    This is the first breakout I’ve done and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!

    Posted by Christine Graham on 6th Nov 2017

    I didn’t really know what to expect from the materials since it was my first one but I was blown away. Not only was the technical information well thought out and presented, but the self discovery aspect that Rebecca outlines was the best part for me. Had I not purchased this breakout, I don’t think I would have ever thought to look inward before looking outward through my camera. I’ve done a lot of other online photography courses and none were as powerful and meaningful as this one. So many of us, me included, search and search for that one technique or that one hint or filter or edit that will make our photography turn into what we envision. I’m so grateful to Rebecca for making that internal self-discovery an important part of her breakout. For me that was the critical piece that was missing in my photography that I didn’t even know I should look for. Rebecca has a fantastic way of writing the information that was both informative, easy to understand and for me she was very easy to relate to. Thank you so much Rebecca.

    Rebecca put together a truly remarkable breakout.

    She gave me the tools to begin thinking at a higher level about who I am as a photographer and why I photograph. Her in-depth exercises are tools that I will continue to use for months and years to come. Rebecca also provided wonderful detailed information about all aspects of documentary photography. Her process was straight forward, broken down, and easy to understand. The images throughout the breakout are inspiring and the editing videos were extremely helpful. I know I will use many of the tools from this breakout as I continue my photography journey. Thank you Rebecca for a fantastic breakout!

    It’s a great foundation for documentary photography. The PDF is extensive and the bonus materials are worth well beyond the price of this BO! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to try documentary with their family!
