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 AND THE BIG ISLAND || Wild & Unwritten
Wild & Unwritten is ISLAND HOPPING!! Taking us to not only one, but TWO gorgeous islands of Hawaii this next year! February 1-4, 2021-- we are headed back to our beloved Kauai!! The following week, February 8-11, 2021-- we are headed off to explore a new island to Wild and Unwritten, the Big Island!! We are SO excited to be offering two workshops in Hawaii next year, and back to back! We cannot wait to adventure with our attendees in both of these epic / unique locations, that we hold so close to our hearts for not only the scenery, but the people as well!
We would love for you to join us on one of these islands next year!! Read about all the details + what's included below, and keep scrolling for accommodation! :)
ALL THE DEETS!!
WHO: Kauai will be an all Girls workshop, as our previous workshops have been!! HOWEVER-- we are opening up The Big Island to Girls + Guys + All! We are so excited about this, and hope that you are too!! We have been wanting to incorporate all genders into a workshop, and the Big Island is the perfect place!
WHERE: Kauai, Hawaii , and The Big Island, Hawaii ||
KAUAI: The garden island home to Waimea Canyon State Park and the most beautiful + mountainous Na Pali Coast!! A more remote + less populated island, with so many hiking trails including trails that lead you to some of the most breathtaking views!
BIG ISLAND: The largest island of the Hawaiian Islands, with so many beautiful Volcanoes, lush Rainforests, and some of the most beautiful and clear beaches!
Kauai: February 1-4, 2021
Big Island: February 8-11, 2021
This is 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! For the Big Island (men + women), the house is broken up and provides easy accommodation for everyone!! 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. Both houses are amazing-- scroll above this and click on each island to see each house!
**Note that there may be some air mattresses! Straws will be drawn upon arrival to keep it as fair as possible!**
MEALS - breakfast, lunch, and dinner + snacks alllll day every day (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! We will be collaborating with some amazing florists + models + dress designers to make all of your adventurous couples photos come true.
50% ($1400) 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 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!
