What is Lost Creator Academy?
If you have clicked on this article, I already presume you are familiar with Lost Creators Academy but just in case, here is a brief description. Lost Creator Academy, otherwise known as LCA is an online training platform for aspiring content creators created by Lost LeBlanc. Inside the Academy, there are over 110 videos and counting, which adds up to 60 plus hours worth of training. The academy teaches students everything they need to know about the world of content creation. Students are introduced to in-depth ways to advance their photography, videography and editing skills. The training also provides students with a way to enter and excel at the business side of content creation.
Who is Christian Le Blanc?
Christian Le Blanc is one of the world’s leading travel filmmakers who has spent the past 5 years earning an income online through content creation. He is an insanely talented photographer, videographer and storyteller, who knows the ins and outs of the industry. Since leaving his 9 to 5 job, Christian has turned content creation into a 7 figure business and is now passing on his knowledge to his students.
Who Should Join Lost Creator Academy?
The great thing about Lost Creator Academy is it is so diverse. Meaning it is suitable for beginners and intermediate level content creators. It is perfect for those who are looking to turn their dream job of content creation into a reality, by eventually quitting their 9 to 5 and working remotely around the world.
One thing I will say about LCA is it is not a get rich quick kinda deal. Christian provides his students with the fundamentals, it is then up to you to choose how to use them.
If you are willing to put in the hard work and dedication it takes to become a full-time content creator, then I highly recommend you invest in Lost Creator Academy to help you achieve your goal.
|Module||Module Topic||My Review|
|Module 1: Content Creator Fundamentals||This module covers the fundamentals of photography. Perfect for those picking up a camera for the first time. |
Topics include: Editing Softwares, suggested equipment and camera basics.
|When I first joined LCA in April 2020 the only piece of tech I owned was my mobile phone and a GoPro. |
This module helped me master my skills (See my personal results)
|Module 2: Master Your Photography||This Module helps students advance their photography skills by teaching them to become skilled photographers both behind the lens and in the editing room.|
Topics include: Camera Movements, On-Location Tutorials, Lightroom/Photoshop techniques & More
|This module changed the game for me, before starting LCA, I had very little photography knowledge. |
I have since gone on to earn back the money I invested in LCA by using my new photography skills.
|Module 3: Master Your Videography||The videography module really has it all. |
Topics include confidence in front of the camera, compelling storytelling, advanced filmmaking, Camera Movements, On-Location Tutorials, Editing Techniques & More.
All these skills are essential for those looking to grow their online brand and evidently, get paid to do so.
|When I first joined LCA I had very basic videography skills. |
My biggest take-home from this module was how to tell a compelling story.
I used Christians teaching to develop a ‘hook’ for my content. It gave my followers a reason to keep coming back for more.
I am currently working on advancing my videography skills and am getting better with each practice.
|Module 4: Build a Profitable Business||Module 4 is probably the most interesting, and potentially the most valuable. |
In this module, students are given insider knowledge on how the business side of content creation works.
Topics include: How to start a profitable business, land brand deals, collaborations, work with your ideal clients, sell your own products & more. All without having to have a large following.
In my experience, a lot of the information in the business module is hard to find elsewhere on the internet. At least, not for free.
|It may sound a little strange, but I skipped straight to module four when I first joined LCA.|
I know I said I didn’t have much experience in photography or videography, however, I was not new to the world of content creation. I have been running my blog for three years previous and I was ready to bring it to the next level.
The business module opened my eyes to possible opportunities and gave me the confidence I needed to start reaching for them.
|Module 5: Grow your online brand||In the fifth module, Christian teaches you how to grow your brand online. |
Topics Include: Growing a following on both Instagram and youtube
|I have yet to fully complete Module 5. I will update this once I have.|
|Bonus Modules: Creative Coaches & Reviewing Your Content||As of recently, Christian has invited some guest lecturers to educate LCA members on certain topics that Christian doesn’t consider himself an expert in. |
Giving students an insight into the world of content creation from a different perspective.
Christian also has some lessons where he reviews LCA members content.
Lost Creator Academy Extra’s
Christian goes above and beyond to ensure that each student gets their money’s worth once they take the leap and purchase Lost Creators Academy. Not only does he offer 60 plus hours of virtual training, he also provides students with the extra’s down below.
A Lifetime Access: By purchasing LCA students are granted lifetime access to the program and any future updates. This allows them to educate themselves at their own pace and become familiar with any new changes within the industry.
Pricing Calculator: When first starting off in the world of content creation it can be hard to find the right ‘price’. Christian provides students with an online calculator to help them decide how much they should charge for certain projects. This includes freelance work, youtube promotion and Instagram campaigns.
Email Templates: Possibly one of the most valuable extra’s in LCA is Christian’s email templates that can be used to reach out to brands for collaboration opportunities. All templates are extremely professional and easy to adapt to suit your own personal brand.
Media Kit Template: Christian also provides students with his media kit template. A media kit is a content creators version of a ‘CV’ or ‘Resume’, highlighting your previous work, social media analytics and website stats.
