the imago vita (round 2) workshop is here!

Here are a few behind the scenes snapshots from our last workshop.

I am so humbled and honored that my first group of attendants were so amazing and gracious. They had some really sweet things to say:

"The Imago Vita workshop was well worth the time and money spent to attend. The information that Shannon shared with us will help me make huge strides not only in my shooting abilities, but also with my business ideas and strategies. For me, the most important thing that I walked away with from the workshop was confidence. I’ve lacked in that area since I began this photography journey, and it was nice to hear from other attendees that I wasn’t the only one. One of the highlights of the day (aside from the amazing food), was getting out there and doing a photo shoot with real models, and it was a huge help to have Shannon coach us along and take time to stop and give suggestions. I have already started to see a difference in my pictures from using what I learned on that shoot! Overall, the whole day was jam-packed with invaluable information that has changed the way I view my photography and has given me a renewed passion to pursue it seriously as more than just a hobby. Without a doubt, you need to attend this workshop."

"I loved this workshop. Shannon makes her business ethics, practices, and workflow available, as well as shooting techniques and helpful tips regarding equipment and what to have in your bag v. what to rent. I walked away with a new (and needed) confidence in my own style based on her critique and suggestions, as well as a more clearly defined direction in marketing practices, materials, and building awesome relationships with clients, fellow photographers, and vendors. The model shoot was a huge learning experience for me in how to keep talking to your clients and making them feel more comfortable and playful, as well as posing and moving through some shot sequences in a way that was logical but left lots of room to be creative. My favorite thing, though, was seeing that Shannon has not only found her niche, which we all should do, but that she also has struck a good balance between working your business financially, relationally, and keeping family a priority as well; these were lessons to apply immediately. Shannon rocked it out!"

"Shannon’s workshop was a wonderful experience for me. I learned so much, not only from her teaching, but also from watching her “in action” in our photo shoot. The setting made me feel special, and Shannon shared “secrets” she’s learned from her experience in the photography world. Her honesty and sincerity as well as her ambition and wealth of knowledge she shared with us is something that I am truly thankful for."

"The workshop was great for me since I am just now really starting to do wedding photography. Talking with you and asking questions really helps me feel more comfortable about being able to better serve my clients and myself. It’s very nice to be able to spend the day with someone who is successful and doesn’t mind sharing their knowledge in a competitive industry. The workshop itself, venue, models, hair & make-up, food was awesome. If you ever offered another workshop for the next level I would definitely attend. You truly are an awesome person and photographer. Thank you so much for everything!"

"Shannon’s workshop was informative, encouraging, and enlightening. Not only was I encouraged as a photographer, but as a person. She uses her talented photography to bless the lives of those around her. I walked away learning new techniques, more confident about my skills, and recharged."
