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 is obsessed with personality tests (ENFJ & Enneagram 1). She lives in a cute home in West Michigan with her husband Jake and her dog #mccoypuppy. 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 and fearless (boudoir) shoots - Abbey also co-hosts a Grey’s Anatomy podcast (seriously!) 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 grew up on the East Coast but moved to Oklahoma when she was 21. (You can ask about that story, it's a good one.) 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. She recently launched her coaching business which focuses on educating young people in building lifestyles and businesses that they love. For the OWN IT workshop, Ellie is pumped to talk 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! He cannot wait to help you get to where you want to be as a photographer and a business owner!
