Our next workshop is on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, MN!

We are changing up a few things this year. First is the location. We decided to have the workshop on the shores of Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. If you are not familiar with the location, it is a short drive from Minneapolis. 

Why Lake Minnetonka? Well, we thought we would do something different and get away from the west coast. We also wanted a location we could go to in the summer that wouldn't be too hot. And maybe we would try photographing some dogs in the water. Doesn't that sound like fun??

We also moved the date because we thought summer might be an easier time for some people, and what a great time of year to be on a lake!

We have also changed up a couple of other things. Each evening we will have Happy Hour where the class can just rest and relax and decompress from the day's learning. It's a time for us to get to know each other better. We are also going to have Friday afternoon off, so you can give your brain a rest. You can do a little sight seeing, catch some rays, catch up on class work, or take a nap.

 Some things haven't changed. We will be spending a day in the studio working with studio lights. You will get to see how Kim and Margaret do their studio lighting and then try your hand at doing your own lighting. We will also be spending time working with balancing ambient light with flash on location. You won't just be watching, you will be doing it too!

Add to that working with dogs, posing dogs, posing dogs with people, working with clients, in person sales, marketing, how to stand out in your market, being competitive, the business of pet photography, and so much more! See what people say about our workshops! 

Check it out and sign up before the class is full!

 Kim Hartz and Margaret Bryant believe in offering the best in Dog Photography workshop experiences. Both are working dog photographers who have been in the business for many years. Because they are actively working in the business, they usually only offer one workshop per year. Workshops are limited to 9 people so each may receive individualized attention. Students learn by doing, not by copying. Students start by thoroughly understanding the concepts and then practice doing their own lighting, handling, posing and photography. In the business arena, special emphasis is given to "in person sales". In the Photoshop arena, special emphasis is given to retouching as it applies specifically to dogs. All aspects of photographing dogs and running a photography business are covered.
