New York City - All-Out Lighting - May 18 & 19

  • Are your dream clients out of reach because your lighting is flat and boring?

  • Do you wish someone would show YOU how to master your lighting game?

All-out Lighting is a two-day bootcamp that teaches you the ins-and-outs of lighting in all conditions. Day 1 is studio lighting and day 2 is natural light. Whether you shoot fashion, portraiture or fine-art photography, your lighting will be top notch in just two days!

This bootcamp consists of lectures, demos, black and white image processing, working with a wardrobe stylist, makeup artists, hair stylists, as well as guest lecturers and a whole lot of shooting with models.

What to bring:

  • A camera: DSLR, mirrorless or medium format with general knowledge of how to operate it manually.

  • Lenses: one wide, one long lens and a zoom would be preferable. If you only have one lens that works too.

  • Computers: your personal laptop is recommended but not required. If you want to shoot tethered, please bring your laptop. External hard drives are also recommended but not required. Please bring enough cards and a card reader if you are not shooting tethered.

  • Tripods: I recommend you bring one, but it is not required. I do not have a preference for a specific one. 

  • Knowledge of photography: experience levels of participants vary from intermediate to pro shooters. I will challenge everyone to get out of their comfort zones and learn something new. 

  • A good attitude: you are all here to learn. Please be coachable. My mission is for you to be the best photographer you want to be.

Level: Amateur to pro
