DESCRIPTION: This is an all-day dynamic workshop that will show you the necessary skills and techniques for beautiful outdoor portraits. Advance your skills to the level of a professional portrait photographer. The day begins with 3 hours of classroom education. Here you will learn to adapt your photography knowledge for deeper understanding of exposure, light styling, wireless flash and posing for dynamic outdoor portrait photography. After a 1-hour lunch break we will walk over to the Buffalo Bayou Park (a 5 minute walk) for a 2-hour hands-on photo shoot. This will be your opportunity to put your new found knowledge to work. Your instructor and instructing assistant will be by your side to ensure you feel comfortable with your equipment, settings, lighting and posing.  At the end of the day, the instructor will retrieve the pictures you have taken so that your images may be donated to the models.

Plan B Workshop Date: If our original Workshop date is cancelled due to bad weather, you will receive notification at least 24 hours prior. In this case the Portrait Workshop will be rescheduled for our ‘Plan B Workshop Date’ which is the following Saturday. Therefore, when you register for this workshop you must ensure that you are available for the Original Workshop date as well as the ‘Plan B Date’ in case we get rained out. In the event that both dates are rained out then we will contact all participants to offer a refund or the option of a ‘Plan C Date’.
