It was truly an amazing experience! It was a great balance of theory and hands on experience. I really enjoyed the Burroughes as the location for Day 2, it provided great backdrops of the city and had a rustic feel. Lisa surpassed my expectations – her passion, professionalism and patience was inspiring! Highly recommended
Where do I even begin. I have always been so scared of using anything but natural light for portrait work, I’ve always been scared of shooting out in the bright sun, and most of all, scared of doing night-time portraits of my clients. Whenever I got a request to do so from my clients I would internally freak out as I had no idea what to do! I always thought I would need super expensive equipment to wave my fears away; but boy was I wrong! Lisa’s workshop eliminated all those fears of mine, and boosted my confidence in ways I could not imagine. After attending the 2 day workshop, I feel more confident about my skills, and I cannot wait to use all those techniques in my upcoming shoots.
The price point, even though it may seem high in the beginning, is totally worth it as you progress through the workshop and learn the content Lisa covers in the lessons. She’s like an open book; totally transparent in how she teaches, and sharing her workflow process, and how it works out in the industry in general. I have invested a lot of money trying to learn lighting online, but there is nothing like an in-person mentoring and training. This is a perfect workshop to learn and build your skill set, and take your business to the next level.
Thank you Lisa for giving us our time and being patient with all our questions. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from you and hope to be as good as you some day!!
I was looking for a workshop that is similar to my style (Flash, Icelight, reflector, dramatic sky) since so many years, and i’m so glad i finally found Lisa Mark! I drove from Ottawa and It worth every single penny.
She’s a real open book, really patient with all those questions from the students, and kind.
I recommande this workshop, even for those who are more experienced!
I’ve been a natural light photographer for years and there is a part of me that has always been intimidated by artificial light. I didn’t have the confidence or knowledge base to experiment with flash, reflectors and other light sources so I avoided them.
Lisa Mark Photography’s From Day to Night Workshop has given me the knowledge and confidence to incorporate light in an artful, intentional way. I now no longer view light as something to battle with but rather, view it as a new tool to bring my photographic vision to life.
It’s been transformative.
I have followed Lisa’s work for awhile – I’ve always admired her blend of ambient and modified light to create images that are stunning and awe inspiring. Having been in the business for so long but being self taught – i think the course was an amazing form of validation about the way I do things in regards to how I run my business already and helped by adding a few new ideas. The technical side of the workshop was everything I was expecting and more – as other attendees mentioned – Lisa is an open book. She gives you feedback right away about how to help or if she likes what you are shooting. I have taken a few other lighting courses and found that they are overly technical which is difficult when you struggle already with the subject matter – I just found the way Lisa explained it was fantastic and clicked a lightbulb for me. The value of what you get out of the workshop is immeasurable – take it!
This was a great workshop, and I’d consider it a strong value for the price of admission. For 2 days we learned Lisa’s techniques for not only creative lighting, but also running her business, dealing with clients, handling products and sales. I was expecting to learn a great deal around lighting techniques but got so much more out of this. I would definitely recommend this workshop to other photographers looking to grow their business.
I can not say enough great things about Lisa and this amazing workshop! Lisa is pretty much an open book, she makes sure you understand and are comfortable with everything she is teaching. I had a couple weddings after the workshop, and I emailed her asking her advice and she was quick to respond and provide me with answers, both on the technique side of things as well as the business side of things. I am incorporating everything she has taught us into my business and I know it is going to improve my work, it already has! I also have to mention that the models and locations she had for the two day workshop were also amazing! She really made it a wonderful experience, and I am in love with the images I took. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone even remotely thinking about it! Thanks Lisa!!
Taking this workshop will change the way you run your business and will definitely make you stand out amongst the rest. I highly recommend taking this two day course and learning from such an experienced photographer like Lisa. She really gets in depth with her lessons to ensure you understand the content. Throughout the two days, she was always there to answer questions or personally help you with your gear during the shooting portion of the workshop. Take this workshop!!! You wont regret it!
From Day-to-Night workshop by Lisa Mark Photography was such a life changing experience. I loved and enjoyed every single hour spent at this workshop. I would definitely recommed this to anyone that might be interested in attending a photography workshop in the nearest future. Thank you Lisa for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us.
From Day to Night teaches everything I never learned in any other workshop! Lisa has a rare skill set and a wild ability to create radiant portraits in every lighting condition, from full afternoon sun to deep twilight. In her workshop, she generously shares her knowledge and expertise and offers support and encouragement as she guides you through the technical and creative aspects of her practice. I would highly recommend this fabulous workshop. I would also like to add that I chose to hire Lisa as my own wedding photographer, so to learn from her four years after my wedding was a true honour and a pleasure.
Lisa Mark Photography’s Day to Night Workshop has been a career changing experience!!! I absolutely LOVE that we had an opportunity to photograph at one of the most stunning locations in all of Toronto (hand picked by Lisa herself) and that Lisa taught us personally not one but so many different types of lightning techniques and tricks, it was amazing! To further maximize our experience she also had additional photographers there to assist us and answer any questions or challenges we might have, it was almost like a one on one class! Combined with a full day of in class theory and learning, my rating of Lisa Marks Workshop is nothing short of AH-MAZING!!
