What could be better than the tumbledown texture of a ghost town, and the beauty of dancers and models, combined to create beautiful, moody portraits? In this special workshop, photographer Fritz Liedtke is combining two of his favorite things–historic places and beautiful faces–to teach you how to create stunning portraiture.
Join us for 3 days in the John Day River Territory, in north central Oregon. We’ll gather at PJ Ranch, where Fritz will share from his 30 years of experience photographing people. You’ll learn about professional lighting (natural light and off-camera flash), building rapport with subjects, posing, strong composition, good clothing choices, camera and lens options, and much more. We’ll spend time at ghost towns hidden in the local area where Fritz will give demonstration shoots, and then you’ll have hours to photograph with models and dancers, with his oversight and input. Fritz takes a hands-on approach to learning by introducing you to a concept and then letting you apply it immediately, with his feedback. It’s the best way to learn.
But the workshop doesn’t end there. In the weeks following the workshop, you have the option to sign up for an additional 1-on-1 consultation, looking over your final work and giving you further insight for improvement. We want you to end up with photographic confidence, professional insight, real-life experience, and photographs you are proud of.
If you’d like to try out some new photo gear, our sponsor ProPhoto Supply will give you a significant discount off a rental item for the weekend, and our sponsor Lensbaby will have their amazing lenses on hand for you to create with during the workshop!
The Ghost Town Portrait Workshop is an all-inclusive 3-day experience. You’ll be provided with hors d’oeuvres and meals, lodging at the local inn (single or double occupancy), models and dancers to photograph, and all of Fritz’s attention. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss.
