Beachside Resort Portraits


What Will Be Covered?

Erik will introduce you to various pieces of natural-lighting equipment to help you tame bright sunlight while adding that extra pop to your outdoors portraits. You'll learn the trick to finessing the best possible light out of your reflectors, as well as how to diffuse and redirect harsh direct sunlight. Next Erik will teach you how to introduce strobe lights into a scene for maximum creativity and control. He will further explain the thought process behind selecting a location and setting up the perfect portrait. Then with the help of a beautiful model you'll get to jump in and photograph too. You'll leave this workshop inspired to get outside to shoot more often, with tips and tricks to knock that next shoot out of the park.

The production value of this workshop is equal to that of a full commerical photoshoot, and it will show in your final photos. We've rented out the Lido Beach Resort on Sarasota Beach, hired mulitple professional models to get you a variety of looks and tons of shooting time, and Erik will be supplying the bestlighting gear in the business.
