Lodging will be in the Palm Springs area but shooting locations will be at the Salton Sea. Below is a link to the hotel where we will be staying. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/ctdwi-the-westin-desert-willow-villas-palm-desert?program=spg Class size is limited, and the Black Friday Special will only apply to the first 4 people who register. So don't delay! If you're looking for an ADVANCED course on lighting, posing, art direction, styling and bringing it all together....THIS is that course. For many years Jason's followers have asked for an advanced course that skips past the basics and heads straight to the higher end of image creation. We're talking big costumes, multiple light set ups, stylizing and more. We're teaching photographers how to create the shots that they see on videos, magazines and more. This is your chance to really stretch your wings and create something epic. To push your boundaries and really grow. Here's the itinerary: *Day 1: The first day of the workshop is focused on learning the advanced techniques of lighting with live models. This is where we introduce multiple lighting set ups, mixing strobe with continuous lighting and knowing how to use diffusion, reflection and special effects lighting. We're changing colors of lights, painting with light, just going CRAZY! Day 1 will prep you so you can understand how and why Jason uses what he uses on some of the more complex lighting shoots that he does. All photographers will be shooting on this day. Day 2: On day 2 you'll head out with Jason and his team to a pre-planned shooting location where we've already planned wardrobe options that pair perfectly with our location. You'll get a hands on walk thru on how to bring all of the different aspects and elements of the shoot together to create something special. This includes working with the models, how make up and styling is applied, wardrobe selection and most importantly, choosing the right gear to capture it all. Day 2 will be a live shooting demonstration by Jason where he brings you into his world. Think of it as literally being in one of his crazy videos where he really pulls out all of the stops and does some insane lighting, posing, and wardrobe to create some awesome shots. You will be PART of this process on day 2. You will be working with Jason on the lighting, the direction, the build up of the setting and more. The truth is you can't understand how to direct others on a more complex shoot until you've done it. You need to know how to light with multiple lights, how to get more out of your images and really make them POP. This will be a long and fun day where the creativity flows, and your education explodes. Day 3: This is YOUR day to bring all of the advanced lighting techniques that you learned on Day 1 and pair them up with the direction, styling, posing and creativity that you learned in Day 2, and do your own shoot! On this day there will be stations where the models are ready to work with you and your fellow photographers for some really outstanding imagery. Each photographer will be given individualized time with the models so they can create their own work that they can use in their portfolios. All photographers are welcome to bring their own lighting, but we will be providing lighting as well for those who don't have as much as we do..:) If you're looking to up your lighting and image creation game....THIS IS THE WORKSHOP FOR YOU. Are You READY??

  • Philadelphia, PA- 3 DAY Portrait Shooting and EDITING WORKSHOP!

    Marriott - Courtyard

    $1,199.00

    Come join ME in Philadelphia, PA for an unbelievable 3 days of shooting, posing, lighting, composition, and editing as I show you how to Master Your Portraiture by creating amazing images in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Black Friday Special of 20% off runs from November 22-26! Normal price of $1,499 is discounted to $1,199! Valid for first 4 who register only! Please do not contact the listed hotel. They are not affiliated with this event. This is a PORTFOLIO BUILDING WORKSHOP, that aims to enhance ones current skills as a photographer through explicit instruction in the areas of image composition, posing, lighting, editing, communication, and confidence. Not only will you learn how to create amazing images, you will also have opportunity to implement the previously learned skills by directing the models during a timed 1:1 shoot. Your images may be used for your website, prints, marketing and more! Given the practiced skills and guided assistance you surely will be able to create work that will WOW your clients and enhance your portfolio. This workshop is open and available to all shooters from all brands. Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji...DSLR or mirrorless it doesn't matter. Jason will show you how to create amazing work with the gear that you own. All shooters are welcome! Breakdown: *Lighting- No matter what lighting background is, this course is designed specifically to help people master light from a variety of mediums (i.e. natural light, off camera flash, LED lighting, diffusers, reflectors and more). When you master your light, you truly can start creating. And that's when you can start EARNING. *Posing- What’s different about these courses is also the fact that each attendee will learn how to pose the models instead of the models posing for them. Even though we use experienced models there are times during the workshop where the attendees will be able to provide direction to the models in regards to posing. *Shooting- So what are you going to learn as it relates to shooting? A LOT. We’re working on composition, where to cut when shooting subjects, how to blend and bring in backgrounds with your subjects, using props, picking and using the right wardrobe, how make up and styling can make or break a shoot, lighting from all different types of sources, and shooting with different types of gear. *Editing is such an essential part of photography. For years we’ve offered editing courses on their own but now we’re including them in the portrait courses so people can finish what they create on the two days of shooting. We want people to be able to have a complete product when they leave the workshop, and adding the editing session does just that. We will be using Lightroom and Photoshop during these sessions. Day 1 - 1 on 1 Initial Critiques Jason will sit down with each student individually at the beginning of the workshop to review their portfolio and give them tips and tricks for how they can get the most out of the workshop, how to enhance their business/hobby, and how to grow. Day 1 of the workshop will include heavy instruction and hands-on shooting where you get to observe and participate with Jason in the shooting process. Day 2 will provide some more flexibility for the group. This will be a day where those who feel comfortable shooting on their own and building their portfolio will really be able to have some fun. Dedicated stations with lighting and more will be provided with models for the attendees to shoot and get some amazing shots for their portfolio. Day 3 EDITING! This is the day we recap and review images taken over the past few days. We get together for an in class editing session where Jason shows you how he edits from start to finish and the workflow for success. In the world of photography TIME IS MONEY. The photographers who not only deliver an excellent product, but also do it QUICKLY are the ones who are successful. We will show you how to do both. See you soon!!
