Totally new workshop program

I’m always trying to improve my workshops.
Over the years I’ve always added workshops, changed content etc. but this week I’ve made the biggest change ever.

Lenaa Januari 25 2014 B (3 of 4)

From now on all my workshops will be almost 100% flexible for the group I’m teaching.
I’ve been playing with the concept during my workshops abroad for some time now and found it incredibly successful, so now I’ve also moved this concept to the workshops in our studio in Emmeloord.


In short all workshops are build up by blocks.
Block A : Q&A
A Q&A session in which I will not only answer questions, but we will also determine the problem areas for the group and the workshop will be tailor made to tackle these problems.
Block B : Live session with model
A full photoshoot with several light setups, themes etc. with a professional model.
Block C : Groups discussion of the material shot during the workshops
A discussion about the shots taken during the workshop with tips and hints on how to improve.
Block D : Groups assignment
Every workshop this will be different depending on the group, in this assignment the group has to work together to fulfill a “commercial shoot” meaning from the styling to the retouching.
Block E : Retouch and workflow
Full overview of my workflow, Lr/Ps and plugins, including many tips depending on the shots we took during the day.
Block F : Portfolio review
Take your 10 best shots and get a review not only from me but also from the other attendees, a very informative part of the workshop.
Block G : Home work
Every group gets a home work assignment which will be judged by me within a week after receipt of the images.

Remember this is just a short description.
Because I want the workshops to be affordable for all people we are offering several new workshops on the site:




Workshop “Succesful portraits”  : 95.00 Euro
A 3 hour workshop which is aimed at the commercial photographer,
In this workshop I work with standard people (non models) and will shoot their portraits together with the group.
Several topics are discussed like :
Shooting people with glasses, dark/white backgrounds, coaching the subject, creating something more unique, shooting a headshot or avatar.


Workshop “Fashion shoot A-Z” : 85.00 Euro
Full workflow workshop where the attendees don’t shoot themselves
In the workshop I run through all the problems you can encounter during every stage of a photoshoot from planning to retouching and sharing on social media.


Workshop “Modelphotography” : 199.00 Euro
Blocks : A,B,C,G
Workshop topics : fashion, small flash or glamour (separate workshops)


Workshop “Modelphotography DLX” : 350.00 Euro
Blocks : A,B,C,D,E,F,G
Workshop topics : fashion, small flash or glamour (separate workshops)


Workshop “Ultimate workshop weekend” : 999.00 EURO
Friday : 19:00-22:00 / Saturday : 10:00-18:00
Blocks : A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H
The most complete workshop I can teach, one day will be studio sets and one day will be location sets.
Including a nice relaxing diner with the group and our team.





All workshops are taught in both Dutch and English (depending on the group).
Every attendee will receive a certificate after the workshop.
The dates of the workshops (in Dutch) can be found on if you want to follow one in English please contact me.

    I clicked the button for the N.Y workshop….. then called 9 1 1. for the heart attack that ensued.

    It was like one of those Mastercard moments.
    $2500.– workshop
    $400. — airfare
    $400. — 3 nights stay in Brooklyn
    $200. — meals
    $100. — transportation
    (PLUS exchange of 6% on every dollar from Canadian to U.S.)

    the look on the wife’s face when the bill come in….. Priceless..

    I’m just going to have to settle in to the idea I’m never going to be able to do this, and be happy with it.

      Do realize that this is not a 1 day workshop.
      It’s 3 full days and 2 evenings with a small group.

      We have to fly in with 2 persons, rent the models (2 models each day), studio, transportation etc.

      In the past I did one day workshops from 10:00-16:00 which were priced at 425.00 now we go three full days and 2 evenings and to be honest I think it’s a very fair price for what you’re gonna get. We will still do the 1 day workshops but that will be much more difficult to pull off in the states due to the high costs of getting there. We have to fly in at least 3 days before the workshops due to jetlag.

      However I’m always open to do something in your area, if you are willing to help set something up we can maybe fly after a PSW to your area, you can always mail me about this.

      No problem, you can subscribe for any workshop now.
      All the new workshops are based on the Q&A principle so that means that the group actually determines for 80% where the workshops go, this way you will always learn what you want to learn, plus A LOT more.
