A Look At One Of The Tutorials That Come With Your Workshop

If you are interested in going, you can put down a partial deposit now at the Fstoppers Workshops site. You can also save quite a bit of money by bunking up with a roommate to split the cost of the room, which is substantially discounted becuase we are booking with such a large group.

I'm not going to lie. This is a considerable investment on your part but also a really great step for your career. If you are serious about making photography your full time job or taking your business to a whole new level of quality and operations, Rob and our team at PRO EDU will spend the entire week making sure you are getting what you came for. The best part of this whole expereince is that we are giving you a $1,000 gift certificate to PRO EDU where you can purchase 3 tutorials on Editorial Food Photography (out now), Product Photography (March 2015), and beverage photography (summer 2015). These intense workshops are 15+ hours of pre-production, interviews, interactive guides, pricing & markeing podcasts, hours of photo shoots on-location for real clients, and Photoshop retouching where we take the concepts you learned and bring them to life with high-end retouchers.

Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you have any reservations about this trip. Rob and I are available for Skype calls, Direct Phone Calls, Chats, SMS's, iMessage, Telegrams, Western Unions, Pen Pals, Sticky Notes, Snow Angels, and Trust Falls.

I love watching Rob work...I saw him on CreativeLIve and ended up purchasing his course. The vision and attention to detail is top notch. I love how these new all encompass tutorials are done now a days, really impressive. Definitely on my shopping list for this year.

Thanks David for both picking up the CL course and noting what we are doing with RGG EDU. Tutorials should take you on-location in real jobs as if you're right there assisting, which is what we're trying to do with our tutorials. Furthermore we take it a step further with our approach to the pre-production, multiple photo shoots, and everything in post. Our tutorials take you through the entire process like no other tutorials do.---Cheers

Really been debating on this class for a while now, and I think I'm going to pull the trigger and reserve my spot in one of the classes. And like you said it's a big investment but I mean I'm also series in pursuing this field as my career.

So now it's a matter of figuring out what class to take and how much ramen I'll have to eat, but I bet it will be worth it.

Austin. To put a few things in persecutive for you of 2 students who attended last year. One photographer took our class who had absolutely NO expereince in product/still life photography and who only shot people. I got a note from him a few weeks ago saying that one of his biggest jobs of last year was product photography for bigger local companies.

The second story I will say is that we had a participant last year from Brazil who took both of our classes. He was already an amazing photographer/retoucher and took the class and was still able to learn quite a bit. He just recently moved to St. Louis and is now working for Rob Grimm full time in our studio.

Point being that this is both a great networking event and also an amazing opportunity to add something like studio product/food photography to your knowledge so when you do meet a client that needs product, you will know exactly how to approach the job. light the job, and deliver a great product.

Hope that helps and we look forward to seeing you down there!
