I’m happy to announce that I’ll be teaching The Boudoir Photography Workshop Feb 14-15, 2015 at the Vancouver Photo Workshops.

Here’s the write up:

Want to build a successful Boudoir Photography Business? In this 2 day workshop, Daphne Chan will teach you step by step how to build an amazing high end experience for your clients-from marketing to your ideal clients and achieving high sales averages with your products and services.
Daphne invites you to her live/work New York-style loft studio to demonstrate lighting and posing techniques to flatter every body type. Each student will receive hands on coaching on posing the models and tips on how to create an atmosphere of trust and vulnerability with all clients. Our weekend will wrap with personalized image critiques for each student of images captured during the workshop. If you are new to boudoir, or already have a thriving boudoir business, you don’t want to miss this workshop!

Working knowledge of your DSLR camera, manual exposure controls (Shutter Speed, Aperture, & ISO) and white balance settings will be necessary for students to successfully navigate the practical sections of this workshop. Students should have basic knowledge of image composition.

Boudoir Workshop by Daphne Chan Feb 14-15, 2015

It’s happening again. It’s happened before so it feels familiar. It’s happened before so I can get through it. Every time I start a new project, there’s the excitement and creative joy that starts to veer towards…well, plainly put, good old fear. The gap between what I’m doing and what I want it to look and feel like. Something is missing. Something doesn’t quite fit yet. So do the work. And when you think something is done, do the work.

Have you ever heard of The Creative Gap by Ira Glass? The gist of Glass’s message for beginners — that grit is what separates mere good taste from great work, and that the only way to bridge the gap between ability and ambition is to actually do the work — is one that rings true for just about every creative discipline, and something I can certainly speak to in my own experience.

This plays on a loop in my mind:
