I've developed a loose curriculum to give us plenty of freedom but also a little structure.


I've developed a loose curriculum to give us plenty of freedom but also a little structure.


step  1

Understanding the theory

 

  • Understanding the phycology behind what creates a strong image.
  • Developing an artistic toolkit.
  • Using surrealist compositions to keep our viewers eye engaged.

Pretty much all the basics to get you in the right mindset to learn and create


step 2

Mastering the shoot

The shoot is on,

We'll work on our hands on skills under pressure of a real shoot. 

  • Communication
  • Directing body language under physical stress
  • Helping your subjects see what you see
  • Keeping models comfortable in a physically intensive scenario.

You'll learn the skills you'll need to handle the physical and creative challenges associated with one of my shoots. All while keeping your subjects upbeat, engaged and injury-free.


step 3

Post production & the money side of things.

We'll spend our time editing photos and discussing advanced artistsic concepts such as:

  • Understanding and finding the right light.
  • Color theory
  • Psycho-emotional tonal mapping

Pretty much any edit questions you have I'm here to help!

Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions


 

Whats a typical day like? Are we gonna be stuck inside the whole time?

Not at all! The best classroom is the one right outside.  

Just like being back in school, the most important part of the day was recess. Getting to play while you learn helps you internalize information and can teach us so much more than sitting in the classroom does.

We'll spend our day exploring, shooting and learning on the go. Working with real world examples of theories go further than any powerpoint ever could.

 

Where are we staying and how do I get there?

Moab

Nestled in the heart of Utah, Moab sits between some of the most magnificent national parks in the world.

We'll be staying in the devils Garden campground inside Arches national park, or along the Colorado river just east of Moab. these campsites can easily accommodate our group and a few cars.

Getting there:

 Fly into Salt lake city (SLC) and drive to Moab. (about 4 hours)

Or

Fly direct into Moab (CNY). I love this one cause the flights only $120 from salt lake, and you get to sit in one of those fancy private jets.

 

Yosemite

Depending on availability we'll be staying at the epic lower pines campground inside Yosemite valley.

Theres a great group site right in the middle of the campground which can accommodate our group as well as up to 5 cars with overflow lots nearby.

Getting there:

Fly into San Francisco (SFO) (SJC) and drive. Thats about 4 hours.

Or

 Fly into Yosemite (MMH) which puts you about 30 minutes outside the park. United flies into MMH for about $150 from major cities. 

 

 


 

 

How do I know you won't just take my money and run?

To ensure peace of mind for both of us I use a standard workshop attendee contract.

It outlines my responsibilities to you and vice versa. Making sure we all know what to expect from our time together. It also covers how we can alleviate any issues that might arise (like a freak hurricane in Utah?)

 

What do I bring?

Your camera is the only thing you absolutely need. However, I would also recommend, computer for editing, You'll want Adobe's CC lightroom/photoshop bundle installed.

 Pretty much anything you'd need for a national park visit. Tent, sleeping bag, water etc. I rent these from local outdoor retailers wherever I go. 

You're providing some food? What kind of diet options will there be?

Thats right. Ill be bringing along coolers worth of snacks and goodies for the grill. Nothing crazy so if you have any specific you want I would bring it with you.

 

Can I bring a friend to enjoy these places with?

Absolutely yes! 

However, During any instruction or group activity we'll want to keep our group to core attendees as to maintain a low profile and not draw attention in the national park.
