We all ache to make our art come to life.

As artists, we want to express ourselves and find joy and be proud of the work we have created, but sometimes getting there is easier said than done. Join Lauren Grayson on a journey to discover your true artistic potential and creative abilities. Embracing the edge is for the professionals and hobbyists alike who know what they want to say, but can’t quite convey their vision. This breakout is all about finding our ‘edge’ in the photography world and letting go of our fears and jumping off the creative cliff. This educational experience will not only focus on bridging the gap between the work you want to create and the work you currently create, but focus on practical tips while shooting families and children. Learn to hone your abilities with posing, editing, styling and more, and release a side of you that you don’t even know you have yet. Embracing the Edge is taking who we are and becoming who we want to be…an unconventional artist. Along the way you’ll discover the key to being desired, needed and in demand (as well as happy with your work!).

    Lauren’s break out is by far one of my favorites.

    Posted by Becci ravera on 6th Nov 2017

    True to her personality and shooting style she shares the rawness of her artistic journey and why it is so important to embrace who you are as an artist. She shares a ton of little tips and tricks that are beyond helpful and her pullbacks of locations help you really grasp what to look for in your own location scouting adventures. There is a reason that Lauren is such a celebrated educator in the photography community and her break out absolutely does not disappoint. If you are on the fence about purchasing a break out or struggling with your own personal journey as an artist this is the break out for you.

    Lauren’s work is so AMAZING but having the opportunity to see how she works with clients is so refreshing.

    This breakout is so much more than watching her work or reading a few pages she helps you look within yourself for the answers. Lauren’s true nature of her soul shines through the pages and defines what our hearts try to create with our cameras. I believe no matter where you are in your journey this is a class you must take!!

    It is a must for photographers at any level, whether you are a pro or just starting to work with clients like myself. Lauren not only is a great artist, but a wonderful teacher. Her PDF is full of amazing info to transform your whole process and help you in EVERY single step of the way. For me it has been eye opening. She is also very interactive during the LIVE breakout, engaging and always motivating the students. I cant recommend this breakout enough! Thanks Lauren
