An exclusive invitation from Great Escape Publishing…
Give Us 2 Days…and We’ll Help You Become a Money-Making Photographer
Discover the pros’ tricks to make photos that sell…set up a passive income from your images…and earn while you do something you love
Point, Shoot and Profit: Online
May 15-16, 2021
If you enjoy photography and like the idea of turning your camera into a money-making device, you should know: You could get paid to capture images of everything from your own dog to a pizza at a restaurant in town to Big Ben in London.
You could earn while you make your own hours, travel when and where you like, and wake up excited to turn something you love into income.
When you know the strategies, you can earn with images you snap just about anywhere—from as close as your kitchen table to as far away as Bangkok or Nairobi.
You don’t need any experience or fancy equipment to get started. If you have an interest in creating good photos and in turning them into cash…you can do this.
I’d like to show you exactly how at our first-ever Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photography Workshop, May 15-16, 2021.
During two fun days spent (online) in the good company of our professional photography experts, I guarantee: You’ll not only enjoy yourself… but you’ll come away with the skills you need to sell your images to…
- online stock agencies,
- local businesses,
- and other photo buyers around the world.
Whatever you like to take photos of, we’ll help you understand where you can sell those photos and begin to turn your interests into income.
It could be a photo of a teacup in your cabinet, or a flower in your back yard…
It might be a shot from a faraway adventure like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or a food stall in Bangkok…
If you can take pictures like these…
You could easily…
- Turn photos of your days out, your backyard, even objects around your house, into income…
- See your photos on the cover or inside pages of a glossy magazine…
- Earn a couple hundred to a few thousand dollars for your vacation and hometown photographs…
- Build a steady stream of passive income from your photos that can pay your bills or fund your retirement…
- Turn a hard drive full of images gathering dust on your computer into spare cash…
- And when the time is right, travel to places you’ve only dreamed of… and let your photo royalties foot the bill
Why Now is a Great Time to Boost Your Photo Skills
This is Declan Aylward, Editorial Director at Great Escape Publishing.
I realize we’re still hunkered down for the moment, so you may be asking: “How can I get started as a photographer when I’m stuck at home?”
But there’s arguably never been a better time to get your “ducks in a row” to learn the ins and outs of this photography business, beef up the skills you need to take saleable photos, and make yourself attractive to the businesses that need photos for their websites, social media channels, and marketing materials.
Whether it’s ordering takeout, shopping for groceries, or even new clothes…these days, we do more and more of our spending online.
And the pandemic has accelerated that trend, with businesses moving online to meet demand.
Every business website, blog, or social media account relies heavily on photos to get their message across. And that includes businesses in and around your home town…
Who are they going to get to take these photos for them? Well, it could be you! And this May, our experts will show you how it’s done—including,
- How to know what photos to take and how to turn one idea into multiple images—and then sell them.
- What sort of photos probably aren’t worth your while if your goal is to sell them—you don’t want to waste your time on images nobody is looking for.
- How to know what’s “hot” so you’re always at the front of a trend and snapping the kinds of images most likely to make you money.
Jump Start Your Photography Success
Over two days, you’ll gain all the expert advice and professional guidance you need to jump start your photography success so you can break into this world of photography and enjoy the freedom it can provide—fast and efficiently.
You’ll log in on Saturday with your notebook and a camera. And log off on Sunday evening with everything you need to know to turn your photos into pay checks.
Our overriding goal: accelerate your success and cut years off your learning curve—so that sooner than you imagine possible, you can be earning a rewarding income from taking pictures that sell.
“Much of the time, I simply take pictures of things I do, and places I go in my everyday life. It’s these same photos that can end up being the ones that sell the most. For example, I snapped this photo at a friend’s wedding in Paris. And now it’s in a frame on a shelf in a store (the “pretend” photo they use to sell the frame)—all because I sold it as a stock image (something I’ll show you how to do this May). You never know where your images may turn up—which is actually pretty cool. I’ve seen mine on album covers, books, even on billboards. And every time they sell, I make money.”
— Shelly Perry
You Can Do This!
Even if you’ve only ever taken
snapshots of family and friends…
You’ll be surprised how easy and flexible it can be to turn photography into a rewarding income… once you know a few tricks of the trade.
If you’re looking for a full-time gig, you can treat it that way. Or this can easily be something you do on the side – on weekends or only when you travel.
You don’t have to be a gifted photographer or own the fanciest equipment—you just need to know who’s buying and what types of photos they’re looking for. And that’s exactly what we’ll show you in May—just like we did with Kristen Bentz…
Kristen attended our workshop in Phoenix, AZ several years ago and soon after used her new skills to sell her photos locally. Today she’s making a name for herself with her dramatic weather and storm images like this one:
