BOSTON PORTRAIT WORKSHOP
Fresh off of the heals of my El Paso workshop, I'm coming to Boston. I honestly had so much fun with this group of students and this amazing space, that I just can't wait to do it again. This is Lui, and I'm pretty sure he ended up with the coolest shot from our day. As part of the workshop, I photograph all participants. As photographers I think it's important to be photographed. What's that thing they say about the cobblers children? Seriously though, everyone is going to photograph you differently, and I think it's easier to pick up on some of the nuances of direction when you're being directed. I think it's also important, as photographers to remember how vulnerable it can feel to be on the other side of the camera so that you can empathize with your subjects.

The workshop will begin at 9:00am and take place at Norman Jaillet's Photography studio in Peabody (Boston North Shore area). We'll break for lunch and break for dinner but be prepared to make a day of it. The day is a solid mix of presentation, demonstration, me photographing students, students photographing each other, and my editing process. I'll cover everything from taste and style to lighting to post production and everything in-between. The group will be limited to 8 students so that you get the one on one attention you deserve. So if you're available on June 9th, I'd love to spend the day sharing my particular skillset with you.
