Create Better Images Workshops

Beginner Workshop 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Kim Jarman Photography Studio - Mesa, AZ
We will be covering the fundamentals of photography: ISO, shutter speed and aperture and how they interrelate. Our goal is to get you shooting manually (and therefore more creatively), teaching you how to turn off your flash and getting images that pop and wow. To see the flyer from the last workshop for more details on the actual topics covered, please click here.

$169 ($149 "early bird rate" for those who register before Oct 12th)
Participants will need a camera, any lenses they have and their manual. SLR camera strongly recommended since we cover SLR camera functions.

Intermediate Workshop with Live Model Shoot 2:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Kim Jarman Photography Studio - Mesa, AZ
This workshop is for those who understand the fundamentals, as it will build upon all of those skills. We will review them, especially in live practice, but not spend as much time on the basics as the beginner class. Most importantly, we will have 2 models (a toddler and a high school senior) and will divide into 2 groups for the live shoot portion. This workshop will be very hands-on and after the shoot, you will actually process your images via Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and share a few of them. We will review shooting techniques, posing suggestions, and go very in-depth with the actual shooting process. The detailed flyer will be posted with the registration form within the week.

$269.00 ($249 early bird rate for those who register before Oct 12th)
Participants must have (or rent) a digital SLR camera for this, as well as bring any lenses they have. We also ask that you bring a laptop since you will be processing your images. If you do not have a laptop, please let us know.

Both workshops are limited to 20 participants. Our goal is to make the workshops as interactive and friendly as possible, where attendees feel comfortable to ask questions and share in this small-group format.

All spots are first-come, first-serve after the forms are posted, so please watch our blogs in the next several days for the info. If you have previously emailed us expressing interest, you will receive info via email immediately preceding the registration blog post. Thank you for your interest! We hope to see you in November.

We are looking for a toddler model for this shoot. Toddler must be between ages 1-1/2 and 4 and parent will be on-hand during shoot. Parents will receive free images on a disc including images from Jennifer, Kim and each of the participants. We advise that the toddler model not be one of the workshop participants' child. The reason is that the parent may not be able to disengage and focus as well on the shooting part if their child needs them.
