I doubted my abilities before this course, but i definitely am proof that this works!! I did the work and was amazed at how much my community responded! This will be huge for my family!!

-Ashley Seare


as a former full-time photographer, I can relate.

you love your job and everything that it provides for you and your family.

you beam when you put on your camera strap and walk into a shoot. 

but when season slows down, and you've delivered the last photo to your fall clients - panic sets in.

did you do enough to sustain yourself and your family?

winter is coming and, without putting a plan in place, you're going to have more stress than just trying to work when your kids are home on a snow day!

Sparkle Academy will help you set yourself apart from the crowd by diversifying your income, adding value to your community, and blessing your family with increased profits when you teach photography classes.

i’m reaching out my hand… but it’s up to you to take the first step.

The Sparkle Workshops that I have completed have been the best investment in my business hands down! I thought I knew all that I needed to know about running a successful photography business but little did I know there was so much more to learn! After completing my workshops, I had the tools I needed to update my business plan and succeed. My mentality shifted from I can't to I can and the income started {and continued} to roll in. The best part was meeting all of my Sparkle Team Members that are now my best friends! Thank you Cyrissa for your guidance and friendship!

-Kellyn Wilson

your mentor, cyrissa has been seen on:


first, i'll show you best practices in education... while sharing tips and tricks to keep the energy high, the pace manageable, and the classroom a whole lotta fun.

i’m going to share the exact marketing strategies i’ve used to grow my six-figure company and help you avoid the biggest mistakes that most photographers are making.

AND because i know you’re super limited on time, i’m giving you my email templates, customizable workbook templates, powerpoint slide deck, website sales page template, and videos of me teaching my own class in real-time!

we can, literally, have your class up and off the ground in a few days.

no other workshop out there gives you ALL the tools you need to succeed and helps you bring your beginning photography class to life this quickly.

Here's what I'll cover in the course...

    learn to introspectively look at your heart and your business, then use those insights to design a course that enables you to teach with joy!

    before you can design your content, you need to decide how you’ll teach your class!  large-group?  one-on-one?  multi-day?  discover what’s right for you!

    most photographers make their classes WAY too advanced.  let’s discuss what people really want to know and create curriculum based upon their prior knowledge.

    in order to effectively teach you need to understand learning modalities, how the brain works, and teaching techniques that the pros use every day!

    this is the most overlooked, but important, lesson of them all!  understand the role your website, workbook, slide deck, location & learning extensions play in your business.

    evaluate what you’ll offer, the value you’ll add to your student’s lives, and time you’ll spend away from your family.  this is a hot topic but i’ll tell you exactly what’s worked for me!

    craft a series of offers that speak to the heart of your ideal student, build a rapport with your audience, and nurture them before you ask for the sale.

    this is the important stuff!  learn how to leverage your community, integrate ads, design email sequences & define your refund policies.

    what exactly do you say and do when you have a classroom full of students?  let me show you how i pace my class, get them talking, allow for questions, and give them plenty of time to apply what they’re learning.

    the beautiful part about teaching a workshop is that once you’ve taught it once, you can repeat the exact content over and over!  learn how to keep that momentum going & ensure high enrollment!

    in total: several hours of amazing content; all video based to make it easy for you to watch {or listen} wherever your busy life takes you!

    What's included...

    • 7 videos, 10-40 minutes each, all protected by an online membership site!
    • all videos are unlocked after registration! no waiting!
    • lifetime access & updates to the program!
    • access to our private facebook group with other academy alumni!
    • videos of cyrissa teaching her class LIVE {our most requested bonus}!
    • customizable workbook templates to save you time!
    • workshop marketing email swipe copy {you can copy and paste}!
    • social media posts to help you promote your class & fill seats!
    • customizable powerpoint slide deck that complements the workbook!

      How do you know if you're right for the program?

      • you feel comfortable with photography & your camera!
      • you have a definite slow season in your business {but still need income}!
      • sometimes, after photoshoots, your body is tired & achy.
      • you love teaching others how to use their camera!
      • you wish photoshoots weren't the ONLY way to create an income!
      • you are motivated and willing to work hard to develop a class!
      • you want to leave a legacy & impact the world with your photography gifts!
      • you could use an extra $1,000-3,000 a month in your family budget.
      • you don't have time to run around online and figure this out on your own!
      • you want your business to be a BLESSING and not a burden on your life!

      this workshop was designed for photographers who feel comfortable with the technical side of photography and are ready to help others.  we will focus on teaching an in-person class and will NOT be working through the logistics of creating an online class.  if you don't have the time to devote to curriculum development and embrace new ways of growing your company or don't want to teach in-person, this probably isn't the workshop for you!  want to know for sure?  send me an email and let's chat!  cyrissa@immersephotography.com

