The Business Side of Tamara Lackey
Mia McCormick catches up with Tamara Lackey on location for an inspiring conversation about Tamara's journey to becoming a successful portrait photographer. Their conversation begins with a look back at how Tamara got started in photography and we quickly gain some insight into how she turned that passion into a sustainable business. Over the course of an hour Tamara shares her thoughts and experiences on everything from the choices she made early on to develop foundational principles that continue to guide her business decisions into the future, to the importance of developing a work-life balance that keeps you excited about getting up and facing the world each day.

In-Depth Workshops with Frank Doorhof
As mentioned a few weeks ago, Frank Doorhof will be hosting a workshop in New York City August 29-31 at a great location that will combine studio work, shooting with natural light, working with models, and post processing. But now the price of the workshop is just $1250 for three days of great instruction and experience!

The group is limited so there is a lot of time for personal attention. This will be a learning frenzy with loads of tips and tricks on lighting, coaching the models, getting the right expression, natural light, strobes, mixing light sources, telling a story, building a brand, retouching and much much more.

If you want more info or to register, click here to book your ticket for the workshop you don't want to miss!

Frank will also be hosting two-day workshop in the Netherlands August 1-2 where he'll cover topics that you struggle with most, portfolio reviews, shooting on location with natural light and strobes, and retouching techniques. For more info on that workshop, click right here!
