The creative world just got a whole lot easier & a whole lot better. Basecamp is an online platform that helps photographers build a thriving business through powerful courses, accountability, and insight from industry experts.


Basecamp is for the creative who is looking to consistently grow in their craft, client experience, and business expertise. It’s for the creative who is eager to navigate entrepreneurship while in community with other people.

As photographers, we have a lot of skills that need to be mastered. Basecamp is here to help you learn the ropes to these skills alongside peers and mentors who are in the thick of the entrepreneurial journey, just like you.

welcome to, 

Creatives, listen up.

Learning the art of photography takes a lot of time, effort, and investment. It’s not something you can learn overnight (or by yourself). 

Running a Business 101 wasn’t a thing in school, and if it was, it sure didn’t teach us the ropes of being a creative business owner. 

Balancing life, sessions, editing, and building up your business sometimes feels like one too many things to juggle.




You aren’t alone. There isn’t a one size fits all fix, but Basecamp is here to fill in the gaps with ongoing education and the guidance you need.

Moral of the story? The creative world can be tough.

For $39!? YES.

I’ve gained so much confidence, my client experience just keeps getting better and better, and I’ve gotten an immense amount of guidance in every aspect of my business! In the 6 months we’ve been working together I’ve booked 17 weddings and elopements, all of which is over $61,000 worth of bookings. That’s in 6 months alone!! 🤯 I’ve raised my prices over $1000 and have found that at my higher price point my clients are adding even more to their packages. The value has always been there, but I’ve since gained the confidence to finally sell it fully! I’m absolutely on my way to hitting 6 figures this year and I’m so freaking excited!!

 "I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for Dawn and my time with her"

As someone who has now been a full-time photographer for 7 years, I am SO aware of the grit, skill, and mental strength it takes to be a creative. For so long, I held myself back in an effort to keep to myself and stay in my own lane. In recent years, I’ve made it my mission to pour into community and creativity more fully, and I want more than anything to pass that along to you. That’s exactly why Basecamp was created: to be accessible, affordable, and helpful for any and all creatives who are searching for a push in achieving their dreams and goals.

Imposter syndrome and a lack of accountability held me back for wayyy too long. 

Dawn, here…
Founder & Lead Educator behind Basecamp.

An accessible, ever-evolving course library and community education platform for creatives chasing after a successful photography business. If straight-to-the-point, comprehensive education at an affordable price is what you’re after, Basecamp is the missing piece you’re looking for in your creative career.
