Become a Lumiè
Ready for a monthly bundle of education curated for you and your schedule.
Many of us in this industry wear a lot of hats and run a lot of departments inside our businesses. On the outside we are photographers. But behind the scenes we also run all our social media accounts, try to figure out marketing to reach our ideal clients, stay up to date on our company's bookkeeping, handle all scheduling and client relations, and so many more jobs.
And on top of all that we have to stay educated and in front of the ever changing industry. It can be downright exhausting.
The nice thing is that there are so many amazing photographers in our community who know what’s going on and want to help photographers, like you, get ahead of the game. The downside is purchasing online classes and digital guides covering everything you need to know can get well ... quite pricey.
That’s where The Lumiè Society comes in!
The Lumiè Society is a curated bundle of education instantly sent to you each month that you can enjoy and soak up at your own pace.
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 this monthly bundle, all the education you will be receiving, .. and oh yeah .. the price.
You can become a Lumiè for as just $19 a month!
And no topic is left untouched. We will be covering work/life balance, social media, marketing, photography, money, business, lighting, and so much more.
The Lumiè Society : A monthly bundle of education designed to help you grow your business and craft affordably and at your own pace.

" 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! "
