KEYNOTE: Chasing Light: Behind the Scenes
Limited Capacity seats available

Documenting a widely-admired and closely scrutinized individual is an immense responsibility, and one Amanda Lucidon fulfilled to great acclaim. As one of only a few female White House photographers in history, Amanda Lucidon spent four years documenting First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama. Can we say dream job? This talk goes behind the scenes of some of the most powerful moments in Lucidon’s collection of photographs of the First Lady, offering a rare insider’s perspective on her experiences as a photographer and discussing the powerful impact of visual imagery on our past, present, and future.

Amanda will speak photographer to photographer. She will discuss her approach to documentary photography, share how she evokes emotion in the viewer while striving to create a connection between the viewer and a diverse set of people and places, and discuss her triumphs and challenges during her time in the White House. Finally, as a trailblazer in an industry typically dominated by men, Amanda will speak candidly about her experiences and how we as women can lift each other as we climb in our professions.

Amanda will also host a book signing after her keynote. A limited number of copies of her New York Times bestselling book, Chasing Light, will be on hand. Attendees may also purchase a copy in advance at Amazon.com.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn tangible techniques and tools for pose building and ideas for inspiration
- Learn the building blocks needed to creatively and authentically pose a family in a natural looking way

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: A Window Anywhere: Embracing LED Light for Still Life & Food that Looks 100% Natural
Limited Capacity seats available

Light is always the heart of photography, but what do you do if the light you adore is not cooperating? By approaching LED lights in the way she approaches natural light, Caroline came up with a method that makes LED lighting look 100% natural, no matter the time of day or the weather outside. What started as an attempt to get food images in the middle of the night, blossomed into a studio for portraits and still life as well. Join Caroline in creating images that mimic the use of window light. Lens preference: A medium prime (35-50mm) or a standard zoom (24-70mm) is preferred. Participants should be aware that they may be shooting down at a flat lay set, so longer lenses may be cumbersome. Experience shooting in manual is preferred, but the instructor will call out settings for beginners to plug into their cameras.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to create a believable 'window' with LED lighting, anywhere
- Learn why your frustrations with light can be a thing of the past
- Learn how to place your subject and frame your subject to best mimic a natural window scene

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Dreamy Seascapes
Limited Capacity filling up

Join Kristen Ryan and capture creative seascapes with filters, intentional camera setting choices, and perspective. You will begin with a discussion of basic settings for beach photography. Surveying the environment, you will consider how you can use foreground, shoreline, and perspective to add depth to seascapes. Kristen will then demonstrate ways to capture the entire dynamic range of the scene including using a graduated filter, multiple exposures or exposing for the best possible single exposure. She'll talk about the various shutter speed options for capturing the ocean and kind of image you will achieve with each. Finally, you'll see Kristen demonstrate the use of a neutral density filter to capture long exposures. Following the demonstration and discussion of these concepts, there will be time for questions, discussion, and student shooting. Those with tripods and filters can experiment with long exposures and those without can focus on composition and dialing-in the ideal exposure. It is recommended that students have experience shooting in manual mode. It is also recommended that highlight warnings are turned on in-camera and that students know how to turn on bracketing in camera. If bringing a neutral density filter, a Little Stopper (6 stops) or Big Stopper (10 stops) is recommended. Tripods and filters are recommended for trying the various techniques but are not required to attend the session. All attendees are welcome to observe and learn for later practice if they don’t have a tripod or filters accessible.

Learning Objectives:
- Learn basic settings for seascapes and how to compose for depth at the beach
- Learn how to capture the dynamic range using a graduated filter, multiple exposures, and histogram evaluation

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Why We Play: Creating Lasting Moments & Imagery
Limited Capacity seats available

As photographers, we are charged with the incredibly important task of creating a visual legacy for those who are in front of our cameras. We want our photos to capture not only how our subjects looked, but how they lived and how they loved. Join Virgina in this shooting boutique, as you reframe your approach and using play-based, moment-driven, child-centered methods, can help your subjects be who they truly are. This shift allows the photographer to capture the unique connections, love, silliness, quirks, and imperfect perfectness of the people in front of the camera. When you create opportunities for children and families to play together, you can not only give your subjects images that they will cherish, but memories that will last forever. In these photo sessions, the experience matters just as much as the photos that you create.

