When I began my business, I had no idea what styled shoots were, why anyone would bother to do them, or who on earth would work for 'free'!! Fast forward to a very well planned and thought out styled shoot that I was asked to be part of, and I learned super quick exactly what the WHY was!!!
I believe that you need to surround yourself with a tribe of people who understand your vision, who get you and why you do the work you do, and from that, you are able to create a community of industry friends who are there to help build you up.
There is something to be said for using styled shoots as a means of building your event industry business.
I see a great benefit to investing into our own businesses, as well as those around us. I truly believe that by collaborating together, we lift each other up and continue to grow.
I aim to give you the experience of a true collaborative effort.
I believe that learning together, and learning from each other is the greatest service we can afford ourselves, in order to grow together as a community.
~ excerpt from our styled sessions tab ~
For me, styled shoots have been a way to build a community. Build up that super supportive tribe of industry friends who have become life friends as well!
I enjoy seeing the success of others in our industry! When they get a feature, or their images are shared over and over because they are so damn good!
I applaud those in our community who reach out and work together; who boost each
other up; who make a difference in the lives of others.
Keep it up friends...it only gets better from here!!!
