The Blueprint: Austin, TX

Would you like to be given a blueprint that helps you deliver consistent, repeatable results and become a more confident photographer even as a beginner? Do you struggle with shooting in manual mode? Do you struggle with natural light? Are you tired of watching dozens of youtube videos and never really learning much? Need to learn Lightroom?

If you said yes to ANY of these questions then you are in the right place.

Introducing The Blueprint Workshop! The workshop that teaches you a system of thinking, preparing, shooting and editing that is predictable, easy and consistent.

Who is The Blueprint for?

  • Photographers struggling to shoot in manual mode

  • Beginners who have purchased their first DSLR camera and are just getting started

  • Photographers who struggle with Lightroom and finding a consistent style

  • People who want to charge more money but lack the confidence and/or skill

  • Photographers that don’t have a system for organizing and storing their images

  • Photographers that don’t understand the exposure triangle

  • Photographers that have trouble seeing and understanding light.

Does this sound like you?

Every world class photographer was once in your shoes. Watching video after video and attending seminar after seminar. But one thing ALL great photographers eventually develop is a system! A predicable way of thinking, shooting, editing and delivering their final product. What’s stopping you from becoming a better, more consistent photographer is having your own system that you can depend on time and time again.

Imagine how confident you would be knowing that you could deliver quality images regardless of location or circumstance. Imagine having a system in place that is efficient and easy to use. Image owning your DSLR camera for a very short period of time but still taking GREAT photos.

The Blueprint Workshop is designed with you in mind.  It’s a 1-day, hands on workshop that doesn’t give you one piece of the puzzle but an entire system in and of itself. It allows you to see STEP-BY-STEP exactly how beginners eventually become professionals. When you leave you’ll have a detailed gameplan to help you think, shoot and deliver better photos the very next time you pick up your camera. 

Here’s what you get!

  • 8 hours of hands on demos and classroom instruction designed to accelerate your knowledge of your camera and your gear.

  • 1 hour of shooting on location to test techniques and theories learned in class.

  • LIVE Lightroom editing and workflow demonstration to see exactly how to edit photos efficiently and consistently.

  • The ability to get instant feedback on what works and what doesn't work when taking photos.

  • Small Q&A sessions throughout the day to answer any additional questions you may have.

As an added bonus you’ll also receive….

  • PDF of the workshop slideshow to use as future reference once you get out in the field and put your own system to work!

  • Free download of the exact presets I use to edit my photos.

Some of the topics we’ll discuss include….

  • the exposure triangle

  • gear

  • editing

  • confidence and creativity

  • shooting in manual mode

  • developing an editing style

  • how to navigate Lightroom

  • how to export images

  • evoking natural emotion

  • and much more

Hear what others are saying about The Blueprint Workshop….

“I loved the workshop, it was very helpful and organized! I definitely know that I gained some helpful knowledge for my photography and business. Jerrell was a great teacher and answered questions as honestly as possible and gave out knowledge and tips. Overall, it was clear and organized and kept the theme of the workshop, which is the blueprint!” - Diane W.

Jerrell did an amazing job explaining the necessary components of photography (from a beginner’s level). He was knowledge of photography and took a logical approach to explain the content. I walked away with some valuable tips including understanding ISO, aperture and shutter speed and why it is important as well as recommendations of photo editing software and editing approaches. Also, it is worth noting that a segment of the workshop was dedicated to practical application (which is rare) and that was beyond a 5 stars rating..! - Larisa W.

Jerrell is an excellent photographer and teacher. He was able to break down complex photography topics in easy to understand bites. He is also very friendly and approachable. If anyone had any questions in the class, Jerrell would happily answer. Furthermore, Jerrell provided a model to show us the whole process of preparing, shooting, editing, and presenting our photos. That really helped tie everything together that we learned that day. I would whole-heartedly recommend that anyone interested in photography take this class. It really does provide a “blueprint” to take your photography game to the next level. - George G.

I became aware of Jerrell’s workshop through a photography facebook group. I am a beginning photographer that started less than 1 year ago. I have watched a couple Youtube videos, became familiar with some of the lingo; but I felt like I was missing something that could tie all that into a solid foundation. Jerrell’s workshop really helped get a good starting foundation. I was impressed with how structured the workshop was with well thought out content that was applicable without the fluff. He was very helpful in answering all our questions. I really appreciated learning about the whole creative process instead of just one piece. I was especially impressed that Jerrell got a model so we can test out what we learned in class. I would definitely recommend Jerrell’s workshop and I feel I am a much better photographer in just a couple hours. Thanks Jerrell. - Haemy C.

The class was great. I learned a few things that I didn’t know and I can apply. There were also things I learned that I will be trying in the future. I think it was excellent for beginners. It was a lot of information but very informative and explained very simplistic. There were things as a pro that I didn’t quite understand until I heard it in this class. - Tyeshia B.
