ESTES PARK, COLORADO // JULY 10-13TH
OWN IT is more than a workshop. It’s a community. It’s an experience. It’s a family. We get real real.
When you attend an OWN IT workshop, you are family. You will photograph wonderful people, learn about how to run a business that works for YOU, and be a part of an experience that is all about owning what you have.
YOU HAVE THE STUFF THAT THE WORLD NEEDS, THE KICKASS CREATIVITY & SOUL THAT FUELS YOUR PASSION. IT'S TIME TO OWN IT.
no one can do what you do as well as you can. AND PARAPHRASING WHAT THE GREAT PHILOSOPHER AMY POEHLER SAID, "GOOD FOR THEM! NOT FOR ME."
ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Abbey wears the yoga pants, will easily talk about dogs for over an hour and will most likely greet you in the morning with an extremely loud and over the top GOODMORNING!!!!! She lives in a cute home in West Michigan with her (brand new) husband Jake and her dog #mccoypuppy. When she’s not editing and watching Friday Night Lights reruns on Netflix (Texas Forever!) she can be found at a yoga studio, hanging at the beach or hitting up any and all coffee shops and happy hour specials. Abbey sometimes wishes she was still a camp counselor and thrives on building supportive, real-talk and sometimes quirky relationships. On top of photographing weddings, seniors and fearless (boudoir) shoots throughout the US - Abbey also owns an online store called The Amiga Shop - bringing beach vibes to girls all around. Abbey CANNOT wait to help you learn to run your business like a pro, chameleon to your clients in order to relate to them better and make a living doing what you love.
Ellie is all about that adventuring, bold, deep + wide lifestyle. She lives in Oklahoma where, yes, the wind DOES indeed come sweeping down the plains. She photographs weddings and families all over the world and loves to hear people talk about what they are passionate about. She's got a big thing for fish tacos and love stories. Not together. Well, actually. Together would be pretty great. She loves making people feel comfortable and she'll probably share a little too much about herself with you. She recently launched her coaching business which focuses on educating young people in building lifestyles and businesses that they love. Ellie is pumped to teach about how failure can be a good thing, creating a consistent and cohesive brand, and focusing your business on your clients and not other photographers.
Wyn brings the good vibes, big hugs and the subpar but very energetic dance moves. Wyn truly believes that this career is SO worth it and is better with friends and a community at your side. You’ll instantly feel like a friend around him and he'll say he loves you very frequently- and really will mean it. On top of all that, Wyn loves twizzlers, has given a TED talk, runs a non-profit he co-founded called C'mon Team!, teaches photography at the University of Nebraska and travels around the states and world taking photos for seniors, weddings and commercial clients. With Own It, Wyn speaks on portraits, client interaction (making your clients feel comfortable and tap into their personality) and how to turn your uniqueness into a brand!
