    • 207 North Broadway, Santa Ana, CA 92701

    Join us for a hands-on workshop where you will learn the art and techniques of capturing stunning headshots. Whether you're an aspiring photographer or a seasoned professional looking to enhance your skills, this workshop will equip you with the knowledge and practical experience necessary to create compelling headshots that truly stand out.

    During this workshop, we will cover a wide range of topics and techniques to ensure you gain a comprehensive understanding of headshot photography. Here's what you can expect to learn:

    1- A complete list of gear needed for various headshot and corporate work.

    2- 1-2 Lighting set-ups that will work for anyone, anywhere.

    3- How to pose, style, and elicit the right expression from your subject, and make them feel at ease.

    4- Introduction to using a light meter, tripod, and tethering as additional options in a session, and how these tools can enhance your workflow.

    5- The difference between studio and environmental headshots.

    Throughout the workshop, you will have access to a wide range of gear, including triggers compatible with Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Fuji cameras. This allows you to experiment with different equipment and understand their unique capabilities.

    To ensure hands-on learning, we will dedicate at least two hours for practical sessions. You will have the opportunity to photograph each other or work with a provided "model" who will sit in as a client. This practical experience will reinforce the concepts discussed and allow you to replicate headshot setups confidently.

    You will leave with a wealth of knowledge, improved technical skills, and the confidence to create stunning headshot photographs that leave a lasting impression.
