THIS WORKSHOP WAS CREATED WITH THE IDEA OF CREATING EXPERIENCES THAT WILL DRIVE CONNECTION WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SHARE AND LEARN FROM ONE ANOTHER. FORGING RELATIONSHIPS, CONNECTING WITH OTHERS, AND LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR CRAFT IS WHAT FOREST + FALLS IS ALL ABOUT. WE GENUINELY WANT EVERYONE TO WALK AWAY WITH A NEW SENSE OF FULFILLMENT, INSPIRATION AND KNOWLEDGE.

 

Forest + Falls will be filled with hours of learning opportunities from some spectacular photographers that we all know and love. We will have some incredible styled shoots ranging from wedding photography all the way to editorial and commercial photography to make sure our campers walk away with some rad images for their portfolio!

What are the deets?

- how much does it cost and what is included?

 

The price of the workshop varies based on your needs!  There is an option for no lodging, the group lodge (bare minimum hotel style - temperature controlled) and a fully furnished house that you'll share with up to 8 people. For more pricing and info, please visit the registration page! 

 

- how many people are attending?

 

We are allowing up to 250 people to attend. But fear not, with 33 speakers and styled shoots set up in small organized group, we like to think everyone will still have a personable experience! 

 

- where do i fly into and how do i get there?

 

We totally recommend everyone flying into BNA ( Nashville Airport) and carpooling with other attendees from our facebook group that we will extend an invite to upon registration! If for some reason we can't find you, please just contact us so we can connect you! 

 

- what topics will be covered?

 

This year will be a bit different. It came to our attention that people were thirsting for some sort of experience that allowed them to grow in their art and business.That's why we are taking a business driven approach this coming year! Sure, there will be wonderful and inspiring topics on creativity and the art of what we do. However, we will also be offering many classes that cover the ins and outs of running a profitable business. We like to think Forest & Falls will provide you with a bit of everything that you need! Picture this: learning how to determine your cost of doing business; pricing yourself to be profitable, not just survive; and many, many more things.  

 

- what should i bring?

 

Your camera- duh! We recommend everyone bring their own bedding and towels for the bunk cabins along with your toiletries. If you opt to stay in the furnished houses, you will be provided bedding.

 

- What type of photographer is F+F for?

So glad you asked! We like to think F+F is for everyone. Even if you are just starting on in your business or have been at it for 10 years, there is always something to learn and there are always people to meet. Going to a place where we can share our fears and doubts with others who share the same emotions is an invaluable experience in itself. Even if you are still getting technical ropes down, we still feel the workshop offers other vast amounts of knowledge that are better learned earlier than later! A lot of our content will be geared towards wedding photographers, but there will be some takeaways for running a business that can apply to photographers of any genre.

- What will I eat?

Simple! Food! But more specifically, we will have a menu for all dietary restrictions as well as alternative options for everyone! We like to think our caterers are the bomb.com and that everyone is going to love the food! We definitely worked hard to find something that goes beyond your standard cafeteria food! In fact, our food was known for being a hit our first year and we are happy to have the same awesome caterers join us again! Keep in mind, the no lodging option does not include meals and there will be a required wristband to receive meals.

- How will the styled shoots be?

So glad you asked! You know those shoots that are like 30 photographers fighting for the same shot while no one demonstrates how they work with their subjects? This won't be that! We're changing things up this year and having walk-along shoots throughout the week with certain shooters so that people can get some camera time in and put the things they're learning into practice. These breakout classes allow you to shadow the speaker and ask questions in a more relaxed, controlled environment. There will also be some free time built in throughout the week, so feel free to grab a friend and shoot portraits of each other as you explore. We'll have another day of styled shoots set up to allow you to practice things you've learned as well.  

- Will there be free time? 

Well duh! We definitely want to give people the chance to explore the amazing state park and forge new relationships! We plan on finishing up early enough every night so that everyone can get back to camp and enjoy the company of each other. Oh, and if the season allows, we do plan on campfires and s'mores!
