Always wanted to shoot in studio, like a Pro?

In this intensive workshop, you will learn how to work with models and professional lighting equipment. Whether your goal is Commercial, Corporate, or even Fashion Photography, this practical workshop will place you in the driver’s seat of a Studio Photography environment where you can create beautiful studio portraits. Designed for those who wish to use (and be in full control of) artificial lighting, this course is a “Go-To” for those seeking to up their repertoire.


You must be proficient in shooting in manual mode as well as understanding the concepts of shutter speeds, aperture and ISO.  If you lack that knowledge, I would recommend the Stage 2 Digital Photography for intermediate levels first.
