Inspire Photo Retreats + Fotoskribe

August 5, 2015

The hardest part about leaving my job at MIT to start my photography business full time, was leaving a community for a work-from-home life. The introvert in me was very excited about working on my own terms, but I knew I would miss having a group of caring people dedicated to their work and happy to lend a hand when it was needed.

Fast forward to 2011, a few months into my soloprenuer career, I went to my first Inspire Photo Retreats conference (then Inspire Boston) in Concord, MA. This was their second time running the conference and I felt like I was walking into a room of people who all knew each other. -Terrifying- When I tell you I walked out 3 days later and that this amazing group of people changed my life and my business, I am not conveying enough how this experience changed me and my business. I felt welcomed and most importantly – I had found a community again.

Inspire Photo Retreats is now in their 6th year and will be held in a new location at the Hyatt Regency in Newport, RI on February 8-10, 2016. I am so excited to announce that Fotoskribe has partnered with Inspire and we have signed on to be one of their sponsors again this year.

If you are a professional photographer looking to learn, be inspired, and connect, then this is the conference for you. Both new professionals and seasoned veterans have found value in this 3-day retreat. Check out the Inspire website for more information and registration. And don’t wait! The attendee list is limited to retain that sense of community that we all value so much and it will sell out!

At the conference, we will be having a WordPress and Blogging Q&A booth. So if you are attending, please feel free to bring any and all questions about your WordPress site or just general questions about blogging as a photographer and come visit us!



We can’t wait to see you then!
