Jenny Sun Workshops 2015

You guys asked for it! So we're bringing it to you!! :D  
We're BACK this year in KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA for the only TWO workshop we are hosting in the region this year!! Some wonderful news about both workshops: 
1) We are having it a very private and exclusive venue that is just gorgeously beautiful, rustic, and BIG. You're going to LOVE learning in this space. 
2) The syllabus has been revamped, and the two days will be even more packed with topics, teaching, and information than the last time we were in KL including: 
- How to see and use different kinds of light, and pick/use light for the most flattering photos, and least editing 
- How to pose your clients, to look and feel natural 
- Post production, editing and workflow 
- Branding, and marketing techniques to attract the clients you want and love working with 
- Hearing how JSP started from day 1, to the international brand that it is today 
- How to stand out better and be more unique in an already competitive industry 
- How to spend less time in front of the computer, and more time living life 
- And much more! 
I have honestly, always always believed that the success of a photography business rides on how well a photographer does two things:  
(A) produce their art, and  
(B) run their business.  
My philosophy has followed the strength of that marriage and this workshop is about those two very things. We are going to spend 2 very intense days working from the inside-out. I'll be going through all things JSP: 
- my story, my successes as well as my mistakes, and how each has bettered my journey 
- what inspires me and how I work through creative 'dry patches' 
- the ins and outs of the JSP 'storytelling' style of photography and how it has changed my entire business 
- my gear, and what pieces I use for what kind of photos 
- how I use light 
- how I pose and interact with couples (ie. how to keep them relaxed, natural, and make sure they walk away having FUN at the shoot). 
- I'll also detail the JSP workflow, with photoshop and lightroom demonstrations, and strategies on how to spend less time in front of the computer, so you have more time to shoot AND live life :)  
We'll also be working out who YOU are as a photographer and YOUR style, and helping you carry that through to your photos as well as your business and brand. Sounds scary? It is! But that is the fun of it - Learning to be a better photographer AND a better entrepreneur! :)  
Our aim from the workshop is to help you walk away with the skills and confidence to shoot better photos that you love (that is covering use of posing, light, composition and post processing), AND running a business that works around YOU whether you want to go fulltime, or remain freelance while working a day job, as well as learning how to book clients that LOVE the photos that you shoot, pricing, workflow, time management, social media, etc) :) Time will also be spent learning about how I work with my clients from the moment I meet them, to the shoot, to the finished product.  
There will also be some opportunities for 1 on 1 time with me during the two days, however, to the first 5 students that sign up with the earlybird registration, I will be also offering a complimentary session of a dedicated 45 minute 1 on 1 time for questions and feedback/critique :)  
***Kuala Lumpur: 10am to 6pm each day, 25th and 26th April 2015. Lunch included every day.  
***Sydney: 10am to 6pm each day, 11th and 12th April 2015. Lunch included every day.  
***Kuala Lumpur: Ruang Venue - A beautiful private space in Subang Jaya :) That's right, the place is ALL OURS for the 2 days. With ample free parking, hotels and shopping malls nearby, and most of all, it is over a weekend meaning no fighting through traffic to get to this place, and no need to take leave from work! We can run loose and have fun!! :D FULL details will be given to each person registered. You'll LOVE it I promise!! Here is a sneak peek: 
***Sydney: We're going to be meeting in a gorgeous natural light warehouse in Surry Hills with beautiful white walls, large windows, and wooden panelled floors. Details will be given upon registration! :D 
- your own camera (even a basic SLR camera will do) 
- your own laptop (if you plan to edit photos for exercises at the workshop) 
- you will need a basic understanding of shutterspeed, ISO, and aperture as these elements will not be covered in detail, as the focus on the shooting component of this workshop will focus on posing, and how to use light best for your photos.  
CAPACITY: Limited to 15-20 people. First come first served basis.  
***Kuala Lumpur: $850AUD per person (earlybird rate). Regular rate will be $1200 after March 16th 2015.  
***Sydney: $995AUD per person (earlybird rate). Regular rate will be $1395 after March 16th 2015.  
So please do join me!! These will be the ONLY workshops I will be running in the region this year. The past 6 workshops we ran sold out in about a week, and with seats limited to only 15-20 people, do get in early to get your place and also take advantage of the early bird rate we have!
