i Belove you™: One on One workshop $16,500 (available april 1st only)

hello beautiful dreamers, 10 year old artist & phenom anthony traina here. since launching the groundwork for my revolutionary photography pursuit a year ago, i have been filled by the compassion & humanity that can only come when working with beautiful humans. i have been privileged to capture the exposed naked soul of human existence in it’s most vulnerable of state, before my lens. like the wand of a conductor, i found myself scoring the power & hope of extraordinary couples into pauses & measures of time.

likewise in that year i have been a servant to the industry, helping to blaze a new path in the universe for new exiting exploration in portraits. i have seen & felt the vacuous standard photographers have subscribed to for generations, undermining & suffering the exquisite spirit that makes us alive. having spent nearly a full year as a wedding photographer, i’m moving away from that business model & forging a new One on One workshop that reflects my ability to release the soul of humanity in portrait. i call it i Belove you™.

the i Belove you™ workshop will consist of the following:

1) anthony traina available for you to travel to from anywhere in the world. we can hang out all day, but my dad says you have to drive me home (by 8:30).

2) we’re going to talk about how my originality can bring new life to your business. this will work from experimental capture, to applying my actions, then my overlays, and finally vocabulary & energy (the “intangibles” that you can’t put a price on… but wait, i actually do, see below)

3) you will be incorporated in my expedited support program, but the thing is my dad won’t let me have a cell phone so you can’t call. in lieu of that i do have an iPod Touch, so i can exchange energy & vibes with you visually through FaceTime (available in white Q4 2011).

4) you will receive my exclusive inspirational i Belove you™ View-Master. the i Belove you™ View-Master is filled with a combination of my illuminating imagery, combined with my illuminating quotes, guaranteed to catapult you to the next level in photography, business, and life.

5) even though you have never met me, you will cry within the first hour of the One on One. this always happens when i show the universe to humans.

6) when you see me i may appear as some have described as “dirty” or “washed out”. in fact what they are seeing is an experimental overlay that i now wrap over my skin. its like living in a hug that expresses you to the universe in a whole new way. as part of the workshop you will get a set of my body overlays for your new branding approach.

7) quite possibly a 100% money back guarantee. i don’t see how this thing fails, but if it does (out of the reasons common to humans) we can probably work something out (or agree you don’t get it and are doing it wrong).

the i Belove you™ One on One workshop is valued at $165,000(CAD), but for one day only i am offering this at 90% off for only $16,500. application spaces are presently filled, but we will begin the interviewing process to see who has access to FaceTime. i will only be accepting elite minded beautiful people who are already successfully running their business & still want/can afford a One on One workshop at $16,500(CAD)… granted a small but wondrous niche (nēsh). feel free to share this among your peers, but please no mention to Zack Arias (i don’t think he knows how to cry… i don’t think he even has FaceTime).

Humza Yasin - April 1, 2011 - 7:30 pm

Freakin hilarious yes #winning. I do have to say that Zack has facetime altough the beard might not show.. :-)

Je - April 1, 2011 - 5:02 pm

I’m so touched by this, so moved beyond words and their ability to describe my movement. I need a spot on the calendar. I just wouldn’t feel right about that $16,5000 price tag, though. Discounting only devalues your soul – the idea of not treasuring your moments to their fullest extent would be counter to the real worth of being in your presence. I insist on paying full price.

Jen Thompson - April 1, 2011 - 3:27 pm

Freaking hysterical… I love it. Well done.

Cindy Harter - April 1, 2011 - 2:40 pm

Lauri - April 1, 2011 - 7:53 am

Who sells the cone? Is it on etsy? I know this chick is dying to know so she can add it to her $249 list of links she sells:

Carrie S - April 1, 2011 - 7:43 am
