Photography + Writing + Marketing + Travel Blogging
Being an entrepreneur is no longer about a single marketable skill; rather, the most successful business people embody a series of traits. With this workshop aimed at creatives of all types, you’ll learn how to be a one-person powerhouse by honing your writing panache and telling compelling stories through words, photos and social media. Whether you wish to grow your photography business, launch a writing career, up your marketing prowess or simply break free from the mold of a traditional business, you’ll walk away from this workshop with new tools to begin cracking the code of freelancing.
Who it’s for: creative entrepreneurs. If you're a photographer, a travel blogger or a wedding planner—or run another type of creative business—photography, copywriting and marketing are skills that you need to conquer to be successful. We’ve designed this program specifically for inspired artists who want to be inspiring entrepreneurs.
Join us: Kristin Sweeting (photographer, business owner, mama) + Kristin Luna (travel blogger, journalist, social media marketer) will show you how to take your photography, writing, and business know-how to the next level during a one-week work/play session in the enchanting surrounds of Lisbon, Portugal.
Our goal for this retreat is to give you the tools to take a clear-eyed, holistic methodology to your business plan—one that will stand the test of time. We’ll touch upon all facets of running a successful creative business: storytelling, negotiating, tracking your finances, being your own publicist and using social media to find your tribe (and your clients).
Every morning, we'll have several breakout workshops from which to choose, so you can tailor your curriculum to what you need right now. If you're a photographer, we'll have advanced photography and film photography classes; if you're not a photographer, we'll have a basics photography class (learn to use your camera better, even if it's an iPhone!). Kristin Luna, who runs an award-winning travel blog and writes for National Geographic Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Southern Living, Parade and many others, will teach you how to write to draw in clients, enhance your blog and grow an online following. We'll also have business classes, optional afternoon excursions, photo walks, a styled travel-inspired editorial shoot and other activities. Nights are on your own to explore the area!
Accommodations are in the capital city of Portugal, so it’s recommended to fly in and out of Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS). You are responsible for your own flights and travel insurance, including cancellation insurance. You're welcome to sell your ticket if plans change before our trip, but we cannot offer refunds.
