Join us on Saturday, October 26 for a hands-on workshop with instruction from Bryan (@bryanadamc) and Ali Castillo (@alexiistherese).

Bryan Adam Castillo is a creative and lifestyle photographer based in Tucson, Arizona. He has a great passion to create photos and videos that inspire. Bryan values the importance of collaborative efforts where he can create eye catching and meaningful content for brands - this is where he creatively thrives. He has worked with major brands like Jaguar USA, Movado, Coach, Michael Kors, T-Mobile and many more. 

Alexis (Ali) Castillo has had a passion for all things creative since a young age. Whether it was drawing, storytelling, music or fashion, she has always found herself creating with her hands throughout her 28 years of life. Currently, she is living in Tucson, AZ with her husband and two dogs where she spends her days shooting content for the fashion blog she began just over 4 years ago. In the last few years she has found a new passion for traveling and immersing herself in other cultures.


Ali and Bryan met in Tucson 9 years ago and have been married for almost 6 years. They fell in love with photography together and thrive off of creating as a team.

This workshop will include a combination of teaching from Bryan and Ali, group Q&A, and hands-on practice. Light snacks and beverages will also be provided for workshop attendees.
