our advanced career acceleratorLet's Do it
Our most immersive, and hands-on program - learn advanced skills, build an incredible portfolio and create a 12-month strategy to start attracting your dream clients, with expert instructors by your side.
Support when you need it most - After the bootcamp you'll have access to a team of experienced mentors guiding you and holding you accountable as you refine your niche and build a thriving photography business.
Get ready for a life-changing 10 days. From the moment you arrive at our Bali campus, all of your needs will be taken care of with chef-prepared meals, daily yoga and an incredibly supportive environment, all designed to get you into the flow state of maximum productivity.
Every element of the program and curriculum was created with an understanding of educational psychology, motivation & human performance to help our students get into the 'flow state' of peak performance. We take care of every little detail so that you can focus on what you came here to do – learn.
Forget giant classrooms, we accept only 16 students and bring 4 experienced mentors per session so you know you’ll have the one-on-one attention you need to thrive.
Rather than sitting in a classroom, you'll learn advanced skills through live photoshoots, develop your own photography style, and master every step of your workflow. And it’s in those moments standing side-by-side with an experienced instructor, where the real magic happens and it all just clicks.
During your 10-day we have created an environment designed to help you get in the flow state and focus on learning.
When we went hunting for the perfect villa, we had a check-list as long as our arm. Right at the very top was location, not necessarily how close it was to the best bars, shops and beach (although it hits all those boxes too) but the environment around it - we wanted lots of trees and big open areas of grass to help bring a sense of calm and relaxation so you could thrive.
We wanted little areas for our students to be able to sit and study while listening to the birds, not the hum of an air-conditoner.
We can’t wait for you to meet our little slice of paradise and call it home for 10 incredible days!
You might be wondering why on earth a school teaching photography & web development is doing daily yoga & meditation and the reason is that it's proven to have strong mental and physical benefits, paving the way to the best possible learning experience & at the end of the day, that’s what we are all about.
Although it's optional, we highly recommend everyone has a go! Our amazing instructor has come up with a super fun and easy program, so why not make the most of it!
Part of each yoga session includes mindful meditation to help calm the mind and prepare it for a full day of learning.
We believe that nourishing food helps you learn, and our in-house chef team are on hand all day to whip up delicious meals.
Think smoothie bowls, smashed avocado or a big stack of crunchy corn fritters and poached eggs for breakfast. For lunch and dinner, we go family-style whipping up a spread of healthy options (and some naughty treats of course), with every meal being different. Ranging from traditional Indonesian to mouth-watering tex-mex, to an Italian feast. We guarantee you’ll never go hungry or be bored of the food at IOC.
We also know that not everyone can eat everything, so we make sure that there are always vegetarian / vegan / low carb / low-fat options on hand - catering to most specific dietary requirements (including allergies and gluten-free).
4:1 mentor ratio - let that sink in for a moment.
You will only have to share an expert mentor with 3 other students - that’s one of the best ratios in the business (not that we are counting). That means that when you have a question, you won’t have to sit there with your arm in the air hoping you will get your question answered.
And when it comes to our mentors, they aren’t just another PhD student with zero real-world experience, your mentor is actively working in the industry with years of knowledge that has been where you are and can help guide you every step of the way.
We LOVE this island and think it's far too stunning not to share. So over the course of the 10-days, we will be out exploring and shooting some of the most varied and breathtaking scenery Bali has to offer - the perfect mix of learning and exploration.
We will be hunting down epic waterfalls, standing on what feels like the plains of Africa and exploring prehistoric lava fields. We are pretty confident you'll spend a good chunk of the time in awe.
Imagine being surrounded by a community of people who are all driven to get the most out of life, to wake up every day doing something they love and having a positive impact while they do it. Having this tribe of people who have your back and are cheering you along every step of the way is one of the incredible parts of joining IOC.
From the night before the course starts to graduation day, our beautiful pool villa in Canggu, Bali will be your home away from home.
The rooms are big and spacious - offering twin or triple share with someone of the same gender and all with their own private bathroom.
We personally checked all the beds & pillows to make sure they are the best there is to give you the best night’s sleep.
This villa is our campus, so each morning your ‘commute’ is just to wander down from your room to the classroom.
Yep, you sure did. The traditional Balinese massage is renowned for being the perfect mix of deep tissue & relaxation techniques, improving circulation & re-energizing the body, leaving you in a blissful state of mind.
