Get ready to learn!

Welcome! I'm Kari Layland, a professional photographer in Minnesota, specializing in portraits of all kinds and wedding photojournalism.

You can view samples of my work on my website: http://www.kariphotography.com/, or my blog: http://www.karilaylandphotography.blogspot.com/.

After receiving emails from countless aspiring photographers, I've decided to share my knowledge by teaching!

I've taught several full day group workshops and am now focusing on one on one training. I've enjoyed every minute of it, made great friends along the way, and best of all, watched my students develop into wonderful photographers! So much so, I entrusted 3 of them to photograph my wedding this last May! They did a fabulous job.

For information on my workshops and instruction, take a look at the posts below. If you're not in Minnesota but are interested in a group or one on one class, let me know! I am happy to travel. Contact me at info@kariphotography.com for more information.

  1. Kari's workshops are phenomenal! Firstly she knows her stuff! Secondly, she's incredibly generous in sharing her expertise. I got so much out of our June '08 workshop - lots of personal attention, technical pointers, PS tips and techniques. I highly recommend her workshops, and am looking forward to the next series.

  2. I attended the 2008 June Workshop and if you're on the fence, sign up! Kari makes it so easy to learn. Even though many of us were at different levels I was so impressed that she was able to target all of our needs. My photography took a step to the next level plus I met some new friends that love what I love and we still get together.

  3. I attended the Austust 08 workshop and loved it. Kari is very helpful and took time to answer all our questions. I took my nieces senior pictures and she loved them and her mom said I missed my calling. The after the workshop blog is great too to get answers to your questions after you take all the info that you learned home. I would highly recommend doing the workshop. It is soooo worth it.


  4. I was fortunate enough to attend the June workshop and learned SO MUCH! Kari shares tips and tricks that she has learned over the past ten years - in one day, you will learn more than you would learn on your own in months or years! And one of the best parts was getting connected to an amazing network of others sharing the passion of photography!


  5. Attending Kari's workshop was the best thing I did! I'm a hands on learner so this is exactly what I needed to help me improve my photography. It was helpful to watch her work with the models and see her in "action". Kari was very helpful in answering everyones questions and gave awesome tips on how to improve. I would highly recommend attending one of her workshops - its worth every penny and then some!
