There are a few pivotal events in my life that I can single out as instrumental in my transition from a khaki and polo-shirt wearing real estate broker (not that there’s anything wrong with that) to my current life as a full-time professional photographer. At or near the top of that list is my introduction to Kenneth Linge. I met Kenneth several years ago. It was during this class in 2007 that the light turned on for me (both figuratively and literally) in my approach to photographing people. Kenneth is an extremely gifted and award winning photographer and freely shares his years of experience in his teaching clinics.
Roll the clock ahead to 2010, and not a day goes by when I am creating imagery that I don’t use some of the skills that I have learned from Kenneth. In the years since our first introduction I have had the opportunity to take several more of his classes as both a student and an assistant. I will forever be thankful for Kenneth’s friendship that began on that fateful Monday in 2007.
The reason for today’s post is to say that there are still a couple of spots left for tomorrow’s Photographing People Part I class that Kenneth is teaching in his Orem (Utah) studio. I have been involved in this class numerous times and can say that it is a great starting point for any photographer that wants to improve their photography when it comes to people pictures. Capturing great images of our fellow human beings can be a struggle for many shooters. I have known some great wildlife/landscape/still life photographers that literally freeze up with fear when it comes to shooting a portrait. This class can be a great step in overcoming that anxiety.
The class isn’t cheap at nearly $300, but as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”. The combination of small class size and Kenneth’s years of experience create a great learning environment. And guess what? As an added bonus the students to this weekend’s class will also receive a highly-desired-and-heavily-sought-after ticket to this year’s sold out Photocamp Utah. I know – wow!
And yeah, I know this post looks kind of like a long-winded advertisement. Rest assured, I receive no compensation from Kenneth – I just believe in his product and want to help a good friend succeed.
