WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

 
 

The Creative Experience is either 3 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!

TESTIMONIALS

“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

WHAT TO EXPECT

As The Creative Experience is a brand new experience of bringing together unique strengths in the field, we believe the common goal will be to push people past creative boundaries over the course of 3 to 5 days.

We will of course be talking about lighting, retouching, photography of different types, as well as using Phase One cameras and Profoto lighting, and all of that is only the very tip of the iceberg that we wish to discover with you, a mountain of creative possibilities that until now you have not even started to explore.

We want people to walk away inspired to see past their limitations, inspired to create. From what we’ve experienced in the past, we truly believe our main goal will be to change your life and empower you to make it as great as you truly desire. We want you to leave completely inspired from when you first came in. At the end, you’ll gain not only a newly found appreciation and understanding for all things photography, but a new set of friends and an outlook on life.

These are some of the things you will get from participating in the 5-day Creative Experience:

* Deeper knowledge and understanding of light and Light Shaping Tools.

    * Retouching techniques with Pratik Naik for a whole day.

    * Directing models

    * Communicating with your team.

    * Communicating with your clients.

    * Hands-on workshops with Andrea Belluso, Bella Kotak and Pratik Naik.

    * Photographic business coaching with Amanda A. Belluso

    * Exclusive use of Phase One Camera and lenses.

    * Tons of Profoto equipment.

    * Models, styling, hair and make-up and photo assistants at your disposal.

    * Seminars on empowering you to create a greater business and get more out of your photography.

    * Marketing and promoting yourself.

    * Seminars on being truly unique in your work and being seen.


The Creative Experience started as a conversation of "What if?"

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.

Take a look our first event and schedule below to get a small sense of how it went.
