Makelight is a growing community of over 25,000 people learning, inspiring and supporting each other to grow as creative, entrepreneurial people.

With our online courses you can learn to improve your photography, grow your Instagram, boost your online business and lots more!

In 2017 we have new courses, brand new tools, a new mentoring programme and tons of inspiration coming your way!

Read on for what's on offer today…


Our Photography for Makers course will help you to improve the images you take of the things you make and grow an appreciative audience around you and your maker story.

An inspiring way to kick off the year, this course will help you to tell the story of your creative business, create an Instagram account worth following and improve your imagery wherever you are online.

Better images are good for business!


Grow your online business – join The Technique

If you're planning on starting a new online business or growing something you've already started, we've designed a course for you!

We've made a tool for you that will give you a beautiful overview of the colours and themes that you've been sharing on Instagram.


Before Christmas we held a live online photography and styling workshop to help you create beautiful images to share. 

We're back again with a three hour live interactive workshop for Valentines Day.

Join in wherever you are in the world and create some beautiful images to celebrate the big day!


In 2016 we hosted an inspiring weekend away for a handful of lucky folk from the Makelight community.

This year, we're doing it again, and we're keeping it small again. Come and enjoy an inspiring, creative weekend away in the English country-side with like minds.
