SENIOR PHotography workshop


The Evoke Workshop is a two day event that will take place in Oregon. Two intensive days loaded with content and hands-on teaching focused on every aspect of high school senior portrait photography. Topics covered include: posing, lighting, locations, marketing, branding, pricing, senior model programs and so much more! Gorgeous models, two photo shoots in beautiful locations and one inspiring event.

There are a million ways to run a senior photography business and I'm pretty sure I've tried them all. There was even a time when my business ran me, which I find to be a common issue among many photographers everywhere. That's not the way it has to be. I know from experience that you can build a thriving business and have a thriving family at the same time. To achieve balance, it's all about building a solid foundation for your business, creating boundaries and owning your schedule.

With over seven years of experience teaching workshops, offering mentoring for senior photographers and selling a multitude of educational products, I have worked with photographers in a variety of markets, all over the globe. I love nothing more than sharing my heart and passion for this industry and helping photographers define their style, unveil their ideal brand and client, tackling objective that they face and removing the nonsense that is dragging them down.

It's time to get real, get organized, get focused and get control. The Evoke Workshop is an event filled with inspiration, education and rejuvenation that will help you build the senior photography business of your dreams. We hope to see you this fall in Oregon for a workshop experience unlike any other!

"Holli is a wealth of information & I only wish we had more time to sit and chat- I could have picked her brain all day!"
~Chelsea taylor

"Holli taught so many tips that I will be using on my teen photography work. As I looked through the images, I could see exactly which ones I remembered to apply her coaching to, and which ones I didn’t!"
~Nadeen Flynn

"Not only is Holli incredibly knowledgeable but she also keeps it real and it's so refreshing! Day after day you hear from photographers that say if you aren’t doing it their way, you're doing it wrong or you won't be successful. Holli is not afraid to go against the pack and tell you to do what works best for you! Love her!"
