The Deadline is Monday, December 21st, so get on it!  Just a few days left to apply!

This is a great opportunity for any of you moms out there who love photography but lack the finances, photography equipment, or ability to go to school or get any training.  As long as you can leave your kids for only about 2 weekends in the next year (again, all expenses paid) for some one on one training, you can do everything else from home!  Awesome!

I completely encourage everyone to apply for this great opportunity!  I wish I could apply, so do it for me!

  1. That is just crazy generous/awesome. I’ve been a part of many communities, but the photography community definitely seems to be the most generous and helpful to new talent.
