Our DOG SHOTS workshop, scheduled for Saturday February 25th is now open for registration. This is our most basic workshop with emphasis on using the manual settings on your camera for great pet portraits.
Most of the attendees at DOG SHOTS are animal rescue volunteers and pet lovers who really want to move in to professional quality portraits. The only requirement is that you use a camera that has manual settings, like DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. It’s a great way to learn to use light and all the tricks for getting the dog to pose and look at the camera.
We meet at the Teresa Berg Photography studio in Dallas and then go to the nearby park. This workshop uses only natural light and reflectors (so NOT a lot of expensive equipment) and live dog models. We discuss different backgrounds, light, composition and how to set up your shots. It’s a great way to figure out if you want to be a professional pet photographer!
Interested? The one day workshop is $295 and includes lunch. We even have a nearby hotel with great rates for those of you who might come in from out of town. Call the studio at 972-250-2415 with your questions or to sign up. We only take 10 attendees so everyone gets plenty of time to work hands on with Teresa and her assistant.
JULY 14-16, 2017 5th Annual STUDIO SHOOTERS UNLEASHED
Ready for more lighting, more posing, adding people to your portraits, or just want to experiment with lots of different lighting equipment before you make some major purchases? Then the 2017 STUDIO SHOOTERS UNLEASHED is the one for you.
As more and more pet photographers are jumping in to the business, your lighting can really set you apart. And if you live in a part of the country with long winters, how do you survive when it’s just too miserable to shoot outdoors? So you’ve decided to learn studio lighting… But which lighting system is the best for what you want to shoot? Join us as we explore them all! Spend 3 days in a full-time professional studio (kind of a rarity these days) and see how we do it. From studio strobes to continuous lights to speedlights to ring lights to every kind of light modifiers we can think of. Come play with all the toys before you decide which is right for you! Live dog (and a few people) models and other photographers to shoot with — what could be more fun? We only take a small group, so make plans early. This class is $995 and includes snacks and lunches. We have a great group rate at the nearby Marriott. Call us to sign up and ask questions.