But what’s really great for Kristen is that she’s having a blast. She’s doing something she’d gladly do for free in her spare time anyway. The only difference now is that she’s making money from it.
And she’s not alone…
Colleen Bessel first attended a Great Escape photo workshop in 2014 and is now selling her photos as fine art on a tiny island off the coast of Vancouver. She sets up a booth at her local art fair where she displays bright color photos that she’s turned into digital watercolors.
Colleen took this quick snap while at a wedding and it’s gone on to earn her over $1,000 over the last five years—a single shot! All told she earns about $3,000 each summer selling photo prints at her booth.
And take Danny Warren.
Danny is the proud father of two beautiful children. He has a full-time job as a computer programmer. Photography is a hobby for Danny. A busy and hectic schedule doesn’t leave him with a lot of extra time.
Whenever he gets a spare moment, Danny escapes to go hiking, camping, and traveling—and of course taking pictures of his adventures along the way. He’s able to submit photos from his trips to an online stock agency where they sell without any extra work on his part.
Danny’s grateful to have a steady passive income stream that helps fund his travels, and boost the family budget doing something he loves.
Not one of these folks had any formal training as a photographer.
They simply learned a few tricks behind creating a good photograph and how to sell it…and next thing you know, they’d discovered how to turn a fun photo hobby into a viable income stream.
No Travel? No Problem. Take Profitable Photos in Your Own Home
While travel and destination shots from exotic vacations can make for great photos, there’s no reason you can’t start taking saleable photos around your house, your backyard, and your hometown. In fact, many folks have made good income from photos, without going far at all…
Lisa Top spent a few minutes running around the house taking pictures of oddities (gopher mounds, termite droppings, dry rot) anything that could be considered “pesty”. She figured insurance and pest-control companies might need photos like these.
And she was right!
She recently wrote to tell me that her photo of termite droppings is now her best seller online.
Patrick S. in Colorado isn’t a professional photographer either. One day, out at a nearby park with the family, he had his camera in tow and started taking a few shots… shots he then sold to an airline in-flight magazine.
He was hooked. Every place is a destination for somebody, after all… and these photos were designed to entice vacationers to come to his hometown. The best part? The first collection of shots he sold earned him $450. And then he did it again to the tune of $800. And then again for $1,300!
Discover How Fun and Easy it can be to
Turn Your Photos into Cash…
Join us for our Online Workshop, and you’ll login at the beginning of Day 1 with this idea that you might like to be a professional photographer. By the time we wrap up at the end of Day 2, you’ll feel excited, confident, and ready to make it happen.
You’ll have opportunities to ask questions along the way. And after the two days come to an end, you’ll have a chance to put what you’ve learned into practice.
We’ll give you an assignment, and once you’re happy with the images we ask you to make, you’ll pick one to send in. And one of one of our professional photographers will review it personally—so you’ll get feedback specific to you and your photo with guidance about what you got right, what could be improved, and even where you might sell it.
We’ve structured this program to be practical—and that means everything you’ll learn will help get you that much closer to living life as a money-making photographer… a life where you’re learning new things and exploring new places and enjoying a real adventure.
And we’ll show you how you can make that true, even in these crazy times.
When you join us on May 15-16, you’ll see how you can turn your spare time into money-making time—and have fun doing it. Even if all you’ve ever done is take vacation snapshots and pictures at family holiday time.
It doesn’t take any special equipment. Or years of experience. In fact, if you can snap simple photographs like these, you can do it…
You Likely Have Everything You Need to Get Started
There’s no question: This craziness will pass, eventually, borders will open up, and we will travel again… but in the meantime: It’s the ideal time to position yourself well for success.
Right now, we can’t put you in a room in person with our experts. But that’s why we’ve created this Online Workshop. This way we can come to you. We’ll show you how it’s all done, and you can soak in the secrets—from the comfort of your home.
Taking saleable photos…seeing your images in print…setting up passive income from stock images… With the right guidance, anyone can do all those things.
You DON’T need a degree in fine art or top-of-the-range studio equipment to start making money from photography.
Nor do you need a super-fancy camera. (In fact, we’ll show you how you can turn your images from your smartphone camera into a cash.)
What you DO need is curiosity… And a willingness to learn the techniques, tricks, and secrets the pros rely on to create the types of photos that customers want.
This May at our Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photography Workshop, that’s exactly what our team of professional photo experts will show you.
Join us at The Point, Shoot and Profit: Photography Workshop and you’ll discover:
- Why photography is the best way to make money on the internet—something you can do for fun, on your own schedule, and without a big investment in gear.

