Interior Designers - Have you ever found yourself:
- Hiring any photographer you can afford rather than invest in the very best interior design photographer you can?
- Taking photos yourself only to get bogged down in the editing process?
- Settling for sub-par photos to round out your website or social media feed and hoping your audience cuts you some slack?
- Feeling envious of your peers or other Influencers who have a beautifully curated Instagram feed that shows off their work and tells a story?
- Overwhelmed even thinking about photographing your work...
No matter where you are in your design career - there is an easier, faster, and cheaper way to leverage good photography beyond your formal portfolio.
Hi, I’m Linda Holt,
I'm an Interior Designer and Owner of Linda Holt Creative. But, before becoming an interior designer, I was a professional photographer.
Yet, I remember the feeling of disappointment...
In 2014 I bought my first iPhone. Based on the ads showing professional-grade camera-work, I planned to use it for my social media and design photos, but the results were not what I expected.
Honestly, they were terrible.
I was actually ashamed to share them.
My photography background supplied me with the knowledge to properly compose a photo and adjust the lighting in the room for optimal effect.
But no matter how hard I tried, my iPhone photos were dark, lackluster, and unimpressive.
I'd stand in a room that I had just finished designing...with a happy, satisfied customer at my side...and photos on my phone that simply didn't reflect it.
"I'm a highly experienced professional photographer!" I thought, "No way are these embarrassing photos my fault!"
I blamed my iPhone and figured it must be too complicated to get the high-quality photos I had seen others capture with their phones.
But, I wasn't ready to give up. I wanted to leverage my new phone as much as I could! And, I knew that if I mastered taking amazing photos with my phone, everything would change for my design business.
After a year of watching YouTube tutorials, taking iPhone classes, and experimenting with my phone...I saw a massive improvement.
I started sharing what I’d learned with my fellow interior designers. Everyone wanted to know my secrets of how to improve their photos.
I was able to distill my year-long journey into just enough very specific advice tailored for the needs of my designer friends.
I watched as their photos transformed after showing them small tips and tricks and explaining how the pros do it.
Soon they were improving their photos and posting beautiful images...with just their Smartphones.
They were overjoyed as they started to receive compliments on their photos.
“Wow! I have only completed 2 modules and I am so pumped! Thank you for offering this class. I have been a “wanna be” photographer for so long and I’ve been spending money on professional shoots, but no longer. They never quite capture what I want to capture.”
Good photography maximizes your credibility and status as a designer.
Whether you are an emerging designer without the budget to hire a pro, or you already work with top-notch interior design photographers regularly...The ability to shoot your own photos, taken and edited right on your phone, is a game-changer.
You'll be able to capture behind-the-scenes shots that audiences love, detailed shots to highlight products you affiliate for, or vignettes that you share with a story on social media.
If you're a designer, you absolutely must be able to photograph your work - even if you bring in the pro photographer for your portfolio shots!

Smartphone Photography for Interior Designers
"I enrolled in Linda’s class this past Spring and my photos have improved 1000%. What I enjoyed about Linda’s presentation is the way she speaks in “real” language (not cameraspeak) and how patient she is with me. Linda covers everything from the very basic: Is your camera lens clean? To composition and lighting. I recommend Linda Holt’s Photo Program with great enthusiasm. She is brilliant."

What quality of photos will you be able to take during your next design job?
Will you walk away with more ho-hum photos on your not-very-impressive social media feeds?
Will you continue to feel the need to use the hashtag #crappycellphonephoto to justify your posting?
Or will you go home with a smile on your face, not only because you know your finished design is fabulous and your client is thrilled, but also because you have equally impressive photos on your smartphone that you were able to shoot in the 3 minutes after the last pillow was fluffed?

Q. My photos look TERRIBLE! They are so dark and I just want to cry when I look at them. Yet, the room design was beautiful. Can I really fix this with just my phone?
Q. I have a friend that is a professional photographer and I’m thinking of hiring her to come in and take photographs after a project completes. She has all the fancy equipment and a degree in photography. I really want to support her business, too. Wouldn’t that be better than doing it myself?
Q. Can’t I learn all of this just by googling my photo problems and watching a couple of YouTube tutorials?
Q. I don’t think I have time in my schedule to take this course!
