Photography education for all

THE inclusivity workshop


Inclusivity and community

As I've navigated the world as a queer person I've heard countless stories of photographers not always being a safe space for LGBTQ+ identified folks. Friends feeling unsafe from a photographers actions, not knowing if a photographer is queer friendly, and simply not having their pronouns or identities respected. 

There is a huge need, especially in the Midwest, for education for photographers wanting to truly do justice in serving this community. Thus, The Inclusivity Workshop was born. This workshop is my little love child, something I'm so excited to share with everyone!



Join Liv for an afternoon packed with practical tips and advice for photographers diversifying their client base. Learn best practices for photographing members of the LGBTQ+ community, including how to capture images with respect and inclusivity while avoiding tokenism or privacy intrusions. This workshop will include history, terminology, website reviews, posing tips, and even models for you to photograph after! 

Each session offers at least one scholarship position to offer this education to someone not able to make the financial commitment. For more info click on individual workshop links below to apply.


"I walked in nervous about my first shoot with a same sex couple and after I feel much more prepared! Liv was so helpful in answering all my questions too!" -B

"This was my first workshop experience and I feel like the bar is set high!! Having a more intimate setting was so nice and getting the chance to photograph models put all that I learned into practice" -D
