Mentoring Session

Capturing real moments, connection and love is everything to me. I love how light, blur, movement can create incredible depth in my frames that you cannot simply recreate in post processing. My heart skips a beat when the light dances off my subjects… I am an open book to share whatever you have dreamed up… I would love to help you paint alongside you on your artistic journey. Chase + Lisa’s destination adventures were part of the mentoring session I offer to local and out of state traveling photographers, willing to learn how to document the passion, love and connection. I only offer a handful those. If you are invested to learn more about the educational opportunities check out my mentoring page!

Who’s this for: Photographers who want to dig deeper in learning how to create connection between couples, capture love and authentic, real feelings, incorporating movement and play into the shoot. Learn to observe, and notice the light. Ideally you will come to the mentoring session knowing the basics of how to take photographs with your camera and how to edit. There will be a very quick review of basics and fundamentals at the start to make sure everyone is on the same page but this retreat is targeted at expanding on existing skills and pushing yourselves creatively. There will be time set aside for shooting in the field, an in depth discussion on how to approach scenes, and more.

  • How to get amazing shots in direct lighting conditions
  • What lenses to use to get the most “epic” look of landscapes
  • How to shoot successful tilt-shift photos
  • How to get real intimacy out of couples by NOT posing them
  • How I edit—and how to create your own presets
