The Beginner Photography Workshop is for those who are brand new to their cameras. We go over the basics of how to take beautiful photos without using auto. 

This 3 hour workshop will be the perfect foundation for a newbie, with less talk about the technical things that tend to be confusing, and more talk of practical tips for documenting your life. This class is limited to 8 attendees so that there's time for hands-on help!

Beginner Photography Workshop

INSTAGRAM FOR SMALL BUSINESS

NEW! By popular demand, a class for those who don't have a real camera but still want to take gorgeous shots! This instagram class will cover how to take better photos with your phone, lighting, editing tricks (and the apps I personally use), as well as tips for speaking to your audience and reaching your ideal client on Instagram.

This is not a class about how to gain 10, 000 followers. It's about creating an authentic feed that engages your followers and allows them to share in your creative life. It's about documenting your work in a way that is meaningful and fulfilling. It's a quick, fun class that's available over your lunch hour!

INTRO TO BLOGGING

I started blogging about my photography business when I sold my first session on Kijiji in 2011.

I started blogging about our family when I found out I was pregnant with our first, back in 2013.

Since then, I've learned a lot about writing, what it feels like to write when you think no one is reading, and how a journey is better when it's shared with those around you. This intro to blogging course is less about how to set up a header image that's 900 pixels wide, and more about how to reach an audience that matters to you, how to get your photos to appear on Google Images, and how to create content that feels authentic and meaningful for your family or business.

DATES

This instagram class will cover how to take better photos with your phone, lighting, editing tricks (and the apps I personally use), as a way to document your personal life. 

This is the perfect class for mama who want to capture their little ones, free spirits who want to leave the camera at home while they travel, and for the latte art lover who just can't seem to take an insta-worthy shot of her favourite morning bevvy. Specific enough? I thought so. This is a quick, fun class that you'll surely love!

Here are a few frequently asked questions that may help!

QUESTIONS?

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

The beginner photography workshop requires you to have a digital SLR camera, but it doesn't have to be fancy! You'll also need a charged battery and a small memory card for test shooting. For the instagram and blogging workshops, you'll only need your phone! Bring a charger just in case!

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFOREHAND?

I've had beginners in the photography workshop who hadn't even turned on their camera before the class. It really is a beginner class, and I'll get you up to speed pretty quick. We don't move forward until everyone is at the same level. 

HOW DO I CONFIRM MY SEAT?

Full payment is required to confirm your seat at any workshop. As soon as you register, you'll receive the instructions for how to complete your payment and solidify your spot. The only thing that's not included with the pricing you see here is the HST!  

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?

Although I'm not able to offer a refund on your workshop ticket, you're able to transfer your spot to someone you know. Simply provide a name and email address for who will be taking your spot, and they're all set!
