2013 US Workshop Dates
San Diego Workshops | April 10th-11th and April 13th-14th
Learn | This is your opportunity to finally learn from the best newborn photographers in the industry. During the two day Baby as Art Workshops students will learn everything from the basics of proper lighting to the complex processes of safely posing newborns. Students will have the opportunity to observe Carrie and Brittany work through every step of artistic creation; from the initial drafting of new and original Baby as Art ideas to the final finishing touches in photoshop. The learning doesn't stop there though. Attendees will get an in-depth insight on the business processes that have brought Baby as Art's success in the highly competitive portrait photography industry. Workshop attendees are invited to learn through the dynamic pair who have been defined by the children's photography community as trend setters and "THE definitive modern baby photographers" -Stephanie Beatty.
2013 San Diego Two Day Workshop | The cost of the two day Baby as Art workshop is $2,700 USD. Tuition includes two days of instruction by Carrie Sandoval and Brittany Woodall. Also included is a beautifully designed workbook that includes the workshop in cliff-notes style and a complete collection of some of Carrie and Brittany's most notable work. In addition to the workbook, students will also receive the Baby as Art NEST™, which is an integral component to their set-up staging. Tuition is due within 48 business hours of reservation and is non-refundable. There is a limited seating of 12 students per workshop session.
Itinerary | The two-day class begins with a meet and greet at 9:30 with official instruction beginning at 10:00. During the first day of instruction students will have the opportunity to observe the Baby as Art team critiquing their own early work, posing and explaining their signature set-ups. Day one curriculum will also cover a small intro into the distinct black and white conversion processing techniques that Carrie and Brittany are so well known for. The first day's instruction will end at 5:00. Class will resume on the following day at 9:30 and will cover further posing instruction with newborn models, continued work in photoshop, a question and answer session, a business explanation session and finally a portfolio review for each student. Students will be invited to take pictures and video of not only the set-up and posing processes, but students are also encouraged to participate by taking their own pictures of the babies in each set up. Class ends on the second day at 5:00pm. To avoid missing any important information at the end of class, students are encouraged to book their returning flights no earlier than 9 pm on the second day. Baby as Art takes advantage of every moment of class time. The workshops always go non-stop with very little down-time. A continental breakfast, lunch and snacks will be served to students both days.
Suggestions | The Baby as Art Workshop curriculum will cover advanced exposure techniques, which require a moderate understanding of manual exposure. It is recommended that the student have a 50mm prime lens as this is the lens that will be used primarily during instruction. Students should also bring up to five 8x10 or 8x12 prints for the portfolio review segment.
