For years people 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 how I work along with the cameras and lenses I use. During these informal but hands-on sessions, you’ll learn how to use the 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
If you would like me to speak to your camera club, photo organization or convention, please read the Workshop FAQ, which contains answers to commonly asked questions. If it doesn’t answer your specific question, please click on Contact in the menu bar and ask. I’ll usually get back to you within 24-hours.
For years people have been asking if they could come along on a shoot with me. Now you can with a new program that’s called “Shoot with Joe” that will be going on during August, September and October 2016. This is a one-on-one workshop in my home studio near Parker, CO, with just you, me and our model and you get to pick the date and time.
The two hour workshop kicks off with a introduction to basic lighting techniques and then moves into demonstrations on how to use inexpensive studio lights to create portraits in the studio or on location. The workshop is tailored to your specific needs and photographic experience, so each one is different.
Bring your camera—SLR or mirrorless—but this is not a “how to use your camera” workshop. You will get to shoot all of the lighting setups demonstrated and between set-ups there will be critiques of the photographs you make. The fee is $95 or $125 with a model release. A handout with lighting & posing tips is included along with lifetime customer support via e-mail.
Glamour & Boudoir Workshops will be available soon. The workshop fee will be $195 or $225 with a model release. Click the Contact button and ask about times/dates for both of these workshops.
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 hands-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 $50. Workshop is limited to a maximum and minimum of three participants. If you have any questions, click the Contact page and ask.
