In-Person Sales & Lighting Workshops | Newport, RI | 4/14-15/20


Day One | Lighting Workshop

JVS’ lighting workshops focus on portrait lighting techniques that can be applied to weddings, engagement sessions, and editorial shoots.

Using speedlites and strobed, JVS teach you his 5 go-to lighting setups, with modifiers and shaping tools. You’ll leave the workshop with a clear understanding of how to shape your lights with grids, gels, specialty umbrellas, ring flashes and portable soft boxes.

JVS will introduce you to all the tools in his kit, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to experiment with each one. He will demo each piece of equipment first, then you’ll get a chance to shoot and play!

Each student will be personally photographed by JVS and receive a finished digital negative. In addition, every student will receive a one-hour, One-On-One photo coaching session with JVS after the workshop. This is a great time to answer any questions that may arise after you’ve gone home and tried some of the techniques that you learned at the workshop.
