DPO PRO Combines My Experience as a Media Pro with Proven, Time-Tested Professional Organizing Techniques to Get Your Photos Organized, One Step at a Time!
I CARE about Your Photos!
As a Certified Photo Organizer and Personal Historian, I truly believe few things are as important as your memories. After all, if you don't have them, what do you have? So I'm going to show you exactly what to do to keep them organized and safe. It's my mission in life to save as many photos as I can from what scientists are referring to as "the digital black hole."
In this digital photo organizing class, I will be showing you the exact step-by-step organizing formula I've used over and over again to organize my clients' photo collections. This is what they pay me the big bucks for!
Not only will I show you how to get organized, but I will also show you how to stay organized, which, believe me, is much harder! I will not let you fail!
If You Have Ever Tried Getting Organized and Failed, You Didn't Complete the Steps in the Right Order.
Organizing is a process, just like cooking, so if you try to make a pancake before you've made the batter, it's not going to work. Right?
Chefs can experiment, yes, but that's only because of the years of practice and learning they have gone through. I bet they took a cooking class or two...and studied with a mentor. They have mastered the craft, know the ins and outs of all the ingredients, and can improvise based on their needs.
But that's not for novices.
If you're a beginner, and you try to experiment, your dish is probably going to end up in the trash a few times before you get it right. But once you have the recipe, it suddenly becomes much easier.
This Course is the Recipe!
( Yep, This Actually Works! )
Updates? Special Requests? You Got It!
Technology Changes Fast, It's True!
That's Why You'll Have Access to All Future Updates!
And if There's a Tutorial You'd Like to See Included,
"I know what a good teacher is because I have been supervising and evaluating teachers for 22 years. Effective teachers have a real understanding of who their students are, have clear goals for their developments as learners, and know how to help their students meet their goals. Caroline does all of that beautifully. Many people have a great understanding of technology, but few can teach what they know to others. Caroline has led me to become an active and effective participant in the twenty-first century. It has been transformative."

Why Should I Buy This Course?
Can't I Just Google How to Do This?
Glad you asked! I suppose you could Google some of this stuff, but let me tell you why that wouldn't be such a great idea! Here are the top 3 reasons why you should invest in this course with me:
1. I'm Guaranteeing You a Specific Result!
That's right. This is a biggie. You're not really paying for the course, you're paying for the outcome. Your photos will be organized. Your workflow will be seamless. And if it isn't, we'll figure out why and fix it. Together.
Google can't do that.
2. You’re Getting Education, Not Information
This isn't just a bunch of random information that makes no sense. This is a proven strategy that takes you from A to B in the least amount of time possible. Each lesson builds upon the previous one to ensure that you're actually developing skills and applying everything that you're learning to your digital photo collection. In short, you don't know what you don't know, and I'm gonna tell you exactly what that is.
Google can't do that.
3. You're Getting Me - Your Personal Coach!
When you enroll in my class, I take your education seriously. I take your time seriously. I take your investment seriously. I'm committed to your success and I'm going to be there every step of the way to make sure you graduate on time. I'm going to motivate you, and keep you accountable. I'm gonna be the kick in the pants you need to finally get this done.
I work for you, not for Google.

Here is an Example of a Tech Tutorial!
"As a relatively new photo organizer, I was fortunate enough to try out Caroline's course, and I was so impressed! She was able to break down big topics into manageable chunks, which helped diminish the overwhelm...I really appreciated that the modules were only a few minutes long each, and you can stop and go as you wish, or even leave out a lesson if something is not relevant to you. I can wholeheartedly recommend this course to anybody who is interested in becoming a photo organizer as well as to anybody who wants to properly look after their photo collection."
