This past weekend, I traveled back to NC to attend Blair Phillips Photography‘s Break the Mold Workshop. I went with one main goal and that was to learn how to better light outside images to be able to offer more variety to my high school seniors for their sessions. I think I succeeded.
Blair and his team are amazing. Blair is the crazy mastermind behind the camera. His personality is infectious and his style is unconventional but will blow you away. Suzanne, his beautiful wife, is the brains (no offense, Blair! ha!) behind the business. She handles all the editing, designs, and blinging out all the canvases. Adam is the main social media man, and in charge of crazy-awesome video marketing. Shana handles client communication, and is the cherry on top.
Upon walking in his breathtaking studio, I automatically felt right at home. They catered to our every need, were very organized, and answered any questions we through at them. They were very open about every aspect of their business, gave honest reviews of vendors, and earned a great deal of my respect for being able to achieve such success in this ruthless business after starting with nothing but a dream.
I have had the chance to play around with Ring Lights before and will be offering this look to my seniors this year. So excited to be the first in the area to offer this look, so if you’re wanting something different to add to your session, Real Promises Photography is your place to go!
One of my favorite sessions of the two day workshop was our Glam Senior Session! Check out Brielle’s tutu, and rocker makeup! Not too shabby for mid-day shooting, too! Those are some harsh conditions to shoot in so being able to achieve this rich color straight out of camera!
I also loved this one in black and white, too!
If you are looking for a workshop to get a better understanding at studio lighting, lighting in outdoor harsh situations, or marketing, Suzy’s Photoshop tips, and seeing how to run a successful studio, this workshop would be the perfect option. It comes highly recommended!
