holy cow

About two years ago, I heard about a school for photographers called the Texas School. In all of my courses, both my instructors and classmates highly recommended this week long learning event. I was so intrigued and really wanted to attend, but the school is usually held in South Texas. Well this year, due to renovations, the program is coming to Dallas! People from all over the country flock to this "school", and instructors from all over the world attend to educate us photogs. After much thought, I decided to bite the bullet and enroll on January 3rd. Within the first minute, 600 people had applied. I just found out today that I am officially a student, and I was placed in the class I wanted. I am attaching a bio that the school wrote about my instructor. Very exciting news, which will only mean better pictures for all of you!

"Posing & Lighting with Dave Newman"
This popular seminar now comes again to us, at TSPP, for one full week and is simply one of those “MUST DO” programs. Important segments will include camera room posing and lighting and outdoor portraiture with loads of business savvy thrown in. A wide variety of other topics include: understanding facial structure (Physiognomy), lighting ratios, locating and applying suitable props, and better studio business strategies. Learn the techniques of masterful classic and traditional portraiture from the essentials of posing and lighting to studio operation savvy with an eye on substantial profits from your studio.
Dave’s success story is evidenced by his outstanding award-winning portraiture stressing simplicity and ease of execution. This is a fast moving week and covers many important common-sense matters relating to professional portraiture and studio survival.
Widely known for his “camera room” layout and design books and informative articles, Master portrait artist Dave Newman has also been designated as “Photographer of the Year” at four different annual conventions. He has taught seminars in England, Australia, China, Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Mexico and Korea, in addition to the frequent schools and conventions in the USA. Few have traveled and lectured more widely. But Dave is most noted for his witty classroom approach and the admirable combination of teacher, artist and successful businessman.
He holds England’s highest degree (Fellow) in the British Master-Photographer-Association, and the same in the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (UK).
This is an info packed course ... bring your notebook and expect to LEARN.
