The workshop will be a full immersive experience at one of the luxurious haciendas in Yucatan Mexico. Students will arrive on Monday, and be greeted with a traditional Mexican welcome dinner onsite. Upon check in, students can enjoy the hacienda, take a tour, or simply relax in their well appointed room. On Tuesday, we will tackle the artistic side of wedding photography. I will discuss how to brand yourself to attract high end clientele, my journey to becoming a photographer, posing, shooting for editorial and much more. In the afternoon, students will enjoy lunch on site and a beautifully styled shoot by Type A Society in the afternoon. I will lead the photographers to make sure you capture breathtaking images that will elevate your portfolio.
On day 2, we will discuss real world business stratagies that will help you elevate your brand to the next level.There will be a heavy concentration on strategies to help students book more destination weddings. More than 50% of my weddings are from destination/international clients, and I will share what it takes to book those clients and still remain profitable. We will also discuss album upsell, SEO strategies, how to price yourself and so much more.
On the morning of Day 3, you will spend one on one time with me in going over your individual portfolio and I will help you curate your social media & website. We will say our farewell after lunch!
You will walk away with practical strategies that can be implemented immediately into your own business. Expect to have lots of one-on-one time with myself. The workshop is purposely kept small & intimate in a judgement free environment. I want everybody to feel comfortable in asking all those embarrassing (but important!) questions you might not be comfortable in asking in a big group setting. Expect to have lots of fun in a well structured classroom setting. I can’t wait to meet you!
