Workshops are 2 weeks of hands-on learning and practice with live teaching by the instructor. We recommend that you make sure you have the time available to invest when purchasing a workshop to make sure that you get the most out of it that you can.
Some workshops are only available as live runs, and others are made available as self-run workshops outside of their live runs where you can study at your own pace as a download & go.
Mentor Live | Elective Courses will host a ONE week “Mentor Live” run for each elective course upon release where you’ll receive exclusive hands-on guidance from the elective course mentor and exclusive access to their private Facebook group where you can interact with other students of the course to receive feedback, support, and CC. The mentor will be present during that week of the Mentor Live to answer questions & provide feedback on mini projects. Elective courses are offered as a "learn at your own pace" and can be reviewed at any time, anywhere. All materials will be yours to keep. All elective courses come with an easy-on-the-go audio learning option.
(Mentor Live seats are limited at 20 students per course and first come first serve. Mentor Live seats will be available for PRE-REGISTRATION during the 2-week pre-sale prior to course launch)
For one week only (September 15, 2021 - September 21, 2021) we are offering our popular Mastering Skin Tones and Mastering Greens together in a COMBO PACK for only $49!
In the Mastering Skin Tones elective course, Laura walks you through editing skin BY NUMBER in Lightroom Classic. This "math" applies to any color of skin and is as easy as adding up to 10 (or 30 for darker skin tones!).
In her mini, Mastering Greens, Laura walks you through how to achieve nice warm tones, or cool crisp hues - whatever your preference is. This course is for both Lightroom and/or Photoshop. There is even a BONUS FALL EDITING video just added this week!
Our BRAND NEW photography program is designed specifically FOR KIDS (ages 8+) who want to LEARN & understand the basics of photography, editing, storytelling and studio work.
WHEN KIDS LEARN THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY, THEY LEARN TO SEE THE WORLD IN A BRAND NEW WAY. A WAY THAT NECESSITATES PATIENCE AND HONES THEIR SKILLS OF OBSERVATION AND PERCEPTION. RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THE ABILITY TO DELAY GRATIFICATION IS ONE OF THE BEST PREDICTORS OF FUTURE ACADEMIC AND LIFE SUCCESS. WHEN A LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER PATIENTLY WAITS FOR THE LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE THE LANDSCAPE FROM JUST THE RIGHT ANGLE, THEY ARE DELAYING THEIR GRATIFICATION. AND WHEN A WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER SITS QUIETLY WHILE OBSERVING A MOTHER BEAR INTERACT WITH HER CUBS, WAITING FOR JUST THE PERFECT MOMENT TO CLICK THE SHUTTER, THEY ARE DELAYING THEIR GRATIFICATION. PHOTOGRAPHY DEFINITELY REQUIRES PATIENCE! PERHAPS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THOUGH, PHOTOGRAPHY CULTIVATES AN APPRECIATION FOR THE PROCESS. LEARNING IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST THE END RESULT!
LEARNING THE TECHNICAL SIDE OF PHOTOGRAPHY, SUCH AS MANIPULATING CAMERA SETTINGS, COMPOSING A FRAME, OBSERVING AND INCLUDING THE LIGHT ARTISTICALLY, WORKING OUT THE MOST IDEAL ANGLE, AND GETTING THE FOCUS JUST RIGHT, SHARPENS PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS THAT CAN EASILY BE APPLIED TO OTHER ACADEMIC SUBJECTS AND AREAS OF LIFE.
