I HAD SUCH A BLAST LAST WEEK HOSTING 2 ONE-DAY FASHION / LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS AT MY LOCATION CHATEAU / STUDIO IN CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA! LEICA AND SONY SPONSOR ME AND MY WORKSHOPS AND PROVIDED THEIR BEST CAMERA BODIES, LENSES AND ACCESSORIES FOR THE ATTENDEES TO TEST OUT AND SHOOT WITH. I WENT OVER TOPICS INCLUDING FINDING AND PITCHING CLIENTS, BIDDING ON JOBS, PRODUCING PHOTO SHOOTS, BRANDING AND MARKETING, BUILDING A GREAT WEBSITE AND ANSWERED SOME GREAT QUESTIONS THAT THE ATTENDEES HAD. WE WENT OVER MY APPROACH TO HAIR, MAKEUP AND STYLING THE MODEL AND I EXPLAINED HOW MY MIND WORKS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF A PHOTO SHOOT FROM PRE TO POST PRODUCTION. THE ATTENDEES HAD LIVE SHOOTS WITH STUNNING MODELS FROM FORD, IMG AND WILHELMINA AND I WAS BY THEIR SIDE TO GUIDE AND ENCOURAGE THEM. I RECEIVED THIS WONDERFUL TESTIMONIAL THIS MORNING AND IT CONFIRMED WHY I LOVE HOSTING WORKSHOPS AND ENCOURAGING ASPIRING PHOTOGRAPHERS:
“IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY AND WANT TO BECOME THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER YOU CAN BE, THEN THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU.
YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT THE HELPFUL INFORMATION AND EXPERIENCE JIM AND HIS ASSOCIATE DANIELLE HAVE PACKED INTO ONE DAY.
JIM REVEALS WHAT HE DOES TO REMAIN RELEVANT IN A CHANGING WORLD, WHY HE DOES IT AND HOW IT HAS MADE HIM SUCCESSFUL. HIS PASSIONATE, IF MODEST, NARRATIVE OF HIS “BY THE BOOTSTRAPS” ASSENT IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORLD BELIE HIS INGENUITY IN PUTTING HIMSELF AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME WHERE DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY WERE OPEN TO HIM. YOU LEARN THAT HE LEAVES NOTHING TO CHANCE.
JIM ADDRESSES THE NUTS AND BOLTS… WORKING ON SPEC, BIDDING ON JOBS, DEVELOPING THEMES AND STORIES, FINDING YOUR STYLE, DEALING WITH REPS, PREPARING FOR AND UNDERTAKING A COMMERCIAL SHOOT, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW TO NURTURE AND MAINTAIN VALUABLE RELATIONSHIPS TO GET THE ATTENTION OF THOSE WHO CAN MAKE DECISIONS THAT WILL IMPACT YOUR CAREER.
ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT IS THE REAL LIFE PHOTO SHOOT AT JIM’S EXQUISITE STUDIO. WATCH JIM WORK HIS MAGIC, THEN TRY IT YOURSELF. IT IS DAUNTING AND INVIGORATING AT THE SAME TIME. WITH JIM’S GUIDANCE YOU GAIN INSIGHT. INTENSIVE PRACTICE IN A REAL LIFE SETTING BUILDS CONFIDENCE.
AS THE WORKSHOP WAS WRAPPING UP AND EACH PARTICIPANT WAS COLLECTING AN ASSORTMENT OF PARTING GIFTS, I CONFIDED TO JIM, ‘I AM A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER NOW THAN I WAS WHEN I WALKED INTO YOUR STUDIO THIS MORNING.’ WHAT MORE COULD ONE ASK FOR?” -J. ANTHONY MALONE, ATTENDEE OF JIM’S SEPTEMBER, 2012 WORKSHOP
