Light It Up!
Building on portrait and business basics

Steve & Sophie Winslow

Course Number: 36

Level: Beginner

So you jumped in and are calling yourself a professional photographer. Are you realizing there’s more to it than you thought? Don’t stress! Part one of this class will briefly cover the basics of camera function and technique. Then every afternoon we will dive deep with hands on lighting and posing both in studio and on location. Anyone can shoot at sunset, but you will learn to conquer bad light at the wrong time of day and turn it into a gorgeous portrait. In studio you will leave the “stuffy studio portrait” in the dust and create a studio stunner!

In part two of this class you will learn also how to market yourself. You will gain proven ideas to attract the right clientele, deal with the business side of photography, and turn your portraits into incredible wall displays, albums, and gifts.

There will be at least one wow-factor shoot that will turn heads and make your friends at Texas School jealous they didn’t take this class. There could be paint, water, sugar, costumes, and/or a monkey involved. You won’t know unless you show up! This class will bend your brains and fill your hearts.

This course will cover the following:

* Basic camera function (briefly)
* Natural light portraits
* Outdoor on and off camera flash
* Creative studio portraiture
* Marketing your style to the right client
