    Lauren Sanderson’s approach to shooting client and personal work is greatly influenced by her surroundings— her vision for a session often starts when she chooses the location. In this Breakout, Lauren shares how she chooses and uses even the most ordinary location to create extraordinary images and galleries that are full of variety. She’ll show how her gear, camera, location, and perspective choices help her achieve her vision, and she’ll show inspiring instructional images to illustrate each concept. You’ll learn what to look for when scouting locations and you’ll explore with Lauren in a behind-the-scenes video to see how she chooses her locations, the decisions she makes based on her environment, and what she would have done differently. Finally, you’ll learn how Lauren edits her images to enhance or alter a location.

    Lauren Sanderson calls her style a mix of modern portraiture and casual lifestyle moments. Born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama she primarily photographs couples, children, and families. Lauren approaches photography with a designer’s eye and believes that a location is an integral part of all her sessions. Lauren has been a Clickin’ Moms member since 2010, became a Click Pro in 2013, and in 2013, Lauren joined the Click Magazine production team and is in charge of editing and retouching every image for each bimonthly issue… a job that she enjoys and a team she loves being a part of. Lauren has three small girls that keep her on her toes and a supportive firefighter husband that just laughs and shakes his head each time the UPS man drives away. And in the small sliver of time called “spare” she enjoys Crossfit a few times a week, trips to the beach with her family, and cheering on her alma-mater, the Alabama Crimson Tide!

    1. Highly recommended!

      This breakout was exactly what I needed. I live in Illinois, where everything looks the same, and I needed inspiration for how to use this to my advantage. Lauren explained everything so well, and pullbacks and final images were included. I'm very happy with this purchase. on 25th May 2016

    2. Helpful even beyond selecting a location

      Great insight to choosing a location, but I really enjoyed the editing as well, thank you for including it! on 26th Oct 2015

    3. Great Information

      I haven't watched the videos yet but I did read the material and it was great information! It really gave me some ideas on how to take a location that seems blah and boring and make it very usable as a location. I also appreciated the pull backs. Great material and great read! Thank you! on 24th Oct 2015

    4. Loved the pullbacks!

      Really enjoyed this BO! The pullbacks on the location shooting was great to see. Thank you. on 12th Oct 2015

    5. Wonderful, inspirational break out session!

      I am thoroughly enjoying this break out session - my 4th so far! Lauren Sanderson is a wonderful photographer and teacher and I can't wait to put everything I'm learning from her session into practice. This session is truly inspiring providing plenty of tips and ideas to get you motivated to go out and take wonderful photos... Thank you Lauren for everything you have shared and for all your teachings which will enable me to practice becoming a better photographer. Worth every penny... and more! on 4th Sep 2015

    6. Best breakthrough I have done in ages!

      As a busy mum of two I am limited to finding new locations but this breakthrough taught me to look around my own environment as there is so much in front of you. I have started looking at locations as not just
      The fabulous park or beach setting but also a little nook in my back yard or a derelict building or tree beside my house. I learned a lot about editing as well particularly bokeh. Thank you again so much Lauren. Best money I ever spent in photography.

    8. Game Changer

      This breakout was phenomenal! It has completely changed the way I look at the spaces around me. I am seeing interesting locations everywhere - and am able to find places to shoot in the most unlikely situations! Great price and incredible information. I loved this breakout!!! Thank you Lauren!!! on 21st Apr 2015

    9. A whole new world!!

      This is such an amazing breakout. Lauren made me fall in love with my surrounding all over again! I thought that everything around my home is so boring and predictable but now I see new opportunities all over and just one step outside. No more driving far. Lauren really changed my view and prespective. I discovered a whole new world!! on 21st Apr 2015

    10. Just What I Was Looking For

      I've often been jealous of all the unique locations and backdrops I see in the photos of other photographers. And wished I had some practical, real world advice on how to find unique locations near me. This breakout was just what I was looking for. It was an affordable investment for me both in terms of time and money, that yielded a huge return in the quality of my photography. As part of the breakout, I scouted a new location close to home with fresh eyes and insight. A week later, I did Senior portraits for a friend at my new location, and was really able to rock that shoot.! I loved the photos I got and so did my friend! on 21st Apr 2015
