I have had the most amazing couple of days at a photography workshop learning better ways to run my business and my photography. Matt and Katie Photographers came all the way from Australia to share their wisdom and experience with 13 photographers in Victoria, the last stop on their North American tour. They are a genuine, fun, playful, crazy-in-love husband and wife team that run a wildly successful international wedding photography business based in their small home town of Toowoomba. Their model is that every part of your photography business is a chain – from your website, your client emails, your photography, your vision and dreams – each link needs to be strong for your business to work. They gave us heaps doable, practical exercises that will strengthen those links and get us to where we want to be. It was fantastic! I feel completely inspired and re-motivated to grow as a photographer, and as a person. I can’t wait to get started on my now massive to do list!
