Training with Maggie
When I started my photography journey, I made pretty much all the mistakes in the book. Overshooting sessions, editing for weeks on end, buying the wrong gear, destroying skin texture with crap skin smoothing actions, buying tons of useless props I never used, shooting at the wrong f-stop, underexposing images. You name it, I’ve done it. Then I went through a phase, when I started obsession about nailing each and every pose. Yup, definitely, that’s what we need to do, every pose in the gallery guarantees a sale. No. Turns out, that wasn’t it. I made all the mistakes and I’m here to make sure you save a year or two of your own professional life not making those as well.
I’ll show you my tricks to achieving a varied galleries, no matter how great or not-so-great your little models are.
All participants will have the opportunity to shoot as well as receive personalised feedback and ask as many questions as they like.
What is it?
One day (9:30am to 4pm), 1-2-1 personalised training day at my studio in Aston Springs Farm (S26 5PQ), focusing on your weaker areas. I am here to make you more confident about your work, lighting, composition, your pricing and to give you the tools to create amazing galleries that will blow away your clients.
I will help you with your lighting, posing and push you to the next level in your work.
The day will give you an overall push in the right direction and motivate you to improve and get better at your craft.
Who is it for?
For all of you lovely lot, who feel as though they are not progressing, struggle to attract clients and then monetise your hard work. For all of you who already work as newborn and baby photographers, but find yourselves stuck, doing the same poses, and the same workflow each time, and wanting to put some oomph into your galleries, and get paid more for your time.
What we can cover, depending on your choices:
- shooting for sale
- maximising your galleries for profit
- maximising your poses and angles
- black and white conversion
- IPS and sales
We will arrange a 30 minute Skype call prior to our session, during which we will outline all the concerns you may have and decide what we will focus on, and what models will benefit your training the most.
What do I bring?
Along with your camera and laptop, I also recommend each participant to have a 50mm, 35mm or 24-70mm lens. Bring your questions and a notebook and a pen in case you’d like to write anything down.
We all like a bit of a goodie bag, so Dinky Feet Photography is here to spoil you, too. I offer a little something something in partnership with Created by Carli, Pho*tees, Cute Newborn Photo Prop and LSP Actions by Lemon Sky (50% off any actions!)
