There are several exciting photography events, throughout the Los Angles and Orange county area’s in Southern California, happening in the next few months. Many of these events are free or at a very low cost. This is a great way to connect with like minded passionate photographers and get inspired. I am excited to be apart of these events and hope to see you there!

Wisdom and Wine
This is a private afternoon workshop, held in Huntington Beach, limited to 16 people. I put together this informative workshop to help mentor photographers wanting to create a successful photography businesses. There are numerous workshops offered to improve your shooting and post processing skills, but there seems to be a lack of workshops that focus on the marking and business side of photography. During this informative workshop I will share my own experiences in making the transition from a successful career to full time photographer including; creating income diversification, finding a focus in your photography and why it is important, building a team as a solo photographer, collaboration, cross-marketing, the importance of social media, strategies in having your work reviewed beyond the obvious, how to get through the hurdles, important facts in setting up your business properly, and much more. This will be followed by a private wine tasting where we can relax, network, and passionately discuss photography. This workshop is 1/2 full. DETAILS
