If there was an easy way to capture creative photos that make people gasp and say “Wow! How’d you take that?”… would you be interested?

What if all you needed was a selection of simple and creative photography projects? Ones that you could do from the comfort of your home?

And the photos you captured received hundreds of likes on Facebook and Instagram. And reached the front pages of websites like Flickr, 500px, and Reddit…?

My name is Josh Dunlop, and here’s something few people know… You can master creative photography, 10x better than you can imagine now… all you need is a simple guide and a few hours of your time.

Pictures so jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring, others may accuse you of stealing them from the internet.

Here, I’m going to prove it to you.

Take a look at this…

I took this photo in my kitchen using nothing more than a $100 remote flash, coloured milk, and a water dropper. From start to finish it only took two hours.

When you’re starting out with creative photography, the average project seems like more trouble than it’s worth.

That’s because it’s usually shot in a big studio, with expensive gear. There’s never been an easy way for the average photographer to get started.

But the truth is… with some basic gear, and a little know-how, it can all be so simple…

Hi, I’m Joshua Dunlop, Founder of ExpertPhotography


A couple of years ago, I got stuck in a creative rut. I couldn’t come up with any new and original ideas. My photography started to stink.

Creativity isn’t something you can force.

So I started to experiment. I left my main area of expertise (landscapes) in search of new niches that could reignite my passion.

What I found surprised me. I fell in love with a new (to me) form of photography: creative and trick photography. Because:

  1. You can do it from the comfort of your home.
    I’m a busy person. So any form of photography that I can do in my kitchen is a big plus for me.
  2. It’s so impressive, it’s almost cheating.
    I almost feel bad, but the reactions I get for my creative photography has been overwhelming.
  3. It fuels creativity and inspiration.
    This is what got me out of my rut. I was flooded with so many new ideas and techniques to try… it’s hard to stay stuck for long.

That’s why I’ve been spending months working on this creative course:

Introducing: “Wow Factor Photography”

(For illustration purposes only; this is an online course with video downloads)

“Wow Factor Photography” is a 30-day photography project video course, on the art of photo creativity.

It shows you how to capture world-class images in the comfort of your home.

We don’t fuss about the gear you have or even recommend you buy more of it. The “secret” to exceptional photography is how you use it.

Which is why throughout this course, you’ll see me shooting with the Canon EOS Rebel T6 (AKA the 1300D), the cheapest DSLR I could find.

Some of the skills you’re going to gain include:

  • The exact settings I use to take 30 different creative photos (and the reason behind my decisions)
  • Behind-the-scenes training on how every scene is setup
  • Why we use manual focus for the majority of our shots, for the most reliable results
  • The do’s and don’ts of light and colour
  • And much, much more…

To capture pictures like this…

Filmed in a family home, we show you the kinds of photos that can be captured without even having to leave the house.

Even if you struggled in school… or aren’t the greatest at grasping new skills… you’re going to be shocked by how easy it feels to absorb this information.

Here, see for yourself with the free sample below:

30 Printable Cheat Sheets for Creative Photography (Value = $99)

Wow Factor Photography has over 10,000 happy students from the past years.

But we wanted to make the process of capturing these photos even easier…

So our editorial and design team worked together to create recipe cards for each image.

The process is simple:

  • Pick a project and watch the video
  • Print or download the cheat sheet
  • Follow the simple steps

With our cheat sheets, you don’t have to remember anything… they make creative photography easy.

Forget About Complicated Gear and Software

One of the most common misconceptions about creative photography is the need for a bunch of fancy gear.

The photos I used to take with $1,000 worth of lighting, are nowhere near as good as the ones I take now with my $100 one-flash setup.

Focus your time on experimentation, not setting up unnecessary studio equipment.

And the same goes for Photoshop. It has so many built-in tools and filters, there’s no need to do things the old fashioned way anymore.

If you can follow simple instructions to replicate a basic setup, capturing great results is as easy as clicking a button.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the photos below:

On the left is the setup. It took about 20-30 minutes to complete, using a $350 camera and everyday household items.

