I have a chance to attend an upcoming supershoot in my area. I am new to glamour and think a weekend learning experience would greatly help me. Ho [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]wever, I am curious to see if anyone here has attended a supershoot and if its worth the money? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Mark,

If you walk away from ANY workshop or lecture and take away even ONE thing you didn't know before, it's worth it!

Have fun!

Mark,
I'd go for it if I were you. I've been to several workshops and the experience has helped me alot. You learn not only from the person putting on the workshop, but also from the attendies. You will meet people of all skill levels at most workshops ,Pick thier brain and you can learn lots. I've found that the models are a much higher calibre then I find in my area and working with them also teaches me alot about posing.

Yea, I've attended a JT's Supershoots and enjoyed it. I can also recommend Photo Intensive (run by Robert Sanders).

Mark, look at it this way, it is in your local area so....no transportation and lodging costs. Save a bunch that way. JT's events are geared to learning, like Jerry stated if you only walk away with one thing it is worth it. I'm attending as well as a couple of other local shooters, so...lets hope we see you there.

JT and his team always do a great job. The key is that you go ready to absorb information and to network with the other photographers and the models.

I've attended 2 supershoots as a model. I've talked to a ton of photographers who also attended and have NEVER EVER heard one bad thing. They all rave about the fantastic learning experience J T provides.

Well Mark,...it's kind of hard to tell...your portfolio is empty,...and you don't have a link to a website..

For me,...I doubt if I would ever pay to go to one of those, being that they are several hundred dollars,.....I have to think,...what would I learn?

I understand that many of those are attended by people who lack basic knowledge of the fundamentals of photography,..who are picking up a LOT of good info, and by watching people who do know a thing or two about their lighting, working with models,..etc,...they walk away with their dollars worth.

I think that the only way I'd ever go to one would be if I was invited as a mentor or something like that.. I just enjoy helping others.. I don't think I could learn much,...or really need to work with any of the models..

What cracks me up,...is when I see several 0MP profiles with the same model, the same setting, the same pose (for the most part)....that I just know were taken at some workshop,...and they all try to pretend that this was entirely their gig.. LOL!

I have never attended a workshop.....I have nothing against them,....for I think they can help out those who can gain something from them....however,....there is a certain point to which they are not necessarly helpful any longer.. I think I've reached that point..(humbly speaking)..

I believe that if you go to a workshop open mind wanting to learn then you will.

I would hate to think that - even after all of these years as a professional photographer - I do not try to learn something new every day. As a mentor and an instructor I can honestly say that there has not been a workshop where I myself did not come away with a new look on a way to do things and a renewed vigor what I do daily. That knowledge comes not only from the other instructors and mentors but from the students as well.

I would hate to think that my plate is full and there is nothing left for me to learn. How sad it would be to think I "knew it all" - even worse to think that I might take that proclaim that attitude as a mentor!!! I am as a much a student of the profession as I am a teacher.

I would suggest whether it is Supershoots or one of the many other workshops being offered .... if you are wanting to take your photography to the next level ... sign up and come with an empty plate and fill it with knowledge!!!!!!
best regards.....dK
