Film education is a HUGE part of what we do at theFINDlab. Whether that means learning a new medium, mastering a medium you already know or gaining some unexpected tips and tricks along the way, theFINDlab is the industry’s go-to resource for all things film. We wanted to help put together a resource of our favorite film workshops and a guide of who they are best recommended for.
Film knowledge is a living, breathing thing that needs constant nourishment and we’re here to share what we know with you.

Kristin Garcia of Kristin La Voie Photography
Whether you are a brand new photographer shooting your first wedding, or you've been around the block for several years, we can all use a little help.

Managing all the aspects of owning your own business, or learning your photography craft, can certainly be overwhelming! I absolutely love to help others through their journey and inspire you with the confidence to flourish beyond your greatest dreams. Having made hundreds of mistakes myself, I have learned lessons, big and small, throughout my career. So let's help you avoid making those same mistakes, and get you where you want to be!
