A three day workshop for photographers who desire to devElop and define their business.

Develop and define your true north

The Wild Within Us Workshop (WWUW) is built for current or aspiring professional photographers who are looking to become streamlined in their portrait work and business. 

As seasoned veterans of the industry, our expertise is to create an environment of professional development for the photographer who is comfortable with the technical side of shooting but wants to take their work and business to the next level.

Learn to manage your time efficiently, multiply your productivity, gain confidence in client interactions, woo your dream client and become a pro at articulating your brand.

We can not wait to learn and grow with you! 

Our saturated market demands a stand out brand. You can only achieve this by owning your True North. 

True North is your secure anchor in the storm of social media trends, it is the light house that guides you in the direction of your purpose.   

As Professor Bill George, from Harvard Business School says “ It is derived from your most deeply held beliefs, values, and the principles you lead by. It is your internal compass, unique to you, representing who you are at your deepest level.” 

Owning your True North creates space for connection, allowing your clients to feel like they know you, and they trust enough to be a part of their love story.

Heart behind WWUW

Ten years ago I came to a crossroads; do I stay in the safety net of job security, working to build someone else’s dream, or do I set out on my own journey to fulfill my purpose?

I knew I was not living up to my full potential. I was confident I could serve my dream client in a way no one else could. I had to allow the fire in my heart to grow bigger than the fear in my mind. 

Having little resources, no creative community and no idea how to run a successful business, I made the life-changing (and somewhat scary) decision to start my portrait business The Wild Within Us.

After 10 years of struggle, questions, fears, and uncertainty, I understand that sometimes, as entrepreneurs, we don’t even know where to start or what questions to ask. 

This workshop was created out of a deep desire to see people like me, like YOU, succeed in turning their passion into profit. The main purpose of this workshop is to help you develop and define your TRUE NORTH.

MORE ABOUT kate

Kate hope, founder of wwuw

hello, i'm kate! 

I have been teaching photography for 5 years now, shooting for over 10. I can honestly say that one of my greatest joys is sharing knowledge and creating an open community for growth rather than competition. As an educator and fellow lover of photography, I live for the those tangible “ah-ha” moments when the person I am teaching starts smiling from ear to ear, their eyes start to sparkle, their body language screams excitement and their energy permeates their surroundings. 

Not only am I proud to be a photographer and educator,  I am also extremely proud to be a  mom....  I am in love with my girl, Juniper Blue, a one year old Aussie. She's a dirt loving tomboy at heart, who chases me on my mountain bike, rides shotgun on my dirt bike and goes canyoneering and paddle boarding with me. She also shares a taste for life's finer things like cold coffee, pickles and blue Powerade. 

We are recently the proud owners of our first home on wheels, a 1988 Blue Bird bus, affectionately and temporarily called "Tumbleweed."  What do you think ?? Renovation photos to come!

Frequently asked questions

HOW MUCH PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED FOR THE WORKSHOP?

We are an inclusive group of creatives, ready to share our knowledge and can meet you where you are at in your photography journey. However, we want to make sure everyone shows up to the workshop with a basic understanding of how to use their cameras on manual and basic working knowledge of Lightroom. This will allow us to make the most out of time together. We also request positive attitudes, open hearts and the willingness to be vulnerable and welcome personal and business growth.  

WHAT CAMERA GEAR/EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO BRING? 

Required Equipment: 
Minimum of one DSLR or mirrorless Camera Body
Fixed 35 or 50 and/or Mid-range lens (24-70)
Recommended Telephoto (70-200)
Rain sleeve for camera and lens

CAN WE USE THE IMAGES WE TAKE DURING THE WORKSHOP FOR OUR PORTFOLIO?

We encourage you to use all of the images you capture for your portfolio, website and social media. Any photographs shared on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook must include “Taken at the Wild Within Us Workshop” and tagged with "@wildwithinusworkshop on Instagram.

IS ACCOMMODATION/TRAVEL COSTS INCLUDED IN THE COST OF THE WORKSHOP?

Although accommodations are fully covered, transportation and travel are you responsibility. 
We are covering the cost of accommodation, all food, water and snacks during the workshop. Alcohol is not provided but you are welcome to bring whatever you would like. Flights, car rental or any travel to & from the Workshop is not included, however, we will add you to a private Facebook group after booking to encourage carpooling/splitting cost of transportation with other attendees. 

HOW MANY ATTENDEES WILL THERE BE? 

There are a total of 5 spots available. We want to keep it small & intimate because we love having personal time with y’all! The mentor to attendee ratio is 1:5.  

DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT OPTIONS?

We have one payment option. We require a 50% retainer upon booking and remaining balance is due 15 days before the start of the workshop (unless otherwise agreed upon.) We only accept payments online, that can be made by credit card, debit card, or bank transfer. First you will receive an email invoice for the cost of the retainer, followed by an email invoice for the remaining balance.  There will be a grace period for payment of 3 days from original invoice delivery before your spot is re-opened for booking.

IS MY RETAINER REFUNDABLE?

We all know that life doesn’t always honor the plans we make, however, due to non-refundable payments on housing and catering, the retainers we collect are non-refundable unless you are able to fill your spot. If you do need to cancel and you are able to fill your spot 15 days before the start of the workshop, you will receive a full refund minus a $300 administration fee. If you cancel within 30 days of the start of the workshop a full refund minus the administration fee must be conditionally approved based upon your replacement for your spot. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE INSTRUCTORS CANCEL THE WORKSHOP?

If for any reason we would need to cancel the workshop, you will receive a full refund on the cost of the workshop. 

Trip interruption and cancellation insurance:

We strongly recommend taking out trip interruption and flight cancellation insurance. There are many companies that provide trip interruption or cancellation insurance. We also recommend medical travel insurance, to ensure you are covered for any health issues that occur abroad. Wild Within Us LLC cannot be responsible for any medical treatment, or cost associated with returning home. 

Here are several review sites. We recommend starting with the following sites which contain highly-rated companies:  

insuremytrip.com
10 TopTen Reviews
Consumers Advocate
There are certain companies that continually, year after year, make the top-ten list (in alphabetical order):

Allianz Global Assistance
CSA Travel Protection
Travelex
USI Travel Insurance Services
*In reviewing, make sure the company is a BBB Accredited business with an A+ rating. As of this update, all four companies above have the coveted A+ rating. Always get a quote and do not decide on price alone. Because selecting the right insurance for you can be confusing, we recommend speaking with an agent to understand the ins and outs of travel and/or travel medical insurance.

CODE OF CONDUCT

It is our highest priority that everyone feels safe and supported throughout our time together. If you are unable to act in a mature and respectful way, we reserve the right to ask you to leave. There will zero tolerance for drug usage during the workshop.
