Whether you travel a few streets over, or halfway around the world, using careful observation of light and composition to inform your approach to imagery will allow you to create photographs that capture the sensation of actually standing in a location. In this session, Megan will discuss how to find and employ several light, composition and shooting techniques that will take your travel imagery to the next level. Participants should be comfortable shooting in manual mode and consider themselves an intermediate or above skill level. Bringing a camera and lens/es that will allow for creative composition of outside scenes is encouraged.

This class will cover:

-Identifying contrasts in light and composition that will elevate imagery
-Finding framing elements to control viewer experience
-How to experiment with purposeful lack of focus

Creating Meaningful Portraits Indoors: Using the Light You've Got to Get the Shot (Anita Martin)
Limited Capacity full

Sometimes weather doesn't cooperate and you are forced to shoot a couple indoors on a dark day. Sometimes a wedding day runs behind and the sun sets before you can do portraits. Sometimes you have to work in low light and ambient light or need to supplement with artificial light. I will demonstrate an indoor photo session in one location with one natural light source where we put on our creative hats and work with the light we've got! The focus of this session is on being close and creating natural connection in images without having access to beautiful sweeping landscapes.

Attendees will be shooting alongside me during this demonstration with a couple. Please bring your camera and favorite lenses for shooting indoors. Students should have some experience shooting in manual mode. Photographers of all levels can learn from the hands-on posing elements of this class. I will provide a video light for attendees to use during the demonstration, as needed.

The shooting demonstration will be with a couple, however the program is relevant to photographers shooting families in a client's home where the lighting situation is not ideal. I will talk about using light to flatter the woman and using light to highlight emotion. Light is powerful when used to show off connection and a couples session in low light is the best way to keep it simple and focus on what is most important - their relationship. You can be romantic and moody and create powerful sensual images or you can be silly and fun and still create images that show joy and really capture their personalities!

This class will dive right into finding light and will include hands-on posing and a brief overview of how to use your gear to best shoot in low light. I will talk in depth about connecting with my clients during the demonstration. When you are in close quarters with your subjects it is so important to earn their trust so the images will reflect their true personalities. I will also demonstrate posing and lighting techniques with a video light and answer questions about post-processing and editing ideas and tips for images taken in a low light setting.

Learning Objectives:
1. How to search for and find light in any environment, creating light if necessary, and using that light to highlight and flatter your subjects.
2. Posing in a small space, using creative posing techniques and interaction to add a sense of movement and authenticity.
3. Connecting with people in a small environment and using that connection to capture meaningful images.
4. Post processing ideas and concepts from a session in low light.

Light Play: Finding the Light to Make Your Image (Mae Burke)
Limited Capacity filling up

Light is everything in photography, and I’m going to show you how I use it to take my images to the next level. I’ll take you on a “visual light tour” and we’ll go out searching for all types of light scenarios. I’ll show you how different an image can be just by changing how you are using the light that is given to you. This will be a hands-on program with lots of experimenting and photographing models in all different kinds of light. I'll cover my settings in all situations. Bring your camera and lenses, and a notebook to jot down some notes. I will open up the last 10 minutes of class for a question and answer session.

Learn:
How to find the light
How light changes an image
Camera settings to change the appearance of an image
About low light and how it can enhance the details
How I work with the light that is given to me

Location:
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.

The Art of Freelensing (Anna Larson)
Limited Capacity full

Freelensing is a technique that gives a beautiful, painterly feel to a photograph and allows freedom when creating. It can be tricky at first and because there's no black and white when utilizing this technique, I want you to build confidence as you learn. We'll be covering the basics of how freelensing is accomplished and how it can be used to add depth and interest to an image. Through discussion and hands on participation with child models, you'll be taught how to effectively freelens for portraiture, including instruction on subject movement, shooting through objects, reverse freelensing (creating a macro effect), and how it can be used in different natural light conditions. All of these techniques will be demonstrated and you'll have the opportunity to practice as you're taught. This will be a very fun and interactive class -- we'll be making art together!

Attendees should know how to shoot in manual mode and it's highly recommended that you have a smaller, lighter lens. Suggested lenses include a 50mm 1.4, 50mm 1.8, or 85mm 1.8. Freelensing can be successful with heavier lenses but you'll be working with both hands and manual focusing, so the lighter the better!

Learning Objectives:
1) To learn the basic technical aspects of freelensing and reverse freelensing
2) To learn how the freelensing technique is best utilized in order to enhance a photograph and when it may be better to avoid freelensing.
3) To learn about the use of freelensing in different natural light conditions such as bright sun or very low light.
4) To expand the ability to create freely and push creativity.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Westlake Park and/or the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall.

Westlake Park and the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall will provide an urban background without venturing too far. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes to travel to these locations.

The Power of Play: Capturing Authenticity in Children and Family Portraiture (Virginia Greuloch)
Limited Capacity full

Capturing a child's true personality is not an experience reserved just for lifestyle and documentary photographers. Every parent wants you to capture their child’s authentic self and his or her real connection to their family. They want to see the real smiles, not the “for-the-camera” smiles. They want the session to be relaxed and as fun-filled as possible for the entire family. Join Virginia Greuloch as she demonstrates how to use child-led methods in a photography session with a child. Capture the child's authentic joy while incorporating movement to create modern children's portraiture. Creating opportunities for children and families to play together can give families memories that will last forever - and not just because it was the day that the photographer was there. They will remember that it was a day that they came together to laugh and to play and to love each other. Learn how to use the power of play in this shooting demo/group shoot program with kids in order to make a portrait photography session that will create images and memories that last a lifetime.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to establish trust with the children you are photographing.
2. Learn to incorporate a play-based, child-centered approach to photography.
3. Gain tips and tools to encourage playfulness with children and genuine connections with the whole family.
4. Find new ways to encourage playfulness in older children and adults.
5. Learn to photograph a series to later be printed and used for a gallery wall, image box, or album to sell to the client after the session is completed.
6. Use a shot list to create a complete session that highlights relationships with everyone in the entire family.
7. Use the play-based approach to photograph child models in an outdoor environment.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Seattle Center. 

The Seattle Center requires a brief ride (approximately 2-3 minutes) on a nearby monorail train that runs on a loop and departs approximately every 10 minutes from the Westlake Center Mall (across the street from the Westin). Travel time can range from approximately 15-24 minutes, depending on group size, how quickly the group moves, and how quickly the group can board the monorail. The Seattle Center is massive with tons of usable shooting space, from green park-like areas to funky walls and sculptures. The Space Needle is located within the Seattle Center. Attendees in programs taking place at the Seattle Center will be provided a round trip ticket for the monorail at the beginning of the program. The group will travel together to the Seattle Center. After the program concludes, attendees may travel back to the Westin at their leisure.

