Thank you so much for being here to check out what I have to say about my workshop! I am so excited to be able to pass along some of my love and knowledge of this business to others, as well as learn from other photographers I meet along the way. I spend so.much.money. a month paying on student loans for a Secondary Education degree I no longer use; I would be so honored to be able to continue teaching somehow, especially when it comes to doing what I love!
This workshop is going to be held on April 16 and is limited to 10 attendees in order to assure an intimate experience with more than enough time to answer everyone’s questions and cover all topics. Each workshop seat includes 8 hours of instructional time, participation in a family session, a new business headshot, lunch, a Q+A session at the end of the night, a special gift for you, admittance into a private mentoring group and much more! Make sure to email me if you’re interested in learning more about film, too. Keep reading for more details 🙂
Part of this workshop will be how to master in-camera settings. Truly knowing your camera is the first step in producing amazing photos, reducing post processing time, and becoming happier with your business. We will discuss all Manual settings, what they do and mean, cover White Balance and make sure your photos look their absolute best SOOC (straight out of camera). In my opinion, this is absolutely key in taking your photo quality and business to the next level. I hope that you’ll never consider shooting in Auto again!
You will learn the technical and business side of the photography business, which includes marketing & social media, booking your ideal client, contracts, client interaction, pricing, setting yourself apart in a saturated market and more.
We will also be shooting a family session (indoor vs. outdoor TBD). During this time, attendees will learn all about posing,”finding the light”, making your clients comfortable in front of the camera, styling details and more. Creating an emotional connection between the clients, the camera, and even your potential clients is vital when it comes to being unique in this business. I’ll discuss how to create emotion in your images, as well as anticipate the perfect shot before it happens.
Immediately following the shoot, the attendees will be walked through my post-processing workflow including culling, a light editing review, exporting, client delivery and blogging. In addition to the family shoot, we will also be covering how to pose couples.
Lastly, there is an optional Film Add-On for attendees interested in learning the basics of film. This is a separate online course; email me for more info!
What you’ll need:
A DSLR camera and whatever you’d like for note taking! If you have a laptop with your editing software on it, feel free to bring it along. It would be helpful to locate all of the buttons and settings on your camera before the workshop. We will cover how and when to use them, but we won’t have to waste time locating them for you in your camera for you!

“This was the first workshop I’d ever attended and it exceeded all my expectations! Halee is one of the kindest individuals you will ever meet, not to mention she’s crazy talented, and she made me feel right at home. I loved attending a real lifestyle session and learning the ins and outs of running a business. I would totally attend every workshop you ever host for the rest of my life if it wasn’t creepy of me to do so.”
“Um would it be insane for me to travel another 10 hours from Memphis to go to another of your workshops?? Probably so, but it would be so worth it. I LOVED it so much!! You’re an amazing photographer and I am so lucky to have learned from you. Probably the thing I enjoyed the most was just watching you interact with your clients! I also learned so much about how to run a business! Your next workshoppers are in for a treat.”
A blog post from one of the attendees at my last workshop, Auleen Kerzan:
*Please note that I am not going to be spending a lot of time teaching about Photoshop and heavy editing. This is not an editing/photoshop workshop.
