More about this course

You might have seen a lot of courses and videos about portrait photography lighting patterns and usually they have something in common - the photographers are taking the photos in large studios and they are using a lot of lighting sources and most of them are expensive ones. This is understandable because of course the longer we work in the industry the more we want to improve and we need to stay competitive, and we often start investing in more and more gear.

But - a beginner photographer cannot afford all of that ! There are not enough videos showing how you can learn and practice the lighting patterns, even if you have very limited resources.

This is why I created my video course. I wanted to show beginner photographers that they can do a lot even with cheap lighting, even in a tiny space. Not having all that fancy gear that a lot of photographers are showing and often promoting, is absolutely fine, and it is not an obstacle.

The best thing you can do is start learning the patterns as early as possible so when your clients arrive - you are prepared :)
