The GraphiStudio education center

Last evening I had an outstanding time with Maureen and Mike and 30-plus photographers who came out to the brand new education center at the GraphiStudio US office in Oakdale, Minnesota. It's so exciting to see GraphiStudio continue to collectively raise the bar among the photographic industry.

Maureen kicked off the program sharing some of the incredibly exciting changes that are talking place at GraphiStudio. Dario sent a few AV presentations from Italy that really gave new insight to the excellence and standards that they put into crafting each book.

And then I spent the next couple hours talking with the photographers about photographic style, marketing and customer service. We also spent a bit of time talking about our new studio gallery that should be opening within the next couple weeks.












Following the presentation several of us went to dinner and spent the evening visiting at Champs.

Thanks so much, everyone, for coming out and spending the afternoon with us. And a special thanks to Maureen and her amazing team for inviting us up. We're already looking forward to the next time.

Garrett- Thank you for your time and sharing of knowledge. I went home inspired in a way i didn't imagine possible from such a short class. Thanks for being transparent and sharing not only the emotion of the photographs, but of your relationship with clients. You are inspiring! Best wishes to you. And congrats on the "bun".

Garrett-Thank you so much for sharing such a passionate side of wedding photography with us. Jeff and I were both truly inspired by your love for your work and for your family. It is not always easy to feel successful at both and good to hear from people who are making it happen.
