Photography Workshops

I have never been that classroom instructor kind of guy. But, I do love to share my experience. During the photoshoot, we will be discussing every aspect of a photoshoot. You can expect to be shooting a quality model with professional hair and makeup. Themes will consist of creative portraiture, fashion, mood, beauty and artistic nude (depending on the model). You will learn how I light my subjects, what modifiers and other gear I use and camera/flash settings. You will see how I direct the model to get ‘that look’ I want. I’ll shoot for a bit and then make suggestions as you shoot. Also included is a follow-up session on zoom to observe my workflow as I edit one of the images from the shoot. The workshop Fees are $250. Or if you want to share the spot with another photographer it would be $190 each, or with two other photographers for $150 each. When you book, I will give you dates and model names for you to select your date. The full amount of the fee is collected at the time of booking. To schedule click the "Book a Session" button lower right of this page.


Photography talk with Colby

As part of my ongoing one-on-one photographer training, I am now offering “Photographer Talk with Colby” via zoom. We’ll talk about whatever is on your mind, or questions you would like to ask. Here are some example topics:

How did you light your subject in your “ballet” series?
What gear do you use and why?
How do I get models to shoot with me?
Where do you get your backgrounds?
What camera settings do you use in studio?
How do you mix sunlight with flash?
What are blend modes in photoshop and how do you use them?Demonstrate dodge and burn
How do I add a background to my photos in photoshop

The sky's the limit. We will have a casual conversation about whatever you would like to talk about. No topic is off the table and experience level is beginner to experienced. I won’t have answers for everything, but we’ll do our best. Each session is one hour and the fee is only $55 (via Venmo or PayPal). Let’s schedule and talk some photography.

HEY PHOTOGRAPHERS....Ever notice how most photographs start to look the same after a while? I mean, how many photos of models have you seen?  How many butterflies or flowers?  How many interchangeable landscapes?  How many near-identical "street photos"? With so many photographers out there, and with great cameras and editing software becoming more and more popular, the whole field of photography sometimes feels as if it's becoming repetitive in the extreme. 

Which is why I'm so excited to FINALLY be able to recommend something different. Something that can make your photography stand out. And even make you feel more excited about being a photographer than ever. It sure did for me and changed by editing style and photographs forever. I cannot recommend this enough.

This changes everything.
