I'll teach you ...
The 10 steps to go from Beginner to Pro
The 5 essentials to escape the 9-5
If you have never used a camera but dream of picking it up and building a full-time career out of shooting photos and videos, this is for you.
If you have been creating content but aren’t growing an audience, are struggling to land paying clients, and overall are just not getting the results you deserve, this is for you.
If you’re fed up with the 9-5 lifestyle and know there’s so much more to life than doing work you don’t love, this is for you
My name is Christian and I’m a 27 year old Canadian living in Bali. Five years ago, I was working a 9-5 job that was considered to be the “dream” job but somehow found myself depressed and drained. I discovered that no amount of money or success would make me happy if I wasn’t doing what I loved.
So, I quit. I sold everything I owned and bought a 1-way ticket to Thailand with no money, no skills as a content creator and NO idea what I was doing.
Over the last 5 years, I have made a ton of mistakes and a few great decisions. I have built Lost LeBlanc into a million dollar business, I’ve traveled the world with my loved ones, and shared it all with a community of over 3 million people. But most of all, I’ve been able to earn my dream income by doing something I would have done for free. I’m here to help YOU do the same.
If you are picking up a camera for the first time then no stress! I deep dive into the basics of using your camera, understanding the different software options for editing your photos and videos and which is likely best for you. I even break-down what camera gear is best in 2020 based on your budget.
Become a skilled photographer behind the lens and in the editing room. In LCA, I share the entire shooting process. From the raw, behind the lens reality on how I shoot my photos AND the in-studio tutorials to show you how I edit them. From colour grading in Lightroom to sky replacements in Photoshop, these are the skills that will empower you to land your dream clients and start building your online following.
Videography is the core skill that is getting freelancers paid and giving content creators the opportunity to grow their online presence today and with that, LCA will teach you how to master the art of visual storytelling. No matter where you are at today, the academy will get you READY to start landing clients and getting PAID.
Get PAID to work with your DREAM clients - Believe it or not, you don’t need a following to start making money today but you do need strategy. In this section I teach you how to negotiate and price yourself, how to get free hotels and experiences to keep costs low and of course, how to build up multiple income sources. Lost LeBlanc became a million dollar business through diversifying revenue streams and applying the strategies I share with you.
There is more competition than ever before on social media but for those who have the right strategy, the opportunity has never been more exciting. In this side of the business curriculum, I will teach you how I have amassed an audience of 3+ million subscribers of over 200 million views across the social platforms and how YOU can too. Don’t waste another minute with strategies that don't work and start building your audience today.
Stop the guesswork. Get a proven plan that REALLY works.

Dozens of LCA members have told me that their favourite things about LCA is this community group. It has enabled members from around the world to collaborate, plan trips together, and support one another in growing their businesses. It has enabled members to be able to share this unique journey with likeminded individuals who they would not have been able to find otherwise. In addition to community, this is where you can ask your questions, get feedback on your work, and join in on the countless Creator Challenges we host in the exclusive community group!
ANYONE can enter LCA and with time and practice become a true professional. It’s built for any skill level!

At the moment there are over 100 videos and more than 40 hours of information-packed content.
This is my new full-time job. Content will continue to grow for many years to come and there is no end in sight.
You can start today without any software by focusing on the business modules and even some of the creative basics but when it’s time to dive in to editing, you will need a way to edit. You can certainly start with free editing software for mobile phones and computers however I recommend you get started with Adobe’s creative suite (Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro) or FinalCut Pro X
No! It is unrealistic to immediately drop all your responsibilities to chase your dreams BUT that is why I will teach you how to build the skills as quickly as possible until you are ready to make the jump into being a full-time content creator.
