How To Grow Your Portfolio


Growing Your Portfolio With Evolve Workshops and The Landlocked Mermaid

I know you want to read all about how adding to your portfolio is going to make you more money… and for those of you who need a reminder on how that works, keep reading below. BUT before we get there, the Iceland content series is about SO much more than just epic imagery. This series was created because we as creatives need more than new images to edit, we need: 

  • To have Less Hustle in our Lives and more refreshing connection to ourselves.
  • To Pause from the rush we are still embarking on and to regain purpose in our work.
  • To Find the Joy in Creating Again.
  • To Create for ourselves again, to be in the moment, not to create FOR a moment.
  • To Ground ourselves again. 
  • To Be Present. 

Covid wiped not only mass amounts of creatives completely out of the industry, but it burned those of us out who have remained in it and are continuing to play catch up. 

This series was created for you to not only refresh your portfolio and expand to new locations, but to help you slow down a bit, reconnect to the earth, take time to listen to your creative instincts again, and to ramp up your passion for the business all over again. Need more of a reason to attend. Here are a few more:
