Join us in Los Angeles for a portfolio building experience where you will Unlock the power of strobes, master shooting in studio and create your best work yet.
BUT IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH...
➝ Lack of access to proper resources such as lighting equipment and gear.
➝ Losing creative control of lighting in your images because you are always relying on natural light.
➝ Feel overwhelmed and lost at how to plan a high-production value shoot.
➝ Feel intimidated by studio lighting and strobes and struggle to feel confident on set.
➝ Unsure of how to plan a shoot that will actually attract high value, commercial clients.
THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU.
Relying solely on natural light could be holding you back from reaching the commercial & editorial clients you REALLY dream of working with. Commercial and High Fashion clients expect you to be able to light in any weather AND keep the same lighting throughout the day-- something that is impossible to do with the everchanging sun.
Join us for a full day of immersive learning, hands-on practice, and creative exploration with studio lighting and strobes. Whether you're a beginner or intermediate photographer, this workshop is designed to help you elevate your portfolio with studio lighting!
Over a $20,000 production value!!
Take a glimpse at what past photographers have created at Portfolio Building Day and get inspired for the photos you'll take!
My passion for photography has taken me all over the world and turned into a six figure business that has given me the creative freedom to live the life I truly desire. I spent YEARS bootstrapping my business and finding my way through the commercial industry so you don't have to. So what is the key? I knew that building my portfolio was crucial to working with my dream clients.
I used to be a tried and true natural light girlie, until I realized it was holding me back. Mastering strobes and shooting in studio unlocked my full potential as an artist, allowed me to raise my rates and start working with my dream brands! Through this portfolio building experience, you will be equipped with all the tools to start shooting confidently with strobes NOW.

Whether you came to the first event or you're an OG, you will leave with a new level of confidence as a photographer and fresh work to share.
Yes! This event is perfect for all levels, from beginner to intermediate, as we will be covering the foundations of shooting with strobes and studio lighting.
Of course! If you are looking to expand your creativity, network with other photographers and start shooting with strobes in any capacity, this will be the perfect event for you to build your portfolio.
Due to the large production costs and limited spots at this event, no refunds will be available after purchasing. If you have any concerns, please contact email@example.com.
All you need to bring to this event is your camera fully charged, SD cards and lens of your choice. and a pen and paper for notes. I recommend bringing a zoom lens option (24-70mm is my personal fav!) and a prime lens so you can grab lots of different angles easily.
The studio location is in DTLA, so I would recommend staying near and then ubering to the event. There will also be lot parking walking distance from the location. In the community group, you will be able to coordinate and share accommodations with fellow photographers. We will also have a recommended hotel list for you inside the Resource Library to make planning your travel a breeze.
