“Life CHANGER! Attending a Lauren Fair Workshop was by far the BEST decision I made for not only my photography business, but also for myself. You can watch as many YouTube videos on photography as you want... but what it comes down to is actual real-life, hands-on experience in the photography world by someone that inspires you. That is exactly why I decided to attend a Lauren Fair Workshop. I walked away feeling like I could conquer all the DREAMS I had set for myself and I also walked away feeling so much more confident in myself. Lauren truly puts her heart and soul into her workshops leaving her attendees with an experience that you just can’t experience from anyone else in the industry. Lauren is one of the most humble, inspiring, kindest people I have ever met and she is someone you want to surround yourself with because she gives so much joy and love to everyone around her. Words can’t describe how fast my business transformed after attending the European Inspired Autumn Workshop. If you’re ready to take your business to the next level that you’ve always dreamed of, look no further, just attend one of Lauren’s workshops and I promise you will never be happier.”

“I recently attended the Lauren Fair Cairnwood Estate workshop, and am completely blown away at my experience! I have attended multiple workshops in the past and can say that this one has been the best hands down. Lauren and Tim are so caring and kind and the information they give is invaluable. They touched on every subject from email replies, websites, attracting the right clients, posing, pricing, film, and so much more! I cannot wait to implement everything I've learned. The classroom portion in itself was so worth it to me, but to top it all off we had the most insanely beautiful styled shoot afterward which is going to be such a beautiful addition to my portfolio. Lauren took us through each portion of the shoot and gave us information on her camera settings and how she directs her couples and it was awesome to see her in action! At the end of the day we were treated to a delicious candle-lit catered dinner where we got to converse and connect with her, Tim, and all of the other attendees. I am so happy and grateful that I attended her workshop and wish I could go to them all! If you are on the fence about attending a Lauren Fair workshop, my advice to you is to just do it! You won't be disappointed!"

"What an incredible and refreshing experience attending the Lauren Fair workshop. Lauren and her husband, Tim, were so welcoming and humble and were a complete open book for us to learn from. I loved the classroom portion where they taught us, but also showed us their actual work and process and help us completely understand. As a new film shooter, I had MANY questions, and they were always willing to answer with patience. My favorite part was the styled shoot. It was totally over the top with so much content to photograph. I love that this portfolio building experience had so many different options and I will have many new film images to showcase!"
Thank you for yesterday’s incredible workshop. You were both amazing! You provided so much useful information and insight. I am in the midst of redoing my website and so many of your topics were beyond useful and helped me solidify some areas where I was unsure.
The styled shoot was absolutely stunning and what photography dreams are made of!!! Your direction to the attendees was fantastic and really helped it not feel overwhelming by the number of shooters. Thank you again for your warmth, knowledge and impeccable sense of taste." ~Laura Rose Photography

If you're like me, 2020 has been a year of wishing for European travel to open back up to us again.
We've been carefully seeking out the most European-inspired locations this year in order to bring that beautiful charm to our fall workshop.
The incredibly luxurious, stunning Hotel Domestique, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains south of Asheville, NC and north of Greenville, SC, is reminiscent of a Tuscan auberge. With European courtyards and fountains, and incredible mountain views, our home away from home will inspire you with fresh mountain air and beautiful views in every direction.
We'll be working with a world-class team to bring stunning European editorial shoots to life. Bring your film or digital cameras - both are welcome!
We know there are many workshops out there, but we truly believe our community is something special.
If you're looking to break into the luxury or destination wedding markets, are feeling stuck in your current business, are unsure of how to reach the next level of clients - this workshop is for you.
More than just pretty shoots, our workshops are packed with game-changing techniques to elevate your brand and breathe life into your work. If you're looking for hard-hitting business tactics as well as breathtakingly beautiful editorial shoots, you've come to the right place! Our workshops are a warm and personal space to dive deeper into your dreams.
I'm not one for "fluff." If you are ready to head into the sure-to-be-crazy 2021 season equipped with tools to elevate your business, we'd be delighted to have you join us.
