Q: 'I'm not sure I'm experienced enough to interact with other professionals in the industry yet, are you sure it's for me?'
A: YES!! It is for EVERYONE!! new to the industry...or in the industry for years...this is a place for everyone. I think we all stand to learn a lot from every person in the room!!!
Q: 'I'm shy; I won't know anyone; who will I sit with....'
A: I hear ya! I was like that when I first started going to industry mixers! My husband would drop me off at an industry mixer and have to drive away before I jumped back in the car to leave!! I'm so glad I took that leap, started introducing myself to industry people, and become friends with many of them. This is an open network of professionals who are there to learn with and from each other, and who want everyone in the room to succeed. You will know everyone by the time the workshop is over, and you will have lots of people to sit with and to talk to!!
Q: 'Why do I need to do a workshop about styled shoots??'
A: I have to say, I wish I had something like this to go to before I began doing styled shoots. I started these workshops because I spent many hours a week chatting with people about who to call, who to ask for what, where to go....there were so many people who didn't have any idea where to even start...and I was there once too!!! So, what better way to get all that info...in one place, with lots of networking, lots of pretty things, in an incredible venue, etc.
Q: 'Can't I find out about publications online?'
A: Yes. The technical info is all online. But when you are looking at that info online, and have questions...there is no one to ask in person. We bring the publishing experts right to you. They are there to walk you through the 'how to' and answer all of your questions!!
Q: 'I'm not a photographer, so what do I do when they are shooting the sets?'
A: I understand that! I'm no photographer either!!! There will be lots for you to do. We will also be doing hands on styling with the stylists & florist, and we will have a head shot station set up; also, there is a social media session; and two magazine & online publisher sessions...and of course lots of fun!!!!
I sure hope I answered all the questions you have, but please let me know if you are still wondering about anything! I look forward to 'workshoppin' with y'all!!
