About The Workshop:
We are excited to announce the Kindle Workshop #2! After their first collaboration in April and it being such a huge success, it was only natural to host another one this fall.
The Kindle Workshop is a three-day hands on collaborative learning experience hosted by Ang McCabe and Nicole Ashley. Both artists have spoken at conferences worldwide and have over 20+ years of combined professional photography experience. They have been recognized as inspiring leaders within the photography industry and are passionate about educating and motivating other artists to push the boundaries of their art and take their business to the next level.
Taking place in Nicole's hometown, this three day workshop will be held in a beautiful heritage studio in the heart of downtown Edmonton Alberta. We are thrilled to offer a third day of education as Nicole and Ang have so much information they want to share with you!
Three days of educational material will be taught as well as several fully styled sessions (focusing on intimate couples portraiture and weddings) with Edmonton’s most sought after vendors. Attendees will receive delicious catered lunches on day 1 and 2 of the workshop along with beverages throughout the day.
Day 1 (10am - 6pm) - Connection, understanding your "why", posing, composition, details, and how to bring your images to the next level.
Day 1 Bonus: Live styled couples session (watch-and-learn style)
Day 2 (10am - 6pm) - Hands-on educational day complete with 3 beautifully styled sessions created by Edmonton's top industry professionals. Attendees will be able to shoot along side Nicole and Ang and build incredible portfolio images. This day includes more in-depth posing, direction, ques and prompts as well as open Q and A throughout the day.
Day 3 (10am-2pm) - In depth pricing education. How to price yourself and earn more money and how to build a travel/destination portfolio and Q & A time.
*times and schedule subject to change, dates will remain unchanged.
Attendees who purchase the three day pass will be able to shoot alongside Nicole and Ang creating beautiful images to strengthen their portfolio. For those only able to attend the first day, they will receive hours of invaluable information along with learning from Nicole and Ang as they shoot and direct a live couples session in the studio (watch-and-learn style). The goal is to provide a fun and educational three day experience that leaves you feeling inspired to take your art and business to another level. We also want to create an intimate community with our attendees so that we can stay in touch and continue to motivate and learn from one another in the future!

What should I bring?
Please bring a notebook or laptop for taking notes as well as a DSLR camera and lenses. You will be shooting alongside Nicole and Ang, so anything you would bring to a regular photoshoot (but scaled down) would be a good idea.
What is your refund policy?
Payments are non-refundable but are transferable.
Can I use the images from the styled sessions in my portfolio?
Yes! We are curating amazing styled shoots for you to use in your own portfolio. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase fresh work or perhaps break into an area you have yet to shoot (couples boudoir or weddings). We will be demonstrating how we approach our sessions and then will be there to help you with live shoots. We will ask attendees to created the workshop and vendors when sharing images.
Are accommodations included?
Accommodations are not included, but we chose a studio space in downtown specifically so you would have lots of options for Airbnb’s or hotels. You can also post in our Facebook group if you are looking for a roommate!
What is the weather like in Edmonton, AB that time of year?
