“I recently attended the Lauren Fair Cairnwood Estate Workshop, and am completely blown away at my experience! I have attended multiple workshops in the past and can say that this one has been the best hands down. Lauren and Tim are so caring and kind and the information they give is invaluable. They touched on every subject from email replies, websites, attracting the right clients, posing, pricing, film, and so much more! I cannot wait to implement everything I've learned. The classroom portion in itself was so worth it to me, but to top it all off we had the most insanely beautiful styled shoot afterward which is going to be such a beautiful addition to my portfolio. Lauren took us through each portion of the shoot and gave us information on her camera settings and how she directs her couples and it was awesome to see her in action! At the end of the day we were treated to a delicious candle-lit catered dinner where we got to converse and connect with her, Tim, and all of the other attendees. I am so happy and grateful that I attended her workshop and wish I could go to them all! If you are on the fence about attending a Lauren Fair workshop, my advice to you is to just do it! You won't be disappointed!"

"What an incredible and refreshing experience attending the Lauren Fair workshop. Lauren and her husband, Tim, were so welcoming and humble and were a complete open book for us to learn from. I loved the classroom portion where they taught us, but also showed us their actual work and process and help us completely understand. As a new film shooter, I had MANY questions, and they were always willing to answer with patience. My favorite part was the styled shoot. It was totally over the top with so much content to photograph. I love that this portfolio building experience had so many different options and I will have many new film images to showcase!"
Thank you for the incredible workshop. You were both amazing! You provided so much useful information and insight. I am in the midst of redoing my website and so many of your topics were beyond useful and helped me solidify some areas where I was unsure.
The styled shoot was absolutely stunning and what photography dreams are made of!!! Your direction to the attendees was fantastic and really helped it not feel overwhelming by the number of shooters. Thank you again for your warmth, knowledge and impeccable sense of taste." ~Laura Rose Photography
