BELIEF: A FEELING OF CERTAINTY THAT SOMETHING EXISTS, IS TRUE, OR IS GOOD.
I am super excited today to launch a brand new workshop rolling together my favourite elements of photography and coaching to help you bust your glass ceiling in the realms of portraiture… drumroll… ladies and gents, we present… Belief Portrait Photography Workshop Italy 2019 (this is the bit where we need Aretha Franklin and her back-up singers).
After the wonderful Heartland Environmental Workshop in October 2018 at the exquisite Masseria Potenti, workshop co-ordinator Athalee Brown and I have the greatest pleasure in presenting another unique workshop in this heavenly location in Puglia, Italy.
The ultimate gift for a photographer is the belief in themselves, their vision, and their skills. It was with these key three things in mind that I masterminded with Photographer Loc Boyle to bring together our love of portrait photography and creativity. I have added my skills as a life coach to help YOU gain a deeper belief in your photographic vision, more confidence in working with your portrait subject and embracing your creativity to dream bigger. Oh, and did we mention the linen sheets!!
I show you how to access something deeper within you that will allow you to go beyond those awkward moments when it feels like nothing is happening, to provoke your subject to draw out more than a pretty portrait. We show you how to use the language of natural light to strengthen the mood of your photo.
Yes, folks taking portraits is as much about you as it is about your portrait subject. To become skilled at (or even close) to taking the portraits you want means getting comfortable with you and letting go of the feelings of shyness, embarrassment, and taking up someone’s time. Connecting to yourself helps you to connect to others. So get ready to dance, laugh and get vulnerable!
It’s about having the courage to sit through the awkward moments till something happens instead of racing to get a picture done. It’s about opening YOUR HEART as much as trying to get your portrait subject to OPEN THEIRS.
I teach you the secrets I have learnt CREATING A VISION for lifestyle shoots for Harper’s Bazaar, bowling up to unsuspecting folks on a Greek Island to capture a portrait in a language I can’t speak or approaching people in unique circumstances whilst travelling.
Talented Photographer and teacher Loc Boyle will join us. Loc is a favourite with our participants for his comprehensive teaching skills and technical mastery and will put you at ease from day one.
Being able to capture something only you see, tapping into something deeper within you and within the person in front of you to create an image that causes us to stop, reflect and ponder ‘who is this person, what’s their story’?
All of this will be taught in a place close to heaven, the beautiful Masseria Potenti. A place that will nurture and inspire the soul and serve as the perfect backdrop to start mastering YOUR CONFIDENCE AND BELIEF, the use of light and space, working with people all made easier in a supportive environment where you can push and challenge yourself to take those photos you dream of taking.
If you would like to join us on this unique workshop, you can see the full details here.