We have dedicated the last 7 years of living in Bali to finding the best hands in the business & we are confident we have found them! The best part, it’s on offer every day.
Our team is on standby from the moment you touch down in beautiful Bali to the moment you get on the plane (and beyond).
So don’t worry about the hassle of getting to and from the airport. We’ve got you covered - our drivers are the BEST! After you enrol, send us your flight details and we’ll organise for our driver to be ready and waiting when you arrive. He’ll be wearing an IOC t-shirt and have a sign with your name on it (how fancy!).
And on top of that, our amazing in-house team will be there to cater to all your needs, day or night - from forgetting your toothbrush to breaking your phone charger & everything in-between, we’ve got it covered.
We know just how important it is to have a solid portfolio as a creative, especially as a photographer. That’s why we have designed this bootcamp to cover not just one or two different types of photography, but six!
So we have carefully crafted 6 epic shoots that will not only have you smiling from ear to ear, but also provide you with a varied portfolio to help you stand out from the crowd & secure those jobs you’ve always dreamed of.
Lifestyle photography is all about capturing the feeling and emotion of either a subject or space. Whether that’s couple photography or shooting a clothing brand in a more relaxed atmosphere that is more about the experience than the clothing itself.
It's a fun, creative and popular style of shooting that is often the stepping stone to fashion photography.
Strap in, because we are going to be diving into the world of studio photography - that’s right, in a studio, with lights, a model, the whole nine yards! If you are anything like me when I was first starting out, the idea of trying to figure out where to even start was stressful enough, let along doing it for a real world client.
So we’ll be spending a full half day in a private studio breaking down some of those scary barriers so you can add this valuable skill to your list!
This is where it all started for our lead mentor Emilio, professionally speaking, with his first real paycheck coming from a food & venue gig. And not only did it pay well but it was the perfect way to dive into client work and build a portfolio. With social media driving the content train harder than ever, even the smallest businesses need to jump on board or miss out, so it's a great way for you to start small and scale quickly. And hey, who doesn’t love taking photos of gorgeous food!
We will be taking you to one of our local favorites to practice. Shooting both the venue and some of their incredible food so you can hit the ground running when you get home!
Boy are we excited for this and even if you have never thought about becoming a fashion photographer, we guarantee that after a few hours shooting you will be hooked.
Its fast-paced, creative as hell and never boring. We will be employing some of our favourite models that are easygoing to help you build your confidence. Our in-house stylist will be there to bring some exciting sets to life and to top it off, we will be having professional hair and make-up on set to bring it all together.
Imagine travelling the world, exploring unique and exciting locations all while doing something you love! That right there is travel & adventure photography and if you play it right, you might find yourself in places you only ever dreamed of.
That’s why we will be spending 2 days exploring some of the more unique areas of bali, giving you the opportunity to shoot some dramatic and exciting locations.
A niche that we see so many up-and-coming photographers shy away from thinking it won’t be as fun or exciting as fashion or travel photography, only to see them try it out and LOVE IT! It can be extremely creative, highly in demand, slower paced and leave you feeling a lot of satisfaction.
We will be showing you all the ins and outs of product photography, from how to set up a mini-studio at home, to all the secrets to making your photos stand out from the crowd.
Imagine being able to sit down side by side with someone who's been in your shoes and built a thriving photography business - you can pick their brain, get feedback on your 12-month strategy and customize all the templates we share with you, from pricing & pitch templates to invoices & contracts to suit your individual brand.
From the moment you join you'll have access to a team of experienced mentors, guiding you and holding you accountable as you land client projects, refine your niche and build a thriving remote business.
Keep your momentum going with complimentary access (worth $175 per month) to our private mastermind community. From behind-the-scenes detailed case studies on real client projects, to interviews with photographers who have successfully hit $10k months in their business, this mastermind is filled with actionable insights you can apply to your own business.
Got a question or client issue? Ask us anything and every month we'll go live answering your questions and showing you exactly how we would solve any problems you're facing or opportunities you could be taking advantage of.
Accommodation, meals, daily yoga and so much more. We want you focused on learning new skills, not splitting the bill.
Forget sitting in classroom lectures, this course is filled with practical projects and live photoshoots to give you real world experience.
We keep our classrooms small with only 16 students, and have a minimum of 4 instructors so that you get the one-on-one attention you need to thrive.
