ES 002 : Infusing creativity and storytelling into your photography with Rafal Bojar

Rafal is a Polish photographer who tells stories in a way that few others do – His art is not just found in what happens inside his camera or post-production, but in every little step of the storytelling journey from research to curation. I met Rafal teaching at a workshop 3 years ago. But more than a fellow teacher, he also filmed and photographed my own elopement. He even came out to Florida to include our boys in the telling of the day, though they weren't able to be with us in Azores. Rafal creates amazing and emotive storytelling work [...]

What are you dreaming about?

Hi friends, Noella here. I haven’t had the chance to meet most of you yet so to make a long romantic story short, I met Twyla 3 years ago. It was serendipitous. Love at first sight you might even say. Her talent, soft voice and long hair caught my attention and my messy hair, coffee stained t shirt and the whispered words “split testing” must have caught hers.  I jumped into her business as a helping hand, here to rescue her, clean up her inbox and get some blog posts up on the website. What she and I both didn’t [...]

Serving as a Marketing Strategy

Recently I launched my editing course, Embracing the Storm and as part of that launch we decided to throw in a bonus, the bonus was a 1 hour mastermind on marketing.

I was trying to figure out if I had one big piece of advice that I could give to another photographer that would really take their calendars from lackluster to booked solid. Of course, I have all sorts of little nuggets of [...]

Digital Packages vs Products

Your story is probably similar to mine. A hobby of photography turned career while I figured things out as I went from editing flows to learning what to charge. It was a trial and error process that has led me to where I am now. Like most, I started photographing clients and handing over galleries so they could pick their favorite images and get them printed at their local print shop or big box printer. The idea of offering limited galleries and prints was foreign to me and it was only as I kept growing my knowledge in this industry [...]
