At this ten-hour workshop, Julie Griffin will share the ins and outs of what she has learned in a fast five years as a professional photographer; going from almost burning out charging $60 for a one-hour session (oy!), to breaking even on gear expenses a year-and-a-half later, to finally making more than minimum wage, to becoming a local favorite in the Phoenix area for family and child portraiture.
Learn Julie's system for running a Family/Portrait Photography Business, dive into some business musts, gain the confidence to charge what you're worth, and build your portfolio with a shootout at golden hour in the exclusive private Agritopia peach orchard (Julie's favorite location). Attendees should be familiar with their cameras prior to workshop day as this workshop will not teach camera basics (click here for other education opportunities).
All attendees will be gifted an Annual Photography Permit allowing them twelve months of shooting in all the public areas of Agritopia Farm ($250 value). Attendees will also have the benefit of one-month of follow-up mentoring with Julie, as they make changes to their businesses!
Fun fact: Julie actually dropped out of Photography 101 in college, while she was pursuing a degree in Media Production and graphic design. From there, she started a career in marketing communications and production that preceded her time as a Gilbert resident, wife and mom; and eventually, a photographer. There's not one right or wrong way to get your photography business going, but ohhhh the things she wishes she had known when she started in this industry!
dinner and snacks will be provided
