THERE ARE TWO KITS available. One, THE TEACHER KIT is print-ready, in PDF format, for the classroom teacher, homeschool mom, or (free of charge) co-op leader. The other, THE PHOTOGRAPHER KIT is completely customizable for the photographer (or teacher, or co-op leader who intends to charge money) that would like to not only match the class materials to their branding, but also comes with a release to make a profit off of hosting a class. Please note: you do not have to customize the PHOTOGRAPHER KIT, it does come fully designed to be printed as is!

Frequently Asked Questions
DO I NEED A SPECIAL PROGRAM TO USE THE CURRICULUM?
For THE TEACHER KIT you do not. Simply open the PDF or JPEG files and print! If you choose THE PHOTOGRAPHER KIT, and want to customize the files, you will need Adobe Photoshop, as well as a knowledge of layers and editing a PSD file.
IF I PURCHASE THE TEACHER KIT AND DECIDE TO UPGRADE TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER KIT, CAN I PAY THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE?
Sure, just contact me.
ARE YOU PLANNING TO OFFER AN ADVANCED COURSE THAT COVERS EXPOSURE?
I am, that course is in the works!
IT SAYS AGES 7 - 12, BUT CAN A HIGH SCHOOL GROUP TAKE THIS CLASS?
Absolutely, but keep in mind it is a beginner class, there is an advanced version coming soon that goes more in depth and covers exposure.
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
Due to the digital nature of the purchase I do not. Please read all the information carefully and contact me with any questions prior to purchasing.
IS THIS PRODUCT SENT TO ME IN THE MAIL?
No, this is a digital download. You are responsible for printing the product. This can be done by printing page by page and inserting into a binder, or by having it bound at an office supply store.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY DOWNLOAD?
The files will be sent to you within 24 hours, often times within the hour or two.
IF I WANT TO HOST A CLASS AND CHARGE A FEE, BUT DO NOT PLAN TO CUSTOMIZE THE FILES, DO I STILL NEED THE PHOTOGRAPHER KIT?
Yes, you do. A part of the reason THE PHOTOGRAPHER KIT has a higher price tag is because it comes with a release stating you may host a class and earn a profit off of it.
