Charlie & Dre’s Beginner Photography Workshop – EXPRESS Edition

The path to successful blogging and branding is not typically the easiest route. We’ve gone through many ups and downs, confusion, and self-doubt. However, through tons of research and sharing what works for one another, we’ve mastered that through great high-resolution photos, we’ve opened more doors for ourselves than most. We understand that in today’s world of modern technology and social media, high-resolution photos are a necessity to enhance your social media and get noticed faster. Through this workshop, we will break down to beginner/intermediate bloggers and aspiring photographers alike the intimidating parts of shooting and editing. We will also teach you the business side of reaching out to brands and leveraging your work for paid partnerships! If you are an aspiring photographer and blogger looking to take your content the next level, then this is for you!

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 shoot correctly?

 

  • how to organize your camera settings?

 

  • how to learn basic editing?

 

  • what the best tools to use are?

 

  • HANDS ON experience using a mirrorless or DSLR camera?

 

  • and more?

Trust us, we get it.

When I first started micro-blogging, my pictures were all poor-quality taken from an iPhone 4 back when Instagram first had those borders that newcomers thought were extra cool – which were so not! After looking at the aesthetic of some of the most popular travel bloggers and photographers, I realized I wanted my Instagram account to have a certain look and feel to it when visited. 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 based on the overall look! When I began to take shooting and posting high-resolution photos seriously, I almost immediately began to see a huge increase in the number of followers I gained, the number of likes I received, and the number of brands interested in collaborating with me for both Influencer work and photography.

As for Dre, he was always the person in high school with a camera documenting our high school experience. Even then, he always had an eye for taking pictures for Myspace, Crushspot, and the early stages of Facebook with his point and shoot camera and iPhone. After taking a film photography course as an elective, his love for photography began to grow and it is there where learned the basics of how to use a manual camera and also develop an eye. A few more photography courses later, he began to take what he learned and apply it. As he grew, the bulk of what he’s learned was from on the job experiences and Youtube University. Now, he has growing clientele in Detroit and also travels nationally to work with other clients as well.

Charlie & Dre's Photography Workshop will teach you:

  • how to spruce up your social media with high-resolution photos

 

  • the editing basics

 

  • HANDS ON experience on how to use your camera and shoot your peers

 

  • the different kinds of equipment you should use

 

  • and much more, that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

This is actually something you can do with a little bit of help.

You just need some direction, which is where we step in.

“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.”

“Charlie and Dre’s photography workshop was everything! I went in with some knowledge of photography and left knowing pretty much everything one should know about basic photography. I’m so glad I invested in myself! They were both very attentive and detailed. I left their class taking photos 10 times better than when I first arrived. I will always be grateful for all of the skills I learned at this workshop. I now have my own photography business called, Lauren Taylor Photography!”

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
