An online membership where I guide photographers that aren't comfortable with lighting in a simple and consistent way of learning so that they can shoot images creatively and with confidence, being ready for any lighting situation
Justin Clemons has nearly 20 years of experience in photography. He has shot for WSJ, Forbes, TIME, Nike, HGTV, Dolce & Gabbana, Discover, among others. He will guide you in an easy to understand and consistent manner
You will have weekly content through tutorials, BTS videos, expert interviews, photo-shoot guides and layouts, implementations and constructive critiques
We will have an amazing community that will encourage and move you along this journey. We will help each other get unstuck, suggest ideas you haven't thought of, and challenge you to reach your full potential.
You will learn lighting in a slow and consistent way of learning, through every aspect of photography lighting. Justin will be available for questions when you get stuck or overwhelmed.
Justin will teach you lighting in a way that allows you to be comfortable and confident, being able to focus on your creativity. You will no longer only have one "go to" lighting set up, but you will be able to let your concept guide your lighting, having a multitude of ways to get your visual stories across.
Never again are you overwhelmed and nervous about the bad available light in any location. You know how to control the light and will be able to create intriguing images in any situation.
"This has been so incredibly awesome and an invaluable tool."
"I appreciate how relatable you are. You have a way of simplifying things to where lighting doesn’t seem so unachievable."
"This has been the best investment I’ve made to help advance my technical photography skills."
"This was an awesome one! I used it and it works like magic! - referring to “Matching Tungsten Light” tutorial"
"The community and opportunity for feedback from people who know what they are talking about is so valuable and worth admission on its own. Not to mention the tutorials and expert interviews."
"In the past, if my first few shots were coming out bad, it would through me in a tizzy. I’d feel embarrassed and overwhelmed. Now, I think through what I know and have learned and confidently make the proper adjustments to my lights."
"Love it! Great opportunity and amazing teacher!"
The Foundation course is 4 months long. After 4 months, you can continue in the membership for more advance classes and continuation of your progression if you would like.
On average, you would need to dedicate about one hour a week to the course. You will also have "Creative Assignments" (about once every 3 weeks or so) which would be on top of that one hour. This really helps you take in the lessons you have just watched.
Every week you will have 2 pieces of content to watch, which ranges from teaching tutorials, BTS videos and expert interviews.
Once a week I do a Facebook Live where I explain what is happening for the week and what to expect. During this I also answer any questions you might have.
We have a private Facebook Group where we are sharing work, wins and challenges. Myself and the community are here to encourage, help and challenge you to massive progression in your photography.
You do need to know how to use your camera. This isn't a course teaching you camera skills.
This course is specifically on learning lighting. You don't need to know anything about lighting starting out. We will slowly get you to a place to where you know your lights and how to use them. It is very helpful to have some lights, so that you can complete the assignments that are given.
If you are a little more advanced in your lighting, this class would still be great for you. You will get a deep understanding of light and it will still challenge you to progress in your lighting capabilities.
This course is for anyone wanting to know about lighting. I have had, wedding, portrait, editorial, advertising, food, product, architectural photographers and more.
NOOOOO! This class is so much more! Justin will be your guide through this whole class. You can ask him questions along the way and he will be interacting with you through the course. We have an amazing community that encourages you and pushes you to become better. You will have some Creative Projects and get feedback on those projects over zoom.
This is so much more then just a set of videos!
