I’m excited to be teaching for an entire week at West Coast School. It’s a full weeklong workshop where photographers come to California to train to be more proficient in their profession.
With more competition, it’s more crucial than ever to have a high-end style that blends emotion, creativity, pro techniques, and business savvy. Having an eye-grabbing portfolio, killer marketing images, and shooting stronger images presented in the right way means making more money and attracting better clients. Whether you photograph families, children, weddings, or high school seniors, come learn to create more powerful images with more variety, while actually shooting fewer images, and also be ninja-fast in your workflow. Regardless of your current level, I’ll help you grow by giving you personal challenges and assignments utilizing models, advanced techniques, continually changing lights, gear, styles, and locations.
I’ll share my systems for nailing perfect exposure and color balance (inside and out, with any gear), as well specifics on making women look amazing in-camera with light. You’ll learn my secrets of social dynamics so complete strangers relax on camera, while giving you new ways of thinking about posing and directing. And you’ll practice engaging people to pull out and capture their true personalities with more powerful and true expressions. Using these systems, you’ll have better images going into Photoshop than most people have coming out. And we’ll take those images further with a clean and fast workflow, nothing hidden behind the scenes. No matter your level, I’ll make you faster. And your images will have a clean, crisp, expensive commercial look while also being more real and emotionally captivating.
Plus I’ll change the way you think about business by sharing what I call the “Psychology of Pricing and Sales.” You’ll know how to make more money with these more powerful and creative images. Regardless of the type of gear you have or how you rate your level of experience, if you’re serious about your portrait photography business, I’ll make you a better, more creative, more confident portrait photographer.
