3-day Photography Workshop (in person!)
It's a 3-day (IN PERSON) Photography Workshop, taking place Fall 2022 in Vermont!
DATES: October 14-16, 2022
👉🏻 Are you a small business owner who is doing all (or most) of your own photography?
👉🏻 Or a food blogger who wants to take their images to the next level?
👉🏻 Or maybe you're a seasoned photographer who needs help with their styling?
If you said yes to any of the above, this workshop is for YOU.
There are numerous awesome online photography classes out there, (we've taught a few ourselves!) and while those are GREAT resources, nothing beats learning in person. There is no replacement for collaboration and connection between students, getting immediate feedback from your instructor and fellow workshop participants and receiving hands on help with YOUR particular challenges. And, as an instructor, there is nothing that beats the moment when your students look at their work with pride and feel empowered in their own creativity. It is the BEST THING EVER.
In this 3-day, in person workshop, we will talk about utilizing natural light (because everyone has access to a window somewhere), composition, prop styling, creating dynamic flat lays, incorporating action, telling a story with your images, finding your own style and SO MUCH MORE.
There will be both group discussion and time for one-on-one help but, mostly, you will be spending the majority of your time taking photos and Clare will be there to assist you whenever you need it. The goal of this workshop is to increase your ability and confidence with your own work.
