Kelly Jacobi, of Kelly Jacobi Photography, is a lifestyle and portrait photographer based in western North Carolina. Kelly is excited to have teamed up with Beyond the Wanderlust to bring you her workshop, “Outside the Lines: An Artist’s Guide to Rule Breaking and Creative Insight.” Kelly sees photography as a wonderful journey that allows us to not only create art but to peel back our layers; to learn more about ourselves so we can push ourselves further than we ever thought we could. Kelly created this workshop to do just that, to help you find your path that is outside the lines. One that is uniquely yours and will set you on a path of creativity by breaking the rules and pushing boundaries. In this workshop you’ll receive a course handbook packed full of visual inspiration, tips and creative exercises to push you outside your comfort zone so you can break the rules with passion and confidence. In addition you’ll receive three of Kelly’s personal Lightroom presets, a Lightroom collage template, and an exclusive discount with free shipping from Canvas HQ.

“Kelly has a gift for creating art through inspiring interpretation of rules we sometimes feel bound by. Although there is a time and place for the rules, Kelly embodies the advanced creative understanding that true art comes from knowing when and how to bend those rules to truly capture the essence of the moment. Kelly bravely and passionately shoots from the heart, and through her exposure choices she creates beautiful images that tell unforgettable stories.”

She shares her own stories with you while walking you through a wide variety of techniques for both in camera and in post to aid you on creating your most perfect, imperfect images. With an amazing and diverse collection of photos on nearly every page, you’re given an impressive source of inspiration that point you towards how to use these tools you’ve now been given. She pushes you to see what you want to gain from your own work.”

“First, I adore how Kelly initially discovered her love for breaking the rules. As she digs deeper into how we can also achieve deeper photographs, I felt so inspired. Journaling is so important, and she shows why that is so – her words stem you toward creative push and hope – and this is all alongside her beautiful, inspirational imagery from her portfolio. Another thing I particularly loved was the rule breaking guide she had created for you. Kelly’s workshop is a must if you want to create more spin and drama into your work. With this workshop, I believe it will have you realizing so many things – bringing new flairs you wouldn’t have thought to imagine yourself going.  I loved it.”