- Learn the secret to selling your images online. You don’t need to do ANY marketing. They sell themselves 24 hours a day, even while you sleep. And they can be photos of anything from your houseplant to the Eiffel Tower.

And discover how you can take photographs right in your own back yard that will bring in more than $1,000 over time, like it has for some of the photos above—and what’s even better, is that it could be passive income!
- How to be smart about work/life balance: How to balance time and money so you’re earning the most from the least amount of work.
- The “magnet” formula to creating a buying frenzy for your photos! It’s all in how you describe your images. We’ll hand you the “keywording tool” that works like magic. It’s fast. And it’s easy.
- Find out how to sell simple travel photographs to magazines and newspapers. You decide where you want to go when travel opens up again—getting spa treatments in Bali, skiing in Utah, shopping in Paris—and we’ll show you how to turn pictures from your trip into money in your pocket.
- Get feedback on your photos in our post-workshop review session. You’ll quickly see from our team of professional photographers and photo editors exactly what makes for a good photograph. You’ll find out why those glossy magazine photos always look so stunning and how you can tweak yours to have the same effect.
- Learn where to start: Discover what photo buyers want from beginner photographers like you. Skip the “guessing game” of what buyers want, save time, and find out exactly how to succeed from the get-go.
How to Turn Your Hometown into an Income…
In addition to all the opportunities to sell stock and fine-art photos of your own hometown… we’ll also show you a simple new skill you can quickly learn, to earn $300 – $2,800 per project, in a single weekend, by working with local businesses…
And when you do that, you’re pretty much guaranteed local celebrity status. That means invites to all sorts of fun stuff—like gallery openings, tourist attractions, new restaurants, and more…
This May, at our Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photography Workshop, we’ll show you how it’s done…
Get Paid to Have FUN!
If you’d like to set your own hours…travel when you please…wake up every morning loving what you do, then you absolutely have to join us for this one, power-packed weekend.
As I mentioned, this workshop isn’t filled with abstract fluff. We tell you how, in the real world, this industry works. And then we show you—step-by-step—exactly how to navigate your way through it.
You’re not alone. Over the years we’ve shared the secrets to success with thousands of readers just like you. And the folks who have joined us in the past will tell you they’re happier, healthier, and more successful because they did.
“This workshop changed my life—or at least the direction it was going in. My biggest fear was dying before I actually had a chance to live. You gave me hope, confidence and skills all at the same time. I’ve been all over the United States…to Ireland, Fiji and Paris thanks to these events. I’m, of course, doing all the “hard” work of taking photos. But you opened my eyes to the possibilities and I’m forever grateful.”
— Theresa St John
“I never thought I’d be a photographer. I was actually more interested in writing than I was photography. Now look—my last print just sold for $1,500 and I’m having so much fun with it. I keep telling everyone: Just try it. You’ll never know if you like it unless you try it.”
— Wayne Hoover
“I just have to share this. Prior to attending my first photography workshop, I did not know what ISO or F-stop were. I am therefore thrilled every time one of my stock photos shows up somewhere cool. A few months ago one was shown on the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon, and today one showed up on a syndicated column that appeared in all online Sun media newspapers across Canada.”
— Amy Muschik
“I was looking forward to having a great time, learning a LOT, and being inspired. Let me say I was NOT disappointed!! My expectations were greatly exceeded and the workshop was a truly AWESOME experience. The program and instructors were excellent. The environment was supportive and heartfelt. Networking opportunities were plentiful, and all my questions were graciously answered. I was also very pleased to come away with a better sense of my direction with photography and marketing.”
— Lynn C.
No Experience Needed
“A truly friendly approach for beginners as well as lots of more advanced information and techniques/tools for more experienced photographers. And, of course, everyone is made welcome.”
– Vicki C.
“The Photographers Workshop is a great way to open the door to take you to the next level of your photography. The workshop was well worth every penny.”
— Lauri B.
“I feel empowered and fueled with a new energy and that is worth its weight in gold! The warmth of this group extends from the staff to the presenters and radiates throughout the members.”
— Morgane M.

