Light & Fast Seminar recap

WOW!!! Thursday’s Lighting Seminar was such a rush. Big thanks are in order to Samy’s Camera and Marty Glickman of Profoto for donating all of the lighting gear that John demonstrated. Thank you to Shannon Lott for taking photographs throughout the day and to Adam Lopez for video taping. Also thank you to everyone who attended – you are the reason the seminar was so great! I can’t believe the number of people who flew in (from as far as South Carolina, Florida and Connecticut to name just a few states) to participate. Check out some of the super nice comments!!

“I learned more than my college courses in only one day! wooo hooo! I wanted to thank you so much for all that you showed me. You’re an incredible girl with a enormous heart. I admire the fact that you will share what you know with others, not many people like that in this world…. I will forever keep the information I learned as my foundation. ” Christina – Bakersfield, CA

“Valuable ‘how to’ information. I love John & Jules’ work and feel they provide excellent perspectives on lighting.” Matt – Virginia Beach, VA

“Jules covered exactly what we were looking for! This seminar was absolutely perfect!” Meg & Charles – Pensacola, FL

“Helpful, comprehensive lighting info!” Jennifer – San Luis Obisbo, CA

“I believe that this information will make me a better photographer!” April -Rancho Cucamonga, CA

“It was really great how you both were so open to show how you did things. The best was just the seeing the little nuances that you do while shooting.” Jan – San Diego, CA

The fabulous John Mireles:

Here I am wrapping up my presentation:

Our fantastic participants:

John used me as a model for a few of his lighting set-ups, and I loved how the images came up on the wall seconds after he shot them!

And a big group shot to end the day!

    Hi Jules – Just thought I’d wander over and check out the photos from the day. I like the one of you with one of my shots in the background. Cool! I didn’t even know Shannon was taking photos.
