Russ Harrington

Assign 30 Photographers the same subject at the same time, and most of the images will look like siblings. Your choice of light sources, and how you use them, defines your distinct style. Do you understand the nuances of strobes, ambient light, soft boxes, umbrellas, beauty dishes, strip lights, reflectors, (and more)—and how they react together? You can.

For the first time in his career, Russ is openly sharing his secrets, lighting techniques, and tips.

What effect have digital technology, an angry economy and a new generation of photographers made on an ancient art form?

How has the fact that everybody carries a camera in their pocket affected the perceived value of our work?

How can you know where we’re going, if you do not know where you’ve been ?

Covered will be historical perspective, composition, lighting and posing, balance and style. All supported with audiovisual presentations and hands-on demonstrations.
