beach photography workshopI am always looking for a way to give back to the photography community and help build up other photographers because I really want to see this industry raised up, and that won’t happen without us supporting and encouraging each other! So every summer I teach two free events to promote the spirit of learning and community. This year, it started with a beach photography workshop and next month there will be a headshot swap!

Beach Photography Workshop

The beach photography workshop started with about an hour of instruction for the 20 or so photographers who attended the event. I started by talking about working with couples (making them comfortable, getting them to trust you), and then moved into the show and tell portion of core poses I use and how that can be transitioned into getting some amazing images by just making small tweaks.

We had a wonderful couple who had been married for a few years don some wedding clothes and we also had a bride who was on the cusp of getting married (who has since celebrated the wedding to her handsome hubby!), so I can now finally share with you all of these gorgeous images!
