The idea of phototherapy is focused a lot on the benefits for clients. But as photographers, we're effected with each session too. The techniques we develop in this work make space for us to grow and deepen that work. For me, the change to how I approached every session wasn’t something that happened immediately with a specific experience, but over time by leaving space for me to unpack and integrate each session. The main thing specializing in Phototherapy has taught me these last eight years is this:
THE VALUE OF THE WORK IS IN THE EXPERIENCE ITSELF, NOT THE FINAL IMAGE.
Shifting towards this perspective freed me to be more present while staying boundaried. I’m confident in my images when clients don’t like them. (goodbye impostor syndrome) I feel more connected to my clients and the work itself. I no longer search for what to do (like posing), I’m adaptable during each session. I feel more fulfilled with my work and my creativity. And so much more.
It's the experience that matters most for me, and for the bulk of my clients. We’ll explore this and the importance of Self Care in the Intro to Phototherapy Workshop.
Get ready to deepen your photography and hold space with clients in a new way.
We'll be diving into theories, case studies, getting vulnerable and creating powerful images over two days of education, connection and creativity.
