Photographers are known as “chasers of light” because of the time we dedicate to understanding, manipulating, and falling in love with the light we find around us. The light you use in your images can take your photos from simple to stunning.
The light you choose for your images is key to capturing mood, emotion, and to best showcase your chosen subject or scene. Sometimes we forget that it’s not quantity but also the quality of light that helps to create magical photos.
During this workshop we will experiment with a variety of types of natural light and how to use light to effectively to highlight the most important aspects of your scene and to ensure the light you choose fits the mood you are trying to create. We will focus on both human subjects and inanimate objects.
One of the main goals of this workshop is to encourage you to expand your ability to photograph subjects in a wide variety of lighting circumstances and to have the ability to adapt your settings and compositions to the requirements of the light you find yourself faced with.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to owning a photography business and while that means the possibilities are endless it also means photographers often feel overwhelmed by the options available to them when it comes to running their business. I am here to help!
