In the second half, we’ll venture outside into the natural daylight.
Lecture with interactive photo shoots.

More About the Workshop:

First, participants will learn the formula for how to make strong, clear, powerful
and poetic images using yoga as the foundation. Students will understand the healing power of photography to reflect back to our subjects that they are beautiful, worthy and significant. The camera, whether fancy or the phone, is a perfect excuse to pay attention to others and see them, and for them to feel seen. Participants will also learn and truly see how photographs have the power to evolve humanity in a more positive direction and change the world. Ultimately, they will gain the inspiration, confidence and knowledge to use their cameras from this moment forward mindfully and masterfully. After all, the camera is going to be a part of us for the rest of our lives. Might as well do great things with it!

A Testimonial from Navy Pilot, Elizabeth Corwin:
I’ve worked with Robert throughout several photo shoots and this class precisely captures the effort and ease with which photography should be approached. Robert shows us how to “SEE” before the camera ever becomes a part of the story. Then the story can truly be captured in its essence without any forced creation. He shares so many tips and tricks to “opening the aperture” of our vision to find the art and feel the energy in the space. It’s an exquisite experience by one of the true masters of human potential. It’s just so much more than a photography class, it’s a way of seeing life in all its complexity.
