Underwater Workshop

Palatka, Florida | June 4, 2017

THE MYSTERY THAT LIES BENEATH

The mysteries that lie beneath the surface of the water are so compelling to me. I have been working with water for decades as a scientist and photographer exploring its properties.  After many years of shooting clients, I wanted to show others just how great the experience can be when you let go of your worries and follow your clients into a ethereal movement under the surface.

FULL DAY WORKSHOP

This full day intensive underwater workshop will teach you how to take your portrait company to a new level. Taught by Jennifer Tallerico.

UNDERWATER SHOOTING

We will have pool time for each photographer to get in there and test out these skills with a model for boudoir, as well as for the look of senior portraits for your portfolio.  A light lunch will be provided as well as snacks to keep us going while in and out of the water!

Join us in Palatka, Florida at a my private studio for classroom time, and a full competition pool for underwater shooting.
