Something I value so much as a creative is a desire to share knowledge, teach others and uplift those around us. So often in the creative industry, it can feel as though we are isolated and expected to "learn the hard way," succeed, and... inevitably fail... all on our own. However, it doesn't have to be that way. I am forever grateful for the for the countless photographers, business owners, friends and family who pour into me on a daily basis with their knowledge, support, celebration, and shoulders to cry on. People who truly dedicate themselves to uplifting others are good, good people.
One of those good people is without a doubt Jasmine Star, and today I just want to say a massive thank you to someone I may have never "met" but feel like we're great friends! For the past 6 weeks I have been dedicating an hour of my day each weekday to joining photographers all over the world online for Jasmine Star's "The Complete Wedding Photographer Experience" workshop through CreativeLive. For those of you who may not know about CreativeLive, jump on over there as quickly as you possibly can! CreativeLive has impacted me as a photographer in so many ways through their amazing teaching, incredible access to experts, and generosity by sharing killer content to anyone who is interested. Endless growth is so important and CreativeLive's courses challenge and encourage me to gain more knowledge and pursue the business I dream of. I'm so grateful for that.
As the final day of Jasmine Star's 30-day wedding photography boot camp comes to a close, I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to learn from such a genuine and talented force in the industry. Throughout the 6 weeks, I found myself scribbling notes on napkins as I ate lunch, and frantically typing takeaways while diving into the nitty-gritty of owning, running and thriving in a photography business. Jasmine's contagious joy, unreal talent and genuine honesty has truly made an impact, and I'm so grateful for opportunities to continue learning like these! Not to mention, this course has made me realize that Jasmine is a total boss and has the most incredible wardrobe! More than anything, I truly feel like she's a "friend" in the industry dedicated to sharing her knowledge, struggles and joys. A huge thank you to Jasmine Star & the entire CreativeLive team that made this course possible! I can't wait for my next CreativeLive adventure!
