Newborn Inspired™ 1:1 Photography Mentoring Workshop With Julie Rollins
I have been in love with newborn photography for as long as I can remember. Even when I decided to start my own photography business, I knew that down the road I wanted to specialize in newborn photography. Over the years I have spent quite a bit of time studying and critiquing my own work and I am constantly setting new goals and challenges for myself. I strive to provide my clients with the highest level of quality service and I myself have invested in a variety of workshops and online classes because I firmly believe in the value they have added to my photography skills and my business as a whole. I currently offer One Day Personalized Mentoring Sessions at my studio located in San Pedro, CA. These sessions are geared towards photographers who are wanting to enhance and elevate their current skill set while receiving personalized guidance in newborn photography. We will spend one full day together, during which time we will focus on all aspects of newborn portraiture. We will cover preparation and setting up for the session, the use of natural light, proper camera techniques, hands-on-posing, set up for a variety of shots (including posing on the bean bag and prop shots) methods of soothing the newborn, business tips and practices that have worked for me along with going over my post processing techniques and digital workflow.
One Day Mentoring Session – Two Newborns: $1250.00
All mentoring sessions are 1:1, if you would like to sign up with a friend I do offer 1:2 mentoring sessions. The price listed above would then reflect the per person fee. The sessions are limited to a maximum of 2 photographers.
The session schedule is as follows:
At 9am we will meet at the studio for session prep and setup for the shoot. We will then have approximately 5 hours of posing geared towards your specific needs and set up requests. Once we finish shooting we will then have our session wrap up. The session wrap up will last approximately two hours, during which time we will debrief and discuss any questions you may have from the day and we will go through post processing and digital workflow.
Along with everything mentioned above, you will also be provided with lunch, snacks and beverages throughout the day.
The mentoring session is intended for professional photographers who own a DSLR and know how to work it. You need to be comfortable shooting in manual mode (it is assumed you will have a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed and iso) and have a working knowledge of Photoshop. When you come for your session I ask that you bring with you your DSLR camera and manual, 50mm and/or 35mm lens, memory cards, extra battery for your camera, your laptop (if you have one) and a pen and paper to take notes. I shoot with the following lenses: 50mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4 and my 60mm 2.8 macro. Feel free to bring with you any additional lenses that you might like to use.
A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold your date. The remaining balance of your tuition is due one month before the scheduled session date. You also have the option of paying your tuition in full at the time of booking your session. If for some reason you need to cancel after full payment has been made you have the choice of being refunded 50% of the final payment or you can apply your payment to a future workshop or mentoring session date.