Lisa Norrgard sold at least 20 canvas prints within months, with prices ranging from $225 to $375 each.

This Is Our One and Only Expert-Packed Photography Event of 2021
Every year for the past two decades, we’ve gotten our experts together in person—altogether in one room—and invited readers like you to join us and explore the practical secrets required to break into photography fast.
This year, we’re “getting together” virtually with this first-ever Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photography Workshop—all the expertise and guidance, but no airfare or hotel or restaurant costs.
If you’ve been thinking to yourself, “I really should try photography,” I assure you: there will not be a more powerful or cost-effective way to do it.
I hope you’ll participate in real time over the weekend of May 15-16. But understand, we’ll be archiving the program as it unfolds, so even if you miss something, it’ll be there for you to watch at your leisure, after the fact.
And you’ll have recorded access to the full Workshop forever. That’s included.
And I want to assure you: This isn’t just a “we talk, you listen” event.
Yes, we’ll have lots of useful, eye-opening—and I hope entertaining—presentations for you to watch.
But we’re building in interactive group discussions, too, so you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions at intervals along the way.
And we’ll host a live panel discussion among a group of experts also, so you’ll have a chance to chime in then, as well, and can ask them anything you like.
During those interactive sessions, you’ll be able to submit your comments and questions and get feedback and answers from the experts, on the spot.
What’s more—we’ll be giving you an assignment during the program. You’ll be creating your first saleable image. (Don’t worry, our experts will walk you through exactly what to do.) Once you have your photo (after the Workshop comes to a close), you’ll send it in for a critique by one of the presenters. It’s a way for you to get some concrete, personalized feedback from the experts. And that’s included at no additional charge—it’s part of the Workshop program.
Our speakers are part of the Great Escape Publishing family—and I can say with confidence that they are all extraordinarily generous in sharing their hard-won secrets and expertise.
They genuinely want you to succeed, and so do I.

