Portrait lighting isn't just a collection of tips and techniques to be arbitrarily applied. It's a universal language all its own that can be sensitively and skillfully used to communicate an idea or feeling to the viewer. The word “photography,” after all, means "writing with light,” and light is literally the only thing a camera sees. To master this medium, you must understand and know how to use light, whether it's available light or light that you create.

Join Greg and unleash the expressive power of light! Under his guidance, participants experiment with various tools for creating, shaping, and modifying light, ranging from the simplest setups to the most sophisticated strobes. We explore ways of using light expressively to make new and fresh portraits, both in the studio and on location in and around Santa Fe. We expand our approach to photography by training ourselves to see, enjoy, and appreciate light. Even better, we discover how to envision light in the mind's eye and then make it happen when and where we want it.

Developing a true appreciation of light in its many forms—and the ability to work with it—opens up an entire world of possibilities. Don't be a slave to light; learn how to dance with it!
