Spend a day with Leah and Anne immersed in photography and learning in Chicago, IL!
Anne Kerr (Chicago), of anja Photography, and Leah Robinson of Leah Robinson Photography (Melbourne, Australia) are two of the worlds leading family photographers. Both run fully booked, extremely successful photography businesses that see them travelling interstate, and worldwide to capture stunning art work for families all over the world. While their main focus is their client based photography business, they also LOVE to teach other photographers how to have the same success in their own photography business, by teaching them how to create fine art portraits utilising natural light outdoors.

Start the day at 11am with a casual and intimate gathering at Anne's new studio (35 miles NW of Chicago), where we will discuss with you the methods behind the shooting techniques we use with our clients, the hows and whys behind which equipment you should be using for what location and story, our 3D lighting secrets, and our ideas on how to produce storytelling imagery in every session. We will share all of our styling process, so that you too can have clients match your artistic vision. We will explore the outdoors and show you how we find the light and how we find beauty in wherever you go. Beautiful shots can be created anywhere if you know how to use the light-because real life settings is our reality! We will SHOW you how we connect with our subjects as well as create connection between our subjects to get clients shedding tears of joy. All the "how-to's" we utilise to achieve emotion in portraiture will be shared and we promise it will change take your photography to the next level!

We will also demonstrate, step by step how we hand edit and achieve those razor sharp images, how we produce the tones and richness, and all the editing secrets we have. Nothing is held back.

We will embark on an amazing outdoor sunset shoot-we show you what inspires us in the most unassuming locations, and how in every situation, it is ALL about the light. Once you know how to find it, you can make any location look amazing. We will work with REAL families and children, to show you how we create those dream like, emotional family portraits that make our clients come back again, and again.
Limited to 12 attendees only, and with 2 instructors, you are ensured personalised, high quality learning. We WILL look at the back of your camera, and will explain the how and why of what we think. As past attendees will attest, we are REAL teachers. There are no egos at Horizon Within.

A private online forum will be set up 4 weeks prior to the workshop so we can all become acquainted, and begin our learning journey. In here, we will arrange a date to have a pre workshop webinar, where we discuss all the basic details involved in capturing tack sharp, authentic and artistic family photographs that are full of colour, emotion, and love. This way, you come into the workshop already energised and inspired, ready to learn all we have to offer.

After you have had a chance to go home, and apply your new knowledge, we will meet again online a month after for an editing webinar, so you can continue your learning journey. Past attendees have found it extremely beneficial to have more than just one day to absorb information because repetition is integral to learning and transforming your work.
