We are SO excited to announce our second LYON-SHOP coming to Laguna Beach on October 27th, 2009!

We sold out super fast last time and we had an awesome response. Not only was the turnout great, but the actual LYON-SHOP day was a huge success! We feel so thankful to have had such an amazing group of fellow photographers come out to learn from us! We've been eager to announce a second LYON-SHOP since our first experience was so positive. Here is more info:

We lucked out and found a great location for our first LYON-SHOP at the Tranquil Tea Lounge in Fullerton, great ambiance, great food, amazing tea, and sweet service!
lyonshop_001.jpglyonshop_002.jpgA big thank you to Jason and Emily for being our beautiful models! We did two shoots that day, the first covered posing, interaction with your client, and creative use of natural light.

the "wish i could be there," comments are always a touch lame huh? if i had the means, and i don't mean the means that i will instead use to fly to hawaii, or buy rad clothes, cuz i don't gots those means, i mean extra above what i use to feed my family, i would be there googly eyed and ready to roll.

I'm really thinking about jumping into it and flying out from Louisiana. Only problem - do you guys have any interpreter friends (I'm deaf) or somehow would it be possible to figure something out? What area exactly would I need to fly into? I can scope out some friends if I know where and kinda feel it out.

Just realized it said Orange County - that's between SD/LA airports? What would be closer? Ontario even?

Amelia & Justin, just like Lindsay said, seeing this post has definitely brought it all back full circle. Before I took this workshop I was still in limbo with whether or not to embark on this new journey. Since then, I've taken the leap into this newfound passion of mine. All thanks to your generous knowledge, wisdom and inspiration! In addition to that, I've also made some wonderful friends from the workshop! Thank you again for the awesome experience! I'm so grateful to have been a part of it all! Wishing you all the success and most importantly, FUN in part deux ! xoxo - kristine ps. if you're even thinking about taking lyon-shop---stop thinking, and just do it!! you wont be disappointed!!!

I was on the edge about this workshop, but am so glad that I attended. Justin & Amelia are cool cats and are more than willing to share their smartness with you. The branding portion of the workshop was my fave and showed me how much I still have to learn. If you debating attending...just do it. Your eyes, brain, and camera will thank you!!!

I went out of town for a few days this last week and Justin was left with our boys at home. I got back to see all of the fun photos he took with them and I especially LOVED these photos he took with Hudson and Sloan in cowboys hats (thanks to Lyndzee for the fun gift!).
