4 hour Intermediate Portrait Workshop Lesson w/Model & Bonus 2 1/2 Portfolio Build (this is an extra special class with the portfolio build add on at the end. Only my Meetup members get this special deal for free. 

SPECIAL NOTE: I have taught this class hundreds of times and this is the first time I am offering it to my Meetup members. 

I have trained over 4000 people in Cincinnati and have over 7000 hours of experience so as they say this is not my first rodeo. My workshops and classes are 100% guaranteed. See some quote at the bottom of this page but if your an intermediate this is the workshop for you. 

Go to my website or see some information on this workshop or go to 500px to see some current work of mine. I also have two building were I hold builds and other workshops in. 

This in not just a portfolio build but a full on lesson as describe below. 

Spend a half day (4 hours) learning how to take better portraits of individuals in an outdoor environment. Learn from one of the best lighting masters in CIncinnati. Class is highly interactive and a model will be provided for students to practice with. In this intermediate, semi-private class (7 people maximum per class) learn how to use and find the best natural light, reflectors, scrims, on camera flash, off camera flash and the basics of strobes to begin to master outdoor portrait photography. Learn to shoot like a real pro. You'll also learn about basic camera settings and principles, depth of field, composition, location scouting techniques, and basic equipment information to improve your images. 

Class starts at 11 and the portfolio build starts at 3 and goes until 5:30. 

You must pay in full to reserve a spot for the workshop. Please call[masked] or email me at [masked] to book a spot. 

Here is our amazing model. Yes she in 5'11" without shoes… 

Classes cover these major topics and much more:

• How to use your Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, Depth of Field, and camera's metering system properly

• How to get razor sharp focus in all of your images- How to find the best natural light -- good light vs. bad light

• How to use a reflector, scrim, and bounced light

• How to work with a subject on posing, interacting with subjects- How to build confidence as a photographer

• How to create images that are works of art not just snapshots- How to compose the correct shot

Yes, all that and more in 4 hours of instruction! Also as a member of my meetup a 2 hour bonus with a free portfolio build will be included. Get some great images right after class!

To be eligible for class students must: have their own DSLR and lenses (no point & shoots), must be able to changeshutter speed, aperture and ISO settings. 

Here are a few quotes from our classes with 100% feedback! Also check out my review here on Meetup.

"I learned more 1 hour than I learned in 10 weeks at a local  photography course" Tricia W.

"Michael is very professional and the class was exceptional. Very informative and he gave his best! Thanks Michael." Rhonda C.

"Michael was very down-to-earth and approached the class in a way that was easy to understand. Among other things, I got some great pointers for finding good light (not as simple as it sounds). I came away from the class with a lot of good information and ready to go practice what I'd learned. I'd definitely recommend his classes!" LISA S. 

"I took this class as a continuing education course for my job. While I primarily shoot products at work and Michael is a portrait photographer, he actually customized the class to fit my needs. I've been taking photos professionally for 5 years now, but as it turned out, there was a ton that I didn't know about (lighting techniques, camera settings, gear, etc.). It's easy to get into a slump with your photography, always resorting to same old tried-and-true methods. This class definitely reenergized me to spice up my shots." Rob D.

    Michael, she does look really great in front of the camera but I've already committed to a previous Meetup. If this were Sep 20 instead and started at 12pm, I'd be all over it.