The Sibling Connection: Documenting Relationships In Early Childhood (Jennifer Kielich)
Limited Capacity filling up

Learn how to gently guide young siblings through an indoor lifestyle session. We will be using young models (ages 2-5) to document organic interactions in various lighting conditions, while focusing on the tools needed to navigate your own successful lifestyle sessions. The class will start with a short introduction, followed by a shooting demonstration, and then we'll break into small groups to take turns photographing our models. Because our models will be so young, we will not have more than 3-4 attendees shooting at once (we don't want to overwhelm them or distract them from interacting with one another). This will also provide each attendee a better shooting experience since there will be more room to get creative! Attendees should have experience shooting in manual mode. Please bring your camera and at least one wide angle lens.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to communicate with young children in order to facilitate natural interaction and heartwarming moments.
2. Learn how to use the environment itself to add more layers to the story.
3. Learn to let go of traditional expectations by embracing body language and posture (faceless images).
4. Learn to think outside the box with regard to composition in order to make the story more compelling.
5. Learn to add depth to your images by utilizing higher ISO settings.

Uncovered Beauty: Exposing the Details of the Natural World (Jennifer Carr)
Limited Capacity full

How often have you looked out your window and noticed the light hitting a tree in the yard just so? Or watched as the birds flutter around the backyard feeders, vying for the best seed? Landscape and nature photography isn't just sweeping mountain vistas, fields of flowers, or the sun setting over a glistening sea, although those certainly are a huge part of it. Nature photography should draw the viewer into the scene by telling them a story. Regardless of the depth of field used, nature photographs are often filled with details. Those details should grab the viewer's interest, making them peruse the photography intently, pausing along the way to appreciate the beauty in the details. At first glance, the viewer often will not see the full story. A successful nature photograph brings them back to the image to look through it again and again.

In this program, you will learn to seek out and photograph the often overlooked details of landscape and nature photography. You will learn that landscape and nature photography isn't limited to a photograph of a beach at sunrise, but also the tiny shells that make up the beach. You will learn to use those details to enhance your images, adding depth, creativity, and emotion to your photographs. Special equipment is not necessary, however, you may enjoy using a variety of lenses, macro tools, or a Lensbaby if you have them. A tripod is not necessary.

Learning Objectives:
1. Gain an understanding of environmental, landscape, and nature photography.
2. Discuss and demonstrate various settings where you can find beauty in the natural world, from your backyard to the National Park you visit on vacation.
3. Learn to recognize the details and beauty in everyday outdoor settings and create photographs using those details to add depth, emotion, and creativity to your images.
4. Create the best images possible by absorbing yourself in the beautiful simplicity of the natural world, learning to understand nature, weather, and light.
5. Understand what gear is necessary in nature photography, what is beneficial, and what would be fun to use.
6. Learn what to look for when envisioning photographs including light, mood, atmosphere, weather, plants, animals, trails, shores, human subjects in nature, etc.

Limited Capacity full

Do you wish that you could shoot in gorgeous light all the time?  Are you ever disappointed because what you captured looks so much less interesting than what you saw and what you felt during the shoot?  Join Fujifilm X Series and Michelle Turner and you'll learn how to find, use, and even manipulate natural light to create beautiful images each and every time. We'll cover everything from assessing the natural light to modifying it, including how you can use the light in your scene to control or influence the mood of an image. And for those times that you need supplemental light, Michelle will demonstrate the techniques with the super compact and portable FUJIFILM EF-X500 speedlight-- you'll be able to transform the light with just one speedlight on (or off) camera! You'll also get a firsthand look at how you can immediately evaluate the scene through the viewfinder, allowing you to achieve perfect results straight out of camera. So head to the Fujifilm tables in Fifth Avenue, Grand Level to loan the latest X Series gear and join us for a delicious lunch and learn - you'll be seeing and feeling the light before you know it!

Developing Your Creative Edge and Finding Joy in the Process (Summer Murdock)
Limited Capacity filling up

Creating is part of being human, but it’s not easy to stay inspired and continuously churn out work we love. Join Summer Murdock as she reveals how she consistently manages to create new work that is personally meaningful. She will discuss the unexpected benefits that have come from three years of shooting daily, the importance of learning to make art at any stage of life, and ways to nurture creativity without letting it take over your life. You’ll learn how to avoid “creative ruts” by experimenting with different techniques, including Summer’s own use of slow shutters, difficult light, various lenses, underwater photography, freelensing, personal projects, and collaborations. Finally, she will discuss how personal work has made her more confident in client work and what it means to shoot from the heart without letting fear of failure or criticism hold you back.

1. Explore how acknowledging and cultivating your creative side can energize your work.
2. Identify the benefits of shooting daily — without letting it take over your life.
3. Learn techniques to use slow shutter speed creatively, ideas to creatively challenge yourself with difficult light, and how to experiment with different lenses (including tilt shifts) to push you to see things differently.
4. Discover ways to minimize or avoid creative ruts.
5. Understand how personal work will improve your confidence in your client work.
6. Learn how working though (and sometimes embracing) fear can strengthen your artistry.

Capturing Honest Joy in Couples (Anita Martin)
Limited Capacity filling up

I am drawn to joyful images with hair flying, real smiles, honest laughter, and fun. This program would be designed towards photographers looking to connect with their clients on a deeper level and capture pure joy. To me, couples sessions are meant to be fun and show off quirky, beautiful relationships. I feel that everyone looks better with a smile, especially couples! I will give a variety of posing tips to create natural movement and expression while focusing on the connection between the couple. I will provide information on interacting with couples to get authentic joy and love in every image. I will share information on engagements, weddings, booking clients, keeping clients happy, and answer any questions about from attendees during my presentation.

Attendees will be shooting alongside me during this demonstration, with a lovely couple modeling an engagement style session. Please bring your camera and favorite lenses for shooting outdoors. There is no prerequisite for attendees to shoot in manual mode, however I do recommend shooting in manual in backlit lighting situations for proper exposure. Photographers of all levels can learn from the hands-on posing elements of this class.

This class will start with a brief introduction into the world of engagement and wedding photography. As we begin the shooting demonstration we will discuss how to quickly scout a location to see beautiful light, where to place couples in that light, and how to begin using their connection with each other to achieve a feeling of authenticity in their images. There is a level of trust that needs to be earned during a session so the clients feel safe to be themselves and show off the happiness they feel in their relationship, and I will go over how I work to earn and keep that trust.

Learning Objectives:
1. How to interact and connect with clients before and during a photo session. Connection with clients is as important as their connection with each other. In order to capture authentic moments between them they have to trust you to be close to them and be a part of their personal space.
2. How to pose couples to best capture joyful moments.
3. How to naturally create a sense of movement in images.
4. How to move quickly through a session using natural elements and available light to obtain beautiful final images.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Westlake Park and/or the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall.

Westlake Park and the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall will provide an urban background without venturing too far. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes to travel to these locations.

Here's what we'll learn!

- We will discuss several ways that photographers can get to know their clients, even if they've never met them before their session.
- We will watch as Lissa Chandler photographs a high school seniors she has never met prior to the class.
- Photographers will pair up and use the methods discussed to get to know one another with and without our cameras.
- We will leave class feeling comfortable and ready to capture the personality of each and every one of our clients.

Overall, the objective of this class is to teach photographers how to connect with their clients so that their photographs won't just be pretty pictures - they'll be heirloom images packed with personality instead.

