What is it?
Two days of workshop to teach and talk about different ways to create a sustainable business being a family & portrait photographer, or adding that onto your wedding photography income, because you can!

What's included?

A two day workshop with Haley Adele & Ruth Gilmour chatting all things business, goals, money, value, social media, digitals, products, pricing, systems and productivity. You'll get to hear from awesome speakers such as Kate from The Curated Now and Rob from Queensberry as well as get to check out amazing Professional Print Lab Products in person! Your lunch at a delicious local spot along with afternoon tea and refreshments is all included. We will also pop to dinner with anyone that wants to hang on Saturday evening and chat (optional at your cost). Oh, and all the spot prizes and goodieeee baggggs!

Who is it for?

Have you ever thought...

  • Pricing for family portraits is overwhelming

  • I love shooting families but I feel like I'm shooting for free

  • I don't sell products because it's all too confusing

  • Weddings are my main income so I don't need to charge much for families.

  • I don't have time to invest in the portrait side of my business

  • How else do I get bookings aside from social media

  • I don't have enough time

If you are ready to create a more sustainable and profitable business alongside others that want this as well then this is for you!
