lets get to w e r k!
June 16th 2019, 12 - 8pm at Grounds of Cabarita // $650.00 pp
Two years ago, a young graduate psychologist with an interest in photography went to a workshop & their whole world was flipped upside down. That girl was me! Fast forward to present day, I've moved from Canada to Australia and am shooting weddings & elopements both interstate + internationally - full time. Intentional space for growth, encouragement and education can literally change your life. I am so passionate about bringing people together, and believe in community over competition. We only stand to learn and grow more by leaning on + supporting each other //
With all that & more on my heart -- I present you with 'b a r e' the workshop. In collaboration with the Grounds of Cabarita; a one day in-home styled shoot and mentoring space. So often, photography education is inaccessible - it's expensive and oversaturated. It's styled shoots in epic locations, with full styling and hot models instead of real couples -- that's not what 'b a r e' is all about. This workshop is for photographers looking to improve their skill in conditions with no distractions. No mountain backdrop, no epic florals -- just a couple in love. It's geared towards photographers who know how to use their camera well, but are looking for a challenge + some inspiration. Investing in both your art & in your business, coming out with a fresh sense of purpose and excitedment. This industry can be overwhelming/ intimidating and full of curveballs. I want to create a safe space for you guys to come + be vulnerable about where you're at in your photo journey. I'm keeping it to 8 available seats, so that we get as personalized as possible. Each of you will get to pick your own topic for me to cover during the afternoon mentoring - ensuring you're learning exactly what you need! Heading into the shoot, you'll each get plenty of one-on-one time shooting our couple. I'll be watching you while you work, giving lots of feedback and tips for you to try on the spot, and then later implement in real shoots! Lastly, we'll be ordering in heaps pizza + uploading our images from the shoot! Group editing sounds scary, but it's a great learning tool. Watch how I edit + see the tricks that I use, then go try for yourself. Seeing how others shoot, but also how they achieve their final product, gets us thinking outside the box! I can also hop in to help with any editing questions you guys may have!
I can't wait to meet you x

Creating Authentic Moments:
The number one reason couples inquire with me is because they're looking for someone who captures the real + in-between moments. We'll be going over the art of using promps over posing, and predicting how these directions play out. There are so many factors at play - each couple is different, but so is each photographer. It's important you find great promps that couples will love, that you enjoy + feel comfortable using. The live shoot of the workshop will be the perfect time to learn new promps, try them out and see directly how they look in the final product -- your new portfolio!!
How you edit your photos is the final step in telling the story of a session, and is SO crucial for creating an overall brand and look. Creating a consistent editing style fosters trust in your clients, and shows them that you can deliver photos to them in that same style. We'll go over everything, from how to expose your shots to suit your editing style - to using brush tricks and tips.
