"I‚Äôve had the great privilege of studying Liesl Walsh‚Äôs courses ‚ÄúSelling Online: How I Broke the Code‚ÄĚ, and now Mastering Photography and I wanted to share a few words with photographers looking for an easy leg-up to your next level. As a photographer, Liesl Walsh is the whole package: a master of imagining, planning, shooting, editing, and selling her work over and over again. As a photography educator, Liesl has the gift of teaching every one of these facets of photography so naturally with an unwavering open book and open-arms generosity, she leaves you fully confident and eager to apply what you learned immediately. Rarely does she leave a question unanswered during any of her classes because she already knows the potential challenges and guides you through them. And when there are questions, Liesl backs up her course with weekly live meetings to make sure you‚Äôve got all the answers and support you need to succeed. So, when it comes to finding a teacher to take you by the hand and show you how they do what they do so you can too, or need another professional to elevate your work with an objective set of trained eyes, you won‚Äôt find a more genuine, passionate, and knowledgeable photography instructor than Liesl Walsh."

"I think Liesl has produced one of the best tutorials for helping artists to set up an online website to help them sell their art through the platform Fine Art America.
It is so straight forward to follow, within minutes of starting to watch the videos I had an account set up and after watching a few more I had images uploaded to it.
Her videos are all easy to follow, everything is very clearly explained, and she shows you every step of the way how to set it up, manage it and how to maximize your potential for growth in sales.
I would highly recommend her course to anyone that wants to try and sell their work online, with her help and guidance I believe I will be selling my work in no time at all."

"Without a doubt the best online training if you want to master Fine Art America, Liesl doesn't miss a thing in this training, a master in her own right."

Immediate results after updating an image submitted to Liesl for feedback and using Liesl's simple workflow to get sales:

"Here is something I want to share with you.

I uploaded this image to my FAA page Saturday afternoon. I then immediately shared it on my Facebook pages. Some 30 minutes later I get some nice comments. Not even an hour later I get an email from FAA........

SOLD! 1 x 36" x 20" Canvas print!!

I think from uploading to selling must have been all less than 2 hours....."

"I recently completed the Liesl Walsh [Selling Your Prints on Fine Art America] class on KelbyOne, as well as her current online [Selling Photos Online: How I Broke The Code]. I am also enrolled in her Liesl Walsh Mastering Photography class. From the moment I enrolled in Liesl’s courses, I was impressed by her passion for her art and her unwavering commitment to empowering her students. 

With a rare blend of technical proficiency and artistic insight, Liesl has an ability to break down complex concepts into digestible nuggets of wisdom, telling the "Why‚ÄĚ behind the critique and suggested edits.¬†

In my opinion what sets Liesl apart is not just her mastery of photography and editing (see her website: https://www.lieslwalsh.com ), but her genuine investment in her student’s growth. She fosters an inclusive and supportive learning environment where creativity flourishes and confidence soars. Her personalized approach ensures that every student receives the guidance and encouragement they need to reach their full potential. 

I thoroughly enjoy learning from Liesl, I have learned more in a few short months with Liesl than in several years prior with other instructors. Her invaluable feedback and constructive criticism have encouraged me to continue to improve and given me the confidence to begin selling my own work. And for that, I am eternally grateful."

"Liesl Walsh and I have been colleagues and friends for several years. We met under the canopy of the Photoserge Academy. She has always been welcoming and available, offering her advice on many photography related issues. I know that I can always count on her artistic sensibilities, as they relate to photo processing and visual credibility. She's smart, has tremendous moral character, and cares deeply about her work. I'm certain that her sharing her Fine Art America  experience will help to fast track the process to getting more visibility and sales on the platform. 

Looking forward to experiencing her work."

"Liesl Walsh's Fine Art America (FAA) course was nothing short of a creative revelation. From the moment I joined, it was evident that I was in the hands of an exceptional instructor who possessed an in-depth understanding of FAA. Liesl's commitment to helping each of us succeed on this platform was truly inspiring, and her dedication knew no bounds.

What set Liesl apart was her unwavering dedication to her students' success. She went above and beyond her role as an instructor. Late-night questions were met with patient responses, and she tirelessly provided additional resources and support. Her genuine desire to see each of us excel was palpable, and it motivated us to put in our best efforts.

Liesl's enthusiasm was infectious, and her belief in our potential was a driving force for all of us. She encouraged us to explore our creativity, experiment with different techniques, and to aim for artistic excellence. Her feedback was constructive, her guidance invaluable, and her passion for our success unwavering.

Yet Liesl's course was not just about individual growth; it was a communal experience. The group of artists she had brought together was a diverse and talented bunch. We shared our struggles and celebrated our achievements, creating a supportive and inspiring community that nurtured creativity and artistic development.

