Mentoring & Workshops
Congratulations on taking the first step towards improving your newborn photography! With a 1:1 mentoring class in my studio, you'll receive the personal attention and practice you need to learn fast. It took me a long time to develop my workflow and consistency with my posing as I'm completely self-taught. I wasted a lot of time and money trying to figure stuff out on my own. Don't do what I did. Hire a newborn photography mentor. I'm extremely particular about my work and I'll teach you to be the same. If you want to learn to get your posing and flow perfect, then my mentoring class should be just what you're looking for! Fill out your registration form here.
Perfect Pose 1:1 Mentoring in Calgary AB
NOW AVAILABLE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS LIVING AND WORKING IN CALGARY!
Perfect Pose hands-on mentoring has been designed to focus on helping you achieve flawless beanbag posing and an efficient transition flow. I also include styling, wrapping, prop posing, calming and soothing baby, studio lighting and angles, shooting angles, handling and getting variety with difficult babies, and more! You'll have the opportunity to watch me pose and shoot a full session and then go through the poses on your own (with my assistance) and you can shoot each pose for your own portfolio. Classes take place in my SE Calgary (Alberta) studio. I shoot with a strobe but since the class is posing based, natural light photographers are welcome. Classes are available any day of the week. The start time is 9:00am and we will be working with the models until approximately 6:00pm, with an hour break for lunch and Q&A. Then we will spend the final hour on editing and using my Photoshop actions. I recommend you have some knowledge of working in Photoshop prior to the class. Snacks, drinks, and lunch will be provided. You'll also take home a swag bag full of beautiful props! I include my Photoshop action set, a posing guide, a discount code for my posing videos, and you'll have access to a private online group.
A Perfect Pose mentoring class is best for a professional photographer who already has some experience photographing newborns. You should have a professional level DSLR (full frame is recommended) and a good understanding of shooting in manual mode as I won't be teaching camera use. But I will explain the settings I use so you're able to get the best result in my studio. We'll go over my choice of lighting and my preferred lighting angles. I recommend bringing either a 50mm or 35mm prime lens (or both), extra memory cards, batteries, charger and a notebook/pen. The retainer is 50% of your class. The balance is due one month prior to the class date. Save $100 by paying in full at time of booking (more than a month in advance of your class). Register here. You may pay your retainer below through Paypal. An email transfer may also be sent to email@example.com.
Perfect Practice Posing Refresher
This hands-on posing class is a half day class taken after a 1:1 class. It will give you a bit of extra practice and help solidify what you've learned. You will run the session with a model baby and I'll assist where needed. It can be taken the day after the posing class, or at a later date. I highly recommend taking the refresher! A 50% retainer is taken at booking.
Sneak Peek Workshop
You'll come to my studio and watch me shoot one full session that includes beanbag flow, props, wraps and parent posing (mom & baby), while explaining my steps. Learn lighting angles, shooting angles, styling, and handling difficult babies. We'll start at 9:00am and finish with the posing around 1:00pm. Then we'll have lunch (we order Skip!) and some time for Q&A. Book this class for yourself or for you and a friend (must book together).If you'd like me to travel to your studio, please email and ask! If I can make it work I definitely will.
*Attendees don't handle the babies during workshops, except to assist. You can use all photos taken for your portfolio. You'll receive a prop swag bag, lunch/snacks/drinks, Q&A, a posing guide, 50% off my Photoshop actions and posing videos, and a private online group. A 50% retainer is taken at booking.
