DEFINING THE JOURNEY: Steps to Setting Powerful Goals

Class Description:

Another year has come and gone and as you prepare to tackle 2017, how clear are you on where you want to go? Designed as a practical workshop to help you pull all your learning from the retreat together, this session will lead you through a variety of exercises designed to help you get clear on what you want for 2017, and the steps to take you there. The journey is only good if you define it; turn your ideas into action and your wishes into reality by getting focused on what you want in 2017 and learn how to set powerful goals.

Live Shoot Description: Diving Into Underwater Photography

Underwater photography is fast becoming a popular medium, but shooting underwater is a challenge! This session is designed to provide an overview of underwater photography, from gear options, working with different light, safety considerations, preparing and working with clients and basic editing, followed by a live shoot! Bring any underwater gear you have available from a waterproof phone case all the way up to DSLR housing to try your hand. Note: Due to safety considerations, class size is limited.

Mentoring Options (Optional $200 Add On)

Jennifer would love to spend time with you to discuss any one of the following topics:

  • Portfolio Review – Looking to improve your work? Without meaningful feedback, it can be difficult to know what direction to grow in. Getting a portfolio review is a very easy way to improve your photography and help you develop. Taking a strengths-based approach, we will spend an hour reviewing your work, sharing constructive insights and making suggestions for improvements. (Note: pre-work is required to get the most out of this session)
  • Coaching – In a world full of easy access to the same information and in an industry which is has many different perspectives and advice to offer, it’s a challenge to get clear on what works for you and your business. In the end, the only true competitive advantage you have is you. Wouldn’t it be great to get some clarity about what works for you and your business? This one-hour session is designed to help you get clear on your thinking, your goals and your business. Be prepared to work! (Note: pre-work is required to get the most out of this session)
  • Mentoring – One hour where I open up about anything you are curious about or needing more help in. From underwater photography to creating intentional client relations, it’s an open session designed to help you get your questions answered, receive feedback, and mentoring on areas you are feeling stuck on.
