Seattle PFRE Workshop: Featuring Scott Hargis Lighting Session

Published: 24/02/2008
By: larry

Registration is now open for the Seattle Photography For Real Estate workshop on April, 25. Click here for the schedule and full details. Or click on the Seattle Workshop button along the top of the header image.

Scott Hargis has agreed to fly up to Seattle and present the first ever Scott Hargis Lighting with Multiple Strobe session. For those not familiar with Scott's work, Scott has adapted the Strobist style (off camera, multiple strobe) of lighting to interiors. This style is ideal for real estate photography because it results beautifully lit interior images without a truck load of lighting gear.

In addition to Scott's lighting session there will be a session on real estate photography marketing, post processing and equipment demonstrations by Glazer's Camera Supply. Breakfast and lunch are included in the $100 workshop price.

This workshop is being organized by Ron Kenny (captainronsphotos in the PFRE flickr group). Thanks Ron for your leadership and hard work in organizing this workshop.

  2. Vince, you'll get your wish --- Thomas Grubba & I just spent two 18-hour days filming a DVD set on interiors. There's still a lot of work to be done, but you can expect an announcement of a release date by late spring.

    Unfortunately there won't be video of my portion of the Seattle workshop.
