Rebel Exposed is about establishing photography goals and accomplishing greater success together as creatives.  We will teach you the rules and then encourage you to break them. We created this mentorship and workshop for all levels of photography, if you are a beginner, a bloggers, a traveler that wants to capture nice pictures along your journey, you’re ready to turn a hobby into a revenue, or simply want to improve in certain areas of photography… either way we got you! While understanding we have all made mistakes, questioned our business direction, our goal is to deliver a jaw-dropping experience, total transparency and next level education. We created Rebel Exposed with the photographer in mind that wants to learn more about the business of Photography, expand their knowledge of natural light to studio photography, and to hone in on bettering their retouching skills.

WORKSHOP

ABOUT

Rebel Exposed is a 2-day workshop with a small group of amazing creatives coming together to learn the fundamentals of Branding, the Business of Photography, Lighting, and Retouching. 

THE EXPERIENCE

Through this workshop, you will become a more versatile photographer who will master various lighting set ups like a boss, and learn to mold light to the vision in your head. This is studio lighting, no holds barred.The workshop is intended for those who have experience shooting with a professional DSLR camera and who are familiar with shooting in manual mode.  Be sure you are familiar with aperture, ISO, shutter speed and how to adjust these settings on your camera.  We will discuss the white balance settings we use and how we setup the camera and lighting for each session. 

 


DAY 1

Drea Nicole will share basic lighting techniques that have become essential to her style, career and success as a photographer. While she regularly uses these techniques in her work, she will demonstrate how these same setups can be utilized to inject excitement into your own work! Whether you shoot portraits, boudoir, maternity or really any other sort of portrait work, these tools and techniques can help you create results that wow your clients and help you stand out from the competition. She will discuss modifiers, light placement, gear and much more to help you use these setups successful in your own work! Drea will teach the most valuable lighting setups being used in studios today, all delivered in a clear, simple to understand method.

A professional makeup artist and model will be provided for you to shoot, and to add images to your portfolio.

DAY 2

Learn in-depth techniques for retouching images to perfection, helping your clients look their best, and expressing your creative vision! Whether retouching skin, whitening teeth or reshaping body features, using Adobe Photoshop allows you to perfect. In this workshop portrait and beauty photographer Drea Nicole will cover essential retouching techniques and teach how to make the impossible possible! Drea will cover various techniques: creating flawless skin, improving colors, adding textures, adding makeup, and dozens of other techniques you can apply to your own photography.

TESTIMONIALS

 

  • “Drea Nicole is one of the best photographers I’ve met. Her work speaks for itself. Not only is she an amazing photographer but, she has an even more beautiful spirit. I had the wonderful opportunity of job shadowing her for 2 days while I was in Atlanta and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. When I tell you that Drea is one of the most down to earth, humble people I’ve had the chance to meet, please believe it. Drea is awesome with her clients. She makes them feel very comfortable and tends very well to their individual photography needs. I would highly recommend Drea Nicole Photography to anyone. Not only will she deliver high quality work, but you’ll have an awesome experience as well. Thanks Drea for letting me shadow you and for taking my head shots as well. You are amazing inside and out and I appreciate your generosity. Keep up the great work! ♡♡”

I told her my vision and she is helping me achieve my dream. I really appreciate all the support she has given to me. She also took my headshots and she was so easy to work with and the headshots came out beautifully.”
