One-on-One Prop Styling Intensive for Product Makers
“Never have I felt as supported and encouraged as I was during this workshop. I came away feeling validated, revitalized and purposeful with a list of action steps to put me on a path towards working commercially."—Janelle Gonyea Graves, re:find Joy, Chicago
Spend two full days* learning, styling, and shooting in a class designed specifically for you. This immersive program is geared towards small business makers of invitations, jewelry, home goods, beauty products, craft and food products (to name a few), who are seeking to style and shoot their own photos for their marketing and social media. From the minute you book your workshop we begin our work together starting with a questionnaire and phone or Skype call. After reviewing your detailed questionnaire, I design a custom program that suits your needs and goals with an eye towards creating images with impact that will directly improve your sales. We will take photos of your products and you'll receive instruction that empowers you to continue shooting at home. All sessions include: a one-on-one photo shoot, a journal, handouts and worksheets including my styling kit guide, materials*, studio set-up instruction, social media review and lunch.
Note: *Depending on the number and complexity of items, you may need to book additional days. It is recommended to bring a DSLR camera, but not required. Not included: Post production editing of photos. Specialty props and backdrops that are not part of my regular stock. Contact for more details.
More details about the program:
Square One: For those launching a web and social media presence. Learn the basics to get started with styling and get comfortable with the photo shoot environment. Emphasis is on creative skill building, styling technique, creating or finding props and backdrops, planning, and logistics. We'll start the day gathering inspiration and learning about the stylistic elements that create impactful images. You'll then decide on a direction and theme for your photos, choose items from my vast and carefully curated prop and supply collection, and let the ideas start flowing as we style and shoot. By the time you leave, you'll be ready to take on the world, armed with the tools to plan and execute your next shoot. Note: a basic working knowledge of your camera is recommended.
Level Two & Website Reboot: For those looking to revamp their existing social media and web presence with high-quality imagery. We’ll focus on what is needed to update your look. We'll map out a strategy for change, seeing what types of images are needed to take you in the new desired direction and we'll shoot new images. Contact for more details.
