According to LisaLangell-HeadshotLisa Langell, many people believe that they are “not artistic,” but like so many skills in life, creativity is a learned skill. Through this program you will learn to be more artistic and creative with your photography.

All too many people “prevent” the creative process from happening. One of the biggest mental blocks is simply believing, “I am not a creative person.” Most often, this is from individuals who are in scientific and technical fields.

This program is designed to break down creative barriers in a really fun and logical way.

You will learn how to apply the creative process and develop patterns that will bring more joy, innovation, success, creativity and happiness to your photography!

  • Understand “imaginative skill” and how it develops.
  • Learn how you can debunk your own myths about artistic and creative ability.
  • Learn Lisa’s “Mash up” formula for producing creativity.
  • Get inspirations to take with you.

Lisa Langell is a full-time working photographer in Arizona whose photography has included the cover of Outdoor Photography, plus her images have graced Arizona Highways, Ranger Rick, and various art galleries. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the North American Nature Photography Association.
