Tony Gale

Tony has taught photographic lighting at FIT in NYC and Parsons the New School for Design , judged photo contests, and has traveled the country leading workshops for American Photographic Artists.

Workshop Description

Focus on capturing the essence of your subjects as well as establishing a deeper connection as you learn to create memorable portraits from the pros. Determine the best way to work with singular and group subjects, utilize continuous and flash lighting, leverage accessories to strengthen your portraiture work and take your people images to the next level.

We invite you to meet us at a specially-chosen venue near one of our Camera Experience Shops. After a brief introduction, we will rotate through photo stations addressing various topics such as lighting, composition, capturing details, and considering various elements that make for a successful photo.

Enjoy continuous access to professional photographers and our Blue Shirt Camera Experts and take the opportunity to try out an array of lenses, cameras and accessories. Please bring a government-issued photo ID in order to borrow the latest gear.
