So, after months of planning, this workshop is finally happening, and you are one of the few people that'll be there.
First off - Thank you. This means a lot to me. Teaching is something I love a lot, and you're helping create a space for me to do so.
So, here's the deal:
The workshop is happening at Shepstone Gardens, which is an absolutely exquisite venue. I shot this image there, and pretty much every single wedding I've shot there has been a goldmine for my portfolio. In fact, the main image on the ettventer.com homepage was shot there as well. On Day 1, the first session will likely start at 8:30am. We'll spend some time getting to know each other, and then we'll get cracking. We'll break for lunch at about 12 or 1pm, depending on when we're hungriest. Haha.
Once we're back, we'll get cracking with session 2, which is the shoot. We'll start with some theory and Q&A before we start with a "post wedding ceremony" couple photoshoot that afternoon at about 3pm. Once we're done with that shoot, after sunset, we'll come back in and do a quick wrap-up session. Since we're trying to shoot during golden hour, I expect Day 1 to be done by about 6pm. It sounds like a long day, but it really isn't. Again, these times are all rough estimates - they might change. I really want you to have an opportunity to get some portfolio out of this shoot. Our couple is absolutely amazing, and then venue is bonkers, so I imagine that this will be a great chance for portfolio work.
On Day 2, we'll start at 8:30 again. The second day is incredibly important, because the actual photography is only a small part of being a photographer. I'll be teaching you and helping you with everything else on this day. I'm expecting Day 2 to end late in the afternoon as well.
If there's something specific you'd like me to cover, please let me know. I'd be happy to tweak my workshop if it means you'll get more out of it.
ONE LAST THING!
I'm going to do a bit of a referral situation at this workshop. If you can get a friend to sign up for this workshop, I'll give you 500 bucks BACK! I know you've got a friend who's on the fence about this workshop, so get them to sign up, and I'll give you one of those scaley handshakes where I sneak money into your hand. Or, you know, I'll just EFT it back. The handshake sounds more fun though.
One last admin task - Please go ahead and fill out this form for me.
That's it! I'll send you the address to the venue closer to the time.
Keep well, and please let me know if you need anything else.
Again - thank you.
