    Take a dive into Lightroom and Photoshop to achieve many different tasks in your editing process and produce creative results in no time. We will venture into many areas of these two tools to change the way you work and create!


    "Since 2008, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and share my working knowledge of Lightroom and Photoshop with literally thousands of photographers from all over the world. Lightroom and Photoshop have become my tools and I have invested countless hours to learn these tools to better my business, my creativity and my profits. Sharing with others is part of what I love to do and that will never change. Pushing myself to find new ways and methods to make Photoshop and Lightroom work to my advantage and be more creative is an ongoing challenge that will continue with every release. Allow me to share all of this with you."

    Bree Adams  

    Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman, CPP

    Bree started as most photographers do in this new digital arena.  She bought a Canon Rebel and became an underpriced self-taught shoot and burn MWAC. (Mom with a Camera).  She was shooting in auto and buying presets and actions to make her photos magical while copying the style of photographers she admired.  She was booked solid around the clock and turning away clients and earning a huge paycheck of…practically nothing.

    Then something happened.  She realized there could be so much more to this photography journey with some education, finding her own niche and style, charging a respectable amount for what she offered and creating who she was as a photographer verses following the crowd and most importantly tapping emotion!

    Bree Adams evolved from a shoot and burn $85 per disk weekend warrior to a studio established and award winning photographer in 18 months specializing in the niche of Newborns and Modern Maternity.   Her average client going from $85 for a full disk to averaging $4000 for the same client and taking the print competition arena by storm and earning her Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman in just 2 years.

    Bree runs a successful studio bringing back the revival of maternity and newborn artistry.  Her newborn style consists of minimal props and distractions with pure focus on the beauty of posing and light from both organic to dramatic light.  Her maternity sessions step away from the frumpy “been there and done that” belly posing and traditional feel to a stylish and fresh approach that ranges from organic, to sexy and even timeless high-end art.

    Now Bree runs a fully booked studio in Historic Mansfield Texas.  In a short amount of time she has accomplished:

    • Photographer of the Year Dallas, 2016
    • Master of Photography
    • Photographic Craftsman
    • Certified Professional Photographer
    • Medaling all three years of IPC with PPA



    In this program she will take you through how she tore her entire business apart to start over and do it right.  Attendees will learn exactly how she runs her hybrid studio pricing, online marketing, new ways to market, how to think outside of the box to connect,  how to take their studio to a new level and how to accelerate any genre.

    Bry Cox - "Celebrity Style Imaging"

    PPA Master Photographer • PPA Photographic Craftsman • PPA Certified • Adobe Software Evangelist 

    Making our clients look and feel like celebrities, and adding a more creative and fashion style to our shoots is more crucial than ever. A high-end style that blends creativity and pro techniques is needed for an eye-grabbing portfolio, killer marketing images, and in helping you leave shoots confident that you have stronger images.

    Whether you shoot weddings, high school seniors, or families and children, I’ll help you light better in any environment, make women look great, create more variety while shooting fewer images, and be ninja-fast in your workflow.

    Come spend the day with me in San Antonio where we’ll cover three big areas: lighting, workflow, and high-end sales. We’ll start with lighting systems for perfectly nailing exposure and color balance – inside, on location, and with any brand of gear. We’ll talk about my three secrets to making women look amazing with light, as well as unique and higher-end lighting styles to make you stand out.

    All this means better images going into Photoshop than most people have coming out. And we’ll take those images even further with a clean and fast Adobe workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop. No matter how fast you are, I’ll make you faster. I’ll share tricks for fast culling and retouching so your images have a clean, crisp, expensive commercial look while also being more real and captivating.

    And we’ll cover how to sell these images for more money, how to best present them, and how to overcome common objections like price.
