What Photographers and Haiti Have in Common

March 27. 2015

ECCASchool_Small10

As many of you know, giving back is something that’s very important to us, and something we’ve actively done for years. As photographers, we have a unique tool that allows us to give back in ways that a lot of people can’t – by taking pictures.

There’s lots of ways you can do this, whether it’s by taking pictures of local rescue animals for their adoption profiles so they can find their forever homes faster, volunteering your time at a women’s shelter to take pictures of families without the abuser in them, or by doing something like we did and leading photo tours to Cambodia and donating proceeds to the local school, there’s lots we can do.

One of our fellow international photographers, Jamie Delaine of Jamie Delaine Photography and her husband Randy, have come up with a really creative way to give back.

Here’s a bit about their story here:

And a bit more about their project and the community they want to help here:

And that’s where the idea for The School Sessions was born.

If you’re not available for a session on the 12th, that’s no problem – you can donate your fee for a session done before that date as well.

To read more and donate to The School Sessions, check out their website here. You can also follow their progress on social media here: Facebook / Instagram / Twitter

We love seeing photographers really come together like this to use their talents to make a difference in the world. If you have an opportunity to donate, we’d love to hear about it in the comments!

If now just isn’t the right time – don’t worry. We hope you enjoyed checking out some of the amazing things Jamie and Randy have been up to :)

JULY/AUGUST WORKSHOPS // REGISTRATIONS OPEN!

April 17. 2014

You know it. We know it. There are more photographers than ever and it’s more difficult to stand out from the crowd.

Sadly, the odds aren’t in your favour. But with our help, they can be.

Over 8 years ago we said goodbye to our day jobs to pursue this crazy photography adventure. There’s no way either of us could have imagined the things we’d do in that time, the places we’d visit, and the fun we’d have along the way.

As passionate as we are about photography, we’re equally passionate about providing others with the tools they need to make their hopes and dreams a reality.

Nearly 300 photographers have attended our workshops in either Canada, USA, Australia or New Zealand. Here’s just a small sample of the feedback we get.

“It was the best money I have spent on my career in over 20 years.” ~ Kerin

“This workshop gave me the kind of motivation that I’ve never experienced or felt before even at the age of 41. You’ve made the jigsaw puzzle that is running and growing your own business make sense and for a newbie like me, that information is invaluable.” ~ Mark

“I’ve done a lot of courses and although I’ve walked away inspired from each of them, but I have to say this one actually changed me.” ~ Nada

I’ve never attended a workshop that was so informative and truly gives you a set of tools to apply to your own business in such a structured way. ~ Mandy

In July and August this year, we’re hitting the road again for another workshop tour of Australia! On this tour we’ll visit Melbourne, Sunshine Coast, Mackay and Perth.

Teaching and holding workshops isn’t something we take lightly. Not at all. It’s why we waited so long to start doing workshops. With over 8 years full-time now, we’ve actually experienced the ups and downs of running a photography business.

We’ve got the experience and the knowledge you need, but more importantly we have the wisdom to apply it to YOUR unique situation and circumstances. We also have a lot of fun over the 3 days! :)

Our mission is to empower you to run a successful photography business that gives you the time and money to live the life you want.

Whether you photograph weddings, newborns, families, glamour, boudoir or even pets … if you’re saying any of the following, our workshop is for you.

– What’s the most effective way to market my business?
– Why aren’t I getting more enquiries?
– I’m getting some enquiries, but why aren’t I booking them?
– I’m struggling to raise my prices
– I wish I could attract the type of clients that I’d really love to photograph.
– I’d really like to learn to interact better with clients on photo-shoots.
– Surely it’s not meant to be this hard!
– I’m losing bookings to cheaper photographers.
– I’m stuck and I don’t know where to start.
– I’m spending more time in front of a computer than with my family.
– My business is doing ok, but I’d like to take it to the next level.
– I’m drowning in my business and I need someone to save me.
– I really need an inspiration and motivation boost!

If you have any questions or if you’re not sure this workshop is for you … just get in touch. We’re here to help.