Family on Film: Photographing Families in the Home (Ashley Crawford)
Limited Capacity seats available

Shooting film indoors can be very daunting due to lack of light and fear of the unknown upon arrival. We'll begin with a discussion on film stocks that are the most flexible/have the most latitude and the ones I always bring to cover my bases no matter what I'm presented with. We'll talk about how I move families around based on the light I have available to me, what metering techniques work best for different outcomes, and how to manipulate film stock in order to adjust to the scene. Afterwards, we'll move onto a shooting demonstration where I will pose a family and move them around to different lighting scenarios while metering for each scene and talking about how to adjust your settings to shoot the same roll even if your light changes. Everyone will then join in to shoot while I answer questions and continue to talk about camera settings and demonstrate posing techniques. We will end the session with a discussion about pushing film and different ratings as well as directions to give your lab on how to process.

Preferably, everyone should bring either a 35mm or medium format film camera and Kodak Portra 400 film (can also bring Kodak Portra 800 film). If you are brand new to film and would like to observe, shoot, and learn, you are certainly welcome! Please bring your digital camera and lens. Handheld meters are extremely helpful but not necessary. Students should be proficient with loading film and have a basic understanding of film concepts. There will be open Q&A throughout the discussion and shooting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about film stocks in low-light settings, and how to rate and have them processed.
2. Understand metering techniques.
3. Learn family posing.
4. Learn to ue available light for shooting film indoors.

Limited Capacity filling up

Kristin is sponsored by Color Inc
http://www.colorincprolab.com

In this shooting demonstration with a family, see how to help guide your clients into a pose, then capture those real moments when the pose falls apart. Attendees will learn how to photograph authentic portraits with connection, and capture real emotions and interactions between subjects. I will demonstrate how to pose a family, as well as share tips on how to look for details that show their connections and real emotions, not just images where everyone is looking at the camera. Students will see the typical family session flow that I follow and hear how I interact with the family to get real and authentic expressions and emotions. We will discuss lens choice, aperture selection and perspectives, as well as how to create a more artistic portrait.

Attendees should have an understanding of the exposure triangle and be comfortable shooting in manual. Attendees should bring gear they would use at a regular shoot. In between poses, I will ask attendees if anyone would like the opportunity to shoot.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn family posing tricks.
2. Understand how to connect with your clients to capture true emotion.
3. Take portraits that are filled with connection between the subjects and the viewer.

Location:

Multiple Styles, One Family (Jennifer Kielich)
Limited Capacity filling up

Learn to infuse multiple photography styles into one family session. With proper planning and an efficient workflow, you can capture both traditional portraiture and more documentary imagery to give your clients a variety of shots. Toggling back and forth between candid and posed moments will keep your clients interested and prevent small children from getting bored. It will also force you to think outside the box! We will be using a styled model family of 3-5 members, with children ranging from 1-5 years old. The class will begin with a short introduction and a brief shooting demonstration. We will then begin shooting our model family and discuss workflow, posing techniques, and camera settings as we move along. Attendees should have experience shooting in manual mode. Please bring your camera and your favorite wide angle and/or portrait lenses.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to properly plan your poses/workflow so that your session runs smoothly. The session should take an hour or less, because small children won't last much longer than that.
2. Learn how to communicate with the family so they understand what you are asking of them. Going back and forth between smiling at the camera and ignoring the camera can be confusing without clear instruction from the photographer.
3. Learn which poses work and which ones don't when you're infusing more than one style into the session.
4. Learn how to navigate your camera's settings to ensure you are getting proper exposure and are avoiding motion blur. This can be tricky as you go back and forth between candid and posed shots. The settings themselves have a "workflow" all their own!

Location:
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.

Style + Essence: Capturing Authenticity in a Styled Children's Session (Sally Molhoek)
Limited Capacity filling up

Sally is sponsored by Color Inc
http://www.colorincprolab.com

"Styled Lifestyle" doesn't have to be an oxymoron! Sally Kate, known for her unique fusion of styled concept photography with authentically documented moments, will walk you through her styled session workflow from original vision to final edit, and shows you how you don't have to forfeit the real, unscripted, organic moments that are worth capturing. In this hands-on session with children, participants will learn the tools for "setting the stage" (light, location, wardrobe, props, theme, and more), but also learn when it's okay to stop directing and to just step back, pay attention, and not miss a beautiful moment.

Emphasis will be placed on light, angles, perspectives, and expression and how they can enhance your storytelling and help you capture the more "unscripted" parts of the session.

You will also learn why it's advantageous to consider your final edit while you're taking the picture, and in a follow-up PDF and editing video, sent via email after the conference, you'll see Sally's vision come alive in a start-to-finish edit of one or more of the images taken during the class.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to choose a theme, and how to build around the theme to set a stage for the story you want to tell.
2. Understand how to make "magic" by taking styled concept photography and infusing the session with a more documentary, lifestyle approach.
3. Gain an understanding of the importance of light, perspective, color, location, and expression, and how it can be used to enhance a story.
4. Learn how editing plays a big part in delivering amazing impact.

The Magic of Nature: A Field Guide to Shooting Landscapes (Kristen Ryan)
Limited Capacity filling up

In this session, we will explore a landscape shoot from evaluating our location to the final press of the shutter. We will begin by analyzing and discussing the scene as a group. We will consider the lighting, the interest (or lack of) of the sky, what focal length might be best and why, and how we will organize elements in the frame. We will consider the exposure challenges and how to capture the entire dynamic range through a single exposure or multiple exposures. We'll talk about using lines in our images, look for foreground interest, and discuss where to focus in the frame for maximum depth of field and sharpness. As we walk around we will consider varying perspectives to add unique interest and variety to the shoot. Additionally, we will discuss how creative use of settings (aperture, shutter speed) might add a creative effect in our images. Following our discussion, participants will have the opportunity to shoot and ask questions.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to evaluate your scene to begin a landscape shoot (establishing the main interest in a scene and determine whether the sky or foreground deserves more room in the frame, for example).
2. Understand how different focal lengths will effect the potential images captured.
3. Learn how to choose a main focal point and organize the frame.
4. Learn ways of adding depth and interest (leading lines, foreground interest, framing, color).
5. Gain an understanding of how to deal with the exposure challenges of capturing the entire dynamic range.

Working the Scene: Troubleshooting Light and Composition to Capture Moments in Family Photojournalism (Lacey Monroe & Jessica Thomason)
Limited Capacity full

We all know that moment is the centerpiece of a compelling storytelling image. But what other factors do we have to consider in order to best convey a moment? In this class we will dissect the other two important elements of light and composition, and learn how to manage them while not altering the environment or directing your subjects. Join Lacey Monroe and Jessica Thomason as they photograph a family exploring a nearby outdoor location. We will begin by walking to meet the family at the location, then work with the students to identify the elements of light and environment, and identify the different ways to photograph the scene to achieve the best composition(s). Students will learn how to make micro adjustments to manage the clutter in the scene as the family does different activities.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to observe the scene and determine what we need to pay attention to in order to manage our environment. For example: What type of light do we have, how do we best use it? What visual elements do we have in our scene (buildings, furniture, wall/ceiling fixtures, other persons besides the subjects we are photographing)?
2. Learn about what lens choice and camera settings would be good starting points for the scene.
3. Discuss the different compositions with which we can approach the scene, and which one would be best to convey the moments.
4. Learn how to make small adjustments to manage the foreground and background elements, while considering your subject placement.

