Locaiton Portraiture & Lighting

Varanasi, India

We are pleased to announce the second Location Portraiture and Lighting Masterclass in Varanasi, India. We are teaming up again with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Guru and Wizard of Light Piet Van den Eynde. We will be releasing full details in the days to come. But let me assure you this will be an amazing class!

About The Class

We are purposely limiting this workshop to 6 members to keep the group intimate and to keep the teacher-student ratio an incredibly low 3:1!

This Master Class is limited to six participants!

What Our Clients Say

Shane Melaugh

“Best part of the review will be used as a title here”

“Having taken two workshops with these two wonderful educators and moved from a noob to shooting my first wedding this summer after only two years of shooting, I can attest to their skills in teaching photography. I can't recommend more highly this opportunity. If anyone wants to talk about my experience, feel free to pm me.I want to add that between my two trips with these two, our time in Varanasi was my favorite.”

“Best part of the review will be used as a title here”

“This is a workshop that will leave a lasting impression. Take the hectic street life and colorful people of Delhi, Varanasi and surroundings. Add Matt’s expertise to work with the local ‘talent’ and put the story into the picture. Spice up with Piet’s mastering of dramatic composition and off-camera lighting. Then top off with your own photographic ambition and inspiration. Whatever your visual and technical skill level may be, your imagery will never look the same again!”
