Amazing cameras surround us. Cameras have become so integrated into our daily technology that odds are you’re reading this on a device that has a multi-megapixel, state-of-the-art camera. Capturing a moment, taking a picture is easy---let the device do all the work. Yet a simple truth remains; elevating a snapshot into publication-worthy art is a skill beyond the equipment. 

I want you to rise above, set your work apart, and transform your pictures into artwork. I want to teach you important lessons learned from more than ten years of wedding photography and portraiture experience. During this workshop we will introduce you to working with wedding planners, creating publication-worthy art, targeting high end clients, marketing yourself as a luxury artist, styling, and a mini wedding walk-through. 

To do this, I have partnered with some of the Midwest’s most talented vendors including Samantha Joy Events & Roots Floral Design.  The Workshop is an 8 hour class and will be held at Laurel Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana on Tuesday May 22, 2018. Lunch and snacks will be provided for all attendees

Questions you may have...

Do I need to bring a film camera?  Is this workshop for film photographers?

You do not! Building a brand with a digital camera can be equally as successful as film. We will go over pros and cons of shooting with film and some basic info. If you have a film camera and want to try it out this would be the perfect opportunity! I will be available for any questions you may have separate from what we discuss during class time, but you do not have to be a film photographer to attend.

What should I bring? 

I recommend bringing your camera gear and a notebook or laptop to take notes. 

Can I use the  images from the styled shoot for my website, blog & social media??

Yes! Please feel free to use the images to help build your brand.  We do require that you tag all contributing vendors on any social media accounts or blog post. 

How do I pay?

There is a non refundable retainer fee of  $400 due to reserve your seat. Seats are first come-first serve and are limited.  The final payment is due no later than May 15th. Payments can be made by check or Pay Pal