Breathe Life into Your Senior Photography (Holli True)
Limited Capacity full

Are you finding yourself in a creative rut? Wake up your photography and breathe life back into your senior sessions! Stop worrying about only capturing the perfectly posed shots and start looking for the raw and real moments happening in the in-between. Join High School Senior Photographer Holli True as she demonstrates how to capture a mix of beautifully composed candids and perfectly posed portraits. Build a connection with your clients that will unveil their true, uninhibited, authentic beauty. This program will be broken into two segments.

The first half of this program will be a mix of shooting demonstration by Holli and Q&A. You will see how she engages and connects with the models and watch as they morph from reserved and uncertain to uninhibited and free. Holli will show how she works through the ice-breaker stage of a session and earns their trust through praise, encouragement and engagement. She will also demonstrate how to get your subject moving and how to inspire candid expressions and laughter, followed by ways to mix in beautiful, posed portraits. Holli will be shooting with a 50mm & 85mm lens, utilizing a silver/white reflector.

For the second half of the program, attendees will break into small groups to photograph the models individually. This is the perfect opportunity to capture gorgeous images for your portfolio and put into practice everything you have learned! Holli will be moving between each of the groups, providing feedback and coaching. Each attendee will walk away with beautiful images and a clear understanding of how to better connect with their client and capture a well-rounded portfolio, full of movement, a range of expressions and life.

Because attendees will be shooting in groups, they are advised to bring a lens with a focal length of 50mm or higher.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to engage with your clients to get them to open up and come alive in front of your camera.
2. See simple ways to get your clients moving and having fun during a shoot, creating candid and raw moments and not stiff posing.

Light Play: Finding the Light to Make Your Image (Mae Burke)
Limited Capacity filling up

Light is everything in photography, and I’m going to show you how I use it to take my images to the next level. I’ll take you on a “visual light tour” and we’ll go out searching for all types of light scenarios. I’ll show you how different an image can be just by changing how you are using the light that is given to you. This will be a hands-on program with lots of experimenting and photographing models in all different kinds of light. I'll cover my settings in all situations. Bring your camera and lenses, and a notebook to jot down some notes. I will open up the last 10 minutes of class for a question and answer session.

Learn:
How to find the light
How light changes an image
Camera settings to change the appearance of an image
About low light and how it can enhance the details
How I work with the light that is given to me

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Sculpture Park.

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.

More Than A Session: Giving the Client the Complete Photography Experience (Virginia Greuloch)
Limited Capacity seats available

Taking someone's photo is important, intimate work. Everyone, both photographer and client, wants their photos to display powerful, real connections, but those connections can only manifest themselves during a photo session if you begin building the clients' trust from the first inquiry and never stop - even long after your time together is finished. In this classroom business session, attendees will learn that real connections happen during photo sessions if you are willing to face your own vulnerability and fears when it's time to press the shutter. Giving the complete photography experience means that you've begun to establish a friendship before you meet for the session by showing them who you are and what your values are, getting in deep with your clients during the session and giving them a safe place to truly open up and show the most authentic version of themselves, and following up with them to make sure that those images get displayed in their homes and do not sit idly in a folder on their hard drives. From first inquiry through the in-person sales appointment, this course will show you the true value of what you can do and provide a toolbox of tips for how to improve your photography business.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to establish a connection with your client through the inquiry process and explain why having a pre-consultation on the phone or in person is so important to building their trust.
2. Learn to tap into your own vulnerability and fears so that your clients will have a safe space to let down their guard and give you authentic moments to photograph.
3. Learn tips to help your clients tap into their true emotions and have real connections that make them remember the session as more than someone just taking their photo.

Moving Portraits: Combining DSLR Video and Stills in Newborn Sessions (Alison Winterroth)
Limited Capacity filling up

Alison is sponsored by ShootProof
https://www.shootproof.com

In this class you will learn how to combine still photographs with videography to make a full 30-35 image gallery as well as a 1-3 minute film of your session. We will use gentle posing, neutral colors and creative techniques to make beautiful imagery and a film to remember every detail of a newborn's first days. By shooting video of a newborn doll alongside still images, we will show how you can create a film without tons of extra equipment or additional session time. We will also talk about editing, camera settings, focusing, lens choice and music licensing. Participants do not need DSLR video knowledge for this class.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about simple newborn posing.
2. Learn about basic DSLR video settings.
3. Practice focusing when shooting video.
4. See a demonstration of shots that can fill a gallery with photographs as well as video clips.
5. Learn about editing and presenting films and photographs together.

Photographing Styled Seniors (Leslie Kerrigan)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this program, I will lead a group of attendees through a stylized senior photo shoot. I will help attendees understand how putting together styled shoots on their own will help boost their business as well as improve their craft. This program will consist of mostly shooting, and I'll be on hand to help attendees with posing, lighting and more. We will discuss the benefits of putting together styled shoots as well as how to incorporate styled shoots into a rep or spokesmodel shoot. I will help attendees with posing groups and will split up models so attendees can also break up into small groups in order to have ample time photographing all the models. Attendees should bring their favorite lenses, plenty of memory cards, camera and anything else they use when shooting. This will be a fun, on-location, styled shoot where attendees will walk away with amazing images for their portfolios, marketing and more!

In this program, attendees will learn:
- How to style a photo shoot
- How styled photo shoots help business and photographers
- How to pose more than one senior for group shots
- How group shoots can translate into model shoots for a rep or spokesmodel program

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place around Pike Place Market, the Gum Wall and Post Alley, and/or the waterfront.

This urban area provides a lot of opportunities for interesting backgrounds and is only a few blocks away from the Westin. Pike Place Market is a busy urban market that is an iconic tourist destination. The Gum Wall and Post Alley provide interesting urban street scenes, as well as great color and texture. Beyond the Market, Gum Wall, and Post Alley, your group may venture down to the waterfront. The waterfront boardwalk area is a lovely place for capturing scenic shots of the sky, cityscape, and the ferris wheel. Please note that there are many steps required to get from the market to the waterfront. There is a small elevator available. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to walk to Pike Place Market from the Westin, and the waterfront is an additional 10 minutes beyond the Market. To return to the Westin from the waterfront at the conclusion of the program (remember this walk is uphill), please budget 20-25 minutes.

PNW Styled Wedding Shoot-Out (Bre Thurston)
Limited Capacity full

Bre is sponsored by Miller's Professional Imaging
http://www.millerslab.com/

What could be more fun than photographing Pacific Northwest inspired wedding portraits on location in downtown Seattle? We will explore urban locations and see how we can use them to create beautifully unique portraits. Our couple will be styled with a PNW theme in mind. Bre will help guide us to fun pockets of light, assist with flattering poses, and show how to use urban locations. Depending on the weather, we will either play with sunlight or play with low light, because when you're shooting an actual wedding you have to work with what you've got! Attendees can expect to shoot a lot, as Bre will step back after she's assisted with posing. Our models will be uniquely "Seattle!" Attendees are encouraged to bring at least one wide lens and one long lens.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to use the light you are given.
2. Learn how to pose wedding clients in ways that are flattering and genuinely comfortable for them.
3. Learn how to use an urban environment to create unique wedding-day portraits.

