(Daily agenda items may vary as we will stay flexible to the flow and energy of the class.)
In order to give you the most training for your dollar, we strictly limit the number of participants to 10 people. We do this to assure that you will receive all the individual attention you deserve. However, we do welcome family and friends to travel with you, and they are welcome to stay in your room at no additional occupancy charge! For meals, simply sign your guests up for the awesome meal plan upon check-in at the lodge.
The skills and knowledge gained from this Bootcamp, when applied, will produce a return on your investment far greater than the cost of registration – we guarantee it! Plus, it will be one of the best working vacations you'll ever take. (The information you'll gather and fun you'll have will disproportionately affect your gross annual earnings by at least a factor of 2.5 multiplied by the programming fee [x pi r squared] over the course of 6-12 months following the closing date of seminar effective 12:01 am Pacific Standard Time. The diversion or postponement of an invaluable amount of permanent hair loss will also be factored into the long term gains equation and...oh heck, if you're not satisfied, we'll refund your programming fees! ;-)
Ginsu knives! Just kidding...however, each registrant will receive Kevin's latest Lightroom Workflow Tutorial ($99 value). But wait, there's more! You will also receive bonus photo enhancement tools, so you can zip through color correction, sizing, and portrait effects like a true digital photography guru...priceless!
Alyssa Flaten's audio testimonial -
"I learned more about photography techniques, processing, the business end, and marketing in one week than I had ever learned. I also learned about how important getting to know your subjects and telling their stories are to improving my skills. The total immersion, small group setting, and the personal attention makes this experience priceless and unforgettable. I look forward to making my photography sing! "
"Bootcamp was a fantastic experience! I started implementing what I learned the day I got home (the workflow system; practicing some lighting techniques and working on my website and brand). I can't wait to see how my business grows and changes in the next several months because of all the useful information Kevin provided. If that was not enough....Kevin and his wife, Clare, also provided us with the most beautiful setting and accommodations in Sisters, Oregon. It was the perfect place to relax, learn, and grow as a photographer. Most of all, they brought their warmth, humor and positive energy to what became an unforgettable experience..."
"If you're looking for an all inclusive photography bootcamp that touches on the various aspects of photography, look no further; Kubota Bootcamp has it dialed in. Instilling confidence in one's spirit to embark on your next photographic endeavor no matter what stage of growth you're in, from lighting, file management and/or the latest industry trends. Kevin and Clare Kubota create a fun nurturing environment with memorable touches that inspire."
"This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. Intense, informative, to the point, and lots of fun. I'll be back in a few years for a refresher/checkin....and because Kevin and his beautiful wife, Clare, have an infectious joyful attitude on life & photography."
"Kevin creates a safe, open, creative environment for photographers to explore new equipment, new ideas, share experiences, and help each other grow. His energy, patience, and heart are like a shot of adrenaline to the creative mind. I wish I'd gone through his Photography Bootcamp years ago!"
