Calgary AB Newborn Photographer | Perfect Pose Newborn Mentoring

November 04, 2016  •  5 Comments

I have some super exciting news! I'm now offering newborn posing classes for photographers. Classes will take place in my SE Calgary studio and will start in January 2017. I also have some US workshops planned for spring and summer. Please inquire about dates and locations!

This mentoring class has been designed to focus on helping my mentorees achieve flawless posing, styling and wrapping. We will also talk a bit about lighting (I use a strobe), prepping parents, calming/soothing baby and more! An optional second day is available where will will go over editing, pricing, selling and other business topics.

Mentoring is only available to photographers who have a professional website or Facebook Photography page. This is not for local photographers. To register, you must live and work at least 150 kms from Calgary AB. You should have a full frame DSLR (but a crop sensor is fine too) and a good understanding of shooting in manual mode as we will not be discussing camera settings. I'm happy to share the settings I use though! I recommend bringing either a 50mm or 35mm prime lens. It's a good idea to also have at least a basic understanding of Photoshop and Lightroom for the second day (LR knowledge not absolutely necessary). I will be discussing my editing process so it might be tricky to follow along if you're not already using them.

All attendees will receive a swag bag full of pretty props from my sponsor vendors! Items include bonnets, wraps, headbands, rompers, and more! Also included, is a posing guide, a private facebook group, lunch and snacks!

All pricing is in Canadian dollars. The cost for day 1 is $1200 and both days is $2000. The retainer will be $600 if attending only Day 1 and $1000 if attending both days. All attendees will be responsible for their own transportation and accommodations.

Please contact me at [email protected] if you'd like more info or to register. I will be offering one class a month and they will be limited to only 3 photographers a class. I can't wait to speak with you!
