Branding Photography for Beginners

If you want to stop posting poorly lit and off-brand images to your social media, and you want to start creating the STUNNING brand images that you need, join us at the upcoming Brand Photography for Beginners Workshop.

Sunday, July 14th 11 am - 1 pm
Coffee Paint Repeat

You’re a small business owner and you’re building a brand. You have social media but you’re not impressing yourself with your Instagram skills and you know you could be attracting a LOT more customers and publicity with better brand photography.

But who has an extra $2,500 for custom brand photography?

As a professional photographer, I’m going to dish out my photography secrets that I’ve learned from years of study and mentoring.

If you have a camera that you need to learn how to use, or you just have a smartphone, I’ll show you how to use natural light for better photos, use your iPhone or DSLR, and edit like a professional in this 2-hour workshop.

Held at the beautiful Coffee Paint Repeat studio in downtown Meridian. You’ll learn how to become your own brand stylist and photographer.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll understand:

  • Using and capturing natural light

  • Maximizing your smartphone settings

  • Understanding your DSLR camera settings (don’t have one? No problem. You can learn on your phone too)

  • Fixing your white balance (and . . . what the heck is white balance and do I need it?)

  • Creating artful compositions

  • Taking flattering photos of yourself (let’s call these, high-class selfies)
