In case you guys didn’t notice I took a little while off of my in-person teaching when Baby Hudson was born…well “Baby” Hudson turned 3 this summer so I think its time to make my return and I want you to be a part of it! Seriously I have gotten so many emails asking about a workshop and it was overwhelming to get back into it after taking so much time away from it but it’s like riding a bike right? Truth is I LOVE TEACHING – its the deciding the what and hows that make me procrastinate (vulnerable moment here) because I want to do it all, teach it all, and make sure that each one of you gets the most out of it that you can, something that transforms both your images and your business and, honestly, not to be melodramatic but…..your life. You can have a successful, profitable business and create gorgeous images for both your clients and feed your soul and have an amazing family…I want to be a part in building that.
So we are going back to original Beach Retreat for these because I want to form relationships not just teach…a Friday night Welcome Dinner so we can really get to know one another and talk shop. This is one of my favorite things-not only can you gain perspective from me but from the other photographers there as well. Then Saturday will begin the “real deal” – full on everything we can cram in! I have a full schedule but just to give you an idea here is what I have in mind it’ll go something like this…
Friday Night: Welcome Dinner
Saturday: Sunrise Family Beach Session
Magical Garden Child Session (Semi-Styled) – Creating a magical image with minimal resources
Back to the Studio for editing (using those sessions as well as generalizing to other editing)
Lunch (Shop Talk/Working Lunch)
Business, Marketing, SEO, Website Stuff, IPS model vs. online galleries, etc.
Sunset Styled Shoot-Out on the Beach (EPIC but secret 🙂
Post Workshop Bonfire on the Beach with S’mores and Drinks
WHEN: October 6-7, 2017
LOCATION: South Walton, Kansas Pitts Photography & Design Studio, various locations in close proximity
AIRPORT CODES: ECP (Southwest, Delta, United), VPS (Delta, Allegiant, American, United), PNS (further but usually less expensive-same airlines)
ACCOMMODATIONS: As of now this is a BYOA (bring your own accommodations) but if enough ladies will not be bringing spouses/kids I can coordinate a beach house for everyone to split the costs and we can rent a beach retreat house like I have done in the past. That will be decided in the private group. Otherwise you can begin the search for lodging at www.visitsouthwalton.com. There is Courtyard Marriott as well as a Residence Inn nearby. If you want a resort type of place, condo, or home rental please let me know and I can assist (and you can also find rentals on the previous Visit South Walton) or you can sue my old stamdby, VRBO which I love.
WHAT’S INCLUDED: Friday night dinner, pastries and coffee for Saturday breakfast, lunch on Saturday, bonfire Saturday night as well as a $500 gift certificate to my SHOP. And a super fabulous beach bag with lots of goodies from our workshop sponsors!
WHAT DO YOU NEED? We will go over all that once you are all signed up and in the private group. As far as qualifications just a basic understanding of your camera and your imagination and inquisitive mind!
More Sponsors coming soon…
