WHO WE ARE
BLOGSHOP has traveled the world to put on sold-out workshops since creators Bri Emery and Angela Kohler first began teaching together in May 2011. Having traveled to Paris, Berlin, Sydney, London, NYC, LA, Chicago, San Francisco and more thus far, BLOGSHOP is eager to experience new cities, cultures and share the inspiration.
Angela Kohler likes all things visual. She likes to make stuff and send it in the mail to people who are not expecting it. She is a Photographer and commercial director based in Los Angeles who has worked with a variety of brands such as Toyota, Microsoft, Amazon, Capitol Records, MTV, New York New York Hotel, and Verizon. She began teaching photoshop at university back when it was 2.0, and loves sharing the magical aspects of this program with her students.
Bri Emery is the founder and editor of the blog Designlovefest, featuring daily posts on design, decorating, fashion, entertaining and more. A graphic designer by trade, Bri started her blog in 2009 as an outlet for her great enthusiasm and passion for design and typography, and has extended this love into the BLOGSHOP brand, where she enjoys sharing her knowledge and cultivating a strong skillset with her eager students. Bri has been featured in Elle Décor, Apartment Therapy, HGTV, Lucky Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings and more.
BLOGSHOP is a Photoshop bootcamp. Minus the push-ups. It is a full weekend spent stuffing your brain full of things to make the images on your blog unique and eye catching. We teach the basics from scratch as well as some more advanced techniques and then help you apply them with your own perspective to layouts that you will use when you go back to your own blog.
People who have no experience with Photoshop leave the course with confidence to create layout, prep images for mood boards and collages, retouch skin and color correct images, animate gifs, add textures, borders, type and drawing to their images to make each of their blog posts or other visual materials special.
At the end of the first day we have a portrait session, so on the second day you can work on your own pictures, which will be perfect for contributor photos and bio pages.
This jump-right-in approach to Photoshop is a great way to demystify the program, and make it another tool to bring with you into the competitive world of visual design.
BENEFITS OF IN-PERSON: Individual help, get your professional photo taken, take-home magazine, Q& A with Bri and Angela, networking with fellow bloggers, curated goodie bag, catered lunch, extra tips + tricks, creative environment.
Online BLOGSHOP features a similar set of lessons as our in person workshop, streaming live for 48 hours. We’ve filmed and narrated all the lessons, so now you can watch us and learn Photoshop from the comfort of your own home.
Attendees are given a single-access link to stream the full BLOGSHOP course over a 2-day period with capabilities to rewind and rewatch as much as they’d like. We’ll also have tech support available.
Just like our in-person BLOGSHOP, people who have no experience with photoshop will finish the course with confidence to create layout, prep images for mood boards and collages, retouch skin and color correct images, animate gifs, add textures, borders, type and drawing to their images to make each of their blog posts or other visual materials special.
