Basecamp: Education for a Creative Culture
The education you've been looking for
The creative world just got a whole lot easier & a whole lot better. Basecamp is an online platform that helps photographers build a thriving business through powerful courses, accountability, and insight from industry experts.
CREATIVES, LISTEN UP.
Welcome to Basecamp
Basecamp is for the creative who is looking to consistently grow in their craft, client experience, and business expertise. It’s for the creative who is eager to navigate entrepreneurship while in community with other people. As photographers, we have a lot of skills that need to be mastered. Basecamp is here to help you learn the ropes to these skills alongside peers and mentors who are in the thick of the entrepreneurial journey, just like you.
Moral of the story? The creative world can be tough.
You aren’t alone. There isn’t a one size fits all fix, but Basecamp is here to fill in the gaps with ongoing education and the guidance you need.
- Learning the art of photography takes a lot of time, effort, and investment. It’s not something you can learn overnight (or by yourself).
- Running a Business 101 wasn’t a thing in school, and if it was, it sure didn’t teach us the ropes of being a creative business owner.
- Balancing life, sessions, editing, and building up your business sometimes feels like one too many things to juggle.
Basecamp is like the Netflix of Photography Education. I have 6 children which does not allow me time to sit down at my computer, but with Basecamp it is learning at your own pace and I love not feeling rushed.Dawn has covered so many topics and even after being in business for 4 years now, there is somethingto be learned no matter where you are in your business!
Dawn, here… Founder & Lead Educator behind Basecamp.
Imposter syndrome and a lack of accountability held me back for wayyy too long.
As someone who has now been a full-time photographer for 7 years, I am SO aware of the grit, skill, and mental strength it takes to be a creative. For so long, I held myself back in an effort to keep to myself and stay in my own lane. In recent years, I’ve made it my mission to pour into community and creativity more fully, and I want more than anything to pass that along to you. That’s exactly why Basecamp was created: to be accessible, affordable, and helpful for any and all creatives who are searching for a push in achieving their dreams and goals.
An accessible, ever-evolving course library and community education platform for creatives chasing after a successful photography business. If straight-to-the-point, comprehensive education at an affordable price is what you’re after, Basecamp is the missing piece you’re looking for in your creative career.
Let’s get down to business (literally)...
