2-Day Landscape Workshops by Jason Lanier
Need some time alone with a pro to take your photography to a whole new level? Want to ask questions, but not in front of other people? Want a critique of your work so you can get immediate feedback to help you improve your work?Jason's One-on-One Sessions are the best because you get 2 HOURS of his undivided attention. Here's the breakdown:*15-minute review of your images at the start of the shoot so Jason can see what you need.*90-minute shoot with a model (or landscapes if that is your choice). This is a real shoot, so you will get REAL results.*15-minute wrap up- ask any remaining questions you have, review of the shoot, any last minute essential tips you need.
WHO SHOULD DO A 1 ON 1 SESSION:
From beginners to pros this session can either start you on your photography journey or help you get over the hump with something you are struggling with. These sessions are customized to your needs so you get precisely the help you need.
All costs for travel, location fees, and the fee for the model. Tuition does not include any expenses for food, snacks, or supplies.
WHAT TO BRING:
*Comfortable Clothing and footwear
*All camera gear including tripod/monopod
*User's manual for your camera
*Money for lunch/snacks (both days)
*Bug repellent or sunscreen depending on the time of the year.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR 1 ON 1 SESSION:
Wear correct clothing depending on the climate during the time of the workshop you are attending. If it's cold outside plan on it being a little colder wherever we shoot. If it's hot outside plan on it being a little hotter wherever we shoot. You might also want to bring a few extra pieces of clothing including sandals or something that may walk through shallow water or an extra pair of socks. Bring plenty of batteries and all lenses, external flashes, and camera bodies you own. Note: You must have a DSLR prior to the workshop to get the most out of the experience. I do recommend however that you don't buy any other equipment prior to the workshop. Most attendees use some of the time during their 1 on 1 session to help me answer the questions they have regarding gear they should consider purchasing.
I will choose the general area of the location of the shoot prior to our session. Part of the experience of coming to one of my workshops is learning how and why I choose my locations so you can do the same thing on your own. This also allows you the opportunity to see what it's like to be a professional photographer in your pursuit of chasing the light. I will provide you with a location to meet me at for us to carpool together to start the session. Travel time will not be longer than 15-20 minutes and we will use this time to review your portfolio and work so I can understand how I can best help you.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT 1 ON 1's:
*Can I bring my shooting partner/friend to the 1 on 1 session? Yes you can, but each person must pay the registration fee of $225 each. This is a very popular option for people who shoot together. However please understand that this does not double the time we have together. If you choose this option the total time we have together is still 2 hours.
*Can I use my friend/family member as a model for the shoot? Yes you can, however you WILL NOT receive any of the images that I shoot from the session.
*Can I get the images that you (Jason) shoots as a copy? Yes you can, but you will pay the normal price I would charge to one of my clients for the shoot. Some people want to purchase the images from my time with them and that is awesome. However this is not an opportunity to get me to shoot your friends/family members for free while you are receiving training. The fee is for the training, and any images provided from me would be treated at a normal shooting rate. If you'd like to use the opportunity to get trained and get a shoot done by me GREAT! Just let me know prior to the session so we can plan accordingly.
*Do I have to give a copy of the images that I shoot to the model? Yes you do, that is part of the agreement between you and the model for the shoot.
*Do I have to have a model release signed between me and the model for the shoot? Yes you do. You should get that signed between you and the model prior to providing them any images.
*Can I choose the location? I have a place near me that I've always wanted to shoot and would love to get your help shooting there, is that okay? Yes that's fine but it must be approved by me in regards to how far away it is from me. If you choose the location you take responsibility to make all arrangements with the venue (if applicable) for permits and permission to shoot there. You will be responsible for all additional fees that might come as a result of a location that charges a shooting fee.
*What time are the sessions done? I try to schedule the sessions near the best times to shoot which is around sunrise of sunset. If you would like a night-time 1 on 1 session to do some trick photography that is fine as well.
*When are the sessions done? 1 on 1 sessions are completed around the time of a 2-day workshop while I'm in your area. 1 on 1 sessions are provided in Southern California on demand. So if you'd like one in Southern California just let us know!
*When will I know where and when we are going to shoot? When you sign up for your 1 on 1 session you will sign up according to the dates available. Specific times to meet will be determined about 2 weeks prior to the session. A specific location to meet will be determined 1 week prior to the session date. The exact location as to where we are going to shoot will not necessarily be provided until the day of the shoot. Many times I find locations to shoot in once I arrive in an area so the exact location as to where we will shoot may not be determined until once I'm in the area. Don't worry, I always find awesome places to shoot!
*Can I choose what type of 1 on 1 session I'd like to do? Absolutely! That's one of the main benefits to doing a 1 on 1! We can do anything from babies, pregnancy, families, fashion, weddings, portraits, landscapes, etc. You just have to let me know what you'd like to do. Anything that requires additional fees will be your responsibility.
