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 another Destination workshop in one of the most breathtaking places on the planet: ICELAND! Anni Graham, Jordan Voth, and India Earl will be returning with us to the land of Fire and Ice for a 3 night, 3 day adventure-packed journey into the stark, expansive landscapes of Iceland’s volcanic beaches, waterfalls, and plateaus. Noelle, Braden, and the Alpine staff will be there in support, holding the space for the instructors and 40 students as we focus on the in’s and out’s of becoming successful destination wedding photographers.

At Alpine, we help those who’s dream is to be flown to far off lands to shoot intimate weddings under waterfalls and on cliff-sides and GET PAID TO DO IT. 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.

Here's what’s included: (Airfare and sleeping bag/air mattress/tent is NOT included!)

  • Come adventure with us in in the land of explosive volcanoes and massive glacial plateaus. Walk with us as you learn to coach ideal couples along Iceland’s black sand beaches. Drive with us down narrow winding roads along the base of volcanic mounds climbing straight out of the sea. The character of this ancient land confuses one’s mind in its expansiveness. If your experience is anything like ours have been on the island, you’ll gain a new perspective for your place in things, and you’ll leave more thankful than when you arrived.

    • 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).

Escape

Into a world of magic and wonder that will leave your perspective forever changed

Comparison of Value:

WE TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THAT IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO JUSTIFY THE COST OF A WORKSHOP.  WE'VE PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT STUDENTS WHO SHOW UP FULLY TO THEIR WEEK WITH US AND APPLY EVERYTHING WE GIVE THEM END UP WITH MAJOR INCREASES BOTH IN THEIR BUSINESS REVENUE AND IN THEIR SATISFACTION AND COMFORT WITH BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.  OUR INSTRUCTORS COMBINE DECADES OF HARD-WON WISDOM THAT HELP OUR STUDENTS RISE TO THE TOP 5% OF EARNERS IN THE INDUSTRY, SKIPPING A LOT OF THE MISSTEPS AND MISTAKES THAT CAN COST YOU MONTHS IF NOT YEARS OF PROGRESS.  IF YOU DO THE WORK, YOU CAN MEASURE YOUR ROI IN MONTHS, NOT YEARS.

Payment Plan:

WE PROVIDE PAYMENT PLANS SO THOSE WHO CAN’T PAY THE AMOUNT IN FULL CAN SPLIT UP PAYMENT AMOUNTS OVER TIME ON A SET SCHEDULE, OR MAKE LUMP PAYMENTS AS YOU GO. WE EVEN HAVE FRIENDLY REMINDERS ABOUT UPCOMING AND MISSED PAYMENTS TO HELP ENSURE YOU STAY ON TRACK IN YOUR BUSY SEASONS. THERE’S NO ADDITIONAL COST FOR USING A PAYMENT PLAN. WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE WHO DON’T HAVE THE BULK PAYMENT UP FRONT CAN INVEST IN THIS LIFE-CHANGING EDUCATION OVER TIME. THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAY: SET ASIDE $200-$300 EACH MONTH, OR FROM 10-15 SEPERATE WEDDINGS, AND YOU’LL HAVE THE INVESTMENT REQUIRED TO LEARN HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR INCOME.

Travel Info

 

As a reminder, airfare is NOT included in the price you pay to us. We generally suggest you book flights as early as 1oo days prior to the day you want to arrive in Iceland for the best prices. Iceland air has competitive prices but many airlines fly through Iceland. You’ll be flying into Keflavik International Airport, which you can find on most flight booking website searches. Depending on the site, you may need to search for Reykjavik. Either way, know that Keflavik International Airport is the primary airport for Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, and is a short shuttle ride to the center of Reykjavik. Remember, if you’re flying from North America, you’ll be losing time zones as you fly east, so to arrive on the Monday morning of the workshop, you’ll likely fly out on Sunday.

Additional Cost Estimate - Airfare/Travel: $500-$800

Your primary lodging costs ARE included in the price you pay to us, however our rental doesn’t provide bedding so you’ll need to bring (or rent from an Iceland outfitter) a sleeping bag, pad, and tent for our adventure together. Our lodging for this workshop will be a mix of dormitory style lodges and good old fashioned tent camping. For the first 2 nights of our adventure, we’ll be staying at a set of mountain lodges on the edge of a glacier with access to natural hot springs and a dry sauna. Our journey continues for the 3rd and final night as we set out around the southern coast of Iceland to spend 1 night camping past the town of Vik. All of your food is provided, from the time you join us to the time you leave!

Additional Cost Estimate - Bedding/Tent: $50
