This Intensive 6 Hour Master Class is designed to take photographers to the next level of achievement in their work.

    I really learned a lot about the lighting choices and it was great to see the effect of various soft boxes, umbrellas, the beauty dish, reflectors, and background lighting. Does someone have the list of the setup we used in first series of shots we took of Simon?

    There was a ton of great info packed into this class and I got a lot out of it. I highly recommend it to anybody looking to improve their knowledge of portraiture and lighting. Simon was a fantastic instructor, with a well-stocked studio, and Mary has beauty, perfect timing, and tremendous experience. On top of all that, it was a great group of photographers!
