    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.

  • 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 wasn’t familiar with Olga’s work before signing up for this breakout. But as soon as I clicked on the class description, I knew it was for me! Already this breakout is full of so much enthusiasm! We have just started but we have already jumped in the deep end. Olga is asking the hard questions and forcing us to turn the focus on ourselves. Our voice, our why, our vision. The materials are gorgeous. Olga is intimate and raw in her photography and it is INSPIRING! She is an artist to the core and I am honored to be learning from her.

    I am always fascinated by how much emotion Olga can convey in her work. Sometimes it makes me blush, I feel like I have stumbled into someone’s intimate moment. I couldn’t resist this beak out from such a wonderful artist. Olga is so open with her knowledge and experience and feels like an encouraging friend helping me to dig deeper. The pdf is full of technical information as well as inspiration, and I can not wait to watch her videos. I am excited to jump into the exercises and take full advantage of Olga during the breakout!

  • Jyotsna Bhamidipati says:

    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 Levien says:

      Thank you so much Jyo! Im so glad you enjoying all materials, I poured all my knowledge, my heart and my soul in this class! SO excited to see what this journey will bring!

  • If you want to dig deep, if you want to put your feet on your voice journey and if you want a mentor to help you through this, well hurry up before this break out stops being live!

    If you always wanted to walk a mile in her shoes, you now can! Go watch her shooting and editing videos.

    It’s a lifetime deal that won’t never come back. Do the exercises, share your work, take Olga’s critics and then shoot again with them in mind, or in less words: shoot, share, learn, repeat.

    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.
