​​Photography is the recording of momentary light. Without light there is no photography. When you first began to take photos, it was all about the subject. And as you progressed you began to look for the right light for your subject. And it was as you began to find the right light with the right subject you began finding the magic that happens within photography. What you were doing was “Taking Pictures."  

 The point of a studio is to be able to control every aspect of the image. And the single most important aspect of control is the lighting. This class is an intro to understanding the difference between “Taking Pictures” and “Making Photographs” and the techniques required to master that difference.

This class is limited to 4 participants of intermediate to advanced levels. And each participant must provide their own digital, interchangeable lens camera and tripod. 

The class will be tailored to the group's interests and skill level. And students must either be known by Will or present a minimum of 5 images for review before acceptance to the class.

Additional cities will be rescheduled as the pandemic allows.

Cost:  $300 per photographer
