How we make you successful

How do they work?

Our group seminars consist of only 5 students at any one time, giving you the opportunity to work on exactly what you want to work on without, long waits explaining details to other students in the group

Seminars are 5 hours long and happen once a month on the last Thursday of every month.
“Why Thursday?”
We are actively working in the wedding industry right now! Most weddings happen on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays. To ensure there is little chance in there being any conflict, we chose Thursdays.

We will shoot on location, locations will vary seminar to seminar and we will show you what to look for in a location and how to get multiple different looks from one area, we will be planning specific seminars for night time shooting, as well as sunrise and sunsets.
