A big hi and hello to all of you out there! Thank you for stopping by Jenny Sun Photography's blog! This is my brand new blog space! So please make yourself at home, and have a good browse around. There is plenty more to come so check back often :) Just in case any of you are wondering who on earth I am, my name is Jenny Sun. I own a photography company that spans across Australia and Malaysia, particularly in the Sydney and Kuala Lumpur regions respectively. Though I'm not restricted to those areas! :) I love photographing just about anything under the sun, but my particular passion is for weddings and portraits - I seriously LOVE people, their stories, the beautiful relationships formed, and the tales that are told when that shutter goes off!

This blog is my personal and visual journey along this path of photography. Please hop on board the ride, comment along the way (I shamelessly love comments!), and lets see where the wind takes us :)

Jenny Sun Photography Workshop 2011: KL

I'm really thrilled to be able to announce that our second Jenny Sun Photography Workshop is launching today! It will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this time around over 3-5 August 2011. The last one was held in Singapore earlier this year in January, and it was a completely full class with alot of great feedback. If you want to read about what some of the participants of the last workshop said about it, have a look here:

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 :) The participants of the last workshop in Singapore all mentioned that they likened the workshop to a bootcamp - that is how intense it is. Be prepared to be pushed, to do alot of hard work, and to be challenged.

Just like the last one, I'm kind of biting my nails as I write this announcement - I'm hoping there will be a group of you cool people to hang out with in Kuala Lumpur. I know the food is amazing in your city, so I'm excited to meet you guys and make friends with you at the workshop! :D The last workshop sold out in less than a week, so do get in early to get your place and also take advantage of the early bird rate we have!

Anyhow, here are the workshop details! :D

Date: 3-5 August, 2011 (9AM - 5PM each day)

Where: The Gardens Hotel, Mid Valley (This is RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the awesome Midvalley Megamall Shops :D That means you have direct access to the train, various options for accommodation if you are coming from out of town, shopping, and lots of food :D )

Capacity: Limited to 20 people. First come first served basis.

- $750AUD/ RM2300 (early bird rate, until 23rd May 2011) - If you need more time to get your leave approved, please email us immediately!!
- $850AUD/ RM2600 (normal rate, from 24rd May 2011)

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. This workshop will be a best fit for amateurs wanting to start a business/gain regular paid work, or photographers who are wanting to become full timers. The workshop will also suit photographers who are already running their business and want to improve and fine tune/update/change their brand or clientele. While we will be talking about how to see and use light, it is also best that you have a good grasp of manual exposure before coming into the workshop as we will not be teaching basics of shutterspeed, aperture, and ISO during the 3 days.

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. We will also be covering and teaching how to pose/engage with your clients, composition, how to see light, wedding day run through, how to get a maximum number of shots within a small space or short period of time, workflow/editing, elements of business and branding will start today and continue on day 3, and Q&A session.
Day 2 - Demonstration shoot in the morning (to see how Jenny shoots), followed by a shooting/Assignment day for all participants (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 :) If you have prior and current marketing material, that is encouraged to be brought to the workshop as well for critique and feedback.

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 :)
