Join the 7 Day Storyteller's Photo Challenge!

Get in for the 7 Day Storyteller's Challenge Classic edition - Begins February 27th!

We challenge YOU to photograph one of the great stories in your life.

All it takes is one memory-in-the-making, an open heart, and some grit to go after the photographs that tell the story. This challenge runs quarterly and changes with the seasons. These are the 4 editions you can get in on:

  • February or March – Reader’s Choice (you’ll vote on the topic) 
  • June – Summer edition 
  • September – Family Historian edition 
  • November – Holiday edition 

"Frankly, that 7 day series was extremely amazing, considering I've paid tons of $$$ for storytelling workshops, breakouts, etc... and it was free?!?!!! And REALLY good content!! Thank you so much, ‪Marie Masse‬, for the awesome mini-course." Sarah Harrigan 

How to Shoot a Photo Story

During the Live Challenge, here's what to expect and what you'll learn:

  • The 7 most important elements you need for shooting a full story for yourself or for clients
  • Uncover my secrets to getting clients on board and feeling comfortable with an unposed session.
  • Learn exactly WHAT you need to know before shooting a story (important!)
  • Freebie downloads designed to make sticking with the challenge easy peasy
  • We’ll talk about research, shooting techniques, editing, how to package your story, and how to get documentary clients on your calendar for the upcoming season 

Your images will be transformed into stronger, photojournalistic stories all approached in a freeing, documentary way. 

This is what you’ll gain through this challenge:

  • The most valuable thing: a personal story savored in photos (old photo box delight!)
  • My pre-shoot research phase from start to finish so you can replicate into your own business
  • A stronger sense of awareness and observation, which will make your skill in anticipating moments higher than ever (goodbye posing, hello confidence!) 
  • How to shoot so your subject doesn’t feel in the spotlight (and actually stays relaxed) 

Take it from previous 7 Day Challengers: 

“I had been following Fearless and Framed on Facebook for a while when I saw the post about the 7-Day Challenge. Immediately I knew that I wanted to sign up, so I did. I was extremely nervous; though lifestyle and documentary photography are my favorite, I have not been practicing them for long and had no idea what I had gotten myself into. I knew that Marie's work rocked, so I imagined it would be challenging, and I convinced myself that I could do it." 

"The first day when I got her e-mail, I was so comforted! She talked to all of us like she was sitting right there with us, which was so valuable and encouraging. All of the advice given was relative, extremely helpful, and put so many things into perspective; either reinforcing things that I had personally believed or done/wanted for my business, or opening my eyes to things that I hadn't realized before." 

"The challenge helped me professionally because I learned how to seek out the special, intimate moments needed for a documentary session. It raised my confidence levels, challenged me to put my lighting skills to the test, and it helped me explore editing in black in white in an entire new way. I feel 100% more confident about myself as a photographer and my work after the challenge.” Amanda McKay 

“I absolutely loved this challenge. I was so excited to be able to try something documentary style in my own home. I do this regularly anyway, but the constant push to be able to photograph something constantly for a short period of time was huge for me. My favorite part was the day Marie told us about the 7 things to watch out for in each session. A total light bulb went off after reading these words. Not only did I realize that I had to work harder at this style of photography, I realized that I WANTED to work harder at this style of photography and I was even jazzed about it. I can’t thank Marie enough for this. I have something to work for now and challenges always bring out the best in my work.” Heather Floyd 

“Documentary photography has always been my heart. And when my friend suggested we do this challenge I was totally up for it! I loved that it was one email a day for 7 days. Easy commitment. And that you shared your experience and knowledge, but then gave us a challenge. And that it was tangible! I didn’t feel overwhelmed. I knew I could do this one thing today and be ready for tomorrow! Plus, it set our minds in the right direction for each day. I adored it. I also locked myself in my bedroom and listened to your entire live podcast. And I kinda felt like I was there with you!” Tammy Zdunich
