Photography Workshop Schedule:
The workshop will start at 2pm. We will meet at the far back end (as close to the trail as you can get) of Riverfront Park in Sayre PA.
After a quick introduction of all involved, the live styling with Shea and Reagan will begin. I will take you through how to find and work with a skilled stylist. Then Shea will tell you what stylists look for in photographers they work with (hint: it's not always talent first).
We'll talk as Shea builds a whimsical look on Reagan. I'll take you through our hacked wardrobe and props so you can see how even a small budget (or no budget) can create beautiful looks.
During this time you'll be able to ask questions about styling, our creative process, and prepping your camera for the light we're presented with.
We'll go over the importance and how to's of shooting behind the scenes video. What should you be looking for when creating video and how to use video in social media and your website to build your credibility as a photographer.
We'll work with the dress, simplify on location lighting, and use props to create dreamy portraits.
Everyone will get ample opportunity to photograph Regan. I will take the time to give individual guidance and helpful insight so the portraits you're creating stand out.
You leaving this workshop with beautiful images and tools to create is my top priority.
Once shooting is complete we'll take just a few moments to wrap up as I discuss the most important aspect of being a photographer- stop seeking validation and know your worth as a creator.
Come create. Come connect. Come learn.
It's time for you to shoot creative portraits like a professional.

During the styling process you'll be up and about getting stills and BTS video for your own portfolio. You'll have a chance to scope out the location and prepare ideas for what you'd like to create.
Once styling is complete we will move to our forested location and go over the necessary steps to master posing anyone. I will show you all my tips and tricks that will allow you to make anyone you photograph feel confidant in your skills and look beautiful as themselves. Posing is vital for a professional
photographer and I'm going to teach you how to get it right.
