Hope Taylor Education Update For Photographers

For Photographers


As the end of the summer quickly approaches, I have been wanting to share an educational update for all of my photographer and small biz friends!! Education opportunities for 2016 are starting to dwindle down to the last remaining 2016 dates and I also have an exciting workshop announcement to share!!! 🙂 So, I thought a blog post was in order to share about the educational opportunities left for 2016!

Business Intensives:

These sessions are my version of one-on-one mentoring!! Each session includes  includes 4 hours at my studio in downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia. This session includes 2 hours of in-depth Q+A, 2 hours of hands-on shooting with your choice of a senior or couple model as well as a notebook, brand new headshots, website critique, full workflow walk-through, new portfolio images from the shoot + being added to the Hope Taylor Q+A online community! There are now only THREE dates left for the entire year of 2016. Snag one of those HERE.

FREE Blog Education:

I wanted to list this here because I have set a goal for myself to blog LOTS more educational content for the remainder of this year!! Senior photography tips, wedding strategies, business advice and more…it will all be coming at you FREE on the blog, as always!! A little birdie also told me that there will be some more BIG education announcements towards the end of this year…but more on that later 🙂

And now for the big announcement…

There is a new workshop date!!! The third and FINAL Senior Photography Workshop for 2016 will be hosted on October 10th in downtown Fredericksburg, VA!!

Registation is now LIVE and a good chunk of seats are already gone to the mailing list members!!! Learn more and snag one of the remaining seats HERE! It’s your last chance to join me this year!!

And, as always, you can join the mailing list to be the first to hear about new workshop dates, receive early access to registration and all education announcements straight into your inbox!
