THE CHARD

JUNE 15-16, 2021

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!

JUNE 15-16, 2021

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 Orange County 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 how I edit to create consistent images and tones throughout every one of my shoots.

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!

KANDACE PHOTOGRAPHY

"I've been a photographer for 11 years and has never attended a workshop. I had been looking for someone for 2 years that I could genuinely learn from and specifically in the areas that I needed help with. What stood out to me was Chardphoto's consistency on social media and his images. What I didn't realize I needed to learn and did so at his workshop was package pricing, albums and wedding day system. For me, those were HUGE game changers that I am so grateful for. Overall the experience was amazing and the connection with other workshop attendees was awesome. I was honestly expecting a great overall experience going into it but actually the workshop exceeded my expectations!"

KANDACE GONZALEZ

Jennie Raff photography

"Rich was friendly and enthusiastic and he explained concepts in an easy to understand, down to earth way. He isn’t stingy and will give out tricks as well as his entire social media plan. He’s a master at posing couples so they are flattered and look natural. The whole day he was just open and willing to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend his workshop for anyone a few years into business who wants to serve their clients more thoughtfully and shoot more beautiful photos."

JENNIE RAFF

Aimee Matias photography

"This workshop seriously changed my life for the better. As a new photographer, it opened up my eyes on how to structure everything and how to create the consistency I wanted.

It allowed me to learn how to get my dream clients and keep them. It also made it incredibly easy for me to feel comfortable in front of my clients! Rich is definitely doing something right!"

AIMEE MATIAS

LOVE & YOU STUDIOS

"If you want to take your wedding photography to the next level, you definitely need to attend Rich's workshop! He will answer any question you have and he will show you every aspect of his wedding photography business.

You will leave the workshop a better photographer and you will gain the insight to run your business like a pro."
