SHAMAYIM Photography Workshops

"The most difficult thing for me, when I was an aspiring photographer, was building my portfolio with strong professional models and learning the basics of studio production. With my workshops I take away a lot of that burden from the photographers by placing them in actual productions right along side me, with industry level equipment that I actually use, with models that I actually utilize for my own projects. I'm a visual artist, so reading "how-to-manuals" didn't appease to me. I learned from hands on experience of trial and error and that's how I set up my workshops. I want each photographer to leave my workshops with strong images that they can take out into the world and be proud of. I want photographers to leave my workshop feeling that they just leveled up."
