As a successful business entrepreneur and photographer, you’re passionate about the work you do. You like many others are interested in the state of the industry and where it’s headed. Through education in both technical camera, posing and lighting skills as well as sound business advice and competitive pricing, we can all help shape and secure the industry for the future. An understanding of the digital market along with where it’s headed and what it means for the photography industry is key. Each photographer and photography business is unique, one thing we can all agree on is making the process an experience our clients will remember is one of the most important parts of creating moments that showcase individuality, bonds, and milestones.
While there are numerous conventions with big platform speakers, a large tradeshow, and tons of people, sometimes these events make it hard to spend one-on-one or small group time with each other. An uprising of “hands-on” workshops have popped up on the larger scale with multiple “teachers” in the same location along with single studio hosting one or two-day events. These events typically focus on set topics and the time seems to fly by.
With a retreat, you and your participants will share your meals, your living space and your scheduled and free time. You’ll be in a small group environment working on skills that touch upon the areas and interests of the attendees along with your specialty. Walls come down and true colors shine. Personal and business related bonds are created that extend long beyond the retreat’s end date. You all share in an experience that can’t be replicated or explained because “you just had to be there.”
