Rudney has such a natural talent and such a natural way of sharing that talent with others. He has a comfort about him that makes him approachable, understanding, patient, and your biggest fan all at the same time. I learned so much from him, elevated my work and business, and continue to do so as his help isn’t over when the workshop is. He really wants you to succeed and is always available for help, tips, questions, encouragement, and feedback even after your official time together is over! Thanks for being such an inspiration Rudney!

His style is effortless and learning from him is like him opening his book and letting you step inside.

After The Educational Editorial last year at Oheka Castle, I could go on for hours about how I leveraged your workshop to book ideal clients! I am so so thankful for my experience with you and your workshop. 

When you’re passionate about giving yourself the best value for the money- you need to make the most of every educational resource you invest in. This is one of those resources.

The Educational Editorial has changed my life and completely transformed my business. My prices doubled and I'm booking more ideal clients than ever.

After 4 years of being mentored by Rudney, my craft has tremendously improved. He has taught me one-on-one, but also through the amazing Film Theory Workshop. He has empowered me to feel like I can take over the film photography world, something I was afraid to do because it was so unknown. At every wedding, workshop, or styled shoot we have worked, Rudney executes with excellence and performs with passion.

Chic by Nicole

And I’ve been intrigued by photography since I was a boy. In youth I discovered a fascination with film when my Father left behind a vintage camera. I was amazed by the mechanics of the time-worn device, in awe of its capability to freeze moments in time. Today, I’m an editorial and wedding photographer capturing stories filled with feeling, and my love of light and film continues to shape my craft. I’m passionate about sharing the knowledge I’ve chased since childhood with aspiring creatives and seasoned professionals alike, and I believe wholeheartedly that there’s always more to learn from one another. 

Hi there, I'm Rudney Novaes —

About the Creator

Being born into a strong Italian family, Kaleb's father taught him the pursuit of excellence and attention to detail, while his mother instilled in him an understanding that kindness and intentionality will take him further than anything else. With these qualities laying the foundation, Kaleb began his company with the intent of being his client's greatest advocate and also their friend. This has allowed him to create truly beautiful events around the world, with an innate understanding of who his clients are and what is most important to them on their wedding day.

His passion for European architecture and design has set the tone for his signature style, while his East Coast floral design training sets the stage for his unique approach to traditional, yet intentionally unstructured floral work. With these principles combined, Kaleb has worked around the world, including Italy, France, Mexico, Hawaii & the Caribbean and all throughout the US, with work has been featured in national publications such as Brides & Martha Stewart, as well as People Magazine, Magnolia Rouge and more.  

Hi, I'm Kaleb James!

- Live in-person film & technique class
- Three full styled editorials designed by Kaleb Norman James  
- 8 hours of in-person shoot time
- Fewer than 10 attendees on site, separated into small groups
- Multiple vignettes impeccably styled by Chic by Nicole
- Personalized guidance from our curated vendor team 


Experience the opulence and luxury of a historical European aesthetic in south Florida's subtropical ecoregion. With its rich Italian Renaissance Gardens and French layouts, together with Cuban and Floridian limestone and coral architecture, we seek to give a modern nod to the Gilded Age, respecting the power and great wealth that came at this time and the men who built it.  The perfect place to stay and dream, by the sea or in the gardens, let your imagination take you to new heights. Strong, feminine touches through a masculine eye, you'll delight in Mediterranean deep olive green tones, shades of aubergine purple and mauvy taupes.

Hi, I'm Nicole!

We will have a group discount code for the THesis Hotel Miami in Coral Gables for all the attendees. The THesis is located about 5 miles from Vizcaya, and they have 2 outstanding restaurants.
We will host our welcome cocktail at one of their restaurants on October 25th. It will be a very convenient option. 

Where should I stay during the workshop?

Of course! You can use all of the images on your website and social media channels. I value crediting vendors for their art, and as participants I kindly ask you to credit the entire creative team involved in the workshop you selected. 


Due to the nature of the workshop your deposit is non-refundable. As such, you will not be able to reschedule your mentoring date once payment has been taken. If for any unseen circumstances you are unable to attend, you are welcome to transfer your seat to another participant.

What is the cancelation policy? 

Once you register, you will receive a detailed list of helpful information on how to prepare for your shooting day. In the meantime, one of the main things to consider is bringing your favorite film/digital camera and film stock. If you don't have a film camera, don't worry KEH will be there with an arsenal of gear for you to play with! It will be fun! 

What Should I bring with me? 

A lot of time! Before the workshop date you will receive a schedule and detail program with instruction on how to prepare and what to bring as well as tips on how to make the most of those two full days of education and hands on learning opportunities. 


No, however, this guided editorial's primary focus is to help you understand and experiment with the magic of film and use it as a tool to elevate your brand's aesthetic. Digital shooters will also benefit. It's essential to have a strong understanding and knowledge of your own camera. If you have any technical concerns about your gear, please let me know beforehand so we can discuss it together. 


don't worry, we have the answers!
