London J* Workshop


I’m so incredibly excited to announce I’ll be hosting a workshop in London this summer. Should’ve I ended that last sentence with a thousand exclamation marks? Because, really, I’m THAT excited. So here it goes: !!!!!!!!!!! We’ve been waiting for the right moment to jump across the pond so when the ever amazing Kat Williams of Rock N Roll Bride emailed out of the blue and asked to help me put it together, I knew the stars aligned. We have a fabulous day planned at One Marylebone and I am incredibly excited to join forces with such an amazing team on Wednesday, July 20, 2011!

The workshop will be a full day of branding, specifically focused on the Eight Components of Creating a Brand:
1. Creating a logo to reflect YOU.
2. Selective clientele.
3. Client care.
4. Branding correspondence.
5. Branding your online presence.
6. Branding photos.
7. Networking your brand.
8. Branding post processing.

While having discussed these topics before online, I’ll goes into depth about personal decisions I made to cultivate and foster my growing business. The class will be limited to 20 students for individualized attention and direct accessibility to both myself and JD to answer your questions (and, no, nothing is off-limits…so ask away!). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided, so be sure to bring your appetite along with your camera gear because a professionally styled bridal shoot by Wedding Magazine is included in the course. I will demonstrate my natural posing techniques and natural lighting tips, as well as give access to students to photograph the models for personal portfolios.

More than anything, this workshop aims to provide a jumpstart for your photography career and refine the decisions you make as a business person. To secure a seat and/or get more information, feel free to check out Hip hip cheerio!

    "There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit
    and the vermin of the world inhabit it
    and its morals aren’t worth what a pig can spit
    and it goes by the name of London…"

    Did you see the cartoon β€œDespicable Meβ€œ? Well, there is a little girl called Agnes in that cartoon that simply loooves unicorns and there is a scene where she sees one and melts yelling β€œ"It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!"
    When I read this post I was like Agnes – running to my husband and yelling that Jasmin Star is coming and I wanna go… He said: no problem – when is it? And then I realised it’s not possible for me to attend your workshop (we are at Cuba at that time) – I felt like a kid whose ice-cream has been taken away… Hope this is not your only trip/workshop in Europe πŸ™‚

    I LOVE London. Lived there for a year during my sophomore year at Pepperdine. You are going to have such a great time. If only all the places that you visit are pet friendly, you can bring Polo with you! I bet he’ll be so happy!
