smartphones, tablets, PCs, and Macs.

Yes, you can watch each lesson as many times are you like. The lessons are short and concise. If you need to review the information, it will not take much time.

This course is available anywhere you have an internet connection. The teaching and challenges are relevant internationally.

Yes, subtitles are available if you need them.

Yes. If you're curious about this genre, you're bound to take amazing photographs of yourself. All you need is a little extra knowledge and inspiration, which this course will provide you with.

That’s completely fine. Self-portrait photography is about more than just photographing your face. Many people in this genre like to photograph themselves in beautiful locations outdoors or indoors without showing their faces at all. This course briefly focuses on that, but you can still use most of the principles shared in the lessons to take meaningful photos of yourself without showing your face.

Yes. All of the lessons focus on photographing yourself indoors exclusively. This is meant to help you make the most of your surroundings, no matter where you are. You don't need to live in an extraordinary home to take stunning photos.