This shooting class will examine not only how to lead a play-based, moment-driven family photography session, but will explore why Virginia feels it’s such a vital perspective to use throughout both your professional and personal photography. Watch Virginia conduct a family photography session using her play-based methods and have opportunities to shoot in groups to get real-time practice using the tools from class. Virginia is an open book and will answer any questions candidly and honestly throughout the boutique session and in a Q&A period at the end.

Focal lengths between 24mm and 85mm will be useful for this type of session - Virginia will use a 24-70mm to capture both wide and tight shots that can tell a full story. Experience shooting in manual mode is a bonus, but not required.


Learning Objectives:

- Learn to establish trust with the people you are photographing
- Learn to incorporate a play-based, child-centered approach to photography through connection games and prompts
- Gain tips and tools to encourage playfulness and genuine connections with your subjects
- Get ideas on how to train yourself to shift your perspective and trust yourself
- Understand why the experience of the photo taking matters as much as the photos themselves

PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS: Photographing a Feeling: How to get emotive images from any session
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever been to a photography talk where you were super inspired but left with no tangible ways to implement what you learned? Yeah, this talk hates that talk. This talk wants to inspire you but also not leave you hanging. This talk wants to give you all the tools to take interesting photos that you don’t hate. You don’t have to have naturally candid clients to take emotive images-- that process begins and ends with you.

In this talk you will learn how to get emotive images from every single session. Yep you heard that right --Chloe will cover how to do this for families, couples, weddings. You will go through the importance of connecting with your clients on a deeper level pre-shoot so that you will know the best ways to photograph them. You will learn ways to foster an environment that gives your clients the confidence to be who they are. Chloe will break down exactly how to direct (instead of posing) to achieve more natural-looking images. She will demonstrate how she creates the mood she wants through a method she calls """"mirroring the mood"""" as she works with a real couple on stage. Finally, you will look at composition as a tool and how to use the environment you are in to create photos that are more dynamic. Chloe will help you create photos that make you proud as an artist at every single session.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, Chloe will cry (because she has feelings, too), and you'll learn honest ways to take emotive images at every session.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to connect with your subject pre shoot (a free copy of Chloe's couples questionnaire to use)
- Learn how to foster an environment during your shoot that allows your clients to open up
- Learn how to use directing over posing/mirroring the mood/composition to help ease your subjects into natural images

Students are welcome (and encouraged!) to enter the pool to photograph the models as well. Bring your underwater gear if you have it (whether it's the latest-and-greatest underwater housing or just your iPhone in a waterproof case) and join Elizabeth in the pool to photograph the models, or stay dry and observe the session poolside if you prefer.

Learning Objectives:

Being a photographer is more than setting your own schedule and coffee shop dates with your business besties. For a lot of photographers, what lies behind that perfectly curated Instagram feed is a chaotic, unorganized, and overwhelming day-to-day process that sucks the creativity and fun right out of your photography. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? Creating work you love and putting necessary processes in place will not only keep those photo inquires rolling in but also allow you to walk confidently in your talents without second guessing yourself every step of the way. If your branding could use some tweaking, if you’re still trying to figure out your voice, if you’ve suddenly found yourself pulling all-nighters more than you’d like to admit, if you want to command the price tag you know you deserve or even add a little more soul to your shooting and editing style, well you need to pull up a seat, because this is for you! This class will cover how to create authentic, feel-good images you and your clients will love, how to make every client (shy or otherwise) feel like Beyoncé, how to develop your brand voice + a unique experience that people will buy into before they even know what you’re selling, how to create processes that will provide the ultimate piece of mind for you and a 5-star experience for them, and how to always love what you shoot, love what you do and love who you work with. As a bonus, we’ll cover prep guides for clients, awesome programs and apps for you, editing tips and best practices that will have you living your best photographer life.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to perfect your ‘voice’ to attract the ideal client and work environment
- Learn to operate like a pro and rock any photo session or wedding from inquiry to photo delivery
- Gain insight on the best ways to create authentic, genuine, heart-felt, drool-worthy images you and your clients will love
- Learn easy and effective creative direction for the self-proclaimed “shy” client, “awkward” client and the client who “doesn’t want to be posed”
- Curate a boss process that sets expectations, puts clients at ease, and allows them to look and feel like rockstars before, during and after their photo session
- Learn amazing best practices to deliver a flawless and amazing experience for every client, every time

