Put on your yoga pants and tighten your shoelaces, ladies and gentlemen.

The FotoBoho BootCamp cometh.

This boot camp is four days of intense learning for photographers who are looking to polish their game when it comes to lighting, posing, business management, and marketing.

Let’s get inspired.

WHO:  This year marks the 18th year that we – your Foto Boho Boot Camp drill sergeants Pavel + Jessie Stehlik – have been shooting weddings in the Tampa Bay Area. We have seen every possible configuration of wedding day disaster and have mastered what it takes to make the entire experience as happy and satisfying as possible – for both the photographer and the client.

WHY:  When we launched FotoBohemia, we did it with the intention of building a community of like-minded photographers that are looking to learn and grow from each other.  Each new generation of photographers brings an excitement, enthusiasm, and refreshed approach to photography that should be celebrated. And with the proper tools and education, we can raise the bar and help these photographers give their clients an incredible experience.

WHAT:  Four full days of learning, with breakout practice sessions, take-away tools, laughter and camaraderie.

WHERE: The CL Space in Ybor City:  1911 N 13th St #w200, Tampa, FL 33605

WHEN: 1x weekly on Thursdays beginning on May 19th and ending on June 9th

COST:  $800 for all 4 days. Lunch will be possibly be provided – stay tuned for updates! And we’d love to have you join us for dinner and drinks at the end of the day, but that is optional and not included in the price.
