OREGON COAST APRIL 24-27
The Oregon Coast stands alone with dynamic coastal forests, black basalt coastlines and rugged landscapes that make this location one of the most sought after locations in the world. Truth be told, the Oregon Coast has for many years, been the envy of many with locations like: Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park, Hug Point and Pacific City.
OUR TIME TOGETHER On our first evening together we will meet over dinner at our beach house that we will call home for 3 nights. During this time, attendees and vendors will have time to greet and share stories.
The next two days, we will document three styled shoots set above the most serene views in the Oregon Coast. During our two full days, we will meet at our beach house to learn from industry leading professionals about branding, marketing, social media, film and digital work flows. Conversations will continue through out class times to expand on using light, documenting weddings, working with your ideal clients, publications, booking destination weddings, working on styled shoots, working with planner/stylists, working with your film lab and how to execute business to the best of your ability. We will leave no stone unturned, I wish I could share with you right now, how impactful this workshop will be. Leaving the rat race of this industry behind and finding time to hone in your skill set via our instruction, our interactions and our conversations will leave you fulfilled in ways you may have never experience beforeâ€Śread on.
JUST FOR YOU Donny Zavala is carefully selecting the best industry leading practices and looks for our workshop with the intention to bring you the best imagery and augment your portfolio to potentially create more business for you. The education sessions are likewise vital and here again we will only speak on practical and relevant topics. Donny is ready to unpack everything he has learned, from shooting luxury weddings, international weddings and how he continues to grow his business. These decisions will be carefully studied and planned as we feel only the best practices can bring the most traction to your business. Itâ€™s vital to us that you will also find your self in deep conversation with our creative team that will be as fulfilling as the shoots themselves.
