With the choose your own adventure, you can come for a day, days or a class. But regardless you're going to leave inspired and elevated to a new level... Keep reading for details. 


With over 30 years of fashion styling collectively under their belt, Jamie Findlay and Jon Taylor Sweet will utilize their brand collaborations, styling team support, as well as the support of other artists to oversee the curation of two days worth of shoots that promise to be a reflection of their high end, high fashion work. Couples and portrait models will be available both days so you can choose to shoot what works for you and your portfolio and customize the looks you need for growth.

Since its Iceland and the light is stunning all day long we will have multiple sessions going on at each location for several hours to allow you time to shoot until your heart's content.

Each day will have a totally different location for many different Icelandic locations for you to add to your portfolios {as well as several shoots at each location}.

He is now one of the most loved creators on Instagram, with nearly 200K followers tuning in for his unique editorial imagery from around the world.

Hi I'm Morgan, your friendly neighborhood tattooed, bold, dog-loving, editorial wedding, couple, and family photographer based in Salt Lake City. My whole vibe is described as gritty elegance. A touch of Vogue mixed with the fluidity of human connection. Editorial makes my heart sing. The lines that create depth, the pose that might feel funky but tells the story, the edgy mixed with the soft, and the bringing your vision to life through composition that is fresh and new. I’m so excited to help you expand your idea of what editorial is and what it can be! Get ready for a good time!

This Masterclass with Jamie Findlay is a High Fashion Bridal session full of drama, movement, and magazine worthy imagery. Utilizing the Icelandic elements we will tell a story from start to finish as well as incorporating the stunning views and backgrounds Iceland has to offer.  You'll learn the way that I not only shoot for a bride looking for this type of dramatic photography, but also for bridal brands and magazines looking for high end editorial work. This is a unique 1:1 experience for those looking to elevate their shooting style, and get into creating high end photographs. 

Bridal Editorial Masterclass

Jamie Findlay

Welcome to my Family Master Class! I believe that the softest moments are captured in the midst of the chaos, and that’s where I thrive. My favorite part of family sessions is that I get to create an un-rushed experience that recalibrates the focus to the number one priority: their stories. My approach to these shoots is to rediscover the honesty of the energy — the genuine nature of family dynamics; no forced smiles, no fake laughs, and no hurry.

Branding Masterclass with JTS | This shoot will take you inside my brain in how I conceptually create content for a brand. We will be creating content in real time for a client of mine in the idea of creating assets that can live on digital platforms.

You will get a 1 of 1 experience that has yet be done with me and I am truly excited to let you into my creative process for making relevant and purposeful content for a brand.

I thought the styled shoots were CRAZY good (LIKE REALY REALLY GOOD) and they totally exceeded my expectations. Jamie’s styling skills of the gorgeous models was beyond and I died at each one bc they looked SO DANG GOOD. Many of the images I created at Evolve are some of my absolute favorite to date and I honestly feel that they helped me grow as a photographer and grow my brand by helping me create such awesome content for social media and my website.

The inspiration was mind-blowing

"This event has me on a creative high. I feel like I learned invaluable information and it has left a mark on me forever. Connecting with other creatives was just as inspiring if not more than the educators. This event alone has made me rework my thought process about my business and inspired me beyond my expectations."


-India earl -

It's just like a little family. It's weird how people can be strangers for one day, and then all of a sudden we're just like really good friends... It's just kind of fun because we all get so close so fast. I met some of my very best friends at workshops, and I'm still very close with all the girls I met at Evolve before. SO I just want to keep coming back for that. 

Just like family

Getting here




things to do

Iceland is an incredible country to explore! From natural hot springs to volcanos, whale watching tours to the bustling city of Reykjavik, we definitely recommend spending extra time getting to know all that Iceland has to offer. Iceland is also a quick flight away from many other European countries if you choose to add on more cities to your trip!

Behind the Scenes of the 2021 Iceland Retreat

Is this a workshop?

Content series are offered around the world and it is NOT a workshop, nor is it intended to run like one. Unlike a workshop where we have multiple days, dinners, bonding to connect, a content series and the connections that come from it are really up to you and the effort you put in. We’ve seen lifelong friendships come from these, but it's all about how you use your time during and after the event that matters! You can choose to attend 1 shoot or all 3 days. Its up to you! Educators on hand all 3 days to help guide and teach.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I know ahead of time?

Prepare yourself with a good attitude, and a willingness to grow. Unlike sessions you shoot yourself, you will be in a group setting with other photographers shooting at the same time.

Kindness and patience is key to making the best of it. We do have staff on hand ensuring people are taking time to allow others to shoot at every station, BUT it is up to you to come knowing that you’re going to want to maximize your time with each model, and that you’re willing to voice any needs you might have while you’re there. We have NEVER once had an issue at these events, but it is important you come understanding it is a group shooting event.

We encourage you to be intentional with your shots, get creative, collaborate with your group to capture something new and unique! The best part of these events… you have absolutely no obligation to deliver the images, so take a deep breath, relax and get creative!

What should I bring?

Literally anything you’d like to try out, prisms, fabric to shoot through, new lenses etc Iceland is also fickle weather so bring good sturdy walking shoes you don’t mind if they get wet, as well as a warm jacket/ sweater {layers are best}, and a rain jacket goes a long way! May generally is about 55 degrees for the high, so be prepared to keep yourself comfortable.

Unfortunately we cannot control the weather, so come prepared as well with waterproof coverings for your gear, hand warmers, water etc. If bad weather does happen we will roll with the punches, rotate models in and out of dry conditions, shoot for longer, etc… We will do our best to make it epic no matter what!

How large are groups?

We try to keep groups to a 5 person max, but it really depends on the number of sign up’s. The more people we have the longer the shoot time will be, and more shoots we will procure so don’t allow this to stress you.

Is transportation provided?

Because this is not a workshop everyone is responsible for their own food, travel, and transportation. We will not provide anything apart from the shoots on site and the educational components. However, we will give you an awesome PDF after signing up that gives you information on getting around, where to stay, what to expect etc. as well as access to the FB group to coordinate room and ride sharing.

shoot uS an email

We completely understand. Every dollar invested in your business is an important one! Let's chat it out and see if this course will benefit you!
