I am SO excited to announce this!!
I have had countless emails sent to my inbox over the last couple of years asking when or if I would ever conduct a workshop, and as much as I LOVE teaching, the last couple of years have just been crazy. Like C.R.A.Z.Y. So much so that there really hasn't been a slice of time long enough for me to actually sit down and write the syllabus and plan the workshop that I've really wanted to launch :)
Well, thanks to a couple of wonderful enthusiastic individuals, who asked and then invited me over, I am SOOOO thrilled to be able to say the very first official JSP workshop will finally be launching in Singapore this coming January 28th-30th, 2011.
That's right, it is a 3-day intensive (and I mean INTENSIVE!!) workshop where we will be covering aspects of shooting/posing/lighting, workflow/editing, and business/branding. I am not joking when I say this will be a very packed 3 days - the syllabus is very full, with ALOT of information to take in, and then apply and execute, so expect your brain to be hurting a little by the end of it all :)
I have to admit, I am a little scared making this announcement! I hope there are a bunch of you out there who wouldn't mind hanging with me in the city of Singapore for 3 days talking photography jargon, food, and my occasional ramble about music in my Australian accent :P It would be lovely to meet and make friends with a bunch of you out there in this cool city! :D
Anyhow, here are the workshop details! :D
Date: 28th - 30th January, 2011 (9AM - 5PM each day)

- $700USD (early bird rate, until 10th November 2010)
- $800USD (normal rate, from 11th November 2010)
So, what is the deal with this workshop?
I have honestly, always always believed that the success of a photography business rides on how well a photographer does two things: (1) produce their art, and (2) run their business. My philosophy has followed the strength of that marriage and this workshop is about those two very things. We are going to spend 3 very intense days working from the inside-out. Working out who you are as a photographer and your style, and helping you carry that through to your photos as well as your business and brand. Sounds scary? It is! But that is the fun of it - Learning to be a better photographer AND a better entrepreneur! :) Our aim from the workshop is to help you walk away with the skills and confidence to shoot better photos that you love (that is covering use of posing, light, composition and post processing), and book clients that love the photos that you shoot! :) Win-win! :) Time will also be spent learning about how I work with my clients from the moment I meet them, to the shoot, to the finished product, as well as opportunity for 1 on 1 time with me for questions and feedback/critique :)
Who is this workshop for?
Anyone who loves photography and their craft, and is wanting to develop their style and business.
The Itinerary For the 3 days:
Day 1 - All about style (yours and Jenny's!). Discovering and developing your own style of photography and hearing about how Jenny molded hers. The Class will ajourn outside for a portion of the day to watch how jenny shoots, engages with her subjects and poses them, and work with light to create her shots. Time will also be spent on this day working on editing and processing photos to give your photos that finished look, as well as plenty of opportunity for Q&A throughout.
Day 2 - Shooting/Assignment day for all participants with real life couples! (this is a surprise! Be prepared to be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zones! :D )
Day 3 - The day will be split into two. One part of the day will be spent going over and critiquing photos from day two on aspects of posing, use of light, composition and style. The other part of the day will be spent learning valuable branding and marketing techniques that will help bring you in touch with the right clientèle, bring you business and strengthen your consultation/sales confidence :)
Please note that this is a highly practical 3-day workshop so be prepared to do ALOT of work!! There will also be plenty of opportunities allocated on each day for Q&A, as well as 1 on 1 time with Jenny at one point of the workshop :)
I'm ready! How do I sign up??
