If you’re interested in moving past the basic automatic settings on your camera and taking PRO quality photographs, we have a couple of great workshops coming up this summer.
First, Teresa is doing some portfolio shooting in Minneapolis on August 1st (and possibly August 2nd if we have enough people interested in a second day). This is for photographers with DSLRs that know a little bit about their camera but are tired of making “snapshots”. They’re looking to add depth and interest to their compositions and expand their tool kit when it comes to lighting and posing. You don’t need to be GOING PRO, but maybe you’d like your work to look like you are?
We won’t be shooting in a studio at all — it will be outdoors, with possibly some indoors but on location, not using studio-type lighting. This type of workshop will be great learning as we move from location to location setting up shots and getting the lighting right. No sitting in a classroom, no business lectures, no paperwork or handouts. We will set up shots, troubleshoot, talk about composition and lighting as we go and learn, learn, learn. Lots of walking and lots of fun. The cost to you is $500 per day. Maximum of 6 people in the group shooting with live models.
Secondly, Teresa is holding her third annual Studio Shooters Unleashed at her studio in Dallas on July 10-12. July in Dallas is a great time to stay indoors and experiment with light and all types of equipment. Learn the ins and outs of a working studio. We’ll use anything and everything to create beautiful portraits using Teresa’s props, backdrops and equipment. All you bring is your camera. Because we have a little more time, we’ll go deeper into exposure, metering, adding people to your shots, multiple dogs, litters of puppies, using unusual props, and more. We cater in lunches so we can maximize our time. We’ll have an optional group dinner at the end of the first day so everyone can relax and get to know each other. Cost for this two day workshop is $995. Maximum of 10 people.
I you are interested in either of these workshops, please email us at TERESA@TERESABERG.com or call the studio at 972-250-2415 and we will send you the registration email with more details. Payment in full is due when you register and is non-refundable. If you find out later that you cannot attend, you can sell your seat to another photographer, but we do not issue refunds.
You can pay via paypal, credit card or check. Discount hotel rooms will be available in just up the street for $64 per night at the Springhill Suites Marriott. This price includes breakfast and internet! If you’re flying in, check flights into DFW or DAL. Southwest Airlines recently opened up many affordable flights in and out of Dallas, so check them and American Airlines. You will not need a rental car in Dallas as we usually have plenty of drivers to shuttle people back and forth from the hotel to the studio. Lunches and snacks are included.
So grab a seat and launch a fun summer with your camera and a four-legged friend!
