Get Real Workshop
The get real Workshop
in Estero FL at the Hyatt Regency Coconut point!
Weddings are hard
Or at least they can be. From the outside it probably looks like I shoot perfect weddings with perfect clients. The reality is that my clients are regular people who hate being photographed as much as everyone else. I deal with less than epic venues, and generally have the same difficulties as you probably have. The difference is how I handle those problems. What I want to teach you is that from start to finish my process is highly refined. Everything from fielding emails, shooting, post production, and marketing is calculated based on 10 years of actually doing it. In those 10 years I have had enormous success and also enormous failure. The theme for my seminar is GET REAL. On top of inspiration and technique I am going to lay down the reality about how to be a full time destination wedding photographer that shoots 40+ weddings a year. It isn't the sexiest part of the job and it often goes untaught at many workshops. That is what makes this workshop unique and especially inspiring. If you want to take your photography and your business to the next level then it's time to get real.

From 8am to about 2pm will be the "everything else" portion. All of the non-shooting information. We will start at 8am SHARP and break for lunch. After lunch we will continue as long as we need to. I anticipate we'll finish around 2. After that we will head outside with our awesome models and learn some posing and lighting.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is intended for people who have experience shooting, or second shooting weddings and want to improve their craft and build their business. If you have never shot a wedding, or if you have only ever second shot one or two weddings this workshop may go over your head. That being said there will be a TON of information that will help you grow as a photographer. This is the workshop I wish existed when I was in my 4th year of shooting weddings.
Also, you do not HAVE to edit with Mastin Labs presets, but I will only be going over how I edit using Mastin Labs. Other editing processes are great, and I will give you as much knowledge as I can. But my expertise is in using Mastin Labs film presets.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: $700. SUCH A STEAL.
Q: How do I pay for the workshop?
A: You can send the money via PayPal, Venmo, or Square.
Q: I'm not a full time wedding photographer. Is this workshop for me?
A: Maybe! This workshop is intended for people who have experience shooting, or second shooting weddings and want to improve their craft and build their business. If you have never shot a wedding, or if you have only ever second shot one or two weddings this workshop may go over your head. That being said there will be a TON of information that will help in lots of ways.
Q: I'm not a wedding photographer. Will this workshop help me?
A: Yes, but not nearly as much as someone who shoots primarily weddings. I find that business models vary widely within different specialties. You will learn a lot in this workshop regardless, but the focus is on weddings.
Q: What kind of gear do I need to bring?
A: A full frame DSLR and a 50mm lens are ideal. But you can bring any DSLR or mirrorless cameras and you can also use zoom lenses. I recommend having a lens that is at least F 2.8 or faster. If you are unsure about your gear just send me a note and I can go over everything with you.
