ROCK WHAT YOU'VE GOT photography business workshop

I needn't have worried. I stressed, and lay awake at night, for nothing.

"Empowering" - Andreana

My first ever ROCK WHAT YOU'VE GOT photography workshop was on Sunday, and the day went off without a hitch. The television didn't fall off the table, my presentation worked, there was enough food for everyone, and I remember to speak slowly to people could understand me (well, most of the time).

"Helpful, insightful, inspiring" - Glenn Hair

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect group of people to share my first workshop with. They were beyond awesome, and really helped me to relax and enjoy the day with them. It felt like a conversation, which is exactly what I wanted it to be.

'Meaghan, you are a bundle of energy and information. Thank you' - Sara Taylor


Look! People smiling! I was excited when I saw this shot because it's evidence that for at least a millisecond I was somewhat entertaining.

The workshop was totally a group effort, and I couldn't have done it with out:
*Lyndel at The Loft where the workshop was held. All that glorious light, and the opportunity to do some creative dance if we so desired.
*Carol at Noble Foods. We were totally spoilt.
*MJ from Something Special. Her cupcakes really do rock the house.
*The team at Press Here for all their help putting my books together, and not rolling their eyes when I asked silly questions.
*Sarah Bowen for helping me set up and keep the day running smoothly. And putting the kettle on.
*Lauren Bent for these great photos from the day.
*Amba for looking after the children all day so I could spend the day talking.
*Miles and Ryan for putting in a brief, but extremely cute, appearance.

I'm really looking forward to seeing where all these wonderful people take their photography careers. They are all bursting with talent and enthusiasm, and I have absolutely no doubt that they will go on to do some pretty amazing things.

I'm 100% humbled by the response, and exhilarated from the day.

And because it seems the workshop wasn't so bad after all, I'll be announcing more this week. Sound like a plan?
Sign up to the newsletter at the bottom of my blog and facebook for the dates to appear later in the week. I'll also pop them here too.

From all reports (well one anyway) your first business workshop went off with like a hit! Well done (although everyone else knew you'd be great!). Now I'm even MORE disappointed I wasn't there!
