Lightroom Presets


 

Editing is a crucial part of any photographer's workflow. Over the years I've been working on a set of Lightroom presets that I've been using on my own photos and they will be available to the public during September 2016.

2016 Workshops

Without the help of the photographers and guidance of mentors in my life, I would never have built a business like the one I have today. Through their help and support, I’ve become the photographer I am and for that I will be forever grateful.

My workshops are intimate, fun, informal and a great way to meet other photographers.

At my workshops I cover topics relating to the business-behind-the-photography, practical shooting, general tips, marketing, social media, branding and so much more. Sign up for my photographer's newsletter below to stay in the loop as soon as new dates become available.

Your advice has been INVALUABLE to me starting up my business. Your generosity in sharing information has really fast-forwarded my knowledge of this business. Seriously. And one of the biggest helps.

I loved this workshop, because it reminded me that I’m the force behind my brand...I feel very inspired after this, like a Vitamin B injection - ready to take on the industry.

SOUTH AFRICA WORKSHOPS 2016

My workshop will take you to a place where you are excited to move to new heights. If you want a quick fix, you should probably skip this one. But if you're ready to dig deep, get to know yourself, be honest and work really hard at your brand, I'm ready to share the past 18 years of experience in a condensed 3 day intensive workshop.

These workshops will cover all the basics from camera settings, shooting and how I edit, to the intense situations we find ourselves in once we start turning our passion into a business. Throughout the three days I'll share my thoughts, stories and all the little bits that brought my business to where it is today. If you're ready to discover who you really are... this one is for you.*

*This workshop will run over three days. The workshop is ideally aimed at wedding / portrait / lifestyle photographers who have been in the industry for at least 1-5 years. The main focus of the workshop will be on self discovery, through facilitated conversations. I've learned that no one knows your business as well as you do, however sometimes all you need is a little help to take it to the next level. That's why my workshops are informal, mainly focussing on helping you discover how to make small changes, that will have a big impact on your business. 

My stories will help, inspire and encourage you to create a brand that is a reflection of you. The three days will be a journey of self discovery that will leave you refreshed and ready for the next season. We'll talk about how to market your brand in an authentic way, how to run your passion as a business and all the nitty gritty of digital workflow, including social media, processes that will change your life and the basics of Lightroom editing. During the three days we'll also photograph a beautiful styled shoot, designed by my friends in the wedding industry.

The workshops will include coffee, tea, snacks, lunch and a welcome dinner on the first night.

*Only 10 seats available per workshop.

 

ONE-ON-ONE MENTORSHIP

During the year I offer a few one-on-one mentorship sessions. These sessions aim to help you discover yourself, where your business is going and to help you focus on a few key elements that could make a huge difference in your business.

You bring the questions, I help you to discover the answers. Mentorship sessions start at R1500 per hour.
