Learn About Our Manifesto & Beliefs
Created with Community in Mind, Dedicated to the Renewing of your Soul and Business.
“MAKING A HUNDRED FRIENDS IS NOT A MIRACLE. THE MIRACLE IS TO MAKE A SINGLE FRIEND WHO WILL STAND BY YOUR SIDE EVEN WHEN HUNDREDS ARE AGAINST YOU.”
Evolve was started with a simple invitation from one photographer to another, to build connection and friendship in an otherwise lonely creative profession. From those humble beginnings, community events were formed, connections made, and years later we "Evolved" into educational based events. While the art of photography connected us, there was so much more that we wanted to create and share. We didn't just want artists leaving with beautiful imagery, but we wanted them to leave with the tools it took to be successful.
Our superpower is helping creatives become the best version of themselves while pursuing the kind of life they actually want.... one with abundant freedom and success.
Today, 6 years later, we host events all over the world, still focused on the community that drew us together from day one, and the tangible education it takes to stand strong in this industry. While our titles and roles have changed over the years, and our team has grown, we are still a small homegrown team helping others out there not feel so alone... We hope you'll join us on our journey as we continue to EVOLVE into who we were meant to be, while we guide and encourage others to be who they were destined to be as well.
Inclusivity of all humans, Authenticity, the willingness to connect, Defining your own version of success, taking time to breathe, giving yourself grace, practicing gratitude, and giving back.
Dividing our community, filling the world with more noise , Bullying, being pretentious, preaching that life and work is about more hustle… and we are NOT about making things boring.
Traveling the world, rolling in the sand, staying up late connecting with friends, sneaking into the pool after hours, re-watching Schitts Creek, laughing too loudly and dancing wildly at all times.
Choosing when to wake up, wrangling business and life, eating pancakes at all hours of the day.
Serial entrepreneur Jamie has run multiple successful companies over the past 15 years. When photography became more than just a passion, Evolve was created so she could be for others what she had always wanted for herself… your industry best friend. Also a mom to 4 humans, 3 dogs.
Noella has been a part of Evolve since joining us in 2020. She helps to run the day to day operations including sponsorships, partnerships, event planning and marketing. When Noella isn't behind her computer, she can be found in her garden, talking to her chickens, watching re runs of Daisy Jones & The Six while dreaming of being near the ocean.