Feedback from Christian: Christian or members of his team often reply to questions asked at the academy. This is a great way to get professional advice from those already working in the industry.
Lost Creator Academy Community
I saved the best for last, without a doubt the best thing about LCA is the amazing community. Since joining I have made so many lifetime friends, from both my home country Ireland and from around the world. We all work together to grow, learn and chase our passion. I can not wait for international travel to kick start again so I can meet more amazing people from the LCA family. If you do join Lost Creators Academy, I have highlighted down below some of the community benefits.
- Clubhouse Chats (they’re the best)
- Speed Dating Events
- Weekly hangouts
- Workshops by LCA members
- Life Long Friends
- International Meet Ups
- & More
It is amazing to have a group of like-minded individuals to chat with and discuss plans and ambitions. The community is only getting stronger and it would be great to see you become a part of it.
Lost Creator Academy Review: My Personal Experience
Investing in LCA is possibly one of the best decisions I have ever made. And that is a very big statement to make. I first purchased the program back when it had maybe 300 members, if even. I was so scared. I feared it wouldn’t be worth the large price tag. There was basically no reviews at the time. And everything the academy offered seemed too good to be true.
I must give it to Christian, he has remained extremely involved in every aspect of the Academy, even nearly two years after the initial launch date. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised at how involved he is.
It feels weird typing this but Lost Creator Academy has quite literally changed my life. I went from being someone who ran a marginally successful travel blog as a side hustle, to a confident content creator who is now working full time to achieve my goals.
I get asked quite often on Instagram ‘Is LCA worth the money?’. My answer is always. Yes! If you are willing to put in hours of hard work and dedication to make your dreams a reality then LCA is the stepping stone you need.
I have had a few people challenge that answer with ‘but can’t I find all the information for free on the internet?’. And to some extent, they could be right. I could have ‘just googled’ many of the topics discussed in LCA BUT…. google doesn’t give me access to a highly dedicated mentor, an amazing community and insider knowledge.
I reckon by joining LCA, I have sped up the time it would have taken to reach my current skillset by about 4 years. I now have access to everything I need to become a professional photographer, videographer and storyteller and it is located all in one place. The more time I put in, the better I become.
Lost Creator Academy has given me the confidence I needed to just go for it! I now have the determination to chase my dreams and make them a reality! And for that, I want to say a big thank you Christian and my fellow LCA students.
If this is something you are looking for then I’d highly recommend enrolling in Lost Creator Academy.
My Results after joining Lost Creator Academy
One of the best things Lost Creator Academy has given me is Confidence. Before joining, I would have been terrified to chase my dreams. Here are some of my favourite achievements so far. I’m now no longer scared to vlog in public. Which was one of the biggest hurdles for me when I start working on my youtube channel and trying hard to build engagement on my Instagram stories.
One of the biggest takeaways I have got from LCA is understanding how Collaborations works. Before joining LCA, I had no clue of my worth. I didn’t know how to approach my dream brands, I didn’t think I was even good enough to work with brands in the first place and I definitely did not have brands reaching out to me.
Since joining I have gotten the opportunity to go on all expenses paid press trips both in Ireland and abroad. I have partnered with some of my dream clothing brands and worked with some amazing adventure companies. Check out my portfolio page for an example of some of my collaborations to date.
I am now in the position where I am starting to get paid to work with brands. That’s right, payment for my hard work and dedication to my content. Before joining LCA, I never would have dreamed of getting paid to travel. To me, that is just mind-blowing.
If you are hoping to level up your collaboration game I’d highly recommend you join LCA today. I promise you will not regret it.
A few months after joining Lost Creator Academy I noticed my Instagram following began to increase. My photography skills improved at a rapid rate and people started to notice.
I then decided to niche down and focus on Ireland travel. I worked hard at creating my own style of content and invested a lot of time into Instagram reels. That’s when my growth began to skyrocket and I started to gain a much larger following. In December my account grew from 1,500 followers to 10k in just 6 weeks. Safe to say I was on cloud 9.
There were two main reasons for such quick growth, the first being the skills I learned from LCA and the second being endless hours of hard work (I released a new reel every day for a whole month).
My Instagram account is continuing to grow, however, at a slower rate due to it not being my main focus at the moment. The higher volume of followers has allowed me to land dream collabs like working with local tourism boards.
I spent the first half of 2020 pulling my hair out because no matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t get my Tiktok account to ‘take off’. However, I never gave up, and with the help of fellow LCA members, I discovered my own style and what worked for my account. Tiktok is now one of my favourite social media platforms and I can’t wait to continue to see it grow. I went from zero followers to 50K+ in the space of a year.
Selling My Photography
One of the highlights of my content creation journey to date is the first time someone purchased one of my photography prints. I was in pure disbelief that another person liked my work so much that they were willing to pay for it.
My print store has since gone on to be one of the most successful aspects of my journey to date. And that is something I am extremely grateful to Christian for as without joining Lost Creator Academy I would not have the skills needed to create these beautiful landscape images.
This brings us to the end of my Lost Creator Academy Review. I hope you enjoyed it and I’ll hopefully see you in the Academy soon.
