The Evoke Retreat with Holli True is weekend filled with fun, photography and new friendships. This two day workshop will cover everything that I have done to build a thriving senior photography business over the past 12 years. Topics covered include: posing, lighting, locations, marketing, branding, pricing and more. Every Evoke Retreat seat includes the meet & greet mixer on Friday evening to kick things off right, two full days of education and hands-on learning, a portfolio-building photo shoot in a breathtaking location, new headshots (photographed by Holli True), three nights lodging in the Evoke House and breakfast and lunch is provided on Saturday and Sunday.
Join us in Oregon this fall for a photography workshop dedicated to high school senior photography! We'll go over the blueprint of my business, leaving no stone unturned. We will also visit locations I frequently work in, taking full advantage of all of the beauty Oregon has to offer during our destination photo shoot at Smith Rock State Park with beautiful styled models on Day Two.
It's time to rejuvenate your senior photography business and get back to the heart of who you are and what you are all about. I am all about simplicity and it extends through every element of my business. From my session workflow and approach to location selection, posing and communication, to my marketing plan, pricing structure and post-processing edits. Simplicity is key and I am sharing my entire workflow and business with you.
we'll focus on the client experience, branding, marketing, pricing, websites, social media & more

Comfortable clothing and footwear. (This is a must!) We will be shooting on-location at Smith Rock. Bring footwear with closed-toes and good traction. I highly recommend that you dress in layers, jackets, sweatshirts, jeans, leggings, etc. Bring your preferred camera equipment, plenty of memory cards for all of the gorgeousness we'll be creating and a reflector, if you have one. If you'd like to edit at the PJ Editing Party, be sure to bring your laptop and card reader, too!
ARE THERE PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! We automatically divide registration into three equal payments (Single: $550 per payment | Roommate: $450 per payment). Upon registration, you will be prompted to pay a retainer, securing your seat at the Evoke Retreat. The retainer is NON-REFUNDABLE. You will be invoiced for the next two payments on August 5th and September 5th. If you wish to pay in full, please email us to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yes, transportation is not included in your registration. Past attendees have teamed up to share the cost and have rented a car together- I highly recommend this!
