For the cost of one dress rental (with shipping), you can walk away with a new portfolio of

images to attract high-end clients

Well, I will already be in Dallas Texas teaching a full two-day Workshop (now sold out, but taking a waitlist). Already have the barn rented, the sets, props, wardrobe, and hairstylist ... why not add in a shootout day?

I hear from photographers all the time, "I love the big dresses, but it's expensive to both rent AND ship ..." And I get it.

So let me solve the problem for you.

How does 20+ new couture gowns sound? No need to hire hair and makeup, I've assembled a fabulous team that I've worked with before with beautiful results. No need to gather up models, I have them all booked.

You literally just show up during your allotted time, shoot, and begin editing your newly captured images.

Relaxed shooting environment

Photographers will be shooting in very small groups and rotating the sets until everyone has been captured.

Then, we will have a 30 minute "free shoot" where photographers are free to move as they please to capture something they may have missed or spend more time one-on-one with a particular model.

Yes, it is possible at my events to have one-on-one time with a favorite model.

Dresses for sale

Another benefit to attending the Shootout is I'll have dresses and props for sale. I'll be taking a few years off from teaching Workshops (and no more planned Shootouts) so I will want to off-load some of my collection.

The dresses available for sale will be in the waiting area when you arrive for the Shootout and one of my assistants can help you make your purchase.

Magical Touches

Styling is everything. I'll have my four racks of clothing, 100+ hair accessories, jewelry, on hand to create beautifully styled sets and models.

If you've wanted to shoot with angel wings, now is your chance to add these heavenly pieces to your portfolio. They just must be experienced.

Some sets will be light + airy, some will be darker and moodier with a variety of backdrops -- not just the white barn background. You can choose what you are drawn to or what goes with your branding.


What if i can no longer attend?

All payments are non-refundable, however, you are welcome to sell your seat to another photographer.

Contact me as soon as you know you cannot attend as I may have a wait list for those who wish to attend.

Who can attend a Shootout?

Any photographer is welcomed whether the seasoned pro, just getting started or hobbyist.

Can I use the images I take online?

Yes, of course, you may use the images for your business website, portfolio, and social media. This is a great way to promote your own fine-art limited edition sessions, etc. for your business without the hassle of assembling it all yourself.

How Do I get there?

The location is in the very small town of Ponder, TX -- Denton TX is your best bet to find a hotel if you need lodging. Lodging runs from $65 and up. Most attendees stay at the Best Western or Hampton. It is a 20 minute drive (give or take) to Ponder.

What airport should I fly into?

The Dallas International Airport is your best choice. It is a 35-minute drive from the airport to Ponder, TX where the shootout will be held. I am not local, so I don't know if traffic should be factored in so keep that in mind.

Where is the Shootout Location?

The shootout will be held April 28th at The Nest Barn at Ruth Farms in Ponder, Texas. A beautiful natural light barn. I taught a workshop there last year and the space is simply gorgeous and wonderfully kind + helpful staff.
