Evolve Workshop
Along with expanding your photography skills, the Evolve Workshop will give you the opportunity to interact with Sheye, Fran and other participants on a daily basis in a creative and inspiring environment, via the Eye Candy Forum and Live Chats.

The workshop is designed to run at your own pace over four weeks, with weekly modules, and includes access to an interactive forum for sharing images and ideas and to ask questions.

Sheye, along with Fran Mackenzie,  will actively participate by setting practice tasks and providing information and advice. You will also have access to Eye Candy 101 - a comprehensive data base filled with everything photography including hundreds of tips from Sheye.

Participants also receive discount offers for professional printing, web design and site hosting.

We are proud to have taught over 3000 people in the last four years and to have created a strong and very supportive Eye Candy community. 

Due to the arrival of Sheye's twins in February, the next Evolve Workshop will tentatively run in late 2013. If you would like to keep informed about upcoming workshops, please email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

I wish I could describe in words what I liked about this workshop and what it has done for me both photography wise and personally. In every way you and Fran both went out of your way to help and I just cant thank you enough. I loved the critiquing it was so incredibly helpful, the tutorials, the forum and 101. I was completely surprised at how beneficial this course was to be honest I was worried about completing an online course but it was absolutely perfect being able to think on things and jump in and ask questions anytime. I think everyone needs to do this course photographer or not!

Absolutely loved every aspect of the workshop. With the info provided I have learned so much, tie that it with the critiques, comments from the other girls and just the wonderful support and friendliness of everyone, I could not have asked for a more wonderful learning experience. I love the challenge of the tasks and how with each one, it was not just an opportunity to learn about photography, but also to learn about myself. I love the set up of the forum, it is very addictive!!! - Kate G

The information in the modules is easy to follow and understand and I loved all the little tips shared during the course in the forum. But most of all the motivation and support from Sheye, Fran and the Evolve participants was just wonderful. The Forum was just such a fun and supportive place to be with like minded people. I loved all the sharing. - Michelle F

I've had a "laundry list" of things I've been wanting to learn for a long time.... you tackled all of those topics in one place and made it easy to learn (or at least understand what I need to practice!) Honestly, I think you are so amazing... just to say I learned anything from you is wonderful. - Tracy M

I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon your workshops. I feel I have a new found confidence and feel that I finally am headed in the right direction. I am excited about my future and look forward to absorbing all this information and going for it. I can't thank you enough! I feel a VERY sad that this is coming to an end but I know I'll be keeping in touch and I am thrilled to watch everyone grow in their photography journey!
Thank you again! I loved it!

I really enjoy the community feel of these workshops. Because Sheye is so generous with her knowledge, there is a spirit of sharing and everyone involved opens up to one other, without anxiety or an overblown sense of competition . To be a part of this space, where there is warmth, community, and a wealth of knowledge and resources, has been invaluable. Sheye has touched my life, and the experience of her workshops has enriched my photography. I know I will always seek out opportunities to learn from her. - Sarah K

In a word....thankyou! I have learned so much, and grown as a person as well as a photographer. Even if down the track I decide not to pursue photography, the knowledge you have given me has been wonderful. I will treasure my experience at Evolve always.  I loved how supportive most people are, the sense of belonging to a group and the amount of input Sheye has. I really feel like I was not judged for my lack of knowledge, but was given great support and encouragement from everyone. Sheye, I can't thank you enough for how much more confident I am to pursue my passion!  - Kristen D

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Sheye & Fran, for all the work you obviously put into making this an awesome experience… the only way I know how to describe this workshop is *life changing*. I am forever grateful to you for helping me so much through my journey… smile    Alison
