Mixed Light and Dance Workshop with John F Cooper

HelCat Studios is super proud and excited to welcome a very special guest instructor to teach in our space, John F. Cooper


Cooper's work has been appeared in many publications over his extensive career including Elle, Allure, Rolling Stone, and Vogue just to name a few with clients ranging from BMW to Vassarette.  One of his most extensive projects that was recently published in December 2015, was a large format coffee table book, "Organic Portraits."  This long running series of images all combine natural, organic hair fabrications photographed using traditional 4x5 and 8x10 Polaroid film.

Cooper's work has always had a unique and striking aesthetic.  A large part of his unique style is his ability to combine different forms of lighting.  Cooper will spend four hours showing workshop attendees various lighting setups to shoot fashion and dance. Some of the lighting scenarios will include Daylight plus tungsten, Daylight plus strobe, and daylight alone.

Workshop is limited to 8 photographers... $250 per person
To reserve your spot please purchase ticket below... address and parking instructions will be sent shortly after purchase.
