from practice to portfolioFrom Practice to Portfolio is the ultimate guide to take you from simply shooting to rack up experience to suddenly making each of those shoots count and pay you back with stronger confidence, a more meaningful body of work, and most of all–future clients who love your images.

No more resentment from shooting for free. No more feeling overwhelmed and under pressure to create images for other people’s expectations. From Practice to Portfolio shows you how to maintain absolute freedom and boundaries that will benefit everyone while in this early stage of your photography journey.

Whether you are just starting out, or eager to switch styles but need a strong portfolio to represent your new direction, or you want to maintain the practice of personal projects, this class is the lifeline to making it the most joyful experience possible. Better images. A better experience. Who could ask for more?

Because the process of portfolio building cannot be put into a one-size fits all experience, you can go at your own pace as you follow Brooke’s prompts and encouragements for making the process as painless as possible. This course starts for YOU as soon as you buy it!  Let your portfolio-refining experience begin!

Your Instructor

brooke snowBrooke Snow wants to live in a world where background music plays along to life’s adventures, the smell of a new baby can be bottled, and morning nature walks happen every morning.

As a photographer, she’s been published in Where Women Create and Where Women Cook magazines, featured on the Huffington Post, The $100 Startup, and is a regular contributor to her local NBC lifestyle show Studio 5.

A sought after instructor and speaker, when she’s not putting the magic into her next presentation, you can find her drooling over organic recipes, hiking with a mountain buggy carrying precious cargo, and hanging out in her Farm House with her fabulous little clan in Northern Utah.

Her free course Living a Thriving Life is the perfect anecdote for those seeking balance in the midst of chaos. Discover how to create meaning in both your photos and your life at

Do you have specific questions about whether this course is for you? You can reach Brooke here. (She’s also open to hearing about your favorite organic recipes!)

jen golayJen Golay is a Midwest mom of two boys–ages 14 and 10–who constantly amaze her with their creativity and cleverness.

She is married to her best friend who willingly indulges her love of film photography and never rolls his eyes or complains when she brings another film camera into the house. Learning is Jen’s real passion, and she is always willing to share whatever knowledge she has collected. If she’s not hiding behind a camera, she’s probably hiding behind a book.

You can find Jen’s photography on her blog Daily Life Photography and Instagram, where she shares film images from her everyday life and work. She loves comments and questions and promises to reply!
