Hey There!
I'm going on a little workshop tour to raise funds for a personal project I am apart of.

I'm excited about this workshop because teaching something that I truly enjoy also allows me to be a better photographer and director. 

Collectively, we will pull our creative juices together to build the final shot. My students get a first-hand, step-by-step look into how one of my shoots work as well as a 'get ye'r hands dirty' introduction into the exciting world of commercial and editorial photography!

This is truly something I wish I had when I started. 


This workshop is a game changer. 

Mike Stog shares how to jumpstart ones career in the creative world of commercial and advertising photography!

We have this wild idea! What if we were to bring together photographersstylists & media creatives for a fun night of drinkslight fare & collaboration ...on a live advertisement shoot?  

Consider. It. Done.

Washington DC/ Baltimore Advertising Photographer Mike Stog & Beauty Expert Ariel Lewis will not only lead a Q&A discussion on why the personal project is paramount to ones career- but also direct a live, interactive collaboration for a client advertisement! 

All levels of experience are welcome as we pool our creative juices together to make a beautiful advert!
