Workshop Update!

We're about 10 days out from the workshop and just about full. Models have been scheduled... we're looking to have at least 3 or 4 models for the 9 students at the workshop!

I've made a special effort yesterday to really put in a hard agenda together with presentations and scheduling that will work for the two days. I've discovered that there's way more material and shooting than can possibly be done in even 7 days so we'll have to be extremely efficient to maximize the learning and shooting for each photographer. Here are some of my notes for the workshop:

Multiple beauty setups: I don't wan't anyone standing around waiting to shoot so I'm setting up 3-4 beauty stations each with a different lighting setup. After going through each station with everyone and presenting the setup, we'll have photographers rotate through and shoot each station.

-Multiple fashion/editorial setups: Same as above but different :)

Getting your foot in the door: I nearly forgot about this segment of the workshop! I've put together a small presentation for how I approached the modeling agencies in the beginning that is nearly a bulletproof plan for "getting in".

Soft skills: I haven't ironed this portion out but there are a lot of little things that go into a great shoot. A few talking points will be; building rapport, projecting confidence, clear communication, and having fun. I will go over some own "learning lessons" (read: failures) to show you what I'm talking about!

The full agenda for the workshop should go out latest today or tomorrow morning! :)
