Art & the Heart is a photography workshop by Australian photographers Dan O'Day and Samm Blake. The workshop is about inspiring, pushing and challenging photographers/creative’s to create both the photography work and business they wish and strive for.

Over the three days, we will be discussing your role as an artist, extending creative boundaries, uncovering creative blocks, how to stay inspired and, importantly, how to define your own style. It will be a time to help you find your voice as a photographer and give you the tools to create a photography business that will ultimately give you much happiness and freedom.

We will discuss the importance of storytelling in photography so you are able to create great images that are ultimately a collaboration between you and your clients.
