TESTIMONIALS

“Having a mentor session with Jackie really made me feel so confident in my new photography business. Her teaching style is all about real world situations and minimizing technical issues so you can focus on capturing your client's emotional moments. She had an answer for every one of my questions and concerns, and I left our session feeling so energized and excited to get out and shoot!”

“Falling into the world of film photography was purely accidental, and being able to get a mentoring session with Jackie was definitely another accident! I had worked with other photographers in the past and been mentored by couple of them, but being mentored by Jackie was a really awesome experience that I plan to take another 1-hr Skype mentoring session with her soon! 
In order to maximize the learning, I recommend everyone be very honest about your strengths and weaknesses in photography.  Don’t be shy or embarrassed, otherwise you won’t get your money’s worth!  Plus, Jackie doesn’t hold back on what she knows!  She’s logical, detail-oriented on sharing tips and tricks, and provided additional materials that I didn’t think of when I filled out the questionnaire prior to the session.  I’m really glad that I took my time and be very through when I did the questionnaire because it saved a lot of time for both of us during the session since Jackie doesn’t need to assume what I want to improve on and where I’m taking my photography business to.
A big thank you to Jackie! You’ve cleared up quite a bit of misconceptions that I have about this business and what it takes to be a darn good wedding photographer!"

"I won a free giveaway mentorship session with Whiskers and Willow Photography on Instagram. I could not have been more ecstatic! I love Jackie's work and think highly of her style, skill, and quality she provides her Clients. I had a list of questions I wanted to ask her. First of all, it was so easy to talk with Jackie! She answered all my questions with genuine and honest answers that were not only helpful, but very informative! I can't wait to put them into practice in my business. I would highly recommend her mentorships for seasoned film photographers who want to bounce ideas or even a new up and coming film photographer who needs help with the basics. Thank you again Jackie!"

The Wedding Day Workshop was such an amazing experience. Not only did they take the time to answer every question we had about film, business, posing, etc.., but they were also very hands on which helped us while shooting! Beyond that, the shoot they set up for us was absolutely stunning! The images are beyond what I was hoping in order to help really kick start my film portfolio. I would recommend this workshop to anyone that has any questions at all about film photography, meet some amazing photographers and expand your knowledge/portfolio.

WORKSHOP

Our 2018 workshop called The Wedding Day Workshop was a successful one day intensive of teaching and learning.

This workshop is perfect for those who may have started dabbling in film or would like to learn how to shoot film but don't know how to start incorporating it. They are wedding photographers who have mastered digital photography but love the look of film and want to learn more.

We had a small sized group with a beautiful shoot designed by Chloe and Mint, which included a real couple where attendees can practice directing and posing in a variety of ways in a short amount of time. Richard Photo Lab stopped by for a Q&A with all of our attendees. Generous sponsors will be contributing discounts and offers exclusive for workshop attendees including Richard Photo Lab, Film Supply Club, Mastin Labs, and Red Tree Albums.