On the right is the finished photo, which only took a couple of minutes to compose, focus, and shoot.

Simple At-Home Setups Produce The Best Results

Picture this.

You’re at home with your camera in your hand, set up and ready to go.

You place your camera on your tripod without a single worry about lighting, exposure, or focus… Everything falls into place.

After a small amount of setup and experimentation, you’re ready to shoot.

You take photos without a second thought.

Less than a minute later, you’ve captured a photo so creative and exciting, you won’t stop shooting until all of your batteries are dead.

15 minutes later you’re playing with different compositions, lighting, and colours to make your photos more striking.

When you’re done, you have a selection of the most impressive… awe-inspiring… and interesting photographs you’ve ever taken.

Sound far-fetched? That’s what I thought too.

Through my years of experimentation, I’ve developed dozens of shortcuts for creative photography. Simple setups, with basic gear, that produce stunning results.

Creative photography comes naturally to me, and I’m confident I don’t have to rely on expensive studio setups or heavy Photoshop processing.

The Secret Behind Successful Creative & Trick Photography…

For creativity to start to flow, you have to have a concept: A good idea of what you want to capture.

Because to quote Ansel Adams “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.”

But the problem is, the ‘concept’ is the most difficult part of any photo. How do you come up with new ideas that excite your photography?

Well, you can…

  • Force yourself to come up with new ideas (very frustrating)
  • Browse through Flickr and 500px in the search of inspiration (very time-consuming)
  • Or follow a specially designed photography project that will fuel your creativity and inspiration (simple!)…

The secret to creative photography is to go through a selection of tried-and-tested projects and use your own style and taste to make them uniquely yours…

Together with my team of videographers, designers, photographers, and editors, we’ve managed to simplify this complex form of photography.

Over 1,000 work hours later… the results speak for themselves.

Our courses always get a roaring reception from delighted students. But often, photos can say more than a thousand words… So here are some photos from previous students…

I think this an excellent course, Josh is clear, well-paced and interesting. The ideas and day projects are unique, which is why I bought it. I have Photoshop experience, so I was able to jump around in the lessons, but I don’t think much experience is needed to achieve great results. It has been a lot of fun to do something different!

Stacy Anne McCormack
Kate Crawford

I found the course very well laid out and easy to get to exactly the parts that were of interest to me. The instructions were easy to follow and I was able to get some great results on my first attempt at each style I have tried so far. I am looking forward to trying more of the modules soon.

I enjoyed the WOW Factor Photography Courses because I always am looking for new things to shoot to capture my interest. I am glad I can refer back to the classes because taking in all the information at once can be a little overwhelming. I am happy to have purchased the program so I can refer back time and time again.

I have recently added the macro course to my learning and invested in an off-camera flash unit. So now I have revisited the WOW course to try some of the projects that required a flash. Really liking my results! What I like about the course is that Josh gives you the ideas and how to achieve them, but then you can expand on those ideas.

I bought the wow pack from Josh as I needed some inspiration, and, even though I’m a fairly experienced tog, I still learnt a thing or two. I was having fun with elasticity last night, so I’ll be uploading a couple of bits later. 🙂 Regards.

New Bonus Added: How to Create a Photography Following (Value = $149)

The creative photography you’ll capture with this course will be so stunning… you’ll feel a strong urge to share it online.

It’s not easy if you don’t know what you’re doing, but that’s something one of our most talented writers, Taya, has been able to achieve.

We’ve managed to convince her to write an ebook to share her process of growing over 200,000+ followers online.

Bonus #1: PSD for Free (Value = $149)

If you’re new to Photoshop, then it can seem like a daunting experience. It has a bad reputation.

You used to have to do everything manually in Photoshop, but now there’s a ton of built-in filters and tools.

With our expert training, we walk you through every single step to make it easy to understand and use.

But we wanted to make it even easier. So we’re also including the .PSD files for the Photoshop projects.

That way you can experiment with my photos, and get a feel for how easily Photoshop works.
