As a photographer, and small business owner, we have to wear oh so many hats in our day to day business routine. On the outside we are all photographers. But behind the scenes we are also trying to be social media account managers, marketing experts, bookkeeping geniuses, publicists, & so much more.
And on top of all that we have to stay educated and in front of the ever changing industry. It can be downright exhausting, depressing, and stressful. You know I am I right?
The nice thing is that there are so many amazing creatives in our community who specialize in those fields & who want to help photographers, like you, get ahead of the game. The downside is ...
That’s where The Lumiè Society comes in!
The Lumiè Society is a curated bundle of education covering all those little topics you need to stay on top of. It's all nicely organized & packed inside a membership site for you to soak up at your own pace ... & new content is added each and every month!
It includes our highly respected magazine, that has been supporting and educating the community since 2013, an educational guide or resource for your business, and a masterclass taught each month by top educators in our industry, face to face in video form.
Whether you are a film, digital, or hybrid photographer, you are sure to LOVE our membership, all the education you will be receiving, .. and oh yeah .. the price.
You can become a Lumiè for just $21 a month or get two months for free when you sign up for a year.
& of course no topic is left untouched. We will be covering work/life balance, social media, marketing, photography, money, business, lighting, and so much more.
Purchasing online classes & guides so you can stay on top of everything can get well ... quite pricey.
The very best part about The Lumiè Society is that a brand new bundle of education is added every single month (specifically on the first Monday). And the second best part, you get to soak it up on your own time. No more lives to remember to watch. No more multiple accounts to create. Everything is bundled together nice and organized for you in one place, on your time.
25 - 60 minute long masterclasses taught by top educators & artists in our industry. You know, the ones who are out there building their dreams business & thriving!! Each month we add a new masterclass from a new teacher who wants to connect with you - face to face - and share what they know best. Currently we have some darn good watches just waiting for you from D'Arcy Benincosa, Paige Griffith (The Legal Paige), Julie Paisley, Kir Tuben, & more.
Our 60 page magazine has been educating & inspiring the community for more than 7 years! Something we are darn proud of. Each issue dives into 6 educational and inspirational articles including our "Ask Belle Lumière" series where we answer questions from 'you' our community each month. Our magazine is how we got started sharing educator with this community and after seven years photographers still love the fact that they get to learn a little bit about a lot of different things each month.
This is like the sprinkles on the icing on top of your cake. We know that everyones schedule is a little tight. So we created multiple mini guides that you can soak up with in an hour & that help you with your business. Not to mention a few amazing resources including a session profit tracker template created by a real Category Manager Analyst ... it's some of our lumiès favorite resource!
The best part about a membership site, in our option, is that you have access so all our back education. All the previous masterclasses, all the previous issues of our magazine, & all the previous resources & guides. It's like your own personal mini library! That gets new material added each and every month!
Go on .. grab UP ALL that education ... you deserve it!

" What a stroke of genius The Lumiè Society is! Not only is each bundle filled with beautifully curated yet educational articles but I adore the feeling of community especially being based in a more rural area of South Africa … I get to read through and soak up the content in my own time right here at home or on the go if I need to. This community had opened up so many new possibilities of what my life as a photographer and a creative can be! "

" Just signed up for Belle Lumiere’s The Lumie Society and I am already in love with it! So excited to be learning from the best while quarantining! I am loving all the resources. Trying to set a daily limit to how much I read/watch so I can enjoy it longer! "
" It's not often that I invest in education for myself or for my business, but when I saw Belle Lumiere was creating an educational monthly subscription, I jumped on the chance. The Lumie Society is filled with concrete advice, actionable steps (no fluff here!) and tons of inspiration. Whatever way you learn, there is absolutely something here for you to expand your industry knowledge. So happy with my decision to invest in this (and did I mention how insanely affordable it is?). "
" The Lumie Society is keeping me educated and inspired each and every month. The diversity in topics push me as an artist to explore fresh techniques and find areas of photography that are new to me. Each bundle creates a high level of motivation and enthusiasm that I am apply to my business. I am so thankful for the opportunity! "
" Joining the Lumiè society has given me so many wonderful opportunities for education to hone my craft and be a better storyteller and business owner. The monthly bundles are full of educational materials plus the master class series alone is worth the monthly subscription. They are in video format which I love and they have been incredibly informative and to the point. I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year brings! "
