“to gather together our thoughts and collectively, come together to raise industry standards, collaborate with intention and create beauty in an authentic manner”

Over one day you will be inspired to create beauty with purpose and authentic meaning whilst learning to look at things in a different light and feel rejuvenated after connecting with like minded artists and fellow photographers.

This workshop is the first of its kind on the East Coast of Canada, and will have a very practical focus; re-engaging compositional skills, teaching you how hone in on your marketing tactics, finding your ideal client and how to shoot with intention and for publication. Our purpose is to help you reach your full potential and gain your own voice in an ever changing and competitive market.

It will provide you with the tools to take your business to the next level, provide you with exceptional images for your portfolio; to help find your personal style and to tailor it in the direction that’s right for you and your lifestyle. On top of all of this, you will make life long connections with other industry professionals, learn to tell your story and understand the process of shooting for publication. 

Suitable for both film & digital photographers with a little experience under their belts, we look forward to having you join us for this one day retreat and experience an unforgettable day of creative opportunities, breathtaking beauty, kinship and laughter.
This workshop is limited to attendees to ensure it is intimate and provide you with dedicated 1-2-1 support and unique photographic opportunities that showcase our beautiful province.

“Jacquie is a gem! As a mentor she is warm and encouraging. She is an open book, generously sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience on all things business and photography related. She is incredibly thorough and detailed, creating a tailor-made learning and action plan geared towards your own needs and interests. She is so helpful when it comes to goal-setting and leading you through the necessary steps to accomplish those goals in a timely manner. She gives you just the right amount of push to motivate you to move forward with your business, without ever leading you to feel overwhelmed or intimidated. I honestly believe I accomplished more for my business in a few weeks working with Jacquie than I would have in months or possibly even years on my own. I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know her and would highly recommend her mentorship program to anyone at any point in their photography career!”
