Into the Deep with Michael Muller
CAMP presents “Into the Deep with Michael Muller”, an intensive full-day adventure workshop geared exclusively towards 20 pro-am photographers looking to expand their lighting, scouting, and medium-format camera techniques and expertise. From finding a location to shooting in tight indoor locations, breaking the psychological barrier between your camera, subject and maximizing a location’s potential can be tricky and intimidating – especially when dealing with celebrities and sharks. This workshop is crafted to do just that and prepare you for a career as a highly sought-after professional photographer.
On the morning of September 26th, we’ll dive deep and teach the tips and tricks associated with location scouting within a 3-block radius, to be able to go anywhere, and look at things in a different way as well as break your white background comfort-zone barrier. We’ll find a way to shoot it, no matter what location you are in, and maximize its potential.
In the afternoon, we’ll not only cover a variety of scenarios, and find that perfect portrait angle and how to light it as you shoot models from Sophia Models; Michael will also show you what he’s learned from 30 years of experience shooting the biggest stars in the world.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, all attendees will have the opportunity to get their hands on the Phase One XF 100MP Camera system and you’ll receive an additional special perk: your very own copy of Capture One Pro 9 courtesy of PhaseOne and some editing techniques. Prepare those trigger fingers, come September 26th we’ll be shooting all day!
In this adventure workshop we dive deep and teach the tips and tricks associated with lighting setups, angles, how to get the maximum out of your subject in any location, how to shoot in the wild and break your white background comfort-zone barrier.