- Learn tangible techniques and tools for pose building and ideas for inspiration
- Learn the building blocks needed to creatively and authentically pose a family in a natural looking way

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Why We Play: Creating Lasting Moments & Imagery
Limited Capacity seats available

As photographers, we are charged with the incredibly important task of creating a visual legacy for those who are in front of our cameras. We want our photos to capture not only how our subjects looked, but how they lived and how they loved. Join Virgina in this shooting boutique, as you reframe your approach and using play-based, moment-driven, child-centered methods, can help your subjects be who they truly are. This shift allows the photographer to capture the unique connections, love, silliness, quirks, and imperfect perfectness of the people in front of the camera. When you create opportunities for children and families to play together, you can not only give your subjects images that they will cherish, but memories that will last forever. In these photo sessions, the experience matters just as much as the photos that you create.

This shooting class will examine not only how to lead a play-based, moment-driven family photography session, but will explore why Virginia feels it’s such a vital perspective to use throughout both your professional and personal photography. Watch Virginia conduct a family photography session using her play-based methods and have opportunities to shoot in groups to get real-time practice using the tools from class. Virginia is an open book and will answer any questions candidly and honestly throughout the boutique session and in a Q&A period at the end.

Focal lengths between 24mm and 85mm will be useful for this type of session - Virginia will use a 24-70mm to capture both wide and tight shots that can tell a full story. Experience shooting in manual mode is a bonus, but not required.


Learning Objectives:

- Learn to establish trust with the people you are photographing
- Learn to incorporate a play-based, child-centered approach to photography through connection games and prompts
- Gain tips and tools to encourage playfulness and genuine connections with your subjects
- Get ideas on how to train yourself to shift your perspective and trust yourself
- Understand why the experience of the photo taking matters as much as the photos themselves

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Dreamy Seascapes
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Kristen Ryan and capture creative seascapes with filters, intentional camera setting choices, and perspective. You will begin with a discussion of basic settings for beach photography. Surveying the environment, you will consider how you can use foreground, shoreline, and perspective to add depth to seascapes. Kristen will then demonstrate ways to capture the entire dynamic range of the scene including using a graduated filter, multiple exposures or exposing for the best possible single exposure. She'll talk about the various shutter speed options for capturing the ocean and kind of image you will achieve with each. Finally, you'll see Kristen demonstrate the use of a neutral density filter to capture long exposures. Following the demonstration and discussion of these concepts, there will be time for questions, discussion, and student shooting. Those with tripods and filters can experiment with long exposures and those without can focus on composition and dialing-in the ideal exposure. It is recommended that students have experience shooting in manual mode. It is also recommended that highlight warnings are turned on in-camera and that students know how to turn on bracketing in camera. If bringing a neutral density filter, a Little Stopper (6 stops) or Big Stopper (10 stops) is recommended. Tripods and filters are recommended for trying the various techniques but are not required to attend the session. All attendees are welcome to observe and learn for later practice if they don’t have a tripod or filters accessible.

