Finding You. Cresskill NJ 2018.

It is back for 2018. My most popular, most inclusive, most AMAZING workshop.

This workshop is the opportunity to find your inspiration, individualism and creativity and make magic with me while we break the rules that bind you. This workshop is intended to guide you towards breaking down your walls, while gently looking inward to recognize your fears and working to bring you towards a greater level of confidence. In this workshop you will look IN, not OUT to find the answers you desire. There are no required cameras, lenses or other commercial necessities. All that is required is YOU.

In order to create the art you want to make, you have to tell your own story. You need to find yourself. You need to see with YOUR eyes and feel with YOUR heart. You need to make the choice to pave the way to your own soul with a clear voice and visual intent. This time together will teach you to speak clearly through your images with no apologies. It will teach you to back up your work with your own voice. It will attempt to reach out to you in a way that will teach you to not care what your friends and colleagues think.

The workshop will begin on Friday, September 14th in the afternoon. We will meet at my studio and say our hellos and travel to NYC together for a maternity shoot . We will focus on posing, lighting, and connection with your subjects. We will then enjoy dinner together.

On Saturday morning we will meet again at the studio for a class on my indoor studio lighting with TWO newborns, focussing on posing, workflow and lighting. The lighting is simple, affordable and can be utilized in any kind of space.

We will then break until 2 hours before sunset.

We will then head to the forest where we will work with a beautifully styled child model and focus on posing and connection with your subject AND the environment. We will discuss the concept of using the environment and its elements as a prop instead of relying on outside objects. Once it is dark, we will finish and go out for dinner.

On Sunday we will join together again at the studio where I will shoot a demonstration of my studio lighting AND indoor shooting with natural light. You will also have an opportunity to shoot. We will then have lunch together. We will then take a short break and head back to NYC where we will shoot a group of children in a different location until dark followed by a final farewell NYC dinner.

You will be provided with a credit towards editing videos.
