Introduction to In-Studio Photography

Cost: $200, including 4 hours of studio rental (5 pm to 9 pm) ($80 for each additional participant).

Using the studio equipment, lighting control and colour calibration techniques will be taught in this course. With the use of various lighting sources and various composition advice, participants will be able to achieve professional studio photography results.

The proposed format is as follows: we will start with 2 hours of studio training. Upon completion of the first hour of training, you are free to invite an amateur or professional model so you can practice your newly acquired skills. The trainer will accompany you until the end of the 2-hour training session and will guide you on the spot giving you the best techniques and professional tips. After the training session has completed, you will continue to have access to the studio until the end of your rental time slot (9 PM for the evening time slot). This will give you the occasion to create your first studio portfolio. If a problem arises, the instructor can always be reached by phone to get help.
