THE PHOTOGRAPHIC EVENT OF THE YEAR
Don’t miss this if you want to take your photography to a brand new level!
Our next event is going to be in Los Angeles (USA)
the first week of october 2019!
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!
Scroll down to find out more about who your coaches are, what we will be doing during The Creative Experience and how you can participate.
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.

Photography changed her life when she picked up a camera and began a 365 project on Flickr. From that moment she was hooked by this medium that translates thoughts and imagination into tangible form.
Inspired by fairytales, nature and strong feminine characters Bella's pictures lift the veil of the overlooked and reminds us that there's magic in the most ordinary of spaces.
Bella work closely with all her clients, bringing on board her creative vision, high quality execution, and a can do attitude!

Amanda Anderson Belluso is the CEO, co-creator and co-owner of House of Belluso. With her experience in business and strategic planning her strength is to see the big picture and connect the dots that others might not see.
One of her favourite things to do is to ask questions, and not look for answers. She uses this in her coaching work to get her clients to know what they know and to find out what is actually true for them. She is always on the quest to create an even bigger life and she has the basic point of view that life should, and can, be fun all the time.

With his entrepreneurial and management skills and experience, as well as being deeply involved in the video productions of the company, Viktor creates and contributes to all of the endless possibilities that House of Belluso has. When the team is out travelling he is often behind the camera and much more, he also finds himself enjoying being in front of the camera too.
Constantly searching and asking for more, Viktor’s main focus has always been having a good time. If it’s not fun, it’s a waste of time! This point of view has led him to a life filled with joy and adventures.
