The Moment-Driven Photojournalism Workshop and feature in Shutterbug Magazine

I just returned from teaching at the Foundation Workshops to a sweet surprise, my feature inside Shutterbug Magazine about wedding photography along with fellow photographers Cliff Mautner and Lisa Mark.

I remember reading Shutterbug Magazine when I was a young photojournalism student, I’d scour the ads for gear, record tips from professionals and dream about becoming a professional photographer.  It means so much to be included here, check out this month’s issue!

I’m really excited for my next Moment-Driven Workshop: Chicago April 10-11 and am offering Fearless Photographers and Foundation Workshops students $100 off!

Want to discuss where you are with your photography and where you would like to be?  Sign up for a free Strategy Session with me!

The next Chicago Moment-Driven Photojournalism Workshop (limited to only 10 students) is April 10-11. We will spend two days telling one person’s story, strengthening our visual storytelling and stepping outside our comfort zones.

If you’re shooting the same thing each week, the same way … this workshop can help.


  • How to capture and package the story of your clients, rather than hundreds of images that don’t connect to their hearts
  • How to communicate with your clients so that you can anticipate which photos will speak most strongly to them
  • How to capture powerful moments during a portrait session that show your clients as an authentic version of themselves
  • How to work through any anxiety and you experience documenting and interacting with strangers and address the self-doubt that keeps you from capturing the powerful shots you know you’re capable of


  • An intimate group experience with other photographers similarly interested in upleveling their skills
  • Tons of feedback from Candice and fellow workshop participants
  • Ample time to apply what you’re learning to make your photographs even stronger
  • A 15-minute follow up call with Candice after the workshop to identify areas for growth
  • Access to a private Facebook group of Moment-Driven alumni for future support!


  • Shooting assignments in downtown Chicago documenting strangers and telling their stories. This is a hands-on workshop where you apply the feedback and techniques you’ve learned immediately.
  • Feedback sessions where you practice identifying what makes a strong photograph so you can learn to quickly shoot and cull your own shots. Many photographers take days to edit a shoot — it should only take a few hours, once you know what to look for!
