Limited Capacity seats available

With so many photographers and so many seniors, how can you make sure that each one of your clients stands out? In this program, attendees will learn how to get to know their senior clients and take that information and apply it to each senior shoot in order to create a personalized shoot that tells the story of each senior client through their photos. This program will be a combination of instruction and shooting so attendees should bring their camera, plenty of memory cards and their favorite lenses. I will begin the program with instruction on what you can do prior to the actual session to help you get to know your senior and be able to tell their story with your camera. After the instruction period, we will split up into small groups and photograph styled seniors. I will be there to help you with posing, lighting and more to make sure you get the most out of your experience during this program. You will get the experience of a real styled senior shoot while having me on hand to provide tricks and tips to create amazing images.

You will learn:
- What to do before the session to get to know each and every senior
- How to incorporate what you learn about the senior into their session
- Posing and ighting to make sure you get the best possible photos of each senior
- How to interact with seniors to make sure their personalities shine through

This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Sculpture Park.

Sculpture Park will give you plenty of beautiful water views, a very small area (about the width of a boat launch) of water access in the vicinity, greenery, and interesting urban spaces/sculptures. There is an interesting pier right next to the park with a great set of buildings and an open parking lot providing nice shade/open shade areas. Moving away from the Sculpture Park and back towards Pike Place Market (and the Westin), there are streets with some colorful or patina walls and interesting urban fixtures.

Travel time to the Sculpture Park can take 25-30 minutes. Attendees will walk briskly to the location, learn and shoot onsite, and then return to the Westin at a leisurely pace at the conclusion of the program so smaller groups can shoot in the variety of scenic spots on the way back. Remember that the walk back to the Westin is uphill, so travel times when returning to the hotel will likely be a bit longer.
