15-16 May 2017 – Guest Speaker Fabrizia Costa
Out of the Box Business Workshop
"My photos are good, and I keep getting better, but I can't seem to find enough clients to keep my business going..."
"In my area there's too much competition, I have to keep my prices low otherwise I'll lose all my clients..."
"I don't know how to price my products or the best way to present my offers, I see what others are doing and it's all very confusing..."
"I don't even know if my photos are good enough to charge what I would like to charge... I feel I'm not quite there yet..."
"Everybody wants digital files... how can I sell anything else!"
Does any of this sound familiar?
Digital photography may have opened the door to many of us to follow our passion, but at the same times it's created a series of challenges that simply were not there in the age of film. And if you're experiencing any of the the situations described above... rest assured that you're not alone!
Whether you're starting up in business, or have been running it for years (or trying to find a way to leave your job and get it going!), there's always a time when you feel stuck on some things and can't quite break through to the next level. Maybe figuring out the best way to do your pricing, or set up your workflow. Or just knowing what to do next in order to be most effective and not waste time.
I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO TWO DAYS OF DEEP CHANGE
TWO DAYS of deep, intensive coaching on every aspect of the photography business, starting at whichever level you are right now. A lot of you are fantastic photographers, but you haven't got clients and you don't know why! And maybe you've attended lots of workshops, bought online courses, and joined endless Facebook groups, only to find conflicting information because everyone seems to be doing it differently... and in the end most of that doesn't work for you.
SO WHO IS THIS FOR?
Outside the Box is for driven, ambitious photographers who are ready to grow their business, get out of the competition rat-race and make a mark in this world through their skills, talents and passion.
We need to invest in ourselves if we want our business to thrive, and reach the goals we set in the shortest time and with the least amount of effort (and failures). You don't have to re-invent the wheel every time! That's why I decided to offer a full, intensive, 2-day experience specifically dedicated to portrait and wedding photographers, and I'm inviting Fabrizia Costa to be our guest speaker for the workshop . Are you ready to take a leap forward in your business? Then welcome aboard!
She’s a portrait and wedding photographer, but also specializes in coaching photographers to help them raise the level of their work and reach their full potential in every area of their lives.
In Italy she was behind the creation of the Toolbox Boot Camp, a three-day intensive workshop dedicated to photographers who want to change their work and their lives. She also offers a 1:1 Coaching Program for those who want to dig deeper and get further.
Her work is all about deep shifts in perspective, seeing things with new eyes, and thinking outside the box. Doing things differently from anyone else, and communicating that effectively, comes from looking deeply at ourselves and making changes as we grow to bring our business to where we want it.
You can join her in the Facebook group Outside the Box Evolution - English for videos and tutorials.
