The Creative Sustainability Glowup

Learn from one of the industry's best how to create exactly what you love, despite what the obvious trends are in the industry.

 

Oftentimes, we allow the market to dictate our actions, between how we photograph, who we photograph, what we decide to share on social media, and who we desire to work with. The truth is, that’s not the key to success for longevity. It is, however, the key to getting stuck, feeling uninspired, and burnt out.

 

Avoid the obvious photo and challenge yourself to anticipate and see moments play out before you. Capture the true emotions and moments of the day, and keep yourself inspired to create images that are compelling and dynamic.

We are creatives and business owners—just like you. And we're on a mission to make photography education approachable, actionable, and downright fun.
We have over three decades of combined experience. And we provide expert know-how on damn near any photography or business-related topic.

"A priceless view of who we are and wouldn’t exist without his gifted shutter, lens, and eye."
“What I love about John’s pictures is how his lovely soul comes through in the moments he sees in other people. John has photographed our family for 20 years. It is, to us, a priceless view of who we are and wouldn’t exist without his gifted shutter, lens and eye.” 
—Jerry Seinfeld

What People Are Saying

Allee Joplin
“This Glowup breathed FRESH LIFE into my lungs. I went back through the years of my work and got re-inspired by my own captures. When I started, I was all about chasing the emotion, the memory, the moment…and somewhere along the way, I got lost in chasing the fluff and beauty of an event (which I still and will always love). But what really really sets my heart on fire are these captures. I am deeply grateful for the spirit, heart, and words that came out of John’s teaching.”

“John Dolan encourages his subjects to be bold, to show their emotions, and to allow his lens to capture private as well as more open moments. Years ago no bride would allow a photographer in the dressing room or bedroom, but now some of the most coveted moments are captured in those rooms. John has shown us what is possible in the many ways he has made wedding photography a true art form, competing perfectly with painters of old, who barely had time to do one sketch of the betrothed couple to paint at a later date.”
