ASMP-ASA Presents

Stephanie Rausser 2 Day Workshop March 2-3

Sunday, March 2/ 9-6pm
Monday, March 3/ 9-5pm

Location: TBD


Years into shooting, Stephanie Rausser sees the world for all its beauty and humor and loves making it a little more fun, pretty, and inviting. Whether she is creating portraits, lifestyle photography, video, or working on a personal shoot, Stephanie is attracted to the bright side and the colorful.

During this two day workshop, Stephanie will show you how she goes about capturing the happy, spontaneous, and whimsical photos and footage that her advertising and editorial clients want. Her process employs lots of laughter balanced with attention to detail - she works with the firm belief that you are only as good as your location and your talent, and she will share how she goes about selecting these two critical components to ensure the success of her shoots. During the course of the workshop, participants will have the rare opportunity to shoot on location with Stephanie, and have their work critiqued by this true master of lifestyle photography.

For the last ten years Stephanie has run her business with her husband, Lawrence Cowell, who is the techno guru for her fully digital headquarters based in Sonoma County, CA. Her frequent and repeat clients include magazines such as Parents & American Baby and advertising clients such as Tempurpedic, Target, & Disney.