      "it's too hard."
      "won't i be training my competitors?"
      "i can't teach."


      all things that I've heard from well-meaning photographers telling me that teaching a photo class is not going to work for them.

      well, i'm here to tell you - you're wrong.

      myself, and countless others have taken the plan laid out in my program and added thousands of dollars to our bank accounts.

      now look, if you decide keep playing small, if you want to keep holding yourself, your family and your business back, then i can't stop you.

      but please, don't let the little voices in your head stop you from getting what you want and deserve.

      let that sink in for a moment.  in order for your business to grow, you've got to try different strategies, surround yourself with women who are on the same trajectory towards success, and find a mentor who knows the exact steps you need to take in order to catapult you ahead of the competition.

      how much stress would disappear if you knew exactly what to do to bring in extra income - without draining your mind and body with another photo shoot?

      it's possible, with the help of the Sparkle Academy!

      i believe in you enough for the both of us. let's make this happen for you. 

      i’ll see you in class.

      Your Questions, Answered!

      Cyrissa is a highly trained teacher and pro photographer in Ohio.  She's earned a Master's of Art Education, boasts ten years of classroom experience, and has thousands of students in her online communities. You'll benefit from the data she's learned from almost ten years of teaching beginning photo classes.  Learn how to teach photography in your very own workshop; with style and success!

      Will it work?

      While I firmly believe in trusting your gut, I do NOT believe in letting limiting beliefs and/or fear control you. That's not the best way to look at an investment that could potentially transform your business.  Listening to that little voice in your head that’s asking you over and over: “Will this work? Is this the answer? What if it doesn’t work for me? How is this really different from everything else I’ve tried before?" may be holding you back from success.

      Here’s the thing: the investment you’re about to make in Sparkle Academy isn’t really a business investment - it’s an investment in yourself.

      I can’t categorically promise that Sparkle Academy will work for you or that I can help change your life – only you have control over that.

      What I can promise is that the content I teach in this program has worked for me personally as well as dozens of others who have applied these lessons and seen the difference that it has made to the bottom lines of their businesses.

      I’m just not sure I’m ready to make this investment…

      I totally get that investing in yourself can feel challenging and frivolous even, especially if you’ve already invested tons in coaching and other tools to run your business this year.

      You might feel like Sparkle Academy is a huge investment right now and I get it - other students have felt the same way in the past too.

      But what I also know is that after those same students started working through the program, growing their customer base and making sales that they could trace right back to their marketing efforts, they felt that investing in Sparkle Academy was one of the best decisions they could have ever made.

      If you can get just a handful of people to register for your first class, this workshop will pay for itself.  And not just once.  Over and over again, every time you teach your class.


      How do I pay?

      You can purchase Sparkle Academy with any major credit card.


      I’m enrolled!  What happens next?

      Once your purchase is complete you’ll be sent your login details to the Sparkle Academy membership site. Take the opportunity to set yourself up for success by blocking out time to actually do the work. The program is available instantly upon purchase.


      What if I find the program isn’t for me?  Can I get a refund?

      I truly believe in the power of this program and have witnessed first-hand the extraordinary results that our students get after taking Sparkle Academy. This workshop was lovingly created and the content taught is based upon what I’ve learned while earning my Masters degree in art education, spending ten years in the classroom, and eight years of experience teaching beginning photo classes.

      It’s all based in fact, data and professional experience.  I’m confident that asking for a refund will never cross your mind, but if it does, I’m offering you a 30-day money back guarantee.  As this workshop only works if you do, you must provide evidence that you have completed all the trainings and made a good-faith effort to complete the tasks outlined in the workshop.


      Do I have to participate in the Facebook group?

      Not if you don’t want to, but know that this is where you’re going to form sparkly friendships AND be able to connect directly with me, Cyrissa and the Sparkle Team.  If you choose not to take part in the Facebook group, do so knowing you’ll almost certainly be missing out!

      What if I don't know InDesign and only know Photoshop? Can I get the workbook in a Photoshop Template?

      No, we don't offer it in Photoshop because that's not what Photoshop was designed for. InDesign is the best program to make sure your workbook is full of great content and beautiful. If you want help with your workbook design, you can work with my designer at a greatly reduced fee. Just think, if you can register ONE extra person in your workshop, you could hire her and have a beautiful branded workbook. And I promise, that's worth every penny!

      I'm ready to diversify income streams for my business, support my family {even in the slow season}, and use my gifts to bless and enable other photography enthusiasts!
