• The Workshop Experience

The next workshop date is being announced EARLY this year! Aren’t you proud of me? I’m trying to give everyone a nice heads up since it will be coming up at the beginning of February 2013! The next Workshop Experience will take place in Richmond, VA on February 8th from 9am-6pm. The cost is $750 per person and when I am asked “So what is the workshop about?”…. My best response is this… The Workshop Experience in a nutshell is me teaching 12-16 photographers as much as I possibly can in a matter of  9 hours. The goal of the workshop is for the attendees to learn what took me 4 YEARS to learn in one day!

It’s a lot to cover and we move quickly but how amazing would it be to not make certain mistakes in your business because someone who has been there steered you in the right direction? This is an over saturated industry right now. Photographers are coming out of the woodwork! So how do you MAKE it?! How can you be sure that your business will withstand the over population of starter photogs in your area? It’s intimidating and it’s hard to do but I managed to make it happen and I LOVE sharing how I did it. There’s nothing I love more than seeing a LIGHTBULB come on for certain photographers in the room when they realize what their business has been missing!  The Workshop Experience is about empowering photographers to take their business to the next level by teaching what has worked well for me over the last 4+ years.


My hope is that the photographers that attend my workshops leave completely and totally OVERWHELMED… in a GOOD WAY. That’s how everyone should feel after a great workshop. You should be pushed and challenged and your brain should be full of new ideas to take home and immediately implement into your business. If this sounds like something that your business needs, I welcome you to join us on February 8th in Richmond, VA for The Workshop Experience! We’re SO excited about this. We’re actually only opening it up to 12 photographers this round! I want to make it as personal as possible and 12 attendees is a GREAT size!!

” I had an absolute blast at your Workshop Experience yesterday.  It was fun, entertaining, educational,emotional, and motivational all rolled in to one little day. I have never been so pumped up and excited about my business.  I go to workshops and follow people online because I love their work and want my work to be like theirs.  Well, after last night…I don’t want to be Katelyn James, I want to be Beth Souza…and I am so excited about that!” – Beth

Looking good Brooke!

    AMAZING!! I am so excited for you and all of the fabulous things you have going on!!

  6. Ashlyn reply

    I want to go!!! Seems amazing! I am in beginning stages of a business, though I’m not new to photography. That one part about staying afloat especially appealed to me because we have gazillions of photographers in our area… And truthfully, I’m better than half of them! It sounds prideful but it’s true!
    Wish I didn’t live so far away… :)

  7. Lindsay Fauver reply
