Date: July 25th 2015

Time: 1pm-7 pm 

Location: Private Lakeside Residence on Lake Gaston, NC

 What is a Shootout?? A shootout provides hands on learning and is specifically geared towards shooting. Because let’s be honest…Hands on learning is THE best way to learn. Whether you are a professional photographer wanting to expand your portfolio, a photographer just starting out and in search of direction and guidance or a mom with a camera who just wants to take better pictures….You will walk away at the end of the day seeing photography in a whole new light and having made new friends. We will be discussing issues that effect both hobbyists and business owners. The ONLY requirement is that you have to know how to shoot Manual Mode. 


Make it Click: Photography Shootout is unlike most shootouts. Make it Click is 6 hours long in duration…..with 2 hours dedicated classroom time and the remaining 4 dedicated to shooting.  When you attend our shootout, you will get to photograph 4 separate genres! Seriously…..FOUR! You will get the opportunity to experience and photograph a GLAM senior session, a “stylized” child session, a lifestyle toddler session (with family) and a couples session. Everything you photograph, you can use in your portfolio, for advertising purposes and on your website/blog. We simply ask that you do not sell the images or submit the shootout images for publication. We also ask that you give credit to any vendors AND sponsors associated with the shootout as well.


AND because we love you guys SO much….We want you to send us your top 4 pictures from the shootout and we will provide you with a constructive critique. Along with the image critique, you will receive access to a private Facebook group for continued growth and support in a safe, learning environment. Our first Make it Click attendees seriously LOVE having the private group! You can read their reviews from the first workshop here!
