A Greater Story is a two day workshop I’ve been working on for the last year. I even bought a fancy domain and everything. But since that site is a work in progress we’ll have to start here.
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.
