The Blueprint Masterclass



When I purchased my first DSLR I was excited at the thought of all the amazing images I would capture. However, that enthusiasm quickly turned into frustration as I found myself struggling to learn the ropes in the photography world. After watching HOURS of YouTube videos, listening to podcasts and going on photo walks it still wasn’t enough. I still couldn’t get my camera to capture what I was seeing with my own eyes and it took YEARS of trial and error to finally get it right. Sound familiar?

When you are finding your bearings in the world of photography it can be overwhelming when you’re trying to take the type of photos you can be proud of, but have no idea what you’re doing wrong.

Fast forward to present day and I’ve traveled nationally and internationally to capture weddings and events for couples and corporate clients. I’ve worked with t.v. personalities, top ranked success coaches and national organizations as well as being listed as one of the top wedding photographers in two different cities. I’m at a point in my career where I can be proud of the work I do and the moments I capture for my clients, myself and my family.

Check out these images of my daughter below, one from 2013 and one from 2019. Big difference right?

The great part is that you can do the same thing. You can travel the world if that’s what you really want to do. You can take better photos of your children and their many milestones. You can be the photographer you’ve always wanted to be! I’m here to give you The Blueprint you’ve been waiting for. No need to watch endless hours of video tutorials and webinars. I’ll help you eliminate the learning curve and give you everything you NEED to be a better photographer without all of the fluff.

Hear what others are saying about The Blueprint Workshop….

“I loved the workshop, it was very helpful and organized! I definitely know that I gained some helpful knowledge for my photography and business. Jerrell was a great teacher and answered questions as honestly as possible and gave out knowledge and tips. Overall, it was clear and organized and kept the theme of the workshop, which is the blueprint!” – Diane W.

Jerrell did an amazing job explaining the necessary components of photography (from a beginner’s level). He was knowledge of photography and took a logical approach to explain the content. I walked away with some valuable tips including understanding ISO, aperture and shutter speed and why it is important as well as recommendations of photo editing software and editing approaches. Also, it is worth noting that a segment of the workshop was dedicated to practical application (which is rare) and that was beyond a 5 stars rating..! – Larisa W.

Jerrell is an excellent photographer and teacher. He was able to break down complex photography topics in easy to understand bites. He is also very friendly and approachable. If anyone had any questions in the class, Jerrell would happily answer. Furthermore, Jerrell provided a model to show us the whole process of preparing, shooting, editing, and presenting our photos. That really helped tie everything together that we learned that day. I would whole-heartedly recommend that anyone interested in photography take this class. It really does provide a “blueprint” to take your photography game to the next level. – George G.

I became aware of Jerrell’s workshop through a photography facebook group. I am a beginning photographer that started less than 1 year ago. I have watched a couple Youtube videos, became familiar with some of the lingo; but I felt like I was missing something that could tie all that into a solid foundation. Jerrell’s workshop really helped get a good starting foundation. I was impressed with how structured the workshop was with well thought out content that was applicable without the fluff. He was very helpful in answering all our questions. I really appreciated learning about the whole creative process instead of just one piece. I was especially impressed that Jerrell got a model so we can test out what we learned in class. I would definitely recommend Jerrell’s workshop and I feel I am a much better photographer in just a couple hours. Thanks Jerrell. – Haemy C.

The class was great. I learned a few things that I didn’t know and I can apply. There were also things I learned that I will be trying in the future. I think it was excellent for beginners. It was a lot of information but very informative and explained very simplistic. There were things as a pro that I didn’t quite understand until I heard it in this class. – Tyeshia B.
