Editing in ACR & PS

Take your images to the next level!

I believe in being a “well rounded” artist...which means I know how to use the tools provided to me to make the best of any situation. Photoshop is a tool that can make your images look “next level” good!  However, it’s not a tool that can be self-taught easily... -that’s where I come in- I have 2 years of photoshop training and 13 years experience implementing PS in my business. My photoshop class is a 2 hours class over zoom, we will discuss your portfolio and edit your images using my presets. You will also be added to my private mentoring group  and sent a link of editing videos for further questions and education! I will also help you make a custom preset and custom editing videos for future reference!

I believe in learning "hands-on" 

During my small group mentoring you will watch me and then be able to practice on the models also!  The first 1-2 hours is discussion through the provided guide, then a 2 hour model shoot and finally another optional 1 hour discussion. 

I keep my group mentoring small, so you don't get lost in the masses!

Family, Senior, Lifestyle, Wedding, Couple

I announce each type on facebook. Model shoot prices vary.

TESTIMONIALS

 "I am a self taught photographer so I knew what I wanted my images to look like but what I struggled with was the how. How do I get MY images to look like the images I had in my mind. The struggle was real and so was the frustration. I bought countless courses and watched more YouTube videos than anyone ever should. I joined Facebook groups and bought presets hoping that they were the answers to all the questions I faced. Then I took Missie's workshop and all the pieces started to slide together perfectly. During the workshop she touches on everything from camera settings and shooting styles to styling and editing a session to marketing and branding, I could keep going... I loved the workshop because it was hands on and face to face. I have bought a lot of online courses and have read a lot of ebooks but for me, nothing compares to hands on and face to face action. Missie's positive and funny personality is infectious, she makes you feel completely comfortable and creates a safe learning environment. She is confident in her work and herself and that right there is what makes her a great photographer and teacher. Then there's the added bonus of the Facebook group! It is seriously a lifeline for me, there has not been one question that has gone unanswered by her, not one and I have asked a lot of them! ;)  We have an amazing group we are all there for support, pep talks and to cheer each other on. I seriously don't know where I would be right now if I hadn't taken the workshop, probably still floundering along trying to find myself and my style in the sea of amazing and talented photographers. It is hands down the best money I have spent for myself and my business period."

“Missie is AMAZING! This was the best thing I ever did for myself and my photography. I found Missie and loved her artwork and when she offered her first mentoring session I knew I needed to be a part of it. Missie offers so much of herself after the workshop. I now have a group of photographers I can come to with questions or advice, it is truly amazing to be a part of this group” -Donna

"In a half day workshop Missie was able to cover so many helpful topics! She has definitely helped me connect the dots and make my work more fluent in editing and during sessions. Her knowledge of photography and readiness to help as a mentor is amazing. If I had not decided to sign up for her workshop it would have taken years to get where I have in just a few months. Thank you Missie!!"

 

-Hillary 

"Missie is a terrific teacher and leader. She knows exactly who she is and has found a way to stand out in a crowd. And like so many of my favorite photographers, she gave of herself unselfishly and for that I am eternally grateful. We crammed a lot into six hours and it was worth every penny and flight connection. Continuing education is so important, regardless of your skill level. I encourage anyone in photography to workshop in person as often as you can. It’s truly a valuable experience.

I’m not sure I’ve completely isolated what makes me unique, but after this past weekend I’m reenergized to keep digging. Thanks Missie! xoxoxox"

-Tracy

"Signing up for Missie's photography seminar is one of the best decisions I could have made to help my business. I had no idea what to expect going into it, I just loved her work and knew I could learn a lot from her. Missie was fun, friendly, engaging, encouraging and I came away feeling like she wanted me to succeed as much as I did. Not only was the class invaluable but the Facebook page has been a huge source of help and encouragement in furthering my business." 

-Katie

“This has been one of the best investments for my business I have done. I was not very confident with my business and I am not more confident. I never thought my business would take off like it did. Not to mention the access you have to Missie and all the others she has mentored is amazing in our little group”

-Kayla

-Hillary 

“Without a doubt, THE best investment for my photography business I have ever made. Not only for the actual workshop (which was absolutely incredible), but for Missie’s continued guidance afterwards. She is always willing to be open and transparent with her knowledge and experience. Don’t hesitate, just do it!”

-Trina

-Abbey

“This is such a good investment, as a newbie photographer my confidence was lacking and doing a small group workshop with Missie helped tremendously and was so fun!! Also, being able to be in the private group where advice is shared and helpful tips are added has continued to help me as I grow!”
