Workshops

See Me at Imaging USA in Nashville Photography Conference

imagingusa Nashville Imaging USA is the largest annual convention and expo for professional photographers. It's a yearly event and this year, as in times past, it's being held in Nashville February 1-3. It's much more than just a convention or an expo, it features speakers, workshops, panels, etc.

LensRentals.com

On Tuesday the 3rd I'll be speaking and doing a mini-workshop at the LensRentals booth at 1:00. LensRentals is an amazing company and service that allows you to rent all kinds of photography and video gear and have it shipped to you. I'll be at their booth (#260) talking about lighting techniques including teaching how to use grids and gels to create moodier portraits. I will also have a Q&A on anything photography related at the end.

Hahnemuhle

And.... over at the Hahnemule booth  they've printed out a large format print of the photo of Leann Rimes that's on my web site. They will also be handing out smaller versions to anyone who stops by the booth. Hahnemule makes the most incredible paper for photo printing. Many photographers rely on them for their fine art prints.

So if you're going to be in Nashville for ImagingUSA please stop by and say hi. I'd love to meet you! It's being held at the Gaylord Opryland hotel February 1-3.

 

0 to 60 in 6 hours Photography Lighting Workshop In Nashville

NOTE: The early-bird pricing is over. It is now $199. Earlier in the year I did an Intro to Lighting workshop at my photography studio outside of Nashville. It was a success for all who came and I've decided to do it again. This time however I've made a few improvements and also LOWERED THE PRICE.

This time around it will be a 6 hour day of intensive training for only $199.

I can say this; I have never taught lighting as in-depth as this workshop will be. I will start from the ground up teaching the very basic and foundational concepts of lighting.

You will learn how to go from several different 1 light set-ups to variations on more complex, advanced ones. This will not be a hands on workshop. I've learned from past experiences that the time students spend shooting is much better used taking individual questions and making sure everything that's being taught is clearly understood. If I have to go deeper into a technique I will.

At the end I will set aside as much time as possible for a Q&A session on anything photography related.

As a bonus I will choose 3 people at random who have signed up to receive a personal 30 minute portfolio review by me. Anyone who's ever had one by me knows I'm very honest, but encouraging in the process of a review. All reviews will take place at my studio in Franklin, south of Nashville.
