Jim Jordan is known across the globe as one of the world’s most renowned celebrity and fashion photographers. He shoots for Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, J Crew, Levi’s, De Beers Diamonds, to name a few, and shoots tons of celebrities including Charlize Theron, Leonardo Dicaprio, Jessica Alba, Drew Berrymore, Mila Kunis, etc. He is a rare gem in the photo industry; Jim has done it all. As the owner of his own photography and production companies, and after spending over 15 years working as a hair & makeup artist with the biggest celebrities and best photographers in the world, Jim has tons of knowledge on every aspect of the photography industry under his belt. As a self-taught photographer with no formal schooling or training, Jim is a true inspiration and is proof that the dream of owning a photography business can be successfully achieved without a photography degree. Participating in one of Jim’s workshops is one of the best investments you can possibly make toward your photography career.

Join Jim at his beautiful location chateau / studio in Calabasas, California on a life-changing adventure that will enhance your photography, your business and your life. Spread over two days, Jim’s workshop is a perfect balance of inspirational lectures, styled shoots with professional models, individual critiquing, and relationship building with Jim and other photographers who will likely become life-long friends. The workshop size is strictly limited to maximize your learning experience. Prepare to be inspired, challenged, informed and entertained as Jim teaches you everything you need to know to succeed in your photography career.

During your time with Jim, he will teach you about every aspect of professional photography. Beginning with his inspiration and approach to photography and business, Jim will teach you how to pose and direct your model, how to communicate and evoke emotion to connect with your subjects, how to find, pitch and update potential clients, the best approach to bidding on a job, how to brand and market yourself as a photographer, how to build a website that is appealing to clients and consistent with your brand, and how to develop and keep up with your social media and marketing.

In addition to everything that Jim will teach you, you will also be photographing professional models with the top leading agencies. Jim will demonstrate his hands-on approach with hair, makeup and styling and will be by your side to instruct and assess you as you communicate with and photograph the models. As an attendee, you will get a private one-on-one mentor session with Jim where you will have the opportunity to ask him any questions you may have and show him a selection of your images to critique. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
