I’m sure you have questions when you consider purchasing something. Especially something new. Something you can’t see or try out privately. Like my Virtual Family Photo Keeper Workshops. So I wrote this article to answer all your questions.
This is my helping service, and I’m naturally biased. So I’ve tried to make this as unbiased as possible so you can make an informed purchasing decision. After all, you don’t want to buy something that isn’t right for you. And I don’t want that either. I want super happy clients.
So have a look at my blog post below to see if the Virtual Family Photo Keeper Workshops are right for you.
What are Virtual Family Photo Keeper Workshops?
The Workshops are a dedicated time each month where family photo keepers can get together on Zoom while they work on their photo memory collections in the comfort of their own homes.
What’s included in the Workshop?
Accountability, community, and fun! In addition, you’ll have open access to me, a Professional Photo Manager, as well as other participants. You can ask questions, bounce ideas around, and get help as you need it.
How much do the Workshops Cost?
The Workshops cost $6 per event. The Workshops run for 8.5 hours, although you are not obligated to stay the whole time. But if you do, you’re paying less than $1/hour for all the help and company you need while you make progress on your photo management goals.
If you’re lucky, you may win the random drawing held at each Workshop to get your next one for free.
Why does the Workshop cost $6?
I believe it is so important that people get their photo memory collections in order. Both so they can enjoy them now, and also so they can leave a meaningful collection for future generations. And I’d like to help as many people as possible to do this. That’s why it’s so very cheap, about the price of a decadent Starbucks drink.
Is there a refund policy?
I do not offer refunds on Workshops. However, if you find, after you’ve registered, that you cannot attend, I will send you a coupon code that will allow you to register for one of the next three workshops for free. So there’s nothing to lose. I will apply your entire fee to a future workshop.
Who are the Workshops for?
The Virtual Family Photo Keeper Workshops are not for everyone, and I only want you to sign up if it will help you meet your own photo management goals. Past participants have worked on many projects: sorting, culling, organizing, inventorying, scanning, scrapbooking, creating photo books and more. Some work with printed photos while others work with digital photos. Whatever your photo memory collection needs is a perfect activity for the Workshops.
This is for you IF:
- You know you need to deal with your photo memory collection, but you struggle to get started, or to keep going.
- You enjoy visiting with other family photo keepers – sharing stories, photos, ideas and more.
- You want to get started but worry you won’t know where to start or what to do first, and you’d like some help.
- You’re willing to commit some time to meeting your photo management goals.
This is NOT for you if:
- You don’t want to do the work.
- You plan to leave it all for your kids to figure out.
- You’re not interested in creating a collection that would be meaningful for future generations.
- You already know all the answers and figure you’ll get to it “someday.”
Will this work for my Situation?
This will work for you if you have photo memories that need to be brought up to date, organized, preserved, celebrated or shared. Participants have worked on many projects: sorting, culling, organizing, inventorying for media conversion, scanning, scrapbooking and more. Some work on printed photos while others work on digital photos.
How Often Do the Workshops Occur?
The Workshops occur once per month, on the 4th Saturday of the month. However, my goal is to serve those who want the help, so I am open to discussing different options and dates.
How long are the Workshops?
They run from 12 noon Mountain Time until 8:30 pm MT. You do not have to stay for the entire time. I do it this way so that people with busy Saturday schedules or who live in different time zones can catch at least a couple hours each time.
Who leads the Workshops?
I do (Fancy), although they are very informal. We all work on our own projects, and I answer questions and teach processes as needed.
Do I have to leave my camera and mic on while I’m working?
You do whatever makes you most comfortable. Some people leave their camera on, others turn it off, and others have it on most of the time, but may turn it off while eating. As for the mic, we tend to leave those on, unless there is a lot of background noise. But there are no rules either way.
How do I access the Workshops?
Once you register for a workshop, you’ll receive a Zoom link will for the day of the workshop. You may also save the date to an online calendar. In addition, I send out a reminder email that morning with the Zoom link included as I’ve had some software glitches recently. Email me if you have any problems, and we’ll straighten it out.
Why Were the Workshops Created?
Previously in my business I offered in-person Workshops and Classes in my home. In the early 2000s the focus was on scrapbooking and organizing printed photos. As technology changed I added digital organizing and scrapbooking. And, as the scrapbooking market waned, I met more and more people who just needed help doing anything at all with their outdated photo memory collections, including people who lived no where near me. The COVID-19 pandemic pushed me to start offering Virtual Workshops so that I can help as many people as possible.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to make progress on your photo management goals. You can expect empathy and kindness from me and the other Family Photo Keepers. And there are other benefits as well. You can read about them here.