Beauty in the Mess of Life: Family Session Shoot (Mae Burke)
Limited Capacity full

Join me as I walk attendees step-by-step through a live family shoot (with a real family at the session). I will describe what I’m looking for in a great photo, how I set up shots, and the moments I’m trying to achieve. You’ll get an in depth look at how I bring images to life with moments of truth and movement. My goal is to help you capture the imperfect beauty that surrounds a family session, and to help you be able to show your clients how these moments with feeling and messes are so beautiful to capture and will bring back a truthful memory when clients look at them. My goal with family photography is to capture it as it is, to show how they love and how they connect, and I’m going to show you just how I do that. I will be shooting in manual mode and explaining my settings as I go, but shooting in manual is not a requirement for attendees, as it is the “big picture” of family photography that I want to bring to light. Bring your camera and lenses (ideally a wide angle lens) as I will like attendees to practice what I am teaching. Bring a notebook and pen to jot down some notes as you go. I will open it up for questions during the last 10 minutes of our time together.

Learn:
How to best create real moments
How I get my clients to engage
My process for a family shoot
How I bring an image to life
How I combine my surroundings, movement and light to take my photos to the next level
To see the beauty in imperfection and truth

Multiple Styles, One Family (Jennifer Kielich)
Limited Capacity full

Learn to infuse multiple photography styles into one family session. With proper planning and an efficient workflow, you can capture both traditional portraiture and more documentary imagery to give your clients a variety of shots. Toggling back and forth between candid and posed moments will keep your clients interested and prevent small children from getting bored. It will also force you to think outside the box! We will be using a styled model family of 3-5 members, with children ranging from 1-5 years old. The class will begin with a short introduction and a brief shooting demonstration. We will then begin shooting our model family and discuss workflow, posing techniques, and camera settings as we move along. Attendees should have experience shooting in manual mode. Please bring your camera and your favorite wide angle and/or portrait lenses.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to properly plan your poses/workflow so that your session runs smoothly. The session should take an hour or less, because small children won't last much longer than that.
2. Learn how to communicate with the family so they understand what you are asking of them. Going back and forth between smiling at the camera and ignoring the camera can be confusing without clear instruction from the photographer.
3. Learn which poses work and which ones don't when you're infusing more than one style into the session.
4. Learn how to navigate your camera's settings to ensure you are getting proper exposure and are avoiding motion blur. This can be tricky as you go back and forth between candid and posed shots. The settings themselves have a "workflow" all their own!

Shoot More, Less Often: Anticipation and Photographer’s Perspective in Family Photojournalism (Lacey Monroe & Jessica Thomason)
Limited Capacity full

Ever feel like you are chasing the moments when you are working with a family? Or wonder what decisions to make when simultaneous moments are happening during a session? Join Lacey Monroe and Jessica Thomason as they discuss the importance of anticipation, patience, and knowing when and what moments to shoot. In this group shooting program, Felicia and Jessica will photograph a family in a home-like environment. Learn about artistic voice and vision, and how it affects what is important for each person to capture. Learn about in-camera choices, light, and composition, as well as how to choose what moments to shoot.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to anticipate what potential moments may unfold in a given scene by discussing what the subjects are doing and what would typically happen with children’s behavior and reactions.
2. Learn to manage light and composition and determine the best places to be for when the moment happens.
3. Through careful observation of interactions between subjects, learn how to be deliberate about which moments to shoot (i.e. shooting less often, shooting subjects’ reactions not what they are doing).
4. For any moments occurring, learn how to be mindful of why it is important to you, what you want to say as an artist, and how these considerations affect the technical and creative choices used to convey your perspective of that moment.

The Magic of Nature: A Field Guide to Shooting Landscapes (Kristen Ryan)
Limited Capacity filling up

In this session, we will explore a landscape shoot from evaluating our location to the final press of the shutter. We will begin by analyzing and discussing the scene as a group. We will consider the lighting, the interest (or lack of) of the sky, what focal length might be best and why, and how we will organize elements in the frame. We will consider the exposure challenges and how to capture the entire dynamic range through a single exposure or multiple exposures. We'll talk about using lines in our images, look for foreground interest, and discuss where to focus in the frame for maximum depth of field and sharpness. As we walk around we will consider varying perspectives to add unique interest and variety to the shoot. Additionally, we will discuss how creative use of settings (aperture, shutter speed) might add a creative effect in our images. Following our discussion, participants will have the opportunity to shoot and ask questions.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to evaluate your scene to begin a landscape shoot (establishing the main interest in a scene and determine whether the sky or foreground deserves more room in the frame, for example).
2. Understand how different focal lengths will effect the potential images captured.
3. Learn how to choose a main focal point and organize the frame.
4. Learn ways of adding depth and interest (leading lines, foreground interest, framing, color).
5. Gain an understanding of how to deal with the exposure challenges of capturing the entire dynamic range.

The Playful Portrait Session (Bre Thurston)
Limited Capacity filling up

Bre is sponsored by Miller's Professional Imaging
http://www.millerslab.com/

In this class we will discuss how you can take a posed portrait and craft moments through interaction, playfulness, and movement. Our clients won't magically laugh, play, and show their emotions as soon as they stand in front of our camera so it's our job to coax those things out of them. By getting comfortable with our clients, we allow them to relax and have fun. "You really say that to your clients?" Heck yes! Bre will show you how she jokes and laughs with subjects to break down walls, allowing her to photograph sweet, playful moments instead of forced, stiff poses. Bre will begin by posing the models, explaining how we plan to "un-pose" them, and allow all attendees to shoot. Our models will be a real family, but these methods can be applied to nearly any subject. Because authentic moments happen quickly, attendees need to be prepared to shoot quickly. Having a range of lenses (ideally a long lens, like an 85/100/135/70-200) will help you capture shots even among a group of other attendees.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to create portraits that are authentically relaxed and playful.
2. Learn how to "un-pose" by creating a pose and then focusing on connection/the moment through humor and movement.
3. Learn how to comfortably move through a session and interact with your clients.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Westlake Park and/or the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall.

Westlake Park and the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall will provide an urban background without venturing too far. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes to travel to these locations.

Many of us are great photographers, but feel lost when we decide to turn our photography into a business. The truth is running a business is really hard work. And running a profitable business is harder still. I have been a photographer for 16 years, and in that time I have gone from a girl with a borrowed camera, charging $100 for a portrait session, to the owner of one of Seattle's most successful portrait studios. Building the business of your dreams, the one that allows you to do what you love and make a great living doing it, is absolutely possible. But to build that business there are three super important things you MUST know. Join me to learn these secrets, and finally have the business you always dreamed about.

1. Learn how to set yourself apart from your competition.
2. Understand how to identify your target market.
3. Learn how to create a marketing plan that really works.

