Workshops Website: workshops.jasonlanierproductions.com

Meet Ups with Jason Lanier is a group formed to have monthly in-person and online meet ups with award winning photographer Jason Lanier. Regularly scheduled in-person meet ups will occur monthly in Southern California where Jason lives. Jason will also schedule meet ups when he travels across the United States while either shooting or conducting one of his workshops. In addition to the in-person meet ups, Jason will provide monthly online sessions where the group can get together from around the world and conduct a meet up online!

Each session will have separate pricing and location information. The purpose of this group is for us to get together as photographers and for me (Jason) to provide you with help as needed. Having taught workshops across the United States for over the last three years I am very well versed and comfortable with helping photographers of all different skill levels and backgrounds.

Shoots will consist of a variety of different types including using models, night photography, day photography and more. We will work on composition, exposure, lighting, posing, and other topics that the group would like to cover.

This group page will also contain all the information and registration for my workshops across the United States. I'm so grateful for all of you joining this group and hope to make great connections and have an amazing time with all of you!

Wedding is taking place in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Anchorage, Alaska!! This is a very special workshop because the couple is eloping! That means this gives us one of the most unique opportunities ever, the ability to devote an entire wedding day to epic wedding photography where every attendee will load up into a helicopter where we are transported to 4 or 5 different unbelievable locations that are only reachable by Helicopter, meaning you will get shots that NOBODY else has. This is a CAREER CHANGER!! Itinerary: *May 31st- optional team dinner at 7pm! Get to meet Jason and his crew and share a dinner with them to bond before the workshop begins. Get ready to laugh, share stories, and create friendships that will last a lifetime! *June 1st- Approximately 2-9pm- wedding shoot with models. This day is the day before the wedding where we will be going out with models in wedding themed attire to do shoots all over the beautiful Anchorage area. This is the day where Jason will prepare all of the workshop attendees to help them be ready for the big REAL day that follows. Jason will share his secrets for lighting, posing, and directing the wedding couple for phenomenal award winning results. It's going to be a master class on wedding photography. *June 2nd- Approximately 2-9pm- the WEDDING DAY! We will start the day with a wedding ceremony at a beautiful outdoor location in Anchorage. Following that it's up into the SKY where we will board privately chartered helicopters to go to some of the most beautiful locations to do wedding photography. It's going to be absolutely surreal. June is an incredible time to shoot in Alaska, and the wedding images from this day will truly set you apart from ALL of your competition. *What's included? Transportation including car and helicopter service are included in the cost of the registration. Attendees are responsible for any travel expenses to and from Alaska and for hotel accommodations in Anchorage. --About REAL Wedding Workshops-- Have you ever wanted to shoot a destination wedding with an award winning photographer and get his pointers throughout the entire wedding? Have you ever wanted to shoot a real wedding at a venue where award winning photographers shoot? Have you ever wanted to attend a workshop and keep the images to build your own portfolio? Well, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!! Jason carefully picks the weddings that he will use for workshops taking into account the ceremony and reception venues as well as insuring that the couple gives him the appropriate amount of time to allow the group to do an amazing couple shoot on the wedding day so he can take full advantage of everything the venues have to offer. BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS WORKSHOP CAN BENEFIT ALL SKILL LEVELS. For those who are just starting out this will be incredibly eye opening. For those who have shot weddings and are looking for that next step...THIS. IS. IT. FAQ's *Where is the nearest major airport? Anchorage (ANC) *Is there shuttle service provided from the airport? No, there is not. Attendees are responsible to get themselves to the meeting location which is the Marriott Midtown Springhill Suites. *Where is Jason staying? Where do I stay? Jason is staying at the Marriott Midtown Springhill Suites. You are welcome to book your own room or stay somewhere nearby. *What about GEAR? Do I need a ton of gear? Does it matter what brand I shoot? No, you do not need a lot of gear at all. In fact with the way that Jason uses LED lighting at his weddings the attendees will all be able to benefit from his lighting to get phenomenal shots. In regards to brands it doesn't matter AT ALL. Any brand of camera can take great shots in the right hands....so use the right gear that works for you. For the optimal experience we recommend having at least 1 portrait lens (85mm or 50mm), a zoom [masked]mm), and a wide (16-35mm or in that range). Those certainly aren't required but people always ask about what they should ideally have and those are Jason's go to wedding lenses. *So do I get to use all the images I take at the workshop for my own use...really? Yep! That's the entire concept behind this specific type of workshop. I'm trying to help photographers to pursue their dream of having killer portfolios so they can further their career. *Do I have to handle my own travel accommodations and expenses? Yes you do to Alaska. You DO NOT have to pay for the helicopter rides on the day of the wedding. That's included in the cost of the workshop. *Do I have to pay the entire registration fee upfront? What is the refund policy? Space is very limited so all registrations do need to be paid upfront. Refunds are provided only in the event that the workshop was canceled by Jason. *I'm just beginning, will I really get a lot out of this workshop? Yes you will! I truly wish there would have been this type of wedding workshop available when I started because it would have saved me from making so many mistakes in my career. *I'm a seasoned pro, will this help? Absolutely! Need to spice up your portfolio? Need to get out of the rut? Need an entirely different look and feel for your style and portfolio? This is for you! *Is there any preparatory information or services provided before the workshop? Yes, Jason and/or his team will post updates and answer questions for those who are registered right here on the Meetup page. *What is the maximum amount of people allowed? There will be a cap of 10 attendees to allow everyone time and space to get great shots. *How will I get a release from the bride and groom? The structure of a REAL Wedding Workshop is that all attendees are technically second shooting the wedding with Jason Lanier. As such the wedding contract and release that the wedding client signs with Jason already stipulates that the attendees are allowed to use all images taken for their own personal and professional use. *Are there any extra fees associated with the workshop that I should know about? Nope! Jason keeps it very simple. Jason's team will be shooting video and documenting the wedding workshop. *What happens if the wedding is called off? While this has never happened there definitely needs to be a plan in place if it does. If the wedding couple were to call off the wedding (again it's very rare. In Jason's entire career of 300 weddings it's only happened once), the workshop would be held as scheduled but models would be brought in to take the place of the wedding couple. The workshop would take place in the same city and on the same dates. We do this because so many of the attendees take time off of work, book flights and hotels etc so simply rescheduling the workshop is not a viable option. In addition to the workshop, all attendees would then be given a credit towards a complete registration to attend another REAL Wedding or Standard Workshop at no cost to them so they could experience the entire REAL Wedding Workshop experience.
