Mandi Lynn, a Master Photographer with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography is an internationally award winning photographer and stylist whose work has been featured in Vogue Italia and in International Photography Magazines. Her work has been features in exhibits… which makes her sound all posh and stuff but really she is just a cheeky, playful, down to earth farm girl who happens to be epic at turning peoples inner beauty into fine art.
Mandi’s goal is to give you an experience where you will have your eyes opened to your mojo, your spark, your secret sauce of awesomeness. She wants to help ignite a change in your life where you see how amazing you are right down to your core and cheer you on to start really bringing it out in the world. When that happens it is a beautiful thing to behold and it is why she does what she does.

  • One on one time with Mandi for an hour.  Pick my brain about your portfolio or life.

  • I will be up in Auckland and will do a road trip again at some point.

Experience #3 - Click Happy Camp - Sleep over at the Studio

  • Play with my lights
  • Use our studio costumes
  • Play and practice and pick my brain.
  • Have Pizza, connect in real life

I'm SOOOOO In!  So how am I eligible?

Here is the deal.

In life, you are given breaks.  "Lucky breaks"

But my observation, as well as several golf legends and actresses, is: " The more I practice, the luckier I get."

Creative success comes from the following things.

  • Practising your artistic skillsets - the fundamentals then what sets you apart.
  • Building a brilliant creative community around yourself.
  • Shipping.

So in order to score any of the "Experiences", you need to show your work (shipping).  It doesn't have to be award-winning.  But you need to ship. You don't have to show it to everyone in the workshop but you need to post something as photographic answer to every single one of the challenges.  Don't second guess yourself.  It doesn't need to be profound...just progress.

I want to see your portfolio full of challenges and work at those challenges.   You will need to submit the images individually to the portal.  But not only will you need to submit your own stuff but you will be placed into groups of three and your job is to support each other to get your work over the line.  If one person doesn't complete the mission none of you are eligible for the Experiences.  Because we are our own creative community and we look after each other and we win together.

Be On Time

And you need to be in class on time.  Each time you log in late I get distracted from what I am doing to open the "virtual door" and you miss stuff.

So be there on time even if that means logging in on your phone while you are racing from an appointment.   And don't be a dork like me and leave your phone at home when you are racing home from the Vets to meet with your interns.  We all will make mistakes but the early bird will get these worms.  It is a three-strikes policy from this point on.  If one of your team logs in late then all of your team is "late".   Broken bones, emergencies, and pre arranged lateness due to valid reasons work...casually rocking up late because you got distracted...nope.

So what do you have to do to get the experiences?

  • Submit all of your challenges
  • Help your "pod" to get their challenges submitted as well
  • Get your pod to arrive to the class on time.
