5 Days of Hands-On Portrait & Lighting Training with Kevin Kubota

Kevin Kubota 2018 Santa Fe Workshop
Have you ever been to Santa Fe, NM? Last year I went there for the first time to teach a class for the highly acclaimed Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. I was thoroughly impressed with not only the beauty and art in Santa Fe, but with the quality and attention to detail the school directors put in to everything that happens there. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had teaching anywhere!

This spring, I’ll be back again teaching a class called Lighting Made Simple. This is going to be a great class for any photographer looking for easy and elegant solutions to just about any lighting challenge. We’ll work with natural light, and easy-to-carry speedlights with versatile light modifiers, to beautifully illuminate whatever subject happens to sit before you.

At Santa Fe, we use a wide variety of stunning locations and patient models – so you will likely get some strong portfolio pieces from the work you do there with me. You’ll have ample opportunities to try and ingrain the techniques I’ll teach, and we’ll have daily reviews to keep you moving towards improvement.

Class size is kept small for lots of hands-on instruction. Interested in joining me? This could be just the working vacation you needed!

Our Italy Dolomites tour last year was so amazing, we just couldn’t wait to offer another one! The 2019 Italian Dolomites Adventure Tour is for anyone who loves non-stop breathtaking panoramic views of the Alps, riding e-bikes through mountain villages and trails, enjoying unique and delicious food and drink, hiking through glorious meadows filled with wildflowers that literally sing "The hills are alive…", gracious hospitality from local inn owners, and photographic treasures around every corner.

I got asked a REALLY crazy question...

Start your photo business over in 30 days

Hey friends,

Have you ever wondered if you could do it all over again, would you do it the same way? I mean, if you were to start your photo business from scratch, RIGHT NOW - what would you do to be successful? Maybe you’re in that situation now.

Sarah Petty asked me this question:

“If you had to start your business all over again, in a new city, with no website or social media followers, and make money in 30 days, what would you do?”

By golly, Watson, that’s an awesome question! Don’t you think?

It really got me thinking…and busy writing up a 30-day plan of attack. It was an amazing exercise and it seriously made me think about all the things I’ve done right over the years, and all the things I could have done differently. Fortunately, we learn from everything we do!

So I jumped on a video chat with Erin and spilled my beans for 30 minutes, so to speak.

AND, I wasn’t the only one to bare my soul, there were 24 other successful photographers also sharing their plans for a 30-day photo business jumpstart. What a gold mine.

I’m sharing my video HERE (for free) starting January 8th. Go watch it (and all the others)! ☺
