“The Swan House was built in 1928 for Edward and Emily Inman in Atlanta, Georgia. The Inmans had accumulated wealth from cotton brokerage and investments in transportation, banking and real estate. After their house in Ansley Park burned in 1924, the Inmans commissioned the Atlanta architectural firm of Hentz, Reid and Adler to design a new house in on 28 acres (110,000 m2) in Buckhead, a northern Atlanta community. The new mansion’s design was executed by Philip Trammell Shutze, combining Renaissance revival styles with a Classical approach on the main facade. The rear facade is less formal, and is sited at the top of a small hill with terraced gardens and a fountain cascading down the hillside. A recurring motif are sculpted or painted swans throughout the house and grounds.” – Wikipedia
JEREMY CHOU WORKSHOP
Thanks for your interest in my upcoming workshop! Photographers always ask me why do I share all the ‘secrets’ with other photographers by putting on workshops. And to be honest, it’s because I have a passion for teaching & sharing. I am also a firm believer of “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats.” By raising the bar for all the photographers, we work together to make this industry better for ALL of us. I put my heart and soul into each workshop and I am extremely excited to share with you what we have planned!
Also, for the first time ever, I’m teaming up with Robert with Robert Michael Films to co-host this workshop. Robert is an amazingly talented videographer who has documented celebrity weddings worldwide. He brings a wealth of knowledge of marketing and a different perspective to the workshop. I’m so excited to co-host with him!
SWAN HOUSE, ATLANTA
WHAT TO EXPECT
We all know nowadays ANYBODY and EVERYBODY is a wedding photographer. It seems like a new Facebook fan page is being created every second. How can you carve out a niche in such a competitive market, to make a good living, all while being true to your authentic self? In my workshop, we will tackle this head on. The workshop is broken up into two full days. On day one we will concentrate on the art of photography. In the morning, we will talk about posing, finding the light, metering, different film stock, and how to tell a compelling story out of nothing. We will have a gorgeous bride & groom model in a well stylized bridal shoot. I will demonstrate how I look for light, composition, interacting with my subjects and making fine art images that will stand true test of time. On the second day, it’s all about business. Pricing, albums, social media, marketing, I will share everything I have learned in running a successful wedding photography business. You will walk away with practical strategies that can be implemented immediately into your own business. Expect to have lots of one-on-one time with myself. The workshop is purposely kept small & intimate in a judgement free environment. I want everybody to feel comfortable in asking all those embarrassing (but important!) questions you might not be comfortable in asking in a big group setting. Expect to have lots of fun in a well structured classroom setting. I can’t wait to meet you!
TOPICS COVERED – Curating your way to a recognizable brand – Pricing yourself to attract high end clientele. – Leveraging social media – Marketing to your ideal clients – Album upsell strategies. – Minimum two beautifully styled shoots to boost your portfolio. – Posing candid portraits, even with the most challenging clients.
Honestly, words cannot express how grateful I am to have attended this workshop and finally meet Jeremy Chou in person! He has a wealth of knowledge that he is so eager to share with his attendees, and you can tell how hard he worked to put everything together! The team he had for the workshop was incredible, and the styled shoot was on point! No detail was left unnoticed. The connections I made with the other attendees was so invaluable as well. I am so excited to implement everything I learned at this workshop and to see how my business will grow!

The Jeremy Chou Photography Workshop was a life changing experience that we would absolutely recommend to other photographers, film or otherwise. We were able to immediately apply the invaluable insight Jeremy provided from a business standpoint. This insight encouraged us to change the direction of our brand and focus more on what makes sense for our business and clientele. Don't second guess this opportunity, it’s worth every penny!

The workshop with Jeremy was eye opening! As a newer photographer to the wedding industry, seeing the breakdown and psychology of why he uses the specific pricing structure he does was empowering! There is absolutely a reason for everything he does and he reveals it all from blogging to SEO and so much more. The styled shoot was just a wonderfully designed cake on top of all the insight and knowledge he presented. I really couldn't have asked for more!
Attending Jeremy Chou’s workshop was the turning point in my business. I learned more about what I wanted from my business and how to achieve it, than I had in two years of trial and error. Jeremy runs his workshop with an “open book” approach and is happy to answer any business and/or photography related question. I was extremely new to film when I attended, and he was patient with all of my questions. Now that I know more, I hope to attend another in the future.
