It's nearly impossible to describe the experience I shared with the incredible group of women who attended The Academy in Dordogne, France. Words like amazing and wonderful don't quite encapsulate how I feel, nor do they adequately describe the memories I'll have for a lifetime. What I envisioned when I began planning my first workshop far surpassed what I expected and that belongs mostly in part to the wonderful attendees who gathered with me to learn about creative and editorial styling. Here's a few highlights from our time together in the French countryside and the new 2017 workshop dates for The Academy in Dordogne, France Available Now!
Over the years, there have been countless times I've been asked for advice about my career. Depending on where the person was on their own path, the questions would range from photography advice, blogging and brand image topics, to how I got started styling, and what it takes to work with magazines and major brands. I've realized there are so many creative people wanting to pursue their passion and learn to refine and improve their own body of work. I also noticed there weren't many offerings of teaching others creative and editorial styling. Most were geared towards the wedding or floral industry and not specifically on professional styling. So after a year of contemplating the idea of helping others learn the art of styling, I've created The Academy - A Creative and Editorial Styling Event.
