Hosting a workshop is a fantastic way to learn A LOT in a short amount of time, and for free!  Most workshop locations have 2 separate workshops, 2 days each.  Therefore the host gets to attend 4 days of workshops.  To be a host, there are requirements and also an application.  If you meet the following requirements, please proceed to fill out the application.


  • Recruit 3 newborn models for each 2 day workshop, models must be under 12 days old // parents will get the images for FREE directly from me, and must fill out a Born Archival Co. model release. You are welcome to sell parents print products from my edited files.

  • Sign a non-compete stating you will not be teaching studio light newborn workshops in the next 3 years.

  • Assist in recruiting attendees: promote workshops on your social media pages and on any local/national photographer groups you may belong to.

  • Assist me in behind the scenes video and photographing.

  • Arrange a light breakfast (bread, fruit, etc), lunch (sandwiches or similar) , dinner out or order in (reservations) and snacks/refreshments for attendees and also have snacks and refreshments for parents. I will cover the cost.

  • Provide names of nearby hotels for attendees.

  • Translate, if needed.

  • Provide Wi-Fi.

  • Arrange 1 evening outdoor shoot with a mother and baby (newborn or under 1 year old).

  • Provide a large computer/tv screen for the editing and business presentation portion of the workshops.

  • Hosts must have a studio equipped to hold 8-12 attendees. For the natural light window we may need to cover the walls on each side with dark paper/fabric/v-flats to prevent light bounce into the shadows. All other windows must be able to be covered. Further studio requirements:

    • Beanbag and beanbag stand that can be adjusted (I may ask you to remove beans from your beanbag)

    • Underblankets for beanbag that are smooth (such as chenille)
