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. Sometimes roadblocks come in the form of financial concerns, creative ruts, or lack of business organization. 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!
