Nomad Workshops


Nomad workshops and shootouts are curated for beginners, seasoned photographers and other wedding vendors interested in adventure and learning.  We want to offer an affordable way to learn more, make a community, get content and have fun. Oh, yeah and not have to do any of the heavy lugging, coordinating or tough BEHIND THE SCENES work because we are doing it all for YOU. Trust me, we are only doing it because  we are getting paid. Aren’t you as tired as us? Doing all this leg work for hopes to get blogged and have a few pics to use. Now you can sit back and enjoy the perks (and the coffee).

Weather you're looking to fill your portfolio with trendy new content, update your website, learn a few new tricks or get out and meet other like minded creatives, Nomad is the perfect opportunity.

What is a Nomad Workshop?  Our workshops are a place for all who need help taking photos of their work and peps just looking for rad content/ stock photos. At our workshop we will have two hours dedicated to speakers giving the inside view from their perspective in the industry, pricing, booking clients, and so much more. During our workshops we will have 3 set up and ready to go shootouts. We will include all three meals, great freebies, and a ton of usable and ahead of the trend  content. Don’t forget one on one experience to learn from our hosts and speakers.

What is a Nomad Shootout? A shootout is a styled or themed session that provides hands on learning for anyone who wants to learn . You will need to have your own camera and an open mind. Shoot as you please!

We will have at our first Workshop/shootout is 3 sets, 1 styled coupled including hair, makeup and wardrobe, 1 tablescape and 1 solo editorial style bride. Plus Ash + Oak will be bringing every prop she has in stock for you play around with and create flat lays. Ashley will guide and teach you cool easy tricks to make your flat lay Vogue ready. Each attendee will have the opportunity to shoot each subject in their own creative way with plenty of time.  We will have so much to do at all times there won’t be any standing around unless you feel like taking a break.

Our location is chosen by the lovely Nomad Team and are different every time.

SHOOTOUT DATE:  May 18th, 2019

LOCATION: The Shootout will take place within the Bay Area. Exact location will be shared with attendee's 1 week before the shootout date (due to weather we like to keep it open) Trust us it will be beautiful and wild. We will supple travel to and from each location. Please bring layers as it may get cold, come on guys it’s the Bay you should already know this. The day will start around 10am and end at 9pm. We will be meeting for coffee and tea in the morning to meet everyone and get on the same page. Once we have all arrived and settle in we will have our first speaker talk a little about the Industry. These tropics range from pricing, vendor community, locations, Instagram and so much more.

After our great discussion we will load up and head out. At the location are models will be waiting for you! NO waiting around for hair and makeup we will ready to go.  You can enjoy taking great photos and snacking on the lunch we provide for you throughout the day.

During this amazing day we will ask you to put your camera down and step in front of our camera. Diana will be taking headshots for your personal use. You can never have too many headshots or pics for your Instagram.
