CREATIVE STUDIO MASTERCLASS
with Photographer and Gateless Writing teacher Melisine Alegre
June 29 - July 28 2020
Go at your own pace
Participate in as little as 20 minutes a week
Watch the magic of your creativity unfold
I created a special Creative Studio experience for you!
Designed to make it super easy and fast
for you to learn new skills and styles.
I distilled years of knowledge into 10 minute bite-site lessons that you can use and apply whenever you want.
You'll have these skills forever.
It’s unlike anything I’ve ever offered before.
This is a one-of-a-kind class!
Learn different photography styles, techniques, and history.
Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to create new and exciting images!
Expand your confidence, and refine your voice and style!
CHOOSE YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHIC ADVENTURE!
Each week you will get to choose from 3 different Photography Genres or Techniques to explore.
Each genre or technique will have a PDF with a quick lesson, famous photography examples, step by step tips, and 10 minute creativity prompts for your writing and photography.
Here are some photography genres that Melisine will explain step by step:
ANIMALS / PETS
ASTRO / STARS/ NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
FASHION / BEAUTY
DOCUMENTARY / PHOTOJOURNALISM
SELF PORTRAIT IDEAS (as always)
ACTION / MOVEMENT / DANCE
ENCOURAGEMENT, INSPIRATION, and COMMUNITY
Each week there will also be Live Calls for Q&A and Show-and-Tell which will be posted on Facebook and email. Optional: share your work and receive Gateless style feedback.
Throughout the course you will have access to an additional library of How-To Videos from Mel and Media Strategy Experts.
Here are some How-To topics that Melisine will explain in slower, step-by-step videos so you can follow along!
- Phone Editing
- Double exposures
Easy Photoshop Techniques
Remove objects + blemishes, whiten teeth, etc.
As always, you will have access to a Nurturing Facebook community (with experienced Academy students) and a Non-Judgmental, Safe Space to Share and Be Seen and Heard.
You can choose how involved you want to get.
Our only live events will be Q&A calls. This is self-paced and a “creative studio class” -- art-making at its finest. Do as much or as little as you’d like.
I am a pro photographer and Gateless writing teacher who helps clients creatively express their soulful and genuine selves.
I help clients feel seen first within themselves, then in their writing and images. My website is melisinestudio.com.
My intention is for you to develop skills to feel confident showing who you are and making memorable images.
We will go beyond typical photography classes, utilizing my extensive experience with coaching, media strategy, healing, art therapy, mindset, and personal growth work.
"Working with Melisine is a gift from the Universe.
She has the ability to shine her light into your world and capture the magic of you with writing and photos.
Melisine's playful, yet serious approach invites you into a safe space to explore deep creative self-expression.
I highly recommend working with her regardless of your comfort level with writing or a camera."
Elisha Starr - Therapist
Melisine is one of those rare finds, a photographer of extraordinary talent who infuses each image with a quality of light that allows for unprecedented beauty. Because she has worked for such high end brands, she knows how to both stage and position the coveted shots you have always wanted that can move your ideas and your brand to the next level.
She focuses on a different beauty than you are used to, finding your inner power and ethereal light in an extraordinary process of listening and reflection. She brings out the beauty and light in every single situation! And every person!
I LOVED this course!!
I recommend this class to anyone who is afraid to show up online, or who wants to love it or who wants to take photos but "doesn't know how" or who wants to find a creative release, have a blast and remember the power of what art really is.
Suzanne Kingsbury, founder of Gateless Writing, Inc.
If it calls to your heart -
or piques your wonder and curiosity -
Leap and say YES!
- Karen Kenney, Inspirational Speaker and Writer
Take your photography to the next level!
Consider the lifetime value of improving your photography and attracting your dream clients so you can do more of what you love.
Consider the value of learning how to better plan and take your own photos so your voice and images can be unified, amplified, and aligned.
Learn to think like a pro photographer, and build your confidence quickly. You are paying for speed, so you don't have to spend time "figuring it out" -- you can just start being creative!
This is much less than the price of ONE photoshoot or coaching session with Melisine, and the skills and benefits you will gain will last far longer than one session.
