Connection is Your (New) Business


Next class starts February 18th
Registration Opens February 7th
Teacher Christopher Messenger

We as photographers are in the business of making others and ourselves feel. The feeling of making art and connecting with others is one of the great joys of photography.

But are you operating out of that joy when you treat and feed yourself as an artist? In how you engage with people during a photo shoot? In how you conduct the many details of your business?

Embark on a journey to create and foster a foundation of care and connection that will flow through your work.

Hospitality is no longer just for restaurants and hotels – fostering this culture of care in your photography will rekindle why you picked up the camera in the first place and make your professionalism stand out from the crowd.

The Schedule

All participation and interaction for this class will take place in a private online forum. (Registered students will receive instructions on how to access the forum a few days before class begins.)

On the first Monday of class, Christopher will share Lesson 1 in the forum. He will be available during the week to answer questions and facilitate discussions in the forum as you read and work through your lessons.

Homework will be due on Sunday and personal critiques will take place the following Mondays. Each week will follow the same pattern.

The beauty of this class and every other class at DEFINE is that you can read, practice, and participate throughout the week whenever it is convenient for you- from any timezone, anywhere you have Internet access, at any time of day. Most students spend 3-5 hours per week “in class.”

If you have any questions, please feel free to email

Is this class for you?

This class is for anyone that desires to learn how the subtle art of connection can help make your business dynamic and enhance how you engage with the world while holding a camera in your hand. It’s time to take your artist self out on a date to remember why you do what you do! If you feel like you have lost your voice, have become dependent on other people’s work to define your own, or want to grow in the plethora of ways you interact with your clients, then this class has been prepared for you.
