I would like to announce our guest photographer, Meo Baaklini. Meo is (in her own words) an Intimate Wedding and Portrait photographer based in the San Francisco Bay area. She formally trained at the Academy of Art San Francisco and runs her own studio in Benicia, CA.
We know that many of our customers primarily shoot other kinds of work. But great pictures are great pictures! Meo does work both in her studio, on-location and outdoors in the challenging San Francisco weather. She will be sharing some of her favorite outdoor portrait tips during our Monday afternoon training time on July 22, 3:30-4:40pm*. For those of you that would like some tips for a portrait studio setting, we welcome you to join us in the Glamour Shots®** training session that will occur on Monday afternoon 1pm-3pm. During this indoor session, she will specifically cover shooting tips for Maternity and Boudoir photography. Please shoot us an email if you would like to attend the indoor, portrait studio training with Glamour Shots on Monday, July 22, 1-3pm PT so that we may guarantee we have enough seats! Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
We hope that you are able to attend and that you find the session with our distinguished guest photographer inspiring and that the time will translate into better photography, happier customers, more sales and more referrals for your business!
Here are a few of Meo’s favorite pieces of equipment.
50mm 1.4 (“My favorite lens… it stays on my camera 90% of the time!”)
Calumet 750 Travelites (umbrellas, softboxes, grid, snoot etc..)
Reflectors and huge 8ft tall polystyrene boards to bounce light back
We hope that you are excited about this great opportunity to get insight from another professional!
