I had the honor of hosting this Blue Coastal editorial photography workshop, and it was SO much fun.
I haven’t really spoken on the blog about this yet, but education on photography is a huge part of what I do. Hosting workshop events like this and offering one-on-one mentorship is a dream. As photographers, we have SO much to learn, and continue learning. Our styles can change and our work is constantly evolving. One of the key things I spoke about in this workshop was how I completely elevated my business from the budget to the luxury market. Its main focus was learning how to attract your ideal client. Of course, we had a beautiful large-scale shoot in a luxurious coastal aesthetic.
22 photographers from around the country flew in to meet me and learn from me, which was absolutely amazing. To be in a position where I can teach others about this craft is a dream come true! When I started my business, I just kind of went head first into everything. I learned a TON on my own along the way! But, I know the value of a mentor and educator. It means so much to me that I can fill that role for others now. To work in a GORGEOUS space with like-minded creatives, wanting to learn and evolve is just unreal. I am so blessed, you guys.
There is MUCH to say about this space and the photos we got. That’s all coming in a post next week, so stay tuned! I wanted to give you all a taste of the ridiculously stunning editorial photos. Please enjoy these little sneaks of what’s to come!
I have another photography workshop coming soon, so reach out if you have any questions! I love being an educator and constantly learning more myself, so I cannot wait to see you there. If you’re interested in mentoring services, be sure to sign up! Spots always go fast. As always, follow us on Instagram for announcements and updates.
