Switzerland Photography Workshop Results | Bob & Dawn Davis

Switzerland photographers................ whew! A tough crowd, but one I feel in love with. Bob and I taught a 2 day workshop in Zurich, Switzerland in March to an amazing group of photographers. I think we had about 38 attendees. Things are very different in Switzerland than they are here in the States. Things like First Looks, Engagement Sessions, and Mess The Dress sessions aren't really considered there. Networking isn't really big there either. As we all know here, networking with other photographers is huge! Our friend, Daniel Zihlmann is a photographer in Switzerland and he's breaking all the rules. He's created a group called The Wedding Crashers and once a month they all get together to network. They encourage each other and they are bringing a different spin to wedding photography. It's pretty amazing. It reminds me of what's been happening in the States since things like David Jay's forum Open Source Photo began. I love it! And I think the photographers from Switzerland are all going to make some huge changes there over the next year! It's pretty exciting!

A big thank you to Paul Merki from Light+Byte. He brought us over to teach this workshop and we are so humbled by that. I was really awesome meeting you Paul. Thank you for making this workshop possible!

Here's some fun shots Bob created. You can also see some great images on Facebook from some of the attendees that I could find... Daniel Zihlmann, Colette Anderes, Daniel Knecht, Thomas Wuscher, Jeanine Linder, Felix Oberhaensli, Simon Lutolf, Claire Morgan, Nadia Talamona, Daniel Däppen.

Thank you to Daniela Aregger and Mike Leuenberger for modeling for us during the workshop! You're both so beautiful....!!!!!

I will be blogging about the rest of our amazing trip soon too!!! Stay tuned...!!! Here's a sneak peak at Anton Lorimer's blog post about our trip. The Lorimer family ROCKS!!!

Book: Lights, Camera, Capture by Bob Davis | Pre-Order Now

UPDATE 04/08/10: We're getting more and more excited about the release of Bob's new book: LIGHTS, CAMERA, CAPTURE. I think the official release date is April 20, 2010 but it's changed a couple of times. I know it's very soon!!!!

When Barry Pruett from Wiley Publishing approached Bob about writing a book, I have to be honest... he was a little nervous. He's never written a book before and he wasn't sure if he could. Well, with much trepidation he accepted the challenge. While writing the book, there were many moments where he was feeling pretty weak and he was beginning to doubt himself. But I knew that God had much bigger plans for him than he could see for himself.

I am so proud of him as he's in the final stages of preparing for the release of his 1st book. It's pretty exciting as I know he poured his heart and soul into this book. He's received some great feedback on the sample chapter we have shared with our friends.

Creative Lighting For Digital Photographers

Anyway, it's listed on Amazon available for pre-order. I'm sure once it's release, the price will go up some so order it soon! We're excited to hear your thoughts!!!

We just can't thank Barry Pruett, Sandy Smith, Courtney Allen and the entire team at Wiley for supporting Bob and I in all our endeavors! You all are the very best!!!

Switzerland Photography Workshop with Bob & Dawn Davis

Please tell me three months of the new year hasn't passed us by already? Has it? NO, I say! Where does the time go? Besides potty training a new puppy, being taxi drivers for school dances, choir concerts, sports, and tutoring, life is giving us quite a roller coaster ride!

Bob & I are planning an amazing trip to Switzerland. YES...!!! Switzerland and we couldn't be more excited to meet Paul Merki from Light+Byte. He invited us over to teach a 2 day workshop in Zurich. This is going to be an amazing experience and we're honored to be meeting all the attendees!

A great big thank you to Daniel Zihlmann (Wedding Photographer / WCS - Wedding Crashers Switzerland) for introducing us to Paul. Daniel and I have been blogger friends for many years.... many, many years! It's going to be amazing to finally meet him. He's sweet, kind, fun and a really wonderful photographer.

We're also really stoked that the beautiful Lorimer family (Abby, Anton and Trevor) will be coming with us to Switzerland! Anton Lorimer of Lorimer Works will be producing a photographer's promo video for us. Anton has created some of the most amazing work that I have ever seen!!! Both our workshop promo videos, Davis Love Story and our Vegas Love Story and he edited Bob's EOS Canon 5D Mark II short film Voyage. We just can't say enough about Anton... I do know that one day we'll be saying "I knew him when....".

And I must say that I am screaming happy that our dear friend Heidi Morgan and her daughter Kaitlin will be coming to Switzerland too! We met Heidi at our workshop in St. Simons Island last October. This girl is the BEST! Yay!!! I can't wait to see her again!

There are just 3 seats left for this workshop, so if you haven't signed up yet... don't wait any longer! You can find out all the info below!

Tuscany, Italy | Wedding Photography

Just a sneak peek of Bob's recent trip to Italy with our friends, Gene Higa & Jose Villa.

