Well hey, I'm Ilona Jade!


When I was starting out, I had to dig through loads of information to learn something applicable I could use to get the photos I wanted. It was so overwhelming, to try to figure out why I wasn't getting the images I was envisioning, and why sometimes they were blurry, and other times they looked okay. There were times my photos would be way too bright or way too dark and I had no idea what I was doing wrong. Many times my photos did not look as dreamy as the photographers I was looking up to. I craved to take the beautiful images I was envisioning, but I couldn't easily find answers to how to do that.

I had to figure out each problem as it came up. Years later I am shocked how I was able to get clients without being able to guarantee the amazing photos. I have learned SO much over the last 10+ years, like what were the essentials to getting amazing photos and what was just noise that didn't matter as much. I honestly wish I had a resource like this when I was starting out to save me years of painful learning experiences and the frustration of trying to figure out what I needed to learn. I am so excited to walk with the next wave of photographers as they learn the essentials of photography!
