Dustin Mitchell

HeLLo,
Creative Friend!

warmly,

EduCation

I'M Dustin! Ice Cream Lover, Creative,  Business owner AND FRIEND

hey, you!

This is my 6th year in business as a photographer and videographer.

When I first started out, I paid an out-of-state talented photographer to mentor me. Later I took online courses, attended workshops, retreats, content days and more to increase my own abilities to best serve my clients and community. Through these opportunities, I have had the privilege to build friendships with some of the best photographers, videographers, creatives and business owners around. 

I have seen first hand the benefit of actively pursuing education and connection. And now, I want to take all of that and download it straight into you! 

If you are looking to expand your media skills, grow your business, and connect with an amazing group of creatives then this is for you!!!

ARE THE EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS A STEP-BY-STEP COURSE?

No. The educational videos are over a variety of topics. I use information and feedback from current members when creating the weekly videos. The video on it's own does include step-by-step instructions on how too achieve the specific goal of the subject. However, each weekly video does not necessarily build off one another in a course outline style.

DOES CREATIVE DUST COMMUNITY TEACH NEW PHOTOGRAPHERS HOW TO USE THEIR CAMERAS?

No and yes. Creative Dust Community is not specifically geared towards new photographers. There are many videos that are suitable for new photographers, but this is not a beginners photographer education class. However, videos on how to shoot in manual mode and more will be coming soon.

In addition, Michael and I have both showed photographers at our connection days how to use their camera in manual mode  while in-person. We are here to assist you with hands on help at our monthly connection days and through email with additional online resources.

I'M A CREATIVE BUSINESS OWNER. DO I STILL FIT IN IF DON'T DO PHOTOGRAPHY?

Great question! Since I am a photographer the majority of students I have attracted are other photographers. However it takes more than camera skills to run a business. Every business owner can benefit from learning how to show up up powerfully online. That's where I can help. Many of our educational videos include ways to create online content that showcases your business effectively.

Aquire skills to get your audience to stop scrolling when they see your social media accounts. Gain knowledge to make your website's presentation sell before you even invest time into your customer. Learn how to show up beautifully.

And let's connect further on how we can highlight, promote and create content around your business at our connection days. We are all here to help each other grow.

Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I CALL OR TEXT YOU?

Access to me does not include phone calls or texts. One of the subjects I love teaching on in Creative Dust Community is Business Boundaries. To ensure that I am able to offer the best of me to the entire group I offer unlimited email access for direct communication. I will return my best response to you in 72 hours excluding weekends, holidays, my birthday or vacation travel.

In addition to email access, I actively respond to questions in our Creative Dust Community Networking Groups. You can also DM me on Instagram. 

HOW DO I GET YOUR PRESETS?

After joining Creative Dust Community you will get access to all previously recorded lessons. You can skip to the videos labeled "Apply Creative Dust Studios Indoor Presets" and "Gallery Prepping & Applying Creative Dust Studios Outdoor Garden Presets" 

The above videos include steps to download and apply my very own presets.

IS CREATIVE DUST COMMUNITY STILL VALUABLE IF I CAN'T SHOW UP IN PERSON TO THE MONTHLY CONNECTION DAYS?

Absolutely! You may have a little FOMO when we discuss monthly plans in the networking groups, but Create Dust Community still provides so much online value. You still have the ability to request video topics, email me directly, and reach out to a group of creative business owners. Plus you have a forever invitation to maybe one day join us in person.
