Photography of People August 5 – 11, 2017

August 5

| $1395

Presented by Tony Rizzuto and Jeremy Lurgio

Why? No matter how the world changes from day to day or generation to generation, people (us!) will always be what makes the world turn. From the musician playing a guitar on the sidewalk to the rancher moving cattle to the astronaut preparing to explore outer space … our world is full of fascinating characters. This workshop is your opportunity to learn to photograph people like a pro, with two pros leading the way. Portrait photographer Tony Rizzuto and photojournalist Jeremy Lurgio take you to a variety of locations including the Western Montana Fair and a barrel-racing school in the tiny town of Arlee—to teach the techniques, etiquette, and art of capturing people on camera.

What? Throughout this week, your instructors and experiences will put you on the fast track to becoming a better photographer. During this course you will:
