The 3 P's Workshop
Posing, Pricing, Portfolio
At Grand Rapids Art Museum
(Including 3 Styled Shoots!)
Stephanie, teaming up with her business coach James Onieal, has spent months breaking Posing and Pricing down to their core fundamentals to present them in an easy to understand, practical manner in this Wedding Photography Workshop in Grand Rapids, MI. These two courses will be broken down into comprehensive modules, complete with worksheets and notetaking guides, so students have the tools they need to make practical changes once this Photography Workshop is complete. To top things off, Stephanie has designed a one of a kind Styled Shoot at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, so each photographer can practice the skills they’ve learned and solidify their techniques. The Styled Shoot is an exclusive offer limited to 15 photographers to ensure everyone gets the exact shots they need for their Wedding Portfolios. Afterwards, Stephanie and James will be joining the group for dinner locally to continue the fun and learning.
What Does The Workshop Include?
1 Full Day of Education: with Wedding Photography expert, Stephanie Parshall and Small Business Mentor, focused on Creative Entrepreneurs, James Onieal, as well as portfolio building through 3 set-ups of wedding inspired Styled Shoots at The Grand Rapids Art Museum
Posing Practical Application: You will learn Stephanie’s four core-poses, why they are unique to her and how to create your own all while learning the techniques for dealing with difficult photo clients, tips and tricks for how to direct your clients for natural-looking posing, and the importance of time and how to use it wisely to get your clients to love your photographs.
Pricing Worksheet: James will be teaching you the fundamentals of how, where, and why you need to start knowing your numbers, your value, and how to put all that information together to present it to potential clients. You’ll also get an in-depth look at how to price yourself and when to raise your prices in the future. James will be providing you the exact worksheet he has used to help over 50 photographers and 100 other creative entrepreneurs to turn their dream into real businesses that are sustainable and profitable.

One-on-one Time with Each Set of Models: This is the most important part of this workshop and why Stephanie and James are only accepting 15 photographers.
