The past weekend, January 9th & 10th, I hosted my first photography workshop, focus on Fashion & Creative Portraiture. I am thrilled to say it was a success, a very busy weekend full of shooting & retouching. I was joined by 7 amazing workshop attendees, all with varying backgrounds & experience in photography, all with an interest in branching into fashion styled images, looking to gain portfolio work and learn my workflow. I am so impressed and so proud of what all these photographers accomplished in 2 days!
I am already bursting with ideas for my next workshop. In the meantime, I wanted to share a behind the scenes look at the workshop, as well as samples of my students work.

We started off Day One with some theory on fashion photography and model portfolio building. Covering the basics and background for getting into fashion work. I planned 3 unique photoshoots for the students, explained my shooting setup, camera settings, and working with models. Each student shot their own set of images from each look. Check it all out below!
A million thank you's to my team for the workshop
