One of my goals for 2012 was to add more workshops to my schedule. The past year has been quite busy and there wasn’t any time, but this year I’m planning ahead! And finally it’s here! The dates you’ve all been asking me about :)
So firstly, why do I do workshops? It’s simple. I love sharing. I love meeting new people. I love inspiring and empowering photographers. And most of all, I love to see people blossom in something they love! So, if you’re a photographer that would like to learn more about the business of photography, you’re welcome to read more about my workshops for 2012 below.
What can I expect?
My workshops are intimate, fun, practical and we talk a lot!
The main purpose of the two day wedding photography workshop will be to help, educate and inspire photographers about the wedding industry and to help them build a strong photography business.
This workshop is open to only 12 attendees at a time and I will work on a first come, first serve basis. Please note that this workshop is suitable for wedding photographers that have a basic knowledge of photography and have at least 1 year of experience.
The workshop is a two day intensive experience, with lots of talk, sharing, Q&A time, as well as a practical & gorgeous styled shoot by the www.theprettyblog.com team.
