(Deposit) The Kindle Workshop - 3 Day Pass


[October 1-3, 2019 in Victoria, BC]


Welcome to the Kindle Workshop #3!

The Kindle Workshop is a three-day hands-on collaborative learning experience hosted by the two of us, Ang McCabe and Nicole Ashley. We have both spoken at conferences worldwide and have over 25 years of combined professional photography experience, We are passionate about educating and motivating other artists to push the boundaries of their art and take their business to the next level. After two successful Kindle Workshops in 2018 with incredible feedback, we are excited for all we have planned this fall including having a guest speaker, an up and coming artist who has taken this industry by storm — Henry Tieu (Henry’s Diary)!

Taking place in Victoria, BC (Ang’s hometown) this three-day workshop will be held on a beautiful property just 12kms from downtown — the Horticulture Center of the Pacific (the Gardens at HCP). The classroom style education will take place in the pavilion, and the styled sessions put together by Victoria’s most sought after wedding vendors will be set up throughout the gardens.

We are so thrilled to have Henry Tieu on board, who will be present throughout the duration of the workshop. Not only will he grace us with his uplifting presence, laughs and incredible dance moves, but he will be providing a featured presentation for us as well as hands-on learning during the styled sessions.

Three packed days of educational material will be taught as well as several fully styled sessions (focusing on intimate couples portraiture and weddings). Attendees will receive delicious catered lunches along with beverages throughout the day. Let’s be honest, it’s all about the food!

What should I bring?

Please bring a notebook or laptop for taking notes as well as a DSLR camera and lenses. You will be shooting alongside Nicole and Ang, so anything you would bring to a regular photoshoot (but scaled down) would be a good idea.

What is your refund policy?

Payments are non-refundable but are transferable.

Can I use the images from the styled sessions in my portfolio?

Yes! We are curating amazing styled shoots for you to use in your own portfolio. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase fresh work or perhaps break into an area you have yet to shoot (couples boudoir or weddings). We will be demonstrating how we approach our sessions and then will be there to help you with live shoots. It is, however, required that attendees credit the workshop and vendors when sharing images (images may be used for personal use and portfolio but cannot be entered into photography contests).

Are accommodations included?

Accommodations are not included, however, there is a hotel just a few minutes from the property (Howard Johnson Hotel and Suites Victoria Elk Lake) as well as Air BnBs nearby (search near Royal Oak or Elk Lake). You can also post in our Facebook group if you are looking for a roommate and/or carpool buddy.


It is recommended to rent a car and/or find a carpool buddy. Taxis and public transport are also an option.

What is the weather like in Victoria, BC that time of year?

The average temperature in October is 14-18 degrees C (57-65 F) but bringing layers is encouraged. We are anticipating and hoping for sunny weather, but the west coast can be unpredictable. The classroom education will be indoors and we have back up plans in place for our outdoor sessions should we come into some weather complications.



Book now to receive our early bird pricing of $499 (save $100) for One Day Pass and $1849 (save $149) for Three Day Pass.


Our goal is to provide a fun and educational three-day experience that leaves you feeling inspired to take your art and business to another level. Our hope is to create an intimate community with the attendees so that everyone can stay in touch and continue to motivate and learn from one another in the future!
