"Been shooting my wife (mainly) using my Canon EOS 3D DSLR for years. Occasionally, I'll throw something up on SM and next thing you know all my friends are asking for photos. Well, now I know the exact steps to start monetizing this little hobby. Been reaching out to Sean with questions through IG and he gets back to me in a matter of hours. I feel like Sean's invested in my desire to monetize my hobby which is the main reason you should definitely take this course. I especially like the modules about Shooting and Proofs, packed with tips that didn't even cross my mind. Can't wait to get past the initial implementation of Sean's plan"
