Well, I can't hardly believe the workshop has now come and gone. It feels like I was waiting for it forever and it was such a whirlwind of two days that now I'm totally on a low now that it is over! It was SUCH an amazing time however and I learned a ton, met SO many great people and am 100% confident that this was a great first step in the continued growth of my business!
The workshop took place in the gorgeous Clayton on the Park in Scottsdale, AZ. Everything about it was perfect. Amy and Jordan gave us a cute little grab bag filled with the most important thing of all...CANDY! Just kidding, their Top Secret playbook was in there and wow if that thing isn't valuable!! I think I might need to keep it in my in home safe because of the crazy amount of great info that is included!
Fifteen amazing other photographers joined me at the inaugural #ajworkshop and we all had a great time chatting and getting to know more about each other and learning from each other throughout the whole experience. It was fun for me to see all the awesome camera gear everywhere!
We dove right into the good stuff and I was lucky enough to be in the first row. I took some shots occasionally throughout A&J's teaching and I HAD to make this collage. I call it, "how to use your hands while speaking by Jordan Demos". HA!
Probably my favorite part of the workshop had to do with posing. I learned a lot of great tips and tricks especially for posing couples! Look at how cute they are!
Then we did a lot of work with Expodisc. I've had one for a long time and hardly every used it. I think that is about to change for sure!
The styled shoot was in the afternoon and Amy showed us how she goes about getting all the amazingly beautiful shots that she always captures. It was great to see her in action! Then all the rest of us got in on the action as well!
Amy's feet were cracking me up, and check out Jordan rocking his shooting stance! Love it!
I never seem to make my way into the group getting the shot, so I had a great time shooting everyone else shooting. Does that sentence even make sense? Hope so!
All of the above photos were from day one of the workshop and I don't have any captures from day 2 as it was mostly all about business and momentum. I have LOTS more to share about the specific info that I found most helpful from this workshop as well as some fun other photos as well, but that will all have to wait until I can get my thoughts together! This workshop was such an amazing blessing to me and I am so glad I was able to attend. Can't wait to share more!
