10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (MST)


Taking lighting out of the studio and into the field can be a scary thing for a lot of photographers. Let photographer Jonathan Thorpe show you how easy it can be when doing on location shoots, combining multiple lights to create not only dynamic images, but stories with a strong narrative element to them.
  • Learn why multiple lights can transform any location into your “own studio”.
  • Discover Jonathan's back to front method for lighting and why he thinks it’s incredibly easy to do so.
  • Learn how to light the environment your subject is in, and make it your own.

Westcott will be providing loaner gear and triggers for those who want to get experimental with strobe lighting. This class is suitable for all skill levels.
