Announcing : The Workshop 08.04.09


**UPDATE: The Workshop is now sold out. I can’t wait to meet the attendees as I know we’ll have a blast! To sign up for the waiting list, Click Here to complete the form**

To be totally honest, I wasn’t expecting the total wave of support and encouragement in regard to The Workshop. I’ve hosted two photography workshops here in Orange County and I’ve walked away a better photographer because of the many people I’ve encountered, but–more importantly–a better person. I’ve had a total blast teaching, learning, and getting to know my peers that I’m honored to invite you to join me at the next installment of The Workshop.

I’m stoked to announce the next workshop will be Tuesday, August 4, 2009, and will be the last one in Orange County for the year. For more information and registration, click here for the 411. To those of you who have subscribed to my newsletter, I tried sending an email this morning, but have experienced technical difficulties (I was tempted to hoist my computer out the window!), so please forgive me for not providing advance notice.

Again, to the fabulous people who joined me in the past for The Workshop, thank you. I’ve cultivated a deep love for teaching and I’m blessed to share my experiences with people who love photography as much as I do. Hollllla!

Happy Monday!

    Yay for "The Workshop"! Jasmine, you are a wonderful teacher, friend, and photographer! Above all, God has given you some true gifts and talents to share with others and I am blessed to have been able to attend your first workshop. I think we should have little reunion for the alumni of the J* workshops in the fall! HOLLLAAA! XOXOXO

    hmmm…when you say your "last workshop in OC this year" does this mean that you may be doing one outside of OC? I’m in Toronto but would be willing to go to NYC – or perhaps you’d come to Toronto?!?!

  14. chelsea McGowan

    June 22nd, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    When I called my dear husband screaming that I HAD to go to the OC for this workshop, he reminded me that we’d be in Vegas. Darn the luck.

    But wherever else in the world you go, I will definitely try to hit the next one. And, not that I’m biased or anything, but we’d LOVE to host you in the Dallas area! 😉

    June 22nd, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    June 22nd, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    OOO I so want to do one of your workshops and hopefully one of these times I’ll be able to afford to. In the meantime, if you ever want to do a workshop here in T.O. I would definitely host it for ya.

    Do you think that you might ever come to New Orleans to teach a workshop? We have a fabulous city full of charming buildings and dreamy backdrops full of moss covered oaks hundreds of years old. To see a sample of a pristine setting please see my friend Amee’s blog and my niece’s pictures (Orissa). To see a sample of our beautiful landscape and my gorgeous niece go to ameesorensen,

    Oh, we also have these really cool cemetaries which are all above ground due to the fact that New Orleans is 30 feet below see level. So this is my official invitation to invite you to the "City That Care Forgot" and see some of your fans from the south!

  43. Kim

    June 23rd, 2009 at 5:45 am

    I am bummed, never got the e-mail about the next workshop, a fellow photographer e-mailed me and she gets to go. Maybe next time.

  45. Jas

    June 23rd, 2009 at 9:20 am

    One of the times I wished I lived in OC! A question for your FAQ’s: How do you ask your clients to pose? I saw your last pic and am wondering if you just show it to them all the time or do you have like a pose book or some pics they can copy?

  46. Anouschka

    June 23rd, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Sold out already, wow, what a bummer….

  47. Siegrid

  48. Nicola Hyde

    June 23rd, 2009 at 1:56 pm

  51. Amanda

    June 23rd, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    DANG IT! Stupid e-mail blast. I was totally waiting for you to announce the next one. I guess that’s what I get for only checking your blog in the mornings. Maybe next time…

    One of these days, when I feel my own photography skills are good enough and I can learn the most from you, I will fly cross country to attend your class. I love your photography and, lest I be shunned for the photo-blasphemy, I think I even like your writing more! 😀

    Im waiting for your workshop on LIFE 😉 . You write it , I think it, and apply it to my life. Your right on, and I’m thankful to your friends that help you get on that "right" track. Life is short and it’s so easy to get swept up in this cyber world. There’s never enough time to edit/market/and improve your business. Reality check to what’s impt. Thanks J*

    Wish I could have made it- but hopefully can help save some $$$…my last trip to LA I used to book the hotel (Irvine Doubletree $50/night) and rental car (LAX $15/day)- I am hooked on it now for traveling!

    I adore your work and read your blog regularly. Recently, one of your photos caught my eye and I have been obsessed with it ever since! Specifically, the white flower the model is wearing in your 6.22.09 blog in regard to your workshop. I have been looking for a similar flower for over a year. Any suggestions on wear to find one?

    Great. Some really inspirational stuff, and very relaxed poses.

    I’ll give some of this a try on some of my wedding photography in Edinburgh
