A sereis on Lighting - a few spaces left

Starting next week I will be running a unique series of workshops on photographic lighting at E.P. Levine's Pixel Institute on Tuesday evenings, (there is also a series on Saturdays starting on May 18th)).  I have designed this series to cover the more profitable areas of portrait and event photography.  It is in these areas that lighting plays a key role and understanding how to handle it well can give you a head start over the completion.

I have taught lighting to students many times in my life, but I am particularly excited by this  chance to present a series in which the scope allows me to share the breadth of my knowledge across such a range of lighting styles and techniques.   It is suitable for all levels but it is  particularly designed to assist those who are looking to expand their skills in the money making areas of portrait and event photography.

By locating the series at E.P Levin’s studios in Waltham  it provides hands-on access to a wealth of knowledgeable staff and gives us the use of their excellent studio space, not to mention their vast stock of equipment.

Both the Tuesday and Saturday series are filling fast and there are just a handful of spaces left on each.

You get five complete workshops for just $279

Tuesday Classes take place  6.30pm to 9pm approx, on:  May 14, May 28, Jun 4, Jun 18,

Saturday Series takes place 10am to 1pm  on :   May 18,  Jun 1,  Jun 15,  and Jun 22

Booking must be made through E.P. Levine at 617-951-1499

Or online at http://www.pixel-inst...­
