Seven Secrets to a Successful Styled Shoot

Have you ever wished you could expand your portfolio with more images that complement your brand and would attract your ideal client? Or have you dreamed of your work being published, of growing your audience, or of building relationships with vendors you admire? Or perhaps just having a fun, creative place to experiment with new techniques? Coordinating a Styled Shoot could be the key to unlocking those ambitions!

Over the past few years Styled Shoots have become increasingly popular, and have also created some controversy in the realm of professional photographers. But when done right, this type of collaboration can be very beneficial to everyone involved!

Join Nikki as she guides you through the entire process, from planning to publication, and she’ll get you started on your very own successful Styled Shoot! You’ll leave this workshop knowing how to create your own mood board, a list of 100+ publications open to submissions, tips for recruiting a vendor team, and knowledge that you can apply towards your future & previous client work as well.
