My favorite memories from growing up were from our family camping trips we went on every summer. I carry on this tradition with my children when we pack up the truck and head to the woods to explore, hike, and roast marshmallows by a fire for a week each summer. I thought what could be more fun than to styled shoot in a beautiful outdoor location where it brings back childhood like the wonder of a day spent exploring outdoors. The shoot will capture all the nostalgia from a childhood years ago with a family with three + children, beautiful retro color clothing, and a relaxed vibe. You will learn how I balance capturing staged candid moments and a documentary approach to photographing a family. I am a 100% film photographer, so along with showing how I photograph a family; I will be focusing on how I choose my film stocks, rating, metering, and working with a lab on the technical side. All levels of film knowledge are welcome, along with all digital photographers. If you have never tried film before, this is your chance to have fun with no pressure.

Set against the mountains of Park City, details will include real wedding day components including a lush ceremony set up, detailed tablescape and real couple.

just a feeling

daniel kim

We will have stations of details set up, but the objective of this shoot is to shoot intuitively. If you feel like there are things you want to do, but you can't because of what is expected of you at shoots, we are going to smash the glass. What would it be like if you wanted to shoot everything in black and white, or if you wanted to use only one camera? I am going to go through the process of how I shoot intuitively at shoots and the rules I set for myself to think creatively, but more importantly how I incorporate that same process to my paid work for clients.

Learn how to achieve a professional and natural-light look using practical and elegant artificial lighting strategies in those dreaded dark scenarios during a wedding day! If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to properly use flash and no longer look like a deer in headlights in any dark situation, this educational shoot is for you. You’ll learn how to solve various lighting challenges using on/off camera flash including constant lights. And here’s the kicker: you'll be learning how to do this all on film! While it would be helpful for you to bring your own speedlight, all of the lighting gear you’ll need will be provided for you. In fact, you don’t need any flash experience to attend this shoot. Due to the more technical nature of this styled shoot, we’ll be spending an extra hour longer than other styled shoots to make sure everyone has enough time to learn the lighting education and be able to shoot accordingly. (6-10pm)