Creating Meaningful Portraits Indoors: Using the Light You've Got to Get the Shot (Anita Martin)
Limited Capacity full

Sometimes weather doesn't cooperate and you are forced to shoot a couple indoors on a dark day. Sometimes a wedding day runs behind and the sun sets before you can do portraits. Sometimes you have to work in low light and ambient light or need to supplement with artificial light. I will demonstrate an indoor photo session in one location with one natural light source where we put on our creative hats and work with the light we've got! The focus of this session is on being close and creating natural connection in images without having access to beautiful sweeping landscapes.

Attendees will be shooting alongside me during this demonstration with a couple. Please bring your camera and favorite lenses for shooting indoors. Students should have some experience shooting in manual mode. Photographers of all levels can learn from the hands-on posing elements of this class. I will provide a video light for attendees to use during the demonstration, as needed.

The shooting demonstration will be with a couple, however the program is relevant to photographers shooting families in a client's home where the lighting situation is not ideal. I will talk about using light to flatter the woman and using light to highlight emotion. Light is powerful when used to show off connection and a couples session in low light is the best way to keep it simple and focus on what is most important - their relationship. You can be romantic and moody and create powerful sensual images or you can be silly and fun and still create images that show joy and really capture their personalities!

This class will dive right into finding light and will include hands-on posing and a brief overview of how to use your gear to best shoot in low light. I will talk in depth about connecting with my clients during the demonstration. When you are in close quarters with your subjects it is so important to earn their trust so the images will reflect their true personalities. I will also demonstrate posing and lighting techniques with a video light and answer questions about post-processing and editing ideas and tips for images taken in a low light setting.

Learning Objectives:
1. How to search for and find light in any environment, creating light if necessary, and using that light to highlight and flatter your subjects.
2. Posing in a small space, using creative posing techniques and interaction to add a sense of movement and authenticity.
3. Connecting with people in a small environment and using that connection to capture meaningful images.
4. Post processing ideas and concepts from a session in low light.

Family on Film: Photographing Families in the Home (Ashley Crawford)
Limited Capacity seats available

Shooting film indoors can be very daunting due to lack of light and fear of the unknown upon arrival. We'll begin with a discussion on film stocks that are the most flexible/have the most latitude and the ones I always bring to cover my bases no matter what I'm presented with. We'll talk about how I move families around based on the light I have available to me, what metering techniques work best for different outcomes, and how to manipulate film stock in order to adjust to the scene. Afterwards, we'll move onto a shooting demonstration where I will pose a family and move them around to different lighting scenarios while metering for each scene and talking about how to adjust your settings to shoot the same roll even if your light changes. Everyone will then join in to shoot while I answer questions and continue to talk about camera settings and demonstrate posing techniques. We will end the session with a discussion about pushing film and different ratings as well as directions to give your lab on how to process.

Preferably, everyone should bring either a 35mm or medium format film camera and Kodak Portra 400 film (can also bring Kodak Portra 800 film). If you are brand new to film and would like to observe, shoot, and learn, you are certainly welcome! Please bring your digital camera and lens. Handheld meters are extremely helpful but not necessary. Students should be proficient with loading film and have a basic understanding of film concepts. There will be open Q&A throughout the discussion and shooting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about film stocks in low-light settings, and how to rate and have them processed.
2. Understand metering techniques.
3. Learn family posing.
4. Learn to ue available light for shooting film indoors.

Family Photography: Photographing the Moments When the Pose Falls Apart (Kristin Dokoza)
Limited Capacity full

Kristin is sponsored by Color Inc
http://www.colorincprolab.com

In this shooting demonstration with a family, see how to help guide your clients into a pose, then capture those real moments when the pose falls apart. Attendees will learn how to photograph authentic portraits with connection, and capture real emotions and interactions between subjects. I will demonstrate how to pose a family, as well as share tips on how to look for details that show their connections and real emotions, not just images where everyone is looking at the camera. Students will see the typical family session flow that I follow and hear how I interact with the family to get real and authentic expressions and emotions. We will discuss lens choice, aperture selection and perspectives, as well as how to create a more artistic portrait.

Attendees should have an understanding of the exposure triangle and be comfortable shooting in manual. Attendees should bring gear they would use at a regular shoot. In between poses, I will ask attendees if anyone would like the opportunity to shoot.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn family posing tricks.
2. Understand how to connect with your clients to capture true emotion.
3. Take portraits that are filled with connection between the subjects and the viewer.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Seattle Center. 

The Seattle Center requires a brief ride (approximately 2-3 minutes) on a nearby monorail train that runs on a loop and departs approximately every 10 minutes from the Westlake Center Mall (across the street from the Westin). Travel time can range from approximately 15-24 minutes, depending on group size, how quickly the group moves, and how quickly the group can board the monorail. The Seattle Center is massive with tons of usable shooting space, from green park-like areas to funky walls and sculptures. The Space Needle is located within the Seattle Center. Attendees in programs taking place at the Seattle Center will be provided a round trip ticket for the monorail at the beginning of the program. The group will travel together to the Seattle Center. After the program concludes, attendees may travel back to the Westin at their leisure.

How to Successfully Coordinate and Execute a Senior Group Shoot (Holli True)
Limited Capacity seats available

The idea of planning and preparing for a styled shoot can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be! Join High School Senior Photographer Holli True as she explains how to turn a simple idea into a successful portrait campaign that will get your photography business recognized. This program will be taking place on-location in natural light and will be broken into three segments.

During the first segment, Holli will walk you through her session workflow while photographing a group, capturing multiple breakdowns and working with senior models individually. You'll learn how to build an editorial story through cohesive styling, choosing the right locations and shooting with purpose. Holli will be shooting with a 50mm & 85mm lens, utilizing a silver/white reflector.

The second segment will consist of Holli posing the senior models as a group for the attendees to photograph. The goal is for every attendee to walk away with images for their portfolios. In order for this to happen, it is vital that everyone quickly get their shots and then switch places with other attendees to do the same.

For the third and final segment of this program, attendees will have the opportunity to photograph the models individually in small shooting groups. This is the perfect opportunity to capture gorgeous images for your portfolio and put into practice everything you have learned! Holli will be moving between each of the groups, providing feedback and coaching. This packed program will conclude with a short Q&A session.

Because attendees will be shooting in groups, they are advised to bring a lens with a focal length of at least 50mm for the group shots and 85mm for the individual portraits.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to build a styled concept shoot from an idea to execution, create an editorial story, and style cohesively as a group while maintaining the individuality of the models.
2. Learn to choose the right locations that fit the concept and will give you a variety of options when there are limitations (limited space, traffic, distractions).
3. Create a session workflow.
4. Photograph seniors as a large group, smaller group, and individuals while shooting with purpose for your brand, marketing and sales.
5. Capture both editorial and sellable portraits.

