Submission for this workshop attendance is now closed. Thanks to all that applied. This is our first workshop where we are inviting guests into the studio and if all goes well, we will definitely consider more in the future!

Congrats to SLR Lounge Premium members Scott, Taiyyib, Vanessa & Diego, Angelica, Kristin, & Kevin on being selected as our studio audience!

We recently debuted How To Launch A Photography Business on CreativeLive that walked photographers through the first 12 weeks of building a photography business. We love that course as a foundation, but SLR Lounge Premium Members requested a series that provided more in-depth training and resources.

Introducing the Business Mastery Series taught right here at SLR Lounge Headquarters in Orange County, CA!  In this course, we are going to dive far beyond the first 12 weeks of running your business. The course will include in-depth case studies, templates for email communication, sales scripts, multiple marketing strategies, and much more.

The best case studies are ones that you all can relate to. So we are inviting 5 Premium members to be a part of our in-person workshop which will be filmed and placed onto SLR Lounge Premium.

We are looking for 5 Premium members that have grown thus far in their photography skill and are ready to launch any form of a portrait photography business. Hands-on business workshop intensives like this typically cost $4,000 to $5,000+ so be sure to throw your name into the hat! It will be well worth your week of time.  This workshop has the potential to change the course of your business.

Cost: Free! (Flights/hotel/transport not covered. Breakfast/Lunch will be provided)
