Outdoor Lighting Workshop - Finding and Creating Light

Outdoor Lighting Workshop at the Scottsdale Civic Center

This Lighting Workshop will teach you basic lighting concepts and advanced techniques for outdoor portraiture with off camera flash.

Certificate of Completion:

For this and all upcoming Workshops, I will now be including Certificates of Completion for all attending Photographers, upon the submission of their artistically enhanced images from the Workshops. These images are for the benefit of our Models and a recognition of your application of the techniques presented.

Garden Setting:

The Civic Center provides a diverse setting for beautiful portrait photography. Our experienced models will work with you to help you achieve the look you want to capture. Soft, Fashion, expressive.

Lighting Direction and Portrait Patterns:

We will begin the Workshop exploring the direction of light to create beautiful portraits, using reflectors, diffusers and small flash units.

Portable Lighting Kit:

We will demonstrate a newly designed portable lighting kit which requires no cords or battery packs, yet produces studio quality light, perfect for location portraiture, indoors or out.

What you will Learn:

This Lighting Workshop will teach you basic lighting concepts and advanced techniques.

Time Frame:

We will begin at 11:00 am and go until 6:00pm with an informal dinner discussion afterwards for those who are interested.

Please bring plenty of water, a box lunch and wear comfortable clothing.

Work in Teams:

We will assign and work in teams to insure that everyone gets the instruction they need and learns how to hold reflectors and diffusers as well as setup portable lighting.


We will have a 45 minute lunch break at 12:30pm and a 10 minute break at 3:30pm

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone desiring to learn and master Portrait Lighting using available and supplemental lighting.
  • Anyone who would like to learn and master Off Camera Flash
  • Anyone who would like to take control of their lighting skills and produce quality lighting with repeatable results.

Equipment: Camera, Lens, reflectors, diffusers, small strobes, etc. We will be working as teams and your team members will be able to hold the accessories for you when you are shooting.
