the next creative experience
will be in
los angeles, california
2-6th of october 2019
AT THE ARTERY
Here’s a glimpse of what it’s all about
The Creative Experience is either 2 or 5 days (you choose, we have two options for you!) with 5 professional coaches to explore creativity so you can get much more out of your photography, your lighting, your post-production and all the areas that are keeping you from creating more money, more fun and finding what works for you.
Discover and develop what it is that makes you so unique that you could actually get more work, charge much more for your pictures and not have to compete with anyone ever again!
During The Creative Experience we will be playing with tons of Profoto equipment, Phase One cameras and Tether Tools both indoors and on location with a full team of models, hair and make-up artists, stylists and assistants. If you take part in the 5-day option you will have your own Phase One XF with lenses to create your own pictures!
And as a participant of The Creative Experience you will also receive some huge benefits even AFTER the event! You will receive our mentorship until the next Creative Experience! That means that we are here for you, almost whenever you require our input and support, with any questions that may arise regarding your business and your creative life. You will be able to call us on Skype, by Phone, Whatsapp, Messenger or book a Zoom call with any of us and for sessions up to 10 minutes at a time you will not be charged! We are providing mentorship with those previous participants that require our guidance and what we notice is an incredible amount of change in their lives and careers, which is one of the main driving forces for us to keep creating The Creative Experience events and bring them around the world, to create a greater, healthier and more fun creative community at large.*

THE CREATIVE EXPERIENCE STARTED AS A CONVERSATION OF
What if we could find a way to help every creative grow past our wildest expectations? What would that look like and how can we bring it to life?
How can we take our 80 years of collective experience and share that with people in a way that will enable them to be their best selves?
We realized we had the ability to not only teach people everything we knew about photography, lighting, marketing, and business, but we wanted to change the way they thought about themselves, their goals, their personal hurdles, their creative blocks, and everything that is stopping them from getting to the next stage in business and in their creative life.
We want to bring together a group of passionate people who share the same goal of bettering themselves and who really want to push their abilities and potential in their work. Sometimes you don't know what is holding you back and you may not even see what talents you have yet to explore, and this experience is the catalyst for that change.
We all have a completely different background, styles of photography, and approaches to business and marketing, but our commonality is that we’ve all made careers out of what we love and we’ve been through a lot of issues to get there. We want to show people what’s possible.
Hence, The Creative Experience was born. What started out as a true intensive masterclass stemming from a huge array of talents, came together and became much more.

community grow in ways that challenge people’s ideas of what’s possible.

what people are saying
A few words from our past attendees -
“I think the Creative Experience is one of the best investments you can make to level up your work as a photographer.”
- Ane Cathrine Buck, Norway
“Most importantly for me is that, besides from the technical things I learned, I really got an inspiring energy that I will bring home with me and in to my future work.”
- Magnus Contzen, Germany
“I learned a lot of technical things, like how to use light, optimising my retouching workflow etc which has been great but what I have really enjoyed is being pushed over the edge personally as well as creatively.”
- Nanna Ferslev Andersen, Denmark
“My expectations of this class was strictly the technical aspects of shooting, editing, styling, posing, etc, which it had but it’s been so much more that I didn’t even think was possible.”
- Sarah Rocca Vento, USA
“While I honestly cannot recall what exactly led me to find this, I can say that I believe it was exactly what I needed at this very moment in my journey of art and photography. It was truly refreshing to meet such a wonderful group of selfless people, ready and eager to give not just instruction and advice, but pure positive energy to those around them. Their energy was infectious and rapidly spread to the rest of the group of photographers, and soon everyone was helping everyone with complete and utter abandon of all pretense and predisposition. Eleven countries of artists who let down their barriers and became just people--a full team--ready to help one another at any moment.”
- James Lavish, USA
“There’s so much I’ve learned these 3 days and I know that what I’ve gained will definitely make a difference in my photography, my business and even in my personal life.”
- Nikith Nath, UAE
“What I loved the most about this experience was that it was not just about photography, lighting setups and retouching, although all of that was included. It was super motivational and it gave me a huge confidence boost which was exactly what I needed right now to take the leap and really make the effort to be the photographer I really want to be.”
- Sarah-Lee Merheb, Lebanon
“I had no clue what to expect, I didn’t know it was going to be different. I thought we would just learn lighting techniques and all other technicalities. But it turned out to be so much more and it gave me the encouragement that I needed at this stage in the development of my photography.”
- Tarja Ruuska, UAE
“My takeaways from this experience is much more confidence, more motivation and I’m definitely raising my prices now!”
- Hamad AlAinati, Kuwait
