Whether you are an experienced professional or entering the industry, this workshop will provide a wealth of knowledge, proven business strategies and a mentor in Kath who loves seeing her protégées succeed. 

Key Topics:

The art of photographing NEWBORNS

Now it’s time to switch focus and watch your creations come to life. Kath will demonstrate her unique editing techniques that perfect images into sophisticated finished products using Lightroom and Photoshop. Kath will demonstrate how to develop your own Lightroom preset. Kath will edit 1 newborn image and 1 sitter image from Raw file to fine art portraiture.

Business and Marketing

The remainder of the afternoon will take attention off the spotlight and into the nitty gritty of running a successful photography business. It is one thing to take great images and another to create a thriving business; an area that Kath sees many talented photographers fall short. Kath will outline the key marketing, sales and business strategies that she has used to grow the business year after year. Most crucial to Kath success is her ability to sell a session and secure repeat and referral business. Pricing and products will also be covered intensively.

We will discuss:

In the Outdoor and Indoor Photography training full day we start at 10 am and finish at 8 pm. We go through everything in detail from:

  • -Natural light and how we can make the most of light of all kinds whether too dark and dreadful (harsh weather conditions are great too and I will show you how to work your magic in extreme climates) or too sunny (even a sunny day with too many harsh highlights and shadows can lead to amazing images).

  • -Posing (a complete posing guide for family photoshoots will be provided to you so that the next time you step out to do a family photoshoot, you know exactly what you are going to be doing.)
