Learn How

Lenspiration provides family-friendly photography courses and training to help us learn photography and shoot monthly photo assignments.

Go Shoot!

This is the fun part! Use whatever camera you have to go and shoot the assignment! Deadlines help eliminate procrastination.

Submit Photos

After shooting the assignment, utilize the Lenspiration forums as you work through the process of organizing, editing and submitting your photos.

Watch Critique

Get invaluable feedback on the photos you submit for each assignment by watching Lenspiration’s monthly photo critique webinars.

Get Published

Whether you win the assignment and get paid or not, we can brainstorm ideas for how to get your photos and new-found photography skill used in other ways!

What folks are saying

“I have to say, I just may be the biggest fan of Lenspiration yet. I am SUPER excited about this website and I can’t wait to put a photo up for critique! :D”

-Kina

“Just wanted to share how your photo tips are paying off . . . we got our local newspaper today, and I was surprised to see that a photo I took was on the front! If it was not for what I’ve learned with Lenspiration, my skills would be far less right now. So thank you!!”

-Hannah

“Honestly, I don’t know if my trial-and-error method of learning photography would have worked very well without anyone to “coach” me along. I have sure learned a lot with Lenspiration.”

-Thierry

Meet your instructor

Hi! I’m James Staddon a landscape, event, wedding, and travel photographer from West Virginia.

Captivated by God’s creation and inspired by my uncle’s photography at an early age, I started exploring photography in the early 2000s, began pursuing it seriously in 2006, and jumped into it professionally in 2013 under the name of Lenspiration.

Through the assignments, workshops and various other opportunities offered by Lenspiration, I love to see inspiration planted, nurtured and expressed for the glory of God in the work of other photographers!
