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 19 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 reasonably known brands, like The Pretty Blog and my latest Meintjes&Co).
With each experience and very risk I took, I learned a lot about myself, business in general, brand building, marketing, content creation, social media, the online space 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 chapter in our lives will require us to learn new things. And in a world that is constantly evolving we'll stagnate if we stop learning.
Every year I offer workshops to share my experiences with other photographers and entrepreneurs, in the hope to help them grow their companies into entities that they can thrive in and get there way quicker than I did.
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 announced, I'll be notified.
What others say
Christine Meintjes Signature Experience
(Next one July 2019)
This is a three days intense course and limited to 10 people per workshop. This workshop is a good fit for people who want to build a strong photographic business and brand.
This workshops is a combination of everything I've learned the past 19 years, packaged in conversation sessions. During the three days, I will share everything I've learned in building a successful 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 photographic business. You'll be challenged and inspired to focus on what you need to change and develop to improve your 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!
My workshop will take you to a place where you are excited to move to new heights. If you want a quick fix, you should probably skip this one. But if you're ready to dig deep, get to know yourself, be honest and work really hard at your brand, this experience is for you.

- My story and what I've learned
- Who are you and how do you turn that into a brand
- How to market yourself to the right client
- Social media + marketing tips
