This past weekend I travelled to Norfolk, VA to learn from one of my favorite mentors in the photography industry: Audrey Rose Photography! I have been following Audrey’s blog for quite some time, and already learned so much just from her educational blog posts, so when I saw she was offering a workshop I knew I had to go!
Saturday night I met up with Audrey and the other workshop attendees for a meet and greet dinner. I am so glad I got to attend the pre-workshop dinner. It was such a nice ice breaker to get to know the other talented photographers who were there to learn along side me on Sunday. I knew I had to get a good night’s sleep after the dinner to be ready for the full day of learning on Sunday!
Sunday’s full day workshop did not disappoint! We covered so many topics and Audrey answered all of our questions surrounding lighting, posing, composition, the complete client experience from inquiry all the way to delivery and beyond! She covered the business side, going over SEO, blogging, social media, pricing, and workflows. Not to mention the beautiful styled shoot put together by Audrey and so many other talented vendors! I am stuffed to the brim full of knowledge to start putting into practice, and so thankful for wonderful new friends in the industry. Audrey, thank you again so much for pouring into all of us workshop attendees and being such an inspiration to me!
Check out a few behind the scenes photos (some iPhone and some by the wonderful Corrin Jazinski), my new headshot by Audrey, and of course a sneak peek from the styled shoot!
I was in complete dog heaven and couldn't get enough of Charlotte and Henry, Audrey's sweet corgis!
What a fun group of people to learn alongside with! :)
