Photography: Painting with Light Workshop is So Much Fun!

ALERT: January 15 Painting with Light Workshop is ALMOST FULL! REGISTER SOON AND SAVE $20!  Plus participants and our former Painting with Light Students get to participate in a FREE fun activity with a PixelStick on January 18th!

Of all the photography workshops we host, one of the most fun ones is our Painting with Light Workshop! I keep the class size small, limited to only five students. After a couple of hours of teaching the concepts and techniques, the LIGHTS GO OUT and we do some Painting with Lightreally fun photography with a professional model.

Every participant gets involved in the creativity, as we produce all kinds of fun and sometimes wild images using time and light and motion.

Student regularly say this is the most fun photography workshop they have ever participated in.

Painting with LightHere’s what students are saying online:

  • “This was an absolute blast. Kevin’s sense of humor kept us laughing and his creativity kept us in awe. It was wonderful to get in there with the other class members and play with light! He keeps the class size small so we have a lot of hands-on learning and fun.”
  • “Your Painting with Light class really opened my eyes to a whole new way to take pictures. SO FUN!”
  • “Kevin’s “Painting with light” class was a blast. I have taken various classes from Kevin so far and this one was my favorite. It’s one of those classes that promotes creativity, provides hands on experience for each student, and the class is so fun that it ends before you want it to. Not only was it fun to watch the model being painted, but equally as much fun to see what each student ended up with. Kevin is passionate about taking photos as well as teaching photography to others. He’s kind, compassionate, respectable, and displays an abundance of patience with his students. I highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to take fun and creative photos in a friendly, safe environment.”

Exploring the Aspect of “Faith” and Our Photography

I just announced this new photography workshop called “Photography: An Expression of Faith“. It’s actually quite different from my other classes.

We are looking at the topic of “photography” from a different angle.   Rather than focusing on camera techniques, settings, exposure, light, composition, and all the other things that really matter a lot to create great images, we will be exploring how the topic of “faith” shapes what you photograph, and participants will take on a project to use their photography as an expression of their faith.  You can take this workshop using any type of camera, whether it is a DSLR, mirrorless camera, point-and-shoot, or even a smart-phone.

Granted we all see matters of “faith” differently. This workshop embraces our diversity and insights and challenges participants to really reflect on this aspect of photography.

I encourage you to read more about this workshop.  I have introduced it with a super low introductory price of only $39 if you register by December 24th.  The class is filling up fast!!

Rekindle Workshop Just Announced!

Rekindle Workshop

We just announced our first Rekindle Workshop for 2017!  It is a unique and inspiring workshop for photographers.  This will be 5 weekday sessions beginning February 20th, 2017.

Sometimes we reach a point where we just need to pause and reconnect with…
… why we fell in love with photography!

  • You might have reached a point where you feel uninspired, ‘burned out’, or just feel like you have lost that spark of creativity.
  • Maybe you just don’t feel good about the images you are creating, like they’re ‘missing something’.
  • Perhaps you need some fresh ideas to help you grow as a photographer.
  • Or you are new to photography and even though you know the fundamental technical stuff, you want to explore more of the artistry of photography.

This workshop will help you rediscover your love of photography and how you see the world around you.  It will help you work your way past creativity roadblocks you may be experiencing.   Join us for this special workshop.  Register soon and take advantage of our $20 Early Registration Discount!
