About This Class
class type: business
Within 7 years, Chellise + Mike quickly and successfully grew as a husband/wife duo to a team of 8 and then said "WTF Are We Doing?", and downsized to a solid 4. Having come full circle from a big crew to a smaller crew, they are here to share the pro's + cons of growth, and the how to's on doing the dang thing. Topics will include creating a culture within your company that photographers are proud to work for, creating your own company handbook, internal contracts, how to coach, when to hire, when to fire, and most importantly, preserving the brand that you spent years building.

Based in Brooklyn, Chellise Michael Photography consists of Chellise, Michael, and their team of bad-ass photographers. Anti-cliche and experimental is their game, promising that you will never see an overly-posed image by this crew. They have a non-abrasive approach to documenting, blending themselves seamlessly into the wedding scene itself, creating images that are naturally poetic and full of feels. With their signature "end-of-the-night" shots and fascination of pushing 35mm film to the extreme with their own self-taught manipulations, they grow stronger every year due to their ambitious curiosity and for ever questioning themselves on how they can push themselves even further both creatively and technically.
