I am so glad you found me friend! I'm Sharin Shank. Owner and lead photographer of Sharin Shank Photography. Not too long ago, I was in your shoes. I needed guidance and wanted to grow my business! However, it took me a while since I am fully self-taught. How would you LOVE to skip through a lot of the hard stuff and get the knowledge you are seeking? Wouldn't it be great?! I'm here for you! I believe in the power of sharing knowledge and want to help you grow as a wedding photographer. So pull up a chair and lets dive right in!
There is something so amazing about having a one-on-one conversation. I remember when I first started my business. I would google everything I needed to learn and watch hundreds of youtube videos. I am completely self-taught and went through many successes and failures along the way. Being a wedding photographer isn't just about the images. Its a business too. Over the last several years, I've grown an amazing wedding photography studio, have an amazing assistant photographer and my team is still growing. I love having a strong authentic brand that allows me to book with my ideal clients who also truly inspire me as a photographer and fulfill my creative soul. I believe in community over competition and the power of helping others succeed. I would love the opportunity to fill your mind and business with the right tools and the right conversations to help you grow towards your dreams as a wedding photographer. This may be in conversation or it may be through a styled shoot so you can learn hands on. Maybe you really need a mix of both. I'm excited to hear about your business and will offer my very best advice and teach you skills to help you grow your amazing wedding photography business.

The power of conversation...this is a no-topic-is-off-limits in depth conversation about 2-3 topics your really need help on. I don't want to scratch the surface with many topics but I really want to dive deep with you and share my heart, my business and the things I've learned along the way. You will leave with fresh ideas, the power of knowledge and a pdf review of everything we talked about.
This offering is exciting because we will use live models and photograph our hearts out. I will show you anything and everything I know about finding the best light, posing, using manual mode + kelvin, shooting for that beautiful light and airy image and more. Nothing is off limits. This session will be 2 hours and you will be able to keep your images to learn from them and to build your portfolio. You will also take away brand new head-shots from this session.
The combo mentoring session is the best offering. You will receive the 2 hour in depth mentor session along with a styled session with models. We will be hands on training for several hours then back to the studio for mimosas and great conversation! We can look through the images you took, edit them and start building a portfolio you love.
