As a Canon Explorer of Light, one of the highlights of my work with Canon is being able to pass along the knowledge, but more importantly, the passion I have for for creating compelling images. That is why I am excited to announce my upcoming portrait workshop in Boulder, Colorado as part of the Canon Portrait Photography Tour: Explorers of Light Share Their Secrets.

Top Photographer, Tyler Stableford, Shot this Pic of an Athlete after an Intense Workout at a Cross-fit Gym near Aspen, CO.

In this intensive one-day portrait seminar, I will share my award-winning secrets for capturing world-class portraits with both fashion models and athletes. This lecture & demonstration is tailored to photographers looking to raise the bar using professional portraiture and lighting techniques.

Whether you’re an indoor photographer, outdoor photographer, or both, this workshop will help you ‘see the light’ and gain confidence with lenses, lights, reflectors, and models. This workshop will include an athlete model as well as a fashion/lifestyle model, providing a wide range of lighting and posing demonstrations, as well as tips for coaching the best performances from your subjects during any portrait session.

Key Takeaways:
  • In today’s market, great posing and lighting skills are so important… cameras, lenses, and computer techniques will only take you so far.
