LIGHTING THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL PHOTOGRAPY
Lighting is the heart of the photographic business. Regardless of the type of photography your interested lighting is the key to success.

I have over twenty years of experience as a professional lighting technician. I have worked in all mediums.
I can teach you the subtle differences that will take you from lighting a television studio, to location lighting.

The technique of shooting a band on stage at a nightclub, shooting a couple sitting at an inmate table in the corner,

in door or out there are many tricks to making your project lighting a success.


How the scene is lit and how it looks to the eye of your camera can determine the success of your project.

SOUND QUALITY GOTCH?
As an old friend told me when I first started in the business. Sound will never make a great story.

But, it sure can destroy a good one. Having bad sound is the worst thing that can ever happen.

No one will care about the story or look at the pictures if the sound is bad they simply turn it off.

The secret of sound is knowing what is good sound and what is acceptable sound in the conditions your working with at the time.


So, if you’re tired of getting poor quality sound? Let’s sit down for a couple of hours and I can advise you how to fix certain problems.
