The Key to Taking Pictures {workshop} -- GIVEAWAY!

9:31 PM
Hello there.

To show my appreciation for your support and kind words over the last 10 months (since my book came out), I'm giving away one spot to one of my workshops! That's right, one of you will get to join me at the workshop of your choice for free! (a $225 value)

Want to take stunning photos?! Get the free ebook. ---------------------->>

Here are the workshop places and dates:

All of the workshops will be held on a Saturday and limited to only 10 people.

What you will learn:
  • the in's and outs of your camera so you can finally get it off auto.
  • all about aperture, ISO, and shutter speed and how they relate. (so important!)
  • easy tips and tricks to get sharp crisp pictures.
  • what settings you have YOUR specific camera on.
  • what kind of light to look for, how to position your subject in regards to the light, and how to take a great picture in any lighting situation.
  • how to compose a striking picture.
  • my entire editing process from start to finish.
What you will get:
  • 4 hours of interactive learning including 30 minutes of actual shooting time.
  • a hardcopy of my book (a $50 value) to use throughout the workshop and beyond.
  • a copy of my ebook (a $35 value) to read before the workshop.
  • confidence on how to use your camera and how to take great pictures.
  • new friendships with other photographers in your area.

Click here to read about some of the previous workshops I held.

What some past participants are saying:
“I felt like I came into the class with some knowledge of photography, but I left REALLY understanding some of the basics.  I feel like my photography “skills’ have increased about 100%!” -Jessica M.
“This was honestly the best way I’ve ever been taught.  I’ve taken a couple photography classes and still had to learn on my own.  But I understood everything you were saying and  your examples helped me take my photography even further.” -Devrie J.
“I can’t tell you how much I learned from your workshop! My pictures have greatly improved and I owe that all to you. Thank you!” -Carrie G.

"It finally makes sense! Thank you so much for your incredibly enlightening workshop. It was worth every penny! -Sarah M.


To Enter the Giveaway:
(Please leave a separate comment for each entry including your email address. Let me know why you need to win! You can enter up to 5 times.)

1- Become a follower of this blog.
3- Post a link to this contest on your Facebook page.
4- Post a link to this contest on your blog.
5- Post a link to this contest on Twitter.

The contest will end Tuesday, January 31st at midnight CST.


AND...as a bonus from now until the end of the giveaway use the discount code: THANKYOU for receive $10 off the workshop! (If you win the giveaway I will refund your payment.)

How to register for a workshop:
As soon as you make a payment, your spot is reserved. You can either pay the full amount by entering $225 in the amount box or pay half now and half 2 weeks before the workshop by entering $112.50 in the amount box. Here is the link to make the payment. In the notes section of paypal please indicate which workshop you will be attending. Send me an email if you have any questions. katie_perkes@yahoo.com

One last thing...
To promote the workshop I have some postcards that I got printed for each city. I'm looking for someone in San Antonio and Denver to help me out. 

I simply need you to take the postcards to areas around your city where you believe people who have cameras shop. Places like craft/scrap booking stores, camera shops, fabric shops, coffee shops, cupcake shops (all photographers like cupcakes, right?!), pediatrician offices,  kids clothing stores, OB offices, baby specialty shops...the list can go on and on.

You will kindly ask the owner/manger if you could put your postcards at the register for their customers to enjoy. After that, you're finished!

In return for helping me out you will receive my photography ebook, hard copy, and the exposure guide. send me an email if you're interested: katie_perkes@yahoo.com

good luck!

Hi Katie! I would love to come to a workshop! We have a camera that I don't know how to use more than half the stuff on in. It is sad because in High School I was really into photography. I was the photo editor for the yearbook and could take and develop my own photos. I would love to get back into it.

I am a recent blog follower. One of my great friends - Sam Lindsey - told me about you and emailed me your site and I have practically lived on it since! I JUST received my new dSLR camera for Christmas and it is completely my lifelong dream to become a real photographer. I can't afford your workshop when you come to Las Vegas, but if I could win it, it would completely be a dream come true! I love your blog and if I don't win the giveaway, I hope to be able to buy your book soon. Thanks for the chance!
