29 - 30 - 01  ||  sep - oct 2023

I worked in advertising for six years then left everything to travel the world.

Knowing I couldn't go back to doing something that didn't make my heart sing,

I taught myself how to use a camera and committed every waking hour to learning how to get better at it.

I was obsessed. Still am. I had to make it work and I did.

Through a lot of hard work, a bit of bravery and as much training as I could get my hands on

I created a life that allows me to make money doing what I love every single day.

Because that's the aim of the game right?

This is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in a lovely group of like minded people.

Helping to build not only on your business foundations but also friendships and community.

Invest in yourself.

It's worth it.
