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 workshop day, 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.

  • 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.

  • Translate, if needed.
  • Provide Wi-Fi.
  • If near a scenic area, arrange 1 evening (sunset) outdoor shoot with mom and her newborn at a scenic location the day after or before the workshops. This shoot will only be for the host and myself.
