All Day Senior Portrait hands-on workshop sponsored by PPSO June 1st 2015

You are invited:

Anyone and everyone who has an interest in learning the business of senior portrait photography is welcome to attend this all day workshop at the Pendleton Art Center in Middletown,  between Dayton and Cincinnati Ohio.

The Pendleton Art Center, 1105 Central Ave., Middletown, OH 45044

This is a hands on workshop, so bring your camera

We have several models scheduled for the day and our instructor for the workshop, Mike Osborne will be helping you to see the light and get the best angles to provide your client with that wow factor that gets them talking to their friends about your work. There will be several opportunities throughout the day to shoot your own images using our models.  (Model releases will be available to those who provide three full resolution image of each model they photograph without watermarks - these are to be completed images as if for a client and will be available free to our models for payment for their time and efforts for us. Images from this workshop may NOT be used in image competitions).

Studio lighting set ups

We will have several studios set up with different lighting set-ups so that you can see what each looks like and learn how you might use them yourself.

The workshop starts at 9am and goes until 9pm on Monday June 1st, 2015. Since we are not including dinner in the price this year (there are lots of options available in the area) we have lowered the price from prior years. Box lunches will be provided. (if you have a restricted diet for any reason, we suggest that you bring your own lunch).

Only $79 for an entire day of learning the business of senior portrait photography including shooting, and inspiration.

Mike Osborne and some of his work

I started my photography career in 1986. Photographing weddings, families and HS seniors. Today I mostly concentrate on HS seniors and Families. I have always been on the leading edge of today's photography. Learning and teaching new techniques. Digital has opened the door to so many creative possibilities. I am also a speaker for photography on the subjects of families and HS seniors. I speak at many state and local conventions. I am also currently on the Executive board of the Professionals Photographers of Ohio.   I hold a Photographic Craftsman Degree through the Professional Photographers of America and a Certified Professional Photographers degree through the State of Ohio.
