Education: For Photographers


Whether you are running a full-time business, just wanting a better understanding of your camera, or somewhere in the middle, you're here for a reason:
You want to learn.
And there's always more to learn, always. I learn new things everyday. 
I truly LOVE connecting and sharing what I have learned over the years that I have been pursuing my passion for photography, and now, pursuing my passion to teach others.

It's truly frightening to not know if what you are doing is right, if it's working, or if there's a better way to do it. 

That's where I come in. 
I want to help you become more confident in yourself, your business, and the photos you take for your clients. 
I do this by taking time and talking with you one on one about what you feel you are struggling with, where you want to grow, and how to do so in a way that helps you find your personal voice.
 

ONE ON ONE MENTORING SESSIONS // $500
These include a real photoshoot for us both to shoot at, directed by me, followed by a coffee (or, preferably, a chips and queso) date!
During our shoot we will focus on posing and directing your clients and creating emotion in your imagery, making your clients feel comfortable in front of your camera, and helping you embrace your locations and lighting.
At our coffee date we can chat about business, pricing structure, and what you feel your struggles and strengths are and how to improve them! 
Ready to invest in yourself?
Let's do this!

SO CRAZY EXCITED to announce that Michael and I will be joining some of the coolest babes around to speak at The Safehouse Workshop next April in Idaho, and next May in Maine!
So inspired by The Babetown Collective and the community they are building based around acceptance, intimacy, and pushing your creative boundaries. I am beyond honored to share my experiences and speak with such an amazing group.
If you are looking for a workshop based around body positivity, inclusivity, expanding your business, brand, and creativity, you really should pop over and check this out. 

BEAR LAKE, IDAHO: APRIL 27-MAY 1
Michael will be sharing his infinite knowledge on Better Branding and Simple SEO- guys. This dude knows his stuff. If you are struggling to shift your business into a full blown brand, or if you are half as clueless as I was about SEO before I met him- he's the guy to talk to. My class will be geared directly at senior and portrait photographers. A class focused on bringing senior portraits to life and creating a unique, personalized experience. Breaking the mold and the boring perception on senior portraits, and ways to evoke emotion from a solo subject. I will also go through my entire senior process- from inquiry to designing and selling albums to your clients. 


SANDY POINT, MAINE: MAY 14-18
Michael will be dropping his same badass knowledge on branding and SEO, so if you can't make it out west here is your shot to get in on this goodness!
We will also be coaching a class on Making Your Own Magic- because let's be honest. Life isn't always mountain ranges and breathtaking landscapes. There's no greater skill than knowing how to make the most out of any location or lighting situation. We will also be touching on how to make your client's comfortable in front of your camera and create variety within your sessions.

SEO & MARKETING WITH MICHAEL KEE:

Taking a clumsy brand into a full blown business. 

We've all been there. You're pushing out work, you've got a website, you've got a decent following on Instagram, but you still aren't getting bookings. Or, even worse: You're getting bookings but they aren't the clients that you desire. You're working your butt off to keep your head above the water but somehow, it still doesn't feel like you're getting where you want to be.
(newsflash, we have ALL been there. You aren't alone.)
