THE CHARD

OCT 22-23, 2019

Welcome

I’m so excited and honored to offer this workshop to aspiring photographers! I have been shooting full-time for 8 years. I have learned a lot and continue to learn every day! I definitely don’t know it ALL, but if you’d like to find out how I work, learn more about my natural-light style of photography, how I run my business, and/or ask me any questions that you want, then this might be the workshop for you!

We'll be shooting at one of my very favorite beaches in my home town area. This is a spot that I shoot at regularly and I'll be able to show you how I deal with some of the weird light that is involved with beach shoots before that golden hour magic.

I love shooting in the desert. Maybe it's because I'm always by the beach so the desert is a little foreign to me. But I just love the light there and how it reflects off of everything around it. Scottsdale has some incredible backdrops for us, and some of the best food I've ever had!

This workshop in Palm Springs offers an all encompassing insight into my business. We'll cover all the main points you'd expect, you'll have the opportunity to photograph a real couple and we're even planning an in-depth editing session where I will show you exactly how I achieve my signature look and style.

This workshop will cover: posing, marketing, social media, editing, workflow, pricing, client interaction and also show you how to TAKE CONTROL of your business!

I know what you're thinking... will there be an opportunity to shoot? And of course, the answer is yes! We'll be working with a real life couple for two shoots so we can really dive in to showing you how to work with the unexpected. The day will run from 10am - 10pm, so make sure you eat a good breakfast!
