The Workshop

The Hello Storyteller Academy

Workshops are 2 weeks of hands-on learning and practice with live teaching by the instructor. We recommend that you make sure you have the time available to invest when purchasing a workshop to make sure that you get the most out of it that you can.

Some workshops are only available as live runs, like Off-Camera Flash 201 which only runs twice a year, and others are made available as self-run workshops outside of their live runs where you can study at your own pace as a download & go.
