Dream Business Weekend

photography education, photography class near me, digital photography basics

What happens when you combine my Business Mentoring day with a  Photography Skill Buildling Day? BOOM! You have yourself a Dream Business Creation Weekend! I'd love to spend two full days with you helping to launch your dream business.

Day One Focuses on Photography Skill Building~ We will spend our morning going over various lighting techniques both studio and on location with a live model to create some portfolio worthy images. The afternoon will be spent learning editing and basic retouching skills in both Lightroom and Photoshop.  You'll leave Day One with some powerful images to add to your portfolio as well as the skills and confidence required to suceed moving forward. Day one is all about empowering, educating and having tons of fun learning (or relearning) how to make incredible images with the gear that you have.

Day Two Focuses on Business Strategy and Implementation

Day two is where we take those incredible images you made and learn how to attract your ideal clients, price your work appropriately and create the lucrative photography business you've always dreamed of.
