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!
Kauai // January 21-24
Wild & Unwritten is taking us to the gorgeous island of Kauai in the state of Hawaii!! We are SO excited to adventure with our attendees in such an epic / unique location! We really wanted to choose locations that inspired us and may be less explored in the market in order to give you fresh and less saturated content + a chance to adventure somewhere you may not always get the opportunity to!
ALL THE DEETS!
WHO: for all the girl bosses looking for an adventure!
WHERE: Kauai, Hawaii // The garden island home to Waimea Canyon State Park and the most beautiful + mountainous Na Pali coast where we will be staying! A more remote + less populated island, which in our opinions, is the most beautiful island in Hawaii including trails that lead you to some of the most breathtaking views!
WHEN: January 21-24 // technically the off season of Hawaii! Still amazing temperatures + some chances for scattered showers off and on! So if you don't mind that (we sure don't!) then heck yes, let's adventure! Tropical rain typically is intermittent throughout the day anyways + think ocean + rainy shoot with a couple!? UM YESSS! We'll surely get plenty of sunshine, but we may have some rain too! Tropical rain is insanely relaxing & we aren't worried at all :)
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 in the Airbnb! We wanted everyone to be in the same place in order to get to know each and every person and keep the experience as intimate as possible. It is such a gorgeous house with an amazing view! See the link below for more information on the rad Airbnb!
MEALS - breakfast, lunch, and dinner + snacks alllll day every day (only dinner on the 21st and breakfast on the 24th).
STYLED SHOOTS - We will have 6 styled shoots (3 each day!)! 3-4 engagement styled shoots and 2-3 elopement styled shoots! We will be collaborating with some amazing florists + models + dress designers to make all of your adventurous couples photos come true. See the link below for more information on the types of locations we will be exploring and shooting!
50% due to reserve your spot & 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 will only be taking on 15 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!
