What we're about

This photography group is open to all photographers and models interested in developing their in studio lighting abilities and techniques for glamour, portrait, modeling, artistic or any other modified lighting situation. We schedule workshops regularly ranging from beginner lighting instruction to portraits in motion such as ballet and at times artistic. They involve advanced lighting techniques to produce specific effects complementary to the workshops theme which varies with each session. We invite top models nationally and internationally. You will find the workshops are informative and indicative of highest professional standards.

Locations for our workshops or seminars will vary from RiversEdge Studio of Photography, Haverhill MA to greater Boston studio locations, and when weather permits to on site natural settings in the New England area. In the Fall we will at times blend local sites and models for exceptional imaging opportunities.

We are an adventurous and creative group....we are an active group! We do schedule sessions that are in the most creative sense of artistic, and I have therefore limited viewing to members only, as many in our communities have no understanding of the arts in photography, its value, or its satisfaction granted to its creators, and obviously do not visit their MFA's or other art oriented institutions. My first intro to Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and other photography giants was at the Boston MFA, and I was always impressed by their insights into lighting and composition. One of my photographic endeavors is to emulate as much as possible in their styles, yet create my own style in the process. I am a professional photographer who began the metamorphosis in life careers some 15 years ago. It has been an interesting journey! We all want to find our creative niche! I ask of you that if you join this group, you take an active interest in photography, in particular portrait photography. We are very lucky to have a studio setting for many of our sessions! Be active, seek, learn and enjoy!

I do review membership periodically and am inclined to delete inactive members or members who seem to be here for no reason at all from the roster. Thank you....Join accordingly!

Please feel free to message me with suggestions or inquiries!
