The Workshop with Michael Anthony - Los Angeles - February 4th and 5th, 2019

Day 1

Lighting and Posing

In this intensive workshop, we will be covering our foundations for lighting our subjects both creatively, and for standard portraits.  We will walk you through the entire wedding day from start to finish, how we go about lighting details, tough ceremonies, and our entire reception lighting system.  We will show you how to use multi light setups during creatives in order to get the best possible results from your shoots and the most out of your post production.  I am going to show you lights for all different budgets as well.

We are also going to go over our system for posing, how to take the foundations and create poses from scratch out of them to fit any different combinations of body types.  We will go over motion posing to get any couple comfortable.

Day 2

Post Production

For the first time ever, we are going to break down our editing process for you using our step by step guide for creating our signature look in post production.  We will show you how we create our looks from a RAW file using Lightroom and Photoshop.  We will also walk you through workflow best practices whether you are outsourcing or editing yourself.

Finally, I will show you how to create emotional album designs to help you sell more spreads and create better stories for your clients.

Business and Marketing

Our wedding business went from 7 weddings in 2012 to 130 in 2017.  We did this without being added to a single vendor list or by relying off vendor referrals.  I will show you step by step how we created a system that allows our clients to refer us, and how we stay relevant in front of clients day by day.  I will also show you how we conduct new client consultations and how we use drip marketing to make the best opportunities of new leads.

Yes, we are working right now to compile a list of partner hotels for you to book accommodations?

Will the workshop be more than 10 people?

No, this is our first run, so we will be limiting the amount of people attending to ensure quality for all the students.
