Latitude Photography School is all about helping you connect the dots between your vision, purpose and achievement in your photography. It’s for travel/outdoor photographers who are comfortable with their gear and want to do more, explore more, and really hone in on their craft. All the lessons and conversations are geared towards tapping into your unique vision and then creating more meaningful photographs. You’ll also learn things to sharpen your skills and your purpose with your photography as well. The price is increasing on January 9, 2022. But if you sign up now you’ll be able to lock in the current rate. Please check out the website for more information https://brentbergherm.com Another thing about Latitude Photography School, I’m revamping my Globetrotter program. It is the ultimate experience to infuse energetic growth into your photography experience. This is accomplished through a focused 9-week experience that is starting in mid March, 2022. It includes lifetime access to the website, weekly sessions, both individual with just me AND group sessions with other globetrotters. If you want to get started with something right away, I say go ahead and sign up for the Adventurer program. And if you want to then upgrade to the Globetrotter experience you’ll be able to just pay the difference between the two programs once it’s released.  Please find the link in the show notes about the Globetrotter interest list and you’ll be the first to be notified when it’s open and available. It will open on March 1, 2022, and then enrollment will close on March 11, 2022. We’ll then start right after that with our sessions and lessons. You can also expect customized assignments and readings as this is a program designed to address your interests and needs to help you grow and transform into the photographer you want to become.  And if you can’t dedicate yourself to a solid nine weeks, don’t worry, we can accommodate some custom schedules too :) https://brentbergherm.com/latitude-photo-school/globetrotter/   View the the show notes on the website: https://latitudephotographypodcast.com/episode/140 New way to support the show.

Networking You’ve never met three of the book’s contributors Do not make enemies Ego is the enemy - A GREAT BOOK by this title Strong ego = you believe in yourself Big ego = the bad part of ego Basic Premise(s) Work hard during the day Don’t put all your eggs in one basket A Photographer’s Website Treat everyone like they’re at a local deli Blog on a regular basis About what’s in your heart Give stuff away for free Socialize Advertising on social networks?
