FIND in a BOX Review | Education

 

My photography journey began when I was young. It got fueled with a disposable camera when I was 10 and it grew with a Canon AE-1 at age 16. I've been mainly self-taught which has its pros and cons. However, about a year ago, I came across FIND in a BOX and it was life changing. There was content I definitely knew but there was much more information that was pure gold to me. I could have avoided years of trial and error that could have put me much further into my career had this existed years ago. Jon not only talks about gear, film stocks and a run down on culling and editing—he shows you. He literally has video content that narrates what he does and how he does it. Being the visual learner that I am, those videos changed the way I approached my subjects and it made me a better film photographer. What I invested in FiaB has already paid for itself in bookings, clients and my own satisfaction with my work. I was terrified to include film in my packages at first because I wasn't confident that the images would show. I thought I needed to spend a ridiculous amount of money on film & processing, just to make a session successful. FiaB made me a confident film photographer that doesn't need a million rolls to have a beautiful gallery—I can produce gorgeous images with just one roll! This has made it possible to keep my prices affordable for my ideal client while still allowing me to use the medium I love.

If you're beginning your journey with film or somewhere along the middle, I cannot recommend this workshop enough. Heck! There is no other film workshop like it—trust me, I've seen a LOT of them.

If you would have told me that I was going to be capturing my clients with film, to the point where I can shoot indoors, I would've looked at you like you were crazy. Shooting film indoors is not easy! But now it's my favorite thing. Never in a million years would I have been so bold with film if it wasn't for the teachings of Jonathan Canlas. You too can have your mind blown by purchasing the workshop. By using the code HOLSTEIN, you will get $600 OFF FIND in a BOX. The code expires March 22nd.

I'd be shouting FIND in a BOX's praises from the rooftops for free, but Jonathan has arranged that I get a few bucks each time you sign up for the workshop.
