Autumn Artistry and Portraiture
4-Day Portrait Photography Workshop
October 5, 2022 - October 8, 2022
Get ready for a new 4-day photo adventure in a beautiful New England location, The Fountain Inn of Ridgefield, in our home state of Connecticut. The historic Fountain Inn, a gorgeous inn filled with history and rich with detail, provides the perfect setting and staging for our fall workshop. Flash and portrait techniques will be the dominant theme, with ongoing tips and strategies for working with models indoors and outdoors not only at the Inn, but also a fantastic railway museum nearby. Hands-on shooting with multiple models and demonstrations in these unique settings will take everyone's portrait skills to the next level. Can't wait to share this beautiful part of the country with other photographers.
