Sparkle Academy was so transformative–both professionally and personally. This workshop provided me with everything I needed to teach my own photography class and will long remain a high point of my life. Thanks again…. I am feeling energized and eager to continue teaching my classes regularly, you made it so easy for me and I can’t wait to use all of my new teaching tools. I will absolutely recommend this workshop to other photographers!

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!!

Hey, Love Muffin!

Want to learn to to effectively teach photo classes, using the same strategies I used to leverage in my elementary art classroom?  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!

But you and I both know it doesn’t stop there!  You’ve got to learn how to promote your new class and fill those seats!  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 even going to share my email templates, customizable workbook templates, powerpoint slide deck, website sales page template, and videos of me teaching my own class in real-time!  Yup - you get ALL of those things included in your Sparkle Academy tuition and we can, literally, have your class up and off the ground in a few hours! 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!

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 Sparkle Academy 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 bookings and income started and continue 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!

i am no longer worried about having the perfect place to hold a course!! I am currently putting all of these lessons into place and i will make an extra $4,000 during the next slow season thanks to Sparkle Academy!! With that kind of income increase and so little time… how can you afford NOT to take this course?!

create your own photo class now!

i'm going to show you how to teach a photography class & develop your curriculum in 12 comprehensive lessons.  once finished, you'll have designed you very own photo course specifically for beginner photographers {soccer moms, hobby photographers, and business owners}!  here's what i'll teach ya!

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!

Rejoicing Rebecca Photography

i’m pumped to have another tool in my tool-belt when it comes to finding ways to make money for my family!! I’ve already done the legwork from the lessons, and am ready to make my own workshop happen!

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 eight 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. This is also where we'll be providing the links to all your bonuses, templates and downloads.  We will not be emailing out individuals links and you'll not find them on the website.  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!

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
