A Day with Darton Drake: "Portraiture and Depth of the Spirit"
Saturday, May 4, 2013

Segment 1: 9a-12p
Lunch: 12p-1p (Will be provided)
Segment 2: 1p-4p

This is a program you do not want to miss ! !

Darton Drake is one of the premier speakers on Photographic Portraiture in the country. His presentation will not only be inspirational and uplifting, but also highly informative.

Through the use of several digital slide shows he will show his images and in some cases show you how he went from original exposure to a final piece of artwork. He will explain his theories about the art of photography, including how to create an honest rapport with your subjects and how to wait for that magic moment before releasing the shutter. After this program, you will leave with a brand new perspective as well as the skills to raise your artistry and imagery to the next level. Not only will you benefit, but your customers will benefit as well along with the reputation of your Studio. Enthusiasm, desire and a new energy will fill your camera room and your heart.

What surprises many about Darton's work is that he uses only one 4'x6' Soft Box and two or three reflectors for all of his portraiture. During the program he will do a live lighting demonstration and produce an award-winning image right before your eyes. Along with covering all of the photography lighting basics (including standard, modified, short, split, broad and Rembrandt lighting) he will also show a few of his own personal lighting techniques.

Darton will also cover topics including composition, balance, perspective, color harmony, posing and camera angle as well as how to use textures in your images to make them truly unique and amazing.

Some of the mottos Darton lives by include the following:

“A photograph is what a person looks like, but a portrait is who they are!"

"It is a privilege to capture the spirit of another human being!”

“It's not what's in your hand that makes the portrait, it's what's in your heart!”

This amazing event is open to the public and costs just $50. Preregistration is necessary as there will be a limited number of seats. This event Will Sell Out so claim your spot now. REGISTRATION can be done online here at:

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
