Note from hailey
With this Workshop I want you to think of what makes you an artist? What inspired you to be the artist you are? Were you inspired by paintings, books, the ocean, outdoors, music, spoken word, God, your children, other photographers? For example, my biggest influence is music. I play it when I am brainstorming ideas, blast it on my way to a session, jam out during a shoot, and reflect on my way back with another playlist. So that is why, I am bringing music to this Reverie Workshop. Meet us as the sun sets over our Estate with the sound of a local band playing in the common area. Allow your soul to overflow with the joining of other artists with instruments trying to make their place in this crafted world. Allow your mind to take you to a place you think is only a dream…only a reverie. Then watch how we can show you that no dream is unattainable.
Let’s let all the above inspirations come flooding out of you into an artist. There is such a joy for life inside of you, it's the reason why you capture moments, it is innate for you to see the best of the world, people and now yourself.
Our Zion Estate!
Note From Tara
If you struggle with self doubt, if you are plagued by feelings of not being good enough or not knowing your identity in this crazy thing we call the photography world, Reverie is for you. I am going to talk about how to draw inspiration from other photographers without letting comparison paralyze you with feeling of inadequacy or confusion. I'm going to talk about what I call The Art of Being Wrong, and how powerful it can be in your life and work. I am going to talk about how to stop trying to be someone else, and how to create your own style by seeing and understanding colors, tones, and light like an artist. We all get bogged down in the day to day, and in the struggle to make something financially sustainable out of our photography. In doing so, we often forget our "why", and our creativity dries up, photography becomes just a "job", and we start feeling the dreaded burnout. At Reverie, we are going to discover how feeding into your whole person will flow into your work so that you feel like an artist again.
The Workshop Details
The first night will be a time of refreshing, connecting, and resetting (and if you wish, a few glasses of wine or cocktails!) with the bonding of souls and sounds.
The first full day will consist of a day of teaching, a styled session and some exploring with Hailey. She will show you what goes into creating her visions, helping her client see her vision to become her vision all while creating the picture they never knew they wanted… The surrounding area is filled with caves, hieroglyphics and outlooks, be prepared to travel and hike into a world wonder- using every bit of natural artistry to guide us..
On the second full day, Tara will take the lead on another styled session and share her journey, her impeccable way of photographing, and what has influenced her to be the artist she is. Her depth is so infectious; you will want to hear more of her explanations and not want it to end.
During our non-shooting time together, there will be portfolio reviews, editing instruction, and round table discussions with Hailey and Tara.
Stay with us in Zion National Park and have all meals prepared for you all while fueling your soul. The Estate you will be staying at was created originally for musicians to come to to compose, writers to write, painters to paint..it is an artist retreat.
This Workshop is for all levels of photographers, we will tell you our camera settings while shooting if you need assistance, walk you through our business side, editing techniques, marketing strategies and session styling.
