Introducing our first ever workshop led by legendary outdoor and commercial photographer Forrest Mankins.

Take a look through even just a handful of his photographs, and it immediately becomes apparent that Forrest has developed a distinctly personal style. While our previous workshops have all focused on the essential skills needed to capture a moment, this one sets out to show you how to actually create one.

In this deep dive into the way Forrest views the world, you’ll learn his strategies and high-level vision that will help you elevate your work to the next level.

From forming a creative concept from scratch, to finding shoot locations near your home, to confidently directing subjects — you’ll learn how to take the vision you have in your head and put it into your photography.

This is where developing your own unique style as an artist begins.
