In this workshop, he’ll show how he photographs subjects in the studio. He’ll present many different configurations of lighting that allow for his highly unique interpretation of his subjects including how he approaches the sessions, engages with the subject and what happens in post.

The concept of the psychology of light, detailing how lighting choices affect the mood of a photograph and how to select lighting most appropriate to what you want the photograph to “˜say’ will be discussed and examples given.

This is a shooting workshop – attendees will be able to “try on” various styles of lighting to experience how they are used throughout the day.

This class is intended for emerging and professional photographers as well as advanced amateurs. It is an intermediate and advanced class.
