    Olga is a great artist and great teacher. All the materials of this breakout are just amazing, the shooting vidos are so detailed, Olga explains everything, the pdfs are full of useful information. The way she explains things and all creative exercises make you rethink about your photogrpahy and helps you to go forward. Olga is very inspiring and generous.

  • Olga is so generous with her time and knowledge, and I learned so much from this breakout. She provided a “bonus” couples pdf that I absorbed right before I shot some maternity photos for my friend (first time doing this), and those images just really exceeded anything that I have done prior. Olga’s passion really sticks with you, and I’m excited to keep learning from her because all the material she provided will continue to be a reference point for me moving forward. I highly recommend anyone from any level to get this breakout.

    Wow O Wow, Olga poured her heart and soul into this breakout. Today is THE LAST DAY to get it at the discounted price, so if you are at all interested or on the fence you will not be disappointed. There is soooo much information from her huge ebook that I have not been able to get all the way through and from shooting videos and editing videos, this breakout was amazing. I highly recommend it.

  • Heather Nowak says:

    Gosh, where to start?! Olga is truly inspiring. She has really put her whole heart and soul into this breakout. I can tell that she has poured over every.single.detail.

  • Tania Fragoso says:

    I have admired Olga’s work for sometime now and as soon as I heard she had a new BO I had to pre register to have access from day 1! I could not be more satisfied and impressed with the quality and level of commitment that Olga has poured into this BO, the pdf is full of valuable information, and the bonus of having her insight and knowledge shared is priceless.
    This is one BO that I’m sure I will keep coming back to and learn something new every single time.

  • Olga is one of those photographers that when you see her work it just stops you in your tracks and you wonder HOW does she do that?? When I saw Olga was coming out with a breakout I knew I had to be there to see what her process was. I found this class at the right time during my own personal photography journey. I understand the technical basics but I know my photography is lacking something that isn’t tangible that I couldn’t put my finger on. I’ve heard many great photographers say that you need to find your VOICE. Well I never understood what that meant until this breakout! The first few pages of the eBook had me hooked. Olga is an amazing teacher and I can tell she really put her heart and soul into the materials of this class. I feel that she really wants everyone to succeed and be the best photographer they can be. I’m so glad I found this course and can’t wait to practice what I’ve learned.

  • As soon as I read Olga was releasing a breakout I knew that I had to be apart of it! Olga’s work is beautiful with such a timeless feel. I’ve followed her on social media for a long time, admiring her work. I’m so happy that I went ahead and purchased the BO because it’s truly wonderful. She has so much valuable information to share and teach. I’m still working my way through the PDF! She speaks a lot about finding your own voice and I believe that is so important. If you’re looking to improve your skills, find your own style or take your art to the next level I highly recommend this BO

  • Molly says:

    Olga shares her heart and soul in her breakouts. Such fantastic information and a way of thinking when you shoot. Worth every penny.

  • Patri Rego says:

    This breakout has been a wonderful self-discovery journey for me. I have enjoyed so much the given materials! It’s been great being able to see Olga in action, learn from her like if you where there. I’m so glad a took this breakout! It has exceeded my expectations. It’s obvious that Olga loves what she does, she does it well and she has shared it with us. I just want to say thank you Olga for giving me the opportunity to go one step further!

  • Charmaine says:

    This breakout has been phenomenal. The information is incredible and you can tell that Olga has poured her heart into this. I love how she tells and gives us the tools to be able to visualize our voice and connect with how we see an image. Also included are her great presets that enhance and transforms your images. This is one breakout that I wish can be offered live many times over. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and seen throughout the multiple live chats and questions answered. Have you seen her images? they are breathtaking and this breakout gives you the ability to turn your voice into strong breathtaking images too.

  • Cary Ann Krogsgaard says:

    I preregistered for this class knowing I couldn’t possibly miss an opportunity to hear what this amazing photographer had to share. Her images are compelling and soulful. I was thrilled to discover that Olga is as well. She is so gracious & offers students not only her knowledge but also her heart. This class has taught me to be more vulnerable & honest in my photography. It has also taught me to be more comfortable accepting & expressing my “voice”. I highly suggest that anyone interested in taking their photography & artistry to the next level should definitely take this breakout. Thank you so much Olga for sharing so much of yourself & your knowledge with us. :)

  • Ani says:

    Olga is amazing!! Such a sweet person, so selfless and giving. She shares so much on her break out to really help everyone find our own unique voice. The PDF is very detailed and guides you to do an introspective discovery to find out who you are and what do you want your photos to say. It is mind blowing! I truly enjoyed all of the videos, the live chats, I learned so much from her critiques and guidance. She is an open book so eager to help. I love it! Oh, and the included presets are gorgeous. Definitely worth so much more than what I paid for this break out. Thank you, Olga so much

  • Martine Altena says:

    This Bo is the first BO that gave me so much clarity. Olga brings it al back to the photographer who is reading this BO. She doesn’t teach to be like her. But she inspires to find your self. There are so many helpful exercises in this BO. you really have to search your soul, starting with the big question, why do you photograph. I have followed a few BO but never was I touched in this way. Thank you Olga. I hope you will have a big future in teaching people. Hopefully also online :) I hope you will touch people the way you touched me and connect them with there authentic voice.

