Two days. Six models. Nine photographers. No naps. Right in the heart of Huntsville, Texas, this is not a workshop for hobby photographers or folks looking for a relaxing retreat. We’ve put the “work” back in “workshop” and designed an intensive senior photography training experience focused on improving skills and developing business solutions to take you and your business to the next level of awesome. During your time at KSW, we will work from 9 am to around Midnight for two days of hands-on senior photoshoots, makeup and hair demonstrations, and in-depth discussions on everything from pricing to editing to branding. We. Do. Work.
