This is the workshop you’ve been looking for

At least, I hope so. I’ve hosted many workshops all over the world, but I’m excited to again return to Orlando.

My workshop is very intensive and practical. You’ll learn about my current business, workflows, equipment, and process for effortless creative portraits and documentation of wedding days. Other topics include – the inner workings of my “company of one,” preset development, how to nurture sustainable creativity, and a live shoot with a real couple. All photographs I make during the day will be presented and edited from start-through-delivery in front of the group. You will also have plenty of opportunities to make photos for yourself!

Key takeaways include:

  • Insight into my current business operations and workflows
  • Understanding my equipment and process for seamless creation of couples’ portraits
  • Insight for fostering sustainable creativity
  • A live photo-shoot with a real couple
  • A demonstration of my editing process, from raw image to final delivery

The workshop is designed to be a highly interactive session, offering you the opportunity to not just observe, but also create and refine your own photographs.

Worth the time, worth the money. Sam is an amazing photographer well-known for his distinctive aesthetic, and his workshop is a great place to learn about the techniques he uses to achieve that. But the less-obvious way in which Sam’s instruction is worthwhile is the really solid procedure and workflow he uses. He’s refined his system at every stage of the process, from initial contact and leads to back-up to delivery, and it’s a level of professionalism that’s worth trying to imitate. A+, would recommend.

After this 2 days I feel big motivation and curiosity, and I already apply a lot of improvement in my work, my pictures are just better than before ! Thank you Sam for everything ! Hope to see you again one day.

Sam’s workshop was by far the best I’ve ever attended. He’s a really genuine person with an insane talent and an honest willingness to share anything and everything he can.vHe teaches specific techniques, down to breaking down individual images in his portfolio and how to use those skills in our own work. He teaches high level ideas just as strongly as he explains specific techniques. I would attend another workshop of his in a heart beat.

Sam was incredible – he shared any and everything about his photography. And not just his techniques, which are unique and original, but also his business practices. We had an open discussion about any topics – and the model shoot was fun, laid back and informative. Definitely recommend Sam’s workshop! If he comes to a city that’s near you, it’s worth the money and the travel!

Sam is not only a photographer, but also a teacher and that title is pretty high in my book. Many people try to be teachers, and even some get paid to do it, but it isn’t an easy task. Not all artists can explain the why’s and how’s of their work. He was incredibly informative, organized, and engaging. He appealed to various types of learners with images, an intelligent lecture, and hands-on experience photographing models. There wasn’t an area he wasn’t knowledgeable about or a question he couldn’t answer. To top it off, he’s incredibly down to earth and likable!

This was the second photography-based workshop I’ve attended and it was truly an awesome experience. Sam organized everything really nicely and was open to any questions you had for him. Lots of great technical aspects covered. I would definitely attend this workshop.

Absolutely LOVED it! The title does do this workshop definitely justice. It was absolutely EPIC. Sam is such a genuinely nice guy and very open about his photography experiences, techniques and business strategies. After the two days, my head was totally and utterly buzzing from all the excitement and inspiration. This was probably one of my best workshop experiences ever! Kudos and a big, fat THANK YOU to this amazingly talented man!

I went into this workshop with a few other workshops under my belt already and didn’t think I’d learn a lot more then I already had with the others. I was completely wrong! I’m so happy I went to the epic and praxis workshop. It was such a great learning experience and I’m for sure a much more polished photographer with a few more tricks up my sleeves after attending. Thank you so much Sam!

I guess it ‘s always hard to digest these things in the moment but with a couple of weeks to take it in I thought it was worth saying that I really took a lot away from this workshop. Lots of great (and actionable) information that is already having a benefit. I’d highly recommend this, covers such a broad range and Sam is a great teacher.

Sam is an amazing photographer and an excellent instructor. His techniques and his tips on workflow improved my own work ten fold. I now have a more streamlined workflow and have really taken off in terms of business. I recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to shoot weddings!