    • Olga Levien says:

      Oh thank you so much Martine! Your words are so touching and I have tears reading your wonderful words! This mean world to me! Im so glad we connected through this class!

  • Murielle Cascone says:

    As soon as I heard about Olga’s breakout I knew I wanted to sign up! And at that price! I love her work so much and her hub on IG @tales.of.the.moment! Her knowledge, her feedback, her videos are invaluable!! I wanted to know everything about her process. This breakout gives you of all that and more! Such a great value! And Olga is so nice and amazing! Thank you Olga!

  • Andrea James says:

    I’ve joined this breakout very late, but I’m devoting a chunk of my day today to really immerse myself in it.The content so far looks fab, and I’m a big fan of Olga’s photography style so can’t wait to get involved!

  • Lisa Briand says:

    I really didn’t have time to devote to this breakout but I couldn’t let it pass me by! I adore Olga’s work and was really excited to see what she had to share about her journey and her process. This breakout has not disappointed! The PDF is awesome and really has made me think about my voice and the photos that I strive to produce. I am really excited to go through the material again and again.

  • Cami Turpin says:

    I preregistered for this breakout as soon as it was available because I just couldn’t wait to see what Olga had to teach me about making more meaningful moments in my photography! I have done so many breakouts, I sometimes wonder if there’s really anything more to learn, but each time I’m surprised, and this time was no exception. I am learning so much and becoming much more intentional and thoughtful in how I approach my sessions, both personal and professional. I love how much Olga reminds us to be true to ourselves and trust ourselves and really find out who we are and how we can find our voice. Last night I was prepping for my first all-film photo session and I was so nervous I couldn’t sleep. I read part of the breakout while my mind was racing and I got to a section on trusting myself and trusting my instincts, not listening to what I was “supposed” to shoot and just shoot for me. It was just what I needed to hear going into this session where I knew I’d be so focused on settings and readings and light. And her personal feedback is so amazing as she pushes each of us to go just a bit further to truly create memorable and meaningful moments in our photography. I also love the presets, and I’m sure I’ll be using them frequently. Thank you so much Olga! It feels like you’ve given us a piece of your soul in this breakout.

    • Olga Levien says:

      Thank you so much Cami! Im so thrilled with all participants joined, you are truly amazing! I appreciate your kind words and cant wait to see more of your work that you shot following your Voice! Way to go!

  • Nicki Osbaldiston says:

    Tales of the Moment was my first ever breakout and such a boost to my personal and client sessions. So inspirational! Olga shares her heart, her techniques, her tips and her expert knowledge is such a relaxed, friendly way that you feel like you are receiving one on one mentoring. I was able to test out some of her ideas during a recent engagement shoot, my clients absolutely loved the results and so did I! Thanks Olga for investing so much into others!

  • Sunshine Miller says:

    Wow!! I love this BO Olga is an amazing photographer, i have really enjoyed reading her ebook and watching the videos. Im fairly new to photography but this breakout has opened my way of thinking about my work and the purpose of it. Im sad it will be ending as i love seeing everyones work in the challenges, and Olgas feedback to them. What an inspiration, thank you Olga!

  • Sophie says:

    This breakout totally exceeded my expectations! Olga is obviously an incredibly talented photographer but her passion for helping others find their voice is so inspiring and motivating… I cannot wait to get out there and shoot with some new perspective!! Olga really has poured her heart and soul into this breakout and there is such a wealth of information here I will be referring back to it for a long time, I’m sure!

  • I have been a huge fan of Olga’s work, in fact I wish I could get married again so she can do my wedding photography!
    It has been amazing getting this valuable insight from such a talent and the openness Olga comes with is amazing. I have learnt a lot from the materials and the exercises Olga sets give you a deeper way of thinking, creating and challenging yourself. I would highly recommend this forum and course to anyone wanting to up their game.
    Olga thank you so much for pouring your heart and soul into this and really caring!!

  • Megan says:

    This class is an amazing value!! Olga provided so much valuable information as well as some presets! I think my favorite part of how Olga taught is that she did provide so much information about her own Style but she helps you to focus on your own style and what you want to say with your photos. She also provides great excercises that I have definitely noticed have opened my eyes to things I was not noticing before. I’m so glad that I signed up for this breakout!!

  • Lindse Leatham says:

    The breakout has been amazing. You can see and tell all the love, heart and soul Olga has poured into this. Olga takes younout of your comfort zone and pushes you tonrealt find your inner voice and what it means to you. This is one of the longest breakouts I have exprerienced. Lots of great challengers and exercises to keep you ingaged.

  • Helen says:

    This is my first break out and what a break out it is. It makes you think about every inch of your work. It leaves nothing unexplained, Olga pours everything she has into this course. It is worth well more then I paid for it. Olga is amazing, this course is easy to read and thought provoking. If you want a challenge and to learn more about what your work says about you, dive in. You will not regret it.

