Alicia D’Amico of Pure Emotions Photography is offering a unique experience in Tampa, Florida from November 21st through November 23rd of 2015. In this interactive, hands on workshop, Alicia will take her students through a journey of self discovery and explore the limitless possibilities of creating unique art that will set you apart from others in your area. Alicia will connect the dots from marketing yourself to building unique concepts to selling the client on your vision and making it their vision as well.

– Alicia will do a portfolio review and assessment of each student before the workshop and discuss the strengths/ weaknesses she sees in your portfolio if you elect to participate in this part. (Not required)
AND so much more!!!
Who is this workshop good for?
This workshop is good for anyone who has a basic understanding of how to use their camera and wants to learn how to take their business to the next level or even propel it off the ground. We will cover so many topics that can help anyone from a beginner to a more experienced photographer.
What should I bring with me?
Gear – What you bring is up to you and the experience you want to have. Since the majority of this workshop will be very hands on, we suggest you bring a camera and a couple of lenses if you have them. This way you can use your own equipment to photograph the models.
Light – We will be doing some night time shooting during one of the evenings and if you have external flashes, I suggest you bring them. If you don’t have external flashes, then you can borrow mine if you shoot Canon. If you don’t shoot Canon and don’t have external flashes, then you can use my camera and flashes when it’s your turn just to get a feel for it and still be able to participate!
Other stuff – You may want to bring your laptop if you have one and memory card reader (and memory cards to shoot on.) This way you can back up your images and look at them throughout the course. This is not a requirement but is recommended if you want.
Notebook and pen to take notes.
Okay, I am interested! How much is this going to cost and how do I sign up?