Learning Objectives:
- Learn basic settings for seascapes and how to compose for depth at the beach
- Learn how to capture the dynamic range using a graduated filter, multiple exposures, and histogram evaluation
- Experiment with shutter speed creativity and using neutral density filters for longer exposures

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? Creating work you love and putting necessary processes in place will not only keep those photo inquires rolling in but also allow you to walk confidently in your talents without second guessing yourself every step of the way. If your branding could use some tweaking, if you’re still trying to figure out your voice, if you’ve suddenly found yourself pulling all-nighters more than you’d like to admit, if you want to command the price tag you know you deserve or even add a little more soul to your shooting and editing style, well you need to pull up a seat, because this is for you! This class will cover how to create authentic, feel-good images you and your clients will love, how to make every client (shy or otherwise) feel like Beyoncé, how to develop your brand voice + a unique experience that people will buy into before they even know what you’re selling, how to create processes that will provide the ultimate piece of mind for you and a 5-star experience for them, and how to always love what you shoot, love what you do and love who you work with. As a bonus, we’ll cover prep guides for clients, awesome programs and apps for you, editing tips and best practices that will have you living your best photographer life.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to perfect your ‘voice’ to attract the ideal client and work environment

- Gain insight on the best ways to create authentic, genuine, heart-felt, drool-worthy images you and your clients will love

- Learn amazing best practices to deliver a flawless and amazing experience for every client, every time

BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Why We Play: Creating Lasting Moments & Imagery
Limited Capacity seats available

As photographers, we are charged with the incredibly important task of creating a visual legacy for those who are in front of our cameras. We want our photos to capture not only how our subjects looked, but how they lived and how they loved. Join Virgina in this shooting boutique, as you reframe your approach and using play-based, moment-driven, child-centered methods, can help your subjects be who they truly are. This shift allows the photographer to capture the unique connections, love, silliness, quirks, and imperfect perfectness of the people in front of the camera. When you create opportunities for children and families to play together, you can not only give your subjects images that they will cherish, but memories that will last forever. In these photo sessions, the experience matters just as much as the photos that you create.

This shooting class will examine not only how to lead a play-based, moment-driven family photography session, but will explore why Virginia feels it’s such a vital perspective to use throughout both your professional and personal photography. Watch Virginia conduct a family photography session using her play-based methods and have opportunities to shoot in groups to get real-time practice using the tools from class. Virginia is an open book and will answer any questions candidly and honestly throughout the boutique session and in a Q&A period at the end.

Focal lengths between 24mm and 85mm will be useful for this type of session - Virginia will use a 24-70mm to capture both wide and tight shots that can tell a full story. Experience shooting in manual mode is a bonus, but not required.

- Learn to incorporate a play-based, child-centered approach to photography through connection games and prompts
- Gain tips and tools to encourage playfulness and genuine connections with your subjects
- Get ideas on how to train yourself to shift your perspective and trust yourself

PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS: Photographing a Feeling: How to get emotive images from any session
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever been to a photography talk where you were super inspired but left with no tangible ways to implement what you learned? Yeah, this talk hates that talk. This talk wants to inspire you but also not leave you hanging. This talk wants to give you all the tools to take interesting photos that you don’t hate. You don’t have to have naturally candid clients to take emotive images-- that process begins and ends with you.

In this talk you will learn how to get emotive images from every single session. Yep you heard that right --Chloe will cover how to do this for families, couples, weddings. You will go through the importance of connecting with your clients on a deeper level pre-shoot so that you will know the best ways to photograph them. You will learn ways to foster an environment that gives your clients the confidence to be who they are. Chloe will break down exactly how to direct (instead of posing) to achieve more natural-looking images. She will demonstrate how she creates the mood she wants through a method she calls ""mirroring the mood"" as she works with a real couple on stage. Finally, you will look at composition as a tool and how to use the environment you are in to create photos that are more dynamic. Chloe will help you create photos that make you proud as an artist at every single session.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, Chloe will cry (because she has feelings, too), and you'll learn honest ways to take emotive images at every session.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to connect with your subject pre shoot (a free copy of Chloe's couples questionnaire to use)
- Learn how to foster an environment during your shoot that allows your clients to open up
- Learn how to use directing over posing/mirroring the mood/composition to help ease your subjects into natural images
