😡Frustrated with dull and same ‘ol images, run out of ideas to paint a beautiful story for your products?

🙀Or tired of stock images used by many other businesses (or worse, by your competitors), diluting ur brand?

🤔Hope for a quick turn-around, up-to-date images but too troublesome and expensive to get shots done by professionals?

What about learning the tips and tricks on styling, shooting and editing by yourself, USING YOUR MOBILE PHONE! 📱📱

Selling your designs, products and services online? Want to increase your success rate?

Create photos that sell for you, with minimal skills or no photo studio!

If you sell online, this workshop is for you where you turn normal products into great looking ones even if you don’t know how to style or don’t have professional gears. A great picture makes a GREAT difference! Look around you and see a multitude of pictures online that do no justice to the brand, product or services. For online businesses, images matter to make or break a sale.

 

Day Session

At this workshop, learn to create photographs that help you sell. Turn ordinary products into great looking ones with creative styling, then shoot and edit with your smartphone before uploading onto social media. The experiential activities let you explore various formats for visual storytelling with different props and backdrop, achieving results that will bring you from raw state to insta-fame.

Evening Session

An express pop-up workshop that goes straight to the heart of creative styling and captivating photography with your smartphone. Great images can reinforce your branding and help increase your sales. Using accelerated learning in a small class setting, you will experience hands-on activities and have a go at styling and shooting your products. With close guidance, you pick up skills and knowledge of visual storytelling, and at the end of the workshop, your edited shot can be ready to upload online.

What’s in it for you?

How do the pictures help you to sell? Use visual storytelling through two synergistic components of creative styling and captivating photography to get you likes, followers and buyers, a boost to the business. These pictures convey a message, more than a thousand words. Use them for content creation, too.

Explore styling formats with storytelling props. Master skills and techniques with smartphones and technology for easy phonetography.

Kok Wai really understands the challenges and needs of SMEs. I have the privilege of being his client. He made me see things I could not see, in the way that is non-threatening. The advice and guidance he helped me do and provided me with were very good. I am engaging him again for something else related to web content. He is really good!!! And I mean it, cos someone said that last week too!!

FAQs

1. Compare to some workshops, this looks expensive

We understand how you feel.
We know there are cheaper or even free ones (like Apple’s or Canon or Nikon).

They are fine.

What makes us different is, we each have at least 14 years in our respective industry. (styling and photography)

Della is a Visual Merchandiser and consultant based in Melbourne, her clients include:
Givenchy, FJBenjamin, Triumph, Popular, Bata Regional, Manhattan Fish Market, Wildlife Reserves Group, Fuji Xerox, Orchard Central, Carrie K, Singapore Retailers Association, Moto World and more.

Kok Wai has shot products for Nike, HP, Sony, BP De Silva, World of Watches, a few ad agencies, a cookbook, many local magazines and many more.

So we are not just trainers per se. We are practitioners who like to share.
What we share are tried and tested hacks.

Sometimes we let loose a few trade secrets without knowing 😐

With the hands-on, we don’t just leave you to explore, but help to set up and troubleshoot individual product shoot.

In short, participants like yourself are getting pro help at a fraction of the pro fees.
Like a group tuition 🙂

 

2. What’s so different about the workshop?

First, we encourage participants to bring their products so the hands-on will make sense to them. We had people bringing hand bags, tee shirts, jewelries, and even a helmets plus motocycle racing suit!

Second, you’ll have 2 professionals helping you with your shoot, on a proper studio set up.

Third, you’ll bring home battlefield tested checklist and notes so you’ll know what to do when you are ready to do your shoot.

Next, Della will share with all, how to find suitable props without cringing at the price tags.

One more… we have follow-through access after the workshop!
