Warning: watching this video will make you want to move to Virginia, buy a farm and be a full time pet photographer.
Unleashed! June 26-29, 2011 in Chicago
We’ve just confirmed the next venue and details so those who have been waiting patiently for information will be contacted shortly via email. As of this minute we have 18 spots and over 40 people requesting information, so please respond as soon as possible.
We will post a list of convenient hotels, but we’ll be shooting at Poppy Blue Photography (Barbara Breitsameter’s studio) in Park Ridge, Illinois and utilizing a nearby nature preserve for outdoor shooting. Indoor sessions using natural light are also planned. We use a variety of dog models and shoot in small groups so each attendee will get to shoot with each of the three instructors. This kind of hands-on shooting in small groups is almost impossible to find in a workshop setting –so if it’s time to add pet photography to your life, this is the time and place to do it!
If you’re checking flights and airfare, you will want to fly in to O’Hare in time for the first session on Sunday evening, June 26th. We’ll meet at 6pm with wine and cheese and get to know each other –and start our first exersize– designed to help you identify your personal style!
Day 1 and Day 2 will start EARLY and be very full! Business and marketing classes in the morning, and shooting all afternoon and in to the evening. Lunch and snacks are provided.
Day 3 is all about Sales. How to talk with clients, shoot for what they want — and get the big sales!
Tuition is $1600 per person, which includes lunch, snacks AND A COPY OF DOG SHOTS (a $90 value). Explore this blog for details, a sample agenda and then email us via the contact page for the full registration package.
Last Call for Imaging USA
If you hurry, you can still get a flight for the biggest photography convention in the world and a seat for our one day version of Unleashed, called SIT STAY LEARN. We’ll be teaching from 9-5 on Saturday, January 15th at Imaging USA in San Antonio, TX.
If you haven’t attend IUSA in the past, it is an AMAZING convention. Literally 13,000 photographers in one place with 3 days of drop-in mini workshops and speakers. Almost every vendor you can think of will be there – so you can stroll through the trade show and see samples of all the new products, meet famous photographers, even touch and play with the latest equipment. I started attending over 6 years ago when I was a part time photographer and it has been a huge help to me over the years.
So even if you don’t attend our pre-convention class — don’t miss Imaging USA!
Since we just can’t be everywhere at once…
The official blurb:
“Got a pet session coming up and you’re drawing a blank? Here is a triple shot of inspiration and helpful hints from Bev Hollis, Barbara Breitsameter and Teresa Berg of Unleashed | Fine Art Pet Photograpy Workshops. Thirty of their favorite shots (with the lighting setups and exposure information on the back) in a cool 5×8 flip book. They’ve also included some insights and a little bit of the story behind each shot. It’s the next best thing to having them in your camera bag.”
Available for pre-order via Paypal (Click on the BUY DOG SHOTS page above). Shipping mid-January.
To order by phone with a credit card, call 972-250-2415 or pick up your copy from us at Imaging USA in January.
A howling success!
Just a quick note of thanks and praise to our wonderful support staff, the terrifically talented photographers who attended and the adorable dog and people models. We’ve had some people inquire about future dates for Unleashed which have not yet been confirmed –so stay tuned to this blog for updates!
We are scheduled to teach a one day version of Unleashed, called Sit! Stay! Learn! at Imaging USA in San Antonio, Texas on January 15th. Please visit HERE to find out more and sign up.

We’re going to be teaching a full day of Pre-conference classes at Imaging USA in January! We’re on the schedule for January 15th, from 9-5 –so arrive a day early and join us at SIT! STAY! LEARN!
It’s mentioned officially in the July issue of Professional Photographer — and registration opens very soon. Since it’s a one day class it’s an encapsulated version of Unleashed – no shooting and no “Don’s Day of Sales’ but if you’re planning to attend Imaging USA in San Antonio and you want to get introduced to what we have to offer at a much reduced price, this might just be the perfect thing. We’ll each be covering our lighting, our marketing, and of course, going into how we do what we do. But sign up early — last year there were 10,000 photographers at Imaging!
