WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AS AN ART FORM
Are you a wedding photographer looking for an experience to radically transform your world? Are you looking for a community of photographers who are eager to learn and share together without ego? EVOLVE is a game-changing adventure. It’s for the person who is hungry for knowledge to shift their perspective, their business, and their photography.
Join us for a learning experience specifically designed for visual artists. Are you ready to be a pressure cooker of awesomeness? Be courageous! Come bond with us. Play. Stumble upon greatness. Launch yourself into the next level. Total immersion into a tight group of curious photographers all sharing and encouraging each other. Push yourself to evolve, revolutionize your perspective, technical photography skills, business strategies, and personal optimization by growing together with a devoted group of photographers.
Dive in deep and take your professional and personal growth to the next level by setting yourself up for success. We will give you everything we’ve learned over the past 10+ years and invite you to examine everything you do (and don’t do). Most importantly, there will be quality time to practice skills and refine perspectives.
We may be faster alone but we are stronger together!
WHERE & WHEN?
TODOS SANTOS, BAJA MEXICO

This is going to be so much more than a workshop. It’s not just education, it’s a shared experience, it’s bonding and growing with a unique community of photographers in one of the loveliest villages in Baja~ It’s for the seeker who is open-minded about their blind spots and willing to be vulnerable and share with others. There will be round table discussions where people can share how they aren’t afraid to fail, conversations about life, weddings, work, and business. This is a unique space where we learn more by curiosity than fear.

– personal growth challenges
