A Greater Story – Singapore

A Greater Story is a photography workshop, but you will walk away with more important things than settings and photoshop tricks, hopefully inspired to run a meaningful business and live the life you’ve always wanted.

Over the two days we will discuss a range of different subjects. I will share my story and show you how it affects everything I do. I have built a business and body of work completely based on who I am and the needs I have and I will try to push and challenge you to do the same. We will discuss how inspiration works, how to push through creative blocks and how telling a good story can change your business dramatically.

We will discuss – in detail – how storytelling impacts everything from branding to client interaction, pricing and sales.

I have in a very short amount of time built a highly successful photography business, but I’ve also made mistakes and I will take you through both the good and the bad. Today I’m one of the most booked destination wedding photographers in the world and we’ll talk about that aspect of my business too, the choices I’ve made to get to where I am today.

We will go through gear, software, workflow and post processing. We will also talk about your role as an artist, finding your voice (you already have one), social media, how to get published and a bunch of other things.

After the two days you will hopefully walk away inspired and reassured that you have what it takes to move your business – and your life – in the direction it needs.

WHEN: SINGAPORE 26-27 MARCH 2014. If the first one sells out, I will most likely do another workshop in Kuala Lumpur or Singapore four days after the first one, but I need to check the interest before being able to commit.

Venue still to be decided.

WHAT: Two day workshop, meet and greet  the night before the workshop, drinks, snacks and lunch both days. You will also receive a number of discounts from suppliers I work with as well as workshop and inspiration material.

PRICE: $1750 AUD

HOW: To secure a spot, send an email with the subject “SINGAPORE WORKSHOP” to mail [at] We will answer the emails in order and to secure your spot you will need to pay a non-refundable retainer of $1000 AUD. First come, first served. You can pay by credit card or paypal. The number of seats are limited to 15.

wilson chua - Hi,

I would love to join your workshop.

Let me know how to make payment.


Oh, California.

Road trips. There’s something magical about seeing a country out the window of a car. Take in the landscape, smell the air change from salty ocean to pine forests. Listen to good music. Stop for food somewhere and then keep driving. Often without a goal.

This is the California I saw during a few warm weeks last fall.

Rest in peace, Leonard Knight.
