Dear Shaun, I simply wanted to express my gratitude and admiration for you. Working with you was an experience I will cherish and refer back to throughout my career. Not only are you good at what you do, but you also love what you do. Your skill and zest for your work make for an amazing working experience. I look forward to the day when we can work together again. You helped to capture the best side of myself, both physically and personally. Your knowledge and know-how helped me to do the best that I have ever done in front of the camera. The knowledge that you shared with me – both about simple posing, and also about the Fashion industry as a whole has proven to be a priceless gem of inspiration and knowledge. The excitement of having the chance to work with you was only compounded when I saw the finished product. To see myself through your eyes in your photos was a liberating and exhilarating experience. Your work is art. You do not simply capture my image, you capture – me -. Your attention to detail and beauty is inspiring. It showed me that there is in fact true beauty in the simplest detail of not only photos, but life itself. Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you and get to know you. You are an amazing photographer, but more importantly you are an amazing person. Spending time with you doing something that we are both passionate about was definitely a highlight of my young career. Love, Admiration, and Gratitude always,Jessa Lane
Shaun Alexander’s workshops was the most productive, knowledgeable and Luxurious good time I’ve ever had as a model. This man is not only a phenomenal photographer; he also possesses skilled dedication to the Art of styling. From the moment you meet, the first second you are in the make-up chair, his magic begins. He does his own make-up, hair and styling for his shoots and makes you feel like the super model that you know you are. Anyone looking for a top of the line portfolio needs to have a session with him. You’ll know within the first hour that you made the right decision and you need look no further. By the end of the shoot you’ll be begging for more. There are really no words to describe the ease that he puts you in, and the pictures that are created during your time with him will make jaws drop and people to ask where you found such a fabulous photographer. I have never seen such dedication and professionalism. The finished product speaks for itself. I highly recommend attending at least one of his workshops, or booking him for a private shoot.Megan Foss
Dear Shaun, I just want to take a minute to share with you how much I learned from your fashion photography workshops! On your site, I recall reading that taking your workshop would increase my portfolio by 500%. I must say I was a little skeptical, 500% is a lot! But, seeing your work, I knew that I would learn.Well, after taking your workshop, my portfolio and quality of my work has increased by 500%! I learned a lot of different things that when put together has increased the quality of my work and have helped me with makeup, styling, photography and postproduction. That is a lot to say, but your workshops deliver! Please feel free to give my name and information to someone who is considering your workshop. The warmth and way that you use constructive guidance in teaching makes it a delight to learn from you. It is amazing that someone so accomplished takes the time to share his knowledge with others , yet you make the time, and you do it so well.Honestly, I don’t know how long it would have taken me to get to this level without your fashion photography workshop. All of the sudden, other photographers, stylists and models are really complimenting my work. I look forward to learning even more from you. You are a gem.Thank you so much for sharing!With Love and Warm Affection,Always,Pamela
Hi Shaun, Your workshop was a fresh new experience for me; I learned a lot about things not usually covered in photography workshop even though they deserve more time than the technical stuff. Like make-up. Shaun’s make-up abilities are astounding. I watched him work up close and I saw the results on my pictures. The colors and gradation were so incredible. I learned a lot only by watching Shaun work. That gave me a lot of ideas and I look forward to experiment on my own. The models were just awesome and some of the best models I have ever worked with. The workshop went by quickly and I am ready for another. Thanks Shaun,Denis
Wow. Wow. WOW. You are #1 in my book, so incredible spending yesterday with you.Best learning experience ever, from one incredibly fun and charming man. ANYONE OUT THERE – STYLISTS, PHOTOS, MODELS – WHO ENJOYS SHAUN’S WORK AND WANTS TO BETTER THEIR OWN… TAKE THIS MAN’S WORKSHOP, IT WILL BE EXTREMELY INSPIRING, MEMORABLE, AND SO INCREDIBLY WORTH IT!

I can’t thank you enough for everything learned and I look very forward to your next workshop! Thanks again for sharing all your knowledge, talk to you soon.
Shaun Alexander is a true visionary. He sees things as they could be and has this amazing ability to turn them into a reality. When I first met Shaun, it was like I had known him for years. He was warm, passionate,and full of life. I could tell he loved what he did and that made him even more amazing at it. Shaun believes that “only by giving can one truly gain assets.” I believe this makes him one of the richest people I know. While working with Shaun, I realized he is not only a talented photographer. He is a well-rounded artist. He paints, he draws, he shoots, he creates! There is nothing he cannot do! I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Shaun. He has a beautiful spirit that shines through in all of his work. Shaun showed me what I could be. Kylah Kim
My experience with Shaun Alexander
I recently finished a 3-day workshop with Shaun Alexander. I am an amateur photographer trying to find direction and this learning experience was like none other.
First and foremost, I have to say that Shaun was very down to earth and easy to get along with, beginning from the first time we spoke over the phone. He took the time to get to know me and where I was on my path of photography. Not only was it apparent he was a professional, but I really felt his passion for fashion photography.
The workshop was intense! But how else could I get 30 years of experience in 3 days? It was exactly what I was looking for and had expected. His techniques, posing, lighting, and comprehension of the art that is photography were impressive.
In order avoid writing a short story, which I could, I will say this. As an amateur photographer I was looking for direction, technique, and an understanding of the business and art of photography. I received all these things and so much more. I came back to Dallas more excited than ever to apply everything I learned. Thank you again Shaun. Your workshop was an incredible experience for me.
And for anyone considering a workshop with Shaun, I say go for it; but only if you serious about taking your photography to the next level.

I was a very amateur photographer when I first contacted Shaun. Basically I had a pro level camera that I kept it in auto all the time. However I was starting to get work for my photography…but my big secret was that I had know idea how to work my camera or how I was getting these “great” shots that people were hiring me for. I felt like I owed it to not only myself but also to my clients to actually KNOW what I was doing. After a lot of research for photography classes and workshops around the area, I came across Shaun Alexander. I was completely blown away by his work. It was exactly what I would be shooting if I knew how to work my camera and use photoshop. I emailed Shaun my portfolio and he immediately called me and said “whats your background”…I sheepishly replied “um modeling, acting and directing music videos”. He was shocked that I was taking these pictures without any prior experience at all. We worked out a deal and by the next week I was in a private workshop with him. The model he hired for the work shop was top notch and professional (I would know because I was a model for 8 years). The first thing he said to me was put your shutter at 200 and your F-Stop at 16. I just stared at him blankly because I had absolutely no idea how to do either of those things…let alone what they even were. But with Shaun’s relaxed and nurturing nature he explained everything patiently and in a way I could understand and by the end of the day I was shooting like a pro and lighting like a pro. The next day we sat down and he showed me the ropes on photoshop…I always thought of photoshop as this impossible monster until I sat down with Shaun and he simplified all of it. Again by the end of the day I was editing my own pics on photoshop. My experience with Shaun was not only a huge step in my career as a photographer but also a huge self esteem booster. Knowledge is power and I gained a lot of that power and knowledge for photography through Shaun.

I have been shooting for many years now in many different areas. I started my career as an industrial scientific photographer, then on to portraits and weddings and now commercial photography with products and models with products, a different world.
I recently finished a three day workshop with Shaun in LA, it was great.
He is certainly an artist in every way. He can communicate his “vision” to all the important players in a way that makes the images all come together. It was a great education just seeing the whole process in action.
I would recommend Shauns workshops for veteran photographers and people new to the field.
Not only is Shaun a great photographer, he is also a great person with tons of good artistic energy.
I learned a lot and am excited to start putting it all into action!
