CALLING ALL NEW + ASPIRING PHOTOGRAPHERS!!! If you’ve been looking for photography classes in Olympia WA, I have just the thing for you… You’re invited to The Photography Cafe & Workshop! I’m hosting my first ever photography education workshop in Olympia, Washington and omg I am SO excited.
WHO: Beginning photographers & aspiring photographers
WHAT: The Photography Cafe & Workshop
WHERE: Ebony and Ivory Coffee | 676 Woodland Sq Lp, Lacey, WA
WHEN: Every Saturday in February 2023 from 9:30am to 11:30am
WHY: Learn the basics of photography, network with other creatives, & get exclusive group mentorship from experienced photographers!
HOW MUCH: $75 per week – join us for as many weeks as you can!
Learn the basics of photography in four unique, in-person workshops at one of the besttttttt Lacey coffee shops. Network with other creatives while enjoying local coffee & photography mentorship (from me, yours truly!!) in an intimate group setting.
Maybe it released this feeling inside of you that you couldn’t quite shake. Maybe you fell in love with how your clients opened up in front of the lens. Maybe you love the journey of storytelling.
Like culling and client management and invoices and contracts and making a website and SD cards and batteries and lenses and blogging and marketing and emails and networking and editing and meetings and LLCs and creating timelines and…… well, you get the point. Obviously. That’s why you’re here!
And that’s why you should be here, saving your spot for The Photography Cafe & Workshop.
We’ll dive deep into the dreaded manual settings & why it’s so important to master them! Whether you’re shooting with a beginner’s camera or more advanced equipment, you’ll walk away from this feeling so much more comfortable & confident in your photography skills.
One of the most important parts of being a photographer is helping your clients feel comfortable in front of your lens. This week we’ll cover the difference between posing and prompting! We’ll talk about the value of each and why you should have a mixture of both in your sessions.
You’ll get the chance to practice shooting with a model too!
Adobe Lightroom is the industry standard for editing your photos so it’s something you definitely have to master! We’ll talk about how to set up a sustainable workflow, tips on editing, & how to expedite the often monotonous task of editing large galleries.
Join us at Ebony & Ivory Coffee for one week, or all four!
Hi, I’m Shailee Berry! I grew up in the world of photography and the only thing I like more than documenting first looks & vows is teaching other photographers to do the same! I’ve found that the quickest way to grow and flourish in your business is to invest in yourself early on in your photography business journey. I want to be that person for you—to tutor you and walk alongside you in this exciting time so you can learn from my mistakes.
I’ve been doing photography education and mentorship for a few years but recently noticed a demand for photography classes in Olympia WA where I live… and so The Photography Cafe & Workshop was born!
“At the beginning of my mentorship, I wasn’t very confident in my skills with the camera itself, and definitely with editing, but by the end, I knew exactly what I was doing! I excelled a great amount with editing and am more confident with managing my website as well! I learned many new skills with Shailee and had so much fun doing it!”– Maddie, a former photography education client
