Thank you for your interest in our two day Spencer+Matt+Katie workshop in Minneapolis!

Day One is full of lots of teaching and and a bit of shooting.  On Day Two we take everything from Day One and we work with you to apply it to YOUR life and business with lots of one-on-one time and specific help where you need it.

That’s what makes this workshop different.

Over the two days you will get the hands-on practical help you need to improve YOUR photography and business. We’ll be there to help you, side-by-side. There will be heaps of time for Q&A and lots of one-on-one time to address the individual challenges you’re facing with your photography and business.

The smaller group (only 20 attendees) enables us to be really flexible with what we teach. Weddings are our primary focus but what we teach is relevant to both wedding and portrait photographers. Family portraits were our bread and butter for years, and Spencer does heaps of engagement sessions, so portrait photographers will get a lot out of what we teach as well.

Three photographers! One awesome workshop!

Day One Topics and Activities:
– How we shoot and interact with our clients (live shoot in the afternoon with real couples) – including Matt & Katie’s posing formula/recipe/system for consistent and creative portraits – plus plenty of time for you to shoot as well

– Practical ways to STAND OUT in a competitive and saturated market
– Your Business is a Chain – how to improve each and every link

Day Two Practical Hands-on Activities:
Day Two is all about taking everything we teach on Day One and helping you to apply it all to YOUR life and business. We will give you practical advice and suggestions that are specific to your photography and your business. Then we’ll all work together with you to make the necessary changes.