More Than A Session: Giving the Client the Complete Photography Experience (Virginia Greuloch)
Limited Capacity seats available

Taking someone's photo is important, intimate work. Everyone, both photographer and client, wants their photos to display powerful, real connections, but those connections can only manifest themselves during a photo session if you begin building the clients' trust from the first inquiry and never stop - even long after your time together is finished. In this classroom business session, attendees will learn that real connections happen during photo sessions if you are willing to face your own vulnerability and fears when it's time to press the shutter. Giving the complete photography experience means that you've begun to establish a friendship before you meet for the session by showing them who you are and what your values are, getting in deep with your clients during the session and giving them a safe place to truly open up and show the most authentic version of themselves, and following up with them to make sure that those images get displayed in their homes and do not sit idly in a folder on their hard drives. From first inquiry through the in-person sales appointment, this course will show you the true value of what you can do and provide a toolbox of tips for how to improve your photography business.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to establish a connection with your client through the inquiry process and explain why having a pre-consultation on the phone or in person is so important to building their trust.
2. Learn to tap into your own vulnerability and fears so that your clients will have a safe space to let down their guard and give you authentic moments to photograph.
3. Learn tips to help your clients tap into their true emotions and have real connections that make them remember the session as more than someone just taking their photo.
4. Understand the importance of in-person sales, both for your business and your clients' lives.
5. Learn simple tips on how to start building a brand that reflects who you are and attracts the clients that you want to work with.
6. See why the business of photography is more than just taking pictures and that photographing clients goes beyond the session.

Simple Beauty: Photographing Families with Window Light in Small Spaces (Anna Larson)
Limited Capacity filling up

This session will include a demonstration and plenty of hands-on shooting. We'll be covering how you can make a variety of beautiful, multi-subject images using minimal space and simple window light. You'll have the opportunity to photograph a mother and young child, gaining a better idea of how to naturally guide your subjects based on the light you're given. You can't always predict the lighting conditions, so it's important to understand how light works and how to best utilize what you have. There are so many images that can be made in a short amount of time if subject connection and light are understood.
My goal is for you to feel confident when you walk into any space, and be able to create diversity without uncertainty. This class is ideal for anyone who would like to offer shorter (mini) sessions that capture an intimate and personal feel or photographers who wish to offer in-home family sessions.
It's highly recommended that you are comfortable shooting in manual mode. The recommended focal lengths for this class are 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm.

Learning Objectives:
1) To study where natural window light falls, based on where the subject is placed in relation to the source.
2) To understand how light works when there are multiple subjects and how to naturally guide clients so the light falls beautifully on them.
3) To study angles and properly choose lenses for a small spaces.
4) To expose properly in camera based on highlights or shadows, creating a variety different images.
5) To build confidence so that natural, connected portraits can be made within a client's home.

Beauty in the Mess of Life: Family Session Shoot (Mae Burke)
Limited Capacity filling up

Join me as I walk attendees step-by-step through a live family shoot (with a real family at the session). I will describe what I’m looking for in a great photo, how I set up shots, and the moments I’m trying to achieve. You’ll get an in depth look at how I bring images to life with moments of truth and movement. My goal is to help you capture the imperfect beauty that surrounds a family session, and to help you be able to show your clients how these moments with feeling and messes are so beautiful to capture and will bring back a truthful memory when clients look at them. My goal with family photography is to capture it as it is, to show how they love and how they connect, and I’m going to show you just how I do that. I will be shooting in manual mode and explaining my settings as I go, but shooting in manual is not a requirement for attendees, as it is the “big picture” of family photography that I want to bring to light. Bring your camera and lenses (ideally a wide angle lens) as I will like attendees to practice what I am teaching. Bring a notebook and pen to jot down some notes as you go. I will open it up for questions during the last 10 minutes of our time together.

Learn:
How to best create real moments
How I get my clients to engage
My process for a family shoot
How I bring an image to life
How I combine my surroundings, movement and light to take my photos to the next level
To see the beauty in imperfection and truth

Join High School Senior Photographer Holli True as she demonstrates how to capture a mix of beautifully composed candids and perfectly posed portraits. Build a connection with your clients that will unveil their true, uninhibited, authentic beauty. This program will be broken into two segments.

The first half of this program will be a mix of shooting demonstration by Holli and Q&A. You will see how she engages and connects with the models and watch as they morph from reserved and uncertain to uninhibited and free. Holli will show how she works through the ice-breaker stage of a session and earns their trust through praise, encouragement and engagement. She will also demonstrate how to get your subject moving and how to inspire candid expressions and laughter, followed by ways to mix in beautiful, posed portraits. Holli will be shooting with a 50mm & 85mm lens, utilizing a silver/white reflector.

For the second half of the program, attendees will break into small groups to photograph the models individually. This is the perfect opportunity to capture gorgeous images for your portfolio and put into practice everything you have learned! Holli will be moving between each of the groups, providing feedback and coaching. Each attendee will walk away with beautiful images and a clear understanding of how to better connect with their client and capture a well-rounded portfolio, full of movement, a range of expressions and life.

Because attendees will be shooting in groups, they are advised to bring a lens with a focal length of 50mm or higher.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to engage with your clients to get them to open up and come alive in front of your camera.
2. See simple ways to get your clients moving and having fun during a shoot, creating candid and raw moments and not stiff posing.
3. Learn how to mix beautifully composed candids with perfectly posed portraits.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place around Pike Place Market, the Gum Wall and Post Alley, and/or the waterfront.

This urban area provides a lot of opportunities for interesting backgrounds and is only a few blocks away from the Westin. Pike Place Market is a busy urban market that is an iconic tourist destination. The Gum Wall and Post Alley provide interesting urban street scenes, as well as great color and texture. Beyond the Market, Gum Wall, and Post Alley, your group may venture down to the waterfront. The waterfront boardwalk area is a lovely place for capturing scenic shots of the sky, cityscape, and the ferris wheel. Please note that there are many steps required to get from the market to the waterfront. There is a small elevator available. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to walk to Pike Place Market from the Westin, and the waterfront is an additional 10 minutes beyond the Market. To return to the Westin from the waterfront at the conclusion of the program (remember this walk is uphill), please budget 20-25 minutes.

Capturing Honest Joy in Couples (Anita Martin)
Limited Capacity filling up

I am drawn to joyful images with hair flying, real smiles, honest laughter, and fun. This program would be designed towards photographers looking to connect with their clients on a deeper level and capture pure joy. To me, couples sessions are meant to be fun and show off quirky, beautiful relationships. I feel that everyone looks better with a smile, especially couples! I will give a variety of posing tips to create natural movement and expression while focusing on the connection between the couple. I will provide information on interacting with couples to get authentic joy and love in every image. I will share information on engagements, weddings, booking clients, keeping clients happy, and answer any questions about from attendees during my presentation.

Attendees will be shooting alongside me during this demonstration, with a lovely couple modeling an engagement style session. Please bring your camera and favorite lenses for shooting outdoors. There is no prerequisite for attendees to shoot in manual mode, however I do recommend shooting in manual in backlit lighting situations for proper exposure. Photographers of all levels can learn from the hands-on posing elements of this class.

This class will start with a brief introduction into the world of engagement and wedding photography. As we begin the shooting demonstration we will discuss how to quickly scout a location to see beautiful light, where to place couples in that light, and how to begin using their connection with each other to achieve a feeling of authenticity in their images. There is a level of trust that needs to be earned during a session so the clients feel safe to be themselves and show off the happiness they feel in their relationship, and I will go over how I work to earn and keep that trust.

