Style Sessions: New San Francisco Workshops!

Heather Bullard | Style Sessions

For the past few years, I’ve aspired to teach workshops here in the US for those who may be unable to travel to France, but have a strong desire to learn how to style professional visuals that reflect their brand and connect with their following. My objective in creating new workshops was simple; to design one-day intensive sessions that focus solely on styling exceptional images. This first series of workshops in the San Francisco area will kick off my plans of extending them across the nation in the coming year. I hope to see you at one!

In my experience, great photo styling has the proven ability to propel brands, sell product, and establish loyal followers. Whether you create content for your blog or website, have a small product-based business, or are an avid social media user wanting to up your style game, Style Sessions will help you create breathtaking images that will convey your brand’s mission and captivate your audience. These in depth, one-day workshops concentrate on the secret styling techniques and methods that I call upon for every editorial photoshoot and brand project. My goal is to help you become more confident with your work.

I hope you will join me and other creatives for an intensive, one-day Style Session and discover the secret styling techniques and expert methods needed to create stunning visuals for your brand, online presence, or small business. You’ll learn to Prop with a Pro™ through a detailed lecture, hands-on practice, and live styling demonstration. Our inspiring location, Elsie Green, will lend us gorgeous props for the day! Also included: morning coffee & pastries, delicious lunch, and workshop notes. While our lesson doesn’t focus on learning the mechanics of your camera, we ask that you bring one in order to visualize your work through the lens.

Today’s the day! New dates for The Academy – France are set and registration is NOW OPEN!

The Academy – Dordogne, France – May 19-25, 2018

I’m happy to announce that once again, we will be heading to the Dordogne region of France next spring to host another Styling & Photography Workshop for Creatives. During our week together we will immerse ourselves in the French lifestyle while we wander the local food markets, browse an annual brocante in search of props, and walk the ancient cobblestone streets of medieval villages.

Our workshop sessions will be focused on learning to style with intention and documenting our journey through the art of photography. In essence, all of my favorite things to do while in France!

The Academy France | Styling Sessions

Heather Bullard | Academy France Styling After our successful day gathering props at the brocante, we were ready to begin utilizing those finds in our styling sessions. In addition to what everyone found for their own prop collections, I set up a table with an assortment of small dishes, linens, fresh produce, herbs and spices, and beautiful artisanal bread.

Our first few mornings at The Academy begin with lectures on the proper techniques and aspects of styling. Starting with the fundamentals, the attendees are able to understand the how & why behind creating stunning that resonate meaning and convey the vision they wish to express. They are then able to implement those concepts and skills as they continue to practice throughout the week. But more importantly, upon returning home, they will have an arsenal of techniques to apply in their own body of work and creative pursuits.
