Join Jay Cassario for three days of intensive learning in Savannah GA. This workshop is open to all photographers. You do not need to own a Leica to attend.
Wedding photographers, are hired to tell a story. Learning how to tell those stories through artistic and creative imagery can be extremely challenging, which is why those that do it well are often extremely successful. This completely new workshop is designed to provide you with an inside look into Jay Cassario’s approach to storytelling. The art of storytelling in wedding photography starts way before ever picking up a camera or clicking the shutter. Jay’s focus on storytelling starts from the moment he meets his clients for the first time and continues well past the last call at the wedding reception.
Some workshops focus on how to shoot couple’s portraits, how to run a successful business or marketing campaign, or even just lighting techniques. We will cover it all from portfolio review, to having you attend and shoot a mock elopement, to post processing, building client relationships, and album design/sales.
- Booking your ideal client
- Successful consultations
- Building client relationships
- Storytelling shooting techniques
- Artistic portraiture
- Album design/sales
This weekend workshop will be packed full of opportunities to both observe Jay’s approach to shooting and the chance to shoot your own images and receive feedback on the results.
The workshop will kick off on Friday afternoon with an Engagement shoot at 3:00p.m. followed by a private dinner for all participants.
Saturday, Jay will walk participants through a mock wedding. We will start with Bride and Groom prep and First Look moments. After a brief lunch, you will have an opportunity to photography a mock ceremony followed by formals and the reception. During the entire workshop, you can see first-hand Jay’s posing techniques as well as how to develop rapport with your clients.
Sunday will be devoted to developing your business plan, studio management, and album sales. After a brief lunch, Jay will demonstrate his image processing techniques.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This workshop will be an experience meant to help those that have just started getting their feet wet in the wedding industry, as well as those who have been going at it for years and looking to make positive changes that could take their business in new directions.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
If the “Workshop” is just what you’ve been waiting for, come prepared knowing how to explain your business model, your goals, and what you are looking to get out of this experience. We will be keeping things on a more intimate level where there will be one on one time with each attendee. Be prepared to dig a little deeper than you ever have before in order to help you grow in ways you never thought possible.
Owning a Leica is never a requirement to attend one of our workshops. We will have both S and SL cameras available.
Enrollment is limited to only 12 participants. Save $200 off registration, until August, 2020.
Coffee and snacks will be provided throughout the program. Lunch both Saturday and Sunday.
Lodging is not included in the workshop fee. Recommended hotels will be provided with your registration.
