Photography Workshops in Dallas

Posted by Kelly Simants

I am so blessed to be surrounded by incredibly talented Photographers in the Dallas area – two of them in particular are hosting workshops for Photographers that will help take your business to the next level. I am passionate about education in our wedding community, so am super excited that these Photographers are taking the time to share their knowledge and expertise with their industry peers!

First, Christina Quintanilla of ChrysQ Luxe Slipcovers and Ben Quintanilla of Ben Q Photography are hosting a “Winter Workshop” at Third Space Dallas on December 28, 2009.  Ben will be reviewing lighting set-up, recommended camera settings, and equipment used.  Christina will be staging her ChrysQ Winter 2010 Catalog in a “Winter Vintage” theme – you’ll have the opportunity to take photos at this shoot…and then those images will be included in the catalog and of course you’ll receive the credit. Very cool!  You’ll then head over to Forbeyon Studios for a post-production tutorial.


Next, Stacy Reeves of Stacy Reeves Photography is launching a workshop called “Mind Your Business” on January 24, 2010.  Stacy is one of the most business savvy Photographers I know, and she is passionate about educating her colleagues to understand the nuts and bolts of what it takes to be a successful business owner.  She is going to share her best practices with you on pricing and sales strategies, developing and maintaining client relationships, maximizing your return on investment related to marketing, advertising, and networking…and a whole lot more.  Check out her site for more info!


Also, be sure to leave a comment and we’ll donate a can of food to our local food banks in Dallas and Seattle!  Here is more info on our Cans for Comments drive -
