Join author, professional photographer and former ASMP-DC President Vickie Lewis for insights on capturing portraits of working professionals in their own environment. With more than 150 portrait assignments for People magazine to her credit, including presidents, congressmen, Olympic athletes and celebrities, Vickie shares her vast experience in creating portraits that go beyond a simple headshot and start to tell a story.
Whether it’s a surgeon, an attorney, a politician or corporate executive, environmental portraits give the viewer a deeper understanding of the subject and a deeper connection when the subject is photographed at home, work or play.
In this workshop, you’ll get a brief overview of environmental portraits taken by masters of environmental portraiture both past and present.
And then the opportunity and challenge to photograph other workshop participants using available light techniques.
A fun afternoon of exploring portraiture. Join in the fun and sign up now!

A Note about environmental portraits and light:
I received a great question about environmental portraits and light and whether environmental portraits imply using available light only. Absolutely not!
This class is the first in a series and intended to be a 'primer' and 'introduction' to environmental portraits. To keep the class 'focused' we will just look at the options of available light.
There are many ways of shooting environmental portraits, including using available light, adding reflectors, using a simple fill light with your flash on camera, using an off-camera flash and combining with available light, and overpowering all available light and creating your own effect entirely.
We will be offering more classes using other light sources later this fall.
