The workshop has a very practical focus and is broken down in a way that every element is easy to understand. We cover everything from workflow, shooting and editing all the way through to the business stuff that will ensure that your calendar gets filled up with bookings.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been running your photography studio for 10+ years, you will get so much out of these two days.

I’ve toured all around Australia and New Zealand with this workshop and has been SOLD OUT for the last three years. This still blows my mind! I make sure that I put in as much effort as I can to make the workshop incredible, provide a huge amount of value and create an ongoing community that continues to connect with each other after the workshop finishes.

Hundreds of people have already taken this workshop and it has been incredible to watch so many photographers take their business to the next level by implementing many of the techniques taken from the workshop. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the people around me succeed.

The fee includes two days of business-growing knowledge, meals, a goodies bag with notepad and pen plus vouchers from sponsors and a live shoot.

It also includes access to the exclusive Facebook group where you'll receive continued support and potential referrals for weddings and other photography jobs.

Testimonials from past workshop attendees

"If you had to do only one workshop in your life, then it had to be Jai - Free the Bird. I have take on SO much for my own business, Jai shares his knowledge so openly with so much passion. He knows what he is talking about and all the years of experience to run a successful business. I couldn’t be more grateful to have cross path with Jai and attend his workshops. He is one inspiring human being."


I have always followed Jai’s work he has always been a big inspiration to me and when I saw he was holding a workshop I was straight onto it. The thing that I loved most about his workshop was it was largely business focused and not the usual “this is how you hold a camera, this is what gear to use nonsense”. The workshop would suit anyone from beginners to people years into their businesses and I’m certain everyone could learn something from Jai. 


This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to take their business to the next level. We have wedding, portrait, family, boudoir and many other types of photographers join the workshop and really get a lot from it. 

This workshop is definitely more advanced than "how to use your camera". We dive into how to present your business and offer an optimum service to your clients, the full customer experience, how to market effectively and all that good stuff that will really get your business booking as much new work as it can handle.

Yes. You will be added to the exclusive Facebook group that I personally manage on a daily basis and answer any questions you might have. The group has all the people that have ever taken the workshop and we always share leads, tips and other helpful resources.

I also offer mentoring sessions for those who are ready to take the next step with their business.

This workshop is designed to be spread over two days so that I can ensure that you'll get results. The first day is more photography-related and the second is all to do with business but both days really complement each other.

The ticket does not include accommodation or travel. Some workshops include meals, so check the description when reading the workshop details.

You will receive a confirmation email and all of the relevant details will follow. You'll also be added to the exclusive Facebook group just before the date, so you can say hi to everyone who will be joining you at the workshop.
