Unstuck Yourself! CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

With JACKI BRUNIQUEL

Discover your Creative Power!

“Everyone is a photographer these days! Give someone a phone and an Instagram account and the next thing you know they’re shooting weddings and portraits and calling themselves a pro”

It can be disheartening. I hear you! You can either beat yourself up about it or stand out in an over saturated market! Because the truth is, it doesn’t really matter what anyone else is doing.

IT ONLY MATTERS WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

Deep down, I know you know that! And yet you still find yourself scrolling through Instagram and torturing yourself about the fact that you could do better. It’s just too easy to compare yourself to everyone else’s show reel and get down on yourself.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE!

Even the top photographers in the world suffer with self-doubt, but the difference is that they feel the fear and do it anyway!

Creativity Takes Courage!

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

YOU'RE

  • Feeling like you need a new perspective

  • Playing it safe and you’re bored of the routine.

  • Following trends just for the sake of it.

  • Tired of your work but scared to put yourself out there, in fact you’ve forgotten who “YOU” is.

  • Feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by being a photographer instead of feeling excited and motivated.

YOU

  • Would love to make work that is more “you” but you don’t know where to start.

  • Don’t know how to find the clients who will pay you for work that you want to make.

  • Feel like you need to shoot like everyone else in order to get work.

  • Get really anxious when you’re faced with tricky lighting situations or ugly locations.

  • Really want to put your prices up but you’re feeling too afraid to do so.

  • Perhaps you don’t even really have your own style. You’re just shooting like everyone else because you think its what you need to do.

What if I showed you a new way of seeing?

I know you’re aching to feel inspired and fired up about your photography again!

I know you just need Your Creative Spark

nutured and ignited

I know you know that you need to stand out in this over saturated industry and I want to give you the confidence to do so.

I know you want to feel like

I've got this!

I also want you to know, you’re not the only one that goes through the creative doldrums.

You're not alone!

But you need to do the work and use the tools to get out of this slump so you can find your creative heart again.

Let's get you back to that Happy Space!

Here’s what some of my past workshop attendees have had to say...

So here's a little about me!

When I first started out as a wedding photographer 10 years ago the plan was to use wedding photography to fund my Fine Art career, and then the wedding photography took off so quickly that I found myself working 80 hours a week! I had absolutely no idea how to run a business or how to manage my workflow. In those days there weren’t nifty workshops to attend and business coaching wasn’t a done thing! I soldiered on until I eventually landed up in hospital with adrenal burn-out Nowadays my prices for wedding photography are double that of a good wedding photographer here in South Africa because I would rather shoot less and give my clients what it takes to create a bespoke set of images.

Some Fun Facts about me:

  • I've completed a Degree in Fine Art and a Diploma in Photography

  • Assisting some incredible photographers taught me to see light in a whole new way.

  • I've photographed hundreds of weddings and portrait sessions and have happy clients that span the globe!

  • I've won a number of international and local photography awards.

  • I'm on various lists recording the top wedding photographers in the world.

  • I've spoken at various photography expos, conferences and events all over South Africa.

  • I love teaching what I know to photographers and seeing people grow and thrive.

  • I spoke at the Fearless Photographers conference in Germany. The first South African to do so!

Do I think I have made it and am the bee’s knees? No, not at all. I am learning and growing every single day. I still push myself at every shoot to create something new!

"I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU TO FEEL INSPIRED AGAIN. WHEN YOU LEARN FROM ME YOU WILL BE GAINING ACCESS TO ALL MY YEARS OF EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, MISTAKES AND MILESTONES."

VIEW MY PAST WORKSHOPS BELOW

Up till now, I have run this workshop over a day, but after interviewing a number of my past attendees I have decided to run the course over two days. I give you a wack load of training and information and I want to make sure that you absorb it all so that you can implement it into your own shooting. You will be receiving a ton of practical tricks and tips which I will demonstrate, and then you will be practicing these whilst on the workshop with me so that they stick in your brain!

WARNING: THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP WHERE THERE WILL BE A STYLED WEDDING SHOOT INVOLVED, AND YOU WILL LEARN TO BE A JACKI BRUNIQUEL CLONE!
