WELCOME TO IBIZA’S FIRST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP WITH GYPSY WESTWOOD
Intimate, relaxed and unintimidating – let’s make friends in beautiful Ibicencan surroundings.
I have been photographing weddings for over 15 years primarily in Ibiza, but also Majorca and mainland Spain . With 500+ happy couples and an extensive Ibiza portfolio, I am super excited to be able to share and teach how, why and what I do to get the best photos I can at each wedding.
My true passion is the photography-it is creating beautiful images. My art is capturing them as naturally as possible, with little guidance but lots of observation. Through my workflow I hope to show the process, including how I choose and then edit my images to make a full gallery of quality memories for the client (that are consistent.)
I would love to invite you to come to Ibiza to meet me and other island photographers and friends, to join us on this first Ibiza photography workshop. This will be an intimate workshop with just a few attendees (maximum 10), so we can really delve deep into any questions you have. I won’t hold back; I’m yours to ask anything. I want you to be not only inspired, but also to have a new set of skills, techniques, knowledge and portfolio images to launch or further your business and find your own flow.
We will have two styled shoot with real couples, not models, because for me it is all about capturing real people and real moments. Plus, an arch and set table, decorated and designed by top Ibiza vendors. I will show you how I photograph all elements of the wedding day creatively but naturally.
I will go over my whole photography journey from start to finish, including how I started, built and maintained my business. I will show you prices, contracts, social media and much more! I will be open and so happy to share everything I can.
WHO IT IS FOR
This is a workshop for beginners or those who have started and are trying to spread their wings further into the photography world. For those with questions, who want to be inspired, improve their shooting, editing and marketing skills, who want a little bit of Ibiza in their portfolio AND who want to discover my beautiful island that is famous for it’s spectacular light.

The emphasis will be on the photography:
My equipment, how I use my camera and my settings. Photography and my style. How to keep it natural and get the shots. Composition and using natural light, even on a cloudy day. Editing using Lightroom – what I do to get timeless colour/B&W images with no presets. Keeping it consistent.
In addition to this we will also touch on:

Review of your photos and your portfolio. How to be consistent in your work. Discussion about editing and SEO. Evening chats with other island photographers and guests.
