SwOH Photography & Lighting (formerly SW Ohio Strobists) offers a variety of hands-on workshops and intensives for those interested in learning more about, and sharing their knowledge of, off-camera lighting.

Though all off-camera lighting is discussed--including natural and ambient light--there is a decided focus on small flash units like Nikon and Canon Speedlights.

Please scroll down on the main page to see descriptions of, and images from, past and future meetups, workshops, and intensives.

Sessions are typically held at 21c Studio, just off Rt 4 in Liberty Twp, 25 miles from downtown Cinti and 30 miles from Dayton. Other sessions and location shoots may be held throughout the SW Ohio and Tri-State area.

Members are encouraged to bring their cameras, flash units, and any light modifiers you are using or may have just purchased but need to know more about. Bring too a sincere desire to share with, and learn from, others.

The group is growing quickly and space at meets may be limited. You are encouraged to sign up early for workshops to reserve your spot.


Thanks. . .we're looking forward to meeting all of you.

SW Ohio Photography & Lighting - growing strong!