Life has been so hectic at the Davis home, I wanted Bob to take a break and go somewhere he loves.... Italy! When Gene & Jose announced their Workshop, I knew it would be a great opportunity for him to get away from all the craziness we've been experiencing, hang with the boys, learn from Gene & Jose, and just plain relax. I'm so glad he did. He had a fantastic time getting to know everyone and hanging out doing what he loves! Thank you Gene & Jose (and Ann) for taking such good care of him. He was so missed...!!!

Here's a sneak peek... I'll add more as time permits. Hats off to all the models... wow... s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g!

Photography Workshop | St. Simons Island | Bob & Dawn Davis


Yes, we are at it again... this time at the BEAUTIFUL Ocean Lodge hotel in St. Simons Island, GA. Sarah Skow is marrying Dr. Brent DeShaw and we are inviting 15 photographers to photograph the wedding right alongside their lead photographer, Bob Davis. They couldn't have chosen a more beautiful place than the Ocean Lodge hotel. It's filled with southern hospitality & charm. I'm so happy for Sarah & Brent that they will be having their dream wedding in St. Simons Island, GA.

Their story begins like this, Sarah was a Vegas Love Story workshop attendee of ours. She was just starting out as a photographer when she attended our workshop a year and a half ago. I'll never forget how nervous she was. Truly! She is adorable. Since attending our workshop, she has become a full time successful photographer who loves her life and her career choice. She even met her future husband at a wedding she was photographing. How cool is that?

I invite you to read Sarah's Story, it's very inspiring. She also wants you to know that you can contact her anytime if you have questions about her upcoming wedding and why it's important for her to make her wedding a workshop. Sarah's email is and of course you can contact us anytime as well at This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. We don't know too many couples who would want 15 photographers learning at their wedding.

GraphiStudio will be providing an amazing discount to all attendees to make a fine art Italian book with the images from this wedding, which will include a suitcase, and fifty 4x5 mini books! This is a great way to showcase a beautiful destination wedding to your potential clients. Gotta love that! And we absolutely love GraphiStudio!

To register for our 3 day intimate wedding workshop, click here. You don't want to miss this one! Open to 15 attendees and 6 seats have already been spoken for! Sign up fast as it's selling out quick! We look forward to meeting each and everyone of you!!!!!

Davis Love Story Photography Workshop | The Results

Finally, some amazing results from our DAVIS LOVE STORY WORKSHOP in Bel Air, MD. Again, we were blessed indeed with a fabulous group of attendees from all over the country! THANK YOU so much for coming from near and far to hang with us for 2 days! The images I've seen come from you all were mind blowing and I can't wait to feature them on our NEW workshop website.

Bob and I decided we would make this a family road trip from Chicago to Maryland. So the four of us hit the road and didn't look back. It was Bob's idea to stop at every state "Welcome To" sign and take a picture. That was actually fun. I twittered our entire trip there. Every ten minutes we had to pull over because Bob wanted to snap a few photos or someone had to use, well, you know! Needless to say, it took us 3 days to get there! We did stop in Cincinnati, Ohio to visit with my brother. I'm so glad we did that. Thank you Scotty for spending time with us!

By the time we made it to Maryland, we arrived at the home of the Hancock family.... tired and exhausted. Our dear friend Kristie of Kristie Blake Photography and her husband, Shane, took us in and treated us like family. Kristie, was one of our Vegas Love Story workshop attendees turned greatest friend...!!! We have vacationed together many times since then. Oh the fun! This trip, we decided that before the workshop started we would drag our families to New York for quite the adventure. We had a blast!!! Thank you guys for opening your home to us and for your treasured friendship. We love you to pieces!

The workshop began with a meet and greet at Kristie's home. I absolutely LOVED meeting everyone! Even some wonderful people who weren't attendees came a long way just to meet us. Thank you! As you can tell from the photos, we had a wild bunch... beginning with Kristie!!! The next 2 days Bob spent sharing techniques on how to master their flash and work with strobes. We also shared our workflow from capture to output. We spoke a lot about marketing and sales. We can't stress enough how important it is to sell yourself as opposed to your photography. Bob and I are big into vision boards so I designed one for each of our attendees. I think they were a big hit...! Use them well everyone, nurture them and they will be good to you!

Thank you to all our new friends. You believed in us. We believe in you. We are a perfect fit! Bob and I want so much to see you succeed. Please know that we are always here for you if you have questions or need us for anything!

We can't thank Kristie enough for helping us out with this workshop! And our dear friend, Armin DeFiesta who scouted most of the models... and Kristie too! And having Dave Piazza from FJ Westcott at our workshop was a real treat!!! This workshop was a success because of all of you! We couldn't have done this without your help!

Life is a journey, only you hold the map...

xoxoxox ~ Dawn and Bob


Now for the good stuff...


Meet Bambi and Ontel. They were so much fun and truly brought it every photo. Thank you so much you guys!!! We can't wait to see the images Kristie and Theresa capture at your wedding.
