Cypress Photographer

Maribella Portraits is coming to Chicago for a once in a lifetime photography workshop. Have you ever wondered how to develop your own style and brand? Walk with me as we take your art from imagination to reality while keeping a profitable business in mind.

This workshop will focus on finding the artist inside of you. We will discuss inspiration from start to finish and exploring the elements of a photograph that will evoke emotions and tell the stories you want to tell. The Workshop is a hands on creative workshop for Intermediate to Advanced Photographers who want to get to the next level in their photography careers.

“I don’t hold back information. When you leave my workshops you will leave with a plan for growth and the knowledge to achieve your goals. This is no ordinary workshop. No questions are off limits. I want to get you out of your comfort zone, get you excited to develop your art and business. Applying the aspects of my workshop you will not only walk away with a blueprint on how to grow your business and art, but I am also genuinely interested in watching you growth. ”