I felt immensely grateful to be on this journey with Liesl and the wonderful artists in our group. The collaborative atmosphere, Liesl's expertise, and her dedication to our success were an unbeatable combination. I knew that, with her guidance and the support of this remarkable artistic community, my journey on Fine Art America would be filled with creativity, success, and a deep sense of gratitude for having found such an extraordinary teacher and group of fellow artists."

"I was skeptical about this course at first because I've actually been on FAA since 2013 - longer than Liesl, but with very few sales. 

Liesl's course really helped to clarify where and how to focus my efforts in promoting my work to get seen by potential buyers. There were tons of actionable tips, and a LOT of little hacks and "aha" moments for me. 

Highly recommend for anyone who wants to sell fine art prints online. I can't help wondering where I might be in my fine art print sales business now if I'd had access to all this info back in 2013!"

Made 16 sales on FAA in 3 months after starting the course

"I have been on Fine Art America (FAA) since 2021 and have had some sales but I knew my web site needed help. When I found out that Liesl created a course on how to properly use FAA I know it was for me.  The course offers so much information on how to navigate and set up your FAA web site.  The online course can be taken at your own pace which allows you time to take notes and go back and watch the videos again for reference.  Liesl set up the program so it is easy to understand yet so detailed.  I am learning so much during this course that it has helped me to learn how to make my site so much better. Each module is like discovering a new adventure.  The course also offers online group sessions where Liesl is there to help everyone and answer any questions about setting up their FAA site and how to promote your art. 

 I would recommend Liesl’s course, Selling Photos Online: How I Broke the Code, to everyone looking to sell and promote their art.  I believe that this course will help me to build a better FAA site which will lead to increased sales of my work. Well done Liesl, thank you!"

"Liesl Walsh has put together a phenomenal course to successfully sell art on Fine Art America. I have been a member of Fine Art America since 2015 but could not get anything going to sell photographs. Liesl's course has changed all that and it got me excited again about selling my art of FAA. 

I have known Liesl for a number of years through Serge Ramelli's Institute of Photography. She was always very helpful and a great teacher when I had questions regarding my work. Liesl is a great photographer and because she has learned all the ins and outs about selling art on Fine Art America, she is now a top seller on Fine Art America. 
 
I was very excited when she announced she had put a course together to help people promote their art on Fine Art America. In the few weeks since I started the course I have learned so much already about how to more effectively sell on Fine Art America and how to use social media to drive traffic to my Fine Art America website.
 
I am looking forward to continuing my course and to build my photography business with Liesl's help and collaboration with fellow students. I can recommend the course to anyone serious about selling their art online."

"I just finished your course Selling Photos Online.  Five Stars. Course is Outstanding!!!  The instruction on how to manage a Fine Art America website and think in terms of running a photography business is priceless for a non-business photographer.  I especially liked the details regarding pricing, managing more than one site, and joining/using groups, (i.e. those on Facebook, Instagram, FAA, Pinterest) to promote your business, and the requirements for setting up a business Facebook page.

In regards to your specific instruction on Fine Art America;  Invaluable.  Thank you so much.  You are the only instructor I've seen that teaches the details about Fine Art America.  Exceptionally helpful.  I joined FAA in 2017, posted one photo, but never did anything with it. I do have another web page where I have been posting, but mostly for friends and family. Not selling...

Since completing your course I now have a pretty good idea on what my FAA web page needs and where I need to improve... Your course taught everything I need in an easy to understand format, for having a successful photo website designed for success....so thank you so much... I'm a happy student. "

"Without exception, the Liesl Walsh training for Fine Art America is a gold mine of information and tips.  Easy to follow and understand.  Each lesson teaches the student how to build a successful webpage, navigate and use the features offered, with marketing insights for selling their creations.

Prior to her class, my website on FAA was stagnant, created in 2021, with no clear representation of my photography style and few followers.  I did not really know what I was doing.  After taking her course, I completely revamped my website, with new collections, new photos and a renewed focus on categorizing my photos for a better look and feel.

RESULTS:  In six months, my FAA page went from showing only 3 photographs and two followers to 168 photographs in nine Collections, 14 followers with 1411 visitors. I'm very pleased with the restart of my website.   Is there room for more improvement?  Of course.  Always something new to learn by fine-tuning my marketing, and new networking with peers and potential customers.  

Liesl also continues after course completion, with a two weekly Zoom meetings for her students.   She gives useful, and absolutely critical feedback for students that struggle with their techniques and readily answers technical questions regarding FAA functionality.

Overall, an excellent series of lessons, well structured and led by a truly experienced instructor.

On a side note, my FAA website is linked to my photo business webpage, which has also seen a significant increase in traffic and visits.

A big thanks for helping me get up and running with more content and useful online selling tips."

"What a great way to learn about Fine Art America. I'm now about 2/3 of a way through the videos and am enjoying all the detailed information you have in it. I am targeting for next week to start loading up pictures, but when I went back through your home decor trends, and I am going to edit some of my pictures to fit into that current decor style.

Again, thank you for all the work you put into the videos and your support on Mondays."
