Join award-winning international wedding and editorial photographer, Rebecca Yale for a brand new live shooting demonstration course! Rebecca will be photographing an editorial shoot featuring a reception table, flat lay details, wedding cake, cocktail station and a real couple modeling as bride and groom. Rebecca will teach her approach to shooting each of these elements explaining her thought process and technique as she shoots. The course will go over shooting for your client and for publication with hands on demonstrations of how to optimize the details for the best image through the lens. One of Rebecca's real 2018 bride and groom's will be modeling and Rebecca will do a live posing demonstration as we go in depth on how she art directs to put her clients at ease to create beautiful and candid portraiture.
The course will be a mix of live demos and lecture and will be a non-shooting course for attendees.

The idea behind this styled shoot demo course is to create a different kind of learning experience that combines lecture and live demonstration. So often styled shoot workshops become a frenzied experience with a focus on getting the shot for you portfolio rather than truly learning new techniques. So often when I ask photographers why they shot something in a certain way the response is- I never thought about it shooting it differently, or I don’t know how to shoot it differently. This is a cycle I hope to break, by teaching the building blocks of photography that I learned during my time at photography school at NYU, combined with the experience I’ve obtained on the job at weddings. Things like how to manipulate light- both natural and artificial, how to pose couples and art direct a scene. How to use the basic elements of composition to make beautiful flat lays with ease and how to create a shot list for publications and manipulate the wedding day details to create optimum images for publications, while still staying true to the authenticity of the day.
This course was designed and priced to be accessible to students of all levels. I believe education should have a high ROI. Every dollar invested in education should come back to you many times over as you build your business. That is why I have spent years crafting each and every e-course or in person course that I teach to make sure that my students walk away with a new foundation of skills. I know workshops with styled shoots that you partake in can be tempting to build your portfolio and this one doesn’t include any hands on shooting, but it will teach you the skills necessary to turn every single wedding or shoot into a portfolio-worthy work of art. So often I hear photographers complain that they created great images at a shoot out, but didn’t actually learn how to pose, how to art direct, how to light. So I wanted to take out the shooting portion and instead focus on demonstrating these basic and advanced skills. I will show hands on demonstrations and explain my thought process behind every decision I make before I click the shutter. My intention is not for you to learn to mimic my voice, but to teach you how to find your own and execute it with precision.
