“I went into The BP Workshop thinking I knew what to expect, but I left with so much more. I got to meet and work alongside people who share the same love of photography as I do. Brittany hit everything on the list and then some, answering all of our burning questions…literally staying up until our eyes couldn’t stay open any longer! The styled shoot was of course the cherry on top. It’s where everything we learned came together, and we were able to put it into action. Being able to shoot alongside Brittany was simply amazing, and I’ve never been so happy with the outcome of my photos before. She really has a way of bringing out the ‘magic’ in her photos, and I felt like I was able to achieve that as well, (which I was so super excited about!). I love that Brittany keeps it real and doesn’t sugarcoat anything, yet you can feel the genuine and sincerity of what she says. You can tell she truly wants you to succeed and will be there to help you in any way. The knowledge, inspiration, and motivation I needed were things I couldn’t get anywhere except The BP Workshop. I walked away feeling confident to start what I wanted to do all along…be a photographer. This experience was definitely worth every mile traveled. If you’re even considering applying, just do it. You won’t be disappointed.”
“Attending the Brittany Photographs workshop is the best decision I ever made for my photography. When I attended her workshop, I was at a crossroads; I was unsure of the direction I was heading with my photography and lacked the confidence I needed to build any clientele or business. Brittany’s workshop not only gave me the knowledge to move forward, but it gave me the confidence to do so in my own unique way. Her very straightforward and honest approach with each of us made it possible for me to stop overanalyzing and just create art. And so I have done.”
