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!
Alaska // July 13-16, 2020
Wild & Unwritten is taking us back to the Alaskan wilderness in one of our all-time favorite locations!!! We are SO excited to make Alaska a forever-present part of Wild & Unwritten, as from the very beginning, we wanted to choose somewhere that inspired us and may be less explored in the market. This was in hopes to give our attendees fresh & less saturated content + a chance to adventure somewhere you may not always get the opportunity to!! We fell in love with the rugged, epic landscapes the minute we stepped on the Alaskan soil, and we can't wait to be back in this incredible state for the 3rd time!!
ALL THE DEETS!
WHO: for all the girl bosses looking for an adventure!
WHERE: Girdwood, Alaska // We are headed to one of our favorite spots in Alaska!! A small Alaskan mountain town that sits amongst lush forest and is surrounded by the peaks of the Chugach Mountain Range!! It's less than an hour drive from the city, you'll want to fly into Anchorage!
WHEN: July 13-16 // one of the best times to visit Alaska - amazing temperatures during the day & cool at night! It could rain though, it IS Alaska after all, so be prepared for any weather!
