Unforgettable Senior Photography (Krista Campbell)
Limited Capacity seats available

Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Krista uses a Canon 5D Mark III and Canon lenses including: 16-35L, 24-70L, 70-200L, 85L, 100L, and 200L.

Join Krista Campbell on this Golden Hour Shooting Experience and learn not only how to naturally pose senior girls but also how to utilize amazing backlighting in your photographs to create impactful images. You will learn to manipulate light with both natural and purchased reflectors, while becoming more comfortable posing seniors (including important details such as what to do with those hands!). Using a senior girl, Krista will demonstrate how she runs her senior sessions to produce elegant, natural-looking senior photos.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn camera settings for backlight and how to work with backlight.
2. Pose clients to utilize the sun to your advantage and create magical, dreamy images.
3. Learn to manipulate light using natural and purchased reflectors.
4. Learn tips and tricks for how to pose your subjects in ways that will result in elegant, natural-looking senior portraits.

Mission San Jose:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at Mission San Jose (just a short 15 minute bus ride from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1720, and known as the "Queen of the Missions," San Jose is the showpiece of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and tells the early story of San Antonio and European expansion in the New World.

The grounds of Mission San Jose is a huge area (over six acres inside the gates) that gives you ample room to photograph kids and families at play. The walls provide great framing opportunities, with many windows and doors all around the perimeter. There are also several stone walls (without doors and windows) if you are looking for plain stone backdrops. You’ll also find some interesting arches next to the church and at the entrance - they, along with the repeating doors and windows, give you the opportunity to use repeating elements in your composition. There are a few big trees throughout, but in many areas you’ll see the wide open sky. You’ll be able to use the walls to help you stay in the shade (if that’s what you are after) or partially block the sun. Because the Mission is massive and is outside of the city, you’ll find plenty of space for shooting outside of the walls as well. The outdoor grounds of Mission San Jose have been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors. There will be a wedding rehearsal going on inside the Mission San Jose Church, so we ask that you remain on the expansive outdoor grounds rather than venturing inside the church.

Sun-Kissed Teen and High School Senior Portraits (Holli True)
Limited Capacity seats available

Holli is sponsored by ShootProof
https://www.shootproof.com/

Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Holli uses a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon lenses including: 50mm 1.2L, 85mm 1.8.

Learn how to capture gorgeous, natural light and feature it as an important element within your images. Join Holli True in this interactive evening shoot and learn how backlighting, sunflare, and bokeh can take your photography to new heights. You'll learn how to achieve soft, buttery lighting in your images, while maintaining emphasis on your subject. Holli will share her secrets as you chase the sun and photograph a senior girl using nothing more than a reflector during this natural light shoot.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to achieve beautiful backlighting.
2. Learn how to capturing sunflare.
3. Learn how to capture bokeh.
4. Learn how to hold and use a reflector when you shoot on your own.

This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the Alamo (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1724 as Mission San Antonio de Valero – the first mission in San Antonio – the Alamo is known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" and is the number one tourist destination in Texas.  

The Alamo has two distinct features— the buildings/walls and the lush greenery. Access to the buildings and walls is fairly easy from outside the Alamo itself or at several points inside the gates. The greenery provides full or partial coverage, allowing you to play with the amount of natural light as well as the direction. Even though you’ll be able to see other photographers due to the layout of the Alamo, you’ll find that creative use of the greenery can give a very private, or “Secret Garden,” feel to your images. There are several benches at a number of places within the walls. If you head outside the gates, you’ll find a bigger common area and more bright, unobstructed sunlight. The Alamo has been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors if you plan to remain inside the gates near the Alamo gardens.

Field Trip - Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard (Styled Shoot and Dinner)
Limited Capacity seats available

MEET AT 4:30 AT MARRIOTT BUS DEPARTURE ZONE.
Join us for this premium field trip which will include shooting styled models, a delicious gourmet dinner, and time to socialize while experiencing the natural beauty of Texas!

The beautiful Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard (https://www.sandyoaks.com/) will be the setting for an evening of shooting with a variety of styled models and photography leaders, as well as dinner and time to socialize while strolling the grounds of this beautiful olive orchard ranch. No matter what genre you shoot or where you are on your photography journey, you will cherish this time to put into practice everything that you learned at Click Away, spend time with new and old friends, and shoot styled models in a gorgeous and unique location unlike what most of us get to experience back home.

The schedule and lineup includes styled shooting from 5:30pm-7:30pm (during gorgeous golden hour light!) with the following leaders and model groups:

Senior girl - led by Monica Wilkinson
Mother and daughter - led by Kellie Bieser
Sisters - led by Kristy Dooley
Brothers - led by Kristin Dokoza 
Couple - led by Michelle Turner

Models will be styled to help ensure that you shoot stunning, portfolio quality images that look amazing! Attendee numbers will be kept low (just 53 total, so approximately 10 per model group at any given time) so that you get ample opportunity to rotate through and photograph each of the model groups. The Olive Orchard offers many shooting locations and backdrops to create a variety of imagery, all during stunning golden hour light, so you can walk away with gorgeous, varied, and truly unique photos. After the styled shoot, we'll sit down for dinner, wine, and socializing (which is sure to include new connections, forming of friendships, and lots of laughter!). Food and beverages will include:

- A seasonal garden salad fresh from Sandy Oak's garden
- Chicken Puttanesca with Polenta (Puttanesca is an Italian tomato sauce with olives and capers)
- Olive Oil Cake Parfait with pomegranate, strawberry sauce with whipped cream
- Two glasses of Fall Creek Wine (Choice of red or white)
- Plus, bread, water, iced tea and coffee

About Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard:
One of the first commercial olive orchards in Texas, Sandy Oaks is 20 minutes south of San Antonio. While best known for the olive trees, olive oil and the various olive oil and olive leaf based skin care products it produces, Sandy Oaks is also celebrated for its emphasis on hospitality and educating the public on the benefits and various uses of olive oil. The main orchard itself covers a 40-acre tract of the ranch, with some 11,000 trees planted among the massive live oaks dotting the property. A nursery holds up to 10,000 or more olive seedlings and shoots at any one time. Sandy stocks the trees to expand her orchard and to sell to others who would like to join in the adventure of growing olive trees. 

Seating/Participation is very limited for the special premium field trip with styled shooting so reserve your spot before it is sold out!
