UPCOMING WORKSHOPS:

CREATIVE PORTRAIT PHOTOSHOOT WORKSHOP IN LA W/ MODEL YULIA KIRILLOVA

DATE: July 16, 2017

LOCATION: Elysian Park - Angel's Point

10 PEOPLE MAX

*TICKETS AVAILABLE VIA EVENTBRITE LINK BELOW!*


What will we do during the Photoshoot session? 

We'll be meeting in the beautiful hill top spot in Elysian Park called Angel's Point. The first half hour will be a brief meet-and-greet with donuts and then we'll jump right into the fun stuff. 

  • Basics including my favorite camera settings for portraits, shooting in manual and auto focusing musts. 
  • Using lighting in a creative way. Using natural light and a basic reflector to make a unique, compelling photograph. Photography is the study of light so let's study it!
  • Posing a model. It's true that the best poses feel the weirdest and most awkward. We will be covering creative poses that really push a photo to the next level. The model is a professional and she knows what she's doing so you're guaranteed great, high quality shots.
  • Creating unique fine-art photos with a set made by Lauren.
  • Creative DYI in-camera techniques. I love DYI shit that doesn't cost an arm and leg, and creates effects that add beautiful layers to an image. 
  • Time to get weird and creative. You might see me dance, you might see my clumsy ass fall, anything could happen. 

What do I need to bring to the Workshop?

A camera (if you have one - if not that's fine!), a memory card, an extra battery or make sure yours is fully charged, and yourself.

What will you get out of this? 

My promise to you is that you'll walk away not only feeling more confident with your camera, but also with a hefty batch of unique and inspiring creative photos to add to your portfolio. Don't believe me? Reviews below!

What experience level is this for? 

This is a low-pressure, laid back workshop that is suitable for all experience levels from beginners to pros looking to have some fun w/ photography.

In this class, you’ll learn how to create dreamy photo effects using ordinary objects. The effects are stunning but the process and techniques are approachable for all skill levels. Along the way, I'll provide pro photography tips on how to shoot in outdoor and indoor lighting. Finally, you’ll learn how to edit your photos using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop to really fine tune your photos.
