What to Expect

Workshops and retreats are always a great way to elevate your brand. With so many on the market to attend, it's important to understand if The Elevate Series is for you. My number one goal is for each of my attendees to leave with the ability and confidence to go home and produce quality work that is a unique and specific to your brand. I want to you to leave changed forever, with "ah ha" moments, making big changes to your marketing, knowing who your client is, where to find them and how to sell to them. I want to make sure you stand out. Of course we will have the chance to shoot together on some gorgeous styled editorials as well as learning how to style, pose, and make leaps and bounds on our art with composition. I will be teaching on every topic from shooting film, posing, composition, lighting, how to get published, how to polish real weddings, social media marketing, customer experience, styling and how to build a community. We will get to work alongside planners, designers, florists and photographers alike and learn how team work makes the dream work.
