FUSION: THE WORKSHOP will be held in Las Vegas, NV on FEBRUARY 19-22, 2021. Limited space available.
WHAT IS IT?
Join Jenn Lewis, Dan Rowe, and Garon Cooper for three full days of learning and creating during this epic photo, filmmaking, and business workshop and shootout in Vegas. This event will be limited in attendance so that you are able to connect with each of the instructors and gather information you're able to implement in your business right away.
All 3 instructors are high school senior photographers, but the processes they teach in photo, filmmaking, and business can be applied to almost any genre of portraiture.
Dan Rowe will be leading our photography portion of the workshop, and will discuss lighting, posing, his thought process during his shoots, and more. Dan has twice taken 1st place in WPPI's then IPC High School Senior category as well as earning the SYNC Photographer of the Year award. The combination of his skill, knowledge and talent allow him to create amazing images in any situation.
Jenn Lewis will lead our business discussions. She'll spend a portion of the time teaching her in person sales program and how she accomplishes a $4000 average sale in her senior business, and we'll spend the rest of the time round table discussion-style, chatting about whatever is holding you back from your business goals, from sales to senior model programs, to client experience and more. We'll have the opportunity to really dig in deep to the business side of things, and with a small group, you'll get your questions answered!
You'll get to spend time learning epic cinematic filmmaking from Garon Cooper. Y'all, this is a real treat. There are a lot of photographers out there teaching video, but Garon is both a photographer AND filmmaker who will teach you to shoot video like a filmmaker. He knows how to teach photographers because he IS a photographer. He understands how we see things, and he knows what to teach us to set us apart from the other photographers who are shooting video. We'll start the day with instruction on shooting video, then finish the day learning some basic video editing techniques. We'll be using Final Cut Pro, but what you learn about editing will be transferable to any professional video editing tool.

Network with other photographers and have some fun shooting in Vegas!
This workshop is for all levels of photographers, however we will not be going over camera/lens basics in great detail. We will be teaching and demonstrating with Godox lighting such as AD600 and AD200. We love getting our lighting from Michael Mowbray at gomolight.com!
Light snacks and beverages will be provided for the welcome party and during the classes at the house.
The welcome party and the business and video editing classes will take place at our Airbnb in Vegas. We have a few super cool locations planned for the photo and video shoots, including the Ghost Town and a dry lake bed.
One of the incredible locations we'll be shooting at is the Ghost Town in Nelson, NV. With everything from old vehicles, crashed airplanes, pianos, old buildings and more spread all across their property, it's like a photographer's playground.
