ways to learn
This month, come watch Rachel at her favorite location for family photos! Focusing on how to ensure your clients’ faces are lit while backlighting during golden light, along with showing you how she interacts with and poses her clients!
Then, follow Mel Win of MOK.A Photographie through the jungle of Guadeloupe for a maternity session. You’ll get to see how she creates strong connections with the environment using her unique depth of field methods. Finally, you’ll step inside her studio to see how she styles her maternity in-studio sessions.
After watching Mel's maternity video you'll want to be sure not to miss Sherry-lynne photography's teaching over newborn sibling posing! Sherry will break down her process working with siblings under 2, then a session with two kiddos and lastly portraits with an older sibling. Sherry-lynne not only teaches her methods on sibling posing but also her wrapping and lighting techniques. This hour long video is a MUST see!
On the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, we’ll drop a new video that will cover a number of topics, past videos have included: newborn, family, mini-sessions, lighting (studio and natural), maternity, beach sessions, setting up your business, editing, sitter sessions and so much more! And months with extra Mondays? That means bonus content!
The first video will be our guest feature of the month and will stay up for thirty days to all Collective members. During this time you'll be able to ask the guest questions in our exclusive Facebook group! Once the 30 days are up the guest feature will be retired into our vault and a new guest feature video will be released!
On the 3rd Monday of every month you'll get a fresh video from Rachel herself! These videos never expire as long as you have your Collective Membership and cover all types of sessions and editing!
Easy login mobile access so you can watch anywhere any time! Catch up on the latest video while in the pick up line or at the dentist office waiting room. Never waste time that could grow your business!
I'm Rachel your regular monthly teacher! I live in the good old heart of Indianapolis with my husband, Nick and our little trio of children, Brynn, Nicholas and Josie. I'm always cold, nearly always barefoot, passionate about newborn safety, oversized t-shirts and helping others. I hate cancer, working out and cucumbers (but pickles are cool).
In 2007, I was a stay at home mom who had a knack for using my Konica Minolta camera to take photos of my two (now 3) young children. That hobby slowly bloomed into a small photography business and I took up my first ever client via Craigslist in the spring of 2008. Ten years later, my passion to help other photographers turn hobbies into businesses and businesses into successful careers has been the driving force in creating the industry’s top source of online education.
