    SpringHill Suites by Marriott Anchorage Midtown

    $1,349.00

    Welcome to the ultimate REAL Wedding Workshop Experience! If you’re looking to up your game as a wedding photographer, if you’re looking to add some great shots to your wedding website and portfolio and deliver the essential items for your wedding clients this is the workshop for YOU! SOLD OUT! 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.

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.

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!

    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!!
