Alpine Destinations - Joshua Tree - Feat. Anni Graham

Alpine Destinations - Joshua Tree - Feat. Anni Graham



When we started Alpine we did so with this specific workshop series in mind.  One thing we've realized after traveling all over the world is that movement is in our blood.  Everything in the universe moves, so the call to travel is ingrained deep within us all.  Mark Twain presents our favorite sentiment regarding travel:  

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”

We're STOKED to announce that for our first Destination workshop, we'll be venturing to Joshua Tree California with the astounding Anni Graham. Anni, Noelle, and Braden will support, guide, and instruct 25 students as we focus on the in’s and out’s of becoming a successful destination wedding photographer.

If your dream is to be flown to far off lands to shoot intimate weddings under waterfalls and on cliffsides and GET PAID TO DO IT, then this is the workshop for you. We will cover every area involved in becoming a traveling wedding photographer, from learning how to market yourself well, to shooting in every kind of lighting. Our goal is to help you close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in your business.

Come hang out with us in the desert. Eat good food, stay up late talking around the fire while staring at the milky way, and build lasting friendships with like-minded photographers in the experience of a lifetime. You won’t regret it.

  • The Basics:

    • How to stand out from the crowd and book your dream couples

    • Why creating meaningful connections with your couples is so important

    • How to capture authentic, emotion filled images

    • Hands on shooting technique, mastering all kinds of lighting, focus, white balance, and more

      • Workflow + editing, don’t let lightroom rule you, you rule lightroom

  • Economics for Entrepreneurs:

    • The power of knowing when to say YES! and more importantly when to say NO!!

    • Collaborators vs. Detractors and the "invisible hand" of networking.

    • Efficiency in growth:  Maintaining a "45°  Incline". (here's a hint, it almost never feels like consistent growth.  Time, tracking, and faith are the key factors in consistent growth).

  • Power in the face of fear:  Your "weaknesses" become the fuel of your passions.

  • Styled shoots in vintage airstreams and in Joshua Tree!

  • Shooting under the stars! Bring your tripod.


Our home base for this workshop will be in Joshua Tree Acres, a unique community of vintage airstreams in the heart of Joshua Tree, CA. Workshop attendees will have the option of sleeping in an airstream or camping out under the stars, and the night sky in the desert is nothing short of amazing.



A note on food and lodging...

The camp at Joshua Tree Acres has 3 airstreams that we'll be using to shoot in.  Each airstream has a bed and we'll be providing an option to book one of the 3 beds (first come first served!).  For everyone else, we're providing a price-sheet for rental gear from Joshua Tree Outfitters. Here's a breakdown of what we're providing and what to bring:

What Alpine is providing:

We have the social proof, the potent know-how, and we're ready to take people deeper. 

Because of the nature of this workshop, we're limiting seats to 25 women. At Alpine, it's part of our core purpose to produce cultural creators, trend-setters, thought leaders.  

We BEG of you, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE only apply if you're truly open and ready to bring absolutely 100% of yourself to this intimate winter experience.  We do our level best to configure our workshops to fit everyone's needs, but it's impossible to meet all expectations.  We ask that only those women who are passionate, driven, flexible learners, who know 100% they're called to push further with us during this week, apply.
