Location: in the Salt Lake City, Utah area (exact location will be given to participants)

When: The workshop will begin on Friday afternoon and conclude on Sunday morning. This will give you time to fly in that morning and fly out anytime on Sunday.

All photography skill levels are welcome! The workshop seats are very limited only 8 participants maximum.

What: This will be a three day intensive workshop and I will not holding anything back. If you know me, you know that I put my heart and soul into teaching. I have a special place in my heart for my photographer friends and I absolutely believe in community over competition. Not only will we be diving deep into light and how to bring your vision to life, but I will be teaching you step-by-step all about how I shoot, edit, and stay inspired including but not limited to:

  • How to work with light in ANY situation
  • Learn to find and develop your vision + style
  • How to get out of a photography rut
  • Exposing with the end result in mind
  • Learn to get inspired by the environment/location around you
  • Creative compositions and rule breaking
  • How to work in any location and get a variety of images

I will also be sharing my complete editing workflow that has not been shared anywhere else. So much has changed with my editing (and how I shoot for my edits) since switching camera brands at the end of 2015 and I am excited to share it! I use both Lightroom and Photoshop in my workflow and will be walking you through what I do in both programs. Any add-ons that I use in my processing will be included (my presets, actions, and plugins I use)! We will cover different types of light in editing as well so that you see what I modify in my workflow when working in full sun, backlight, shade, pockets of light, indoor light, etc… Post-processing isn’t about everyone doing the exact same thing. I want to help you discover your editing style to enhance your images and know how to get the look you are after every single time.

At least 2 portfolio building sessions will be included and we will be shooting at 2 of my favorite spots – the Bonneville Salt Flats and the Great Salt Lake (scroll down to see samples of these locations). We will be shooting on Friday evening at the lake and on Saturday evening at the Salt Flats. We will have multiple models at each location (kids, family, couples). Because of the limited size of our workshop group, you will have ample opportunity to practice what you are learning while building your portfolio.

Although this is not a business workshop, I will happily answer any business related questions and what has worked best for my business over the years.
