& special guest

CARISSA DAVIS

“After 9 years in the industry, it was overdue that I finally find “my people”. After a long-time dream of shooting out west in the desert/Joshua Tree, and after admiring Jolene’s work, I knew that this workshop/retreat was exactly what I needed. A community of creatives to share life with, a refresh and new light cast onto my business, and to learn how to better show “me” in my work. That’s exactly what Spark was to me. It gave me opportunities, enlightenment, and motivation. There is so much peace in my heart and excitement for my business this year. Jolene is a kindred spirit, and her wisdom and laid-back approach is exactly what I needed in this workshop. Not a grueling schedule or overly planned event, but it allowed us to connect and learn with one another at the pace we all needed that day. I am forever grateful for this experience… My heart is full.”

JOLENE’S TOPICS

  • Posing - Editorialize your work by adding motion and emotion to your images.

  • Pricing and Sales - Learn to strategize your pricing to get the average you need to meet your goals. I will take you through how I doubled my sales average in one year.

  • Storytelling - I am a firm believer that our clients are so much more than hair, makeup and wardrobe. Learn my process to create imagery that makes you FEEL something.

  • Lighting - Shooting sun flare and full sun.

  • What’s holding you back? - Yep, we’re going to go there. Get ready to dig deep and figure out what you need to do to get the heck out of your own way so you can be successful!

 
 

 “Spark was absolutely amazing! I had such a great time getting to know fellow attendees who I can now gladly call my friends. Jolene really opened up her heart and shared tips and tricks that are going to drastically change the way I run my business. I can’t thank her enough for that! 


I am so happy to have attended the first Spark workshop in Joshua Tree, and can’t wait to see how I grow not only as a person but as a photographer because of it!”

PALM SPRINGS

Sunday’s shoot, led by Carissa will be in the iconic city of Palm Springs. Carissa’s bright and bold style will lend itself perfectly to the Palm lined streets and mid century modern meca that is this amazing place.

CARISSSA’S TOPICS

Let's start from the ground up!

Client communication - From first inquiry through the final interaction.

Branding - Learn the importance of branding and how to brand your business so you stand out in the crowd.

Editing - I’ll take you through my workflow start to finish.

Marketing - Learn how I am booked up a full year in advance!

Senior Rep Teams - Learn how my team has boosted my senior market and now runs itself!

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

The ideal attendee is someone who wants to take their business to the next level and 'find the spark’ - both in their work and within.  Attendees should have a general working knowledge of their camera and settings with the ability to shoot in manual.  

Do you look at your work and feel like something is missing?  Do you sometimes feel like you're just going through the motions with your sessions.  Are you bored with your work?  In a rut?  

We've been there.  

Our goal for this workshop, in addition to providing actionable business items, is for the attendees to leave with a better understanding as to what may be holding them back from the success and fulfillment they desire from their photography.

Spark is an intimate workshop (no more than 10 attendees).
