"HTL is what you are looking for to improve your photography. These guys are at the top of their game - they love photography and not just teach you the material, they engage you in an experience that has you leaving the event as if you'd been adopted into this really large, great family. Personable, knowledgeable, approachable - HTL has done wonders for my portrait work."

About Us

Be A Better Photographer

SuperShoots photography workshops started in 1998 with the advancement of digital photography and the internet's social media platforms. Photographer J T Smith saw a need to educate photographers and provide a creative platform for amateurs, hobbyists, advanced photographers and professionals alike.

SS events are designed to make you a better portrait, beauty, glamour and fashion photographer. Offering you a mix of studio and natural lighting workshops.

SuperShoots also understands the excitement of working and creating with beautiful people. The events are fun, relaxing and an excellent venue to enjoy the process of learning while creating images with beautiful models. 

Supershoots offer organized photo sessions with each model attending, personal photography training, consultations, mentor programs, seminars, and photo classes. 





Our Mission /


The best way for you to learn is through hands-on training. A true workshop is when you are the one who applies what you learn. During the events, you will shoot 1-on-1 with different models at several locations or studio sets. You can create images for your displays, portfolio, and online social media presentations. You will network with like-minded colleagues and models.


SS events provide professional makeup and hair artistry for the models that will make each of your shots unique. Supershoots workshops offer a variety of outdoor locations with a mix of studio lighting environments. Some events are dedicated to the studio with over 25,000 dollars in lighting equipment for you to experience and learn from.

Supershoots will answer all of your questions. The events are organized and have a super friendly atmosphere. We will teach you proven and creative techniques that will make you a better photographer. If you want to learn better techniques and have fun doing so, our workshops are the right events for you.
