As a collaborative group of teen and high school senior photography studios, OneCollective creates an inclusive culture that focuses on enkindling elevated experiences for independent studios with integrity and transparency to build an inspired community.
As independent teen photographers scattered across the United States, we each have our own style of imagery, business models, and creative processes.
While our profession as creative small business entreprueners align, our stories of how we each got there differs.
One commonality among us, though, is in our desire to create an experience unlike any before. An experience for our clients and ourselves.
After meeting at different organizations' photography conferences, workshops, and shootouts, we each value the importance of networking, building camaraderie, and friendships within the industry.
Our growing network of peers began.
Born Out Of
Following a shootout in Las Vegas in March 2020, the very weekend of the start of the Covid-19 Shutdown, we felt the need to officially set up a formal business plan to help photography studios recreate a similar experience for their clients --- and themselves.
The idea of OneCollective.io was born.
In reality, though, studios can photograph their clients all the time in local or remote locations.
OneCollective founding members wanted to do something more than bring individual studio clients to an epic location for a typical "destination session."
Collectively, we realized that sharing subjects among all OneCollective studios creates a heightened experience for both the industry artist and their clients, who get to experience working with and learning from different professionals.
Boutique photographers and studios seeking to establish a more focused, profitable, and sustainable portrait business.
Together We Create
Our Dual Purpose
Support studios as they provide unique experiences for their clients.
Organize opportunities for photographers to learn from other industry professionals in developing sustainable businesses.
