What is Wild & Unwritten and what will we gain from it?
Wild & Unwritten: A Workshop for the Adventurous was created with the concept in mind, that as photographers, we are capturing unwritten stories. Being able to tell stories through the images we create is something that we highly value. Just the same, we want Wild & Unwritten to be a milestone in your journey as an aspiring photographer— with moments full of learning, growth, and memories to help write your beginning, middle, or simply just inspire you to keep writing your own story and never give up. We are most inspired by this vast world in which we live in— so Wild & Unwritten has chosen two unique locations to be the centerpeice of our exploration + the main sources of our inspiration for the workshop. Alaska + Hawaii have two of the most unique yet vastly different terrains & weather, as well as being the two states that are, in a way, more mysteriously unexplored than the rest of the US. As well as being so vastly beautiful and different, they are also the two non-contiguous as well as the 49th and 50th states to make up the 50 United States! We also believe that by teaching as a team in a small intimate setting, we are able to offer hands on and one-on-one experience with an array of content which includes— marketing, shooting, editing, building relationships with your clients (and the impact this has), creating a brand with your business, ways to reach ideal clientele, how to stay on top of workflows, etc. Most of all, we will chat about ways to consistently be working to stay inspired and stand out as a business by focusing on who you are. We are so excited to continue hosting new Wild & Unwritten workshops every year and be part of your journey in either Alaska or Hawaii! The learning environment we will create along with the locations inspires us to no end, and we hope it does the same for you! HOWEVER, we decided to add a little pop up workshop to this years calendar, as seen below!!
IDAHO || Wild & Unwritten
We are so excited about the launch of this workshop in Idaho!! Idaho is home to the both of us now, and we want to share it with you! Full of it's ever-changing seasons, mountain ranges, dense forests, mountain lakes-- it's going to be a dream!!
We would love for you to join us this year in one of the best seasons in Idaho :)
ALL THE DETAILS!
WHO: Idaho will be an all girls workshop this time around!! (We have a women's & men's workshop launching soon on the Big Island for 2022!!)
There are limited spots available :)
WHERE: McCall, Idaho area
This workshop will be held outside of the cutest little lake town of McCall, Idaho. A destination spot for most visitors!! The area that we will be staying in is full of lakes, tall pines, mountain ranges, and some of the most stunning views that we can't wait for you to see. We will be staying at a private residence outside of the lake town that will accommodate all of us perfectly!!
October 4-7, 2021
We might be biased, but Autumn in the mountains is the BEST. The changing colors of the leaves, yellow glistening Aspen trees, crisp mountain air in the mornings and sunshine/breezy afternoons. We can't wait to sip morning coffee (or tea!) on the balcony with you all as the sunrises over the pine trees!! Due to the nature of Fall, just note that weather is ever-changing, and come prepared for whatever it may throw at us!! Typically the beginning of October in the mountains is mid-high 50's throughout the day!
TEACHING - Going over alllll the good stuff! We are completely open books!
Some of the topics will include: editing, workflow, pricing (we'll show you ours!), marketing, branding, all things business + taxes + accounting & all things shooting / bringing out that emotion in your couple / making them feel comfortable, goal setting + exceeding, and all of the tips for growing your business! ++ so much more!
ACCOMMODATION - Everyone will be staying at a private residence that is PLENTY big enough for all of us!! It's a 3 story home tucked back against the Tamarack Mountain Resort.
MEALS - breakfast, lunch, and dinner + snacks alllll day every day on Tuesday and Wednesday! (only dinner on the arrival night and breakfast on the departure date)
STYLED SHOOTS - We will have 4 styled shoots (2 each day!)! 2 engagement styled shoots and 2 elopement styled shoots total throughout the entirety of the workshop! We will be collaborating with some amazing florists + models + dress designers to make all of your adventurous couples photos come true. Emily Aitken from Emily Aitken Events and Katelyn from Two Hands Floral (two INCREDIBLE local artists) will be joining us to style the workshop! We can't wait for you to meet them!!
COVID PRECAUTIONS -
We know that the COVID-19 Pandemic is still ongoing! We want to create a safe and healthy space that allows us all to still learn and experience. We will be asking all attendees to arrive with a negative COVID test (with the test taken 72 hours prior to arrival), to minimize social contact along the way (the beauty of Idaho is from a lot of states, it might be more worth it to drive/carpool!!), as well as mask up when we are outside the household to maintain respect to other locals & visitors! More info on this to come as we get closer to October. These may be subject to change as well.
50% ($1250) due to reserve your spot or payment plans are available (ask us!) & the remaining balance due 1 month before the workshop start date! Deposit is non-refundable but is transferrable if you find someone to take your spot.
NOTE: We only take a limited number of attendees to keep the experience as real & intimate as possible! This is super important to us and Wild & Unwritten, as we want to get to know each of you personally as well as to create new + lasting friendships in the community!
*Upon application acceptance you will receive an email with all of the details on what to expect, how to get to the Airbnb, tips for gear & packing, as well as a Facebook group to get all of you chatting + coordinating as we inch closer to the date!!*
