What It Looks Like
Adventure & Story is designed do be an education-forward workshop. We love being inspired, but if only offer inspiration and not tools for growth, then we've missed the mark. We want to deliver content that is hands-on and practical. We've curated the workshop content down over the past few workshops to try and deliver the best of every world. We'll start in the morning and go late into the night. This is no-holds barred–we'll share openly about how we find the right people, how we book destination weddings, how to tell a great story, and how to craft an incredible client experience. This is the workshop we wish we had taken when we first started and we really hope you'll join us.
01. Branding for the Right Clients
Working with inspiring people is one of the most incredible parts of this job. But how do you find like-minded, creative people to collaborate with? We're going to talk about branding your business for the right clients and how to stay true to your vision.
02. Successful Storytelling
It can be difficult to tell a successful story that is concise, elegant, and straightforward. We're going to share what this looks like to chase simple elegance and how to cut out the extra noise.
03. Adventure Session - Live Shoot
We will head out on the open road and explore some of the countryside and actually shoot photographs with a real couple. It will be hands-on—we will talk about how we pose a couple and how to integrate the concept of story into your actual shoot. We'll be shooting outdoors in in nature, exactly like we would shoot anywhere else.
You'll get a chance to do your own thing, see your own poses, and make the shoot carry your own voice. Shoot how you shoot. We will spend about three to five hours exploring and taking photos in awesome locations around our workshop location.
05. SEO, Marketing, and Destination Weddings
Destination weddings are all the rage these days. This session is going to go in-depth with the nitty-gritty of Destination weddings, both the good and the bad. We’ll talk about what matters in SEO, how you can use the workshop shoot to boost SEO and how to get it seen by other people and clients. We’ll talk about how to make sure google picks up your content and we’ll talk about how to get your work in front of bride’s looking for destination weddings.
06. The Client Experience
In addition to photographs, you leave behind an experience for clients--for better or for worse. We're going to go in depth about creating a client experience from start to finish as well as share some of our delivery methods and what we do to make our own client experiences unique and thoughtful.
06. Q&A and Wrap
We're going to stay late to answer your questions. Whatever is on the table, we'll answer it. Stick around with us as late as you'd like and we'll round-table it up and have a discussion with everyone about their business, what works, what we can change, and help build up the photographer community.
