Impromptu Decision to do a Workshop
On saturday I created an impromptu workshop on How to find locations and use them.
The reason was because an Intern just booked 2 weddings and had to do engagements and needed place ideas.
I said I had a free Saturday so why not make an event of it.
No one really knew about the workshop because it was immediatly full and therefore I didn’t announce it.
I opened it to the students of JarvieU and they all came.
We invited a few models to join us as well.
We didn’t want a huge caravan of cars… just 2 maybe 3.
Did it work?
I hadn’t done an event like this before so it was nice getting an idea of how it worked.
In short…. It was amazing!
Everyone seemed to really enjoy all the information that was shared on locations.
Of course other things were discussed and learned as well.
We even took note of all the spots we stopped at.
It was a fun experience because we had no pre-objective. We were out driving around SLC, just finding new spots.
We even stopped at spots which some attendees probably wondered what in the world we were doing there. And yet we ended up with some of the best shots of the day.
Hopefully beyond finding some new spots they learned to utilize well any location they happen to be at… and are able to see and find spots more easily.
We also had an awesome lunch and time to chat. (Red Iguana is Amazing)
I have another free saturday coming up and I know the students are really interested.
I also am looking at getting a new Projector for the house and JarvieU events.
So why not?
Another Workshop this Saturday?
I can’t take many people and I don’t feel I need to charge a regular workshop rate, specially since it’s only one aspect.
So at a fraction of the cost for a full day event. $200
I’ll take about 4 people. JarvieU students are still invited of course but they all know they’ll be kicking it in a separate car following us along.
So if you’re interested let me know.
If there are at least 3 people I’ll do it.
I might continue to do it in the future… but who knows if it’ll be the same cost. Specially when spring/summer comes and my weekends get much more busy with real paying jobs.
We start early and we go until people need to go.
Last time it was 9am until 3:30pm
