Workshops

For years people have asked if they could shoot with me. Now you can join me in a series of hands-on workshops on studio and infrared photography where you’ll get to see the cameras and lenses I use and how I use them. During these informal but hands-on sessions, you’ll learn how to use techniques that I’ve written about in magazines and books, get to ask questions as well as shoot photographs for your portfolio, providing a fully interactive experience

Lighting for Boudoir & Glamour Photography Workshop from June 12 through August 25, 2018 in my home studio near Parker, CO.

The 180-minute on-on-one workshop kicks off with a brief discussion of the concepts of lighting for boudoir and glamour photography, then moves into demonstrations on how to use simple, inexpensive monolights and reflectors to create boudoir and glamour images in a studio or on location. Model will be Erin Valakari who has appeared many times on this site; just type “Erin” in the Search function to see some images of this lovely and talented model.

Bring your camera because you will get to shoot the model under all of the various lighting setups demonstrated. But please note that this is not a “how to use your camera” workshop, so you should be comfortable with using your camera in it’s manual model. Join us for a fun and informative session where I’ll demonstrate how to get maximum quality portraiture using the minimum lighting techniques using all kinds and prices of gear.

The workshop fee is $199 or $225 (cash, check or PayPal) with a signed model release. Since this is a one-on-one workshop it’s limited to one students at a time. Click the Contact button and ask about times/dates for these workshops.

 

Introduction to Infrared Workshops will be held on select Saturdays in Summer 2018 at McCabe Meadows in Parker, Colorado. You don’t need an IR-converted camera to attend because I will provide different filters for you to use during the workshop. It’s a 90-minute hand-on workshop on making digital infrared images with your own cameras. We’ll kick off with a brief discussion of capture options, then we’ll walk around the park and make IR photographs.

I’ll also demonstrate a comparison of images using filters with those made using a IR-converted camera. Please bring your camera—SLR or mirrorless—and a tripod because some of the filters will produce really slow shutter speeds. Fee is only $50 per person. Workshop is limited to a maximum and minimum of three participants. If you have any questions, click the Contact page and ask.
