The 2016 Ultimate Money-Making Photography Workshop
Join our experts for three power-packed days in Palm Springs, CA and walk away with all the skills you need to create pictures that sell for $200-$2000…
If you can snap a simple photograph … you have what it takes!
In just three days this spring in sunny, Palm Springs, CA, you’ll get everything you need to gain the confidence, power and prestige of turning your photographs into a financially valuable skill. One that earns you a lifetime of travel and fun.
If you can take simple pictures like these …
You could easily …
- Travel to places you’ve only dreamed of … and let your photo royalties foot the bill
- Turn a hard-drive full of images (currently gathering dust on your computer) into spare cash
- See your photos on the cover or inside pages of a glossy magazine
- Earn a couple hundred to a few thousand dollars for your vacation and hometown photographs
- Build a steady stream of passive income from your photographs that will pay your bills or fund your retirement
- And more.
If you have a camera and a sense of adventure … If you love taking pictures and can learn a few secrets that will make your images stand out to photo buyers …
Then you have what it takes to turn your images into photos picked up by magazines, newspapers, online stock agencies, and photo buyers around the world.
All you need do is give it a try.
You Can Do This!
Even if you’ve only ever taken
snapshots of family and friends …
You’ll be surprised how easy and flexible it can be to turn photography into a rewarding income… once you know a few tricks of the trade.
If you’re looking for a full-time gig, you can treat it that way. Or this can easily be something you do on the side – on weekends or only when you travel.
Before Terry Robinson attended one of our live workshops a few years ago, he had sold a handful of images to family and friends for $25 to $50.
But when he got home, he immediately put to use the secrets and tricks he picked up at the event. In his spare time, he set up a photo shoot in his hometown (you don’t necessarily have to travel beyond your backyard to make this work) …
… and he made $275 on his first set of images.
Today, he “works” only part-time. When he wants extra spending money, he breaks out the camera and knows he can make $500-$1,000 in a single weekend.
He told us last year that his camera put an extra $10,000 into his bank account that year. And he’s not alone.
Patrick S. in Colorado isn’t a professional photographer either – though he always took photos on vacation and, like most parents, lots of his kids. One day, out at a nearby park with the family, he had his camera in tow and started taking a few shots … shots he then sold to an airline in-flight magazine (that is, the magazine that sits in the seat back pockets on a plane).
He was hooked. Everyplace is a destination for somebody, after all … and these photos were designed to entice vacationers to come to his hometown. The best part? The first collection of shots he sold earned him $450. And then he did it again to the tune of $800. And then again for $1,300!
And you’ve heard me talk about Danny Warren before.
Danny is now the proud father of a beautiful baby girl. He has a full-time job as an information technology specialist. Photography is just a hobby for Danny. And since time isn’t something he has a lot of (along with sleep and drool-free baby toys), Danny’s grateful that his income is coming from something he’s doing anyway – taking pictures.
His photos are in an online stock agency where they sell without any extra work on his part. It’s a passive income (enough to pay the mortgage on his new house) whether he’s outside taking more pictures, inside changing diapers, or hard at work as an information technology specialist.
Not one of these folks had any formal training as a photographer. They simply learned a few tricks behind creating a good photograph and who to sell it to … and next thing you know, they’d turned a fun photo hobby into a viable income stream. An income they can take with them anywhere in the world – whether they do it full-time, part-time, or even just on vacation.
It Doesn’t Take Special Equipment or Years of Experience.
In fact, if you can snap simple photographs like these, you can do it …
Get Paid to Have FUN!
If you’d like to set your own hours … travel when you please … wake up every morning loving what you do, then you absolutely have to join us at this year’s event.
You’re not alone. And the folks who have joined us in the past will tell you they’re happier, healthier, and more successful because they did.
There’s something very rewarding about seeing your photos in a magazine. And something very cool about walking into Bed Bath & Beyond or another department store and seeing your photo in a picture frame on the shelf.
I’m telling you …
I’ve literally stood next to a photo of me on the shelf at Bed Bath & Beyond, taken by professional stock photographer Shelly Perry whom you’ll meet in Palm Springs, and just waited for someone to pass by so I could point out that it’s me inside the picture frame.
And my grandmother is as proud as punch, too. She found a picture of me at Walgreens in Florida while shopping with a friend. “That’s my granddaughter,” she told her friend. And together they bought every frame on the shelf!
What if that were your photo?
We’ll Hand you Everything you Need to Launch Your Photographer’s Dream Life
Our presenters will reveal their “tricks of the trade” to take more saleable images. There’s no doubt – getting paid to take pictures no matter where you are is a great lifestyle. And when you pick up these skills, you’ll have them for life.
Take just three days to join us in sunny Palm Springs, and you’ll get the details you need on where to sell travel images, including stock photos, editorial, and fine art.
Not only that, but you’ll also learn how to score free stuff and enjoy perks along the way – things like free stays and access to places only photographers are usually allowed.
There is no substitute for the hands-on experience you’ll gain from our team of professional photographers when you join us in person. You’ll get …
Expanded sessions on the all-so-important fundamentals; equipment, light, composition…
- A chance to practice your photography skills on the ground with our expert guides there to answer questions and make sure you’re on the right path.
- Marketing tips for selling your photos to a dozen or more different markets including magazines, newspapers, websites, online stock agencies, local businesses, hotels, fine art, and more.
- Camera manipulation tricks to make your images appear sharper and more professional.
- Composition tips for removing power lines and unwanted clutter from your travel photographs.
- Details on how to get free stuff with your photos – hotel stays, museum tickets, park and show passes, free drinks, and more.
- Specifics on who to contact at magazines and newspapers to get your photos in front of the right person.
Easy to follow templates for creating short, simple travel articles to go with your photos…and increase your income.
Everything you ever wanted to know about model releases; plus how to approach people for photos, pose them, and more…
Practical advice on using social media to your advantage. Don’t worry, we’ll make it clear and easy to follow even if this is not “your thing”.
A stress-free approach to the “business” stuff…what forms to use, copyright, protecting your rights…
And not only will you learn these tricks and secrets from the pros, you’ll get a chance to try them yourself, too.
We’ve learned over the years that sitting behind a desk and learning how to do something is completely different from getting up and actually doing it. That’s why you’ll spend at least half a day practicing what you learn.
And you’ll get feedback on your work before you leave so there’s no guesswork. You’ll know what it takes and you’ll have proof that you can do it. That’s what this whole thing is about, really.
And that’s why this year we are going to devote even more time to your photo reviews. You’ll get a whole new level of personal mentoring… one that would cost a small fortune were you to pay for it anywhere outside this workshop.
All you need to do is come with an interest in photography – no experience necessary, just a digital camera in hand – and in three days this April, we’ll show you exactly what you need to know to turn photos and videos of your next vacation … your own hometown … and even your pets … into a fast, fun, easy income stream… for life.
In your spare time. Again, no experience necessary.

“This workshop changed my life — or at least the direction it was going in. My biggest fear was dying before I actually had a chance to live. You gave me hope, confidence and skills all at the same time. I’ve been to Ireland, Washington D.C. and just last month, Fiji, thanks to these events. I’m, of course, doing all the “hard” work of taking photos. But you opened my eyes to the possibilities and I’m forever grateful.”
— Theresa St John
“I never thought I’d be a photographer. I was actually more interested in writing than I was photography. Now look, my last print just sold for $1,500 and I’m having so much fun with it. I keep telling everyone: Just try it. You’ll never know if you like it unless you try it.”
— Wayne Hoover
