Hello and thanks for taking the 1st step into the lighting world. For the past 15 years I have been working as a top professional lighting tech to professional Fashion, Catalog, Music, and Celebrity photographers from around the world, while also shooting as a professional editorial and advertising photographer. Top mag and print advertising my lighting has been in over the years: Maxim, Stuff, Vogue, Teen People, Macy's, Nordstrom, Italia Moda, Pirates of the Caribbean movie poster, Dr Pepper ads, Gieco ads, two and a half men promos, Elle Mag, Eqsuire mag, Mens health mag, and all of the 2009 Shape Mag pool/ water cover shots just to name a few.
Class structure is relaxed, fun, and open forum, which means we all share knowledge together to further our knowledge as a group. You ask, I help you figure it out in a simple solution that makes sense.
In this group I bring together like minded creative photographers. Each session I will cover more topics and different lighting situations hands on with your camera. I supply top of the line Profoto professional lighting gear used by industry professionals around the world. Classes are for beginner up to advanced photographers looking to learn or broaden their lighting skills. I also teach private lighting specific to your needs.
By the end of the class you will be shooting studio lighting outdoors like the pros no mater what skill level you are currently.
Some classes we will have models, others we will take time photographing each other, some events just photographing the world around us.
Thanks again, look for upcoming events and art shows of the groups work.

If you can please add the $10 donation to my group( not mandatory), it is a one time fee, covers supplies, repairs to EQ, light shaping tools, art shows, tracking down sponsors, group trips, emailing people and allowing me to give these classes of such a high value at a low fee, etc...
See my personal work at Http://www.MichaelRobertHartman.com also watch for monthly photo contests from our sponsor: Http://www.YourSportsLife.com I teach real life situations hands on with your camera and my portable studio lighting. 90% of all classes are held outdoors, on the beach. I show back lighting and front lighting, plus one and two light ratios, how and when to use colored gels on the lights, plus standard distance and light height. So put down the books and get to shooting today!!! I will show you insider tips on how and why we use light outdoors. It is easy, once you take my class you will wonder why you waited so long.
