Real Photographers. Real Families. Practical Education for your photography business!

Hey you! We are so glad you are here checking out our latest US in person workshops! We hope our tagline resonates with you. If you are tired of the photographers with big ol' egos and one perfectly groomed model after the next, you are in the right place! Our workshops are not about us, they are about YOU and running a successful (and sustainable) photography business.

Spend a day with Leah and Anne immersed in photography and learning in the northwest suburbs of Chicago at Anne's indoor and outdoor studio!
Anne Kerr (Chicago), of anja Photography, and Leah Robinson of Leah Robinson Photography (Melbourne, Australia) are two of the worlds leading family photographers. Both run fully booked, extremely successful photography businesses that see them travelling interstate, and worldwide to capture stunning art work for families all over the world. While their main focus is their client based photography business, they also LOVE to teach other photographers how to have the same success in their own photography business, by teaching them how to create fine art portraits utilising natural light outdoors.

Start the day at 11am with a casual and intimate gathering with Leah and Anne, where we will discuss with you the methods behind the shooting techniques we use with our clients, the hows and whys behind which equipment you should be using for what location and story, our 3D lighting secrets, and our ideas on how to produce storytelling imagery in every session. We will share all of our styling process, so that you too can have clients match your artistic vision. We will explore the outdoors and show you how we find the light and how we find beauty in wherever you go. Beautiful shots can be created anywhere if you know how to use the light- real life settings is our reality! We will SHOW you how we connect with our subjects as well as create connection between our subjects to get clients shedding tears of joy. All the "how-to's" we utilise to achieve emotion in portraiture will be shared and we promise it will take your photography to the next level!
We will also demonstrate, step by step how we hand edit and achieve those razor sharp images, how we produce the tones and richness, and all the editing secrets we have. And how over the years we've gotten our workflow so concise, editing most client images takes 10 minutes or less! Get off the computer and back with your family and still create stunning imagery for clients.

Ask us any question. Nothing is held back.

In this workshop, we will have the opportunity for both an indoor (natural light) studio shoot, as well as outdoor sunset session. The best of both worlds!

After we explore techniques for natural light shooting, exposure, and posing indoors- we will embark on an amazing outdoor sunset shoot-we show you what inspires us when location scouting, and how in every situation, it is ALL about the light. Once you know how to find it, you can make any location look amazing. We will work with REAL families and children, to show you how we create those dream like, emotional family portraits that make our clients come back again, and again.
Limited to 10 attendees only, and with 2 instructors, you are ensured personalised, high quality learning. We WILL look at the back of your camera, and will explain the how and why of what we think. As past attendees will attest, we are REAL teachers. There are no egos at Horizon Within and we aren't doing this to show you how to get only one amazing shot with a million likes on social media-this workshop will help you fill your CLIENT galleries with beautiful imagery and make it EASY.

A private online forum will be set up 4 weeks prior to the workshop so we can all become acquainted, and begin our learning journey. In here, we will arrange a date to have a pre workshop webinar, where we discuss all the basic details involved in capturing tack sharp, authentic and artistic family photographs that are full of colour, emotion, and love. This way, you come into the workshop already energised and inspired, ready to learn all we have to offer.

After you have had a chance to go home, and apply your new knowledge, we will meet again online a month after for an editing webinar, so you can continue your learning journey. Past attendees have found it extremely beneficial to have more than just one day to absorb information because repetition is integral to learning and transforming your work.
