-Leapfrog between wanting to charge loads for your work and feeling like no one will see the VALUE in what you do. 
-Feel trapped making just enough money but not creating work that sets your soul on fire. 
-Are overwhelmed with that feeling of animosity we’re all trying to escape by quitting our day job! 

Branding, branding, BRANDING is key to your success as an artist. It’s critical for connecting with your ideal clients and standing out in that relentlessly cited “saturated market”. 

Every business owner I’ve met was afraid they wouldn’t be able to stand out in a saturated market. 

But, guess what. 


The Forward Workshop focuses on marketing, branding, and client communication skills so you can reel in your dream client, say “good bye” to ghost inquiries, steer clear of nightmare clients, and, most importantly…

We’ve got to make sure your audience understands that. All you’ve gotta do is change your mindset. 

Sound like a plan?

AMAZE-BALLS, SEE YA THERE!

Focus on filling your soul and bank account instead of your calendar and burn out o-metre.

Luckily, you can learn to turn your business into a thriving one. 

No one does it like you do. No one has your unique skill set, personality, or style. 

"I recently attended The Forward Workshop hosted by Megan. It was such a great learning experience! I am fairly new to the photography industry and the day was packed full with information. From marketing, business development and amazing styled shoots, she didn't miss a beat! It was also great to connect with other photographers attending the workshop, lifelong connections were made and you leave feeling like you have a community to keep turning to. I would highly recommend to not only photographers just starting out, but those who have been in the industry for a while!"

"I recently attended The Forward Workshop hosted by Megan. All of the effort that Megan put into sharing her knowledge with us was incredible! Sharing the space with a group of photographers also experiencing the same challenges and frustrations was so eye opening and comforting. The workshop reminded me of why I started photography and has really motivated me to follow my dreams! Thanks again Megan, would definitely recommend"

"Instruction was very informative and presented really well. The styled shoots were a collaboration of amazingly talented local businesses and models. Location was amazing despite the weather. Not a detail was missed. From delicious treats, personalized gifts boxes and blankets to weather the cold. If you are in a creative rut. If you are struggling with your photography business. If you are wondering if it is possible to make a go at being a full time photographer, the Forward Workshop is for you! Megan will take you step by step through her story, branding, websites, social media, building clientele, prompting and poses and so much more. You will leave inspired, connected to other amazing creatives and believing you have what it takes!"

"Megan put a lot of thought into the whole workshop, from having a guild line to ensure everything was covered to having blankets for the attendees to stay warm during the workshop. She gave gifts that created contacts in the industry and was enthusiastic about teaching."