And not only will you learn these tricks and secrets from the pros, you’ll get a chance to try them yourself, too…
Get Professional And Supportive Feedback—From Mentors Who Want You to Succeed
After all, sitting behind a desk and learning how to do something is completely different from getting up and actually doing it. Our experts will send you out ‘in the field’ after the weekend workshop. We’ll talk you though exactly what to do to get out there and start taking photos you could sell.
And you’ll get feedback on your work so there’s no guesswork.
You’ll know what it takes and you’ll have proof that you can do it. And you’ll come away with the beginning of a saleable photo portfolio in hand (plus all the know-how you need to reproduce saleable photos on your own). That’s what this whole thing is about, really.
Feedback is the number one tool new photographers need to succeed. Good feedback on your images – from a pro that knows the system – can shave years off your learning curve and ultimately put you in a happier place.
You’ll find that this is a safe space for beginners to learn – you won’t get a harsh critique, but rather helpful advice from a supportive and encouraging teacher. Someone who will motivate you to keep at it.
All you need to do is come with an interest in photography—no experience necessary, just a digital camera in hand – and in two days this May, we’ll show you exactly what you need to know to turn photos and videos of your next vacation… your own hometown… and even your pets… into a fast, fun, easy income stream… for life.
In your spare time. Again, no experience necessary.

One big advantage to this program is that it really helps you focus in on what’s most important. It shows you how to work smart—how to prioritize your efforts and make them count. A lot of the secrets you’ll learn would take you years to figure out on your own. But our speakers will spare you the trouble, frustration, and time… and just cut to the chase.
That way you’re sure to be using your time and energy wisely. There’s no more efficient—or fun—way to learn this stuff and guarantee you’re up-and-running, taking photos and selling them—fast.
Here’s How This Program Will Work
This Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photographer’s Workshop will take place over two days, Saturday and Sunday, May 15-16, 2021. It will begin at a manageable time, 11:00 am Eastern/8:00 am Pacific. (You’ll get specific details in your registration packet.)
The online presentations and live discussions will take place over roughly 7 hours each day, with brief, built-in breaks scheduled for your convenience.
Don’t worry if you can’t be there to see each speaker’s presentations. We’ll archive every bit of this Workshop so you can go back and review it at your leisure.
And you’ll have lifetime access to this program online, so you can review it long into the future.
It means that when you participate in this Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photographer’s Workshop:
- You’ll be able to watch the presentations and participate in the Question-and-Answer sessions in real time the weekend of May 15-16, 2021.
- We’ll archive the footage each day, so you can log on and review any presentation you missed—don’t worry if you can’t be available for every session.
- You’ll have access to the full recordings and written program “handouts” and other materials.
- PLUS, as a participant, you’ll be invited to submit a photo for review by one of our experts. You’ll get your “assignment” during the Workshop, and then the presenters will be on call after it ends, waiting for you to submit your photo so we can give you some personalized feedback that’ll help you kickstart your portfolio.
While we can’t host you in person, with this Online Workshop, you’ll be able to see and hear what our experts say and be virtually “in the room” with them. You can ask questions and be privy to every question your fellow attendees ask—learning the answers firsthand.
Register Now and SAVE BIG
We could reasonably charge $1,997 for an event of this caliber.
- It comes with personalized feedback.
- It’s expert-driven and focused on showing you how to create saleable photos.
- And it’s designed to teach you exactly how to set up a passive income from photos, so that you can build your portfolio and earn incrementally as you go.
In fact, that’s the full price we’ve charged in the past for our live, in-person workshops. And even at $1,997—you could quickly recoup that cost within 90 days of starting out.
But we’re not going to charge anywhere near that.
The registration fee for this Point, Shoot and Profit: Online Photography Workshop is just $897.
However, when you sign on now—by May 7, 2021—you can save $200 and attend for just $697.
And I should point out: You can easily invite a guest—your spouse, partner, or anyone else in your household—to sit next to you for this special online event. And you won’t pay a penny extra.
In other words: You can join us this year for this Online Workshop and do so (with the Early Bird Discount) for about 1/3 what it would have cost you to attend a program like this in person. Same experts. Same secrets. But at a small fraction of the price.
And we’re making it easy—we’re coming to you!
Though this Workshop is non-refundable once the program has begun, if you decide—between now and May 10, 2021—that you don’t want to attend after all, you can simply let us know, and we’ll issue you a full refund.
This represents a truly extraordinary value for two days packed full of professional guidance and expert access.
But please be aware—this is the ONLY event of this kind we’re hosting this year. We’re not sure when we’ll be able to gather our experts at one time again.
So if you’re ready to jump-start your success… if you’re ready to use this time at home wisely to position yourself well as money-making photographer, then I can say with confidence: This is the best way I know for you to do it.

