First of all, I want to be completely honest and transparent...I DO NOT claim to be a master teacher, I DO NOT claim to have "all" the answers! I DO NOT claim to be the "best" or the "authority" on all things photography and I am NOT "technical" at all! If you are looking for a workshop that will give lectures on the "technical" aspects of photography...this is NOT the workshop for you!!! I am self-taught through much research and trial and error! I do not claim everything I do is right but it works for me and I'm happy to share!
My workshops are very "hands-on". I will set up 3 sessions (if you are attending the regular workshop it will be a variety of different types of sessions and if you are attending a newborn workshop it will 3 newborns) and you will observe and shoot along with me! We will go over basic camera settings (aperture, ISO, shutter speed and white balance) posing, lighting (natural) and basic editing/workflow. We will also have a time of Q&A, I'm very open and I love to answer each and every question you have! I actually really enjoy this part of the workshop, I know when I was learning there were so many people who would not answer my questions, so I don't hold anything back!
Ok, so now to answer your question..."How much is it?" Well, I have decided to keep my workshops priced low. I know when I was first starting out there was no way that I could afford the expensive workshops, they are awesome, but someone has to start somewhere! My workshops are $250. They are very affordable and from the feedback that I have received it is very much worth the price! Right now, I am only offering one day workshops but I have had several requests for more...and yes, there are ideas in my head! Those will be announced at a later date and I'm downright giddy with excitement to tell you all about it!
I have set up the following dates for upcoming workshops. I keep my workshops small, only 6-8 at each workshop! I am also available for travel, I would just need someone who is willing host and a natural light studio! If you are interested in this, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the dates that are available so far for 2011, there is a chance that a few more will be added but these are the dates at this time.
May 7th - Newborn posing workshop
May 28th - Basic Workshop
June 17th - Newborn Workshop
July 9th - Newborn Workshop
July 30th - Basic Workshop
August 12th - Zanesville Ohio Workshop
August 13th - Zanesville Ohio Workshop
In order to attend the basic workshop, you will need a DSLR camera and you do not need to be shooting on manual to attend but please study your manual and know how to adjust your settings! You will be shooting on manual at the end of the day! You also do not need to be a "photographer"! I have several mom's who just want to learn how to take better pictures!
For the newborn workshop, you will need a DSLR camera and at least the 50 1.8 or 50 1.4 fixed lens. You will also need to be a "practicing photog". This type of photography is not for everyone so I suggest that you have a firm grip on basic photography to take this class.
So, who is ready to sign up? :) In order to do so, please email me at email@example.com I will need $100 to hold your spot and the remainder is due the day of the workshop! Thank you so much and I can't to spend the day with you!
