Journey to Creative Confidence

Become a more confident photographer 1 step at a time

Confidence isn’t something you’re born with, it’s something you create. When you have more confidence as a photographer, you’ll achieve more, be more creative and have more fun! Together we’ll discuss how you can start creating more today.

About Brie

The Creative Minds Coach Brie Stockwell in the field with her camera and tripod.

In early 2020, Brie jumped feet first into photography while pursuing a personal goal to grow from beginner to hosting a solo exhibition in just one year (which she did!). During that year, she discovered incredible personal insights, her passion for photography and the magic of the desert, especially dunes and interesting geology.

Now, as a coach for creatives, Brie inspires and encourages others to pursue their creative dreams as a self-proclaimed community cheerleader and through her podcast, YouTube channel and her creative coaching programs. She is a Certified Professional Coach with The Life Coach School.

Brie is a mom to four amazing kids, a lifelong creative and a Nature First Ambassador for the awesome state of Texas. She loves adventuring solo and with her husband. Access her portfolio and coaching programs here:


Here are a few example photos of Brie’s work:


After the main presentation, we’ll take a short break before we continue with our MemberShare. Here’s a quick reminder of the guidelines and procedure:

  • Send up to five photos via Dropbox file request.
  • Please send only JPEG files, sRGB color space
  • Minimum resolution: 1920 pixels wide or 1080 pixels high (whichever comes first)
  • Prepare to speak no more than 10-20 seconds on each photo
  • We’re a photo club – please share only your original photographs with us (no CGI, digital art, etc.)
  • Deadline for MemberShare submissions: Friday, August 19, 6pm
  • Nameplates: please include a portrait format headshot with your photos

To submit your images, simply click this button:


If you need help or if there’s anything unclear about this procedure, the Dropbox help article on file requests contains everything you need to know.

NOTE: Your photos are only shown during MemberShare and will be deleted afterwards. We do not keep copies. There is no need to watermark your photos. If you feel that you must add a logo or other overlay, please keep it small and unobtrusive.

Also, please do not wait until the very last minute to submit the photos you want to share. We need time to prepare the image presentation. When the MemberShare is especially popular, we may have to reduce the amount of images from each member. If that happens we will announce it before MemberShare begins, and hope for your understanding.

Goodies for Members

Just like last month, we’ll have a drawing where our members can win coupons from local businesses, a book from Rocky Nook, and more!
