JERRY GHIONIS

Learn and explore,
The romantic and timeless style,
the Cinematographic and immortal Rembrandt lighting technique,
the surrealistic and high-fashion approach.

Lindsay Adler

Learn to take techniques of fashion photography and apply them to your work! Lindsay will guide you through the process of inspiration, preparation, and production including style, fashion posing, fashion lighting, tethering, color grading, and more.

Working with professional fashion models and couture clothing in a once-in-a-lifetime location will allow you to capture images worthy of a fashion magazine. Take these techniques and images home with you to apply these lessons to your own portrait, wedding, or fashion work!

Chris Knight

With Chris you’ll explore how to transform a space with light and narrative, inspired by cinematic and painterly sensibilities. Awaken your creative mind by taking an already breathtaking space and enhancing it through photographic tools to take your storytelling and image-making up a notch.

Learn how staging and layering for depth create a narrative, how to create and shape lighting motivated by the environment, use color as an emotional expression of the scene, and many other tips and tricks that will help give your images that extra layer of polish!

Jerry Ghionis

Jerry will teach you the five steps to a well-crafted photograph. Walk with Jerry in and around the iconic Graphistudio castle as he shows how to recognize the creative triggers in any environment. He will show you what good and purposeful light looks like and how it flatters his subjects. He will then show you how he uses locations to complement but not overpower his creations. In-camera artistry will be a focus during this Photowalk and Jerry will also show you how to effortlessly evoke emotion.

Whether you photograph portraits, weddings, or fashion, a day with Jerry will help you learn how to be a better photographer of people, be more creative, and how to wow your clients.
