WORKSHOP

Given today's image-filled society, it's more important than ever to feature the right images in order to market to your dream client.

But getting those images isn't always easy.

Location - Guestlands

CHOOSING THE WORKSHOP
THAT'S BEST FOR YOU

Perhaps you're a newer film photographer who is interested in a workshop to build your portfolio.

Perhaps you're interested in switching from a digital medium to a film/hybrid one and want to learn more about how to take beautiful, fine art images.

Or, perhaps you want to learn more about what makes a photo truly timeless.

But with so many photography workshops to choose from...most of which focus solely on digital photography or require you to fly thousands of miles and spend thousands of dollars...it's challenging to know which one is the best one for your brand.

WHY THIS WORKSHOP?

​​​​​This workshop is focused on capturing the bright and classic style of photography.

We specifically designed it to teach you how to:


ELEVATE YOUR STYLE
REFINE YOUR BRAND
BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO

Ultimately, if you want to attract the calibre of clients you dream of... 
This workshop is for you.

Meet your host 

host and lead photographer

I first discovered film photography in high school. But it wasn't until becoming a professional photographer that I became obsessed with it.
I sought to learn everything I could about film. And discovered there weren't a lot of opportunities to learn from great mentors here in Australia.
So, I decided it was time to change that. 
By creating this workshop, I hope to share with you what I've learned over my 7-years using film. And to help you perfect your craft as a photographer.

WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

“NOT ONLY DO YOU GET TO WORK AND NETWORK WITH OTHER CREATIVES, BUT SHERI GIVES YOU AMAZING SUPPORT, GUIDANCE AND VALUABLE CONTENT THAT I CAN AUTOMATICALLY USE IN MY BUSINESS STRAIGHT AWAY!”

Sheri went to extraordinary efforts to provide such a well organised and perfectly timed shoot. Most organised shoots I have attended have not been so well organised or engaging. Sheri offered great advice and inspired me to spend more time shooting creatively alongside, offering great ideas for social content. Sheri’s relaxed approach made the day flow perfectly. The location, model, makeup, hair, flowers and dresses all perfectly blended to create a beautiful, fresh and modern look. Sheri was so engaging, offering advice and sharing professional tips along the way. I would highly recommend investing in the Portfolio Building Workshop with Sheri McMahon. Not only do you get to work and network with other creatives, but Sheri gives you amazing support, guidance and valuable content that I can automatically use in my business straight away! Thank you for an amazing day and for going beyond my expectations

“the content, relationships and opportunity to meet others are going to help me increase and take my business to the next level”

Sheri exceeded my expectations. Sheri was a lovely host, motivating, patient and willing to share her knowledge and expertise. Sheri was forthcoming with ideas and suggestions on how to get the most from your shots. I felt inspired and supported throughout the whole day and was comfortable asking questions. The content, relationships and opportunity to meet others are going to help me increase and take my business to the next level – something you can’t put a price tag on! I would highly recommend Sheri McMahon Photography and this workshop. Being exposed to like minded people and vendors chosen by Sheri, were exceptional. Sheri went above and beyond delivering this workshop and I am so thankful to have been involved in this experience!

"Your passion and love for photography shine through everything you do."

“Where would I even begin to thank someone as amazing as you. I still can't believe I was part of this wonderful workshop. Your passion and love for photography shine through everything you do. Thank you for sharing all your years of knowledge and experience with us. Thank you for all your hard work planning this inspiring workshop! I can't wait to attend the next one. Plus I can't believe I took these gorgeous images.”


- Zinette

“Sheri‌ ‌definitely‌ ‌delivered‌ ‌what‌ ‌she‌ ‌said‌ ‌she‌ ‌would‌ ‌and‌ ‌more.‌ ‌She‌ ‌thought‌ ‌down‌ ‌to‌ ‌th‌e‌ ‌smallest‌ ‌detail.‌ ‌She‌ ‌even‌ made‌ ‌sure‌ ‌the‌ ‌models‌ ‌she‌ ‌chose‌ ‌were‌ ‌a‌ ‌suitable‌ ‌fit‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌aesthetic,‌ ‌which‌ ‌ensured‌ ‌we‌ ‌could‌ ‌capture‌ ‌images‌ that‌ ‌would‌ ‌reflect‌ ‌a‌ ‌true‌ ‌wedd‌ing‌ ‌day.‌ ‌
It‌ ‌was‌ ‌clearly‌ ‌evident‌ ‌that‌ ‌her‌ ‌vision‌ ‌was‌ ‌well‌ ‌related‌ ‌to‌ ‌her‌ ‌chosen‌ ‌vend‌ors‌ ‌as‌ ‌every‌ ‌part‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌workshop‌ ‌was‌ ‌pulled‌ ‌together‌ ‌seamlessly‌ ‌as‌ ‌if‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌real‌ ‌w‌edding‌ ‌day!‌ ‌Sheri‌ ‌went‌ ‌above‌ and‌ ‌beyond‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌sure‌ ‌we‌ ‌had‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌experience‌ ‌an‌d‌ ‌delivered‌ ‌and‌ ‌exceeded‌ ‌my‌ ‌expectations‌ ‌on‌ ‌every‌ level.‌”
