I’m teaching a brand new course on B&W photography at The Chang School of Ryerson University.  You’ll learn about the uniquely photographic world of the B&W image, how to capture, render and print stunning monochrom photographs.

The B&W image forms the very roots of photography, and you’ll be learning how to master the craft and aesthetics of this artform.

The course runs Tuesday evenings, from March 1 to March 22. Here’s the link to the course page on the Ryerson website: DIGITAL B&W PHOTOGRAPHY

Registration is open now for certificate students, general registration opens on Feb 22

The Creative Nude Workshop: April 29

March 22, 2012

The body always expresses the spirit whose envelope it is. And for him who can see, the nude offers the richest meaning. -Auguste Rodin

Learn how to light, pose and photograph the nude figure from a true master of the art. Acclaimed fashion and figure photographer Struan will share his knowledge and insights on capturing the beauty of the nude. Then you’ll be able to put these into practice for yourself in a shooting session.

Workshop Schedule: Sunday, April 29 2012
Location: My studio in Liberty Village, Toronto
Cost: $300 & HST (includes lunch) 

9:30- 12:30 The morning session will start with a discussion of the technical and esthetic issues of shooting the nude, including lighting, lens choices, posing, perspective and “seeing” the form. You’ll observe Struan as he photographs our models, and see the results live.

12:30-1:30 Lunch Break in studio.

1:30-5:30  Students photograph the models, working in small groups. A variety of backgrounds and lights will be available. Struan will assist, providing pointers and tips.  You’ll have an opportunity to shoot at least three models on a variety of sets, so you’ll emerge with a complete selection of creative nude photographs for your portfolio.

This workshop is limited to 12 students, and is very popular, so register early to ensure your spot.  A $50 deposit is required.

Explore the unique world of Black & White Photography

March 16, 2012

Black, white, shades of grey…. the world unique to photography.  Black and white was the original voice of the photographer, and is currently experiencing a resurgence of interest.  Our digital cameras, software and printers now allow us to create B&W images with tonal range, tonal control and print permanence that far surpass what we could achieve with film and chemicals.

Join me for a full day of exploring this fascinating world through this new workshop.  We’ll spend the morning examining the tools and techniques used to create stunning B&W renditions of our digital captures.  We’ll also look at how the B&W image differs from the world of color, and what we have to do to create powerful images in this unique medium.

In the afternoon you’ll work with your own images to make B&W prints on a variety of printer and papers.  We’ll work one-on-one to improve your images and produce prints you’ll be proud to display.  You’ll come away with a richer understanding of this uniquely photographic medium.

This workshop will take place in the state of the art digital classroom at 44 Wide, and we’ll have access to their printers (both Canon & Epson) to produce prints up to 24 in.

Workshop Details:
April 14   10:00- 4:00 (with a 1hr. lunch break)
Location: 44 Wide, 171 East Liberty Street, Unit 122
Cost: $250. including materials and HST
