In an effort to reduce the amount of email that goes out to everyone, I'm trying something new. I'll post all my workshops in the PhotoCoterie meetup group as always and only post a note on the Seattle Photo Group calendar with a link to RSVP on PhotoCoterie. Then I will email everyone once per week with a list of upcoming events. Feel free to email me directly if you have any questions or concerns about this process. Below is a list of things coming up very soon. Many more free events and affordable workshops and model shoots are in the works so stay tuned!

Studio lighting can be mysterious and intimidating to new and experienced photographers alike. This introductory crash course will shed some light on the subject and give you the confidence to start working in the studio right away. I will provide you with an essential understanding of lighting sources, modifiers, metering, and practical applications for every-day projects. You will leave the studio armed with the knowledge you need to create consistent, predictable results you and your clients can count on.Hands ON Portrait Workshop:

It's time again for the First Thursday Artwalk in Pioneer Square! Now I've got a brand new storefront studio off First Ave in the middle of all the Artwalk foot traffic! This will be our grand opening!
We offer free portraits to the public during the artwalk. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience with a variety of model subjects. I'm taking up to 6 photographers this time who want to practice their portrait skills in a fun and exciting environment. I'll be there to coach and direct as needed. Don't miss out!Portraiture 101:

How often have you heard someone say ?I?m not photogenic? or ?I don?t like myself in pictures?? It seems nearly everyone who has ever been in front the lens has said something similar? I know I have. So how do you respond to someone who says they?re just not photogenic? My answer is always the same? ?Don?t worry about that?. it?s my job as a photographer to MAKE you photogenic!?
Learn what it takes to make anyone from average Joe to super-model Jane look great in portraits! In this portrait workshop, we?ll build on the foundation of lighting concepts covered in Intro to Studio Lighting and cover a variety of lighting styles, posing techniques, wardrobe and background tips, lens choice, and a host of other technical and artistic considerations that go deeper into portrait making than my other workshops.
