The first time I picked up a camera I click-click-clicked away and hoped for a decent shot. And every now and then (after lots of deleting) I’d strike gold! But I didn’t want an amazing shot to be the result of a fluke. I knew there had to be a better way! And when I launched my blog GEMMA PEANUT GALLERY, I simply couldn’t afford to hire a photographer every time I wanted unique and compelling images to beef up my blog posts. So I took the plunge and threw myself heart-first into learning photography and quickly realised that mastering manual mode was the key to seeing the world through a completely different creative lens. And thus, a hard core love affair with photography was born!
The freedom and opportunities that have since opened up to me are immeasurable. To be able to earn a living doing what I love was something I didn’t think possible. And I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed some of the most captivating personalities in the world including Margot Robbie, Teresa Palmer, Phoebe Tonkin, Delta Goodrem, Mimi Elashiry, Ali Simpson, Jules Sebastian, Renee Bargh, Samantha Jade, Rachael Taylor, Melissa Ambrosini, Ashley Hart, Sjana Earp, Demi Harman, Dena Kaplan, Charlotte Best, Anna Heinrich, Eleanor Pendleton, Tash Sefton + Elle Ferguson.
My techniques could be considered a little unconventional by some. But these very techniques have led me down the path of a Pro-Photographer in an industry I love, working with likeminded creatives and delivering projects I'm bonkers passionate about.
Today, I’ve created the course I wish was available to me right at the start of my photography journey. I wasted hundreds of hours in the abyss of YouTube tutorials, which left me frustrated and overloaded with information I didn’t know how to put into practice. All I wanted was someone to connect the dots for me, spare me the in depth technical jargon and cut straight to the tools that would help me take control of my camera once and for all.
SO, I’VE DONE THE HARD WORK FOR YOU AND CREATED A COURSE THAT DOES EXACTLY THAT!
A step by step method of photography, that creates a rock solid platform of skills you can take flight from. I’ve always been a practical and visual learner and my promise to you is that this course embodies these characteristics.
SO HANDS UP IF YOU’RE READY to join PHOTOGRAPHY 101 with me, Gemma Peanut!
Because simply stated, you have ZERO control of your camera when shooting in automatic mode. You are at the mercy of your camera deciding what the image should look like. (And often the camera gets it wrong!)
Do you really want to take hundreds of photos in the hope that one might hit the mark? It’s time to take the power back, unleash your inner artist and create the photos YOU imagined by showing your camera who’s boss!

I’m not going to squeeze pennies out of you along the way like so many other courses do. (Who else hates upselling?!)
I want to train you to become a crafty opportunistic photographer working with the absolute minimum to create maximum results. Some of my best shoots were just me, my camera and the subject. No assistants, no fancy lighting, just us and the world!
You don’t need to invest in anything other than the DSLR camera you own (or a borrowed one).
