Learning (for photographers and enthusiasts)!

I offer learning sessions where I teach professional and aspiring photographers about composition and lighting for events and studio. Being that I am NYC based, I shoot at a wide variety of locations, including gorgeous estates such as Oheka Castle, lofty interiors such as Cirpriani 42nd Street and CAPITALE, open-air rooftops such as The Standard, and many more. With my experience, technical know-how, and my many years of teaching, you'll learn how you could tackle any space and lighting situation out there.

Some of the many things you’ll learn and be able to do:

  • How to use directional ambient lighting, and options for when it’s not available.

  • How to deal with shooting when you can’t bounce the light (places with wooden ceilings, really high ceilings, etc.)

  • Characteristics and differences of various lighting modifiers (shoot through umbrella, white umbrellas, silver umbrellas, octaboxes, beauty dishes, V-Flats, etc.)!

  • Differences of lighting (specular, flat, soft, hard, etc.)

  • Walkthrough of excellent modifiers that are portable, flexible, and within different budgets.

  • Learn with my multiple Profoto B10s and A1s, or with your lighting system!

  • Shoot in manual confidently and adjust color temperature accurately!

If you want to learn rapidly and are willing to challenge yourself to be better than 95%+ of the photographers out there, this is a great way to learn rapidly from someone who does it!
