Professional Photography Workshop!/Gresham Oregon Photographer
On July 26th Suzi and I hosted a Professional Photography Workshop at our Studio. The class was sponsored by the Professional Photographers of Oregon, and all proceeds went to the association. ( I only mention this because recently I have been accused of being selfish with my talents) The class was open to all Photographers of all levels, Pros and aspiring Pros, members and non-members. We had 17 students and we spent the day photographing different models and different situations. I tried to share the things I have learned in my carreer, covering a variety of lighting techniques, posing, equipment selection, business ethics,and how to produce consistent professional quality images for our clients at all times of day and under all conditions. It is hard to teach all I have learned in the last 28years in one day but we crammed a lot of info into 5 and 1/2 hrs. I produced a lot of images for my models and the students produced some great images to inhance their skill level and confidence when they go back to their studios and work with their own clients. I love to share with people who are genuinely interested in learning and improving their skills. I have been asked by some of the students if I was planning anymore classes, if their is enough interest I would gladly do ths again. I hope you enjoy the photos posted, just a small sampling of the images we created that day.