Learning Objectives:
1. How to interact and connect with clients before and during a photo session. Connection with clients is as important as their connection with each other. In order to capture authentic moments between them they have to trust you to be close to them and be a part of their personal space.
2. How to pose couples to best capture joyful moments.
3. How to naturally create a sense of movement in images.
4. How to move quickly through a session using natural elements and available light to obtain beautiful final images.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Westlake Park and/or the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall.

Westlake Park and the streets around the Westin and Westlake Center Mall will provide an urban background without venturing too far. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes to travel to these locations.

Photographing Styled Seniors (Leslie Kerrigan)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this program, I will lead a group of attendees through a stylized senior photo shoot. I will help attendees understand how putting together styled shoots on their own will help boost their business as well as improve their craft. This program will consist of mostly shooting, and I'll be on hand to help attendees with posing, lighting and more. We will discuss the benefits of putting together styled shoots as well as how to incorporate styled shoots into a rep or spokesmodel shoot. I will help attendees with posing groups and will split up models so attendees can also break up into small groups in order to have ample time photographing all the models. Attendees should bring their favorite lenses, plenty of memory cards, camera and anything else they use when shooting. This will be a fun, on-location, styled shoot where attendees will walk away with amazing images for their portfolios, marketing and more!

In this program, attendees will learn:
- How to style a photo shoot
- How styled photo shoots help business and photographers
- How to pose more than one senior for group shots
- How group shoots can translate into model shoots for a rep or spokesmodel program

Location:
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.

The Power of Play: Capturing Authenticity in Children and Family Portraiture (Virginia Greuloch)
Limited Capacity filling up

Capturing a child's true personality is not an experience reserved just for lifestyle and documentary photographers. Every parent wants you to capture their child’s authentic self and his or her real connection to their family. They want to see the real smiles, not the “for-the-camera” smiles. They want the session to be relaxed and as fun-filled as possible for the entire family. Join Virginia Greuloch as she demonstrates how to use child-led methods in a photography session with a child. Capture the child's authentic joy while incorporating movement to create modern children's portraiture. Creating opportunities for children and families to play together can give families memories that will last forever - and not just because it was the day that the photographer was there. They will remember that it was a day that they came together to laugh and to play and to love each other. Learn how to use the power of play in this shooting demo/group shoot program with kids in order to make a portrait photography session that will create images and memories that last a lifetime.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to establish trust with the children you are photographing.
2. Learn to incorporate a play-based, child-centered approach to photography.
3. Gain tips and tools to encourage playfulness with children and genuine connections with the whole family.
4. Find new ways to encourage playfulness in older children and adults.
5. Learn to photograph a series to later be printed and used for a gallery wall, image box, or album to sell to the client after the session is completed.
6. Use a shot list to create a complete session that highlights relationships with everyone in the entire family.
7. Use the play-based approach to photograph child models in an outdoor environment.

Location:
This outdoor Boutique Program will take place at Seattle Center. 

The Seattle Center requires a brief ride (approximately 2-3 minutes) on a nearby monorail train that runs on a loop and departs approximately every 10 minutes from the Westlake Center Mall (across the street from the Westin). Travel time can range from approximately 15-24 minutes, depending on group size, how quickly the group moves, and how quickly the group can board the monorail. The Seattle Center is massive with tons of usable shooting space, from green park-like areas to funky walls and sculptures. The Space Needle is located within the Seattle Center. Attendees in programs taking place at the Seattle Center will be provided a round trip ticket for the monorail at the beginning of the program. The group will travel together to the Seattle Center. After the program concludes, attendees may travel back to the Westin at their leisure.

The Sibling Connection: Documenting Relationships In Early Childhood (Jennifer Kielich)
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn how to gently guide young siblings through an indoor lifestyle session. We will be using young models (ages 2-5) to document organic interactions in various lighting conditions, while focusing on the tools needed to navigate your own successful lifestyle sessions. The class will start with a short introduction, followed by a shooting demonstration, and then we'll break into small groups to take turns photographing our models. Because our models will be so young, we will not have more than 3-4 attendees shooting at once (we don't want to overwhelm them or distract them from interacting with one another). This will also provide each attendee a better shooting experience since there will be more room to get creative! Attendees should have experience shooting in manual mode. Please bring your camera and at least one wide angle lens.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to communicate with young children in order to facilitate natural interaction and heartwarming moments.
2. Learn how to use the environment itself to add more layers to the story.
3. Learn to let go of traditional expectations by embracing body language and posture (faceless images).
4. Learn to think outside the box with regard to composition in order to make the story more compelling.
5. Learn to add depth to your images by utilizing higher ISO settings.

2) To understand how light works when there are multiple subjects and how to naturally guide clients so the light falls beautifully on them.
3) To study angles and properly choose lenses for a small spaces.
4) To expose properly in camera based on highlights or shadows, creating a variety different images.

Style + Essence: Capturing Authenticity in a Styled Children's Session (Sally Molhoek)
Limited Capacity filling up

Sally is sponsored by Color Inc
http://www.colorincprolab.com

"Styled Lifestyle" doesn't have to be an oxymoron! Sally Kate, known for her unique fusion of styled concept photography with authentically documented moments, will walk you through her styled session workflow from original vision to final edit, and shows you how you don't have to forfeit the real, unscripted, organic moments that are worth capturing. In this hands-on session with children, participants will learn the tools for "setting the stage" (light, location, wardrobe, props, theme, and more), but also learn when it's okay to stop directing and to just step back, pay attention, and not miss a beautiful moment.

Emphasis will be placed on light, angles, perspectives, and expression and how they can enhance your storytelling and help you capture the more "unscripted" parts of the session.

You will also learn why it's advantageous to consider your final edit while you're taking the picture, and in a follow-up PDF and editing video, sent via email after the conference, you'll see Sally's vision come alive in a start-to-finish edit of one or more of the images taken during the class.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to choose a theme, and how to build around the theme to set a stage for the story you want to tell.
2. Understand how to make "magic" by taking styled concept photography and infusing the session with a more documentary, lifestyle approach.
3. Gain an understanding of the importance of light, perspective, color, location, and expression, and how it can be used to enhance a story.
4. Learn how editing plays a big part in delivering amazing impact.

The Art of Darkness (Allison McSorley)
Limited Capacity full

This 90-minute hands-on session will focus on using indoor natural light and composition to create artistic children’s imagery. It will begin with a brief discussion of both light and composition and the roles each play not only in shaping mood and message but also in the creation of compelling photographs. This discussion will be followed by the hands-on shooting portion of the program where the instructor will guide participants through various lighting and composition setups/opportunities, both posed and spontaneous, with several young subjects in a lifestyle setting.

At the conclusion of this program, students will have a better understanding of how to:
1) recognize directional light opportunities - front light, side light, back light
2) manipulate light with available modifiers
3) identify unique composition opportunities - framing, lines, negative space, depth, perspective, etc.
4) incorporate available indoor light and environmental elements into their workflow to create stronger, more compelling and artistic images
