Learn - Love - Light - Laughter {Auckland wedding photographers workshop}

We had amazing time and Learn - Love - Light - Laughter at my Auckland wedding photographers live workshop.

“I have been a huge fan of Olga’s work, in fact I wish I could get married again so she can do my wedding photography!
It has been amazing getting this valuable insight from such a talent and the openness Olga comes with is amazing. I have learnt a lot from the materials and the exercises Olga sets give you a deeper way of thinking, creating and challenging yourself. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to up their game.
Olga thank you so much for pouring your heart and soul into this and really caring!!”

“Olga Levien’s work is absolutely breathtaking! I was so very excited to pursue a mentorship with her and she did not disappoint. Her knowledge and expertise in all aspects of the photography business is top notch. She has helped me build confidence in pursuing wedding photography full time by giving me the knowledge and tools I need for a successful business and she has also helped me to find my photography voice and style through wonderful feedback on my photography portfolio. She’s extremely friendly, and highly encouraging and I cannot recommend her enough. 5 stars for Olga Levien!!!”

“This breakout totally exceeded my expectations! Olga is obviously an incredibly talented photographer but her passion for helping others find their voice is so inspiring and motivating… I cannot wait to get out there and shoot with some new perspective!! Olga really has poured her heart and soul into this breakout and there is such a wealth of information here I will be referring back to it for a long time, I’m sure!”

— Sophie

“Olga is one of those photographers that when you see her work it just stops you in your tracks and you wonder HOW does she do that?? I found this class at the right time during my own personal photography journey. I understand the technical basics but I know my photography is lacking something that isn’t tangible that I couldn’t put my finger on. I’ve heard many great photographers say that you need to find your VOICE. Olga is an amazing teacher and I can tell she really put her heart and soul into the materials of this class. I feel that she really wants everyone to succeed and be the best photographer they can be. I’m so glad I found this course and can’t wait to practice what I’ve learned.”

“This breakout is an absolute GAME CHANGER!! Whether you are brand new to photography or have been shooting for years, you will find countless treasures. Olga is so passionate about helping her participants grow, learn and succeed. She holds nothing back as she shares her knowledge, experience and guidance so freely. Olga provides insight and inspiration to help you dig deep to find YOUR voice, YOUR style and to be confident in it! She covers composition, lighting, colors choices, story, mood, movement, emotion and so many other details that will help you take your photography journey to a whole new level. Thank You Olga for pouring your heart and soul into this! Your generosity is going help so many others discover and embrace their creative voice!”

Moments in Christchurch {New Zealand wedding-elopement photographers}

I spent such fantastic time with such emotional moments in Christchurch with many talented New Zealand wedding-elopement photographers who come all the way from Auckland, Kerikeri, Tauranga, Rotorua, Queenstown, Wanaka to visit a great non-workshop - workshop {Badass}. It was so good to spent this time away as Im just about to launch my own workshop | ebook for modern photographers with Click Photo School - such incredible resource of online education for any photographer. I needed to change the atmosphere! {you can find more details about my educational project follow the link to Mentoring | Portfolio Review | Tutorials | Ebook | Breakout}

The idea of this educational for photographers event was to catch up, share some knowledge, recharge at the end of wedding season, get some new inspiration and have a rest in gorgeous old classic style mansion.

We had such a blast - amazing time with beautiful people, where Ambers from Perspectives, Olga from Wild & Grace, Nardia from Nardia Burst photography, Tegan and host of the workshop Sarah Clements been talking all things weddings and we all together discussed so many questions, shared ideas and inspiration.

We also had a chance to get to the Port Hills where amazing couple Jenna & Scott been our models for the short time {it was freezing on the hills, they did such amazing job staying calm}, and Gemma gave us a chance to take some maternity photos {she is a fellow wedding photographer herself}. It was such a great time with beautiful people!

I truly enjoyed every moment! Thank you Tegan and Sarah for organising it and having all us there!
