What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Compared to the popular "Paint & Wine" classes out there, these classes offer more one on one instruction, smaller classes, you don't bring anything, and they are less expensive..
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students do not bring anything! I provide all art supplies and food & beverages are available for purchase (with half off bottles of wine available).
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Being a night owl and enjoying a glass of wine while I draw...it was a no brainer and these classes have been a part of ,my Pencil Portrait business for 4 years.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting people and having a laugh with a fun group. I also enjoy when a skeptic leaves my class with an amazing drawing.
Forrest Briggs claims the South as his home, and indeed he grew up and attended college there. As a photography student, he earned admission into several galleries and juried exhibitions, but his post graduate work honed his eye. He travelled the world, learning to speak fluent Vietnamese and becoming trapped in Nepal during the 2006 coup d’état, all the while documenting his journeys through his camera. The temporary expatriation sharpened his skills, helping him excel at photographic composition, natural lighting strategies, and more abstract concepts such as how to make photos “pop.”
Now, as a photographer and teacher, he passes along these lessons to a new generation of shutterbugs, while lending his eye and skill to clients in search of classic portraiture and boudoir shoots. He also has an eye for shooting martial arts action, working behind the scenes at mixed martial arts events and even pulling a stint as the personal photographer of Cheryl Murphy, nine-time US Nationals Karate Champion.