  • Mer Markopoulos says:

    This breakout has exceeded my every expectation. Olga has poured her entire heart, soul, and life into creating meaningful content and then teaches, mentors & inspires new and professional photographers to more fully understand ourselves to create art we turly love. She shares her own story with such honesty and openness, holding nothing back, to help us examine our own motivations and grow in self-awareness to identify and articulate our own unique voice, then provides tactical information on how to convey that in our imagery. She’s provided an abundance of thoughtful material and I know I’ll be referring to it long after the live session ends. We’ve covered light, photographic elements, storytelling, emotion, and connection, but more importantly, Olga teaches us how to think more deeply, to analyze ourselves and our work, and do the personal, internal work that causes growth in all aspects of art and life. I’m absolutely inspired to pick up my camera and doing so armed with the authenticity of knowing what my voice is and from where it derived. This could’ve easily been a full workshop.

    • Olga Levien says:

      Oh Mer, Im so glad to hear such a great feedback! You described it perfectly, everything that I poured in this class, my heart and my soul! Im so glad you hear you will continue your discoveries! Can’t wait to see what future brings!

  • Adrienne says:

    Olga is simply amazing. She shares so much of herself and how she gets the images she visualizes. She is also very prompt at answering any questions and does not hesitate to help you. This breakout is simply amazing!

  • jennifer says:

    This breakout is incredible! It is obvious that Olga has poured her heart and soul into this, her PDF’s are so full of information and exercises to really get you thinking about YOUR photographic voice. She guides you into deeper thinking and really makes you view your photography in a new way. This is a very inspirational breakout that has encouraged me to dig deeper into my photographic voice and what i am trying to convey. So glad I decided to join during the live run! Olga has been very hands on and giving great and very honest feedback to every participant.

  • Lucia Vaquero says:

    Olga is pushing me forward to improve storytelling. I’m not a patient person and this is so important if you really want to grab that moment, those connections. This BO is a gift for 25$, so join us during the live run and get the most out of it!

    • Olga Levien says:

      Oh thank you so much Lucia! Our LIVE run is truly amazing! Love to chat with you on our LIVE meetings and see each other, discuss all questions, ideas and beyond! You are so amazing!

  • Nasreen says:

    I was looking forward to Olga’s BO because I knew she would go all in, and she hasn’t disappointed! The pdf goes into detail about her personal approach and emphasizes the importance of discovering and using your unique voice. There are a lot of shooting videos, which show just how she moves around a scene and what she’s thinking as she shoots, so valuable! Participants have shared pictures using the included presets, which are gorgeous! I was sad that I wouldn’t be shooting during the live run because I have my arm in a cast, but the forum has been fun and active, with Olga providing lots of feedback and encouraging participants to find our voices. She is a very generous teacher who is really invested in this BO and her enthusiasm is contagious! I have already discovered more about myself and my voice. Join during the live run to get access to Olga and all the great feedback and shares on the forum – a steal at $25!

  • Bec Lowe says:

    I’m a woman of few words, Olga, however, is fantastic.  Her breakout is in depth with a wealth of technical information as well as inspiration.  The feedback is wonderful & really encouraging, her creative exercises stretch you in a good way & help you grow as an artist.   Olga is a great teacher who gets you to really connect with your emotions of why you shoot & how to portray that in your images as well as capturing the moment.  Can not recommend her breakout enough  

  • Olga promises to be an open book with this break out and she truly does leave nothing behind. She bares her soul, sharing personal experiences and a life’s learning and she encourages you to do the same. She challenges each participant to dig deep, discovering your “why” and the moments and memories that have shaped you. In doing so she helps participants to develop and understand their personal style and sense of self. She covers movement, voice, light, design and so much more, unlocking the elements that you need to think about in order to create the perfect image. The end game is giving you the confidence to see moments clearly, to visualise and anticipate what might come next and be ready to take that next great shot. Purchase this break out and you’re essentially unlocking a career’s worth of study, exploration and experience.

    I am so impressed with all the info that Olga shares in her breakout. I found the shootingvideos (there are 6 of them) especially useful. The PDF breaks down the process behind finding your style and tips on how to achieve the look you want. Olga talks alot about feeling the moment and shooting they way you love and I just find that so inspiring. As someone in business, I am sure this will help me when photographing families. This is such good value and I am so happy I decided to join!

    I have admired Olga’s work for a very long time and always in LOVE with everything she creates. The storytelling, the emotions, the connections; they take me away to make me feel what the couples, or the subject might have felt..I am absolutely loving the PDF with so so much information on her explanation on what she does and why, the psychology of connections and how she approaches with a vision and I am amazed and just wowed even more! So so good! Cannot wait to start watching her videos as well..This is an amazing opportunity for those that are still deciding; get on it and learn from the best, Olga Levien!

    Olga… you are one of a kind. So generous. Your breakout is a window on your soul. I hope all the planet will grab a seat.
