A PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP FOCUSED ON BUILDING A THRIVING, LIFE-GIVING, PROFITABLE BUSINESS & WORKING WITH YOUR DREAM CLIENTELE
January 31- February 2, 2017
Friends, we are SO excited to be hosting our next all-inclusive photography workshop on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii! When refining what we wanted our workshop experiences to be like, we knew a few things:
- We wanted this series of workshops to be focused on building your dream business, life and clientele.
- The workshop should be fluid, with opportunities for growth, questions, and deeper conversation throughout the few days as we all stay in one house together
- We wanted to bring in expert guest speakers with such passion and precision in what they do that they’ll inspire you to grow in new ways
- Our incredible creative team will once again bring beautiful shoots to life, and we’ll be using the incredible backdrop of Hawaii!
We’re renting an incredible beachfront house on the stunning North Shore of Oahu where we’ll stay together for 2.5 days. All meals and lodging are included as we LOVE how it builds community to stay together. There will be two gorgeous styled shoots on the beaches + mountains of Hawaii (that you WILL be able to submit for publications for the first time!), a beautifully styled welcome dinner, florals and design by the incredible Oleander Florals & Design and Sandpiper & Co., discounted film processing through Photovision, two guest speakers: branding specialist Jen Olmstead of Tonic Site Shop and Style Me Pretty Editor Elizabeth Greene, and more amazing sponsors! Tim & I have built our business over the past six years to be both highly profitable and one that brings us and our clients joy! We both have business backgrounds and are so passionate about helping photographers and artists tap into the simple principles of connecting to your dream clients. We can’t WAIT to meet you, share meals together, talk over all things business and photography, and shoot together on the stunning island of Oahu!
