FOCUSED Photography Workshops this summer...

Five summers ago I had several beginning photographers ask me if they could come alongside to watch everything I do and be able to ask all about it...I wanted to help but I didn't want to do all of that in front of a client so I started hosting and teaching FOCUSED Photography Workshops. And I've been teaching a few a year ever since and I love it! I posted the sneak preview earlier this spring but now I'm ready to tell you the details! This year I'm going to do something I've never done before (which I totally love doing!) I'm going to do a Wedding FOCUSED Photography Workshop! This is going to be incredible.

Up to 12 people will be able to join the experience of two wedding stories. I have models lined up (2 couples - girls dressed in a wedding dresses and suits for the boys!) AND the whole focus of the workshop is to teach you about telling the story of love. "The big story" is the one we all understand and relate to...Cinderella meets her prince Charming. And "the individual story" is all learning the couple and telling their journey of love. Every couple is different! Your job as the photographer is to learn them and tell their story. (Seriously, THE greatest job in the world!)

Who should attend?

Aspiring and/or established photographers who want to freshen up their portfolios and learn new technical and creative photography techniques. *Specifically for photographers interested in understanding the business of weddings and desiring to expand their wedding portfolio. Learn how photojournalism to tell the couples story through pictures!

Cost Includes:

- Over 5 hours of hands-on training with Noemi Hedrick

- Live styled models to add to your portfolio

- Signed model releases on file to ensure you have the rights to use the images you shoot

- Technical & Creative on the spot training

- Learn how to get consistently accurate exposures in changing lighting situations

- Interacting with models, natural posing techniques, capturing images with impact that will stand the test of time

- Q&A during and after shoot to discuss challenges


Bring your digital SLR camera and a smile:)

Preferred lens is a 70-200mm to keep everyone at the same shooting distance so we don't get in each other's way. You can bring other lenses as long as you are considerate and avoid standing in front of other attendees during the shoot. All gear should be stored on your person to keep you mobile. Bring paper and pen for on-the-go note-taking.

Date - Saturday, July 28th, 2012 Time - 2:00p.m. - 7p.m. Location - Meeting Location will be emailed to attendees. Cost $149.00 (The cost includes the newly release E-book - $20 value) Level: Advanced (some prior knowledge of DSLR functions needed)

If you are a photographer interested in putting together a portfolio of weddings - this is for you! If you are just starting and weddings are what you eventually want to do - this is for you! If you just graduated from film school but want some hands on experience - this is for you! If you want to have fun and learn more about telling a story with your camera - this is for you!

I have 2 gorgeous Cinderellas and their handsome princes lined up to captured by you! I can't wait! Probably going to be my favorite Workshop to date so I hope you can come.
