WAUSAU, WISCONSIN // WORKSHOP!







WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

This workshop is for wedding and portrait photographers who want to stand out in a saturated market and get more bookings, but don’t want to spend truckloads of money on marketing or advertising.

It’s also for photographers who want to give their business a kick in the butt for 2014!




WHAT MAKES THIS WORKSHOP DIFFERENT?

Don’t just take our word for it, scroll down to check out our testimonials to see what past attendees are saying πŸ™‚ Or click HERE to read all of them.

With 8 years in business now, we’ve actually experienced the ups and downs. 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.

Not only does our business help us to pay the bills and live a great life, it also puts us in the position to use our photography to help non-profits in Cambodia and Nepal.

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.

This 2-day photography and business workshop is all about taking everything we teach and helping you to apply it all to YOUR business and life.

To achieve the success you want, you don’t have to be a born sales-person or business-person or marketing guru. You don’t have to be a freakishly talented photographer either. And you don’t have to spend a bunch of money on advertising and marketing.

Everything we teach is do-able by any photographer. Our workshops are the ones we wish we could have done when we first started out. Gosh we would have saved so much time, money and heartache!

Matt is a teacher at heart as well as a problem-solving analytical thinker. Katie is the most genuine, non-business-y, non-sales-y person you’ll ever meet and she doesn’t have a single business bone in her body.

You’ll leave the workshop with a notebook full of ideas and a solid, practical step-by-step plan to make achievable improvements to your business – and it will set you up for a kick-ass 2014!

There will be time for Q&A and also time to address the individual challenges you’re facing with your photography and business.

The small group (only 15 attendees) enables us to be really flexible with what we teach and tailor it to each unique group.

TESTIMONIALS









ABOUT US!


We’ve been running successful photography businesses full-time for nearly 8 years now.

Since starting Matt and Katie Photographers we’ve shot around 40 weddings a year.

Our portrait business was founded on doing awesome sales without having to be sleazy salespeople. In one year Katie did $260,000 in family portraits without a single loss-leader promotion or voucher-free-shoot offer in a town with over 100 photographers.

We travel … a lot!

2010 – 2 months overseas.
2011 – 3 months overseas.
2012 – 4 months overseas.
2013 – 3 months overseas so far!

Our photography has taken us to many amazing places such as Thailand, England, Wales, France, Greece, Italy, Turkey, America, Canada and New Zealand. This past year more countries have been added to our ever growing list of destinations, including Nepal, Fiji and Cambodia.

We’ve spoken at conferences such as WPPI, the Nikon AIPP Event and Hair of the Dog. In the last 2 years over 200 photographers have attended our workshops in Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada.

In November 2013 we’re leading our first Photo Adventure tour to Cambodia, and we’re stoked to be speaking at WPPI again next year and also Canada Photo Convention.

Matt is a teacher at heart as well as a problem-solving analytical thinker. Katie is the most genuine, non-business-y, non-sales-y person you’ll ever meet and she doesn’t have a single business bone in her body.

Everything we teach is designed to give photographers like Katie all the tools and knowledge they need to achieve their goals and dreams.

It’s this mash-up of creativity, business, problem-solving and analytical thinking, plus our passion and skill for teaching that makes what we have to offer so unique.

Most of all, we very strongly believe in the power of photography and business to improve all of our lives. Gosh that sounds cheesy! πŸ™‚ But it’s the truth, and it’s why we teach and coach other photographers. Whether your goals and dreams are big or small … we will teach you how to use photography and business to reach them.

Teaching and business coaching isn’t something we take lightly. Not at all. With nearly 8 years in business now, we’ve actually experienced the ups and downs.

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.

The photography industry doesn’t need more rockstars, what it needs is more teachers.

As passionate as we are about photography, we’re even more passionate about helping other photographers reach their goals and dreams too!
