The Album Atelier

Introducing a brand new style of workshop, dedicated entirely to the business and art of wedding albums.

Created by Sydney-based wedding photographer, mentor and former NSW President of the AIPP, Milton Gan, The Album Atelier has been designed in response to a commonly cited desire amongst photographers: to overcome their fear of selling and improve their design skills so they can create more albums for their clients and enjoy the benefits of a highly profitable source of revenue.

We invite you to join us for a day of learning, growth and community as we take a deep dive into the secrets of successfully marketing, selling and designing albums, and engage in practical sessions that will elevate and energise your business.

The workshop runs on Saturday 24th June 2017 and is repeated on Sunday 25th June. There are only 50 tickets available for each day so early booking is advisable to secure your place.

The Classes

Get ready for an intensive journey as we teach you everything you'll ever need to know about albums.

Every class has been designed with you in mind and structured so you get maximum benefit from our talented mentors. And each piece of content has been carefully scheduled to create a tower of layers that progressively build your knowledge, skills and confidence throughout the day.



Nervous about selling? We feel your pain. But don't worry, our mentors will teach you their simple, proven tips that create happy clients and a substantial revenue stream without losing your integrity. Welcome to sales without the sleaze.


Stuck in a rut when it comes to album creativity? Our industry experts will take you on a journey that strengthens your storytelling, speeds up your workflows and boosts your understanding of the craft of making albums.


Taking notes is good but getting your hands dirty is even better! Our role play sessions will build your confidence in selling within the safety of friendly, small groups supervised by our mentors, while the SmartAlbums stations will let you try out your design skills using this revolutionary software.


After completing a hard day's work there's nothing better than celebrating and bonding with your classmates and mentors over some refreshing drinks in the bar.

And the first one is on us!

The Mentors

Our team of mentors are renowned professional photographers, album designers and album producers and they will be going above and beyond just speaking to ensure you gain maximum benefit from their wealth of experience. They will be with you for the whole day to provide advice, guidance and a shoulder to lean, laugh and even cry on. That's why we call them mentors.

Settle into the vintage seats of the former Paramount Pictures private screening room for your classes, and enjoy your practical sessions and breaks in one of Sydney's best kept secrets, the speakeasy style bar.
