Life is a journey of constant learning.

I started working for a local wedding photographer at the age of 14. It took time, tears and lots of learning to get where I am today. Through the past 18 years, I've taken on every opportunity I could, to learn. During the years, I've built a few companies (some worked, some failed and some turned into brands, like The Pretty Blog).

With each experience and very risk I took, I learned a lot about myself, photography, business in general, brand building, marketing, content creation, social media, online business and I learned a ton about people!

The learning part, was the hardest. It's easy to do things that you've done before, but every new adventure or new chapter, requires us to learn new things. And the fact that the world is constantly evolving, means if we stop learning, we stagnate.

I offer workshops though the years, because I feel it's worth sharing my experiences with other entrepreneurs, people who work and who want to work in the world I work in. 

So if the above excites you, it will be worth signing up for my workshop newsletter below. As soon as a new course or workshop is annouced, I'll let you know.

This is a 3 days intense course and limited to 10 people per workshop. This workshop is a good idea for people who want to build a strong photographic business and brand.  

This workshops is a combination of the last 18 years of experience, packaged in a 3 days, where I share everything I've learned in building a photography business and brand. This workshop is very intimate and a great 'time out of real life', where you can rethink, rework and reprogram your mind about building a business. You'll be challenged and inspired to focus on what you need to change and develop to improve your photography business and take it to the level you desire it to be.

I will cover hands on photographic topics, as well as the business-behind-the-photography and how to make it work for you!
