Photography Workshop

Stylized Photography Workshop

Join us for a 2 day, 3-part photography workshop and shoot in multiple Southern California locations. Included in this workshop are hands-on instruction with three distinct stylized photography shoots set against California’s gorgeous backdrops.


3-Part Workshop:

  • The San Juan Capistrano Mission: After a quick train ride, step back in time to the beautiful San Juan Capistrano Mission. We will set up an amazing photo shoot with Spanish folklore dancers as our models against this masterful backdrop to create a vintage look.  With its variety of scenes from romantic arches and shadows, to dramatic ruins, and the “Old Masters” feel of the chapel with its intricate detail, you will be immersed and inspired by its beauty.


  • Urban/Hip Night Shoot: In the early evening we will head towards the trendy Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego for our second stylized shoot. The evening shoot will focus on nighttime photography and create glamorous editorial looks utilizing creative lighting techniques.


  • High Fashion Day Shoot: On the second day, we will head towards the beaches of San Diego for a high-fashion model shoot set against the backdrop of downtown San Diego. For the third part of our series, you will learn to overcome harsh sunlight by utilizing flash to create natural and beautiful portraits.