The Photographer’s Glossary

Photo opportunities exist everywhere. On the roadside… at work… while talking with friends…in your backyard…and even during a simple walk in the park. And these photo opportunities could easily be making you money… But what you might not already know is that there are literally hundreds of markets where you can sell your photos.
Let me assure you: During this Workshop, we’ll teach you everything you need to know to get started selling your photos—fast.

And there’s another one, too…
Special Bonus # 4:
Simple Home Setup Instructions
In this ‘print-and-follow’ set of instructions, you’ll find a checklist of equipment you’ll need to set up your own home studio.

The step-by-step instructions make it easy for anyone to follow, from beginners, to more advanced photographers.
Simple Home Setup Instructions includes tips on lighting, shot setup and composition and exposure. Designed to be printed easily, this will quickly become your go-to checklist for taking studio-style photos.

You need to know about marketing yourself efficiently so you’re earning more money for every photo you take… about the practical aspects of keeping track of what you’ve sold, what you’re owed, what taxes you need to pay, and so on.
In The Business of Photography, you’ll discover exactly what it takes to sell more photographs and take more checks to the bank. This step-by-step guide will lead you through the business aspects of freelance photography… from setting yourself up as a pro, to approaching editors, to saving your photos in the correct file format, to tax preparation… and much more—allowing you to get back to the fun part—taking photos.

After all, a modest one-time fee can open the door to a lifetime of money-making photography, to the thrill of seeing your images in glossy magazines and on websites, and the fun of exploring your home state, and—when we can all travel again, exotic destinations—in a way you never could as a regular-old tourist.
But we wanted to be sure you understood exactly how you could make the numbers work. Because if you follow the guidance our presenters will share, you could easily make back your registration fee within three months.
To prove it to you, we created this guide—How to Earn Back Your Workshop Fee in 90 Days or Less—to show you precisely how you could do it. Even if you’re a complete beginner…
This Special Bonus—along with all the others—is yours, FREE, when you register today.

Space is Limited—Don’t Wait to Secure Your Place
To ensure premium bandwidth—and because we’re committed to providing individualized feedback from our speakers on every participant’s work—we are, by necessity, limiting the number of people who can participate in this Workshop in May.
So space is at a premium. Please don’t wait to sign on or you risk missing out altogether.
This is the ONLY program like this we’re hosting this year.
This Point, Shoot and Profit: Photographer’s Workshop is our biggest, our best, and our ONLY photography event of the year.
Over two power-packed days—May 15-16—you’ll have a chance to tune in from home and immediately apply what you’re learning.
In my view, it’s not really useful to just sit back and scribble notes on a pad of paper. Yet that’s what you typically do in seminars.
What IS useful, on the other hand, is to roll up your sleeves, lean forward, and really put what the speakers are showing you into practice. And that’s what we’ll have you do.
We’ll provide you step-by-step instruction on exactly what you need to do to create a saleable photo. And then, of course, we’ll show you what to do after that, how—and where—to sell the photo you create on the heels of this event—and the many more you’ll be prepared to sell in the weeks, months and years to follow.YES!

“Each workshop is unique. Even speakers that have been at past workshops come with a new twist, or new way of looking at photography. The second time around, I actually knew what they were talking about, and I was more able to absorb all the information we were given so I could improve my skills.”
– Elizabeth Coughlan
“The level of knowledge is off the charts, yet the instructors are so willing to take their valuable time to get as basic as the attendees need. Truly an exceptional investment in my future.”
“If you’re on the fence about attending, hop off and do it! You will learn far more here than you would elsewhere.”
– Reba M.
“The amount of care they take to help you learn and develop as a photographer is second to none. You cannot come away without at least a dozen ways to move to professional status.”
– Jeffrey J.
