Upcoming Seminars and Workshops …

We’ve been sharing our knowledge of photography, business and client service for over a decade. From close to home to far-away places, teaching is a passion that’s blessed us by not only taking us places, but by creating many wonderful friendships along the way. After taking a self-assigned year-long sabbatical, we’re refreshed and excited to announce the following worldwide seminars and workshops.
