Lost Creator Academy Module Reviews
Now, let’s take a look inside the academy. In this section of the Lost Creator Academy Review, I am going to discuss the modules offered and the value I found in each of them.
|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 film making, 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 on 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 a year 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 with plans to go full time in July. Like what?!
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 speed 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.
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 unfortunately at a slower rate due to lockdown but I am so excited to see where this journey takes me.
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.
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 where 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.
The lockdown in Ireland is currently easing, however, creating fresh content over the past few months has proved to be very difficult. As a result, any projects or collaborations have been put on hold. However, with the world circumstances looking up, I am pleased to say that I have a few new opportunities on the horizon. Opportunities I never in a million years would have dreamed to be possible. I am so excited to share them with you in the future.
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.
