Charlie & Bria’s Blogger Bootcamp

The path to successful blogging and branding ourselves hasn’t been the easiest route. We’ve gone through many trials and tribulations, confusion, moments of disparity, and self-doubt. However, through tons of research and sharing our experiences of what works and what doesn’t, we’ve successfully managed to leave our jobs and rely on ourselves to reign in full-time income! With our help, you can too!

You're tired of not fully comprehending the basics of photography and are tired of shelling out your hard earned cash for a photographer.

You’ve googled and watched several tutorials online but are still confused on how to properly memorize important features such as the Exposure Triangle and need a live person to break down your questions and give you practical experience on the spot. YouTube is the go-to but isn’t practical for those rare scenarios when your camera doesn’t work as expected. You followed what the tutorial said verbatim but still don’t see similar results.

When we first started, we had troubles comprehending the basics too. Many a time, we’ve struggled and didn’t have a mentor, a forum, or the slightest clue on what to do. Now we’ve figured out a way to break down what seems difficult to the very basics to help you develop a new skill set confidently and faster.

Between us, do you struggle with or want to learn:

  • how to grow your social media following organically?
  • the secrets of when to post and how to get more likes and reach a broader audience?
  • what the best platforms are and why to go with a specific platform over another?
  • how to brand yourself to begin to be taken seriously by brands?
  • how to pitch yourself to brands you love and begin to get paid by them?
  • & more?

Trust us, we get it.

 

When I first started blogging, I had way less than the number of followers I do now and never knew that I could receive free product from brands in exchange for posts let alone being compensated for it! When I began to take it more seriously, I was a depressed software engineer, working for a company who didn’t appreciate nor value my worth. Being confined within four walls to a desk made me realize I was a prisoner to my own life. It dawned on me when I realized how much vacation time I had per year. I wanted to travel whenever for however long I wanted and still get paid. It was then that I made that transition into yielding my future by my terms.

For Bria, she loved being in front of the camera and began modeling at 16. She started her YouTube Channel in 2013 but eventually put it on the back burner. She started it back up in 2015 and by 2017, her online presence grew rapidly and she began to earn enough income from YouTube, thus causing her to feel overwhelmed and unhappy working her full-time job in customer service. On a vacation to LA that summer, she gained clarity of her next career move. She too realized that being confined to a desk was not something she wanted to do any longer and put her two weeks in as soon as she returned. Now Bria is fulfilling her dream, doing what she’s most passionate about, discovering her destiny each day.

Now, between the two of us, we’ve organically gained over 37,000 followers and counting from January to December of 2017. Even with the new Instagram algorithm, our Instagram engagement in likes have increased by 275% within the same timeframe, and we both work solely for ourselves within a few short months of parting with our previous jobs.

Success Stories

“Charlie & Dre’s Photography Workshop for Beginners was by far the most informative ever! The workshop included the basic function of several cameras, equipment, do’s and don’ts for social media and how to reach out to brands for profit. The workshop also included a step by step workbook to reference for future use. Definitely, a must attend!”

“Before Charlie and Dre’s Photography Blogger BootCamp, I didn’t even own a camera other than my iPhone. Their course gave me the confidence and understanding to pursue what was initially a passion, but now photography is my main source of income and it literally pays my rent! Charlie is my entrepreneurial inspiration and I would recommend this course for anyone willing to invest in their own future.”

Giving y’all one last opportunity to catch these e-courses before (in the words of @jbellzz_) the holy trinity of temptation is over 😂 
Working with brands requires strategy and tact. How are you going to approach them? What are you going to say to get them to respond to you? You got the connect. Now what you do you say in the email to get more than just free stuff? How do you get PAID and be paid your worth? 
How do you land brand partnerships that keep money in your pockets for at least half the year? What goes in your media kit? Do you even know what a media kit is and why it’s important? Do you know why you need to negotiate vs accepting whatever they offer? And what does net -60 even mean anyway? When will you be getting paid exactly? And what’s usage rights and why should that double what I charge?

All these questions and more are answered in the e-courses.

DM me the word “CYBER” right now and I’ll send you the exclusive link with code to get your e-courses today ONLY for up to 60% off, all in the name of Cyber Monday.

You have 12 hours and only 50 ppl can use this code before it expires
